I didn’t expect such a good response. I actually thought my chapter did not get published. As soon as I logged on I got surprised seeing all your comments.
” I don’t get it. Why would we kidnap this girl for blackmailing Shivaay” Gayathri asks raising her hands in annoyance and curiosity.
“You don’t know this girls value” Roop’s says with a smirk pointing at Anika laying unconscious on the floor.
” You know I stayed at Oberios for a few days before they threw Mr out. One thing I can say clearly is that after his family, the only person Shivaay cares for is this Anika” Roop’s says with a serious look.
” if you are right then this is the key to all our problems ” Gayathri says with a smirk.
How can I be so irresponsible? If I made sure she was alright more early then the matter wouldn’t have gone out of our hands.
“Shivaay” I hear a stern voice, which breaks my thoughts.
” yes” I say with a flustered face.
” How many times did I call your name. Where are you lost? We have reached her house” Om exclaims.
” I… leave it. let’s go inside” I say getting out of the car and rushing towards the door. I ring the calling bell, which gets opened in an instant revealing a crying Sahil.
Rudra and Om comes and stands next to Sahil.
Sahil let’s us inside and asks while sobbing ” will my di be okay” ?
Om and Rudra sits on their knees and Om says ” don’t worry Sahil. Your di will be back home soon.”
” yes Sahil. Don’t worry. Bhaiyaa will obviously find her. After all Anika di is his personal water tank ” Rudra says and starts laughing at his on joke.
Shivaay and Om glared at Rudra and hisses ” Shut up Rudra”.
Rudra keeps mum and pouts, again earning a glare.
“Sahil, can you tell me the last time your di called you”? Shivaay asks.
” She called me in the afternoon. Exactly at 1:15″ he says checking his phone
“okay. My meeting was from 1:00 to 1:30. This means she went missing between 1:15 to 1:30. I will get all the CCTV camera’s checked” I say and call up the authorities.
” Damn it! There wasn’t any camera’s outside ” I exclaim after hanging up.
Suddenly I get a call from the unknown number.
This has got to be the typical cliche call from the kidnapper’.
I picked up the call to hear a familiar voice ” I know you are expecting this call Mr. Shivaay Singh Oberoi.”
“Gayathri” I guess.
” Yes. Its me Gayathri. So let’s not beat around the bush. I want something small in return for your dearest friend Anika.” Gayathri says chuckling.
” what is it” I say directly wanting to get to the topic.
“Its nothing much. I just want your brothers small art gallery.”she says.
” what in the living world! That’s my brothers hard work your asking for” I roar in anger.
“its your choice Mr. Shivaay” she says and hangs up.
I quickly explain her demand.
” Shivaay, my hard work isn’t greater than a life” Om says.
” What are you saying Om? Don’t even think that I am going to give up all your hard work so easily”
I say with anguish.
“But Anika” he says rising from the ground.
” I will deal with that. Don’t worry Sahil, just like your Om bhaiya said your di will be back home soon” I say ruffling Sahil hair with a smile.
I turn around to see Om and Rudra with open mouths.
“What”? I ask eying them suspiciously.
” You just talked sweetly to a person other than your family ” they say in a monotonous voice.
“The arrogant, insensitive, rude,narrow minded SSO is behaving in a civilised manner. Today crows will fly upside down” Rudra says.
“Hello, you are talking about your brother not a road side goon” I say angrily.
” Sorry” Rudra says pouting.
” On a serious note, Om you take Sahil along with you guys. I will take care of every thing else” I say with a serious face.
“You are sure that you will be fine all by yourself”? Om asks
I nod and they finally drive away.
I will find you Anika and I will not let Om’s hard work go so fast.
I inform the police in a hurry.
I ask the authorities to trace up the last call but it finally ended in vain.
I guess I have to go to the police station and talk to them directly.
As I was about to exit Anika’ house compound I hear a lady talking.
I peek in through the window to see Anika’s bus on the phone whispering ” SSO just left”.
This means she surely knows where Anika is.
I walk into the house and confront her bus.
“where is Anika” I ask
” don’t say you don’t know because I just heard your whole conversation. If you don’t say, you know what will happen” I say flashing my phone with ‘100’ dialled.
” I don’t know where she is. That’s the truth. A lady came up to me and offered me money and told me to keep her updated about where Anika went and is” she confesses.
” call her now ” I order.
She agrees in fear and calls her up.
“hello” I hear another familiar voice as it is in speaker mode
“Any new updates” the lady on the other side asked.
“Mam I.. I accidentally called you” she said panicking.
” I know you must be scared. its okay. I will trace the call but I am taking this phone” I say
I immediately get the number traced. As I was about to save the number on to my phone, so that I don’t misplace it somehow, I notice that the number has already been saved.
it was saved under Roop’s Aunty’s name.
She is the one along with Gayathri. I can’t believe this.
I set aside my shock and start driving towards the location the authorities had traced.
“This is some kind of forest. Well obviously it has to be a silent and isolated place” I speak to myself.
I spot an old warehouse, I make sure that I don’t make any sound . I slowly enter to see Gayathri and Roop aunty discussing something.
I slowly open my eyes as I get attacked by bright light. Slowly my eyes flutters and I finally manage to adjust to the lighting.
Suddenly I feel excruciating pain on my head. I involuntarily catch my head and wince in pain.
” where am I ” I mumble to myself.
I look around to see Gayathri and…..Roop aunty.
I can’t remember anything properly. I was waiting for billu ji’s meeting to get over then… then someone dragged me off and. . hit me on my head. Does this mean Gayathri and Roop aunty is behind all this?
I try to get up but suddenly Roop rushes towards me. ” you are not moving an inch” she says walking towards me.
I struggle to stand up and Roop raises her hand to slap me.
Before she could slap me I hear a familiar voice ” don’t even think about touching her “.
I follow the voice and see Billu ji walking in.
” billu ji” I whisper.
Soon how was it? Here is a long update!! plz comment your opinions.
