So I a back to bore you all. Pls try to tolerate me and my writing…
Link for the intro
So here is the prologue
His pov :
I was in my car on the way to my office but currently stucked in traffic. I am frustrated about Bangalore’s traffic system. It nearly takes three hours for me to reach the office although my office is only 10 kms away from my apartment. I hate this life in Bangalore. It’s not only because of the traffic jams but because of this extreme heat. It’s almost like reaching 43°c . I have also heard that water shortage have reached into its extreme level. People in city may not get bothered about ig but people in countryside are surely suffering because if it.
I took some files and ran my eyes through it. I was frustrated when I saw some miscalculations in that. If I go into office in this mood , my PA is gone.
At last the traffic moved and I throw the file to the back seat and started the vehicle. But I was again forced to stop. I was surprised as it was not a place where regularly blocks were there. I gets anxious when I saw people moving out of the vehicles and surrounding ahead. I get out of my vehicle to find out what was happening. My guess was that, it was an accident.
I tried to get to the front to see what’s going on. As I pushed myself in , I saw some girls were literally crying and was covering their as they can’t tolerate that scene. I was more shocked and at last I reached at the front. The scene I saw was not only shocking but also heart breaking. It was a kitten, no lifeless body of a kitten lying on the ground. There was no blood, no wound or any other thing. But it’s lifeless eyes were open which looked scared. It was really a dreadful scene.
I backed away from there as I can’t stand that situation anymore. I was much affected with it. Someone moved that lifeless body from there and traffic was cleared. As I moved back to my car, I heard a couple of people talking.
” It’s not an accident , there was no blood or wound, then how did it die ? ” , One person asked with a painful voice.
” It’s the heat. Even humans are finding it difficult to stand against this heat, then what could these small animals do ? I don’t think it have even get water for 2-3 days.” , the other person replied in a dreadful voice.
‘Because of the heat ‘ . That phrase could never move from my mind. I get in my car but my mind still somewhere else. I started the engine and drives to my office. I was not at all concentrating in driving. It was really a luck that I reached the office without creating any accidents. That kitten’s face could never leave my mind.
I get down from my car , tossed the car’s keys to the security to park it as usual. I walked to my cabin directly . I sat on my chair. There was water bottle in front of me. I took it , opened its lid and and poured the whole water into my mouth. I put it down. I was still in that incident’s shock.
Next minute my PA into my cabin with some letter on her hand which had the power to take me out of this trauma.
It was sealed perfectly and I didn’t wasted time in looking at the address and all but I directly opened it. I took the paper that was stuffed inside it. It was upside down and I turned it. What I saw was one of the biggest shocks in my life.
It brought back the angry young man in me. The first thing I wanted to do was to tear it into pieces and flush it and I was about to do that but my inner voice stopped me.
Why can’t I move on ? Tearing this paper will mean that I still can’t forget her. If I didn’t send it back signed then she would win. She could say that I can’t get away from her trap and that will hurt my ego and I will not allow that to happen. I took the pen and I signed it . I sealed as it was and asked my PA to send it back.
” So Mrs Swara Sanskar Maheshwari, No no no Swara gadodia , you are really happy without me, isn’t it ? Not only you I am also feeling really good without you ???????? ”
Hi guys, this one was my real feelings. I used Bangalore in this but I don’t know if it is hot in Bangalore or not but Kerala is and I am living in the hottest district of kerala. A few days before I found a dead cat in front of my house. It died because of the heat and I was so much disturbed by that incident. I couldn’t sleep that night because whenever I close my eyes that face comes to my mind. If I had given it some water and shelter, it might be alive now. But I was scared. I am scared of cats ( because of a childhood incident ) and I didn’t. I had seen it roaming around my house for 2-3 days but I couldn’t understand what it needs but I was bothered to stay from it because I feared it may scratch me.Maybe it died because of my fear and that guilt conscience is getting over me.
I am sorry guys. Actually it was not the prologue I planned but somehow I wrote it like this. I am really sorry for boring you guys ??. I know there’s nothing about my story in this unless the last part, I’m really sorry.
