Roshni was alone in her house, sitting on her daybed, near the window, which opens in there front yard. The front yard was covered with high walls. She was extremely worried and stressed looking out in the sky.
Early morning her brother had an accident and was badly injured, and he was admitted to the hospital ICU, her parents were with him. She was waiting for some update on brother’s health. This was the time when mobile phones didn’t exist and she was all dependent on the landline phone, or if someone returns from the hospital with some information.
She knew that it was severe accident and police would be there too, and it might be so much of hassle and pain for parents as well. What would be going on? What would have happened exactly? How mom-dad would be handling this tough situation? All the mind-boggling quest was going in her brain. She was surrounded by some unknown silence, even neighborhood seemed so quiet, just like nobody lived there. She never ever faced this kind before.
Unexpectedly a ringing of bells started “Chum… “Chum…”Chum” just like someone is walking wearing anklets.
She got alert and shook her head slowly out of her window and tried to see if someone is there. But no, no one was there! Little frightened, thinking it’s must be coming from outside, just to get out of her fright. The sound increased and it seemed someone is approaching her, it was kind of nightmare, now, she was really afraid.
Suddenly, she stood up, closed her eyes for a second and gathered all her strength and courage, to face it. She opened her room’s door, went outside checked the front yard and other rooms. She saw everything in the room with a deep eye, glanced at every object there.
The sound was gone already. Suddenly she realized it was her fear. The phone rang, she took the phone, her mom on other side informed her that her brother is now out of danger. And dad will be home soon! She smiled and thanked God!
