The Endless Victory

The Endless Victory

Tension grew gradually with temperature. The wind had ceased its blissful dance a few minutes back leaving the environment blank and humid. A little bead of sweat rolled down his left cheek leaving a trail behind. An aching leg coupled with heavy breathing made it difficult to focus on the mission. After a nasty chase, the culprit was finally in sight, hiding behind the large water tank on the rooftop.

He took a deep breath and started moving slowly & swiftly towards the crook, careful not to attract the unwanted attention. However, the awfully quite environment did not play along. The crook felt his presence & an escape plan was immediately in motion. But determined as he was, pursuit followed. With quick big steps, he caught up with the crook within a few seconds. The restricted surrounding of the roof did not actually make it a hot pursuit area. But the crook wasn’t ready to give up that easily. Making a quick sharp turn, the crook turned and kicked his right hand, launching his handgun in a parabolic motion a few yards away.

A dramatic fight followed. A few light punches here and some loose grapples there. With an unprecedented move, he finally managed to kick his way out. He quickly reached for his gun, picked it up and faced the crook with a satisfied smile.

“You are under arrest Gopi!” he finally declared, panting heavily. The crook still lay on the floor with a dissatisfied look.

“Hahaha… I finally caught you… I won!” he continued with excitement.

“Yeah… Whatever! I let you win!” the crook said in a rusty voice, dipped in defeat and anger.

“Now it is your turn to be the police and my turn to be the thief. I bet you won’t be able to catch me this time.”

“I will just count till 10” the recently turned policeman said taking the toy gun from his hand.

So they go on, one against the other, exchanging roles and victories. Their dedication to win surpassing their loss of defeat. The loser does not actually lose anything, but the winner takes it all.

The Protector

The Protector

In the dark night of December, he was standing firm in front of ‘Vilas Villa’. He was holding a lantern which was illuminating the surrounding upto few yards. He had covered his body by white shawl yet the cool breeze of December was piercing his skin. He had a wrinkled old face and he smelt like a carcass.

He had been protecting Vilas Villa for last twenty years and not a single man had entered in the villa without being in his scrutiny. The entire village used to sing his loyalty he had for the house.

Few meters away,a man in black overcoat was passing through the street. He had a compass shaped electronic device in his hand. He was constantly looking at it. It was beeping slowly and red light in it was twinkling at times. As he moved forward, beeps began to grow louder and frequent and finally turned into a loud continuous beep. He found himself in front of the building. Nameplate on it read ‘Vilas Villa’. He looked through the gates and moved forward to open it. ‘Yes, this is the place.’ He thought. Suddenly he felt an eerie sensation on his back. As he turned back ‘No…’ a loud shriek of the man killed the silence of the surrounding.

*****

‘Where is the body?’ The chief investigator asked his assistant. He nodded towards the forensic lab. Chief investigator looked at the naked man lying over a bed. He was stabbed on his back. ‘Any suspects?’ Investigator asked wiping his forehead.

‘We have got the killer, sir.’ His assistant replied.

‘Who is that?’

‘The guard of the house. He claims that this man tried to thieve the house last night and when he caught him red-handed he began to run away. He followed him and stabbed his back.’

‘Is he in our custody?’

‘Yes sir.’

‘Good and have we got any ID of this man?’

‘Not yet, but we will get it very soon, sir.’

‘I need to visit the crime scene. Inform me if you get anything.’

‘Yes sir.’

Half an hour later Investigator was dead, stabbed on his back, lying on the street, in front of the ‘Vilas Villa’ His phone had one voicemail.

‘Negative sir, don’t approach the crime scene. We have got the ID of the man, he was the parapsychologist and the killer is not in the locker.’

I was sitting in that beautiful five star hotel where all the rich people of the town have their dinner with almost dead silence.
I too was busy in having a look at menu when my eyes fell on her. She was having a little fight with her boyfriend.
“I have told you so many times to wear lenses and avoid these grandma type specs for God sake.”
Her boyfriend shouted on her. She felt low, embarrassed and sad at the same moment and remove the specs.
I instantly wrote a note on a napkin and delivered it to her through waiter. She read it and smiled.
“Don’t change yourself for anyone. Don’t try to be his Ms Perfect because love in the name of accepting not altering.”
She took her specs and left to find her Mr. Perfect waiting for her somewhere in the world.

IF TIME STOPS…

In late Uranium age, Torman was a planet with beings whose bodies were made up of jelly like structure. They used to respire methane through their skins.

The Tormanians thought that they were the sole rational beings in the whole universe. They had advanced technologies like ‘calcitops’, ‘compucus’, ‘nuclear telescope’etc.

The TAA (Tormanian Agency of Astronomy) had discovered a new sickly blue-green planet in the solar system and named it ‘Earth’. They found that this tenth planet of the solar system was infested with other intellectual beings also besides them in the universe. They were very jealous when they became acquainted with this fact. They also found that people on earth never grew old. People of earth were always young. They had no misery, jealousy, bitterness among them.
Tormanian scientists made several investigations & research to find the reason for this utopia. They found that there is a place on earth called ‘Stone Henge’ , which is a castle of a very intelligent young man, Adam- who rules the earth. He had a large and beautiful clock in his castle which never worked and for the same reason it had earned the sobriquet of “stopped-time-clock”.

The  Tormanians with the help of ‘wireless sleuthing‘, had found that every night Adam rotates a dial in that clock due to which the time had stopped in it and hence the clock doesn’t work.

They were curious to know the reason for it. So, Torman Armed Force(TAF) was sent to the earth to retrieve that mysterious clock.
There was a devastating war between the Torman army and the Earthly creatures. The war ended very soon, with the effect,that the clock being seized by the Tormanians, who took it back to their planet.

Now a major change started coming over the people of earth. They started growing old. They acquired several diseases also. There was unhappiness, greed, hunger, bitterness, jealousy among them.
And on the contrary, the Tormanians had stopped growing. On their planet, Torman, old were now old, and young were young. So, this highlighted the magical power of that clock- which stopped the time.
At the beginning of Polonium age, Earth had also become quite developed & the scientists were trying to bring that clock back. But a comet named SUPRA struck Torman and and the planet was completely destroyed including that clock.

Since then, we have nine planets in our solar system and humans on earth are continuosly growing up & meeting their ends. Thus, there would not have been any jealousy, bitterness, cruelty, unhappiness, greed in the world if the time would have stopped…

STORY WRITTEN BY VIVEK….

Night of the Vampire – The Vengeance

Night of the Vampire - The Vengeance

The wind brazed against her delicate body as she hustled through the narrow streets, her mind fighting hard to keep pace with the body. Her fear-stricken eyes scanned every possible corner to find a way out; an escape route. She glanced back in between just to encounter the infernal shadow making its way closer with every passing moment.

She took a sharp turn and jumped over the brawny broken-wall just to land over the debris on the other side. She stumbled and landed to one side injuring her elbow in the process. She collected herself and with all her remaining strength paced towards the dim lit lamp-post, almost 50 yards away. Half-way through, a shadow dissected her way tackling her with all its force. She slumped into a panic attack as she saw a claw-like hand tightening around her neck.

A high-pitched scream flooded the eerie silence of the shady streets; a scream competent enough to give you goose-bumps during a comedy movie. Her body shuddered in a moment of frisson as she saw a smile emerging on the noxious face.

“Cut!”

Suddenly the shadowy streets were flooded with pale fluorescent lights emanating from different vantage points all around. Spot boys & instructors started gathering around the scene as the director rose from his chair. Soon the harsh scream was subdued by the great applause and cheering of the entire cast present. Her panic-stricken face was suddenly overpowered by an elegant smile as her lover finally kissed her, a long-awaited kiss, with the camera still rolling.

Illusion or Love

love-illusion

Yeah, I was feeling it. That was the best experience I ever had. The warmth of love, passion, care everything was hitting my senses. I closed my eyes. The warm air coming from a certain distance was now getting closer and deeper. I stupidly opened my eyes to sneak a peek of the incredible scene happening in front of me but after realizing it uncouth I immediately closed them without letting the source know about it. I wanted to feel it I wanted to wrap it in between my arms. And I did. I did it. Ha! I did it. A storm of emotions hit my senses as my lips touched the source of that warm air. We remained there of a quite a long time and eventually, satisfied and fulfilled our lips parted away.
