The Strange Phone Call – #6

“I won’t let you do that… Your enemity is with me not my sister! Leave her… ” 

But before he could complete that , the phone ended. 

I cannot let that happen. She is all I have… ! I cannot even bow down to his demands else many Innocents would be in danger. He thought

He pounded in to blank wall with anger. 

“Uhhh.. that girl! Only she can give me some link! And I can’t even let her be in danger. She is so… ” His eyes softened. “…So beautiful and so.. stupid. Why am I thinking of her .. I need to go and talk to her. I already failed once.. I can’t do any mistakes now. She already messed with my head too much. ”

….

“Mahek? Is everything ok?! ” Her mom was calling her from behind the door.she might have also heard the thudding voice she suppose. 

She was just going to open the door for her, when a strange figure stopped her hands from doing so. He bound her hands in one strong fist and covered her mouth with the other. 

“Don’t scream. I will not do any harm” he whispered in her ear. Mahek struggled for realease as her scream was slienced due to the strong hands. 

“Please don’t scream. I am sorry for this behaviour but please .. listen to me once.. .” 

It was him.. Siddharth. What is he doing now. She was scared.  

“Mahek! ” Is everything okay? Open the door.” Her mother was panicking now. So she agreed not to scream. He let her go.

” Ye..yesss! Mom! I’m good. It was .. umm.. it was a cat! I’m good! ” She tried to say being normal and instantly got embarrassed due to the lame reason.

“Okay.. take care sweetheart” and she went.

“A cat…. Hahahahaha! Seriously? “He was laughing.  She was confused at his reaction. 

“What? ” she tried making sense

“Nothing.. A .. cat? Do I look like a … Cat?! ”  He laughed hysterically.

“Well.. I couldn’t think of any other reason .. but hey.. what are you doing here sitting on my bed and laughing like you own it.”

” Don’t be mortified​” 
“Why am I supposed to feel mortified. I am not.”

“Then what’s that blush on your cheeks?.” 

“What ?!” She got uncomfortable and angry.

He stood up from the bed heading towards her. “This blush…” Slightly brushing his fingers on her cheek causing them to redden more.

“Is it… What I think?” He stared in her eyes.

Mahek was conscious of her existence now. Sweatpants , messed hair and a lame loose tshirt. 

“What?!” She was getting more and more red. 

She snapped him away. 

“What are you here for?! ”

His look got serious. “For my sister..” he sighed. 

“I am sorry for my behaviour last time . But my sister is in serious trouble.. she..”

His phone rang suddenly. He took it.. “No.. stop it.. ok I am coming…” 

“What happened?!” 

“They are going to kill her if I don’t go. I need your help else many Innocents would be in danger..! Trust me! “He said.

“My help ?!” 

“Yes! You are the only link.” 

“What?!” 

Is any new mystery waiting for her..
