Arjun felt a little assured.
As the Assembly is over, now at least he won't have to be embarrassed before others. He was approaching his class but, his principal caught him.
'' Arjun, late again."
" Come to the office right away ".
Arjun thought in his mind..
' Ahhh! if I would have been 5min later, I would not have been discovered. Can't that busy square could've kept us more engaged. No, if only I would have been little slow, Ahh nothing now, Arjun be ready'.
Arjun followed his principal to her office.
'' May I come in..Mam. "
'' Yes, so What excuse do you have today?.''
The principal of his school knew almost everyone in the school ,be it a teacher or a student or any other person. She has been very efficient at her work.
'' Amm mm, We got stuck in traffic…. Mam ''.
'' Sorry Mam, I won't be late again''.
She moved her head disapprovingly and her phone rang & & & &..
" For now, I am sparing you "
"Don't be late again, At school you should be disciplined. "
" Yes, Mam"
Arjun left, he heard his Principal being busy with her phone call.
' It must have been an important call. Whatever fine let us rush to class now. ' He wondered.
When he reached his class, he found, his class teacher was about to start her lecture.
Arjun was standing in front of the class, wondering.. should he ask or get in silently. But why Ritvik didn't spare any place for him.
' He must have been late himself. '
'' Yes, late again, I saw Principal Mam called you."
"Grow up, Arjun. Get in fast, I was just about to start. ''
He found an empty place and settled himself.
Then the class passed from one period to another period. And day felt normal now. Soon it was break time. He thought to talk to his friend, who seemed a little off today. But strangely, he felt as if his friend was ignoring him. As he went past him without saying anything. But why?.
For now, he trusted him, there could be something, that had been troubling him, maybe he needs a little space now. After all, they have been childhood friends.
Arjun went to play football with others. Meanwhile, they were playing….
" Hey, you intentionally made me
" You are misunderstanding "...
Two of his classmates started fighting with each other.
' Today's day, is full of troubles, Why do you have to fight today again ' Arjun mumbled
As always, Arjun went between them to settle the fight. But he himself fell down and all his clothes got dirty.
Bell rang and it was time to go back.
' What a great day, is there something more '...He thought.
He got himself up, washed before going back to class. He silently settled down. Hoping not to be noticed by anyone now.
Again one after the other period passed and soon it was last period and it was science period.
Although Arjun like exploring things, he never liked attending this class. As his teacher never leaves any opportunity to pick on him.
Class started ...
' Good Afternoon Students,
I hope you had a great summer vacation. Are you ready for today's class.'
' Yes sir' Everyone replied.
' So, Every one of you, let's start today by checking your holiday homework'
' School have only resumed today, so you must have been exhausted already.'
' Have you all completed the holiday homework?'
' Yes sir'; half of everyone replied.
Meanwhile, Arjun was busy with his thoughts.
' Which homework, I have done all the homework right, Ohh noo.. Aunt Mary can make me do everything I mentioned, but what about the homework that I completely forgot, Arjun you are gone today, how can you forget something like it, especially about this subject '.
Fortunately, he had found the last place today and time went by quite quickly. But his teacher reached him. And he had no homework to show of course.
" Yes, Arjun where is your homework?".He stood up.
And Bell rang,&&&&.
School got over.
" I know you haven't completed your homework right!, I had given you so easy question."
'Why the sky is blue?''
'Well, All those who have not completed your homework do it, 20 times more.'
' You all can leave now.'
Arjun finally felt relieved, a really tiring day was over. He went to his bus like all children and had no mood to talk to anyone. And he silently sat down at the back seat.
The bus started and it went from one stop to another. He was looking outside the window and was occupied with his thoughts. He didn't notice that his stop went past him. He suddenly realized
'Hey, why didn't bus stopped, where is he now'. Did they go too far? '
He immediately rushed forward
"Driver uncle, stop the bus please!"
He realized that he was not too far, he is familiar with the area, he can walk back home. He had no energy to ask or explain anything.
Bus stopped. He stepped down.
In fact, he was in front of a forest area. Something enlightened his eyes. He had been there, a lot of times with his parents.
' Now that, I am here, May I visit the waterfall, I can make an excuse to an aunt, I won't take much long'.
He went straight to the fall and reached there in some time. He sat by the waterfall and started playing with rabbits. He was happy to find them again.
'Let me check the time.'
Arjun was allowed to keep a phone, but gaming and internet were locked, it can be opened only by elders of his family. It was because before Mary, he was by himself most of the time and this was something important to ensure his safety. His parents have taken permission from the school. However, he hardly opens it in school.
' I can stay only for the next ten minutes, Aunt would have started worrying by now!'
Then he started thinking about everything.
" Sky is blue, why does it matter? "
"Sky is black at night, isn't it yellow right now. "
"BLUE SKY, SO WHY EXACTLY ARE YOU BLUE".
Arjun was loud, as no one will be here. He wanted to vent out his anger, But he didn't expect to hear
BLUE SKY, PASSWORD ACCEPTED
And, He heard a sound as if a cracker would have burst out. . He was startled and the rabbit jumped from his lap, ended up shifting the stone nearby.
A silver, coated chip covering had burst out. He picked it up.
And a little dot of light was around him.
"Ah what is this, From where did the sound come from? What exactly happened right now ''
'' What happened right now?".
" What do you mean by, what happened? "
"Can't you see I got positively charged, my electron ran away, All because of you."
' Is he hearing things now?' Arjun thought.
" Who are you?" He tried to test if he really heard someone.
A little light was moving round and round.
He was surprised,
"Is This light is the one which is speaking."
He also started hearing a very familiar voice, that was slowly approaching him... He guessed who that person could be.
He immediately grabbed the chip with broken covering and placed it inside the phone cover.
He again heard
' Caught you, hey but where am I now?'
And who, is this…. Why does he seem a little afraid…
RH18 and Arjun were not only hearing each other but they were even able to sense what the other one was feeling.
Arjun looked around to find his aunt, he had recognized her voice but he was unable to find her anywhere.' Aunt probably turned the wrong way.'Meanwhile.." Caught you…. But.. , hey.. where am i now?"While RH18 was trying to catch his electron, he too went inside the mobile cover, with the chip.He thought..' But, which surface can bind me'.Then he came out, proudly through the cover. He flew towards Arjun, who was trying to look for his aunt.Arjun got startled .He realized, he was.. actually hearing the little light dot that was going all around him.The little light dot came towards his head and sat there.'' 7 billion neurons, a human! ''Listening to him, Arjun smiled.'' Ohh, I haven't heard su
'Hey Rhythm, I know you are enjoying it inside. But please come out. I am really very hungry.''How will i be able to have my lunch knowing you are inside?'Arjun was having his lunch with potatoes and his eyes were fixed upon the curry.Finally Rhythm came out.Arjun sighed with relief. This time Rhythm sat on the table besides Arjun.Things have changed for him. Just an hour before he was free to go inside or outside things that were around him. He always liked to play around. But now for the first time his actions were affecting someone.The lesson that comes to him this way is 'carefulness'. This is an important lesson for him.Barriers in our life on one hand put limitations on ourselves on the other hand gives us direction.As for Arjun, he was happy to see Rhythm
On opening up his phone, He tried to see if anything had changed inside. But he was unable to find anything and then his attention went to an app. He remembered that it was not something that was downloaded by him and it was entitled' PROXIMA CENTAURI '." Proxima Centauri, If I remember correctly then it is the nearest Star to Earth."Rhythm came over Arjun's shoulder.And he watched as Arjun clicked on the app. It opened up to show many many portals. The title of these portals seems to be in another language. However, he randomly clicked on these portals one after the other. All these portals consist of many tools. Arjun had absolutely no idea what they were about. But he was able to recognize one portal. So he stopped there.'This portal seems to be a programming portal. 'He thought.Arjun's mother was a software engineer so he knew som
After Arjun left, Mary decided to inform his parents in this regard. As she had expected, His parents agreed on Arjun's decision. As this was the least they can do.Meanwhile, Arjun came to his room and Rhythm followed him along. He was occupied with his thoughts and was completely busy in picking things up and putting them in his backpack. These things include books, helicopter, marbles, bottle spray etc.Rhythm kept watching him. He knew something had happened but he waited for him to explain.In the other room, Mary was busy packing his luggage. Arjun had his own room but all of his important belongings were kept in his parent's room.After Arjun completed his packing. He looked towards Rhythm. Then, He extended his hand again like a landing base.Rhythm came over and swiftly landed upon his hand. He turned indigo. He gently pla
" This incident affected my father greatly, Although everything sorted out in the end; he changed his job and came to management. My mother started working too."" If we didn't stop them, who knows how many more people will suffer "Arjun signed heavily and worriedly, As it had been very difficult for him to accept these situations. He never understood how someone could harm others.Rhythm didn't know what to reply. It was as if he was scratching his head, but he must say something.So, In the next moment, he swirled around Arjun. As he swirled around him, A blue light traced its path.Arjun blinked his eyes twice. It took him a few seconds to realize what happened just now. It was definitely a yes from him. He was both surprised and rejoiced inside. At this moment it was as if he forgot about everything." Rhythm one more time. Please.."&nbs
Arjun too stood up, he held him on his shoulders and pushed him on his bed back.Ritvik got startled by his sudden action." I want to introduce you to someone."Arjun replied to him, meeting his questioning look." Meet Rhythm "Arjun directed his gaze towards Rhythm who had been sitting by the window while they had been busy with their conversation.Ritvik looked over. He felt something passed by his eyes. But he was only seeing curtains that have been enveloping the windows.Rithvik's room was like Arjun's room in terms of size and architecture. His room was elegant in its own way. As the room had cream coloured walls which complemented with dark brown curtains that were enveloping two big windows. There was one window by the side of his bed. There was a small lamp on his study table. His bed was wid
" Maa, Dad, I wanted to ask you…."Arjun heard his voice as he passed by their room. He went back to Rithvik's room.As he opened the door. Rhythm was right there in front of him. Probably he was waiting for him to be back.Arjun got a little surprised as Rhythm flew over his shoulder."Did you miss me already?"He asked him with his pleasant smile." No"Rhythm replied to him looking towards the other direction.Then Arjun sat on Rithvik's bed.He extended his index finger. Rhythm flew over on tip of his finger.Arjun fixed his gaze over him." No doubt, you can amaze anyone."He always felt a little mesmerized as he looked over at him.
" I guess they may be going to sleep now. Let's get ready."." Yes"Ritvik nodded.As it wasn't appropriate to switch on the light back. They switched on the table lamp that had enlightened the room appropriately.They both changed into dark blue t-shirts and black trousers. They put on dark blue caps.They gave each other a good Hi-fi after they had dressed.Ritvik took out his sport's watch. He looked over Arjun as he noticed that he didn't have his beloved watch over his wrist."Take this"Arjun passed him a 'voki toki'.The Voki toki they had was not a professional one. But it was something that still works and could be helpful to them. And It had a hook behind it that could fix it on the belt.Though he was in the midd
