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 placed him on his table.
" We are going outside. So, You would be around many people or humans!. But don't be nervous. I will take care of you."
He had a gentle smile on his face. He caressed his hand gently over his head.
" Wait for me here I will be back, okay!"
While he was walking outside his room. Arjun turned towards him.
" Rhythm, you said I have 6 billion neurons… Perhaps you will be finding more inside his head. "
Although it felt as if he was joking but there was a sense of worry in his voice and in his every action.
' Arjun, aren't you saying too much about neurons… better study or you will be writing a whole book on them.'
He mumbled inside his head.
Arjun left the room with his thoughts rolling inside his head. He went to look for his aunt.
He changed into black trousers and a white T-shirt and sky blue shirt. These were selected by his aunt.
They both were ready. Arjun's father had already sent his car. Mary was going to drop him.
He went to his room, checked if he had packed everything he needed. He then took his backpack and asked Rhythm to stay on his shoulder.
Meanwhile, Mary had already settled the luggage inside the car.
She was sitting at the driving seat and Arjun sat next to her.
They were ready to leave.
Rithvik's home was in the main city. As they have been residing in the outskirts. They would be crossing half of the city while reaching their home.
As the car started. Rhythm came over to the window that was right in front of him. He turned blue. He kept watching outside as everything passed by. It was obvious that many questions were running inside his head.
Arjun was relieved to see him back in his form.
He felt sorry, for dragging his little friend along into the situation. They haven't even completed a single day since he brought him to his home. He wanted to know more about his friend. He wanted to teach him many things. But, right now he can't do anything about it.
' I was really worried about your Rhythm When your light suddenly became dim. I still don't know about it. I am afraid, I don't think that I will open that app ever again. I don't think that I will be able to take you back to the forest area even if you urge '.
He was thinking about everything he could in his regard. He was contemplating on whether to hide him from Ritvik or tell him the truth. If he will hide him then, how will he be able to do so? He didn't think about these things before.
Meanwhile, Rhythm was also thinking about many things. He did like the view that was going past him. However, his thoughts took him back in time.
In Fact, he himself had no plans to return to the forest area. For as long as he can remember he was stuck within that area. Aside from this fact. He was wondering if Arjun would leave him back. Truth was, he always felt that he was very different from other atoms. He felt he was weak among them. Atoms have always been a perennial source of energy. He never saw anyone going weak. But he has gone through many recovery processes. Although he recovered naturally he never understood why those things had only happened to him. Other than that, He had an ability to interact with every stage of life evolution from the spectroscopy World of atoms to Microscopic World of bacteria to Macroscopic world of humans.
This was not natural as he has only seen other atoms interacting at the spectroscopic level. More, he always felt distant from other atoms and molecules, where they were completely busy with their jobs. He on the other hand never had anything to do. He always thought it was because he was weaker than others. Moreover, it is true that he always felt afraid of humans. He had always felt familiar with some things and scared of others but he himself didn't know why he felt that way.
But, things have changed a lot for him now. He never felt distant or afraid of Arjun. In fact, It was as if, his lonely world was granted with a blessing when he met him.
When he thought of his last thought for a moment his light was very bright.
" Aunt, let's pick some snacks or food along, what do you say?"
It was Arjun who spoke up.
" I agree, I was also thinking about it. There is a good shop at the end of this corner."
"Let's stop by its side."
Mary said while bringing his car towards the shop. She stopped the car and went to pick up the food from the shop.
Rhythm looked over to Arjun as if he was asking why the car stopped. But to his surprise, Arjun had many other things to tell him.
" Rhythm, we are going to meet Rithvik and after much thought, I have decided to tell him truthfully in your regard."
Rhythm turned purple.
" I have tried to hide things from him before but I never succeeded you know."
Arjun thought about all the mischiefs he has done before and how he was caught by him every time.
Rthvik was a few months older than him. He was always like an older brother to him.
" That way, I will be able to protect you from others. "
Arjun had concern in every word.
Rhythm didn't know what to respond. Arjun tried to anticipate his response. It was as if Rhythm was saying to continue.
"A few years back, My father and Rithvik's father were working in the same company ' Sterlite Electronics'. Everything was fine. Until one day, an accident occurred while they were both addressing things at the factory site. Fortunately, no one died, But many were injured. It also resulted in some financial loss.
Where the Company should have taken the responsibility, they poured whole blame on my father. My father was head of the project, but it was a natural accident.
It was uncle Aarav who helped my father in collecting proofs and proving his innocence. It was only him, who helped him. "
Arjun still remembers about the things everyone went through during that time. He sighed heavily.
" So, you know Rhythm it is an evil company. They have a history of putting lives online to save their stardom and escape from their responsibility. "
It was during this time that I met Ritvik for the very first time.
Although during that time I didn't understand the situation. But I was watching my parents, their worries. I didn't know what to answer if anyone asks in regard to my father. Certainly, I become distant to others. "
" It was during this time that the most silent person of the class took me to his place. I still remember how he always took a stand for me. "
" Time has turned towards us this time. I won't back off, no matter the situation. "
" We will definitely find the true culprit behind all this. "
" Will you help me Rhythm?"
" 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
Rhythm flew over from Arjun's shoulder and ascended forward." Hey Rhythm, wait for me."Arjun followed Rhythm, he carefully hid behind the second building. Rhythm went further but when he found that Arjun was not there behind him so he came back to Arjun. Ritvik also reached him.The fourth building can be clearly seen from the place where they had been hiding. It was appropriately lit with limited lights on the corridors. Two Guards could be seen from the place. One of the Guard was sleepy on his chair but the other one was actively guarding the building.Arjun and Ritvik placed their bicycles by the side of the second building and carefully crossed their path and hid behind one of the pillars of the office building." My bag"Arjun asked for his bag showing him his anger. Ritvik gave him his bag, giggling inside on his response.
Arjun went to the section which was also near the power supply room. He checked all the computers but he couldn't locate the one he was searching for. He felt disappointed. But then he felt he wanted to check the computer, he wanted to know exactly what was wrong with them. He connected the computer to the power supply switch but it didn't get started. He checked another computer but the result was the same. He then remembered that all the computers of the office must be having a single power supply switch alike their computer labs.Arjun went into the power supply room. This room was darker in comparison to other places. Wherever he puts his torchlight he can find wire bundles and many different kinds of wires all around. He was trying to locate one switch that can open up the power supply. But his torch went off. It made the room completely dark. This really scared him for a second. He couldn't see anything.But he gathered himself up. He st
It was around 5.15 Am when Arjun opened his eyes. He blinked his eyes collecting all the yesterday memories. He saw that the lights of the corridors were back to normal. Ritvik was still asleep.'Rhythm'He looked for Rhythm.As if Rhythm heard him, he flew to him and sat over his lap. Arjun felt happy to see him. His light was back to normal." You… alright."" Yes"Rhythm replied to him.Ritvik also woke up, he found Arjun was awake and he also saw Rhythm. He felt assured to see them both. He saw the time. It was already 5.25 am."Let's get out of here," Ritvik suggested them.Arjun nodded. They both were recalling the footsteps they heard. They both had only one question.'Were they locked inside?'Ritvik went to check the door. They were not locke
At Sterlite Electronics...Sterlite Electronics was one of the known Companies in India. If any issue arises in the company they would first have their own investigation and their own trials.Only after confirmation, a person could be sued in the Civil Court.In the meeting room...There was an elliptical table. Many people and executives were sitting there with Arav on the opposite side. Room was filled with the noise of accusations and complaints.He was holding on his file in his hands tightly that he had been preparing even after being accused. He thought he would get a say to speak for himself. He had been waiting for his turn to speak for himself but the executives and people had no intention of doing it. They were completely engrossed in putting on accusations and blames. After a while, he understood that investigation had not been transparent. The whole investig
