"Atleast, let's go home first" Neil said, directly looking into my eyes.
I understood that it was something only we should know and which is why we should be somewhere more private so I just nodded and took a deep breath. He stood up then and walked to the side table. He poured a glass of water and gave it to me. I shook my head, refusing to have it.
"Just have it, okay?" He said sternly.
Without any further silent argument, I took the glass from his grip and gulped the whole glass in one go. Neil took the glass back from me and placed on the table.
"I'll be back in sometime, be attentive" He said as he turned around and walked out of the room, leaving me behind with my thoughts.
The only thing in my mind was the face of that man, his voice, his smile, everything was so similar to what my father had. Thinking about these things, my eyes again filled with tears but this time I didn't let them come out of my eyes. Instead I shrugged off the tho
'This makes sense? This is all she has to say?' I thought."You actually trust me?" I asked her."Of course, you were the only one to trust me from the beginning and now as I think it through, I can know things" She replied, nodding.I nodded too."Now... your questions" I said, reminding her.She nodded and took her time to think. After a minute or two, she took a deep breath."Let's start from the beginning" She said as I nodded in response."My phone number? It was the same"It was surely not the beginning I was expecting but I'll have to answer if she's asking."It's the question I haven't got the answer for" I replied as I shook my head lightly while pressing my lips in a thin line.She nodded once and think again."My house...was just the same. Everything was similar. But when you asked me to go check my closet once again the very first day, it changed just then" She started."How?"
"Anjana would go to the interview and secure a job for me, right?" I asked myself. It's been days since I had 'the talk' with Neil. I had been having too many questions lately -about Anjana, about myself, about this world and about everything else. I also had have a nightmare or two. They were almost the same to the one I had in the hospital -Anjana was calling me to talk. It was mostly the running. Remembering the question again, I picked my phone up and texted Neil. "What if I find myself unemployed when I go back?" I typed and hit send "Anjana would not make me loose my opportunities at earth, right?" I again typed and sent. I waited for two minutes and when he didn't reply for another one, I face up and went to the kitchen. I, with super abnormal thoughts in my mind, started cooking for myself. It was sunday so I was at home. Being there, I never felt at ease, especially ever since Neil moved back to his place. Him being around made me at ease, mostly because of the fact t
Office was never a problem for me ever since I started working. Days were passing as if it had always been my thing to be there. Although Anjana never stopped contacting me with many different ways, I was never so determined before. I kept dodging her and soon I mastered the art of it. On the other hand, Neil always helped me out with every situation in the office or at home. We basically started doing everything together. Everything seemed like it was meant to be untill I got another call from an unknown number. But it wasn't Anjana. "Hey, Neil this side. I don't know but some lady paid me to call you" The guy on the other side said."Neil?" I asked."Yes and she told me to tell you that if you'll not come back, I'll snatch the reason why you want to stay there" "What does that supposed to mean?" "I don't know anything further. I'll be off then" He said and hung up.That's not how I expected things to turn out. I immediately called Neil without wasting any time."I know I'm late.
Neil's P.O.V."Just at the moment when I was about to propose to Anjana that we would take every measure to stop her from doing anything that she's planning, I changed places with my parallel buddy and the fact that he was in detention center due to which I ended up here is just so exciting that I am having so many illegal thoughts and I might actually end up in detention center in Anazeil too after killing my boss" I mumbled. The door opened and one officer with one guard entered the booth in which I was transferred after they found me in a suit. 'I mean of course. Nobody warned me before otherwise I would have changed into the detention center uniform' I thought."What does he say? How did he change into formals?" The officer asked the guard. "He says he doesn't know and that he just blinked for once and he was in this suit" The guard replied."Do you think we would believe this crap?" The officer said to me, his voice threatening. 'Do you think I believe this crap?' I thought w
