Listening to the acoustic  tune played by the Clavichord with pretty fingers by Misses Roy,with a smirk on his face, whistling with the tune, Yash ,sitting on the wheelchair at balcony and looking towards Roy's Apartment.It was a gleaming forenoon, the sun was set, and Miss Rita had completed his prayer while Khan returned from Haj.The door bell rang.
Yash,stopped whistling ,turned around his wheelchair and moved towards the door.He Asked "Who's there?". "Open the door Yash,I m too tired to tell the password",the feedback came.Yash felt that it might be  Priya.He unnbolted the door, it was Priya.
While Yash's sight comes down to  Priya's Western's jeans."I said u not to wear jeans ,when u will visit me.What the neighbours will Grip ,that a 20 years old lady comes to my apartment at dawn and worn jeans with sleeveless Tshirt and A Blueblood lady will do such things, ", Yash screeched.Priya at first didnt gave any attention to Yash's words but after a few seconds she claimed"In case if  u  will Marry me?".
"Dont joke , at least not now, as I am not in that state of mind to marry anyone ."grinned Yash."What! Now I have became Anyone to u!"Cried Priya."U make so little things an issue.When u will grow .Ur 21st Birthday is coming and now also U strife for such things"Said Yash and then pulled Priya toward him and just they were going to smooch when The door bell rang again...
"Who is now at this time? Priya can u open the door, as I got a urgent work to do ."requested Yash.And then Yash dashed toward the toilet."Ohh, this is that urgent work"Whispered Priya and then she moved towards the door."Password" asked Priya.
"Sweetheart I am here."a respod came.Priya understood that it was Ajay.She at first thought to wait until Yash comes but then she struck with the incident the day before when She was taunted by Yash for  misbehaving with Ajay.Then She without waiting any more opend the door.A hand comes and hold her fingers and Ajay said"Will u Marry me?"
"Fuck off"Blowed Priya and opened his fingers from the clutch of Ajay."Who is there Baby?"Asked Yash."Its your insurance Comapny's Doctor "responded Priya."Oh Ajay,But now,at this time,Is anything fluctuating"Asked Yash."No,No bro,no problem.I just came to visit.......U!"replied Ajay with a low pitch shrill voice.And then all three sat and discussed about the previous day,how Yash passed at that apartment with Priya opened a box of carrot pudding.
It passed a lot of time after That terrible horrid Accident at The Snow Leopard Trek,after Which The well known, popular adventerous talented Yash Khanna,also known as India's Owl who kept his agility to photograph in a howling aphotic cloudish thicket and wearing a red Tshirt , photographing  Bull's race and other noble works which can give  u goosebumbs if u attempt to try such things..Yash was confined to wheelchair at his Sultanpur Apartment.He had nothing to do while during this powerful calefaction wave, all the neighbours opened their windows to chill up.While Yash sitting on his wheelchair can see people at his opposite Apartment.
He observes a swashbuckling dancer, he nicknames "Miss Peacock", a single,talented tunesmith,female chiseler,and Mr.Roy,a robust, freighted ornament salesman with a bedridden spouse.

.At evening Ajay left both of them as he got a  urgent meeting.Priya too left him as she need to return back to home as there are strict rules and regulations and it must be obeyed by each and every family member.Yash ordered one bowl of soup and a dish of chowmin from Canteen of the Apartment.They served Yash his meal within an hour after which he started his dinner..He switched on his Laptop and started to watch his faviurite saga-Harry Potter.His eyes were closed after few minutes..
"DON'T!!!!Please "..............................
It was night, When Yash overhears this shriek cry from a women and then sound of splintering glass.He thought he might be dreaming ,the night was followed with thunder and lightning.He tried to sleep again but provoked by thunder.He moved up to his balcony, when he observed Roy leaving his apartment.As Roy makes repeated late-night trips carrying his sample case with his car, So there was nothing to doubt about for Yash.
"In these promises broken
Deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie I can see through
This time I finally let you
Go, go, go."
His Mobile Alarm rang with this Tone repeatedly.....
Again Yash woke and this time he wished to break  his Mobile but he calmed down as that mobile was gifted to him by his late brother Anil Khanna.
Actually this song which voices out with alarm was his best  song and it belongs to Linkin Parkz,which was the band,for whom Yash flew to London leaving his all works and meetings with Photogarphing Companies....
Yash switched on his lamp and it was time for Mrs Roy to play the clavichord  but yet no tone aroused...Yash thought it might be some minutes later so he decided to take a bath...He switched on his Washroom's Geyser and closed the door.
"AHHHH....",laughed Yash, he was feeling refreshed as it was horrid conditions outside with the temperature going above 40 degree celcius.But what to stress is He still couldn't hear the melody or the acoustic hymn which was played by Misses Roy daily during this time.
He without waiting anymore , went to te balcony and what he saw was horrific,it was dreadful...He observed That Roy was clearing a knife with blood on it by piece of cloth .. Yash couldn't believe his eyes. And Yash caught that Misses Roy was missing,SO it simply means That Roy killed his wife..
But within few second he pinched himself to see if he was dreaming but yes he was awakened and its not a dream .But it also could be Mrs.Roy went outside, But again he thought Miss Roy was ill and she was afflicted by a strange desease.SO how she was missing.He called Priya and the next seccond ,Ajay.
Priya missed the boat, and was delayed,while Ajay was out of town to meet his Comapnay's vital meeting.Yash was heating up and without waiting more he called Ash,his lyceum buddy,and a  U.P law enforcement cop.
But Ash didnt answered it,two times,Three times and then Last time he called but no reply.
At this vital position,Priya arrived.The lights were off,the day was glossy while the room was looking murky and the lamps were also off  so all factors were making the room dim and misty.
She was feeling peculiar,erratic while on other hand curious and anxious ,about the sudden change that occurs in the apartment.She thought that the moment she entered she was being treated like a drifter.She was soaking with sweat.She moved with fear,and observed Yash with lorgnette and spying on the following Apartment.
She eased off and muttered "Yash,SHHHH,Yash..."
Yash turned around and this sight gave goosebumbs on Priya's Face.Yash's attitude was timid, and terror stricken.Priya had never seen Yash being so Frightened.
She said"Yash,Sorry for being late but What happened to u?Are U OK"
Yash nodded his head and murmured"Come Here"
His voice was weird and strange,Its like A thunder fell over him previous night.
Priya stepped towards him,and she reached the balcony,Where Yash hold her hand and muttered "Take this and tell me What was Roy doing there" and gave her a binocular.She took it and saw through the prismed glasses on to the apartment.She viewed Roy was sitting on a chair and holding a glowing cigar.She put the binocular down and said"Roy was sitting with a blazing Cheroot.So What to spy there"
