introduction

Amar is the name of a boy who is going to be 14 next week  he had a plan of doing many fun and nasty activities on his friends who pranked him today and during this summer vacations  those were the only four friends of him. Amar was a the son of a army men and like all he used to stay in apartments made for army people and for your knowledge the locality was having a playground on which he was playing with his friends they were playing hide and seek and it was Amar’s chance to search, and his friends pranked him by just going to their respective houses by not telling him. Amar searched everywhere in the ground but unable to find them he asked one of the security guard of the playground about them and where they went after knowing the truth he was not angry but sad saying “why only him every time they pranked, why not Rahul or Abhishek “ . He was just way back home thinking about the revenge and how he will take it , just passing by the street he looked at the apartment no. 7/3. Mr Manoj Sharma used to live there and nobody used to visit him from the locality gossiping that he was not well mentally , seeing the window of that apartment a boy of his age was calling him inside it by doing hand signals , the boy was not stranger for him everyday  that boy tried to call him and every time he refused to come .

 

 

MEETING HIM

The second day in the morning he was running towards the playground and  all of a sudden that boy came in front of him and he dashed with him and both fell on the street he was injured in his knee but to his surprise the other one did not have a single scratch on his body, everyone around him was laughing looking at him they were children of his age and they all said together “Amar will always be a fool and no one can stop him from being so”. The name of the boy was Ritesh when he asked him, he was surprised by looking at him because he used to be inside his house all day and never came out , the only time he used see him was at evening in his window. Both of them became good friends and Amar was asking the boy about his past.

 

RITESH’S STORY

He started saying “ I came here ten years ago with my father who served 506 battalion and ,I am from Karnataka and my full name is Ritesh Madana. Both of my parents served in the army. My father was at the post of Lt colonel and my mom was captain, both them were very strict with respect to me and hardly sent me to play outside. I had the chance to play when both of them were not at home, they hired a babysitter for me and she used to take care of me. For your knowledge she was not a cool and pretty one, she used treat me like an object and used to tell to do all the house chores instead of herself. Many a times she beat me with the a bamboo stick which she used to keep with her, I tried to tell my parents about the ill treatment she was giving me , I used to cry and tell them but not a single day they belived me. And one day I decided to take a revenge on her , so I set up trap for by pouring all the oil on the floor and my plan worked ,she came from the front door and entered the kitchen where I had poured the oil and she just slipped and the next second her head hit the edge of the washing basin and she was dead, her blood was all over the floor and it was the worst day of my life . I was not able think about anything at that moment,

I was just crying thinking my parents would kill me too for that. I remember the next thing which I did was escaping from the house before  police and my parents comes. There used to be a small bunker at backside of our house, I just ran toward it went inside it and locked the bunker with the bamboo stick of her, I stayed there all night, I was able heat the police sirens the dog . I pretty much knew they are searching for me to arrest. But I stayed there as much as I could.

 

AMAR’S QUESTIONS TO HIM

Amar said “How is this possible I think you too want me to get pranked”. believe it or not but this was my past, “then what about your parents where are they now” said his companion. He remained quite for a moment and then he just stood up started walking towards his apartment looking him Amar tried to follow him and he was about to enter to his apartment but he just took a right turn from the entrance and was going to the backyard. And the sad part was he did not farewell him ,he just kept on going.

 

 

CONCLUSION

Coming back home , Amar was sad that his friend didn’t said goodbye to him, his mom noticed him in that condition , she came and sat with him and asked the reason. He started saying “mom do you know anything about apartment no. 7/3” her mom saying” why what happened , why do you want  know it anyway”  amar said “just tell me “ his mom started saying” I got this information from my neighbour they are here from 6 years and they told me that the guy in the apartment is very disturbed and not well , they say that everyday at sharp 11 o’ clock in the morning a lady screams loudly saying she will kill Ritesh, enough my boy now go to bed your birthday is coming, aren’t you happy”. Saying this he went to his bed , four days later on his birthday everyone came including his naughty friends but he didn’t do all that he though for doing doing on them. Ritesh was very happy everyone wished him blessed him ,ate all his favourite dishes but all of a sudden Ritesh was again present there waving his hand outside his house, Ritesh took some cake for him and started going outside his house to offer him that. His mother looking him going out and talking to no one , he was all alone their . After Amar came back she asked the reason hearing that she was aghasted by hearing the reason from his son. The boy ritesh was actually dead he remained in the bunker for one month without food and water and his body degraded there itself, that’s his parents were not able to find him and left that place after two months searching from him, Ritesh still meet him and Amar’s mother didn’t tell him about that boy.
