Geet woke up in the morning with the sound of birds. All the previous things seemed like a dream to her. She smiled half-asleep, thinking that all that could not be true. She wanted to take a stretch, but reality opened her eyes. The pain of her body reminded everything again. Geet wanted to press her feet but she knew this was not possible. Still, she tried. And there was no limit of her surprise when she found that her body was no longer tied with rope.
She was free. She looked around. The room was the same. But one window was half open, out of which some light was coming. Geet ran away and went to the window. It was a dense forest outside. Her room was quite high. “Anyone there?” She made a loud sound. But no one heard her voice. Geet then noticed the door. She tried to open it loudly. But it was locked from outside. “Anyone out there? Open the door please” But there was no sound coming from anywhere. Geet was now defeated. She started crying sitting on the ground.
After some half an hour, when her tears were over, Geet felt lighter. “No Geet, you can’t give up like this.” She wiped her tears. “I will not give up. I have to have courage. Uncle must be looking for me. If anything happens to me, he will be alone again. I have to do something myself” She gave courage to herself.
Geet started looking for something around. She found the food box. Quickly she ate all the sandwiches. This gave her some strength to think further. She started inspecting the room. Geet tried to open the cupboard but it was closed. She looked around and found a bedsheet. She immediately picked it up and went to the window. She looked down. Nobody was far away. She tied one end of the bedsheet to the window handle. And threw the rest down. She thought that she would come down with the help of the bedsheet. But it was small. Then she remembered the “rope”.
Now Geet thought who opened her rope?” Her body began to tremble. “That man tomorrow?” She got scared. She checked her clothes. Everything was OK. But still, an unknown fear permeated her mind.
“No Geet now is not the time to think about all this” she overcame herself. ” I need to find that rope” Thinking this, she started searching the whole room. Then his eyes shift to the table. An envelope was placed there. Geet picked her up. It was a letter.
I saw the mark on your hand at night. So you have been freed from the rope. There is medicine in the drawer of this table, put it on your marks. The key of the cupboard is kept in the drawer itself. Essential things are kept there for you in the cupboard. Check it yourself. I am going out for 2 hours. Don’t even think of running away when I’m not there. There is dense forest all around. Wild animals and wild humans will be found everywhere. Even if you survived them all, you will not be able to escape from my eyes.
“How did he know my name?” How did he know my name? The question came to her mind, but the second moment she changed her mind. “It’s not the time to think about all this. He is not here. I should take advantage of this. She opened the drawer. It had ointments and a key too. Geet lifted the key. At this time, she did not even care about her wound. She opened the cupboard. It had water bottles and food. Geet searched more. And there she found what she wanted. A sheet was placed on the shelf below. “There you made a mistake, Mr Maan.”
Geeta quickly tied the second sheet to the bedsheet. Now she could get down. She smiled at her victory. Geeta got down quickly. Now she was free.
