Geet was his prey. He looked back to lady and smirked. Lady nodded. She commanded all to leave expect Geet. “Geet come with me ” she ordered. Geet passed man, scrupling, not to touch him, and walk fast to warden, thinking she would take her away from him. Both left from there. After sometime Geet found herself in front of a locked door, along with lady. She opened lock and ordered Geet to follow her, descending stairs. Both were walking down through a dim enlightened stairway and reached to narrow corridor. Geet clutched lady hand scaring. She dint see this place before. She was frightened, without knowing it was nothing in front of coming misfortune. She was that nave, unknown to all this happening. She dint not know much about outer world, what risk a young girl carry with her, if she is alone. She came here, in this Orphanage few months back. Before she used to live on another place.
They passed corridor and reached a room which was closed. “Why have we come here ma’am?” Geet asked meekly with trembling voice. But she did not get any response. Lady opened door and commanded Geet to go inside. Geet entered and turned to see, door was locked from outside. She run to door and pounded, screaming but no use. She turned back and gave a look to room. It was scary. Small, dirty, cold and creepy. She took small steps and sat on bed. Tears were falling from her eyes like dark night rain. It did not pass five minutes when she heard door opened. She stood thinking warden had come. She runs to door when she saw. The same man appeared…
Maan reached to a place. A old building “ Anaath Aashram ” board was hanging from roof. He was cold, dead and Ruth. Walked inside without need of any permission. His footsteps were straight and his posture was rocked. He had unsaid command in his silence, and he straightaway entered inside office. He found it vacant. He went out and dialled a number. It connected to a phone which was lying on floor, because the owner’s attention was somewhere else. He was ready to hunt a small bird, who was stood front of him, terrified and frightened, and crying.
He stepped toward Geet. She stepped back. He was experienced and big, she was innocent and fragile. He had power, she was weak. He was laughing like beast, she was crying like prisoned fairy. She hated his gaze, his presence. Her soul was wanting to leave her body, To be remain untouched by That Beast but she dint know, it was impossible, without dying, and she had no way to die. She had nothing. She was helpless, she was abandoned.
Maan called again same number. This time owner irritated. He picked his phone from floor and was going to bark when stopped, looking number, flashing in his cell. Man paused his heading steps toward Geet and answered “Hello …Maan beta ”
“Hello uncle, where are you ” Maan asked coldly
“um I ..I am.. ”
“Uncle you supposed to be in office right now, and here your secretary said you are here, in this Orphanage. What are you doing here, in this hour of night.” Maan almost shouted “now come fast. We need to leave fast”
“Maan son at least listen me dear. ok you wait there m just coming ” saying man who was a famous businessman of Delhi Mr. Narendra kapoor, left his hunting in mid and left from room saying “ O listen girl, I’ll come back in a moment. You don’t be scare okay!! ” and left cursing Maan..
Narendra went to meet Maan. Maan father and Narendra was childhood friend and business partners. Maan was not very fond of this man but still could not disrespect him. He and Maan was needed to go in a important meeting and when Maan called to Narendra office, he was informed Narendra had gone to Orphanage to donate. So Maan came here to take him with him.
“Maan beta.. why you came here.. I was just coming to you ” Narendra spoke
“hmm.. I know.. now please uncle, will you be in car so we could leave for meeting. We are already getting late” Maan said
“O ya, why not Maan, but I have my own car. You leave I follow you. I have to talk to warden”
“Hmm” Maan said and left from there, leaving a smirking Narendra behind..
Geet was still stood there numb after Narendra leaving. She could not believe she was untouched and alive. She was blank with all what happened. How she came here and how that man came here.. she could understand what that man was to do with her.. yes she was afraid and sacred but with presence of a unknown and dirty looking man.. not due to think what could have been happened with her.. or can happen ahead. She had no sense that she could run from there .. in her blank state she could not see that room door was open. She was still in shock with all that when she heard some footstep again. She started sweating in fear. She coursed herself millions time, for not running. Her cry went louder when she saw her friends there.. she could not believed. She run and hugged them still crying like a child. Her friends patted her head and tried to give her courage , to run. They somehow made Geet understand that they have very less time.. she have to run and that too fast, without wasting any second. Geet nodded and with help of them she came up. They were hiding from all eyes and managed to come out of gate. All her friend waved their hand to say last good bye.. Geet cried. She shivered from inside , leaving again her only family. She had no time to hug them or talk them or to say a word. They went inside and Geet was again alone, without family and shelter. She was broken..
