As he was drowning in deep ocean of his thoughts his hear started to beat irregularly. He stopped and thought that it’s because of his stress over a name and brushed it off. He continued his way to home where something was waiting for him. A mishap was betided.
He saw a horde of women at his house and his face went blank cause of unawareness of situation as he moved further the words knocked on the doors of his eardrums horrible enough to rip his soul a part. “I think her daughter is about to die in a moment”.
One of them said to other. Arif face went pale and with adrenaline he rushed toward his room as his wife screamed from misery. Arif found her daughter dead in his mother arms. Arif felt blank and completely out of his mind that moment he couldn’t figured out what happened.
