The voice on the other end of the phone sounded familiar but she couldn’t place a name to it. From the last few days a call from the same person was threatning her. She registered a complaint against the caller, but was of no use as he used to call her from different public booth everyday . The voice was of someone whom she knew, but who is he and why he wanted to kill her was a mystery. He never disclosed a reason behind hatred towards her.
It was a rainy night and she was listening to the soothing music when suddenly lights went off. In the dark she was searching for candle when she heard footsteps in her room. She flashed her mobile light towards the direction. In the mobile flashlights and lightening from outside she saw his face. The person that was giving her sleepless nights was now in front of her. The voice who was calling and threatning her all these days was now revealed. Shocked, scared she managed to say, “You… why did you… ” Before she could complete her sentence, he ran towards her and stabbed till she was dead.
The answer will remain a mystery forever. The face, reason, secret gone with her last breathe.
