Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “key.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Somethings are better keep locked forever.

“Why it is locked?”
“It’s been locked since more than 500years and since then it is here in the basement. Locked by my great grandpa.”
“Is it that old grand dad and that key belongs to the same lock?”
“Yes. So that whatever inside remains locked forever.”
“Uhhh??”
“There is devil locked inside the box.”
“Grand dad… stop fooling me with such stories… Now I am grown up.”
“Its true. And you too don’t ever try to open it and I don’t want you to venture here again. Got it ?? Now lets go from here. (Grandpa stopped walking n turned around to face him)Was the basement door open??”
“Yes. It was open and some noises were coming from inside. So I just went to check in as door was unlocked, but no one was inside. I saw this box and the way it was locked with the key fascinated me.”
Grand dad got confused as he was the only person who had the key to the basement which was with him and he rarely opens the door.
“Forget it now and remember I don’t want you to come down here again. I know your curious mind and you don’t believe old stories, still I want you to stay away from the basement and that box.”
“Yes I will.”
Late at night he woke up with the sound of loud thud. He walked out of his room towards the stairs, there was no one, no sound too. Thinking he might have dreamt in deep sleep he started walking back towards his room and then again he heard loud knocks and thuds coming continuously from downstairs. He hurriedly came down. He walked towards the sound and saw basement door was open. He stood near the half opened door and saw locked box on the table.
He walked towards the box and was about to touch, it started shaking as if someone was knocking from inside.
He ran out of the room and closed the basement door. His grandfather was standing outside.
“I told you not to go inside. They have chosen you. You are the one who heard their knocks as till now no one had ever heard any sound, not even me and you touched the box. (Grandfather paused a minute) You should leave soon, Son. Tomorrow early morning you are going back to your home.”
“Chosen for what?”
“No more questions. Lets go from here.”
“Chosen for what, Grandpa?”
“They have chosen your body for their devil’s spirit which is locked inside that box that desperately wants to come out sensing you heard them and once out it will possess your body.”
He was shaken up by fear.
“Son, I want you to go back and to never return here.. EVER.”
He just nodded.
Again he heard loud thud. He looked at grandpa who heard nothing but understood when his grandson was staring at the door.
He held his hand and took him with him. “Come with me. Tonight you have to take care. Ignore the sound and everything. Just be inside the room. I will be with you. Once sun rises you leave this place to never come back. “

He was the sole witness. He had seen UFO last night which according  to him had landed on the particular area that created a big crater on the ground.
” There was a strange sound coming from above. I looked up and saw bright light that was getting brighter and bigger. I hid behind a large tree. When it reached closer there was a blinding colorful lights blinking. It was huge, round in shape like a unique airplane. Slowly it reached close to the open space right here. It made a deafening sound when it landed. There was numerous small windows and inside like a light panels, buttons which was operating by strange looking peoples.”
“Do they got down.”
“Slowly the door opened. They were weird looking humans. Humans or not I don’t know.  They were not like us. One of them saw me and I  got so scared that I ran from there. I don’t know they got down or not.”
“Now it’s a mystery that they got down or not. ” Reporters was covering his story.
Some believed his story some said he cooked up, but no one had the answer about the mysterious crater that appeared last night.

Truth or cooked up, once a sleepy village now became hotspot for visitors in one night as many tourists flocked to see where UFO touched the ground. Villagers took these as an opportunity for earning and to start new business.

She was sitting in the dark, lost in her thought. He kept his bag on a side couch and holding a bouquet of her favorite flowers slowly moved towards her n wrapped his hands around her from back with a kiss whispering, “Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart.”
The Room was lit with candles. In front of her, Cake was kept on the table with two glasses n bottle of Red wine.
She looked at flowers n took from his hand. There was a beautiful box attached to the bouquet in which a beautiful diamond ring was sparkling.
She then turned to look at him, “Why You Did This?”
“Its our special day and that is the same diamond ring which you set your eyes on last week at the shop, Remember?”
“Not this.”
“Then?”
“Since when its going on in your mind?”
“What? What are you talking about?”
She rapped the table so hard that with the impact cake n bottle of wine fell on the floor. She stood up throwing the bouquet at a corner.
He was looking at her, shocked by her behavior.
“You thought I will not find out that you are planning to divorce and leave me forever?”
“Wait..” He hurriedly went towards the shelf, “Are you skipping your medicines agai…” before he could complete his sentence she charged towards him with a knife n stabbed in his neck from side, he collapsed then turned him around and stabbed him in chest that killed him instantly.
He knew it was dangerous to keep her at home as doctor had warned him to get her admitted in hospital as soon as possible for treatment of bipolar disorder, which had aggravated in recent times due to her skipping of daily medication. But he loved her too much and wanted to celebrate their anniversary at home rather than at hospital. So he decided to admit her after their special day.

Before that she took his life on the same day when they became one… On their 2nd Marriage Anniversary.

2 A.M

Holding a glass of wine n enjoying cool breeze with soft music at the background, she was Staring at the most brightest twinkling star from her balcony for a long time with a smile on her face. 

She loved spending hours admiring dark sky, moon n stars since she was a little girl.. But today she was staring for a long time.

“Beautiful… See you soon.” She wispered softly with a smile when brightest star hid behind dark clouds. “Now its time to sleep n leave all the worries behind.”

She took last sip n went inside towards her bed n slept to never get up again.

The 15th. #love

She was waiting for him since last two hours. Now she began to worry as he had never been so late. She was continuously trying to reach him but every time his cell went unanswered.

She went to his place, door was locked. She knocked on neighbour’s door. They were expecting her. She asked impatiently about him. They invited her inside and gave a glass of water. They told her he had left message for her. He had gone to her place and going to wait for her. She sighed, relieved and hugged old lady and left.

“I feel so sad for her.” Neighbour said wiping her tears.

“Yes me too.” her husband said.

On every month’s 15th She knocks on their door from last 6months.

They were madly in love. Six months ago they decided to get married. On 15th he decided to introduce his highschool sweetheart to his parents. When he was on the way to meet her, his car met with an accident and tragically lost his life on spot. Unaware of the tragedy, she was waiting for him in excitement.

When hours passed she began to worry. Clueless, Restless she decided to go and check on him at his place. His house was locked. She then went to his neighbour’s house and knocked. They asked her to come inside then gave water and at that time they heard police siren and ambulance. She came out running and saw him. It was his body. Shocked, She collapsed. She never accepted he was gone forever.

For her time stopped. Since then On every 15th she gets ready and waits for him on the decided place and time. At particular time just like that fateful day she calls on his number then goes to his place restless and knocks on his neighbor’s door to enquire about him. Everytime they tell her he is waiting for her at her place so that she reaches to her peoples and home safely.

“Am I Still ALIVE?? Thank God for saving My Life. Bless the One who made this shelter house in the middle of the Jungle. This place must have saved many lives of the lost explorers like me, who otherwise might lost their life by attacks from wild animals. What a Beautiful way of Source Of Light… Perfect Usage Of Nature.”

The shelter has every basic things. He got up slowly from the bed. His eyes caught something on the Table.

A Letter…

Whoever read this….

My Son visited this dense jungle to explore, but never returned home. During search operation we found his belongings at these spot but no trace of him. Few days later we found his rotten body. He was attacked by wild animal.

This jungle is not a safe place and many lost their life. There are many incidents of attacks on explorers by wild animals. To venture in deep is prohibited, but when explorers lost track they unknowingly enter in dense area. This is the spot where many had lost their lives.

The way to come out once you enter the deep into the jungle is very difficult and not safe. In the memory of my Son who lost his life and where I found his belongings, I decided to make shelter house to save others lives in the future. Every fortnight I provide basic things for the shelter house in the hands of authorities like food and water for survival. There is a map in the drawer that will guide to come out safely. Take a photo of the map else can take one of the copies from the storage below.

Keep the map and letter at their respective place before leaving, so that it will guide other needy in future like you.

There is a diary out there… I appreciate if you share experiences or the mistake that happened or the precautions you think that could have help to avoid these circumstances… It will help others in future.

It will make me happy knowing that these shelter house saved atleast one life. It will ease my pain of loss.

 
He took the diary that was kept on table, opens it and saw there were many experiences written in which they thanked the great soul for saving their life by providing shelter with that some food and water arrangements.

He took the pen and wrote his experiences, mistakes that happened and thanked him for the map, food and shelter home. While leaving he kept water that he had with him and few packets of extra food in the storage, as a little help for someone like him, as the distance to get out was not that far and that now he had map with him. He latched the door and resumed his journey thanking the man and praying for the one who lost their life.

Every morning when she hears the sound of the whistle, she runs to catch a glimpse of passing train from the tunnel. Her master knew she loves to watch trains, so one morning he took her for a train ride. They alighted at the beautiful snow covered city. That was the best day of her life. He took her at the place from where she can view the train passing through the tunnel. He bought her favourite food and spent a beautiful day playing and enjoying with her.

Few hours later, he asked her to wait until he returns, but never came back. A faithful dog kept waiting for him in chilly winter. Years passed but he never came back to take her home… May be by now she knew he abandoned her.

He was about to reach the gate but something freezed him. She was standing between him and the gate. Her piercing gaze and fierce look on the face with long black hairs swaying in the air was haunting. She came towards him staring in his eyes. He was staring in to her dark red eyes and few minutes later the whole place filled with his piercing scream, next second everything went silent.
She came out running and kept staring at his lifeless body in shock. Witch disappeared in the backside woods and her messenger followed her from above the roof of their house. His soul was now in her captivity.

Today was her 18th birthday. She decided to celebrate with her high school friends at pub. Her step mom suggested to invite her friends at home and everyone can have a joint celebration with pool theme party. She hugged her mom, smiled and thought it will be convinient, agreed and left home for school. Her mom smiled and thought.. It’s a perfect time to implement the plan and change everything forever.

The place was perfectly decorated the way she would love and her friends loved the theme. Everyone was enjoying, dancing and then one scream changed the scene. She and her dad came running inside and saw her step mom was lying in a pool of blood with slashed neck. She ran towards her mom’s lifeless body and cried while her dad was staring in shock.

Police came at the spot and started interrogation. She was silent, still and shocked with the incident. Her friends took her to her room. She asked everyone to leave, shut the door and cried aloud sitting on the floor.

Few minutes later, she got up and stood in front of the mirror, wiped her tears, took off her big locket with a razor edges and removed a small hidden knife from one of the edges and smiled wickedly.

She jumped on her bed happily as everything went as per planned. She felt something under the pillow. There was a small giftbox perfectly tied with a beautiful ribbon and small note on it read, ‘Happy Birthday Princess, from your mom.’ She opened the box. Inside was a car key with another note.. Your favourite car waiting for you in the garrage.. I hope now we will not argue and be more like friends as you are Eighteen now.’

Her smile replaced by tears.

I Wish To Take Time Back.

home-alone-loneliness-seascape-paintings-screen-319027.jpg

He was known as intelligent, soft spoken, well behaved introvert person in his group. Everyone believed he will be the most successfull among them. Life was beautiful with good job, rich family and lovely girlfriend. Everything was perfect till that unfateful night came in his life.

From last few days, he and his girlfriend was going through rough phase in their relationship. She wanted to settle down since they were together from the last five years and he was now doing great in his professional life. But he wanted some more time before any committment. With no solution to this problem, they decided to give each other some space and see where future takes them.

During this period, she met a handsome guy and started dating him. She even started avoiding his calls and used to rarely revert his messages. He came to know about her closeness with another man. He called her and went to meet her to confront her face to face. When he reached her home at night after job hours, she calmly told him that everything between them is over from her side and she had already moved on.

The casual attitude towards their relationship made him furious and he slapped her so hard that she hit her head on the wall and fell down on the ground unconscious. When he saw she was not moving and blood oozing out from her head, he tried to wake her up, but she was already dead.

He sat down staring at her lifeless body for sometime. Few minutes later he got up and bought a mop and large suitcase from inside. He stuffed her body in the suitcase and buffed the floor till blood stains disappeared. He kept the suitcase in the garage and drove off home.

Two days later the news of her murder spread everywhere. Her friends rushed to her place including him. Her new boyfriend was already present there with her family. Police started their interrogation. He was standing silent at one corner with his friends. Her new love told police that three days earlier, she had told him her ex boyfriend got furious knowing about their relationship and was coming to meet her at home. That was the last conversation happened between them. After that whenever he called her cell phone went unanswered. Today he came to check on her and this came to light.

He freezed on the spot. He thought no one knew about their meeting but she had shared everything with her new boyfriend. Friends were shocked when they heard the statement. Police came towards him and asked him about their meeting. He broke down and confessed killing her accidently. He told them he was scared to break this news to anyone or to call police. His intension was not to kill her and that he loved her too much to lose for someone else. He was angry but never hated her to murder her. He was arrested and with that his bright future pushed in to the darkness forever.
