The Shooting

The Deer raised it's head and looked around as it sensed that something was around, but it didn't see anyone and resumed it's feeding.

He was hidden in the bushes just few meters away from the deer. The air was flowing against him so the deer couldn't smell him. 

The deer continued feeding and soon a baby joined it in the feeding. They continued feeding and soon the baby started playing too.

This was the moment he was waiting, he took the aim and pressed the button, silent shooting on and captured pictures after pictures of the wonderful scene.

Deer moved in the forest and soon they were gone away from the sight.

He didn't worry much he had already gotten with wanted shots and the shooting session was a success. He moved out of the bushes and moved ahead to look for other scenes were shooting.

The Beauty

I had seen her coming from a long way away, I mean how could I not, she is a looker after all and all I am, is a poor schmuck, going through the daily grind of life. 

Look at the luck out of all the offices in the building she had to come to the same office where I worked. Now it wasn't that I was interested in her or attracted towards her, hey I am already married it was just curiosity. 

Well her name is Rekha and after few days we became "Friends" or "Acquaintance" and all was fine till it wasn't. There was something off about Rekha, whenever anyone called her she wouldn't respond for sometime like she didn't know her own name or something like that, but what do I know.

I truly have wretched luck, well I had to travel to a different city due to some personal tasks and what do I see but Rekha's faces on posters around the station and city but on wanted posters only here her name was "Rukhsana" or something but I could never forget that face. I did the only thing I could, I called the number mentioned and informed the same to the police. Immediately a team of police officers went back to my city and arrested Rekha sorry Rukhsana right in front of the entire office, HR department was in hell as they were duped with the false documents. 

As it turns out Rukhsana was part of a terror outfit and had run away from the town and all the members of the gang had assumed false identity and joined different offices in the city and they were looking to cause some blasts on the Independence Day but thankfully due to my lead and Rukhsana's arrest, Police was able to unravel the mystery and catch everyone before the terrorists could do anything.

I was hailed as a hero and awarded by the authorities and although I did my duty as citizen why was I not happy? Ah the poor beauty.

You are not here

Dad,
             I wanted to write you this letter for a long time. If you remember it was a long time ago that you left us. I still remember your words like it was yesterday, 

"You make me miserable, I can't live in this house any longer." 
 

And you had walked away, I find it hard to believe that you forgot us but how can I answer the fact that you haven't called, visited or sent any mails to us since you left. You are not here but the problems are. 
 

Mom hasn't been herself since you left, I had to grow up overnight at the age of 13, Didn't I deserve to be a kid for a little longer, didn't I need my dad but you were not here. You left and never came back but with your absense we had to face all the difficulties alone. For a long time, he had little to no money. Then Mom started some work and that's how we survived. 


But how would you know all that, You are not here, why aren't you here? Where did you go? Why didn't you ever visit us? Don't you remember us any more? Did we do anything wrong? You are not here but you left us all the people who chased us for the money you owed them. 

You are not here but the cracks in the wall are there which cried for repairs but we barely survived and there's wasn't even enough money to eat both the times. How could we spare the money on un-necessary things like repair. I try to forget but can't forget the sight of you lying on the floor, cluching your chest, after you said those words. Doctor said you had a heart attack. You left us and never even visited us in dreams. You are not here, you left us alone in this cruel world. 

Your Son

Short

He was fast, he was furious
He would fly on his bike no matter the traffic
He was a daredevil, he was in a race
His bike got slipped and his life got cut short

Unexplained

He was in bed enjoying the weekend rain while his wife worked in kitchen and his son watched cartoons.

He had a stack of books on the bedside table, he had just received the packages from Amazon and he had eagerly ripped through them to gaze at the beautiful covers.

Also on the table were a letter opener and a scissor.

Suddenly he sensed something in the room but of course he didn't see anything. He thought that someone whispered something in his ear. What was said he didn't understand but what happened next couldn't be explained.

He picked up the scissors and started cutting his hair, it was like his hands were moving independently. He cut whatever hair he could find on his body.

Then for the reasons which are still unexplained.

He turned the scissors on him he used the sharp blades to cut both his wrists.

He also stabbed himself multiple times, and then to finish the task he slashed his throat.

Most strange and unexplained was the fact that he still had a smile on his face as his son cried and his wife called hospital upon seeing him lying in the pool of blood on the bed.

A creepy unexplained smile.
