John got into Ziya's room and there he saw a lady in a pink salwar, with open hair and her back towards him. The lady had Ziya in her hand, John stood there confused wondering who she was and how she got into his house, but before John could react she gently kissed Ziya on her cheeks, put her on the bed and disappeared. John was shocked he looked around, he searched all over his house but he found no one, someone rang the doorbell, John opened his eyes only to know it was a dream. What do I make of this dream? John sat down lost in his thoughts and the doorbell rang again, it was Jency and Liya who were ringing the bell...
John thought “I think Ziya will be alright, with this dream I feel the soul has conveyed that it's not gonna trouble Ziya anymore...” There was a heavy breeze the window opened by itself and the cool breeze touched John's body and the air which entered his ears sounded like a "YES".... John smiled, the door bell rang again he ran to open the door Liya jumped on him and said: “Daddy I missed u a lot today, why did you not join us?” John replied, “I had some important work, my baby, now you tell me where all did you go?” Excited, Liya started explaining to John where she had been, what she had and what she got for Ziya... Meanwhile, Jency walked into their daughter's room to check on Ziya, she saw Ziya peacefully sleeping. She came back to the living room and John knew Jency was upset, he looked at Liya and said “Go change your dress, freshen up and come and then we can talk about rest okay?…”, Liya ran to her room and the minute Liya left Jency asked “John, tell me how Ziya was today? did you do something? Is she okay now?. John said “Jency relax, Ziya is all fine, you will not see her talking alone anymore...”. “really? Or are you just saying this to convince me, she questioned?”. “Jency... trust me, observe her behaviour, you’ll see the diffence,” said John. Jency, who was not convinced still nodded her head and walked into her room.
Liya came back and sat with John, she asked John for permission to play video games, “why not” said John and he too started playing with her... In few minutes Ziya woke up and walked to the living room rubbing her eyes, she went directly and sat on John's lap, John smiled and hugged her “oh my Ziya baby woke up, did you sleep well Ziya?” Asked John but he did not get any response he looked at Ziya she was closing her eyes and leaning on his shoulders... “Are you still feeling sleepy baby?” asked John, Ziya just nodded her head meanwhile Liya ran from there and came back with a bag and started shouting “Ziya look what all I have got for you!!!!”... Ziya opened her eyes saw new dresses and plenty of toys, her eyes gleamed with happiness she jumped down from her father's lap and ran towards her sister. She happily went through all her toys, John watched her with a smile and he noticed Jency too watching her, “did you say thanks to Liya and your Mummy?” asked John, playing with her new Barbie doll Ziya said thank you to her sister and she ran to Jency hugged her, kissed on her cheeks and said “thank you mummy”.
Liya and Ziya got busy playing with each other and with their new toys... John went to Jency and asked, “can you see changes in Ziya?” Jency was relieved, a drop of tear rolled down her cheeks as she smiled. “it's good to see her like this again, I was really scared at the way she behaved these past few days. What was wrong? Why was she behaving that way?” questioned Jency... “Did I not tell you Jency it's just her imagination, she was playing with some imaginary friend, I made her understand there is no such thing and she understood”. “I feel really happy and relaxed John, “said Jency. John smiled and said, “you must be tired take rest I will make a call and come”.
John went to the terrace dialed Sandeep and enquired about Charles' mother... “Nothing serious dude, she is fine, I will give the phone to Charles,” said Sandeep and passed on the phone to him... “Thanks, dude, my mom is doing fine now, just that her BP shot up and it's back to normal now... How is Ziya? Did you tie the thread in her hand?” enquired Charles. “oh yeah..uhh.. I did I did and Ziya is fine” said John...”Great, take care, John. call us if you need any help” said Charles and disconnected the call.
John sat down on the terrace and thought to himself I lied to Charles and Sandeep today but if I tell them the truth they will force me to tie the thread in my hand which I don't want to... “Hey, good soul, who are you? I wanted to get rid of you but something is stopping me, it's not because of all those good things you have done to me, I am definitely not being selfish here but I feel some connection between us, I feel you are someone I know, but why do you wanna hide your identity from me? At least I would like to know if I was a good person to you or a real bad person like how I was to Roslyn”, there was complete silence. John just got up and walked into the house; the minute John got into the house the ghost started weeping loud on the terrace, Mr.Rahul (John's neighbor) who is a drunkard heard the weeping looked at John's terrace and fell unconscious.
