A girl with "Blue Eyes opened the door," it was none other than Riona... In shock both John and Sandeep looked at each other and said "RIONA", and she said "John???" with a faint smile she said “please come”, they both walked in... They heard someone from the room kept calling Riona, she asked John and Sandeep to sit and walked inside the room... The minute she walked away John said “my head is spinning if Riona is alive then who is the ghost?”. “Don't ask me anything I am just as confused as you are”.They saw her coming, with 2 glasses of juice, she offered them juice sat down “I am surprised to see you here”.
“We are surprised to see you here too.,” replied Sandeep stammering... “Why?” She asked smiling, John said “uhhh.. because someone said you are out of the country”. Without replying to John she questioned, “how did you remember Riona after so many years?” Both John and Sandeep were blank they didn't know what to answer. Sandeep came up with a reply “there is an association for old students in our college, we just came to check if you would be interested in joining” John said “yeah.. we are here to check on that...” She kept silent John asked, “do you remember.. you were also part of our NCC team during the trip you were too silent and very reserved all I remember is Your Blue Eyes and Long Hair”.
Sandeep interrupted “now your hair is short…?”, John stared at him, she replied “yes… I will tell you why is my hair short? Please come with me...” She took them upstairs and said look at this photo, Sandeep and John looked at the photo hanging on the wall and looked at each other, Sandeep whispered into John's ears “I am sure we are talking to a ghost come on, let's run away” John told him to hush and asked "Riona, what's wrong with you? Why have you put garland around your own photo?" She replied “because RIONA is dead”
Now John was confused and scared, he looked at Sandeep who was just staring at the photo, Sandeep whispered “see..I told you we were talking to a ghost!!!”. Gathering some courage John asked “then whom are we talking to?” "A Ghost" she said and stared dead into John's eyes, John felt someone crushing his hand.. he turned around with his heart pounding to see Sandeep holding on to him tight… “we are dead meat!” he said. They both stood petrified… holding on to each other thinking their life is going to end when she burst out laughing “I am sorry I was just kidding, I am not a Ghost nor I am your college junior Riona...” . “Huh? Then?” Sandeep looked puzzled , she replied, “my name is Fiona and I am Riona's twin sister”. “Wait what? twin sister?” Asked Sandeep again she replied “yes the only difference between me and Riona is our eyes, she had beautiful blue eyes and mine are black, she used to love long hair and I was a complete contrast. “but your eyes are blue?” said John... “These are lens; after losing Riona my mother fell into depression… at times she would cry uncontrollably…. When I stand in front of her with these lenses on she calms down a bit...”. “I can't believe this” replied John, “you will trust me now,” she said and removed her lens.
John looked at Riona's photo and asked "What had happened to Riona?". “We lost her in a car accident” replied Fiona as a drop of tear rolled down her cheeks... “When did this happen? asked Sandeep, “this August on 18th” she replied.. They both stood there without saying a word, after few minutes Sandeep said “she shouldn't have died this early, that's a really bad news we are sorry for your loss, let's go John” he pulled John who kept looking at Riona's photo... Finally they got a confirmation that Riona is dead. They both started walking out but something stopped John, he turned looking at Fiona he asked, “you made it really clear that you are not Riona… but how you know me??”. I don’t know if I can tell you this…replied Fiona “but Riona is gone… and it doesn’t really matter anymore.. so I will tell you how I know you… she said.
Fiona took them back upstairs to the room in which they saw Riona's photo...”This is my room now..but when Riona was alive we shared this room”...She opened Riona's wardrobe and then opened the secret draw “this wardrobe belongs to Riona”, she took out a card and gave it to John, John recognized it “this is my college Id card.. why is it with Riona?”. she then opened Riona's personal laptop and pointed at a folder and said “here you go…” she handed over the laptop in John's hand, what John saw was a folder full of his pictures, his college pictures, marriage and photo with kids and friends he looked at Sandeep in confusion and then asked Fiona “why has she collected my photos?” .”Because she was head over heels in love with you" she said. “What?? she never expressed it to me…” said John. “I will tell you why” replied Fiona.
Riona and I were not just twins… we were the best of friends, she never had habit of writing diary, I was her diary.. there were no secrets between us... Until class 12.. we studied together later she decided to do her B.Sc and I wanted to do my MBBS… we joined different colleges... The very 1st day when she entered the college, you were the 1st person she saw, you were standing in the corridor in 1st floor and she felt something in her that day that she’s never felt before.. again the same week when she saw you in the campus you came running behind her … she turned around to look at you… you were busy admiring her blue eyes but within a second you apologized and walked away, that is when she fell in love with.
She joined NCC just because you were in it, she used to tell me about your smile, your anger, your looks and what not... ”. “why didn’t she tell me anything then?”. “she was scared of rejection, she had no heart to hear NO from you and she knew you were in love with Roslyn... I know how beautiful my sister was from inside and out… I’ve always wondered what she saw in you, what made you so special to her.. so I asked her, I told her that I would like to meet you but then she said I can't for now.. but she will try and get your photo… when you were busy playing with your friends inside the campus you removed your ID card and kept it aside and it was Riona who flicked it from you. when I saw your photo I felt like you guys were made for each other... I remember she started talking to the photo as if you were in front of her. She loved you, so much that there were no words can express it and I am sorry to say that she died because of that same love.
