"No Priya don't leave me, I cannot imagine life without you"...It was extremely dark and she tried to free her hand from my hold. Actually it was not my fault. What bad is it there in taking my mom's side. Yes, I had just said to her that my mom was a better cook than her. Finally, she had left and I was alone again trying to compose myself.
Everything will get better I thought but I was wrong . I could hear Priya screaming at a distance. She was held by the hand by a masked man. He was tall and muscular. I ran towards the duo to free Priya from the clutches of the 'picaresque character 'who was appearing in my life. I went to the man and tried to hit him. My hands had gone numb, my legs too were motionless. I felt helpless. I tried to cry for help but no sound came out. The sound got suppressed at my throat. I could not understand what to do.
"Henry, wake up, it's already 8 am, don't you want to go to the office? " Priya was trying to wake me up from the deep sleep. I was happy to see her safe. Cursed be the unpleasant dream and its unknown cause. "I love you, Priya and never leave me please!", I told her. Priya was surprised but I told her nothing and got ready to face the day.
