After a long day, my parents have gone to Piku's wedding and since Shaam( My bro ) had semester exams scheduled, I thought to accompany him.
It was 2 AM in the morning and I was still starring at my mobile, scrolling Instagram posts. I had a haunted feeling since I heard a big bang noise suddenly. Shaam was sleeping with his book over his face. He didn't respond to me even after I wake him up. I brought all my courage together and decided to go upstairs.
When I entered the terrace, it was bright orange and I was shocked as I saw an orange hot air balloon parked over our terrace. I was totally surprised to see that and more than that I was excited.
I slowly went towards the hot air balloon and it was labeled as K3-Flyer. This was the first time I have ever seen such big balloons because Mumbai people will not get a chance often to see such a huge hot air balloon. When I was stuck in various thoughts about the one I saw, someone tapped my shoulder.
Before I turned, he was in front of me. He looked like a bodybuilder and wore a black backpack. He exactly looked like a traveler. I was stunned as I saw a stranger in my terrace.
He told me he is a traveler and he has invented this hot air balloon. He said he got down as he wanted some rest and since the balloon lost its control, he ended up landing in our terrace. I was still standing and he went back to the balloon and started it again.
I was not able to speak a word because everything happening around me was a dream. He waved me bye and told nice "to meet you young lady", and I was still standing there watching him flying on the air.
I didn't sleep the rest of the night, thinking about the K-Flyer. When I woke up in the morning, Shaam left for his college. I started to scroll my Facebook and I was totally in shock when I saw the post.
" A Traveller who was in a tour to Himalayas in his own constructed hot air balloon, passed away as his balloon collapsed around 11 PM. He was not able to survive as his balloon lost the control and he ended up falling down."
The post had two pictures, one was the Orange hot air balloon with Label K3-FLYER, and the other was his corpse.
So he passed away by 11 pm and how come I met him at 2 AM the next day? When I was lost in my thoughts, he stood in front of me with a scary laugh.
