Breaking News: When the Pen has become a sword by itself! : Murder attempt on the famous thriller writer… Scene - I The famous writer throws down the newspaper on the bed and shouts at the top of his voice, "I will not spare him .. I will not… I don't know what the police are doing but I sware, if I can find him I will not let him go…!" His rage drops from his voice. "Please calm down dear, the doctor has asked you not to get excited. It's injurious for your health." The meek wife tries to stop him in her low voice. But it angers him more. He shouts again, "Just shut up you idiot. It's all your fault." "My fault!" "Whose else! You should have checked the pen before keeping it on my desk." "But dear how could I know that it was poisonous. Your fans always keep sending you gifts, and I thought it was also like the others…" "You thought! Oh my god, you thought… do you even have a brain to think! Stupid woman." "Dear, trust me…" "Shut up. Don't fry my head. I beg you." The wife lowers her head. She knows that it's not the time for her to speak. Two nurses are standing outside the room and they can hear each and every word dropped from the mouth of the writer and his wife. One nurse says to the other, "Sheetal, he might be a famous writer but not a good person at all. Have you seen how he treats his wife?" "What else could he do to this stupid woman? She does not deserve him at all. She neither has good looks like her husband nor the intellect like him." "Oh really! Then why did your favorite writer marry her?" "Don't you know? A few years back, I read an article on him. There it was mentioned that this lady was an orphan and was raised by her maternal uncle & aunt. After she completed her schooling her uncle wanted to get rid of her, so he requested the author's father to accept her as his daughter-in-law. The father was a nobleman, so he got our writer married to this lady. Although that time he was just a clerk of a government office and hadn't started his writing career then, still I think he could get someone better." "But still I don't think he should behave like this…" Scene-II "Madam you're under arrest." Two police officers with a lady constable enter into the writer's cabin in the hospital. The lady constable comes forward and puts the handcuffs on the hands of the wife. The lady in her natural way tries to protest in a low voice but no-one does listen to her. "What are you doing, officer? Have you gone mad?" The writer asks in a high voice. "No, sir. We're absolutely fine. We are just doing our duty." Answers one of the officers.
"I don't think so. You couldn't find the real culprit, so now you're arresting my wife?" The writer says in a sarcastic voice. But the officer doesn't lose his cool, and says, "We have got enough evidence against your wife, sir. The shopkeeper has confirmed that it was none but your better-half who bought the pen. And in fact, we have also collected the bottle of poison from your kitchen." "What! No, it's impossible… Why would she do that? Officer, she has no one in this world except me. Priya…" The Police arrest the wife and take her with them. Scene-III "Sagar, don't you feel something weird about this case?" Asks the senior officer. The junior nods his head and says, "What are you talking about sir?" "Don't you ever feel that… that we got the evidence so easily! Is not it? It seems that as if we didn't find anything, all the evidence was presented before us." "Why are you thinking in this way, sir? It was just an easy case. Actually sir, once I heard that this lady, I mean the wife of the author, is absolutely dull. So I think that's why she couldn't make a perfect plan." "Now you are talking like a dull person, Sagar." "Why sir?" "Do you ever hear of a dull person planning to murder anyone, especially her own husband? Sagar, I think this is not the end. This is just the beginning of a new mystery." The wife of the author is observing the officers for too long. Although she cannot hear them from the lock-up, she can guess that they're talking about her. She smiles secretly. Very soon the newspapers are going to have a new headline---- "New thrillers are not coming out from the pen of the famous writer…" She smiles again and calls the lady constable, "Didi, can I have some paper and pen?"
