Suddenly a loud CRASH was heard, the laughter turned into screams. Rithwik stood on the stage trying to comprehend things but before he could even finish thinking the sound was heard again 'CRASH'. A part of the auditorium's roof fell down crushing people under it, Rithwik's eyes enlarged as he saw this devastation, "What's happening" was the only question he could ask himself. The crowd ran like crazy and stood infront of the large door which permitted one to feel the outside world but no one could open it because it got jammed. Children stood with their family, crying helplessly. A bodyguard came towards Rithwik's still body, "Sir," he politely said "We have arranged a mini van for you, it has all the safety equipments with bulletproof windows, it also has-" "How many people can it occupy?" Rithwik asked before the bodyguard complete his speech, "Sir, approximately 60 people at a time "he replied back"Can you arrange more vans like these?" Rithwik asked "Yes sir!" the bodyguard spoke affirmatively. Rithwik grabbed the mic from the stage and announced, "PEOPLE, DON'T WORRY...WE HAVE ARRANGED TRANSPORT FOR YOU ALL..PLEASE DISPERSE THIS VERY MOMENT".

The people instead of standing infront of the large doors of the auditorium banging and trying to breakfree themselves from the torture ran across the green room and led themselves outside away from the auditorium. Rithwik started to gather people and lead them to the green room where they would exit. Rithwik's eyes fell on a little girl sitting down the aisle weeping. He went near her and said, "Hey c'mon, I'll take you out of here", "ANI" was her reply. Rithwik bent towards her to meet her height, "What happened girl?" he said caressing her cheeks, although he has never fathered a child but his affection for children never died in his heart. Infact this laughter show, was hosted by him to raise money for underprivileged children. His dream was to be a father which could never get fullfilled. "No daisy!" she said as she pointed towards a torn doll stuck under a part of the roof.

Rithwik knew what she was saying, the reason for her overflowing tears. Suddenly, a loud noise was heard 'BANG' the rest part of the roof fell down again crushing the people. Rithwik and the liitle girl were near that site, he made the girl hid behind his broad shoulders which was enough for the girl to hide. His white linen Gucci shirt tore and become red as blood was dripping from it."Mama!!!!!" the girl cried as she weeped on Rithwik's shoulder. Rithwik could understand her plight as he himself had gone through it when his parents were dead shot in front of him during the ISIS attack. He hugged the girl and said, "Don't worry" and carried her in his bleeding arms and gave her to the bodyguard who safely carried her to the van.

After the roof fell down, the sky was visible to all eyes. Everyone expects the evening sky to be a very peaceful and serene with the orangish hues taking place of the clear blue, but this vision was rather someone cannot even imagine in their lifetime. The horrified faces look up the sky, and to their sight it was completely BLOOD RED. It started to rain, Rithwik loved rains the hot fritters and an evening tea was coming in his memories. He let his hand free in the rain as he wanted feel the dewdrops. DEWDROPS? Rithwik's wide palm had a red colour fluid present in the between. Rithwik took a closer look, It was nothing but BLOOD. People after getting the knowledge of blood falling down as rain became more horrified than they were before. The auditorium was nearly empty, until the doors fell down massacring the people. The last words that were heard were just the horrendous screams"AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!".Now Rithwik stood as the only living body admist all the dead bodies. He again went and stood on the stage, the once visions of performing in front of all these people turned to what he was seeing in the present. He was awestruck by the change in event which turned out to be horrendous and terrifying."Sir, please come with me "the bodyguard said. Rithwik did not move and just asked a question, "What date is today?"He asked the bodyguard. "31stDecember 2089" was the bodyguard's reply. Rithwik stood struck, all the thoughts vanished only "THE GREAT DELUGE" was the only words which came out of his mouth, the curtain rod fell on him leaving him dead on the stage which completed his show.
