It was the third day of the court session and the 6th day after nancy's murder. she was a 7-year-old child who seemed to know all the locations of the possible proofs of the criminal. Though the criminal James wan is arrested the mystery continues... Nancy at her last breath said, "forgive him!" and then there was a deadly silence. the silence of a little girl tired of fighting with the world's most deadly poisonous chemical potassium cyanide which was injected in her blood vessels.


I was tired of answering the speaker, the judge, and the lawyers, even the officers. I returned home to find my wife fainted. I was terribly scared. Though Timmy our pet dog was behaving in an unusual way, still I was busy carrying my wife to bed.

As soon as she opened her eyes I asked,

"What happened honey?"

" Nothing just my head was spinning... what happened at court? did they let you go ?"

"no darling since I am the only witness, I have to stay, but we will think that later at first I want you to take some rest."


The next day morning at the court we came to know that the criminal was none other than nancy's brother,a dangerous serial killer suffering from mental problems. this 19 year old boy managed to kill his own parents in front of nancy which she tried to tell to the police. Thus,nancy faced death doing so. 


Therefore at the good news of the case's closure, I returned home. I was excited because my wife promised to give me a surprise.


On reaching home, my wife opened the door vigorously, snatched me up to the drawing room, beside our lawn and hugged me hard. I asked,

"What's the matter honey? anything special?" "congratulations Patrick!!! sooner or later you are going to be a father!" exclaimed Lucy. I was so excited and happy that I grabbed her towards myself and kissed her at her lips. We kissed for a while closing our eyes. As soon as I kissed Lucy's neckline,my eyes opened at the same unusual bark of Timmy.


I ignored it. I closed my eyes and hugged my wife from behind gently holding her baby bump. She was really happy. Suddenl , as she whispered in my ears,"I love you Patrick"...it reminded me of the whispers of Nancy for forgiveness..I was obsessed to think of a major question in my mind that why did she ask me for forgiveness...she could have told the officers at least. At that moment Timmy cried out, I opened my eyes out of terror to see the smiling face of Nancy at our lawn.

Hence, the mystery continues...
