A series of short quick stories
|Some times a lot can be said in just a few words...|
|“I was not even present at the parking lot, I have not done anything to her”
The screams of Mr Seth fell on deaf ears as the police dragged him out of his house,charging him with kidnapping of Sheila.
“Why don't you believe me,I was having dinner with my family yesterday night “ Seth pointed to his sobbing wife and terrified children who were standing at the corner of the room .
“ Convince the judge that the CCTV footage which clearly shows you abducting her and you will be free as a bird” The inspector scoffed at him as he dragged him to the Jeep.
A shadow appeared at the window of the dark neighbouring house,watching, as Seth was escorted into the Jeep and taken away leaving behind a distraught and confused family.
A blue light glowed behind the shadow emitting a dull almost inaudible beep.
“Specimen transfer complete”
“Suspect on earth arranged with evidence ?”
The shadow read the glowing display and pressed the green button below the display
“Departing earth in 2 hours, rendezvous at launch pad”
The shadow pressed the green button again before walking out of the house from the back door.
Their tenth and final human specimen transfer ,mission was complete it was time to leave earth and go back to their planet for the next step,cloning of humans .
|The barks no longer were sharp or fierce ,the growls could hardly be heard.
“One of the best guard dogs we have had.”
Simran commented,taking a deep breathe to avoid choking with the sadness she felt, as remembered the three attempts of robbery Selu had prevented just by sniffing out the arms even before the robbers could touch the door of the bank
“But even the best have to retire.”
Atul tried to console Simran as the van with , “Woof Animal shelter” written in huge fonts on it with a picture of happy looking dog ,stopped at the entrance.
“Heard it is one of the best shelters in the country.” added Atul.
Simran looked towards Selu as it looked back at his owner, Simran, who had got him to the bank when he was just a few months old. As their eyes met for one last time, it was as if both were reliving all their memories once more before Selu barked one last time towards Simran before hopping on to the van.
