'' Ah, where are these sounds coming from ".
It was 6. 30 in the morning. Arjun was denying that he was hearing any sounds but after a while, he remembers...
' Today is the first day of school."
Is it mum, oh noooo'
He opened his eyes, sat on his bed and he got it. His father was standing by the corner of bed like a culprit.
And he saw his mother near open cupboard.
'' Rudhir, you are the manager of the company, do you even know what is management ".
Then she looked towards Arjun.
'' Arjun, you are up too, don't you know your school is resuming today''.
'' You both are definitely father and son, nobody knows how to place things in their right place ''.
" Rudhir, I really don't understand why is it so difficult to choose office clothes that whole cupboard is messed up every other day ''...
Arjun and his father, they were both looking at each other as if they are saying
'' Dad, son... Today we are definitely done for ''
Anna goes to the kitchen to find water from the refrigerator when she saw a box of potato stuffing right before her.
' Marry thank you, if it wasn't for you, I would be definitely late today'.
Arjun had realized his mother was late today. This thing was common, that happens every Monday.
' Meanwhile, both Arjun and his father was thinking, how to change his mother mood'
When her mother came to them and said...
'' Both of you, have you seen time, go to the upper room and get ready, Mary had already prepared the stuffing, I will take care of rest ''.
'' Phuuuf, Yes mum.''
Rudhir also signed relief
'' yes boss ''.
'' We will be ready in no time ''
They both disappeared from the room like air. Both were thanking Mary inside their mind.
'' Thank you, Aunt Mary, you saved us ''.
" Thanks to my friend ''...
Just like every other home their family routine also gets messed up, when schools reopen after two months. Going back to routines, waking up on time takes a little while.
Arjun and his father got ready for their office and school respectively. They came downstairs and found that Anna had prepared both of their lunches and breakfast. She was ready for her office too.
His mother was back to normal. She looked towards them.
'' I have done everything, take your breakfast. Arjun be disciplined at school. "
"Rudhir sent him off to school on time. ''
''I will have to leave now, or I will miss the Metro ''
'' Okay, sweetheart be careful on your way, bye''.
" bye mum, take care".
" bye, you too take care as well "
Anna left for her office
Now here at home, they both had their breakfast and they were both ready for their destination.
They both didn't want to talk about the morning incident.
" Arjun, let's go we should leave too".
Arjun brought the lock, they closed the house and they were both off to work.
They were both halfway to school, while they were crossing the square intersection they were both hoping for something but...
'' Damm, not again Ahh... Son, don't worry ,we will reach on time".
They got stuck in traffic. This square intersection was the busiest intersection of this city.
Arjun was looking at his father with disbelief.
Somehow they managed to cross the square and reached their school. Arjun was late, he was silently preparing himself.
His father dropped him.
'' Son, I know we are late but I know you can manage it. "
Arjun looked towards his father helplessly. As he had no option but to manage it.
"Okay, have a great day ''.
His father replied to him. He was a little disappointed. He thought he would definitely manage it, but what can he do now.
Arjun knew this will happen. This was not the first time for him.
'' Okay dad bye, you too have a great day. ''
He waved back to his father and went towards the School.
His father was watching him as he was on his way to his school 'International school of 21st century'.
'' My son ''.
His father was watching him as he was approaching his school.
Arjun had brown hair, his hair was short but little above his forehead. He was fair. He looked cool in his uniform. He had blue eyes and a sincere heart. He had worn his uniform which had a white shirt, with a blue tie and blue pants. He was holding a green bag which definitely had ben 10 on his back. As he was a die-hard fan of ben 10.
A man approached Rudhir's car.
'' Thank you for waiting;
Sir, I was a little late ''.
" No problem, I just reached here. Get inside the car".
It was Mr Sam, he was working under Rudhir at the company.
They were both in the car. Rudhir opened the compartment right in front of him. He was surprised at first, but he laughed.
''Mr Sam, I need a favour from you ".
He picked up his broken watch and handed it over to him.
" Please help me getting it fixed".
" Please make sure not to mention it to Anna".
Mr Sam understood
" Yes sir, but isn't it 7 th time, why don't you scold your son. ''
Rudhir started his car and they were off to the office.
'' Why would I do that, My son is following in his father's footsteps, We must let our children explore their curiosities."
At first, Mr sam was inspired by his words but...
''Arjun will definitely become a great engineer".
Hearing him he thought in his mind.
' All Indian parents are one and the same '.
At schoolArjun felt a little assured.As the Assembly is over, now at least he won't have to be embarrassed before others. He was approaching his class but, his principal caught him.'' Arjun, late again."" Come to the office right away ".Arjun thought in his mind..' Ahhh! if I would have been 5min later, I would not have been discovered. Can't that busy square could've kept us more engaged. No, if only I would have been little slow, Ahh nothing now, Arjun be ready'.Arjun followed his principal to her office.'' May I come in..Mam. "'' Yes, so What excuse do you have today?.''The principal of his school knew almost everyone in the school ,be it a teacher or a student or any other person. She has been very efficient at her work.'' Amm mm, We got stuck in traffic…. Mam ''.&
Arjun looked around to find his aunt, he had recognized her voice but he was unable to find her anywhere.' Aunt probably turned the wrong way.'Meanwhile.." Caught you…. But.. , hey.. where am i now?"While RH18 was trying to catch his electron, he too went inside the mobile cover, with the chip.He thought..' But, which surface can bind me'.Then he came out, proudly through the cover. He flew towards Arjun, who was trying to look for his aunt.Arjun got startled .He realized, he was.. actually hearing the little light dot that was going all around him.The little light dot came towards his head and sat there.'' 7 billion neurons, a human! ''Listening to him, Arjun smiled.'' Ohh, I haven't heard su
'Hey Rhythm, I know you are enjoying it inside. But please come out. I am really very hungry.''How will i be able to have my lunch knowing you are inside?'Arjun was having his lunch with potatoes and his eyes were fixed upon the curry.Finally Rhythm came out.Arjun sighed with relief. This time Rhythm sat on the table besides Arjun.Things have changed for him. Just an hour before he was free to go inside or outside things that were around him. He always liked to play around. But now for the first time his actions were affecting someone.The lesson that comes to him this way is 'carefulness'. This is an important lesson for him.Barriers in our life on one hand put limitations on ourselves on the other hand gives us direction.As for Arjun, he was happy to see Rhythm
On opening up his phone, He tried to see if anything had changed inside. But he was unable to find anything and then his attention went to an app. He remembered that it was not something that was downloaded by him and it was entitled' PROXIMA CENTAURI '." Proxima Centauri, If I remember correctly then it is the nearest Star to Earth."Rhythm came over Arjun's shoulder.And he watched as Arjun clicked on the app. It opened up to show many many portals. The title of these portals seems to be in another language. However, he randomly clicked on these portals one after the other. All these portals consist of many tools. Arjun had absolutely no idea what they were about. But he was able to recognize one portal. So he stopped there.'This portal seems to be a programming portal. 'He thought.Arjun's mother was a software engineer so he knew som
After Arjun left, Mary decided to inform his parents in this regard. As she had expected, His parents agreed on Arjun's decision. As this was the least they can do.Meanwhile, Arjun came to his room and Rhythm followed him along. He was occupied with his thoughts and was completely busy in picking things up and putting them in his backpack. These things include books, helicopter, marbles, bottle spray etc.Rhythm kept watching him. He knew something had happened but he waited for him to explain.In the other room, Mary was busy packing his luggage. Arjun had his own room but all of his important belongings were kept in his parent's room.After Arjun completed his packing. He looked towards Rhythm. Then, He extended his hand again like a landing base.Rhythm came over and swiftly landed upon his hand. He turned indigo. He gently pla
" This incident affected my father greatly, Although everything sorted out in the end; he changed his job and came to management. My mother started working too."" If we didn't stop them, who knows how many more people will suffer "Arjun signed heavily and worriedly, As it had been very difficult for him to accept these situations. He never understood how someone could harm others.Rhythm didn't know what to reply. It was as if he was scratching his head, but he must say something.So, In the next moment, he swirled around Arjun. As he swirled around him, A blue light traced its path.Arjun blinked his eyes twice. It took him a few seconds to realize what happened just now. It was definitely a yes from him. He was both surprised and rejoiced inside. At this moment it was as if he forgot about everything." Rhythm one more time. Please.."&nbs
Arjun too stood up, he held him on his shoulders and pushed him on his bed back.Ritvik got startled by his sudden action." I want to introduce you to someone."Arjun replied to him, meeting his questioning look." Meet Rhythm "Arjun directed his gaze towards Rhythm who had been sitting by the window while they had been busy with their conversation.Ritvik looked over. He felt something passed by his eyes. But he was only seeing curtains that have been enveloping the windows.Rithvik's room was like Arjun's room in terms of size and architecture. His room was elegant in its own way. As the room had cream coloured walls which complemented with dark brown curtains that were enveloping two big windows. There was one window by the side of his bed. There was a small lamp on his study table. His bed was wid
" Maa, Dad, I wanted to ask you…."Arjun heard his voice as he passed by their room. He went back to Rithvik's room.As he opened the door. Rhythm was right there in front of him. Probably he was waiting for him to be back.Arjun got a little surprised as Rhythm flew over his shoulder."Did you miss me already?"He asked him with his pleasant smile." No"Rhythm replied to him looking towards the other direction.Then Arjun sat on Rithvik's bed.He extended his index finger. Rhythm flew over on tip of his finger.Arjun fixed his gaze over him." No doubt, you can amaze anyone."He always felt a little mesmerized as he looked over at him.
