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 wide enough to fit three people. It was covered with a plain bedsheet with simple and elegant design and there was a cupboard by the side of his personal bathroom.
Ritvik hadn't heard anything about anyone else joining them from his mother. He didn't know what Arjun was trying to show him.
Is he tricking him again? He decided to get along with his trick.
" Ook… Your friend… Is he joining us today."
" Yes, Isn't it great to have him around."
Arjun replied. He wondered if Ritvik was not amazed seeing Rhythm.
Whereas Ritvik was more confused hearing his reply. He smiled awkwardly.
' Is he seeing things? Maybe a ghost..No No…. It is not possible.'
His expressions changed from being confused to be surprised. His eyes went over the whole room. But he was unable to find anything. Then instead of searching around, he averted his eyes towards the ground.
' Is this friend of him a tortoise like before?'
Arjun was enjoying watching him. He understood Ritvik was unable to find Rhythm.
While searching on the ground.
" Your friend..what is it this
"An atom" Arjun replied
At this Ritvik patience has given up. He looked over him only to find him laughing.
He knew it. He felt he was tricked again.
He was looking at him with anger.
" Shouldn't you use your senses even if you are tricking someone?"
But before he could say anything further.
Arjun held his hand.
"Rhythm come over here."
Rhythm was flying all around the room but as he heard him. He came over Rithvik's palm.
Ritvik was amazed to see him.
A tiny light dot was sitting peacefully over his hand. He realized Arjun was not tricking him. His eyes were fixed upon purple bright light.
Feeling his fixed gaze Rhythm couldn't restrain him anymore he lifted off from his palm. He went over to Arjun's shoulder.
"So Right... I guess my senses are working fine."
Arjun said with amusement.
Ritvik felt sorry. He felt if he hadn't scared Rhythm. He wondered if the tiny light dot can really speak. He wondered if he could understand him.
However, He could see Rhythm getting along well with Arjun. He wondered if he could also get along well with him. He hoped if he hadn't messed things up. He had so many questions running in his mind.
" When did you find him?"
" This afternoon. "
Ritvik extended his hand, he hoped for Rhythm to come over his palm.
Seeing him Arjun asked Rhythm.
" Try going over his palm one more time. Probably he won't scare you again."
he giggled a little.
Rhythm turned purple and he didn't want to go but on Arjun's insistence, he went over his palm again.
" Do you know me?"
Ritvik asked him. He presumed that Arjun had already told about him. He wished to hear his voice.
To his surprise, Rhythm turned Blue.
Arjun also felt a little amused.
Before Ritvik could say anything. He went back to Arjun's shoulder.
" Hey what happened? He was only asking you if you know him."
Arjun asked Rhythm.
Rhythm turned back purple.
" Ook... Yes, I know a little about him as I heard from you."
" Were you unable to understand what he said just now?"
Arjun asked him.
" Yes, I didn't... "
Arjun was also surprised at this. He didn't expect that Rhythm was only able to understand him.
He didn't know about this.
But then he felt that this is only good for his safety.
He saw Ritvik.
Ritvik felt a little upset. He also wanted to talk to him.
He wondered if he would be able to do that someday.
Feeling an awkward atmosphere engulfing the room. Arjun tried to turn the conversation.
" We still have to serve the snacks. I guess Uncle Arav and Aunt Smita must be waiting."
Arjun went towards the bookshelf that was placed by the side of Rithvik's study table. It had many showpieces that were placed above it.
He looked towards Rhythm. Indicating him to find his favourite piece.
Rhythm jumped over the camel. He looked over Ritvik, Indicating him to go outside.
" Rhythm you stay here, we will be back soon."
Soon, they both left the room.
Arjun slowly closed the door as he left the room.
Ritvik went straight to the kitchen. He began unpacking the snacks that were brought by Arjun. To his surprise, the snacks were sufficient as their dinner.
He smiled pleasingly understanding Aunt Mary's intention.
" About that earlier, With little time he will get along well with you too."
Arjun came into the kitchen.
" I understand that, don't worry."
Ritvik replied as he finished the plating.
However, both had the same question in mind. Whether Rhythm can really understand Ritvik
" First thing first, take this to Maa and Dad."
Arjun took the plates in his hands.
He knocked on Rithvik's parent's room.
He found his uncle had just closed the laptop. While his aunt was organizing the cupboard.
His uncle greeted him with his usual gracefulness. Seeing Arjun his aunt also closed her work.
" Arjun how is everyone at your home ?"
" Everyone is fine uncle."
"These are for both of you."
They couldn't deny his request.
They both looked over at each other and smiled a little.
Arjun noticed his uncle. His uncle was calm and composed.
Arjun felt to be calm and composed like him. Alike his father, his uncle was also his inspiration.
However, he felt someone should learn something from his father.
He averted his gaze towards Ritvik.
Ritvik indicated him to go back to his room.
Arjun compiled with him.
" Maa, Dad I wanted to ask you…."
Arjun heard his voice as he passed by their room.
" 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.
" I guess they may be going to sleep now. Let's get ready."." Yes"Ritvik nodded.As it wasn't appropriate to switch on the light back. They switched on the table lamp that had enlightened the room appropriately.They both changed into dark blue t-shirts and black trousers. They put on dark blue caps.They gave each other a good Hi-fi after they had dressed.Ritvik took out his sport's watch. He looked over Arjun as he noticed that he didn't have his beloved watch over his wrist."Take this"Arjun passed him a 'voki toki'.The Voki toki they had was not a professional one. But it was something that still works and could be helpful to them. And It had a hook behind it that could fix it on the belt.Though he was in the midd
Rhythm flew over from Arjun's shoulder and ascended forward." Hey Rhythm, wait for me."Arjun followed Rhythm, he carefully hid behind the second building. Rhythm went further but when he found that Arjun was not there behind him so he came back to Arjun. Ritvik also reached him.The fourth building can be clearly seen from the place where they had been hiding. It was appropriately lit with limited lights on the corridors. Two Guards could be seen from the place. One of the Guard was sleepy on his chair but the other one was actively guarding the building.Arjun and Ritvik placed their bicycles by the side of the second building and carefully crossed their path and hid behind one of the pillars of the office building." My bag"Arjun asked for his bag showing him his anger. Ritvik gave him his bag, giggling inside on his response.
Arjun went to the section which was also near the power supply room. He checked all the computers but he couldn't locate the one he was searching for. He felt disappointed. But then he felt he wanted to check the computer, he wanted to know exactly what was wrong with them. He connected the computer to the power supply switch but it didn't get started. He checked another computer but the result was the same. He then remembered that all the computers of the office must be having a single power supply switch alike their computer labs.Arjun went into the power supply room. This room was darker in comparison to other places. Wherever he puts his torchlight he can find wire bundles and many different kinds of wires all around. He was trying to locate one switch that can open up the power supply. But his torch went off. It made the room completely dark. This really scared him for a second. He couldn't see anything.But he gathered himself up. He st
It was around 5.15 Am when Arjun opened his eyes. He blinked his eyes collecting all the yesterday memories. He saw that the lights of the corridors were back to normal. Ritvik was still asleep.'Rhythm'He looked for Rhythm.As if Rhythm heard him, he flew to him and sat over his lap. Arjun felt happy to see him. His light was back to normal." You… alright."" Yes"Rhythm replied to him.Ritvik also woke up, he found Arjun was awake and he also saw Rhythm. He felt assured to see them both. He saw the time. It was already 5.25 am."Let's get out of here," Ritvik suggested them.Arjun nodded. They both were recalling the footsteps they heard. They both had only one question.'Were they locked inside?'Ritvik went to check the door. They were not locke
At Sterlite Electronics...Sterlite Electronics was one of the known Companies in India. If any issue arises in the company they would first have their own investigation and their own trials.Only after confirmation, a person could be sued in the Civil Court.In the meeting room...There was an elliptical table. Many people and executives were sitting there with Arav on the opposite side. Room was filled with the noise of accusations and complaints.He was holding on his file in his hands tightly that he had been preparing even after being accused. He thought he would get a say to speak for himself. He had been waiting for his turn to speak for himself but the executives and people had no intention of doing it. They were completely engrossed in putting on accusations and blames. After a while, he understood that investigation had not been transparent. The whole investig
Arjun and Ritvik were sitting over a bench. They were at a very silent and peaceful place that was hardly visited by anyone. The place was surrounded by many plants and trees.Ritvik was silently sitting over the bench and having his lunch. While Arjun was standing by the bench side. Rhythm was happy there, he was going all around the trees.Today's day wasn't a normal day for both of them it was a challenging day for all three of them.Arjun remembered their first period. How Rhythm hid behind him when his English teacher was greeted by everyone. He too felt bored sometimes but he never knew that school classes can even scare someone.They learnt that Rhythm can hear everyone but he can't understand anyone. So everything is noise for him that he can't understand. Especially when this noise comes in unison or when it is entangled up.Looking at him he felt if he hadn't
" Ohh, Were you thinking about me? I appreciate that."" Anyway, Did it go alright? I was worried for you being stretched till evening."Rudhir asked Arav while he was settling
