Chapter 4

I looked at him blankly. I couldn’t understand.

“But, I saw a lady!”

The wishhe sighed. “Let’s talk over chai. Come, dada. It’s not wise to stand here”
I followed the man out, my curiosity elevated to touch the sky.
What wish?” I asked “Please tell me everything you know”

I am Subir Das. I have been living in this neighbourhood for the last fifty years. Ashim, uncle Nishikanto’s son is my friend. We used to play together when we were children.
I gather you don’t know me?”
I remembered then, Ira talking about her brother’s best friend, Subir.
I have heard about you, that’s it” I smiled.
He continued.
About twenty years ago, after the death of uncle Nishikanto, Ashim shifted to south Calcutta. He said it was closer to his workplace.”
Subir sipped on his tea. My curious heart beat faster as an eerie fear gripped my throat.

Only Irabati, Ashim’s younger sister stayed back in this house. She didn’t marry. For many years, her aunt used to live with her but after her death, Irabati used to live alone. We used to visit her often and keep her company.
Just two years ago, a fatal heart attack took hold of her and she died. Since then, no one goes in the house. Ashim tried to sell the house but somehow, couldn’t. No one liked its atmosphere. Some even said about a ghostly presence. But it is a fact, even I felt her presence sometimes. And today, you saw her!”
I was dumbstruck with pain.

My Ira was dead!

What was the wish Subir was talking about? How will the narrator, Nishir react, what will he do? Who was the lady then and why could only Nishir see her?

Just wait for the last one!

      And I haven’t published any book or short story because maybe I am too small for that? Haha, I don’t know if I write good enough but I do have a plan to work on it. I feel honoured you asked me this. 😃

      1. My pleasure and I was happy to nominate you 🙂 you surely deserve it!
        I know, I was worried, because probably I had to make multi comments for the nominees so reason why WP took my comments to Spam, especially comment with a link
        Glad you checked your spam and glad you’ll have fun answering my questions 😀 ❤

  4. Well done! Why do wonderful stories like Kahani, Kahani2 originate from Kolkata?🙏 Well, I see a scriptwriter can either turn Irabati into a blockbuster or a great producer director can turn it into a TV thriller serial. Pardon my free flow feedforward, but I say what I feel. I lack the flair, flavour, articulation so decipher my message positively. Regards 👌👌👌🙏🙏🙏

    1. You give me so much happiness with your words. This is more than an honour for me that you think so. I don’t know if I have that talent what you speak of but I am grateful that you read and appreciate me. Thank you so much! I love thrillers, hope I will write it well too.
      And you have put into words everything, no need to decipher it. 😊😊

      1. I rarely comment on blogs. Generally click like. If i feel strongly about, I do share a feedforward or praise. IMHO, you deserve the praise, Yes. it may take time to open up the mind and look at the Sky as limit or no limit – nothing wrong in extrapolating afterall that is also a creativity tool for an author. Regards. Jay
