Love can heal all wounds only when one is open to it. When you shut off yourself off from the love coming from the source, it becomes harder to heal.
”There is something suspicious about this girl,” Mrs. Nitya told Diya and Ragini in a whispered tone,” I feel she too is a part of the crime.”
”Yes, indeed,” said Ms. Manya walking towards them,” the spirits are telling me that she isnt as innocent as she portrays herself to be.”
”Ms. Manya,” said Diya feeling shocked,” you……..”
”She too is on this mission,” said Nisha,” I intended to tell you but that attack you had………”
”The thing is,” said Ms. Manya in a hushed voice,” they are laying a trap.”
”Did the spirits say anything about that man Nisha told me about?” asked Mrs. Nitya.
”I did pull out some cards,” said Ms. Manya,” they revealed a forgotten love affair and betrayal.”
”I cant figure this out,” said Diya,” please explain it well.”
”Look here my dear,” said Ms. Manya trying to keep her voice as low as possible,” this kidnapping was just a means to keep the investigators busy. They are planning something big and dangerous. And that man who was talking about you may not know of you being here.”
”Dont worry my dear,” said Mrs. Nitya looking at their scared faces,” we are all here for you.”
”What do you think about all this?” asked Vivan as all four of them were having dinner together.
”It all connects back to the guest who went missing in Dehradun. They havent found him yet,” said Arjun.
”Maybe,” said Diya taking the lid off the rice pot,” but then howcome this girl was spared?”
”Thats the most surprising thing,” said Arjun eating his salad.
”What are your views on this Nisha?” Vivan asked her.
”All right,” she said drinking her soup,” those who dont believe me can shut their ears now because I am going to make some interesting revelations.”
Vivan smiled looking at Arjun who almost dropped his spoon on hearing this.
”So,” began Nisha,” what if there are three people involved here. One being this girl here and the other two being the missing men?”
”The missing men?” asked Vivan taken aback by her statement.
”We all saw the CCTV recording that day,” continued Nisha,” Mr. Das’ son had already left the hotel. So maybe the man whom I saw was someone else.”
”And maybe,” said Diya,” that man you saw being attacked is a common link here.”
”How is it possible,” said Arjun,” that a man vanishes from the hotel and no one notices it.”
”I can answer that,” said Nisha looking at him,” they all are trying to hide this fact.”
”Why will they do so?” asked Vivan serving himself some curry.
”No one can say that,” said Diya in a soft tone,” the night when I was attacked, no one would have noticed if I would have disappeared as well.”
”Maybe thats what they had wanted,” said Nisha leaning back,” but they could not do that as you are a real hero.”
”Thats so sweet,” said Vivan with an adorable smile on his face.
”So according to you,” said Arjun looking at Nisha,” the hotel authorities are involved in all this?”
”It can be worse,” said Diya with a scared look on her face,” what if some guests are involved too?”
”Thats a valid point,” said Vivan,” its hard to trust anyone here.”
