I took two steps behind and kept staring at him. I started stammering and asked “What….What do you mean by this?”
“Why did you bring the photograph here? This is Raghav’s parents photographs and for the past 20 years, I have never brought any pictures inside this house. That room has been locked so that the evil remains outside this house but you…You opened that room and brought back the curse…Now I don’t know what will happen…”
“Raghav’s dad’s curse…” Rajesh said and I couldn’t believe his words. Raghav’s dad’s curse? How was that possible?
I kept asking myself these questions and asked Rajesh “How is this possible? This is just a photograph and …” I stopped when Raghav came out of the bathroom.
Rajesh signaled me to keep quite and hence I did not say anything.
I kept thinking if I should give him the gift or not but by then, Raghav approached us and asked Rajesh about the box in his hand. Rajesh was trying to hide it but Raghav took the box from his hand and saw the photo frame.
