I noticed a window which was open in the other room and I opened it completely and jumped down from the window since the height was short.
I walked inside the jungle and tried to remember the path I followed yesterday. After 20 minutes, I could hear few voices and on approaching the spot, I noticed Sonia’s mother crying loudly and Rajesh consoling her. Raghav was standing besides the tree holding his mouth and crying silently.
I noticed a body covered with a white cloth on the floor which was soaking in blood and the police officers discussing among themselves.
I went near Raghav and placed my hand on his shoulder. He looked up and hugged me tightly. “Kalpi,….Kalpi…Sonia is…Sonia is dead…”
I felt helpless at that moment and tears kept rolling down my cheeks. I couldn’t imagine what Sonia must have experienced yesterday. That monster finished her completely.
I wish I could help her but now there was no use of regretting. She’s gone and now she’ll never come back. She was like a sister to me and the pain was unbearable.
