    Everybody was looking towards me. Sanjay gave me a questioned look. But I ignored him.

    “I screwed up”, I said to myself, as I took that crumbled paper out of my pocket.

    “It was so simple, how could I screw this up”, I said but then I realized that it is not the right time to say all this.

    “I think we shouldn’t seize 308”, I went near to Sanjay saying loudly.

    I could see the smile on brokers face with my statement. Sanjay gave me a surprised look, I nodded giving him assurance.

    “Ok”, he said.
    .
    .
    .
    It was already 9:00, As I was going out, Shikha & Broker came to me.
    “Thanks dude for saving that flat from being seized”, broker said
    I nodded.

    “My husband didn’t kill Shweta, she was his sister, how could he kill her”, Shikha said

    “I know”, I said

    “You know?” she said surprised

    “Don’t worry; there is one more clue, which I just remembered. I will get it tomorrow, nothing will happen to Amit”, I said

    “Why tomorrow, why not tonight”, broker asked

    “For now I can only tell you guys that, it’s dangerous to be in 308 at night & I mean it”, I said.
    .
    .
    .
    I reached my flat.

    And opened my laptop, put the SD Card inside

    “What would be the password”, I said to myself, “I know who has done it even why he has done it, but to confirm I have to open this SD card”

    ‘All for his Love’, I thought, “I also loved someone, but I didn’t resorted to killing people to get her”, I said, but this time it was not a flash of Shweta which came through my mind but it was HER face which went past my eyes.

    I suddenly remember the whole conversation, which we three had during our lunch,

    “So now you will be using her name as desktop password?”,

    That should be it, I typed the name.

    There was no pop-up, as password was accepted.

    “There is a Pandora-Box here”, I said to myself.

    ‘She wanted him to take her from this hell, so if I am not wrong than this 10 digit no. is…”, I typed that into a portal.

    “Gotcha, now you are screwed”, I said.

    I punched my head, “these were the easiest clues anyone could have ever get”, I said.
    .
    .
    .
    At around 11:00, I went to the third floor, cautious enough to not to be caught.
    The key was with the broker which in a way was nice, because I knew I didn’t need the key.

    I went near the door, as it started unlocking. Again a “Click” & the door got unlocked.

    I went in and sat near the door as the door closed again, I have left the lock there, so that it could be locked again.

    The room was cold as always but as the time progressed, I felt the room was getting warmer, I looked towards the second room, and spirit was sitting in same posture at the second door.

    Although terrified, but I tried to ignore him. As we both were waiting for a common person.

    I checked my phone it was 2:00 AM now, we both were sitting in same position for around 3 hrs now, I was keeping my phone in my hand, as I have told Sanjay that I will be calling him as soon as my trap work & till then he should not come near my building, because it may make our culprit cautious.

    “He has to come, why he is not coming”, I said to myself.

    Suddenly I saw the spirit rising, his eyes were now burning with anger, I understood what it meant.

    I heard the lock outside open, and someone slowly open the latch, “Thak”.

    The door opened only for a moment and a shadow was inside,

    The room was filled with cold winds, but he was unmoved, even he didn’t reacted to the Angry spirit standing in front of him.

    I realized that only I could see & feel all these things.

    He couldn’t see me as I was in a dark corner, but I didn’t need to see him as I knew who he was.

    He switched-on a torch and entered the second room.
    .
    .
    “Hi Varun”, I said from behind.

    He stumbled as he turned towards me, “Wh..o are you?”

    “We can have the introduction later, after you are done searching for the evidence”, I replied.

    “I know that you killed Pankaj & then Shweta, but I am not sure why? I also check your SD-Card, and your College pics with Shikha, you were in a relationship right?, until she ditched you to marry Amit, must have been a great heartache, to get ditched”, I said trying my best to make him angry.

    “She never ditched me, she was forced to marry that idiot Amit. He knew she loved me but he still marry her, she loved me all along”, he said

    “So that’s why she went into depression”, I said

    “You know many things, I am impressed”, Varun said.

    “You will be more impressed, I checked your PNR no. of your ticket for Shikha & yourself “, I said, “You know, I should have understand in first place when you were missing with your wallet, I also missed it when I saw the blood traces in Bathroom, Sanjay was right they did checked the Bathroom, but that time, there was none, because you killed Pankaj later”, I continued.

    “But one thing I didn’t understood why did you kill Pankaj and Shweta”, I asked

    “I never wanted to kill Pankaj, my idea was simply to stage an disappearance act, I deliberately left my cell-phone so that my SD-Card can be scanned & Police should catch Amit as culprit, that he killed me because of my affair with his wife that b*stard was the reason my Shikha had to suffer so much, , but that stupid Pankaj took the memory card out for transferring games & my plan got failed, I had already booked a train ticket to a town in Punjab too in advance hoping that everything will sort out in a maximum of 1 week”

    “The one fault which I did was, I missed one letter of her in that room which was having the PNR no., which Pankaj found out, Also I had told Pankaj once that I have a GF named Shikha, so he tried Shikha as password to that Locked folder, & he understood what was going on”

    “He sent me a mail on my personal email-id, that he is facing pressure from police & I should return or he will tell the police, I told him to wait & I will come & handle everything”, he paused for some time, “I couldn’t let him ruin my plan, I returned that night, Pankaj has already packed, I told him that I will go to Police next morning, Next morning, when he went for a bath, I knew that was the perfect place to hit the nail, I took the fan which he already removed last night & hit a perfect blow”

    “Just one shot & he was over, I did a little packing to cool him down, then finally to the bay, I guess my Martial-Arts skill did helped me finally”, he said, I could hear a cruel laughter. “But to be honest, I never knew I would need to kill Shweta, Shikha told me about you, so I realized that there may be something which I left inside, which is why you are getting suspicious, the day Shikha told me that you have left the flat, I returned to search, but poor Shweta she had a fight with Amit and she wanted to take a fresh air, she came out & saw the door opened, she tried to play detective, so, I was left with no other option”

    “I also came to this floor that night & I also saw this flat open, but I didn’t entered, Actually now I got it, this Lock was having one key only, because you never returned the one which to belong yours”, I said, "That's how Pankaj was betrayed by his friend"

    “You ruined my plan, first that idiot, now you”

    “Yes, I am that Idiot, Shikha has given a great description of me”, I said, “But rest we will talk in Police Station”, I pressed green button on the phone which was already displaying Sanjay’s no.

    “No Network Coverage”… the Message appeared.

    “Two down, one to go”, Varun said as he pounced on me

    “Shi…”, I was never able to complete my word, As he hit my head on the wall.

    A surge of pain jolted my entire body as I fall on the ground, I was on the ground trying to pick myself up, but my all tries were going in vain. I was almost paralyzed with that blow. I was lying in my pool of blood.

    I was losing my sight, but I could see a shadow walking towards me.

    Behind him, I could see the glowing Spirit of Pankaj standing, his eyes filled with Anger & helplessness.

    I gave him a weak smile. I tried to speak, but couldn’t.

    By now Varun was standing behind me, he wrapped something around my neck, and started strangling me,

    “Uhh”, I could only utter this much.

    “You tried to trick me, now you will die too”, Varun said grinding his teeth.

    I knew I was about to die. My every moment from childhood started flashing in front of my eyes.

    My first day at school,
    My Birthday celebration,
    Cycle rides with my brother,
    Video game fights with my brother,
    Eating with my parents,
    Cricket matches with friends,
    First meeting with Shweta,
    Propose,
    First date,
    Joining ABC Company,
    Break-up,
    Meeting HIM,
    Seeing HER,

    First day at this Flat.

    Watching her dropping at her Stop & my silent bye’s

    Tear Drops started falling from my eyes as I know that I couldn’t relive any of those again.

    I wished everyone ‘Goodbye’ in my mind.

    Pankaj was watching helplessly, I looked at him, trying to say from my bulging eyes

    ‘that it’s ok; it’s not your fault’.

    Suddenly something strange happen as the spirit of Pankaj flow through the air & entered my body, it felt as if a surge of lightning has entered me. I pushed upward & I was up as Varun misbalanced & fall back. I could feel my strength getting double.

    I hold Varun by the neck and pushed him up. There was a glow around me. He was now 1 feet above the ground, hitting my hand trying to ease my grip, but was unable to. Slowly his body started getting loose.

    “No I can’t kill him”, but my hands were not listening, “Please Pankaj, we shouldn’t kill him, else what will be the difference between you & him, Please Pankaj you won’t be free, if you kill him”. I felt my grip getting loose. Finally I dropped him; he falls down on the floor coughing.

    I started walking out.

    “You Fool, now you are gonna die”, Varun screamed from behind. He was holding a piece of stone from the slab. He ran towards me to hit me.

    Suddenly something glows on my face. “Pankaj” he screamed & fell back, his head crashing on the wall. As soon as he fell down, Pankaj’s spirit released my body & I fall again on the ground, like an autumn leaf.

    In front of me was Pankaj, his face was no more covered with blood, he was looking like a normal man.

    “So he died?” I asked him.

    He nodded as ‘No’.

    “Sorry I screwed up your simple clues, but better late than never”, I said giving a weak smile.

    He didn’t reply, just turned back and started floating towards the balcony.
    “Bye, you are free now”, I said from behind, trying to sit on my knees.

    He turned back, came near to me,

    “I know you better than anyone else in this world, you have freed me, now time to free yourself, come out of this fantasy world, start a new life, stop pondering in the past,

    And one day you will realize your true potential & Hey you like HER”, He hugged me & disappeared.

    I heard Sanjay shouting behind me and sound of many people running towards me, but I fell down & fainted.

    I regain my conscious after 5 hours, Sanjay was standing beside me. I told him everything censoring Pankaj’s spirit in my body & also that Pankaj’s body is in the Bay. Varun was arrested.

    Pankaj’s body was recovered next day, and was properly cremated.

    As for me, I have started my transition from this Fantasy World to Real World…
