    Yes Mistt, the story is completely fictional in nature, and all the characters are imaginary too.

    You are also right that the Joker cannot let Rajan die at that juncture.

    Episode 31

    The dog would have torn his throat into pieces, hadn't there been a typical whistling sound from someone behind.

    Rajan opened his eyes to note that the aggressive dog went back, and within a minute the armed men accosted him. Ranjan was in the forefront with a sinister smirk on his face.

    "Good show, Sweetie! You did well! Better luck next time!" Rajan could not understand whether he was praising him or mocking him! So, he remained silent. Also, he was too frightened to speak.

    "Our viewers must have enjoyed your caricature to the core, I am damn sure. That's why we let you attempt this escape."

    "Viewers? What viewers?" Rajan was completely flummoxed.

    "Tch! Tch! You haven't figured this yet? We are running a reality show, where you are a contestant. We have more than ten thousand viewers across the globe."

    Rajan was so terrified that he forgot to apply his brain, thus he blurted,

    "Which channel is showing this?"

    Everyone burst into laughter. Ranjan had to hold his stomach with both hands, as he was guffawing hysterically. However, he controlled his laughter, and he handcuffed Rajan. He said,

    "Let's go to our den. I will tell you during our walk.

    Yes Rajan, you are being watched by more than ten thousand of people across the world. Many of them have become your fan. But, our show is too gory and too ghastly to be shown in any television channel. But, we telecast our show live in the dark net among our esteemed viewers."

    At last, Rajan had a clear sense of what is happening to him. So he asked,

    "You kidnapped me for running a reality show and earn a few bucks? I already offered you money for my release. Pray, tell me what amount of money you want?"

    "Ha ha! Don't make me laugh any more. Already, my belly is aching because of excessive laughter. You have already offered me a crore. Do you know that the membership fee for one customer is 10000 US dollar? Do you know that each and every viewer participate in our online gambling, like who will be killed this week, or who will be the survivor? We earn an enormous amount of booty from that. We have many more interesting activities other than this show which give us a steady flow of revenues. So, don't dare to think that you can get away from here with that pittance."

    "Oh Amma!", Rajan screamed within a couple of steps. He felt a sharp pain in his pelvic region. This was due the fall from the jump.

    "Why do you do what you are not supposed to? I am very much ashamed to know that the IIT has produced a birdbrain like you! How on earth you thought that we would let you escape from this place so easily? Didn't it occur in your dull head that we were playing with you? Tch Tch!"

    Rajan didn't say anything. He struggled to walk even a single step. Ranjan was not in a mood of mercy. He clasped Rajan's arm tightly, and literally dragged him on the ground. But, after 20 more steps, Ranjan realised that Rajan was indeed hurt, and was unable to walk. So, with a demeanour of extreme disgust he said,

    "So, you can't walk. That's good. This means that you will not be able to give any resistance during your test. It's another matter of fact that if you show any resistance, you will be instantly killed."

    He stopped and rang someone saying something in a coded language. Within 5 minutes an ambulance came. Rajan was again blindfolded, and taken to the floor of that hellhouse where the most modernised hospital of the country was situated. Rajan was given a couple of injections. He had to take a few medicines as well. Finally, a nurse massaged him in such way that within half an hour, he forgot about the pain. At that moment, Ranjan appeared in that room.

    Looking at Ranjan's stiffened jaw on his boney face, the pain seemed to have reappeared. Ranjan laughed at him and said,

    "See, how good our medical facility is! You must be feeling as agile as a bull calf! But, I have to warn you, if you love your life, and if you want to see your family again, don't show any resistance during the test. I know you would have loved to have some rest before the test, but I am afraid sweetie, we are terribly short of time. Our viewers are eagerly waiting to see you mauled by two hunks."

    Rajan was taken to the first floor hall, where there was a large LCD screen. Ranjan said,

    "Please take a seat on the sofa. The Joker will give you a short message. I will be waiting outside the door to take you to the previous ***room where you made such a fuss."

    Within few seconds, the Joker's face appered on the giant screen. In his usual nasal tone he said,

    "Good show Rajan! Generally, we write enthralling plots in this show. We always try to bring new entertainment to our esteemed viewers. But, what you did was indeed amazing! It was not as if we didn't know that you could react in that manner. We apprehended your moves, and we planned accordingly. But, that's not what I am praising. I am praising your innovative and acrobatic attempts to flee. Your pole vault jump was indeed superb, and the chip shot you took at Ranjan!

    No, no! Don't think that I am lying! Ranjan has been a champion fighter. In his 10 years of stint in this company, no body could take him down as you did. The way you ran towards the fence was indeed extraordinary.

    To be continued on Friday evening

    The Joker seemed to be pleased with Rajan. Maybe he will allot him an easier job.

    Yes, I intend to finish the story by the year end.

    Thanks RS for your comment. Yes, the situation is very grim for Rajan. Wait for few minutes to see if he can escape from the quagmire.

    Episode 32

    Regarding your effort to clear the fence, It was not just that our viewers gave you 5 star rating, but we have measured that you were almost able to do the unthinkable. You had no traing of jumping with a pole. The pole we kept for you was neither conducive for this sport! I hope you understand that we didn't want one of the contestant of our mega hit show to flee in midst of the show. It was another matter of fact that our snipers were waiting outside the wall for you. No contestant has achieved that feat so far. Naturally, we made things difficult for you.


    But, do you know what you did? You were just 1 meter short! Bravo!"

    Rajan was discombobulated, he didn't know how to react. He could not understand that whether he should feel happy to know the hidden talent of a polevaulter inside him, or should he feel extremely sad to know that his effort went in vain by a whisker!

    Relishing Rajan's dumbfounded expressions, the Joker continued,

    "Better luck next time! But, to have another chance you have to pass today's test, which happens to be the third of the five tests that you will have to face to get out unscathed from this house. Believe me this one is a very easy one, you must have already heard it from Ranjan. Ranjan has chosen the test for you. Throughout your life you showed extreme disdain for the gay people. You did a great harm to Ranjan's career because of your extreme hatred towards the gay community. So, it's the time for gays to take revenge on you.

    The test is that you will have to face them without showing any resistance for one hour. We have kept them celebate for 7 days. So, they will be aggressive, and they may take you many times during that one hour. But, you cannot raise even a finger at them. It is another matter of fact that even if you do that it will not matter to them, as these two hunks are ten times more powerful than you. But, as I said, it's a test for you. So listen carefully.

    If you push them or if you kick them or punch them or even snap a fingure at them, you will be shot on your head. By now you must know that we do what we say. So, if you love your life, and if you again want to live as a free man with your loved ones, bear it and grin."

    The screen went blank. With his head down, Rajan came out of the room. Ranjan was waiting for him. He took him to the "***room", and before closing the door from outside said,

    "Best of luck!"

    The light in the room was very dim. But, even in that dim light what Ranjan saw was indeed frightening. One of the guy Roger, who was 6'5" tall, was already known to him. Roger was full of muscles. But, the other guy, who also was a black, was at least 2 inches taller than him, and was more muscular. They were walking briskly in the room like two hungry lions. Watching their prey, they grinned from ear to ear.

    Roger said, "Hello Rajan! Meet my friend Rod. He hails from Jamaica. He is also a gay like me. Today, we would like to explore your body. I don't know whether you have any experience of homosexual sex, but I believe that you are going to love it. We would have liked to use lubes, but unfortunately, by the Joker's order, we can't. So, initially you maybe subjected to intense pain, as you know we are big, really big. But, I assure you if you bear the pain for a few minutes, there would be no problem. Also, you must have seen the hospital. They will make you fit within a day. So, let's begin the fun."

    ____________________________________________

    The word that instantaneously came in Archana's mind when she looked at the room for the first time was queer. The person who escorted her had already left the room leaving her locked inside the strange sight which resembled like a scientific laboratory to Archana. There were quite a few instruments in the room that Archana had never seen in her entire life.

    Archana looked into the room very carefully. The room was not very big; Archana estimated that it would be around 15'×15'. There were only two doors in the room and no windows. The door she entered through was locked from outside within few seconds after her arrival, and the other one at the opposite side was a different one. It was locked from inside with a giant sized lock.

    There was a rectangular wooden table at the centre of the room, but strangely there was not a single chair to sit. There were two strange instruments on the table that Archana tried extremely hard to understand what they were. Both the instruments were made of glass, she thought. The first instrument had two orifices. The left was a very narrow one with a diameter of hardly 5 mm. The right one was slightly wider. It had a diameter of around 2.5 cm.

    Archana noted that there was a scale like thing inside the apparatus. But it was not like the scale we see in shops. The two sides of the scales were shaped like a bowl. The left bowl was empty. Archana's eyes lit up suddenly to notice that the right bowl had a giant sized key on it. It was hanging low due to its weight.

    That must be the key of the giant lock of the other door, Archana guessed. Archana wished she could dig her hand inside the barrel and get the key. But, the diameter seemed too narrow to put her hand inside. She quickly looked to the other instrument. There were few openings on the walls of the instrument which were connected with small pipes with the first instrumeent. There was a very small, around 0.1 mm in diameter, orifice on the top. The isntrument contained a blue coloured gas. Archana could not understand what it was!

    Suddenly, there was that creepy sound that Archana had been aghast to hear. She quickly craned her neck to find that there was a 15' LCD screen attached to the north wall of the room. The despicable face of the Joker appeared on the screen. In a business like manner he said,

    "The way you are looking, it seemed that you are an aspiring detective! I would like to congratulate you on your future profession, but I cannot do that at the moment. Because, you are going to face your toughest test right now. If you survive the test, you will move to the last round.

    As you might have understood, the door through which you entered the room has been permanently locked for you. The instrument which is on the right hand side of you contains a deadly gas, which is already emanating at a very a slow rate. You would realize its effect in less than 5 minutes from now. In the next 2 minutes the gas will cross your tolerable limit, and your body will react accordingly. First, you will feel nausea and dizziness. In the next 2 minutes, you will feel being asphyxiated, and I am afraid dear, in the next minute, you will die.

    I am sure you don't want to die, as you desperately crave to see your family as a free person. Therefore, listen very carefully. When I finish talking, you will have only 5 minutes to complete the task. What is the task? The task is to escape from this room. How do you escape? As I said, the door through which you entered has been permanently locked. But, at the opposite side you can find another door, which is locked from this side. That's your escape route. If that's a good news, I have got a bad news for ya. The key to the lock is placed inside the instrument to your left. However, getting the key from the instrument is not a child's work.

    To be continued on Monday night

    Episode 33


    You can see that you can't enter more than two fingers of yours. If you think that you can break the glass instrument and get the keys, I am afraid, you are sadly mistaken. These two isntruments have been interconnected with glass pipes. With every jerk to the left one, the very fragile joints on the right will open up, leading to leaking of the gas at a rapid rate, and you will die in few seconds. Some portion of the apparatus on the right is made up of a very fragile material and the pressure of the gas is maintained in such a way that if you try to stop the leakage by putting pressure on its orifice, the vulnerable parts will break up leading to the leakage at a very rapid rate.

    By now, you must have understood that I am a man of my word. So, don't commit the mistake of trying to break the glass to get the key or don't try to stop the leakage of the deadly gas by putting pressure on the orifice. Many contestants had lost their lives by trying to do that. So, how do you get the key?

    The only way to get the key is to put weight on the left side of the scale to the extent when you will be able to put your two fingers on the right to pick it. But for that you will have to put 750 gm of weight. The weight of the key is only 50 gm, but the scales are unevenly balanced. The diameter of the orifice lets only liquid to be entered. In this room, you will not find a single drop of liquid. So, how do you get it?

    You must get it from your body. But, you can't use your urinary bladder as you know we have made it empty just before entering this room. So, how do you get the liquid? The only answer is blood. You have to donate 750 gm of your blood to the left side of the scale to get the key. But, you cannot waste time in doing so.

    2 minute is over. You will feel the effect of the gas right now. Your task begins now. Good luck!"

    The monitor went blank. Thanks to the input from the Joker, Archana was mentally prepared for the job. She had no hesitation in hurting herself, but she was quite perplexed how to do that! Extracting almost 1 kg of blood in 4 minutes, leaving 1 minute to unlock and escape from the room, seemed to be an unattainable job. Archana looked frantically to see if she could find a sharp object inside the room. But there seemed to be none, as there was nothing in the room except the table and the the bizarre instruments. Besides the tv monitor, there was a digital clock on the walls. But, they were at such a great height that it was beyond Archana's reach. The edges of the table were not sharp enough to draw blood from her hand. Archana's nails were clipped just a day before by the Joker's men.

    Recognising the value of each second, Archana tried to rend her left forearm with her clipped nails. But to her utter disappointment, only a few droplets of blood oozed out from her forearm. There was a digital clock on top of a wall, which was going backwards. It started at 5-00. Now, Archana looked quickly to see that 30 second had already elapsed. Now, Archana could feel the effect of the gas. Her head had started spinning, the food she ate at night was trying to come out of her mouth.

    Archana tried harder to cut her skin of her forearm. But, her effotrs seemed to be going in vain, as she could not extract even 20 gm of blood. But, another valuable 20 second had passed. Archana could not withhold vomiting anymore. She bent down holding her stomach, and puked nonstop for another 30 seconds. Now, she felt worse. She thought that someone was choking her throat. She understood that she was losing the battle. She couldn't see any light regarding how to escape from this impenetrable misery. The effect of the deadly gas was clearly seen in not only her body, but also in her psyche. She had already crouched on the barren floor with drooping shoulder and head.

    >>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<

    Rajan had been originally from village, where he had spent the first 18 years of his life. Village boys are supposed to be very hardy, they are supposed to take a lot of pain as they have to work very hard for living. Unfortunately, Rajan hadn't acquired that painstaking ability during that period.

    Rajan had been cursing the Joker since his arrival here. But, he didn't realise that the Joker had tried extremely hard to prepare him for the tests during his brief stay here. It was not as if Rajan hadn't improved. He could clearly feel that his soft body was no longer soft. He never had any muscles in his body. He could not run for more than 5 minutes at a go. But, now he could run nonstop for an hour. When he touched his own shoulder, sometimes, he himself got surprised to notice the hardness! During his bathing time, he got impressed by his newly formed biceps, triceps, deltoid and pectoral mussels.


    But when the time for the test came, nothing worked for Rajan. He didn't hit them, but he tried to wiggle. Rajan had a belief that after toiling hard here, he had gathered quite a bit of strength. But, he was utterly surprised when Rod held his two arms from behind. Did he have iron fists? Rajan could not move an inch. When he tried to twist his body, he received a slap in his face from Rod. Rajan could never imagine in his wild dreams that a slap could be so forceful! He saw stars in his eyes, and almost lost consciousness. At that moment, Roger said, "Sorry mate! My friend is a little ruthless. The more you protest, his brutality will increase further.

    The impact of the slap was so forceful that Rajan stopped offering any resistance for few moments. The two gay men merrily undressed him and used him as sex object for one hour. They were not allowed to use any lubricant by the order of the Joker, but they were kind enough to use plenty of saliva as a replacement of lubricant. But, saliva is no alternative of lubricant. So, Rajan was subjected to extreme torture for full 60 minutes. Fortunately, no visceral injury occued to him. He could not bear the pain for long and became unconscious after half an hour. But, the two monsters showed no mercy on him, and used his unconscious body with glee for the entire time.

    When Rajan opened his eyes, he found himself lying on a bed in a place which was not unfamiliar to him. It was same hospital where he had been admitted when he was hurt from the fall during his failed effort to escape from this place. After a few moments, Rajan remembered what happened to him. Rajan got scared, there must have been grave injuries in his internal bodyparts. Rajan quickly inspected himself to find that he was given saline. Rajan tried to sit up. He was apprehensive that it would be very painful to do that. But, when he found no pain, he was slightly amazed.

    "Amazing! Ain't it?" Ranjan seemed to have appeared in the room from no where with a cheerful expression on his face.

    Unfortunately, Rajan could not bring the same expression and say anything reciprocal in response. In fact, without his knowledge his jaws stiffened.

    "Relax man! I am not here to fight. In fact, I am here to congratulate you on your success to pass the third test. Well done man!"

    Rajan didn't know what to say. He was apprehensive of the damages done to his inner parts. But, he felt ashamed to ask about that.

    But, the guy Ranjan seemed to be a thought-reader. He said,

    "Nothing has happened to you mate, nothing! You are as healthy as you were before the experience. Well, first time gay-sex might be painful to some people, but you know what? This is the world's best nursing home! World's best medicos work here and the medicines are simply out of the world. We took just 24 hours to heal you completely. You will have to spend another 24 hour here, and you will be released after that."

    "Really, are you kidding?" Who would know better than Rajan that what happened to him?

    "You will know yourself man after tomorrow when you will walk into your normal life. However mate, if that's a good news, I have got a bad news for you, too."

    The hard life and the horrible experiences that Rajan had received here had made his mind strong enough to shot back,

    "I am all ears. Tell me what is next?"
