The Black Curtain chapter XXVII

“Have you seen the letter? Marco asked me. “I am seeing it for the past three hours.” Reasha replied. “Great, what do you know?” He was smoking again. “This is an eight page story. First page is written to you. Next two pages is written to me. Fourth page onwards is the poetry stretching to the eighth page. I have read my part thrice. I … Continue reading The Black Curtain chapter XXVII

The Black Curtain chapter XXVI

Marco folded the yellow paper before presenting it to me on a tray made of very fine porcelain I could see. “Here.” He looked at it like it was a cooked delicacy to be savoured immensely. There was total absence of everything called life in that moment of rush, rush of adrenaline to the brain, to the nape of my neck. Everything was on fire … Continue reading The Black Curtain chapter XXVI

The Black Curtain chapter XXV

“Hey there! How does it work?” I was astounded by it’s mammoth size. At least a million gym sized lockers packed around a space equal to the court in which you could play long tennis, stuffed one above the other, all brown with a blotch. “You shall see.” Xi nodded. She hit an old fashioned lever and the whole system came alive, drumbling, rumbling, as … Continue reading The Black Curtain chapter XXV

The Black Curtain chapter XXIV

“So, will you go around? Or shall, I bring it to you?” Marco was still the tough guy. He had not changed much from the percussions that life had juggled him with, Marco was still strong. “I can come around.” I had felt perhaps a slight guilt hitting an old man, even though practically I did not see him making an effort to help me … Continue reading The Black Curtain chapter XXIV

The Black Curtain chapter XXIII

“Where is that poem? I am amazed my father left back a poem and such great minds cannot solve it.” Since, the time I had picked up Marco life was not within my own control, it was sweeping past me at a rhythm not my own. Rocky seemed to immensely enjoy but Mic was equally sad and remorseful, worrying, scared perhaps. A beefy muscle and … Continue reading The Black Curtain chapter XXIII

The Black Curtain chapter XXII

“My dad never showed it to me.” “In fact I think otherwise, he might have.” Lawrence had perhaps no idea or maybe all of it. Marco was perhaps not feeling that bad now. He stood up, the shield was removed, We later knew it was a laser beam channel which activated as soon as anybody entered the circle, visibly there was no way to get … Continue reading The Black Curtain chapter XXII

The Black Curtain chapter XXI

“Run.” Rocky put us in a mode where our minds had already began running whereas our bodies were still deciding if to follow the mind. “Don’t. It’s impenetrable.” Lawrence was no longer sweet honey. His face was contorted and red. “See, we don’t want you guys to unnecessarily trap us, we can always make a deal.” I was looking for an alternative. “Yes, please listen … Continue reading The Black Curtain chapter XXI

The Black Curtain Chapter XX

The Black Curtain Series “Do you believe in God, Ms.Romanikoff?” Lawrence seemed to be an ardent follower, So was Xi though the masters differed. “All or none.” I replied wryly. “All or none?” Lawrence was counting the options in his head looking to his upper left. “The law. Have you heard about the principle? The All or none law or principle.” I chided, slightly uncomfortable … Continue reading The Black Curtain Chapter XX
