Nostalgia – The Past

Kiara was walking very carefully, escaping from the firing around her. As she was stepping towards a door, she didn’t know a pair of eyes followed her. Among all terrorists, one stopped firing.

The gunman had released his finger on the trigger of his machine gun. He was looking and watching her across the bullet firing path.

“Hey what are you looking at? Why did you stop firing? Come on fire. Kill them all.” His mate nudged him from the shoulder. That makes his finger reflexed and hit the trigger. The bullet got shot. He can’t stop it but only watched the bullet hit that girl’s shoulder.

He screamed “Noooo”.

“Go Away” He pushed back his mate and slapped.


“Kiara, oh god, what did you do. See its bleeding.” Mihir worriedly said.

“Oh come on Mihir, it is just a minor cut.”

“You just don’t understand.” Mihir murmured.


She is just a few meters away from the door. There were few terrorists who have tied four people in a line against the wall just near the entrance.

“Are they going to shoot them.” She thought.

“Aah…” She moaned. Amidst the firing, a bullet just passed through her leg.

That caught the attention of terrorists and they dragged her too in that line.

The gunman’s fellow goes inside the room from the balcony. His eyes started searching for that girl. He got his sight within the line of people and the terrorist pointing a gun to her. Finger on the trigger. He shoots that terrorist. She quickly ran inside, not even looking at him.

“Kiaraaaa..” He goes inside and runs towards the stairs

Bruised face. Blood flowing from right shoulder. Left leg injured. She was bleeding badly. She was walking lamely. Pressing her right shoulder with the left hand. Somehow, she managed to climb stairs.

She slowly unlocks the room and gets inside.

“You need not worry. I will get you out from here”. She said to the hostages calming them down.

“Get in one corner, you all are dead now” A terrorist slams the door open.

“dut..dut..dut”…Machine gun sound.

He fell. Everyone stared in surprise. Someone had shot him from behind.

“Come with me” He ordered Kiara.

“Set them free, safely. Every one of them”

“Kia..” He stopped saying further.

“Come this way, follow me.” He instructed them.

He took them all to the back side of the building. There was a door.

“Go out from here and don’t make any sound. This will lead you outside the building”.

He turns around and comes inside. She followed him.

“Mihir..Mihir..wait, talk to me” He doesn’t stop, even after her pleading.

“Goo.. go away. It’s not safe for you here. You are already…inj… “ He wanted to stop and hold her in his arms, but he instructed her to go.

Machine gun fired from somewhere behind her..rat-a-tat..dut..dut..dut*

“kiaaraaaa” he turned and ran towards her. She falls and he holds her

“no, no..noooo…hang on, you’ll be alright”

“I am sorry Mihir, I love you”. And she breathed her last in his arms, smiling.
