When the darkness cleared for the second time, I was in my Dad’s car, which was presumably speeding towards a hospital. It took the whole day for the many different kinds of tests to be performed. The results, which a very puzzled doctor told my Dad, were baffling. There was nothing wrong with me that could cause me to pass out. Of course I knew the reason I blacked out but how in the world could I explain my so called power to a doctor? The old woman's words came back to me again and again...About how my powers would grow and eventually drive me crazy...Or make me slip into some sort of coma...39Please respect copyright.PENANABwekBJDiZY

I was dead tired that evening, my head feeling like it would explode. For no other reason than to calm myself, I took a walk to the park.39Please respect copyright.PENANAyghttlLbo0

​The untended trees and bushes rustled in the wind. Flowers bloomed here and there, scenting the air. I tripped on soda cans and paper plates god knows how many times before finally sitting down on a dusty old bench. I closed my eyes and took several deep breaths. Slowly, my headache started to subside.39Please respect copyright.PENANAWHJuwQART0

I jumped on hearing the voice, wondering who on earth had wandered into the deserted park. Inspector Vikram was already apologizing for startling me by the time I greeted him. He looked odd in his casual clothes.39Please respect copyright.PENANAJkh01cK4TF

“Are you talking a walk too?” I asked. He shook his head. I thought he looked rather miserable.39Please respect copyright.PENANA5C0CH8GDSB
He sat beside me without answering the question. Twice he looked at me as if he wanted to tell me something but didn’t.39Please respect copyright.PENANAtBWKBYXm2R

“Do you know what day today is?” He asked me finally. “Did Tony…”39Please respect copyright.PENANAsFusicBYQt

I twitched uneasily in my seat, realizing what he was talking about. Clara…The name sent a chill down my spine.39Please respect copyright.PENANAT45mKwHnCh

“He was my best friend. He could have told me…” The Inspector said rather wistfully. “He…”39Please respect copyright.PENANABP7GmcnRep
I didn’t need any special power to read the sadness in his eyes. What could I say to him? I thought for a while, trying hard to find something comforting. Nothing. Everything I came up in my head sounded so hollow and useless.39Please respect copyright.PENANAp7uuuf1bCD

“This same day, many years ago…He married a wretched thief’s daughter the day he was supposed to marry my sister. I…I haven’t…”  He paused, wiping the tears from his eyes.  “Ask your father about it, won’t you? Ask him about the abominable way he broke a poor girl’s heart.”39Please respect copyright.PENANAn0JvG6H3XV

I tried to speak but he cut me off. “She ran away from home that day. I haven’t seen her for 18 years.”39Please respect copyright.PENANAwcHfCkviUT
