“Don’t you think you read too much”, Maya asked Viraj endearingly. “I don’t know, maybe”, he replied with a smile.
“It’s good to read but do not forget about your real life too, sometimes we get so much involved in fantasy that we forget about the reality”, Maya caressed his cheek as she stood up to leave the asylum. She was already late for work.
As she was walking towards the exit she received a text from Viraj which said, “You read books too, so does that mean I’m your imagination or…. *wink “. Something clicked inside her as she remembered that Viraj never had a mobile phone. She ran back to the room where she had just left him.
She entered the room and found it empty. As she ran out of the room she found a nurse just outside whom she asked frantically about Viraj who was just in there a few moments back. The nurse looked at her and said, “There had been no patient admitted in this room since last 6 years, except you.”
“I… I came here today to admit my boyfriend… What rubbish are you saying?”, Maya said clenching her jaws. Suddenly she saw three ward boys walking towards her.
“No stop. I am not a patient… I can prove it”, She again said and took out her phone to show his picture but neither there was any picture of Viraj nor his message. Everything was blank.
