Knellss.....

               She looked out of her bedside window but found only darkness.Even crickets seemed to be silent. She turned on her side and pulled out the ivory handle of shelf drawer. It was already kept there,ready to be taken out.Beula held the shining knife against her pale face. The silver blade reflected her pale face and shining blonde....  
              Jo was still on his bed, snoozing alarm for the fourth time.Keeping his eyes fixed on ceiling,he tried to remember the previous days incidents.Beula's teary eyes created an unknown fear inside him. Sarah was too sensitive to bear beula's harsh words.She was left in aghast.Without uttering another single word, she left his apartment, yesterday.He tried to contact her many times but all he could hear was her answering machine prompting to leave a message. You could never imagine the agony i feel now, he yelled at himself. Thinking all these, he got up to get ready to find sarah.He locked his apartment and pushed himself into driving seat of his Armanda. Without a second thought, he drove to sarah's villa, the Lotus. He found miranda, but she had no idea where her roommate was. Jo was totally unaware of the whereabouts of sarah.Puzzled, he drove without even noticing the locations. 
               Beula and Jo were the most fantastic couples one could ever find.Friends from fifth grade onward, they found out themselves to be each other's true soul mate. They considered themselves to be inseparable by any force.Sarah was Jo were working in same firm.She was a very bold,talented girl in her late twenties.She expressed incomparable courage and determination.They were good friends,from the very first day itself. Ricky and Sarah were dating for past six months and Ricky met  Sarah's parents recently to discuss his proposal. Things were flowing smoothly, until Sarah fell unconscious at their workplace.Jo took her to nearby clinic.There he tried to contact Ricky, but all he could hear was a lady repeatedly informing of unknown coverage area. Jo was too tensed and he did not even remember to inform Beula. After a long period of tense and anxiety, he was given her medical report,which clearly stated a malignant growth inside her brain, in chronic stage,with maximum life span of one week.He stared at the paper pieces,unable to believe. Doctor informed her the situation.She was dumb throughout their journey back.Jo too couldn't utter a word.She kept staring through glass pane. Jo had no idea what she was thinking right then nor how to console her. To his surprise, Sarah was too bold to face the situation. Sarah was sure of her destiny but she didn't wanted others sorrow and sympathy.She made Jo promise her not to reveal anything to others and Jo kept his word. Sarah started avoiding Ricky in all means and was spending more time with Jo.This made Beula lost her reins of her mind. 
              Armanda came to a halt at Beula' s residence.He found himself staring to huge teak door. Ringing the brass colored bell twice, he stood leaning to the white round pillar at the corner.Jo had no idea what to tell her.He heard the creaking sound behind.With blank mind, stretched open on face, he slowly turned to face her. He couldn't believe the sight he saw before his eyes.At the door, stood Sarah, with a pale smile on her face. Behind her, Jo saw Beula, with tears in eyes. Sarah smiled at the couple and walked along the narrow road.A girl who loved to be loved... who loved to dream...who loved to live.....Maple leaves shed down, paved way for her....May her soul rest in peace....
