Chapter 6 – Want To Be or Not to Be

The Story Continues from Chapter 5 – The View of The Unknown Written by Gowthama Rajavelu.

Priya could not digest the fact that her mother actually disappeared into thin air. It somehow did not leave a feeling of pleasantness in her and now everybody around her felt eerie.
