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. The warm lighting she saw earlier in the beings now seemed scary and weird. Why would her mother show up to disappear later? Is this her mind playing games or did this really happen? Priya wondered as she turned around.
Deb walked over to her in slow strides and pulled her back to her room. She said “Get going girl, your coronation is out to happen now! Everyone is waiting and each minute is precious for us”. Priya could neither enjoy the feeling of becoming a “Queen” nor get over the awkward feeling of being among those with whom she could not relate much. Egged by curiosity, Priya asked Deb, “I am yet to understand why I am here and how this throne belongs to me?” Deb with an awkward smirk said “Belong? This is the biggest joke I have heard recently. It is yours only for a day and this is how we celebrate a new addition in our family”. Deb added “Everything you see here is mere illusion, happiness and celebration inclusive. Get ready now it is getting late”.
