The Geek and The Ghost -7

This story is based on some true events, however it has been fictionalized and all persons appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
thud dud thud dud thud dud thud dud…………………He was running very fast.
uh huf huf uh huf huf uh………………He was gasping  heavily.
It was a long and lonely highway.It was dark and the road was wet as if it had rained sometime before.
It was DJ who was running.Running away from the world…. the world which is “full of practicality” Running away from the so called “reality”……As he ran, he could see images of his life passing him, his family , his home, his home town…his school…. his teachers…his first friends…the weird eyed watchman… his classmates…his friends…the temple where he got lost….the small hill he first climbed…..He kept running and the  images kept passing on as if displayed on the stores of windows…the people were waving at him…some calling him…some smiling at him…some yelling at him..some mocking at him….he kept running…..
He was running from them…but actually he wanted to run away from him…his life ..his world ..….he had been trying to escape this “reality” but he couldn’t…..
DJ saw a light up ahead in the road he was running….he kept running towards it as it appeared to come nearer to him. He kept running…he could see faces again…faces he would never ever forget….faces of people who love him…care about him..faces of people who showed him the world…people who showed what friendship really is…people who saved him…he kept running.
The light grew closer…interestingly the light  was getting dimmer as he got close to it…. 
….people who bullied him..people who taunted him..people who hated him…people who laughed at him…people who made him cry …people who made him laugh……people who gave him peace….but he didn’t stop….he kept running.
And then he approached the light… he could see the source of light… there was a face too…a face so bright…it was her face….the face that took his breath away…the face that made him speechless…..
DJ has this problem …he keeps running away from his life …even from others who love and care about him….he just wants to run away…not to be ‘tangled’ in any emotional web….but this face stopped him…her face so bright which was the source of the light…
He stopped running…he kept staring at her face….she wasn’t looking at him..but somewhere else….DJ approached her slowly…suddenly she turned and started walking swiftly in the other direction….he started to walk fast…she started to run…he started to run….she kept running… he was closing in on her….he kept running….
She seemed to slow down…he ran even more faster…..suddenly she stopped…and turned back…
DJ couldn’t stop …he ran towards her ….then he felt something different…he felt that he entered into someplace …a vacuum….there was no surface beneath him..it was as if he was suspended in space..she was floating …smiling at him…he gasped..he couldn’t breathe…she floated closer with her arms towards him…DJ extended his arms too…they were close to a connection……
zzzzoooooooooopppppp……It was a sudden pull… a gravity pull…he was falling…..he could see the steep rocks in the sea…he was going to crash……
AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGGG…………………..

DJ WOKE UP…… he was gasping…his forehead was sweating……he checked the time 2.45 am
He had slept at 12.30 only… “not even 3 hours” he muttered…..DJ got up from his bed…he cannot go back to sleep now.He washed his face and looked in the mirror and wondered how long this will go on..Its been 3 years since he first saw her…his first love…She stole his heart…he didn’t bother..She broke his heart ..he wasn’t surprised…She took away his sleep and from that day he regrets for having seen her.
DJ was hearing depressing songs to ease the pain….LP’s Numb…"I’ve bcom so numb i cant feel u there”..Somewhere I belong …“I wanna heal i wanna feel..i wanna let go of this pain held so long” ..
It was 3.am ..DJ logged on the net..Kevin was singing ‘Great Escape’ in the headphones…
“I was unhappy for so long,
So many times I walked away.
Think I was searching for something,
Not knowing what I had to face.
Until I found…..”
DING!!!!!  DJ was startled by the sound as it blared into his ears….
DG:Hellos
DJ (what the hell…os is this??)
DJ:hi
DG: nt slpn?
DJ: no yaar.. woke up jus now..
DG: same here…cold still nt lettng me slp.wats wid u..y wok up?
