The Mystery of the Eyes-Short Story(Chapter 1)
The Mystery Of The Eyes
The evening sky was painted in glamorous purple hue. The punctual sun in its endeavour of hiding it’s face behind the exuberance of the dense, purple sky after routinely accomplishing it’s hectic job of scorching the earth whole day. The splendid , angry kite perched on a high chimney vindictively scanning the streets. The tree nests once again occupied by their inhabitants. The hopeless rovers have all returned home. The streets were barren , deserted reverberating in gloomy silence.
The serene evening ..barren streets.
I stood in my balcony gazing dreamily at the sky , plunged in appraisal of the beauty of serene ambience. This was the time when I usually nurtured my imaginative powers. I smiled to myself gazing at the beautiful evening scenery, not unaware of the fact that my youth and elegance was an integral part of it.
Then suddenly my persistent , self devised day dream was distracted by the noisy arrival of a slender ,gorgeous black car in front of my building. Out of the car emerged two strangers. I leaned forwards to look closely with mixed feeing of ebullience and uncertainty.
I was standing in the balcony viewing the beautiful evening.
A black car arrived in front of my building
One of the strangers was a tall, sturdy , young man dressed in black suit and glistening black, polished shoes. His rough and tough stature went hand in hand with his rowdy, discontented face. He looked up and scanned our building scrupiously.
On the other hand, the other stranger was a pretty , timid , young girl not more than twenty years of age. Dressed in gaudy pink , flimsy chiffon gown she looked divinely beautiful. She looked down modestly with her shimmering , golden curls partially veiling her fair, glowing face.
But the most remarkably awkward , unmatched entity in her attire was the black goggles which covered her eyes.
Out of the car , emerged two strangers, one young man and the other a pretty girl in black goggles.
