The Deadly Challenge – Beware

The Blue Whale Challenge

35023544451_95b5dcddef_o

A twenty-two-year-old created a game,

With an entire group under a pen name,

Started from Russia and spread to regions as an online game,

And now it has shaken the entire world with horror,

Making all the mom’s and dad’s to entirely fear.

He called it the Blue whale hiding the atrocities within,

Making the pre teens and teens go addicted further resulting in death

Taking lives of not just one but a few and many of hundredths,

The Blue Whale gives a set of challenge that lasts for 50 days,

The participant is told to complete a particular horrible task each day,

Starting from carving the hand with a razor blade,

To jumping off a high building or a cliff and meeting the final stage,

Parents please beware of your children or to no avail,

Remember this isn’t a joke of calling oneself #IAmAWhale.

An eager pair of eyes was fixed on him, waiting to hear the rest of the story.
Her mother grabbed the cup of coffee that was placed on the coffee table and was about to sip when Gerard spoke again.
“Can I marry your daughter?” the words came, slow, steady and crystal clear.
In that very instant all the actions that were being performed stopped and he could hear his own heart beat echoing in the room. He remained calm though he was complete chaos inside. Their eyes met for a brief moment and he could see the shock in her eyes as she turned towards her mother. Her mother placed the coffee cup on the table and looked at Gerard. Seconds passed and his heart started beating even crazier. No words were exchanged and he waited impatiently.

She turned towards her husband with a blank expression and said
“Can I have a word with you?” and her husband nodded a yes in return. They both got up and left towards the kitchen.
Minutes passed which seemed like hours and he sat there clutching his fist and looking at the love of his life, while she looked at the kitchen and then at him. Occasionally their eyes met and in that brief moment so much of emotions were exchanged.

After about 5 minutes they walked back to the living room and seeing them Gerard stood up.
“This is absurd,” her mother told looking directly at him.
“I know, I’m … I’m sorry, I certainly didn’t know…” He dragged and then continued
“It was only the moment she opened the door I knew but I’m not regretting it” he finished saying while all eyes were transfixed on him.
Her mother went near him “open your mouth” she said, with a confused expression he looked at all three of them.
“Go on,” told her father looking at Gerard. His eyes were fixed on her has he slowly opened his mouth with hesitation. Her mom immediately pushed a sweet into his mouth and smiled at him.
“But you just said this is absurd,” he asked half chewing on the sweet with a cocky grin.
“Yeah…Strange it is, because I’ve secretly wished the story would end up something like this” she said beaming at him. He gave her a broad grin in return, happiness couldn’t be contained and they exchanged a giggle together.
“Welcome to the family!” Her mom said hugging him and her dad gave him a pat on the shoulder.
“Excuse me! Do I even get to say” She asked looking at all three of them
“No” came the reply in unison and followed by laughter.
“You will when I oppose,” she said in a sarcastic tone.

He moved closer to her and she began moving backward. Her parents left giving them a little privacy.
“Look into my eyes,” he said as she kept looking at the floor. Slowly she raised her eyes; he was so close she could hardly breathe
“Will you reject me?” he asked with a sly smile.
“That’s not what I meant,” she said fumbling for words
“Well that’s good enough then,” He said walking away.

She couldn’t sleep at that night. She woke up early and got ready to leave for work. She wore a peach colored kurta matching it with an aqua colored bottom. She looked stunning in every turn she took. With the eagerness of seeing him she headed to the station. Before getting down from the auto she checked herself one last time in the rear mirror and with a smile, she left to catch her 8:40 train.

The whistling sound of the train was heard while her heart made a swift somersault. The train stopped and she got in and instantly she turned the other side of the divider. He stood there wearing a white linen shirt pairing it with a dark blue jean. He was extremely handsome and for some strange reason, she was not able to take her eyes off him. Seeing her he started moving closer to the divider while she stood farther away from it. In one swift action, he leaped to the other side of the compartment. Few of the women were staring at him, while some were uttering words like “What the hell is happening here?”

Her eyes were glued to him, wondering what he is up to.
“Excuse me, ladies, There is something I want to convey to a person right here and I want to do it in your presence,” He told them whilst curiosity filled the air. He walked towards her with his eyes fixed on hers and shuffled his way to kneel in front of her. The whole crowd waited in enticement to know what would happen next. She was shocked and it was unexpected but she knew her answer even before he could ask.
“Will you…” he started “have a cup of coffee with me…?” he paused; a tricky smile passed on his lips looking at her confused expression and after a few seconds passed, he continued “From now to a world of eternity” saying he pulled out the ring from his jean pocket while the crowd gasped.

She looked at him in bewilderment as her cheeks turned red. Seconds passed and the crowd started shouting “Say yes”. She slowly smiled at him and then showed him her hand. The crowd cheered as he put the ring on her finger.  Strangers congratulated them as their station arrived and they got down.

she suddenly stopped walking, turned and looked at him.
“What gave you the confidence that I wouldn’t reject,” she asked raising an eyebrow at him.

He smiled as he answered “I saw it in your eyes” and in return, she gave him the most beautiful smile for the rest of her life… ❤ ❤ ❤

***THE END***

You may not know where the track ends, but persevere and you shall see…

After a hell of a weekend, it was Monday again. She got dressed with such difficulty since she had no intention to go to work.
“There’s no more difficult transition than Sunday to Monday,” She said aloud while heading downstairs to the kitchen. Hearing it her mom gave her a witty smile.
“Why, don’t you think so?” She asked seeing her smile.
“Well, probably” saying her mom shrugged.
“Seems like you don’t,” she told looking at her mom again.
“Well, maybe” she gestured with a shrug
“Ah! I think I’ll just leave” she headed towards the door while her mom kept laughing.

She reached her station in time to catch her 8:40 train. Looking at the long queue waiting for the same train was tiring. The sound of the whistle was heard and the train was fast approaching raising their heart beats. With great difficulty, she squeezed herself in. Occasionally the thought about him crossed though the train was fully packed and having no chance for her to find him amidst that crowd she did give a try.

Her efforts went futile. She got down in her station and headed to her office. It is going to be a long day, she thought, seeing the amount of work that had come in. With a strong cup of coffee, she started her work. Time flew by with meetings, assigning work and phone calls. It was 6 pm when she finally finished her work and got up to leave.
“Fancy a cup of coffee” a voice came in her direction. She looked up to find a colleague looking down at her cubicle, who has tried to flirt with her ever since she came.
“Nope, I’ve got to head home,” she said picking her bag and walking to the exit.
“Maybe one day you will,” he said howling behind her.
“Never,” she said silently and headed straight out

After a 40 minutes travel, she finally reached home only to find the door locked. She unlocked the door and stepped inside. The table was readily made, juice and supper waiting for her. She smiled and took the glass of juice and sipped, there was a small sticky note attached to the bottom of the glass.
“We will be home late don’t wait up and have your supper – love Mom <3”
She read it and as she was finishing up the glass of juice the door bell rang. With the glass in one hand and mouth full of juice she opened the door
The moment she opened the door she was shocked for there he stood the guy from the train giving her the same expression as well.

Seeing her with wide eyes and mouth full of juice he controlled his laugh and she swallowed immediately. Before they would even speak her parents walked in.
“Hey Gerard!” said her mom casually waving at him while her dad walked behind her
“Hi aunty!” he replied back
“You guys know each other?” she asked her mom in bewilderment
“Of course,” turning towards Gerard she said “Ignore her; she must have mistaken you for a stranger”.

He looked at her and suppressed a smile while she thought “Not really”.
All four of them walked in, their shoulders brushed and he turned and looked at her in the eye.
Only she knew how powerful the way he looked was, as it weakened her legs instantly. She closed the door and followed them.

Looking at the confused expression on his daughter’s face her dad told: “They are coffee buddies working in the same office, remember the new photographer who mom was praising all about?”
“Yeah”
“That’s him, a nice young man though,” her father told as they bought coffee and snacks along to the living room where Gerard and her mom were seated.
“So Gerard, what happened did you talk to her?” her mother asked, with so much of curiosity.
He looked at her as her confusion only began to deepen. Her mom’s gaze followed his and seeing her daughter she spoke,
“So there is this girl he sees’s on the train, she must be really beautiful for stealing such a handsome young man’s heart” and continued speaking further
“He was going to talk to her today,” her mom said her attention going back to Gerard again.
She was hardly able to breathe hearing what her mother just said
“So did you?” her mother probed again
“I was about to,” he said looking at her mom and then at her
“So you found her address?” her mom asked him
“Not at first but eventually it happened” he answered.

Her mom was smiling away at him while she stood there unable to speak or move.
“I was about to talk to her but her parents walked in” he continued
“Gosh! That’s a bad luck” her mom replied hearing him and a silent smile passed between him and her.
“So did you tell them? Did they ask?” her mom went on with questions
“I’m about to,” he said
