Sarah was near the riverbank, all this was too much for anyone to comprehend. She went to the church, in hope, seeking answers. She felt nothing, and at the same time, the hurricane inside her couldn't even leave her in ruins. She was wondering. Her mission was just to get granny back. Why then did she find her past self, why she collided with his father, with the angel who took her away, with the roads she danced on.
' how's this right, All this is unequal. You do nothing bad to good ones, what bad was done by me? '
' was it necessary to give me this mission. I have done so many mistakes. I know. But this time, it's not something you'd ignore. You would've known everything. Why? Why did I, Granny, Jay, my father, everyone... have to go through this. '
'I love you. You're the creator. I'll take the punishment instead. I don't need to be reincarnated. One life is enough. But please make the lives of others better. Don't punish Granny. Please. Don't do all this to Jay. Please, God. I'm praying to you. Please accept my prayers.'
After letting it all out, she left the church and found Jay at the stairs.
'Why are you here, I thought you were an atheist?' she asked trying to mask her insides.
' I - I was looking for you Janv... Sarah'. Jay spoke.
Sarah noticed that he already knew it all. She wanted to open up, but opening up comes with prices to pay. She choose to stay silent and both of them started walking out. The weight of the silence was getting heavier. After all this, Jay thought this time he shouldn't let the time decide anything he must do something. And he spoke. ' I know, you know everything. I'm sorry. But, you shouldn't stay here. You must leave this place. ' Sarah was confused she asked him ' can you help me one last time, can you help me visit my dad. Will you take care of him? He's growing old.' ' don't worry, he's a man of knowledge. He's the best man here. I will make sure he's fine. ' he smiled.
It was getting dark, Granny was waiting for them at home. As they opened the gate they found her on the bench in the garden waiting. She ran and hugged Sarah. ' I'm sorry, it's all my fault. Only if I hadn't made a mistake that time, both of your lives would have been different. You would never come across this cruel time.' Sarah tried to wipe Granny's tears, she told her it's okay. And that it wasn't her fault. After consoling each other Granny asked her to get some rest. And Sarah went to rest early in her room. Granny told Jay that she needs to talk to him.
The next day early morning Granny hurried to Jay, ' Jay, Jay Sarah is not in her room.' hearing this Jay was left in utter shock. Thinking where could she go, whether she is fine and all. He was worried but he assured Granny to not worry, ' Don't worry my Granny, she would be outside. Where can she go?' 'No, I'm really worried, I don't have any good thoughts about this. Can you.. can you please go and find her. Please.' she told him softly. ' you don't worry, I promise I'll get her. Okay? ' he tried to calm her as he left the house.
'Where could Sarah be?' The first thing that struck his mind was the spot of accident ten years ago. He rushed there. Sarah wasn't there. The next place he could think of was the place where she as a kid would always go whenever she was sad - the Array land. It was her who loved that place, not Jay.
Jay tried to find her at the Array. But he saw her disappear as soon as his eyes found her. 'Sarah!!' He shouted. There he was reminded of the time of timelapse. 'This can't happen. No. This can't.' He ran out of woods and to the countryside village.
Sarah already had reached that place before Jay's arrival. There was a medium-sized walnut coloured wooden gate, she kept staring at the gate. This was her house. The place she was born in. Tears started flowing through her eyes. A man in his late 60's opened the gate. ' Young girl, what are you doing here. In front of my house. ' the old man spoke. Sarah hurriedly wiped her eyes. 'umm no.. nothing. I... I'm sorry. ' she tried to leave. All emotions were piling up inside her. She wanted to hug her father. But she couldn't reveal her identity. She already knows the price she would've to pay.
' You, young kids these days are impossible. ' The man said. Sarah turned around. ' Fa... Sir. Sir. I'm sorry.'
' come inside, drink some water, you don't seem in a good health child. '
'umm, o..okay sir.' she followed him.
The garden was still the same, as it used to be. She entered the house. And saw her childhood pictures, on the walls. She took a good look at the pictures. The man noticed her as he got the water.
' she's my daughter, she's amazing. ' he... her father said.
' oh, she's. She's. ' she nodded as she drank a sip of water.
' Janvi was a super sweet child.' he continued. Listening to her name after so many years from her father. Sarah was filled with a cyclone of joy. She just couldn't help anymore. She left the house. And ran to the river bed and cried out, letting it all out was not possible for her, neither was accepting it.
The old man was left in confusion. He thought to himself that this generation is weird, if his daughter was here she would've cracked up because of the young lady.
Jay reached the house and knocked. The old man went outside to answer the door. And asked him what could he do for him. Jay inquired about Sarah.
' oh, the crying girl.' The old man exclaimed.
' She was here but just left without saying a thank you or even a word. ' The old man told him.
