So here is a story today…
4 friends – Mr. A, Mr. B, Mr. C, and Miss. D – have been staying in a confinement for years. No one knows for how long. Mr. A is a musician and a dancer. Mr. B joins him sometimes with no specific skill of his own. Mr. C is a doctor and Miss. D is one of the prettiest girls in the town. Their daily routine is something like this.
- They wake up in the morning
- Have their meals
- Then they go to sleep again.
- In the evening they have some visitors, who entertain them sometimes and they entertain them more often.
This is the routine for them day after day, week after week and month after month.
Soon Mr. B’s birthday comes and he tells Mr. A that he wants to explore the world and go out. He is convinced that he does not belong there. Mr. A does not know any life outside so he tells Mr. B that this is their destiny and that they should be happy where they are. With a heavy heart, Mr. B cuts the cake and then becomes very sad. It goes into solitude and does not want to speak to anyone.
In the night everyone goes to sleep. However, Mr. C wakes in the middle of the night to respond to nature’s call. To his surprise, he does not find Mr. B in his room. So he immediately alerts the rest of the gang.
Very soon, they all start searching for him and they realize that Mr. B may have gone towards the harbor to explore another country. Mr. A, Mr. C, and Miss D are able to catch hold of Mr. B while he is on his way to the harbor. They think they should not go back to the confinement. But soon the authorities come and take hold of them.
Soon they realize that they are onto a journey to a place unknown on a ship. There they are rescued by some of their own friends who pull them out of the ship. They start their return journey to the confinement, as they have nowhere else to go. Their friends arrange a chartered plane for them.
However, somewhere over Africa, their plan hits a snag. The aircraft starts to tailspin. Mr. A, Mr. B and Mr. C are very terrified. Will they survive or not. Miss D, on the other hand, is very relaxed is in a deep sleep with her eyes hidden behind an eyelid cover. She also doesnt seem to hear the noise.
Fearing what happens next, Mr. C confesses his love to Miss D. However, she is still not awake.
All three friends are now worried. Will they survive? They stare at the cockpit with the hope that the captain will announce something.
The captain lifts the in-flight communication phone with the speaker on. And he starts.
‘Dear Passengers, I have some good news. But I also have some bad news.’
All three friends are eagerly waiting for the next part of the captain’s announcement.
