Four friends were travelling by car to see the festive lights. 

"Whatever happened to Laila?"

"Don't know. I haven't seen her in the last week in class."

"I was inviting her for today's outing, but my calls and messages went unanswered."

Laila was their fun-loving classmate.

The fourth friend seated on the passenger seat, was silent. 

The events of the last week had played many times in his mind. 

Things would have been different if only...

"All okay, Vicky?"

Vicky wanted to say everything was fine trying to sound normal.

But, he froze seeing Laila's reflection in the rear-view mirror.

What do you think happened to Laila?

It's the festive season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance.

Stay safe. Take care.

  5. Only Vickie knows for sure. Or maybe it's Omicron that's got her. Nicely done.

  6. Or maybe the other 3 are pulling a prank on Vicky?

  7. I'm not sure what happened right then, but it sounds a bit wierd!

  8. What has he done? What have they done? There are so many reasons that could cause her absence, let's hope it isn't murder...
