PART 27 :
THE SAVIOUR ON EARTH – FATHER
The Bus finally arrived at the Forest Resort area, all the kids were over joyed, after unpacking and the initial round of lectures, the teachers had advised them time and again to not explore the places around without guidance. After they all ahd their snacks, the teachers spilt the kids in six groups of 15 students each, each of them had to collect various leaves and flowers, the students were given 1 hour as time and which ever team won would be the winner of first round of game. Each group 3 teachers were assigned and now the batch of students parted for their games to begin. The kids were so excited and kept questioning the teachers and jumping about, Maahi with her friends were very careful throughout, they almost stuck with their teachers and were scared to loiter far.
Maan had his breakasft , and then packed up his tent to place it elsewhere deep into the forests, he kept walking for hours trying to navigate further, his compass direction had told him he was still heading west, and there was more to go in if he wanted to indulge in wildlife hunting, the trees started growing thicker and the light rays felt meager now…
Maahi had suddenly realized that her water bottle had slipped off her hands, she signaled her friends to slow down and said them she will be back cos she could see her bottle lying down just 3 big rocks behind, they agreed to slow down pace and she started walking backwards to get her bottle, when she got it and turned to her shock she couldn’t see any signs of life, she panicked and tears were threatening to fall, she tried to look around but to her disappointment she couldn’t see a soul around. Tears of fear and dsiappointment finally made way. She tried to walk back he path for any trials, but she just couldn’t sight anyone , she kept walking walking aimlessly with the hopes of meeting someone or the other camping groups, and she was crying non stop and still picking up flowers and leaves to add up for their team, she wanted to do her bit.
Maan had finally sensed movements across his area, he was sure of some wildlife involvement s per his maps, those were the wolves and Bear regions, He loaded his gun and started aiming at the area of noises, then he took out his Binoculars and aimed them to get one of his shocks, there was a small girl who seemed to have lost path and kept wandering, oblivious to the fact that to the other side of her path lay bunch of Bears, he focused on the fauna and to his surprise , there were no more species in the area except for the bears, he started almost running in the direction of his eyesight to protect the girl from collinding with a pack of Bears, when he neard the Bears side all he could see , were the nocturnal animals peacefully sleeping but his bad luck the girl had tripped over the rock and fell back rolling across the lands and finally went and being dumped straight on top of one of the bear, the bear roared in his sleep and moved his body and opened his eyes, the human blood smell awoke his senses and before he could act Maan’s jaw dropped it was Maahi, the very girl whom he had met at school he started shivering at the realisation, she was trapped .
Maahi’s wailing had reached a new height, Maan was wondering if she keeps shoutng at this range, she might awaken the other Bears too, clenching his teeth, he closed his eyes, glanced up a short prayer, a first in his lifetime, and wishing from heavens that Either Maahi or the Bear don’t move he finally focused and without delay left the trigger button, the sound cracked up and before he could asses he saw her lying flat over the Bear. Still, not moving, His Heart panicked and he took gentle steps forward.
