In quest of discovering the truth behind her sleep deprived son Mrs. Sharma seeks access into his world through his diary. As she advances, she is transcended into the dark captivity of his encounters. 

Distraught by love and betrayal, Rohan seeks an escape from reality. He craved for a few moments of bliss, without knowing the price he would have to pay for it. Little does he realize his vulnerability would render him an easy prey to the demon of deceit. 

“Who will it be? You or your beautiful sister?”, the words haunted him as he trudged with trembling legs towards his destiny.

This is how you write Mystery. Good imagery (felt like I was watching a movie), nice buildup and a perfect ending. Hats off!

Nicely written story! It covers issues faced by many and highlights the need to tackle them. I was particularly impressed by the ending. Would definitely recommend this short and interesting read.

The pace was phenomenal-couldn't put down the book until I finished it. A very relatable and realistic rendition about one's inner battles and its consequences.

A writer to closely follow for more such renditions.

The narrative is simplistic yet impactful, taking you through a roller-coaster of emotions and bringing out the dark side of the society and it's effects on the innocent youth.
