I will see you with the other Committee members said the teacher while leaving the class. I said a polite okay with a good fake simle. I gave out a sigh of relief while placing my on table and holding my head with my hands. These people will grill me I said while keeping my eyes gued to bench . David kept his hand on me and said “Bro what’s happening? Is everything okay? Why do you have to appear before the discipline committee?”. I lifted my head looked at him and said “Bro I didn’t attend college for a month”. I laughed as I completed and seeing me laughing he also started to laugh. I controlled myself and started to speak again. ” Bro let everything be, but I am just am worried about my post of Literature club” I fell silent as I completed ! David kept his hand on my shoulder and said “What if it goes , you don’t need any post to prove yourself “. I looked at him started to explain him that this is the only post juniors hold and I in no case want it to let go so easily. David looks at me with his eyes eager know to more. I continued telling him how hard seniors tried to get this post but I turned their game on them. And you know what it costed me fighting for this post. While he kept being silent I turned to him and asked him to listen why this post is so important to me . You know David soon after I won the post of President, a person who’s a student of this same collage got kidnapped. Oh yes a student of this collage was kidnapped but we still don’t know who did it , the police is still investigating the matter, David said in confused tone . David I will tell you everything just listen to me I said to David keeping my hand on his shoulder. Soon After I won the post he took my leave and left because he had to attend a family function but he never reached that function. David looks at me as I continued. As he reached at the main gate of college a black secrapio stopped infrount of him and two masked men got down and gave him a hit on his head and made him unconscious and then got him in the car and took him to an unknown place. You know David which place was that and who that place belongs to? He became much curious and asked Who ? I whispered in his ear “It belongs to President of the college and those men were send by him”. David looks at me with eyes wide open. I action him to clam down so that people around us doesn’t get to know that we are talking about something anything Important. David I need your help a female classmate approaches him with a smile. “I will get to you later” David replied without looking at her. We sat silent till she let and the David asked me how am I so sure that it’s our collage President who did it . To confirm him I told him that the person who they had kidnapped wasn’t blindfold and he had seen the photos of the party which was organised by our collage President when he won the post again. You were Invited David asked me with a smile. I said yes and we both laughed. Why don’t you report this to police David said getting to serious mood again. I told Daivd that it isn’t that easy to act against him; his father is a DGP and his Uncle a minster. David looks at me with wide open eyes and says “A really powerful family he belongs to “. Hmm i replied. How did the person escape after being kidnapped, Daivd asked. The story didn’t complete listen what happened later. As they took him to the farmhouses, I got a call from an unknown call and as I received it a heavy voice spoke “Listen Mr President, your campaigner is here with us , If you want him alive resign and don’t contest again.
I was sitting in canteen and was numb in my chair and all the celebrations around me was nothing to me, as the person who did everything for me , to make sure that I win has been kidnapped because of me. I was lost in the pool of thoughts the caller spoke again “Don’t you dare going to police or you loose your campaigner”. His speaking again got me back to reality. I stood up and left the canteen and spoke “Please don’t do anything to him, I will submit my resignation tomorrow and will mention it being my personal reason doing it” . Good the caller said and disconnected the call. It happened too quick, David said with a sign of fear. Yes David I was confused and worried. I said looking at David. What happened next David asked? As the call disconnected I went to canteen again and our collage President came to me and wished me luck and left. What a shameless person is he Daivd said with anger. I didn’t answer him and continued. As was leaving he got a call , he received it and smiled and at me. I got to know that it’s he who is behind all this and it’s pointless to go to police. I left the college, my driver was waiting for me outside, I got into the car worried about the kidnapped guy . I wanted to go police but I couldn’t as I knew I couldn’t get any help and that will surely put him in trouble. While I was thinking all this I reached home. I got down from the car and ran to my room, closed the door and started crying. Meanwhile my phone buzzed and it was some random guy messaging and tell me a best of luck for my future. I replied him with thank you and went to take a bath. As soon as i came out of bathroom my phone buzzed and it was our collage President calling. I picked up the call and said a polite hello and said a hello as well and told me that he has organized a party at his farm house and I am also invented. I wanted to say a no but my mind though something else and I confirmed to him that I am coming. I will send you the address on the WhatsApp. I disconnected the call and soon there was a whatsapp message from college President sending me his address. I kept my phone on charging and went to comb my hair and to see what to fit in for a party. I have to be very well dressed after all I took away the post they held for 4 long years. I opened my cupboard and took out a new party wear 3 piece suit , the one gifted by Haider on my birthday. I asked our helper to irony it. I had to be there at 10 and it was 6 only so I decided to scroll through Twitter. As I opened it, it was flooded with the congratulation messages and news handlines which clearly had words saying “Junior Takes away strong hold post of seniors”. This headline touched my heart and took a screenshot of it. While I was going though Twitter my helper came with the Suit and hanged it and left. After a while I checked the time and It was 7:00pm , so I got up and changed and left. The place was at 2 hours distance from my place and that road has a lot of traffic. I left at 7:15 pm and was there at 9:45 pm. I wasn’t the first one to arrive; there were already lots of people. I met him and he introduced me to his friends. I asked him were the washroom is , he actioned me the way and while I was walking towards the washroom I heard a voice that I have heard before coming from a room as I opened the door , i was numb to see the person who campaigned for me there. I went to him picked him up and took him out from a widow and got him to my car. He was still unconscious, I went back inside and told our collage President that i will be back in 20 minutes. I drove to my friend’s home and kept him there and went back to party. Why did you go back David asked me with a confused look? I did it just to act normal, I replied with a smile. Did you tell him that you know everything, Daivd asked. No, He just knows that Raqif won’t give up on literature club till he’s alive, I replied keeping smile. How he knows that, David asks as teacher entered the class. I will tell you after so long this class, I replied. Okay he said while we stood up to greet the teacher. Oh Raqif nice to see you back the teacher said while asking us to sit down. I smiled and said a thank you and he started with his lecture.
