Bela decides to repair the broken time machine that she found in her basement to go meet her father who went missing years ago. Reading time: 21.515 minutes. T ime is mysterious. It both creates and destroys things. Sometimes I feel that time is the real god. Time has created this universe, time governs it and, time will end it. Other times, I just wonder what created time? Who or what can be so powerful, can have the authority and wisdom to create such mysteriously beautiful thing. Sometimes I just wonder… Chapter One The Mysterious Disappearance of My Father My father went missing right before I was born. Nobody could ever find him. I don’t have any memory of the time, how could I? But I heard a lot of things while growing up. My neighbours would talk for years. They said he ran on my mother. A friend of my mother’s helped her until I was one year old. I vaguely remember her. Kids in my school taunted me for my entire school life. Bullies just teased me while beating

An alien lands in ancient Egypt and walks across the middle east following a signal, looking for someone. Who is he looking for? Why is that so important to him? Reading time: 16.01 minutes. Chapter One Walking W alking. That’s one of the few things I remembered. I had been walking ever since I had landed on this planet. I didn't know how long I had been walking for, didn’t remember how far I had come. I just remembered; walking. I remembered the first time my feet touched the ground. The dry and hot sand burned my soles. I remembered when my lungs filled with this foreign air and the sun shone on my head. It was so familiar with my planet, it almost felt like I was back home. The first thing I noticed that was different from our planet was the cycle of the day and night. The day lasted only for a few hours. I got scared at first, thought I'd have to hunt for the food for a long time but then just a few hours later the sun rose again. My first task was to find

Preeti has come to spend the weekend with her cousin in the notorious 'Crime City' which is now even more dangerous because someone is killing people who step out of their homes at night like the people of the mafia. Who is he? What are his motives? Does he kill anyone who steps out at night? Reading time: 32.88 minutes. Chapter 1 Crime City C rime City. That’s what they called her. Even though she had a real name but nobody remembered it, not even the ones who’s ancestors founded the City. The name was the important part because the founders were all criminals, drug lords, and mafia. They wanted a place where they can camouflage their businesses and the name was the first step. A few decades ago, some of the most notorious crime families of different cities came together at this place which was just a small town and a pier. There was no trace of any human habitat up to three hundred miles in any of the three directions, the fourth one was the sea. They set up their h

When a serial killer breaks into a house then begins the chase of cat and mouse, the game of a predator and the prey. Reading time: 14.47 minutes. Chapter 1 The Chances T here was something eerie about that evening. The wind was witnessing the gloom that covered the city. Street lights were trying to light up every dark corner as if they were afraid that if they didn’t, something sinister might develop. A stray dog was lurking in the street, looking for something to eat, it stopped to smell a piece of garbage beside the pedestrian path. It was trying to decide if the piece was edible just when its eyes lit up, and its head jerked up in response to the sudden development. I turned on the light of the living room and looked outside the window at the stray dog, who stared at me for a second and then went along to do whatever it was doing. I looked across the street and the hazy sky. It was so calm that one wouldn’t suspect a thing before stepping out of his home. I
