A Web Of Fate

                                                                                        Chapter 5
                                        Read  the previous part of the story here.

Cyrus curiously reaches for his mobile phone as it beeps; hoping it could be a reply from, Jennifer, the girl he admires so much. He ecstatically opens the message desiring for a positive response. "Very smart!", smilingly he  mutters to himself. Then quickly sliding his fingers across the swiftkey, he texts her.
Jennifer, who is just out of the wash room of her suite, patting her face dry, looks at her beeping mobile. After closing the door behind and rubbing her feet dry on the mat she approaches the phone and reads the message-'Crosswords? Riddles? They are not my cup of tea. But, I can't say no to you. And...and... the poor struggler, sure deserves a rendezvous with the lady, after solving the riddle.:) So...done?:)'
Jennifer,without a second thought, who was more interested in solving it, texts him back, 'Done!'
Her mobile on the bed beeps shortly.She quickly picks it up and reads the reply from, Cyrus-'Come on then! Send it fast! I can not wait more!'
"Crazy guy",nodding her head, she says to herself. She does not find it hard, as it is very close to her heart;having read it many a times, the words of the letter are soon texted to, Cyrus:

“Time is supreme power, Love is ultimate weakness…
Human chasing power, seldom values emotional wealth!
Money may be aim for many, does that repay for broken promises and unfulfilled commitments?
I, in the crowd of many, is lonely inside…
I, in the search of truth, haven’t lived lie?
Lie, colourless-rude and brutal…
I have been a living lie… since long…
I have been a lie…
In pursue of love and happiness, I have been a lie!”

She gazes through the window of her room with an interrogative thought process,"What would be his reaction to this?Does he know about this letter!?Why was he mentioned in the other letter?Who is Shekhar?Does he know him?Will I find answers to all my questions?"
“Oh!Tara,  I am so glad to have  employees like you!”, saying this, Tarun moves  forward and offers a seat for her. “We want to have a talk with you”, the boss says with a big broad smile on his face. The smile on his face is not the one that used to be before.It all seems so artificial to her.  “How conniving people can be!?”, she thinks and takes her seat.
“Tara you seem so tired ; you have been working so hard.Why don’t to take a long, paid  leave? We only offer it to a few and you are a lucky one!”
Tara thinks this is what her, and her family wants at this crucial time! Without a second thought  she agrees and moves out of the cabin, where she was  suffocating. She heads to her workplace thinking, the time and relaxation  might give her strength in taking the right decision.
