After a few minutes, two boys returned back to the same coffee shop.
One of them asked the shop owner, “Where is our Coffee?”
The shop owner said, “I gave it to someone else, if you want I will prepare fresh coffee
The boy replied, “Sir, we have added tablet in our coffee”
Shop owner asked, “What? Tablet? Why did you add?”
The boy said, “We were having headache, so we added citizine tablets in our coffee”
The shop owner said, “I did not see you adding the tablet”
The boy said, “You might have turned other side”
The shop owner said,” what can I do? Two people drank those coffees and left my shop
The boy said, “They may get good sleep tonight”
The shop owner said,”mhmmm…a pill causing sleep
The boys had coffee and left the place.
Till 10.30 p.m., Pugazhendhi and Prabhu were roaming in chengalpattu
Prabhu asked, “why am I feeling drowsy?”
Pugazhendhi said, “I too feel the same
Prabhu said, “We slept throughout the day”
Pugazhendhi said,”mmm…ok you ride towards Palayanoor”
Prabhu started to ride the bike towards Palayanoor.
It was 10.45 when they reached the entry point of the bridge across Palar river.
They crossed the bridge in a slow manner.
The bridge got isolated and there was no traffic at that time
At the exit point, there was some oil spill on the road.
Prabhu rode his bike over the oil spill
The tyres of the bike underwent skidding and Prabhu lost his control.
The bike went towards the left edge of the highway embankment.
They fell from the embankment top to the toe of the embankment.
The bike got sliding down through the slope of the embankment.
Pugazhendhi asked, “What happened man?”
Prabhu said, “it was an oil spill”
Pugazhendhi said, “I am having muscular cramps
Prabhu said, “Me too, I am not able to lift my body”
Pugazhendhi said,” I am getting a sleep”
Prabhu said, “I too have the same feel”
Both of them got sleep within few minutes.
They were sleeping in the midst of bushes.
Since they both were sleeping and there were no lights, they were not noticed by anyone.
The bike was also lying near them.
The time was moving in a slow manner
Their sleep was not able to get disturbed by the vehicles which were moving on the top of the road embankment.
The time was around 11.45 p.m.
A car of an old Tata sumo model came moved through the road which was at the base of the embankment.
The car stopped near the place where Pugazhendhi and Prabhu were lying.
Pugazhendhi and Prabhu were lying within the bushes, and they were not visible to the people in that car.
Nobody got down from the car.
A guy started to talk,”Hey Senthil, Tonight will be ours”
Senthil said, “Yes, we need to do it Arumugam”
Arumugam asked, “we are four people, is that enough?”
Senthil said, “Yes, it is enough”
Arumugam asked, “Kumar and Ravi will be behind us right?”
Senthil said, “Yes, they will be behind us”
Arumugam said, “And I will knock the door”
Senthil said, “Yes and when Murugesan comes out, I will slash him with my sickle”
Arumugam said, “What if there are people in his house with sickle?”
Senthil said, “we will all get armed with sickles”
Arumugam asked, “Where will we park the car?”
Senthil said, “we will enter Meyyur and take a remote road which I will show you”
Senthil added, “In that route we will park the car at a distance of 500m before Murugesan’s house”
Arumugam said,”Oh! From there are we going by walk?”
Senthil said, “Yes”
Pugazhendhi was listening to this conversation from the bushes in a silent manner.
His sleep got disturbed when they parked the car and started to talk.
