While Tara briefly told Jenny about her stint as a Media Professional in one of the most influential Media Houses of the Nation, Jenny introduced to her how she had embarked on a journey, to create for herself, a distinct identity in the world of "The Ones With The Lens In Hand."
How he'd refused to believe that an innocent animal had been beheaded, and planted in his room.
How he'd suspected ruffians and the ganja-smokers and opium-eaters of Pahar Ganj, behind an inhumane and sick joke and defied all certainty and reality behind the Killing, the Blood, and the Stench.
Also, how he'd been disturbed by the recurrence of the event. How he'd been disoriented and lost all faith in himself over the last Eight weeks.
And, how he could not even muster courage to inform Tara, let alone informing Jenny at first! :(
They decided that they would first have to solve the riddle behind those eight pieces of paper.
How they'd have to request Cyrus to strain his memory and recount any unusual proceedings he'd observed on other days, apart from Mondays alone.
From Tuesday to Sunday, through the entire past weeks.
And, how they'd have to involve the Police and the Media, if they were indeed able to figure out the involvement of some Bigwigs behind all the mess.
His scream was laced with despair and helplessness.
And, the ladies knew that the situation had worsened.
While Tara had laid Cyrus to sleep an hour back, singing to him, like she sang lullabies to little Roohi, in order to divert his attention from the stress, tension and a state of self - pity, he'd surrounded himself with, she failed to understand what had happened! :o
Considering the mysterious series of events, even hoping for the better wouldn't have helped.
They failed to understand how Cyrus lay on the floor instead of the bed.
The glass of the window opening to balcony had been shattered.
Probably hit by a heavy object.
He also had scratches on his arms and neck!
Probably, he'd resisted and retaliated to...
An Attempt To Murder! :o
The scene suggested a vain attempt to separate it intact, from the hook, and the attempt had failed miserably.
Jenny hoped and prayed for Cyrus's condition to improve.
Doctors opined that he would recuperate soon, since not much blood had been lost and he'd been attended to, in time.
That was a Silver Lining in the Grey Cloud, for now. :)
