THE GET TOGETHER by Praptui Gupta
“Mom are you ready?” I asked.
“Yes dear, let’s go” she replied.
Today my mom and I are very excited. Today we are going to meet with our father after a long time. I can’t really explain how happy and excited I am. After a lot of struggle and patience, we are getting to meet him. But the sad part is the meeting period is very short, just 10 minutes.
On our way, I was thinking what questions I will be asking him. There are so many but I can’t ask all of them. We reached the place after some time. Mr. Morgan was waiting for us. He was the medium through which we are going to talk with him.
He was seeing us in a very strange manner as if he hasn’t seen people like us before. Yes, I admit we are different because we are new to this place but yet we look like human beings.
“Good morning Mrs. Evans, I was just waiting for you and your son,” he said to us.
“Is everything ready? We can’t wait to meet him; hope you can understand” my mom said to him.
“Yes. The whole process is to be of 20 minutes and you can talk to him for about 10 minutes, not more than that, otherwise, it can be risky for me” he said.
Though we were disappointed upon hearing the time limit, we nodded.
Then he took us inside a room. It was a dark room, in fact very dark.
Okay, let me clear the fact. We are going to do planchette. This is the only method and medium of our contact with him.
My mom and I haven’t talked with him since the day we two died in a road accident a year ago but my father survived!!!!
It’s really a special day for both of us.
