He squeezed her breasts, spanked her buttocks red, kissed her cheeks, and sucked her nipples wet. Kalwant Kaur started to boil like a hot pot on a blazing stove. But in spite of all that foreplay Eesher Singh could not get it up.

Like a skilled wrestler, he used all the tricks in the book but none worked. Kalwant Kaur, who was brimming with sexual intensity, was getting irritated with his unnecessary moves. Just throw the trump card. He loosened his grip and fell next to Kalwant Kaur panting. His forehead was sweating bullets. Kalwant Kaur tried very hard to get it up for him but to no avail.

Disappointed and infuriated, Kalwant Kaur got off the bed, picked the chador hanging on the nail on the wall and wrapped herself.

Kalwant Kaur was steaming. Is there another woman? Now, swear to Waheguru. Kalwant Kaur went berserk.

She picked up the dagger from the floor, removed its cover like a banana-peel, and stabbed Eesher Singh in the neck. In a frenzy, Kalwant Kaur kept stabbing him and cursing the other woman. He had deep sadness in his voice. Kalwant Kaur pulled back.

He looked at Kalwant Kaur with the mixed feeling of gratitude and protest. Your mother? He tasted it and his whole body shivered. He touched his neck, felt the blood and smiled. Eesher Singh smiled again underneath his blood-filled mustache.

When the riot broke out in the city, like everyone else I also participated. I gave you the loot but did not tell you one thing.

Kalwant Kaur had no feelings for him and paid no attention to his suffering. I killed six of them, with the same dagger you stabbed me with. There was a beautiful girl in the house. I took her with me.

On the way…what was I saying…oh, yes…on the way, near the river, I lay her down by the bushes. First I thought deal the cards. Eesher Singh opened his tired and sleepy eyes and looked at Kalwant Kaur whose whole body was trembling. His hand was colder than ice. Many of the passengers were killed on the way, many were injured and a few were missing. When Sirajuddin opened his eyes the next morning, he found himself lying on the cold ground of a refugee camp. There was a seething crowd of men, women and children all around him.

Bewildered by it all, he lay staring at the dusty sky for a long time. There was a lot of noise in the camp, but old Sirajuddin was deaf to it. Anyone who saw him, would have assumed that he was in deep and agonised thought about something.

His mind, however, was blank. Sirajuddin lay gazing absent-mindedly at the dusty sky, till he suddenly caught sight of the sun. He woke up with a start. A nightmarish vision rose before his eyes — flames, loot… people running… a station… firing… darkness and Sakina. Overcome by fear and anxiety, he began searching for Sakina in the crowd like a demented person.

There was an uproar all around — some of the refugees were searching for their children, others for their mothers; some for their wives and others for their daughters.

Dejected and tired, Sirajuddin sat down, and tried to recall exactly where and how he had lost Sakina. After that his mind went blank.

She had been killed before his very eyes — but where was Sakina? As soon as he remembered that, he put his hand in his coat pocket and pulled it out.
