He stopped in front of a cell, his destination. He slid his identity card in, and walked in the dark and small prison. The room was so small that you could touch both the opposite walls, one with your hand and one with your feet. But no one was inside this room. The prison was empty, but a glass jar filled with water, kept right in the centre of the room.
“Long time no see, huh?” Estern said, standing in front of the glass jar. “I guess we met yesterday only.”
Estern spoke in an empty room. The moment he picked up the jar, a sound of chains scratching the walls echoed in the room. And suddenly, a visible figure came out of dark corner and evolved into a man out of thin air. “Don’t you dare touch her!” The man who was tied in the chains shouted at Estern.
“No touching, huh? Fine.” said Estern, and dropped the glass jar. The glass jar shattered into pieces and the water was spilled all over the ground. But suddenly, the water moved, and collected itself. All the water beads that fell on the ground joined themselves and got accumulated in a single piece. The water rose to the height of Estern and swirled until a girl was standing in front of him.
Estern took out his lighter, even though he never smoked but tools like this came in handy, in the times unexpected.
The girl gritted her teeth at him. “What brought you here?”
“Nothing, just a few questions, actually. You both would like to answer honestly this time, I guess. Tell me about him, your friend who is still running free.” Estern spoke frankly.
“Try us, we’ll not speak a word about him!” said the man who possessed the power of invisibility.
“Then pray to god to give you the strength, to watch your friend evaporate to death” said Estern, clicked his lighter and a flame evolved around it’s tip.
The girl didn’t blink, but her eyes reflected the fear. “Don’t do this to me. You can’t.”
“Try me, I can” Estern said with a smile.
Humans often forget the fact that the thing they love may give them strength, but it will always be their weakness!
