Continued from previous episode 9…….

It is then that JR came around

Silently the wrist tape

gave way by inches

and before long

JR had his wrists free.

Two men

were now celebrating

the capture of JR

and were taking long swigs

from the casks,that had come out.

It is then that scene was spoiled

there was a vehicle following behind

it was trying silent moves

and JR guessed

they were his hounds

on a swift move.

But that may be or may not be the case

and JR thought he should not be late;

two men were so much drunk by now

that they did not hear or notice

the vehicle shadowing behind.

JR grew bold

and with free hands worked fast

and had his torso,chest and legs all free

all scraped with that German edge

that was hidden inside nails

for occasions like that, JR

felt his lapel

from inside

and took out, what looked

like a straight and slim iron rod,

but it was not that.

It was world’s tiniest firearm

made up of a special alloy

and worked best

at point blanks.

JR still lay

rather still

and took the revolver

in his hands.

He weighed his pain

and measured

if he would be

fast enough

to do the ask,

that too at both men

or they would give him

back his death.

At least one of them could have

reacted and JR would be putty,

as JR might have shot first.

Risk was huge

and the pain was more

blood was allover

from his fresh wound

and smelled rather

rather rather very bad.

Both men were

now drunk and heaving

in front. Driver had turned on

the throttle

and the vehicle was speeding


It is then that JR took a quick

dash only to look up

at the vehicle behind

and to his shock

JR found

that vehicle was not his

and it was same to the one

in which he was abducted

and their support was around.

JR never panicked

but bought risks

that was his routine

here he was

measuring if he would be quick enough

to get by men one foot ahead

now he decided

that he would cover that foot

and then miles

negotiating that

shadowing vehicle behind.

A risk which only

one in million

might have accepted

but JR just did that.

His fingers

firmed on revolver lock

and JR sat

with an agility

of an injured

cat he sat straight in the back seat

and before the men had

a chance to even look back

he had shot them both,

in the back of their heads,

point blank ensuring

that they were dead.

Bullets shot past heads and emerged from eyes

and both men slumped ahead

but then the driver

slumped on the car wheel

and the horn blared


JR tried to spring

to front

to control wheel

but could not.

His shoulder


and pain doubled;



on road mad

going left

where a cliff

with 5000 feet down

stared just meters ahead.

By the time JR

could shift over

to front

the vehicle

had covered

those meters

between life and death

and the hurtled down

reaching almighty god.

It toppled Topsy turvy

down the cliff

like a toy vehicle

with JR in it

now certainly dead.
