Was she then capable of murder? Not the hot blooded kind, done with a weapon of proximity. But one months in the making, with painstaking plans and simple alibis.
She didn't do it, even though there were times when she wanted nothing more than to strangle Frankie with her bare hands. But someone had. Someone had killed him, and suddenly all her secrets were safe.
Will Ferguson's voice seemed to come out of the mist, she could see his lips moving, but the words were whispers, and all she could hear was the rain bucketing down.
"So, as I was sayin' Frankie bet on the Germany Brazil match in the 2014 World Cup. The odds were impossible. 4000 to 1 for a 7-1 Germany win, and yet on the 8th of July, the impossible did in fact, happen."
Suddenly, the full impact of what Will was telling her hit her, with a visceral force.
"But.. but Frankie died on the 14th. Six days later."
"He won five thousand quid in that match. The money was supposed to be sent by the 15th. And he was dead by then. Too much of a coincidence, aye?"
She repeated, almost to herself. "Too much of a coincidence."
The money had come, in fact. And she and Finn had managed to pay off a mortgage, and life had gone on. Until Will Ferguson came, and started asking questions of the most uncomfortable kind.
She had never truly thought it was true, but now she was forced to confront a distinctly distasteful possibility.
Was Finn capable of murder? The cold blooded kind?
Voices need to be heard. Voices need to be answered. You can't just crush those voices. For how long can you do that? Don't be in a state of misconceptions. Do you think that the world is illiterate? Isn't the almighty watching? Do you really have an idea what does it feel to live a life full of insecurities and terror ? Murder of the fundamental right of a nation is equal to the murder of whole nation. Why does belonging to a particular religion makes those people less suitable for this nation? Why can't they get equal rights? Isn't this called a mockery of constitution? Who gave you the right to alter the constitution? Did you really study our constitution? How beautifullly it was framed. No one had a problem with that. Why don't you hear the cries of millions of your citizens? Do you have any kind of allergy with the term secularism? Are you born to rule or dictate your hate mongering policies? Why did you disturb the harmony among us? Do you think that we will start hating each other. Absolutely not, the bond of our brotherhood has become stronger than before. You don't even consider the words of students who are the building blocks for the future of the nation. Instead you try to curb their voices by forcing your people. Do you really think this policy of yours is gonna work? We love this nation. We will do anything possible for the betterment of this nation. The youth want development, good infrastructure, better schools and colleges, job opportunities etc. Is it necessary to fight for religious dominance? Does that make any sense?
The pic below was the first page of our textbook when we were in school. But as we have grown up we gradually forgot the fundamentals of our constitution. The time has come for us to be united to save these fundamentals. Because if it's too late you might not be able to see a secular nation like ours. It's name for being secular will be vanished forever from the world map. We need to prove that pen is actually mightier than sword.
I didn't use the name of any religion, any country, any political party, politician. I didn't use any foul language. It's just a piece of writing rather a heart cry. I hope this doesn't breach the guidelines of mirakee
