Just as Zain opened his eyes, he saw three doctors around him, and he was laying on the bed in the hospital.
When doctors saw that Zain was gaining consciousness, they helped him to sit and then started asking questions about what happened. But Zain couldn’t reply, and the way he was looking around and acting showed that he was insane.
As there was no physical problem or injury, and it was confirmed that Zain was mad and no one from his family came to get him.
Although the announcement was made in the town that a male body found in forest and if anyone recognizes the body should come to police and Boss of the restaurant came and told the cops that Zain used to live in the house near Forest.
It was daytime, Police went to check the house, but they couldn’t fit anyone or any traces leading to what might could happen, but they didn’t close the case yet as Boss told them that Zain had a sister and mother living with him. Police found that the mother died a few days ago, but his sister was missing.
Her body was neither found in forest nor anywhere around the house.
So they went away, but they wrote about Ebtehal in missing person report and also announced in the town that a female child is missing and whoever finds her bring her to the police station.
On the other side, Zain was discharged from hospital and ordered to shift to a near Asylum (Mental Hospital) in the morning.
[First day in Asylum]
Zain had to share the room with another person; there used to be doctors and nurses patrolling the wards and rooms to check on the patients.
Room was square and it was second last from the end of the whole ward.There was a small window with bars on one side of the wall near the corner as such that at a specific time of the day when the sun was in the line of it, sunlight would come in the room.
Just as Zain entered the room, his roommate was sleeping at one end of the room, so he walked slowly towards the window and sat down facing the corner, and kept his head down even below his shoulder (in a depressed and sad state) and he kept looking at the floor.
Neither did he uttered anything from his mouth nor he moved from that position until it was lunch time, so the nurses came and took Zain and his roommate to the dining hall and after eating they were returned and Zain felt tired, so he went to sleep again near the window, facing the corner.
While his other roommate just sat on the other end of the room busy in his thoughts and kept moving his hands like a lunatic, it seemed like he didn’t care about his new roommate or was curious to know about him in any way.
Sunset was approaching soon, and after sunset, doctors and nurses changed their shift and didn’t care about patrolling the wards that much as most patients tend to sleep at that time.
Just as the sun was set, Zain eyes opened, and in a moment he got up.
His roommate got scared and started to crawl fast towards the opposite corner.
At once Zain got near him and grabbed his neck.
The roommate saw the eyes of Zain were red as blood, and there was a wide and strange smile on his face.
Then Zain started putting his right hand in the mouth of his roommate and going as deep as he could, while his roommate tried to free himself, but he was unable to do so.
Zain kept going deeper and deeper until blood started coming out of the eyes, nose, and mouth of his roommate and he died there at the opposite corner of the room.
Zain threw the body at the corner of the room and started walking towards the opposite wall till he reached the window and,
Then he stood there in a strange way like a dog stands (on four legs), but Zain’s posture was more strange and different than a dog,
Zain’s lower body was standing as a human does on feet, but his upper body was as if bowing down till his hands reached the floor. So he was standing on his hands and feet, and his face was towards the corner of the room.
He kept staring at the corner, and after quite some time in that position, he said his first (meaningful) word after being insane and possessed, and that word was none other than the name of his little sister.
and just as he said that name, he changed his position from standing on hands and feet to laying down (facing towards the corner), and he started shedding tears of blood.
Till sunrise, he kept shedding tears of blood and repeating the name of Ebtehal.
[Second day in Asylum]
Just as the sun rose, he started feeling tired and then he saw his arm and his whole right arm was filled with blood. He got scared and screamed and then got up quickly and turned around.
When Zain turned around, he saw the dead body of his roommate and the horrific image of blood coming from his eyes, nose, mouth and the mouth was still open wide, and it was filled with blood, and also the blood was spread across the floor.
Zain fell and started crawling towards the opposite corner to the dead body and kept screaming and shouting and closed his eyes because of the horrific image of the dead body.
Upon hearing the screaming and shouting , nurses and doctors rushed towards the ward and just as they entered they saw the dead body of one of the inmates, and by the image of the body, all the doctors and nurses started screaming with fear and then guards came in and some of the people took pictures of the body and Zain was shifted to another room.
In the meeting, doctors were confused on how that person could have died. Majority were of the opinion that Zain might have killed him during the night , but they were shocked that how can a human kill another human like that and the person who had died, from his throat to his stomach everything was destroyed and they imagined that Zain might have put his in the dead person mouth and went deep down. But then some of the doctors and nurses of the same ward gave their opinion that Zain looked so quite during the day even at the dining hall. How could he do that?
So it was finally decided to shift Zain to a more restricted ward for extreme lunatics who either try to kill themselves or other people around them, so to control such mad people they are put in straitjacket, and they put a camera over the room of Zain for surveillance and to observe the behavior of Zain.
Zain was shifted to the new room before the sunset and after lunch.
Sun was set now, and doctors and nurses were changing their shift, and no one was paying attention to the screen while one of the nurses was ordered to visit the Zain ward to see if there is something wrong and to cater for worst situation an armed guard also accompanied the nurse.
As soon as Nurse came to Zain’s room, she was standing at the door.
What she saw was so strange, he never saw a human in such a posture (standing on feet and arms), and she got so scared.
Guard took out his gun and started pointed towards Zain.
Same as last night, Zain was looking at the corner standing in that strange position.
The nurse wanted to see what is the problem, so she went in the room. (Guard told her to take care and not go too close)
The nurse only took two steps inside the room, and the next thing she saw was that Zain was standing so close to her (eyes filled with blood and a wide and strange smile on face ) and
She didn’t have the time to react, Zain held her neck by the left hand and did the same with his right hand which he did with the guy he killed last night.
Guard kept shooting at Zain until he was out of bullets (but they were useless on Zain at that time)and then he came in the room to stop Zain but then seeing the guard inside the room, Zain threw the body of the nurse to his left and it was with so strong force that the nurse head hit the wall of the room and her head got opened wide, and her brain came out on the floor.
Zain did the same with the guard and killed him as well.
Then Zain went to the same spot, and he was bleeding because of the bullets, but he felt no pain, so he lay down facing the corner and kept saying one word
He kept shedding tears of blood and repeating the name of Ebtehal.
But because a lot of blood was spilled, he passed out and got unconscious.
Meanwhile, doctors, guards, and nurses all rushed in towards the Zain ward as they heard the shooting and then they screamed while seeing the nurse and her brain out of her head and the dead body of the guard and also Zain laying down unconscious, and there was a lot of blood around him.
Zain was rushed to the hospital emergency.
