My home is only one kilometer or so from school still we reached my home late. At 6:00 pm and by the way school left at 3:30. I was holding a packet of Cheetos in my hand. Raj and Shyam were eating from my packet even though they had one in their hands.
"That was nice, now take this." Shyam mimicked a burp and gave me his unopened packet.
"Oh no, I won't allow you to be the good guy." Raj said also giving me his unopened packet.
I smiled. They were the best thing I had in my life.
"Home sweet Home." Shyam said unlocking my home and entering inside.
Raj followed close behind.
My house is white in color, single floor. 4 rooms, and is pretty much isolated except for a rundown house few feets away where the neighbors who adopted me and left.
"You people do realize that this is my home?" I asked.
"Yes of course, we are entering first so that we can welcome you to your own house properly." Shyam said.
"Welcome master." Raj said bowing.
"Idiots." I muttered smiling.
"Where is the T.V remote?" Raj asked searching for it under the sofa, "No need found it."
He switched on the T.V and simply changed one channel after the other.
Until one news got my eyes glued onto the screen.
The headlines read 'The End'. But before I could read or hear further Raj had again changed the channel.
"Hey change to the previous channel." I said.
"SO now you are suddenly interested in news." Shyam asked coming out of the kitchen with a bottle of coke.
Raj kept the previous channel.
The Indian President was speaking over a mike.
"We have known about this for almost a decade now." He said, "We had informed the President's of other countries about this years ago. We sent men into space to stop it. But our nukes failed us. The asteroid is still heading towards Earth. For the last 50 years we have utilized almost 50 billion rupees in the construction of a space ship that will take the population into space. Our scientists have discovered a planet in the Andromeda Galaxy which resembles Earth. The space ship named Freedom can carry 3 billion of our population. Thousands of helicopters will come to every home and carry the people to the location of the Freedom. Freedom will take off in 3 days. We will pray for the souls of those who cannot reach the Freedom by that time."
The broadcast ended.
"This just came in live from the Rastrapathi Bhavan." The news reporter sitting behind the desk said.
We all looked at each other. The coke fell out of Shyam's hands.
"Is this really Armageddon 2?" Raj asked.
He was not joking. His eyes were dead serious.
"Those idiots of a Government." Raj scowled, "Why didn't they inform us earlier?"
"They said to avoid any riots."I said.
"3 Days." Shyam muttered.
"It is enough for everyone to survive." The Voice said.
"Do you know how huge the thing is?" I asked.
"Go outside." The Voice replied.
"Why?" I asked.
"If you want to see it go outside." The Voice repeated.
