A dream job...the dreadful 28th day

Back to Day 28th, it’s 10:30, but office still not opening. Even the security guard has gone somewhere. Everybody starting to smell something fishy but no one willing to think negative, after all everyone has deposited 50,000 rupees with the company. All the new joinees are still meandering meaninglessly in the community center. At 11:30, Mr. Nagarajan arrives at the office, just gives some busy excuses to everyone and asks everyone to be on their seats. Everyone takes a deep breath and says okay…no problem. Everything is okay. At 2:30, Mr. Nagarajan calls everyone for a meeting and says that the MD has gone to Chennai for some business purposes and our training manager has also accompanied him will be back by the 7th of the next month. So, that’s the end of the day 28th. Rishabh’s sixth sense is knocking at his brain and says wait…there is more to come in the coming few days. Be ready for something you don’t want to think about. Still, Rishabh pushes his sixth sense back down the last corner of the brain and gives himself a comforting pat on his own shoulder that don’t worry…everything is okay…nothing to think about…things will get back to normal.
