Chuchu helplessly watched Pomi’s arrest with dismay and wet eyes.

The   onlookers moved away from there to see other caged animals and flora and fauna in the zoo.

The guards later moved on to carry out their other duties clearing the place.

Chuchu came out from a slit in the birch tree and tiptoed in Titu’s cage.

Titu was elated to see his friend.   He caressed him with his trunk.

Titu: “How did you get in here Chuchu?”

Pomi: “Its Chuchu only who helped me meet you Titu. If Chuchu didn’t guide me the way, I would have died missing you my baby.”

Chuchu: “It’s your greatness Pomi that you think positively otherwise I hold responsible myself for creating all this mishap for you both.”

Pomi: “Nay, nay Chuchu, please do not curse yourself. Aunt Fox has told me that it was Titu who forced you to provide him a ride in train. It is you who risked life and helped me get to Titu in here.”

“ I love to be with my baby in the cage than to be free without Titu.

It’s better to be in captivity with my child than to live without him. Believe you me, I am very obliged to you and very satisfied here.”

All three stayed very calm for a while then Pomi asked Chuchu to leave.

Pomi: “Chuchu dear you must go as you have a long way to go. Please give our regards to all the animals in the jungle. Tell them we are very happy here and they need not worry for us.”

Chuchu said good-bye to them and getting out of the cage, started towards railway station.

Aunt fox had also moved towards her home after Pomi and Chuchu started for city to meet Titu.

Aunt Fox met ChinChin Monkey and Pita Parrot on the way back home. Pita parrot called out Aunt Fox: “Where are you off to Aunt? Won’t you have chitchat with us for a while?’’

Aunt Fox: “Hey Chuchu have you married or still roaming weirdly and lonely as a cloud?”

ChinChin Monkey and Pita Parrot darted down and sat near Aunt Fox to make out what she had in her Pandora box.

Aunt Fox began to enlighten them with fables of here and there.

She told them about Titu’s ride in a train and his captivity. And also about Pomi that how she got there and now both mother and son are in a zoo.

She was tired of a long journey and   story telling   so she walked towards her warren.

Pita Parrot was fond of spreading rumors.  He at once did justice to his heart’s desire hence the story of Pomi and Titu spread like fire in the jungle.

ChinChin was favorite secret agent of Sher Dil, the King of jungle so he ran fast to tell him before anybody else would.

The King Sher Dil was taken a back, and shocked to hear the news. He was very upset to know that such big incidents happened in his Kingdom and he was unaware of it. He felt disgusted.

He was tense that two precious lives of his governance were in danger. The King scolded ChinChin for his irresponsible conduct.

The king commanded self-conscious ChinChin to inform Sardar Trumpet immediately that the King will pay him a visit soon.

Knowing about the King’s visit, all animals became alert and got on their heels and toes.

Everybody busied themselves in cleaning-up the place.

Sardar Trumpet made a comfortable place for the King on a raised spot under the shade of a huge birch tree.

Aunt Fox as a good host asked Baba Bear and Woo Wolf to arrange, new hunted fresh meat for the King.

An elephant announced the arrival of the King.

All animals present there greeted the king with respect and awe.

The king shared his concern over two   precious endangered lives of   Pomi and her son Titu. He said that if he had the least idea he would have never allowed them to go to the unsafe city of humans.

Sardar Trumpet: “You’re Excellency! I advised Pomi not to go but she did not pay attention to my advice.  Thus I gave in seeing her craving for her missing son.”

King sarcastically roared, “Very well said!  This is nothing but sheer lame excuse.”

The King: “I know that none other than a mother would take such a bold step. But would you be kind enough to explain what kind of a Chief are you of your tribe? Wasn’t it your responsibility to take care of their life? You could have informed me at least if you failed to handle the situation. I would have accompanied   her or sent someone with her.”

The King: “Send Chuchu the rat in, right away.”

Chuchu, who had just returned and was very exhausted after a long journey, went near the King and feebly bowed him.

The king: “Chuchu, you   look dead tired.  Where are you coming from? Then he ordered   the Aunt Fox to feed Chuchu with some sweet corn and maize.

After eating and gaining some strength, Chuchu told the king the entire story again about Pomi and Titu’s imprisonment.

Pomi’s sisters and her friends started to sob after listening to the   painful story.

Trumpet, was a symbol of regret and repent for all the animals present there. He then realized that a stitch in time saves nine.  Beating about the bush was too late then.

“There I saw something!”

He had hardly stepped on the last footstep when he heard a cat’s mew. Ahmed was taken aback to hear the cat’s sound in that chilly night where no living creature breathed. But he had no time to give a thought to that inane creepy cat, so glancing casually and flashing his torch light on the tomcat he headed for the driver. He was only concerned and alarmed of the train being stopped at that place and at that point.

As soon as the guard left, the eerie tomcat flung into the Guard’s room. Though Ashraf Ahmed was not cowardice, moving forward he did feel something icy creeping in his spine. He turned back and flashed his torch at the point where he saw the tomcat, but there was nothing picky he could see.

Ashraf told Sadiq to start the journey again as he has already wasted 10 minutes. He must try to reach the destination on time otherwise he will have his share of music. Both of them boarded the train in their respective rooms. Sadiq felt stupid and angry for what he experienced. He couldn’t understand that what he saw was just an illusion or realism.

On the other hand the passengers were equally curious to know the reason of this redundant stoppage of the train. Some popped out their necks from their windows to see the reason. But it was dark and foggy so none could comprehend.

Some thought burglars broke into the train. Loads of rumors spread among the passengers. One of the passengers who were looking out of the window saw Sadiq Hussein with a torch so thinking it was the guard asked him, “What’s wrong Sir?” Why is the train not moving? Aren’t we getting late? I have to appear for an interview early morning tomorrow. Moreover we can’t see any station close by or any reason of this halt.”  Sadiq Hussein was already troubled so he in a firm and sternly voice asked the passenger to better shut his window. The passenger felt something weird in his tone so instantly he closed his window.

Within no time Sadiq Hussein got on board and accelerating the speed of the train covered time he lost. At last he was able to reach station on exact time.

The moment the train came to a halt, Ashraf Ahmed got down the train shivering with freezing cold. The train stopped there for ten minutes.  Ashraf was desperately in need of a hot cup of tea. So he hurried towards the tea stall.

After Ashraf got down the train, the tomcat also jumped.  But the tomcat did not land on the platform. He vanished.  Nonetheless a tall strong sturdy man wrapped in a blanket was seen walking on the platform.

Some of the passengers also went to tea stall to kill the chill. Some opted for peanuts and chips etc.  That strange man looked aimlessly here and there. He saw a compartment which was open. He got into it. It seemed as if    he was looking for that particular compartment.  He looked around then he sat on the floor with his face hidden in the blanket. However some part of his face and nose was visible. He seemed to a labor from his appearance so no passenger took any notice of him.
