The sun was slowly setting and the darkness of the evening was slowly covering the sky. The setting sun was looking ever so beautiful and the water in the lake by the side of the road was shining because of the thin rays of the sun hitting the water.
Ahmad was going back to his home after taking his classes. With the bag on his shoulders kicking the small stones and the bottles coming in his way Ahmad was making a good journey back to his house.
“Ahmad it seems as if you are very tired today” listening to this voice suddenly Ahmad looked back and he saw Uncle Asim coming. He greeted his uncle and asked him what he was carrying in his hands. Ahmad bent down and and took a big shopping bag out of uncle Asim’s hand.
“Nothing my son it’s just some grocery items and few medicines” uncle Asim told Ahmad.
“you could have asked your servant to bring this stuff for you instead of going yourself” replied Ahmad.
“No my son I came here on a taxi and now you are holding al my stuff so I am not taking no pain what so ever” Uncle Asim smiled while saying this. Suddenly the clouds covered most part of the sky and it started getting darker slowly.
“My little boy give me this bag and go home, it will rain any moment” said Uncle to Ahmad in an authoritative manner. Ahmad nodded and gave the bag and all the stuff to uncle Asim and rushed back to his home.
Ahmad was a student of 7th class. They were 3 siblings in total and Ahmad had two younger sisters Ftimah and Amna. Ahmad was an extremely efficient and a genius student, he used to be on the top all the time in the class, and his interest in co curricular activities was extra ordinary as well and he was very fond of hunting as well.
Uncle Asim was living a retired life. Uncle Asim made a strong bond with every single child of the society, he was a very jolly sort of a character who used to love kids all the time. Uncle Asim too was fond of hunting and was a very experienced hunter as well. Ahmad was extremely happy to find a person like uncle Asim because both of them were very fond of hunting. After attending his classes at school Ahmad used to spend most of the time with uncle Asim. And on Sundays he used to be with Uncle Asim all the day at Uncle Asim where he lived with his big family. Because of his passion for hunting and with the help of uncle Asim, Ahmad was able to shoot the gun very well in a very less time period.
On one Saturday night it rained all night. Ahmad and his friends decided to go to Uncle Asim’s place because it was their off day from school. Uncle Asim started to tell them his hunting stories and started to tell them how he has killed deadly and big animals while hunting. “Uncle Asim please make me a perfect hunter I want to hunt a lion too” said Ahmad in a very exciting manner while listening to Uncle Asim’s stories. “You know how to hunt but just get a little elder then you will be able to hunt a lion” said uncle Asim.
On his way back to his home Ahmad saw the servant of Uncle Asim holding a huge bag in his hand and he was charging at some one. Ahmad decided to chase the servant of Uncle Asim because he was now anxious to know that where he was going. After covering some distance the servant put the huge bag in the bushes behind a huge tree with the intentions of hiding it. Ahmad was hiding himself behind a tree. “What could be there in that bag which Uncle Asim’s servant has put behind the bushes?” Ahmad asked himself. Ahmad started walking back towards his home.
“Thank GOD you are back home, we all were getting so worried” said Ahmad’s cousin Frhan when Ahmad entered his house.
“When did you guys come?” Ahmad asked Farhan after hugging him.
“since quite long, but where have you been for so long?” asked Farhan in an investigative manner. Ahmad told him that he had gone out to play with his friends. Next day when Ahmad was going to the school he saw those bushes where Uncle Asim’s servant had put the bag, suddenly he saw Uncle Asim’s servant walking away with bag in his hands, it was quite a deserted place.
Ahmad finally decided to chase the servant because every moment passing by was adding to his anxiety. After chasing him for 10 minutes Ahmad stopped and hide himself behind the tree because he saw the servant stopping and talking to another man. Ahmad tried to listen to their conversation.
“You have to reach the stadium at exactly 5 and you have to place this bomb at the right place, there will be lots of kids who will die after the explosion, and yes Sir Asim will pay you huge amount of money for this” said uncle Asim’s servant to that man.
Ahmad could not believe what he heard. Ahmad had to participate in a debate competition which was going to be held in the same stadium which the two men were talking about. Ahmad took the catapult out of his bag and aimed right at the head of the man who was taking the bomb to the stadium.
After that Ahmad went to the police station and immediately informed the inspector their and told him that it was Asim who was the master mind behind all this. Police immediately arrested Asim and his group as well, his family his friends all were terrorists. Ahmad was rewarded by the government and the police as well for his bravery. After some days Ahmad went to the jail to see Uncle Asim.
“You will be punished silly boy” said Asim to Ahmad in an angry voice.
“I am really happy that you taught me how to hunt, I did not hunt a lion but I hunted a BIG HUNT, I hunted a wild animal who wanted to destroy the world” replied Ahmad in a victorious manner.
