"A Case of Missing Notifications" is a small yet gripping and intense detective fiction story written by Nitin. This is the first part of the series.
It was quite dark in the cold night. Wind blew and hit my face hard. I shivered and then regained my senses. I looked at the clock hanging on the wall just in front. It was midnight. I began to sweat as I did not get a clue to what was happening. My client had registered an investigation case with me few days back and I was supposed to give my status report to him the next day.
Without wasting another second, I went over to the window and looked outside. It was really a dark cold night; no stars, no moon! I felt darkness grip me within. However, I had no time to waste, I NEEDED TO DO IT SOMEHOW!
After some research and arguments over call with my client, I calmed myself and prepared myself mentally and physically. It was either of do or die for me. I waited for the sun to rise.
Next day - 10:00 AM.
I reached the destination well before the scheduled meeting time with my notes and detective uniform. Dark glasses and my favorite brown coat from the shelf. I was waiting for my client. He came a bit late with a devilish smile. I had a feeling, maybe he knew my reports would not satisfy him. However, I was adamant and sure that I WAS CORRECT. I was the best person to solve his case.
I knew this in my heart. Now it was the time for me to prove the same to him.
