Two Women In Their Graves And The Cat That Did Not Wait To Cross

This short piece is in response to flash/drabble photo-challenge posed here by Morgan Bailey.

He locked up the doors. One can’t be too cautious in these matters.  The call he had received in the morning…

He hurriedly took the car out of the garage – he was already running late.

Just in case…the gun was loaded and in its place, he had checked.

It all happened quite unexpectedly just when he exited the driveway slowly, easing onto the street…the darned cat did make it safely to the other side by a whisker not coming under the wheels or hit splat.

His old lady would have ordered him to get going – auguries and omens were not for her. Steadying himself he drove on – he could ill-afford to miss the meeting from start.

Half way up the street he saw a parked car with all glasses rolled up. Now his usual alert self, he sped past the car with one hand on the gun. Nothing happened. Must be his jangled nerves playing up?

In this time, as the black piece of fur scurried away for the nearest bush, ‘sh#t,’ the hooded man cursed his luck, and abruptly dropped to the floorboard inside the parked car. To heck with…his mom was not once wrong over these ‘messages’. Was it simply not the day to pick or it was something more portentous?  Needed figuring out.

Cat Within by R.K Narayan

Cat Within is a delightfully light, funny tale about exorcism and its varied practitioners who feed on people’s fears and imagination of the paranormal. Often the affected are no innocent babes and it becomes a case of who gets the better of whom at that point of time.

The story runs for 26 minutes with never a dull moment. Sit back and enjoy. The finish is brilliant as only RK can pull off!

Here it is: ‘Cat Within’.

In case you need a plot summary:

The tale takes place in Vinayak Mudali street in Malgudi around a sethji and a guruji (exorcist). The former is both a landlord who denies basic amenities to his tenants under constant threat of eviction and a shopkeeper selling provisions marked up substantially. The guruji is an established exorcist with a regular flow of clients handing out esoteric prescriptions for curing illnesses. Fearing burglary, the landlord cum shopkeeper sleeps at night in front of his shop.  He even rigs up an ‘alarm’ system of empty tins and cans strewn about to alert him of any intruder. One night he hears noises from inside the shop and peers in through a porthole. Sees vessels tumbling and one of them actually flying about! He calls guruji for help besides waking up the entire neighborhood. The guruji instantly ‘recognizes’ it as the handiwork of an evil spirit given to occupying up-turned empty vessels. He uses the occasion to trick sethji into confessing his wrong deeds. At a point sethji sees through guruji’s tricks, gets angry and forces him into the shop bidding him to drive the sprit away and locks the door from outside.

Inside the shop, the guruji freezes in fear as he sees the vessel flying through the air knocking down things. Eventually to everyone’s relief it’s only a cat – it frees itself from the vessel and flees. Sethji mocks at guruji: ’The cat is out. Where’s your vessel-residing evil spirit now?’ In a brilliant finish, guruji has the last word!
