Dr. Angshuman Bose was half lying on his arm-chair, watching his granddaughter Mili playing and giggling around him. “She means the whole world to me”, Angshuman thought, “And yet it’s almost time.”

His monitoring alarm started beeping again. “So they are closer now and they will be here soon”, mumbled Dr. Bose. He knew very little time left before they come and take away Mili and arrest him. Already a warrant is issued against Dr. Bose for kidnapping and violating the law.

When 6 years ago his only son and daughter in law died in a car crash, Mili was only 2 years old. Angshuman promised himself he will take care of his granddaughter till his last breath, provide her with both a father’s and a mother’s love. He looked at her again and sighed. It’s been 2 years now, Mili is still 8. She didn’t age a minute since that fateful day.

Around 2 years ago, when Angshuman, a well-known researcher and scientist of Electromagnetic field theory, was working in his lab he heard the news. At school, his little granddaughter fell down into the nearby water tank. After 4 hours they found her cold, lifeless body floating in there. That was the very day Dr. Bose had a breakthrough of his life.

During his research he found a very high reverse electromagnetic field can open a time tunnel for a very short period, through which it is possible to travel between parallel worlds. They are the parallel universes exist at the same timeline but carrying out different events of the history. In next two days Dr. Bose dedicated himself to find a parallel universe where Mili is still alive; he found one and travelled in there. He was astonished to find that the universe he landed, his whole family including his wife, son, daughter in law and Mili are alive and happy.

His heart twitched in pain, when he sneaked out with sleeping Mili in the dark of the night. He had some trouble convincing her that her Parents and Grandmother went on a long vacation, for initial days she was sad and crying but then she took it well. The only thing bothered Dr. Bose after few days was there was no sign of ageing in her, seems like she is stuck in time. Gradually he realized though she is the same Mili, but the timeline of this universe has no effect on her and she will not grow or change with the time of this world. It means she might live for eternity in this world and not even age a bit.

There was a time tunnel opened slowly on the left side of the room and the Intergalactic space police force stepped into the room. “Dr. Bose, you have to come with us, there are charges of kidnapping and violating the law of ‘parallel universe travel’ without permission. Mili should be returned to her own universe. Let’s go”.

Terrified Mili ran to Dr. Bose and hid herself behind him. “I won’t go anywhere, tell them Grandpa!”

(The concept of parallel universe is still foggy, anyone wants to put some lights on it, comments are welcome.)
