Mohit did not believe in the old adage Never give up. Primarily because he never had to apply it to his own fairytale life—a life sans struggle and hardships. Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, Mohit just had to ask, if he ever wanted anything over and above all he was endowed with, and his parents ensured he had it. Being their only child, his parents raised him like a prince. Unfortunately, he grew up to be an arrogant, entitled one, who considered himself above everyone in his life.
As time went by, Mohit only grew more arrogant, with little interest in academics. Needless to say, he failed in high school, but that didn’t bother him at all. All his father said was “never give up, son,” and continued to indulge Mohit.
Mohit continued to take things for granted as he knew there was no fault in his stars; his parents were there to solve all his problems if there ever was any.
With great difficulty, he just about managed to complete high school. For his parents, it was a dream come true. They were so proud and overjoyed that they bought their son a sports car.
In college, Mohit became infamous for his spoilt behaviour. He flaunted his wealth and entitlements to his friends and professors alike. All he acquired in college was people’s utter contempt for him, including that of the girl he loved.
Two days after they had left, a drunk and disoriented Mohit received a call from an unknown number.
