Mystery Fiction Contest @

Hi Folks ! This is my entry to the 'Mystery Fiction Contest' at . You can find the announcement to the contest here:

It was absolute fun figuring out who the killer could've been. I couldn't think of a more suitable answer than the one below :) Here goes..


It’s very obvious as to who is the killer. It’s Lila’s conscience, the person who lived inside her!! An integral part of her that had borne way too much over the years. Heavy, disturbed and shaken, it just could take no more.

All her life, Lila derived pleasure in dominating over her men and other relationships; which had given her more than just plain happiness. It was a feeling of sadistic joy. However, ever since her last relationship with G had crumbled, she had come to realize that there were forces beyond her control that could destroy her forever. Demons had entered her body, ones who could remove her very existence from this world. And that feeling of helplessness shook the ground below her feet.

It really didn’t take much to bring her to the thought of ending it all, yet in style. There’s a very valid reason behind why Lila invited who was a part of her life to that last, grand finale of a party. She was too proud to apologize for the relationships soured because of her personality traits; but the person living inside her made her do it. She was to die of the virus that was G’s parting gift to her; but submitting to that death would’ve meant that she had given up!! No way would she ever let that happen, would she? She was Lila, she couldn’t bow down even before the wishes of the Almighty.

There is a reason why the others had tried to kill her and they had failed. No one could grant a suitable punishment to Lila, other than the person who lived inside her. In that flash of a moment, Lila emptied her life of all the memories and materialistic assets that she had clung on to and decided to leave. In the manner that befitted a woman who had fallen in her own eyes.

P.S: This is what I think I may have seen at Lila's house - Poster
