The Magic of an Audio File Part-3

I discovered my passion for writing after I quit my day job. So I began to write fiction stories, self-help books, and articles, blogs, etc.

As soon as I reached my place, I changed into comfortable clothes after washing up.

Then I searched for Samuel's number on my smartphone, and I got it and gave him a ring.

He picked it up on his end and said, “Hello”, not recognizing me.

“It’s me Rosina Khan, your friend in the writers’ circle.”

"Oh, yes! I remember you", he said. "What's up?"

“I have been talking to your cousin, Sally Jones. It was she who mentioned that you gave the audio file to her.”

“Can I ask a few questions about the audio file?” I asked.

"Look, Rosina. There's nothing to ask further about the audio file. You said you deleted it. So that's where it ends."

“Come on, Samuel. Please talk to me. Do you attribute all the bad luck occurring in your life to the audio file? I can tell you listened to the whole of it.”

“Okay. I will answer this question only if you answer my question first.”

“Do you have further copies of the audio file anywhere?”

"Yes, I do. I remembered recently that I still had a copy on the original flash drive that Sally gave to me.”

“Okay, can you make a promise?”

“All right, Samuel. What is it?”

“Delete the file from the flash drive. Then I will be ready to answer your questions.”

“Okay, I promise”, I said honestly and hung down.

I connected the flash drive to my laptop and deleted the audio file. I thought I had enough conversations for one day. So, I made myself a meal and was preparing to get to bed when my phone rang.

Well, it wasn't Samuel like what I had thought- some insignificant prank call, much to my relief.

The next day after seven hours’ sleep, I woke up, washed myself up, and prepared my breakfast.

I was planning my day. I was debating whether to call Samuel or not when he rang my phone. I was excited.

“Yes”, I said, “I am glad you called.”

“I waited for you to call back yesterday”, he said simply.

“Yes, I was tired. So, I took a break.”

“Are you okay now?”

“Yes, very much.”

“Did you delete the file from the flash drive?”

"Yes, I did."

“So, what other questions do you have regarding the audio file?”

“Well, do you think all the bad luck that happened in your life was because you listened to the end of the audio file?”’

“Yes, I do.”

“That’s interesting. How’d you know?”

"That's because a couple of friends who had listened to the end of the audio file had immense good luck followed by bad luck. Furthermore, those who had listened to only a part of it had a lot of good luck only. Does that answer your question?”

“What kind of good luck and bad luck did they have? Were they similar to your case?”

"Well, more-or-less. Their major business, for which they needed the audio file, was always successful, but family members and part-time jobs were affected badly."

“Were there always deaths in families and losses in part-time jobs?”

"Bad luck didn't always mean death in the family. But things happened that were dreadful. For example, separation and divorce and fighting for custody of their children. Or, some illness that persisted over months with the hope of survival in the end. Yes, there were losses incurred in part-time jobs, and even people got laid off from them. But there was no way to predict what kind of bad luck one would experience if he listened to the end of the recording."

“Is there a way to tell you that the end of the audio file was malicious?”

“Yes, I had it checked by a music composer. He found the end of the audio file contained discordant vibrational frequencies which an amateur listener wouldn’t discover for himself.“

“What do you mean by discordant vibrational frequencies?”

“Sound vibrations that are not in harmony with the rest of the audio. It simply is dangerous to listen to this part, which is actually at the end of the file.”

“The biggest tragedy is that even the music composer experienced immense bad luck after a duration of good luck”, Samuel continued.

“What was it like?”

"His music compositions started to hit the charts, and he was becoming extremely popular when his little daughter had serious asthmatic problems. Had they not made it to the hospital on time, there would have been grave consequences. Then one night, when he and his family were out holidaying, there was a burglary in his house. All his savings, which he had saved in his secret safe, were smuggled out, and to this day, he couldn’t fathom how they worked out to unlock the safe. It was only known to him.”

“Oh, I understand, Samuel. That answers all my questions. I am glad the file is nonexistent now in my life. Thank you so much for all your cooperation and patience.”

"My pleasure", said Samuel. "Enjoy all the good luck the audio continues to bring, my friend."

“Thanks so much. You are a real well-wisher. Good day to you, Samuel.”

Brenda, I was reading your comments in an amusing mood. The last advice of yours: "Don't listen to any audio files" simply killed me with laughter. Thank you for reading and finally commenting through the feed. I really appreciate it.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on November 24, 2020:

Interesting and enjoyable read. I believe that curiosity is important in a story, and you took care of that. Well done, with nice ending.

Thank you for sharing this engaging story.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on November 24, 2020:


Finding this on the Hub feed has proved most difficult.

Once I changed settings it was here long enough for me to read it and then it disappeared again.

It is before my eyes again so I am tapping my words out quickly on this phone.

I am happy that no bad luck will follow her since she made the wise decision to delete the file.

I do wish it was a littke bit more dramatic...like samuel having to conjure up a spell to make it dissappear or something...but that's just the way my mind works. Constantly on overload.

Your writing this series is good.

I wonder what will spark in your imagination next.

Take care and have a great day. Don't listen to any audio files.

Rosina, I had read this article but wasn’t able to comment at the time as it had already moved. I had to find it on my feed. You did another great job with this final part of the story.

Rosina S Khan (author) on November 23, 2020:

I am glad you liked the story a lot. Thank you for reading and your generous comments, Ankita.

It was really interesting to know how the end of the audio file brought bad luck. You have concluded the story beautifully and in an unusual way. I liked it very much.

Denise McGill from Fresno CA on November 23, 2020:

Well, I believe that certain sounds in musical tones can bring harmony and even well-being in the body but I'm not sure it can bring bad luck. Still, there are many things on the earth that are not explainable. Nice ending. I was waiting to find out the answer. Thanks.



manatita44 from london on November 23, 2020:

Sweet!! Curiosity is always like that, or should I say the mind? It likes to know. Still, another beautiful piece of writing. Salaam!

Rosina S Khan (author) on November 23, 2020:

I am glad you agree with Bill that I am growing as a storyteller, Peggy. Thank you for reading and commenting.

I am glad you found the final part of the story enjoyable, Bill. Thank you for reading and commenting.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on November 23, 2020:

Discordant vibrations are unpleasant to hear. What it does to our bodies (and therefore, our luck) is an inventive twist to this story. I agree with Bill. "You are growing as a storyteller."

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on November 23, 2020:

Nice twist! Enjoyable story. You are growing as a storyteller, my friend.

I am glad you liked the final part of the story, Liz. Thank you for reading and your generous comments.

Rosina S Khan (author) on November 23, 2020:

Yes, the story is unique. It is possible for an audio file to impact a person or more by its waves when they hear it. Unfortunately, I haven't got more to write on this, and this is the final part.

Liz Westwood from UK on November 23, 2020:

This has an interesting and unusual conclusion. I liked the way you extended the suspense by delayinhg the call back

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on November 23, 2020:

This is a very unique story. I wonder how an audio file could impact a life in a negative or positive way. I will look forward to what you write next, Rosina.
