Don't Leave My Shreddies Out

A seventeen year old boy left home one midnight. It has been six years since. The girl who loved him has married someone else. His brothers and his father forgot him when the property was to be shared. His sister stopped buying Rakhi for him.
His mother always insists every night: "Please, leave the door open".
