It Will Find A Way To Come Out.
“This had been started with Me since one and a half months back. Whenever I switch off my room’s light and try to sleep. It appears from nowhere. I feel like something is crawling on my bed… Sometimes in the middle of the night, I feel a cold touch on my face or body. It happens almost every night. I am really scarred.” while He was explaining his scarry experience to doctor , starring into nothing , sweat beads appeared on his forehead and he was shivering.
After listening to his problem doctor said, ” There is Nothing to be scarred of. It’s our mind that plays a trick when we are alone or in the dark place. And about crawling and touching sensation in the sleep, It is common with most peoples. It is a symptom called as Sleeping Paralysis.” Doctor gave him Some instructions and prescribed medicines. He was little relieved but still frightened.
At night he scanned his room like he always does before switching off the light. Then, He said to himself, ” Like doctor explained it is nothing but the medical problem.” He took pills and switched off the light. While He was about to sleep, he saw a black shadow of a woman standing near the window starring at him. He put on the lights, but saw no one there. He was scarred because he knew he saw someone, but again brushed it off thinking it as his mind’s trick.
Later in the midnight when he was asleep, he felt a cold touch on his cheeck. Frightened he slowly opened his eyes. He was still feeling like someone was beside him. He thought, when he is not asleep, how could this be the symptom called sleeping paralysis. He decided to turn and see if it is real or his imagination. while he was turning Slowly, he saw her face… very close starring at him. He was freezed. It was not what doctor explained him about medical term or his mind’s trick. She was in real..the ghost was in real and now she was beside him, starring at him angrily.
When he saw her face, the incident that happened couple of months back flashed in front of his eyes. The incident that was kept secret from everyone… the accident which was happened from him when he was driving in drunk state while coming from the party couple of months back.
A young lady who was returning from her late night job was crushed under the wheels of his car. Instead of helping her he left her there and ran away.
Now He realised all this scarry experiences started with him after that accident. She was none other than the girl who he had left to die because of his mistake. His mistake cost her life. He apologized her, but still she was starring at him in anger. He said, “I am sorry. The accident was a mistake. I was afraid and that is why I ran from the spot without helping you. Please leave me alone. “ she smiled and said, “I will be with you forever, so that you will never forget your crime. I will not kill you, but make your life a suffering for you. You left me to die and I will keep you alive. I will make your life itself a punishment for you.”
