Little Whispers

“Let me tell you, do not stay at school after 6 pm.” Louis continued, “last day I heard our teachers discussing about a ghost who haunts our school. Can you imagine, the kid is about our age. Somebody might have murdered him. Anyway, all I know is he haunts our school and trust me it is true.” Everyone stared at him with wide eyes. ‘What if he was saying the truth?’ Everyone had this question but didn’t say anything out loud, scared or laughed at. “Haunting, ghost… nonsense. He is trying to scare us.” Greg came as a saviour now. “No, I … Continue reading Little Whispers

Conundrum (Chapter 9 – The Light)

Cathy went speechless. She didn’t know what to say. “I know you are still mad at me,” said David. “You might be thinking I abandoned you. I did, but as I witnessed Angelyn’s growth, I thought you should be with us. When I realized my mistake, it was too late. You would have been three by then. I came looking for you at that house where I left you, but the landlord said that the family had already left. I didn’t know that your lifeless body was there inside. I am sorry, Cathy, I was not thinking straight then. I … Continue reading Conundrum (Chapter 9 – The Light)

Conundrum (Chapter 8 – The Mad Lover)

“Us; John and me. We loved her. He loved her more, that’s what he said. That’s why he preserved her. That’s what we do when we love someone. We preserve them as a symbol of our love.” Tommy sounded triggered.  His eyes shined as he said about preserving them. Victoria, who stood there listening, said, “His thoughts are manipulated by John, John has put these things on his mind. Ask him what John had done to preserve me. Ask him!” “Tommy, I know you loved your mother. I know you wouldn’t hurt her. I know you saw what John did … Continue reading Conundrum (Chapter 8 – The Mad Lover)

Conundrum (Chapter 7 – Spirits of the Mannequins (Part 2))

Cathy was not surprised; she went closer to the isolated room and unlocked it. The room seemed different. The wall was painted in yellow tint with some photographs on it. She had a closer look at them; some of the pictures were of a young woman with a little boy while others were single photographs of the woman. The woman seemed very pretty; the young boy near her looked delighted. He resembled Arthur. Cathy figured out that the little boy could be Arthur, but who was this lady? She turned around and saw someone sitting in the corner of the room. Cathy … Continue reading Conundrum (Chapter 7 – Spirits of the Mannequins (Part 2))

Conundrum (Chapter 6 – Spirits of the Mannequins (Part 1))

The pain stayed for several days. I couldn’t eat anything. I thought he would starve me to death, but he didn’t. He injected the fluid system and fed me almost every day. I don’t know what made him a psychopath. I just needed to save myself. That’s when he told me, “I have packed your bag. We are going on a business trip and guess who is going to be there- Angelyn Lionel.” I felt bad for this girl; I hoped for her not to fall for this guy, but when I saw him smile as he reached our apartment, … Continue reading Conundrum (Chapter 6 – Spirits of the Mannequins (Part 1))

Conundrum (Chapter 5 – Kiara Vinson)

Present-day Angelyn stared at the mirror, hoping Cathy would be summoned, but she didn’t, “I guess I was a bit hard on her!” she sighed. She laid down for some time and decided to go downstairs. As she got there, she saw her mother in the kitchen. She had a sudden urge to ask her about Cathy. But she knew that would only hurt her mother.  “Good morning Honey!” With a smile on her face, Dalia said, “Hope you are in a good mood now.” She remembered how she behaved last night. “I guess I am. I wasn’t on my … Continue reading Conundrum (Chapter 5 – Kiara Vinson)

Conundrum (Chapter 3 – Confronting the Past)

Angelyn took some time to understand where she was. She stared at the Detective and asked, “Where are you taking me, Detective? I already told you the things I know.” The Detective realized that Cathy was not there anymore. “Oh my, not now.” He said to himself. “You don’t understand, Angelyn.” “Do you care to explain?” Her face turned red with a fretful whimper. “I am… I was…” Cathy couldn’t stay silent anymore. Meeting Angelyn was one of her greatest fear. She did know she had to face her sooner or later, but this is too soon. This was not how she … Continue reading Conundrum (Chapter 3 – Confronting the Past)

Conundrum (Chapter 2 – The girl in the attic)

The Detective didn’t know what was happening. He was scared and confused. “You look like a person I can trust; I think Doctor Firoz was wrong about you; he said you were pretty hideous but, what choice do I have. Well, I can’t let my sister be accused of something she didn’t do,” She said. The Detective gulped and stayed tied to his seat, all frozen, “What do you mean, Angelyn? You are scaring me now. Normally I am not frightened, but you make me feel terrified. I don’t understand.” The Detective said, almost shivering. “I am Angelyn’s twin sister; … Continue reading Conundrum (Chapter 2 – The girl in the attic)
