Greta was shocked when she opened the envelope and saw that it was a letter from someone. “Jeez who writes letter these days…” As she opened it, she grew more curious; she read the first sentence aloud in surprise, “Dear 25 year old Greta, you are making the greatest mistake of your life by marrying Jeffery.” “Seriously, who plans pranks like this!” She continued reading, “You may find this difficult to believe. But trust me, you are gonna find someone way better than him. Okay, so you don’t trust me. I know it’s hard to believe that your five-year relationship … Continue reading A Letter from Future Greta!
“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
It’s already 5’o clock in the evening, and I am waiting at the bus stop near my school for someone to give me a ride back home.

Honestly, I am scared. What if something unfortunate happens here after 5 pm? My friends tell … Continue reading The Candyman

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?

Nine months back. Angelyn is at a business meeting. She came there to represent her company ‘After You.’ After her presentation, she was pretty bored. She checked her phone now and then to see the time. It felt like the time was moving pretty slow. That’s when she noticed a handsome young man coming up next to present his company.

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.

That made him the prime suspect in the murder of Kelly Wincostin. “Oh hell yeah, I am counting on it,” Angelyn said as she swallowed her anger. Arthur seemed calm for the deed he had done.
