Me, my sis & my dad had gone off to some place.
When we arrived at the home we had taken on rent, i got to know that the rent is really low, they'll provide us with all the food & everything.
It was a one room flat on the first floor, and the land-lords lived on the ground floor.
When we settled inside our small room, the first thing i asked dad was that how come no-one occupied this room earlier if its so cheap. Dad took it casually & said how do i know.. must be something..
Then the night fell, & we all went to sleep. Since it was a single room, so we had got a folding spread out in the room, & my sis & me slept on it, while my dad slept on the bed.
When everything was still & we had peacefully gone off to sleep, i suddenly heard voices. To be precise, i heard a lady singing in a haunting voice in our room!!!
We were sleeping with quilts spread out all over our head, & so i peeped out from inside to take a look.
What i saw was a lady standing inside our room, in a white saree.
i was alomst dead!
i dont know how i got a bit courage & I whispered to my dad: Dad, there's someone in our room!!"
Dad said-"Stop imagining things & go back to sleep."
& so i tried to stay still listening hard to that haunting voice & also keeping a look at her.
But then what happened froze me! At the next instant what happened was that lady looked at the place where i was lying and decide to come towards me. i thought i am dead!!
She stood next to where my head was. i froze! and i closed my eyes in terror.
She lightly lifted the quilt, and peeped inside. I thought if i act as if i'm sleeping & i havent seen her then she might go away.
& that is exactly what happened. She saw my eyes closed, gave one last fleeting look, & went away.
For a few seconds I couldnt gather up my strength to say anything!!
I was too happy to be alive.... & started thanking god with all my might!!
& while i was chanting God's name i heard bells ringing around me. i felt as if God himself is here to save me!! To give me strentgh!!
The bells started getting louder & louder.... and i heard voices and then i realised I was in my room sweating profusley with the alarm clock ringing at its top-most voice.....
I thought oh! Thankgod it was dream!!

But then, was it really?? Keep wondering, while i myslef try to figure it out..... ;)
