Last evening, out of blue, I just suddenly started missing my best friend who might be resting in heaven right now! That twilight hour, it wasn’t daytime nor nightime, memories of past just started flourishing in my mind. The good times; where we laughed and laughed, The bad times, weren’t where we cried, they were when we were scared. Scared? For exams and tired from daily routine! No matter what happens she’s always the one who’s positive! In our group, of three friends,she was Sun. She was light! It’s same, we see the value of people when they’re all gone away from us.
I ran to her grave, come what may. But what I saw was something maybe, it would be better, if I just didn’t saw it. Her grave was open. I could read her name on graveyard plate. It reminds of the time when we joked that we might one day come to graveyard and scare each other at night. I don’t know what happened! I just started crying. Where she might? No! Where her body might be? What just happened? It shocked me till my death. Soon it was all dark. One of the watchman maybe asked me to leave. So I just went to my house, barefoot, crying all the way! I didn’t care about all the glares and complimentary I got all the way home. I was just so out of my mind!
Next morning, I went to school! Although my mood was off! I never wanted to go to that same school where I spent 3 years together laughing and playing around! It’s just so unfair. Places keeps on reminding you your talks, pranks, moments and memories which now I just wept on. Can a miracle happen? Please God! Is what I always kept on praying…….! Last talk I had with her was of visiting school terrace one day! Being for 10 years in SIS we had one dream — to go to terrace and see the whole town on the day of graduation! I spent my whole day wandering moodless. It was almost 5:00pm. Our school cleaners asked me to lock the classroom as I was on duty of taking care of it! 2nd floor workers went to ground floor… I was all alone on our most memorable floor where we ran, laughed, walked, played and maybe cried too!
I suddenly thought of going to terrace as it was unlocked as I noticed! That cabin room! From where one can see whole town! Was my last wish to see
her? Whole town…….. As I went to Terrace… It was all silent . You can only hear the chirping of birds, sound of heavy wind and hustle hustle of bellrings…. Out of all sounds I heard a crep voice comin’ from cabin room as I went close I saw a closed where it’s all making weird noise! It startled me. Slowly I went a bit close to it… As I was moving cupboard flash open and I saw a hand. A hand…? Of her! Yeshh! There she was…your eyes always wants to see the person you miss the most! I went to her.. all panicking ! I saw her dead body ,first encounter of seeing a dead body of my own best Friend, was just few months back! I asked her what happened? What’s going on?
She asked me to leave at once! I was all confused and crying. When she opened her eyes. It was all red! She admitted that She has converted into a GHOUL.
I was shocked! Blood was pouring out from her eyes and for most, I can’t wipe them.. I felt useless! Coming back to my senses I just wanted to say to her last time, and I confessed…
Dumbo! I’m I was and I always will be happy and lucky to have an alien an idiotic friend like you! No one can take your special place a soft corner is always just reserved for you!
I felt like taking her to hospital and getting all treatment done! Btw as soon as I touched her she started vanishing from that cupboard! I grabbed her hand and hugged her. She whispered in my ear,“I was always happy!! Wherever u go, make sure to have fun, daffor.”
I came to the school ground and watched the beautiful Twilight hour which was so beautiful as if it’s her Good Bye!!
There were tears in my eyes btw of happiness……. She’s a weirdo! I mean, definitely.
Here it’s end of the story! Probably it was a dream too! Thanks for reading! If u reached till here! It’s Like what I thought before going to sleep maybe! It’s all Fiction!
