It was 11 pm on a rainy night. I was about to go to bed after watching a horror movie when my mother told me to go and close the terrace door. I was shocked!
In my house, if we have to reach the terrace we have to climb two floors. I didn’t want to be alone since the horror movie was still in my head but I said ‘Ok’ to my mother. I switched on the light to the stairs but unfortunately, the power was out.
I got a torch but there was no battery in it. I thought of taking a mobile phone but my mother was on call, my father was busy doing something with his phone.
I felt bad for agreeing to do this. I silently went to the stairs and stepped on it frightened.
I started to climb when I suddenly heard thunder as it was raining. I stepped on to climb the second floor when I heard someone shouting my name loudly. This made me still more scared. I started to chant some God’s slogans as they say ghosts are scared of Gods.
Suddenly, I heard my favourite song and thought who is playing this when there is no power?
Finally, I reached upstairs and closed the terrace door. I took a deep breath and ran downstairs fast.
As I reached down, my mother said that she was calling me aloud and it was my sister who played my favourite song on her phone. My father asked me how I had climbed up in the pitch dark. I didn’t respond but I was glad there were no ghosts up the stairs!
