This story happened a few years back. We were in college and hostel was fun. If I remember right, it was the exam season and there was hardly anyone left in hostel. Me, my roomies and our friend were the only people left in our wing.
There are four people in the room. Let’s call them A, B, C and myself D. It was almost 3’O clock in the morning. Me and A are sleeping on the bed near the window. B and C are sleeping on a bed on the floor.
A noise startled me. I was wide awake and alert in no time. Bad luck or not, the first thing I notice after waking up is our window. All I could see was a black figure outside the window. I mustered some courage and tried to wake up A. I whispered, “Wake up! There is someone near the window!”. She turned the other way and continued her sleep. Stupid if you ask me. My only hope was sound asleep. There was only one more idea in my arsenal. Scream. Scream out loud. But I was so scared, no sound came out of my throat. I was shocked to realize this screaming will not happen. :O
Silence. Silence was all I could hear. And the sound of the mystery figure trying to open the table drawer. I decided. It should not be delayed. I then did the only thing I could do. I took the blanket and put it over my head pretending I haven’t heard anything, I don’t know anything.
At last, he was gone. He couldn’t find anything in the drawer other than some old notebooks. Stupid guy!
I got up and woke everyone up. I told everyone that there was a thief and he was trying to open the table. The responses I got was:
B: “Don’t be scared! That was only a dream.”
A: “I’ve told you not to watch those creepy movies of yours at night. Go and sleep.”
D: “I’m telling the truth. Believe me! This was not a dream!”
B: “Don’t worry. I’m here. There there” * Started singing *
A: “You stop crying. And go to sleep.”
D: “Look there.” * Points to the table. *
It is still a mystery who that guy was and what he wanted from our room. What can someone expect from the cupboard of a college student!
