I  worked  the  night-shiftas asecurity-supervisor.  in  an  office-building . Ihad  a team  of six  security-officers  under  me.
OnenightI  had  to  do  the  patrol  because  one  man  was  down  with  sickness.
 
Hey..Mok..let's  do  our  patrol.." I said  to  one  of  my  guy  who was  sitting  on  a  couch  beside  me, half-awake  I  presumed.  The time  was  past  three a.m.  It was  eerily quiet  aroundthe area where  the Guard-House was  located  somewhere  in  the basement.
 
"Now..?" Mok  mumbled  looking at  his watch.
 
:"Yup  now..." I said shortly  as  I  collected  two  torchlights  from the  drawer. After  I  tested  them. I  locked  the  door  . Mokdragged  his  feet slowly  in  front  of  me.
 
"Where  to  first  Sup?" Mok  looked  at  me, his eyes half-closed.
 
"We start  at  basement  three  first and then  end at the  first-floor  lobby..."Mok  just  nodded  his  head  and followed  behind.
 
"Basement three?..well  I  heard that..."Mok  tried to reveal  something to me.
"You heardthere's a  lady  ghost  in  red  walking aroundbasement three..? I asked  quickly.
"Yah..that's  what they  said....Dally  and  Friz  saw  her...and.."
 
"Nonsense..it's because  they were  lazy to patrol there that they created  all  silly  ghost 
stories..Mok..I've  worked  here  for  eight  months..and I  saw  noghost  around..all bullshit..come  on..let's  walk.." Mok  was a  bit  reluctant  I noticed.
 
As  we  reached  the  entrance  of basement  three, I  felt  some  kind  of chill. I  flashedmy torchlight at  every  nook  and crannies  of  the  place. All  I  saw  were  so many  shopping-trolleys  spread  around  the car-park. Lazy shoppers. Mok was flashing  his  torchlight also.
As  Mok was  playing  with  his  torchlight,he  thought  he saw the trolley  moved. He shone  at  it again. And it  really  moved as  if someone was  pushing  it.Then  all  of  a  sudden  it moved  fast  andhit  the  wall. 
 
"Hey  Sup..did  you  see that?..the trolley  moved"  Mok  said ,sweating  from  the  forehead. I saw  itmoved  too  so I cannot deny that.
"Let's  be calm  Mok..don't  panic...we're  supposed  to  be  the  security of  this  place  so  we  must be brave.."actually  I  was scared  too  but as a  leader  Ipretended  to  be  tough.
 
"Let's  leave this  place...let's  leave..I  feel unsafe here.." Mok's  voice  trembled. His hand was shaking.
 
"Okay..now  we  moved  towards  the  exit door  there  that leadsto  the  staircase.." I  pointed  at  exit  door G.
 
We  walked  hurriedly towards  exit G  and  Mok  opened  the small  door. As he did  so  he  shouted wildly.
 
"She's there!..she's standing there!.."  he slammed the door . He was visibly  shaken.
 
I tried  to calm him  and  looked  towards  the exit door.  It began to open slowly.
 
A  lady  in a  redflowing dress  appeared. Her hairwas  long  that  it  reached  ankle ..  She walked  slowlytowards  the  car-park  space  and stopped.  Then she  began  floating  in the air  and  sat  on  one  ofthe  motorcycle  parked  there. Her  head  turned  towards  us.  She  had a  sinister-look with  her  deep  dark eyes  piercing  our  eyes.
 
She  combed her  hair  slowly  with her  fingers . Mok  gripped  my  arm  and turned his head  away . I controlledmy fear  and  stared  back at her. She gave  an  evil-smile . My  hair  stoodon end  and I  feltmy body  chilled  to  the  bones.
Mok  began  to  limp and  dropped  to the floor. I could not hold him as he was bigger  than  me.  I immediatelycalled  for help  with  my  walkie-talkie .
 
"Harry...Limm...quickly come over to basement three...emergency!"
 
The lady rose  up  from the  motorcycle and  floated away  to the  big tree  outside  the  carpark and  I  could  see  her  amongst  the  leaves  before  she  disappeared.
 
I heard  footsteps  coming from the staircase. Two security-officerscame  running  to us. 
 
"You called  us?..what happened  to  Mok?"  one  of  them asked.
 
"Yah..I called.. pleasecarry  Mok  and  bring  him to my  office.."  I commanded. They quickly carried Mok  to the office.
 
"What happened to Mok Sup?..was he ill?" Limm asked.
 
"Er...you can  ask  him when he's  ok...." Iwrote my  report  but I  didn't write what had  happened . I  just  reported  that Mok  fainted  because  he was  not  well. That's  all. .
 
The lady in red. hmm.... Who was she?  well.... I'm not  eager  to find  out  about her.  Anyway I left the job two years  ago. .It's not because I was scared. I  loved the job..but..........
 
Okay  then...to the guys still  workingthere...good  luck....and  Mok....yes  he  quit too  and  drove  a  taxi  now....I  hope  the lady in red  was  not  one  of your  passengers...
