[THERE SOUNDS THE BELL OF TEMPLE NEVER FAILS TO WAKE ME UP AT 6.30 AM.ALONG WITH MY MOTHER’S SOUND THAT ALMOST GOT ALONG WITH THE BELL LIKE A SONG.ROLLING AROUND MY BED, I WOULD TAKE ANOTHER 10 MIN’S,SUDDENLY A STRIKE,ON MY ASS!! MY EYES WIDE OPEN IT IS MY SISSY.TIME SHOWED ME 7.00.OK FINE TILL 30 MINS TO CATCH MY SCHOOL RIDER, SEEMED ENOUGH FOR ME. IN THE TEMPLE CITY, MYSELF SARAVANAN CALLED POPULARLY BY MY FRIENDS AS SARO.] SCENE 1: THE SCHOOL MY FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL AFTER TWO MONTHS OF JOYAND FUN WAS FINALLY OVER. GETTING 480 AT 10 GRADE ,MY FIRST DAY AT 11 GRADE IN NEW SCHOOL. IT WAS LIKE ME AND A PRE-KG KID HAVING THE SAME FEELING. NOW FEELINGS BEYOND,COMPLETING 10 GRADE WITH SUCH MARKS, I JOINED THE FIRST GROUP WITH THREE MAJORS AS EVERYONE OF OUR GRADE WOULD SAY, IT CONSISTED OF MATHS,CHEMISTRY,PHYSISCS,AND COMPUTER WHICH COULD HELP TO ACHIEVE OUR PARENTS AND SURROUNDINGS DREAMS TO BECOME AN ENGINEER. INTO MY CLASS XI ‘A’ THERE WERE 57 ALONG WITH ME, ABOUT 20 IN COLOUR DRESS HAPPY TO SEE A GOOD BUNCH OF NEW STUDENTS .AFTER A LOTS OF OBSERVATION SAT NEXT TO A BOY ALONE IN COLOUR DRESS.INTRODUCING MY FIRST FRIEND IN NEW SCHOOL ASHWIN A PERFECT SHAPE,WHITE SKIN,SOME MUSTACHE HERE AND THERE, A GOOD SMILE,CLEAR EYES,HEIGHT OF ABOUT 5.3’..HMMM I APPRECIATED MYSELF GOOD OBSERVATION SARO KEEP IT UP. FIRST OF ALL TIMES I TRIED IN GUESSING HIS CHARACTER WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR A DEDECTIVE. SHERLOCK HOLMES WAS MY HERO.DEDECTIVE IS MY FIRST AIM ENGINEERING MY UNCLE’S WISH.FOR YOUR KIND REFERENCE I HATE HIM. IT WAS PASSED 30 DAYS, SLOWLY THE SCHOOL BECAME FAMILIAR TO ME WITH ABOUT 10-15 IN OUR GANG., ALL CERTIFIED GOOD BOYS BY ALL THE TEACHERS.THEN CAME OUR FIRST EDUCATIONAL TOUR AFTER QUATERLY EXAM’S ,THAT’S HOW WE CALL OUTING IN SCHOOL DAYS.PLAN WAS FOR ALL THE 6 SECTIONS IN COMMON BUT TO MUCH OF CROWD WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO HANDLE SO THE MANAGEMENT DECEIDED TO CUT OF THE XI STD INTO TWO DIVISIONS WHICH BY OUR FURTHER PROTESTS WAS CUT DOWN TO EACH SECTION .AS BY THE ALPHABET ‘A’ COMES FIRST,WE WERE THE LUCKIEST TO START THE TOUR FIRST.THE TOUR WAS PLANNED FOR 4 DAYS AND 4 NIGHTS.HEADING FROM MADURAI OUR FIRST STOP WAS ABOUT 4 HRS FROM THERE IN KODAI. THE NEXT STOP WE PLANNED WAS SIRUMALAI ANOTHER HILL SATATION PROBABLY ABOUT 3 HRS FRM KODAI.SETTING OFF FROM FRIDAY EVENING THE TRIP CONCISTED OF 46 THAT GAVE OUR SCHOOL BUS A FULL SEATED CAPACITY ACCOMPANIED BY TWO STAFFS.4HRS JOURNEY WAS AWESOME WITH DO OR DARE,TEASING,SINGING,SHOUTING,ALONG WITH US RAIN TRAVELLED TILL WE REACHED THE GOUND OF THE HILLS THOUGH THE RAIN HAD STOPPED SINCE THE ROAD SEEMED SLIPPERY THE DRIVER WAS VERY CAREFULL AND SLOW ALONG WITH THAT THE STEEP BENDS JOINED HANDS WHICH MADE THE TRAVELL FURTHER LATE. AT LAST REACHED KODAI AT 9 P.M WHICH HAD TO BE 7 P.M OUR RESORT WAS COVERED BY WOODS ON ALL SIDES.

MY FIRST STAY AWAY FROM MY HOME AT NIGHT, EXITED!. THE RESORT WAS GOOD THREE STUDENTS WERE GIVEN A ROOM,IN MY ROOM I WAS ACCOMPANIED WITH ASHWIN AND JACK ,AFTER FRESHING UP DINNER WAITED FOR US AND AFTER HAVING GREAT DINNER WITH ROTI AND CHICKEN MASALA . ALL OF US JOINED THE CAMP FIRE, AND ONE OF IMPORTANT THING WE PLANNED WAS TO GET OUT OF THE RESORT AT NIGHT AND TO MOVE AROUND THE WOODS NEAR BY. SOON AFTER THE CAMP-FIRE GOT OVER. THE MESSAGE WAS PASSED TO OUR GANG, OUR GANG CONSISTED OF 4 BOYS AND 3 GIRLS.IT WAS THE GIRLS WHOM WE HAD TO CONVINCE AND ASSURE THEIR SAFETY ASH WAS GOOD AT THIS JOB AS HE HAD A CRUSH ON AKALYA ONE AMONG THE 3 GIRLS,WHO CONVINCED HARITHA AND AARTHI THE OTHER TWO.SO ALL WAS SET AT CAMP-FIRE 5 TEAMS WERE DIVIDED AND MANY GAMES WERE CONDUCTED.THE PLAN WAS TO ESCAPE FROM THIER ROOMS BY 10.30 AND TO MEET NEAR THE KITCHEN AT THE BACK BECAUSE THE WALLS NEAR THE KITCHEN WERE SHORT AND EASY TO JUMP. THE CAME-FIRE WINDED UP AT 10 ALL RETURNED TO THEIR ROOMS,ME, ASH AND JACK WAITED FOR RAAJU THE 4TH BUDDY IN OUR GANG, AND WE ALL OCCUPIED THE SAME ROOM AFTER A LOT OF STRUGGLE .AS OUR ROOM WAS NEXT TO CHANDRAN SIR’S IT TOOK US LITTLE COURAGE TO CROSS THE ROOM.HEADED BY ME FIRST I PEEPED THROUGH THE WINDOW AND WONDERED,WHY WAS A TEATOTLER CHANDRAN WAS WITH A GLASS OF WHISKY WITH THE SERVENT OF RESORT.ONE BY ONE AFTER THAT PEEPED THROUGH THE WINDOW AND JACK TOOK A PHOTO OF IT FOR LATTER USE.WE REACHED THE MEETING SPOT AT 10.35 PM ,THE GIRLS HAVE NOT REACHED…….. AFTER ABOUT 30 MINS TESTING OUR PATIENCE GIRLS CAME EXCEPT ASH ALL OF US WERE ANGRY. FIRST THE GIRLS JUMPED TO OTHER SIDE OF WALL FOLLWED BY ASH AND REST OF US.WE TOOK WITH US 3 TORCH LIGHTS,TWO KNIVES IN CASE OF EMERGENCY,AN ADDITOINAL INFO FOR READERS JACK,RAAJU WERE NCC GUYS SO THEY WERE QUITE FAMILIAR WITH TRECKING.AND MOREOVER RAAJU’S HOME TOWN WAS A VILLAGE NEAR BY KODAI, SO HE KNOWS THE PLACE BETTER THAN US . RAAJU AT FRONT FOLLOWED BY GIRLS THEN JACK AT THE LAST.OUR PLAN(BOYS HAD OUR OWN PLAN IT WAS TO CREATE GROUNDS FOR ASH TO PROPOSE AKALYA)SEARCHING GROUND FOR THAT SITUATION RAAJU SAID THERE WAS A GREENLAND ALONG THE LAKE SIDE IT WOULD BE BETTER.SO THE MESSAGE WAS PASSED TO REST OF THE GIRLS DURING OUR TRAVEL , I SAID TO HARITHA AND JACK TO AARTHI. EVERYONE AGREED TO THE PLAN AND WE REACHED THE SPOT.

SCENE 2: THE SPOT IN A FULLMOON DAY UNDER THE MOON LIGHT IN THE BANKS OF THE LAKE BEHIND THE WOODS.OHH! MY GOD THERE WOULD’NT BE A PERFECT SITUATION THAN THIS TO PROPOSE A GIRL.WE ALL STOOD A LITTLE FAR AWAY FROM THEM.HE HAD A GIFT FOR AAKALYA IN HIS HAND IT WAS A RING. AS USUAL IT WAS A DRAMATIC PROPOSAL.AFTER 10 MIN’S OF DEEP SILENCE, FINALLY SHE SAID YES!. ASH SHOUTED IN JOY WHICH DISTRUBED SOME WOLVES AND DOGS NEAR BY THEY SHOWED THEIR DISCOMFORT BY HOULING. AFTER THE HOULING PARTY OF WOLVES ENDED, THERE WAS A SCREAMING. DEFENITELY THIS TIME NOT FROM ASH,WE LOOKED EACH OTHER ONCE. DARK WOODS NO HOMES NEAR BY, WHO WAS IT ? I STARTED TO RUN IN THE DIRECTION OF SOUND,IT WAS HEARED ABOUT 500M FROM PLACE WE WERE. WHEN I REACHED THE SPOT, MY EYES WERE STILL, HANDS WERE FREEZING, 50% BECAUSE OF CLIMATE BUT THE REMAININGWAS DUE TO THE SCENE IN FRONT OF ME , THERE WAS A MAN SHOUTING FOR HELP. AS I APPROACHED FURTHER TO HIM, THERE WAS CHANGE IN SYMPTOMS OF MY BODY. SUDDENLY SWEAT COVERD ALL MY BODY AT 15 C.BECAUSE THE MAN WAS STABBED BY A KNIFE 4 INCHES BELOW HIS CHEAST.MY ASSUMPTION WAS IT MUST BE HIS FIRST CUT, THEN THER WAS A DOZEN OF STABS ALL OVER HIS BODY.BUT THAT PIERCE BELOW HIS CHEST WAS TAKING HIS LIFE AWAY. I BEND DOWN SWALLOWING MY FEAR, BUT COULD NOT HEAR THE MANS LAST WORDS.THE FIRST LIVE DEAD I SAW IN MY LIFE.STOOD UP TURNED AROUND NO ONE NEAR ME, WAS SURPRISED. WERE ARE MY BUDDIES, I STRONGLY REMEMBER THEY FOLLOWED ME,MAY BE THEY MUST HAVE MISSED THE PATH,RAN AGAIN TOWARDS THE LAKE.AGAIN I COULD SEE NO ONE, SOMETHING SPARKELLED AT MY EYES IT WAS THE RING THAT ASH PRESENTED TO AAKALYA.TIME WAS 11.45,NEARING MIDNIGHT ALONE IN WOODS,DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO MY FRIENDS,DON’T KNOW WHO IS THE MAN KILLED,DON’T KNOW THE RETURN ROUTE TO RESORT. SCENE 3: TO MY FRIENDS I CALMED UP MYSELF THE FIRST THING I DECEIDED WAS TO BE STRONG AT HEART,NEXT WAS TO SEARCH FRIENDS,FIND THEM TELL THEM WHAT HAPPENED RETURN RESORT BEFORE SUNRISE.OK NOW MY FRIENDS, LOOKED FOR THE TRACE OF FOOT MARK AS THE SOIL WAS WET IT WAS EASY TO TRACE THEM.IT LED ME TO THE CRIME SPOT .WALKED FOLLOWING IT SUDDENLY THE FOOTRACES TOOK A TURN ABOUT 100M FROM AWAY FROM THE CRIME SPOT. AFTER WHICH IT WAS ONLY MY FOOT TRACES .THOSE STEPS THEN LEAD ME THROUGH STILL DENSER WOODS. THANK GOD! I HAD A TORCH AND A KNIFE WHICH I BORROWED FROM RAAJU JUST A WHILE AGO.AFTER A WALK OF ABOUT 30MINS IT GUIDED ME TO A SMALL OLD OPENING SEEMED LIKE CAVE.MADE A STILL HEART AND ENTERED IT.MY EYES WIDE OPEN AND MY HEART BEATING LIKE A DRUM FOR FAST PACED SONG. IT WAS A TUNNEL THAT I ENTERED, I THOUGHT IT WAS SOME SECRET PASSAGE. ENTERD IT FOLLOWED THE PASSAGE AFTER 10MINS IT SHOWED ME TWO PATHS. WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE, I SAID TO MYSELF COMMON BUDDY BECOME YOUR HERO OBSERVE,WALKED A WHILE THROUGH THE TWO PATHS AND AT ONE PATH A CLUE STUCK ME. ”A CHAIN”, IT WAS HARITHA’S I OBSERVED HER SOO MUCH THAN OTHERS, IT HAD A DHOLPIN SYMBOL AT THE END THAT CONFORMED IT WAS HER CHAIN .STARTED TO WALK THROUGH THE PATH AT THE END FOUND A GATE GUARDED BY NO ONE,GOT CLOSE TO THE GATE I WAS MORE HAPPY BECAUSE THERE WAS ANOTHER PIECE OF HOPE THAT ENSURED BY BUDDIES WERE IN THERE. I FOUND A TRACE LOCK BEING BROKEN WITH THE KNIFE AND THERE WAS ALSO A SHOE LAYS THAT CONFORMES WOODLANDS THAT I SAW ON ASH LEGS THIS NOON.I STEPPED THROUGH THE GATE ON THE GROUND LIKE A CAT, IT WAS DEAD END. SO TOOK LEFT AND STARTED RUNNING.SUDDENLY A BIG WHIPPING NOISE WAS CLEARLY HEARD IN SILENCE.FOLLOWING IT TOOK ME TO A DARK SIDE BEHIND THE WINDOWS. IN THE ROOM SAW A PIECE OF GREEN TOPS AND BLACK BOTTOM, IT WAS HARITHA.SLOWLY MOVED SHUT HER MOUTH SO THAT SHE DOESN’T SCREAM, THEN CAME BEFORE HER.SHE WAS FRIGHTENED ASKED HER WHAT HAPPENED?. SCENE 4: THE QUICK FLASHBACK “AFTER YOU HEARED THE SCREAM WE FOLLOWED YOU SUDDENELY WE SAW A MAN WITH BLACK COAT , PASS BY A LITTLE FAR AWAY FROM US. WE TRIED TO CALL YOU BUT YOU WERE FAR AWAY. SO WE DECIEDED TO FOLLOW HIM, AFTER A WHILE HE GOT INTO A CAVE AND WE FOLLOWED HIM IT LEAD US INTO A TUNNEL.FOLLOWED HIM THROUGH IT, AFTER A WHILE HE ENTERED THIS HOUSE THROUGH A GATE. HE LOCKED THE GATE AND WENT. THEN JACK OPENED THE DOOR AND WE ALL ENTERED THE HOUSE. SHE SOBBED HEAVILY, I ASKED ABOUT OTHERS WERE THEY AND WHY SHE WAS SO TENSED.SHE AGAIN STARTED”WE MISSED HIM AND SO WE WERE JUST WANDERING THROUGH THIS HOUSE SUDDENLY!! SUDDENLY”.”WHAT..WHAT HAPPENED?”I ALMOST SHOUTED.WE SAW A BLACK SHADOW BEHIND US TURNED,NOTHING WAS THERE AND WE WERE VERY TENSED STARTED RUNNING.ALL OF SUDDEN I FELL DOWN,WHEN I LOOKED UP THEY WHERE HAD VANISHED IN DARK. I WAS TENSED VERY MUCH,AGAIN I SAW THAT BLACK IMAGE.GOT FRIGHTENED AND HIDE HERE”. THE MISSION TO FIND OTHERS STARTED I TOOK HER TO THE PLACE WHERE SHE SAID SHE HAD LOST THEM.THERE WERE THREE PATHS, ELIMINATING THE PATH WE CAME FROM. THEN WALKED A DISTANCE FOR CLUES IN ALL DIRECTIONS THIS TIME WAS NOT EASY.NO CLUES WHICH DIRECTION,CLOSED MY EYES A FRIGHTENED YOUNGSCHOOL KIDS, IN DARK, MY GUESS WAS THEY WOULD NOT CHANGE THEIR PATH THAN STRAIGHT ROUTE.SO STARTED WALKING FURTHER STRAIGHT WITH MY CRUSH. AHH!LATE TO SAY BUT IT IS GOOD, YEAH I HAD A CRUSH ON HARITHA. WALKED DOWN FASTER THERE WERE ROOMS ON EITHER SIDE VISITED EVERY ROOM WITH A KNIFE WITH HARIHTA, AT MY RIGHT.MY BLOOD FROSE FOR A SECOND AND WHY NOT THAT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SOMEONE CATCHES YOUR LEG AT THE BOTTOM.I LOOKED DOWN WITH FEAR. OHH!”YOU BASTARD”IT WAS RAAJU WHAT WAS THIS GUY DOING UNDER THE TABLE, GOT HIM OUT AND ASKED THE SAME QUESTION.HIS EYES DIDN’T CONTACT MINE FOR QUITE SOMETIME.I HAVE NOT SEEN HIM LIKE THIS.”I………..” HE COULDN’T SPEAK,CALMED HIM.HE STARTED TO SAY”MYSELF AND OTHERS WERE RUNNING TO ESCAPE FROM THIS HOUSE AND THIS HOUSE IS CALLED HOUSE OF CURSE BY LOCALITIES. PEOPLE WHO ENTERED THIS HOUSE HAD NEVER LEFT ALIVE”.HE CONTINUED”WE RAN TOGETHER SUDDENLY SOMETHING HIT ASH AT FRONT I FELL DOWN IN FEAR AND GOT UNDER THIS TABLE DON’T KNOW ANYTHING AFTER THAT”.HE FINISHED I SHOUTED AT HIM, “AREYOU THE SAME GUY WHO SAID THAT HE IS GOING TO SERVE MILITARY AFTER HIS STUDIES ? FEARING LIKE THIS, YOU WOULD BE FIT FOR NOTHING”. SCENE 5: A CRUSED HOUSE A CRUSED HOUSE SOUNDED INTERESTING,THOUGHT OF ASKING IT TO RAAJU, BUT THE BASTARD WOULD KILL ME AT THIS SITUATION.SO SILENTLY WE MOVED IN SEARCH OF OTHER FRIENDS. AT A POINT HARITHA NOTICED SOME SPOTS OF BLOOD ON THE WALL,IT WAS BLOOD MARKS OF HAND FOLLOWED THE ROUTE ,ADDING FEARS TO US.SOMEHOW WE MANAGED TO WALK . AFTER A WHILE IT LED US TO A ROOM, IT WAS MOSTLY A DEAD END AFTER THAT ROOM.WITH PRAYERS TO ALL GODS AND WITH LITTLE COURAGE , I OPENED THE DOOR AND MY KNIFE ENTERED INSIDE FIRST,SLOWLY KNOW MY BODY A BANG MISSING MY HEAD FOR GODSAKE.HITING MY SHOULDERS HARD. MYSELF IN THE GROUND, LOOKED ABOVE A FADED GIRL APPEARED TO MY EYES,THEN I GOT THE ASSISTANCE OF THE FLOOR.RAAJU ENTERED IN. WE WERE HAPPY AS WE FOUND THE CURRENT LOVERS ASH AND AAKALYA.AFTER A WHILE I SAT UP ON THE FLOOR,AAKALYA APOLOGIZED FOR HER ACT SAW ASH HEAD INJURED NOT DEEPLY JUST AN INCH CUT BUT THRE WAS A CONTINUOUS BLOOD FLOW . AT LAST AFTER GREAT EFFORT BLOOD FLOW WAS STOPPED AND WE RESTED IN THE ROOM TILL ALL CAME TO CONSIOUSNESS. A GOOD THING ABOUT AAKALYA’S STRIKE WAS,MYSELF IN THE ARMS OF HARITHA,IN THE MOONLIGHT HER FACE SEEMED SO MARVALOUS .MY EYES DIDN’T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE IT WAS BEST MOMENT IN MY LIFE. STILL FINIDING FRIENDS IS NOT OVER THERE ARE TWO MORE JACK AND AARTHY IN THAT HOUSE .NEED TO FIND THEM,AS USUAL ASH SAID THAT AFTER THAT BASKET OF WOOD HIT HIM HE DROWNED AND AAKALYA TOOK HIM HERE. AT LAST HAD CHANCE OF ASKING RAAJU WHY SO CALLED CURSED HOUSE. AFTER A MINUTE SILENT FOR HIS ANCESTORS,”MAY BE”! . HE STARTED.MYSELF STILL AT HER ARMS.ASH TAKEN CARE BY AAKALYA,”IT WAS A STORY I HEARD IN MY CHILDHOOD MY FATHER ONCE HAD A SHOP BENEATH THIS HOUSE IN THE STREETS. THEN HE SAID THIS HOUSE BELONGED TO A LAND LORD OF BRITIAN ONCE HE LEFT INDIA HE SOLD ALL HIS OTHER BELONGINGS EXCEPT THIS HOUSE AND FROM THEN HE AND HIS WIFE USED TO VIST THE HOUSE ONCE IN A WHILE.THEY BOTH WERE GETTING OLD NEARING 80’S. THEY CAME TO THIS HOUSE BUT NOT ALONE THEY CAME WITH THEIR GRANDSON YOUNG,GOOD PHYSICE,BUT NOT AT THE MIND, HE WAS MENTALLY CHALANGED.THE PURPOSE OF THEIR VISIT WAS TO SELL THE HOUSE AND MOVE QUICKLY TO LONDON FOR TREATMENT OF THEIR GRANDSON.THERE WAS MANY BROCKERS APPOINTED FOR THAT INCLUDING MY FATHER.BUT IT DIDN’T WORKOUT. FINALLY CHANDRAN A MAN WHO WAS RICH DOWN THE HILL CAME TO BUY THE HOUSE THE OLD COUPLE WERE VERY HAPPY WITH THE RATE AND AGREED TO SELL. IT SEEMED THAT THE BOY WAS NOT INTRESETED IN THIS BUSSINESS,AND WAS DISSAPPOINTED. IT WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE THE AGREEMENT DATE THE MAN DOWNHILL CAME TO THE HOUSE HE SAID THAT THERE IS PROBLEM IN THE DOCUMENT AND HE WOULDN’T BUY FOR THE PRICE HE SAID AND QOUTED A LOWER PRICE AND HE ALSO MADE THE OLD COUPLES TO ACCEPT THE CASH,BECAUSE OTHERWISE WHICH HE THREATENED THAT HE WOULD SPREAD ROMOURS ABOUT THEIR HOUSE AND NO ONE WILL BUY IT. FINALLY THE AGREEMENT GOT SIGNED AND CHANDRAN REGISTERD THE HOUSE IN HIS NAME .THAT NIGHT HE SAID THAT IT WAS HIS HOUSE AND STAYED THERE WITH ALL HIS FRIENDS AND PARTNERS . THE OLD COUPLE AND THE POOR BOY WAS TO RETURN TO THEIR HOME THE NEXT DAY. THAT NIGHT WAS MOST TERRIBLE IT WAS A FULL MOON DAY,THE GANG DRANK LIQOUR DANCED HAPPILY. THERE WAS AGIRL AGED 16 WORKING THERE AS A MAID.SMALL GIRL AT MIDDLE OF THIS GANG,NOTHING COULD BE DONE BY HER OTHER THAN WORDS HER LAST WORDS WERE”EVERYMAN WHO TOUCHES ME THIS IS THEIR LAST DAY OF LIFE”.NO ONE LISTENED TO HER SHE WAS GANG RAPED,THE LIGHTENING AND THUNDERS SAW IT ALONG WITH THE BRITAIN FAMILY . AFTER THAT ALL THE MAIDS WERE SENT OUT OF THE HOUSE WITH THE WARRNING.THE NEXT DAY ONE OF THE MAIDS RETURNED TO THE HOUSE , BLOOD CAME TO THE DOORSTEPS TO WELCOME HER .OPENING THE DOOR SHE WAS FROZEN,SHE HAS SEEN NOTHING LIKE THIS. IT WAS A MASS MURDE. ALL WERE INJURED AND DEAD WHOLE GANG WAS WHITEWASHED. THEN SHE CAME TO A PART OF HOUSE BURNED HALFWAY STILL WALKED FURTHER POOR ENGLISH FAMILY ALL WERE BURNT. AFTER THAT INCIDENT NO ONE CAME TO BUY THIS HOUSE. MANY PEOPLE SAID THEY SAW THAT BOY WANDERING THROUGH THE HOUSE.AFTER A LONG TIME A GROUP OF THIEVES ENTERED HOPING FOR JEWELRY BUT ENDED ON IN THEIR LIVES THE SAME AS THE GANG,IT WAS ALSO A FULL-MOON DAY ALSO THEN .A GENERAL SAYING IS THAT THE BOY KILLED THE GANG AS THE REVENGE FOR THE GIRL AND AT LAST FIRED HIMSELF UP.. SO THE HOUSE GOT IT’S NAME CURSED HOUSE. YOU ONLY COME IN AND ONLY YOUR LIFE GOES OUT. RAAJU FINISHED I LAUGHED HARITHA HIT ME HARD “THIS IS NO JOKE”.YEAH IT IS NO JOKE THAT A 15 YEARS MENTALLY CHALANGED BOY KILLS AS A GHOST,FINALLY OUR SEARCH FOR OTHRE TWO FRIENDS STARTED. SCENE 6: WAY OUT WOKE UP OUT OF THE ROOM ASKED AAKALYA IF THEY FOLLOWED AARTHI AND JACK SHE SAID NO.WANDERING AROUND THE HOUSE FOR ABOUT HALF AN HOUR NO CLUES,GOT TO A PLACE IN THE HOUSE WHICH WAS BURNED.ALL MY FRIENDS STOPPED ABOUT 20FT AWAY FROM THAT PLACE. MYSELF LIKE ALONE WARRIOR HEADED TOWARDS THE DOOR CAUGHT THE HANDLE MOVING IN SUDDENLY A SHOT FROM A CORNER OF THE HOUSE.LEFT THE DOOR OPENED RUSHED TO THE PLACE OF SOUND.THERE STOOD AARTHY ALMOST LIKE A STATUE .
