Mom told me not to move into a new home alone but I thought there would be no problem. But now it seems that listening to mom was a wise thing to do. My whole body became cold; it felt like I couldn't feel any part of my body. At eleven o'clock my doorbell rang. I opened the door and saw no one, but there was an envelope on the floor. I opened the envelope and saw a letter inside.

The letter said "You are good to everyone; you help everyone all the time. You can save me. You will have to save me. I will come to you. Will you save me? I will come...” It was a little bit strange to see the letter but later on I thought it was only a week since I got up at this house so the person who sent it may have sent it to the person who had lived before. Without giving much importance to the letter, I called and had a talk with my mom.

I prepared to sleep; my eyes caught up and I felt asleep. Suddenly my sleep broke. I woke up and found that the power supply was off. Suddenly someone was knocking very loudly at the door of my house. I opened the door but nobody was outside, so I closed the door. Suddenly I felt like a cold wind blew by my side, but I didn't give it much importance. I tried to light up my house by candles.

Suddenly there was a sound as if someone had thrown a brick at my window. I opened the window but couldn't see anyone. As I closed the window and was on my way to the living room suddenly someone whispered from my back, "Won't you save me?” I ran into the living room in fear and put the phone on charging; all thanks to my power bank. I called Jessica told her to come to my house as soon as possible.My body was trembling with fear. But there is no other way than to wait. Suddenly someone was knocking at the door very slowly. I stood in front of the door in fear. I asked gently "Who is it?"

From outside a reply came, "Peggy, I'm Jessica. What happened to you? Open the door." I say with joy "Wait! I'm opening the door." As I was about to open the door, I heard her screaming from outside "You don't get out of the house. Lock the door well and stay inside. Aaaa!!!" I locked the door well and kept waiting for the night to end.

Suddenly it felt like a noise was coming from outside the door. I go to the door. Someone was talking from outside "Peggy!!!” " Jessica? Is it you??" I said. "Peggy, save me by sacrificing your soul. Save me!” I reply in a shock "What are you even saying?” "You will have to save me and for that you will have to die." he replied. "Who are you? And where is Jessica?" I asked. "If you don't give your soul, I will take your friend's soul!”

"No! Noo! Nooo! Don't do anything to her. Please! Leave her!!!" I screamed. "Now it's up to you. You have two options; either lose your soul or your friend." he announced. I kept quiet for a while and thought that I am the one who called her and got her into this problem. I went to the door and said “I’ll save you. Leave Jessica." A sound came from outside saying "Well then, I'm leaving your friend. Open your window. Take a deep breath and jump out the window”. I was about to jump when suddenly Jessica comes in from behind and whispers in my ear, "Your parents are all alive, I will be cursed if you die. My parents have died, what will I do by living ? I will just regret that I couldn’t save you. Pray for me so that I can make my parents happy. I love you! ”. Jessica pushed me away and jumped out the window. I run down the stairs. But it was too late. I couldn't save Jessica.

Jessica proved her friendship. Even today, I keep a flower in front of her grave everyday. I love you Jessica and forgive me. I couldn’t save you from those letters and I couldn’t face my own problems. Forgive me. If I go to paradise I'll see you, I Miss You. I really do.
