This is a short story on what happens to a girl when she had a power cut at her home.

Since my generator was not working, I went to the living room to call the guard. I gave him a call but he said that as today was holiday it would take time to get an electrician. I called my mother, but mother said they need more time to come home. Mom said there were candles in the fridge and showcase so I could light them up. I went to the living room with my phone's flashlight and took out the candles from the fridge and showcase.

As I entered the kitchen, suddenly some noise was coming from the veranda. As I stood in front of the veranda, I saw two eyes glowing over the glass. But I was sure that it was not a cat or an animal because there was no body seen except for the two glowing eyes. Suddenly someone knocked on the door very loudly, I could not understand what to do because I had those glowing two eyes on one side and such a bad sound coming from the other side. I fainted there in fear. When I woke up, I saw mother sitting on beside me. I ran to the veranda but then there was nothing. JUST NOTHING!!!

 Then my mother asked me, “How did you become unconscious?”

I said, “I don't know, I lit a candle then I don't remember what happened”.

Then mother said to make me comfortable, “Well, leave it! No need to think about it anymore. You are fine, that’s more important”.

 I will never forget what happened to me that day after the power cut. Those two glowing eyes are still a mystery to me. I'll never forget this power cut.
