The Silver Bracelet.

\"\"

I just walked down the street, feeling alone as the cool breeze messed with my brown hair. The darkness was covering my path and surroundings around me. I was moving towards my house when I heard a voice behind me.

“Alicia, wait,” called my friend Mike.

“I don’t wanna talk about it Mike,” I said angrily looking into his brown eyes.

“You just can’t run away from it.” I know he didn’t mean it literally but what I did was totally childish.

“Well, watch me,” I said and ran towards my house. I closed the door and locked it.

I don’t wanna remember anything from that night. I would not say a word to anyone. I went in my room and sat there alone, thinking about that night. I could picture it perfectly. I went to the haunted house in our city Gorandill with my friend Mike on the eve of Halloween. Mike was checking out the outer area but I went inside. I was there in that big hall whose walls were covered in blood and that lifeless body of a young girl lay on the floor. Her face was ruined but there was no one else in the hall that could have done it. At least, that’s what I thought until I saw the spirit of a man flying in the air. I was scared so I ran.

“Don’t run pretty girl,” he said in a mocking tone. I didn’t stop until I bumped into Mike.

“Mike run,” I screamed at him dragging him along with me.

“What happened?” he asked.

“Ghost,” I said while running.

“That’s shit,” he said because he doesn’t believe in ghosts. But he was still running along with me.

When I reached the outer area, I stopped, just to catch my breath. I guess the ghost wasn’t following us anymore but I didn’t look back to prove it. As soon as I was out of that place, I stopped to look at Mike and tell him what I saw. He didn’t believe me and then suddenly the ghost appeared from behind him.

“No, Mike,” I said. I saw the spirit entering his body.

“You can’t run away from me, pretty girl,” said Mike but I recognized the voice and it was of that ghost. I couldn’t run away because he was standing in my path to the outer gate. I started chanting prayers to god and then remembered that I was wearing my silver bracelet, which my Grandma had given me. I had read in a novel that silver hurts the bad spirits. I don’t if it would work but I had to do something. So I took it out and threw it on Mike.

His eyes were like on fire, he screamed in pain. I just stood there, chanting prayers when I saw smoke coming out of Mike’s body. It looked like some shadow emerging out of his skin as I kept saying the name of God. Mike fell to the ground. I was scared to go near him, so instead I took out a sticky note from my purse and wrote on it,

Mike, I am going home. It’d be better if you get out of this place as soon as you can and keep my silver bracelet with you. Hope to see you soon.

Alicia

I kept the sticky note on the ground and my bracelet with it. I looked back at that place for the final time and swore that I would never come back to this place in my life. I was getting back home when I heard Mike’s voice from behind.

“What just happened?” he asked.

“Nothing,” I replied in a calm tone.

From that day, Mike has been asking me the same question every time I come in front of him. But I can’t tell him anything. I don’t even know myself what had happened there but one thing has changed now. I always wear my silver bracelet now, which Mike returned me.
