I don't know exactly what to do at such times. I was sitting at a corner of my house. 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. I'm just wondering how I can spend the night. It was the night of 15th august. I came home from work at eight o'clock. After dinner, I was watching a drama on television at ten o'clock. When the half an hour drama was over, I prepared myself to sleep. 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.

The doorbell rang again. I opened the door and saw no one but an envelope on the floor again. I took the envelope and locked the door. This time the letter read "Are you ignoring me? I'm treating you so well but why are you not listening to me? Save me. Otherwise, I will come today". I completely tried to ignore the letter. 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.

I got my phone to check the time but my phone was out of charge. Then I lit a candle and stood in front of the wall clock. It was eleven o'clock. 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 one of my friends who lives near my house and 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, "Pamela, I'm Fiona. 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. All of a sudden my phone rings; it was a private number. Still I received the call. It was Fiona. Before I could say anything she started talking all by herself "Pamela, go to the door. Listen carefully what you hear and do it quietly". My phone turns off.

I go to the door. Someone was talking from outside "Save me!!!” "Who are you and how can I save you?" I said. "You can 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? What have I done to you that you want to kill me?" 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. Then why should she suffer because of me. I went to the door and said “I’ll save you. Leave Fiona." A sound came from outside saying "Well then, I'm leaving your friend. Open your window and look down."

I opened the window and saw Fiona running on the road. I go to the door again and talked like a living corpse "Tell me what I'll have to do?” He said “What you want your death to look like? Suicide or accident?”. “Accident, because I don't want to disturb or scare anyone.” I replied. "Okay then, open the door at sharp twelve o'clock with your eyes closed" he said lastly. I didn't say anything in reply. I don't know how I feel or how should I feel now. I just know that I'll die after some time and these are the last few moments of my life. No sound was there except for the clock ticking and me breathing heavily. Even the sound of wind wasn't heard.

It was twelve o'clock. I closed my eyes and opened the door, wishing for my death. As the door opened, the power supply came back. Flute was playing all around, laughter of many people was heard, so I slowly opened my eyes. As I opened my eyes I saw Fiona with some of my friends, standing in front of me with a flute, a birthday cake, a snow spray and many gifts. Among all these, I forgot that 16th august was my birthday which was the very next day. Then I found out that my friends did all this drama with the help of my watchman to prevent me from sleeping, so that everyone could wish me and make my birthday special.
