The House Around The Corner

She is surprised why the house around the corner is so quiet. Where have all the people gone? Once upon a time, she was always welcomed into that house but not anymore. She doubts that anybody will allow her even near to that house anymore. So, first, she attempts to ignore it. “Why do I have to care what happens in that house.” However, her curiosity continues to elevate, so it becomes hard to control herself. So, she has decided to take a walk. 

Next, she finds herself outside of her house, but she has been covered head to toe with a white shawl. Suddenly, she comes back inside the house and takes her white shawl away” Why am I hiding, and who am I afraid of?” She steps out in her typical western attire to find out why the house is so quiet. She doesn’t want anybody to stop her, so she takes the backside road. She could see the house from her window, but her journey became longer when she started to walk toward the house. She meets many people on her way. Next thing, she sees herself lying on the airplane seat. Her eyes were closed, but she could still listen to people sitting around her. One voice says, “Do you know who she is? Another voice says, “No, I don’t know her.” The first voice says, “She looks very familiar.” She ignores the conversations. 

She continued to walk toward the house of her curiosity when her plane landed. She goes to the back wall of the house. The curiosity has made her jump on the top of the wall so she can see clearly inside. She doesn’t see anybody inside. The house is as quiet as a haunted house. She asks herself, “Is he gone somewhere else?” suddenly, she sees a familiar face who asks her, mam, what are you doing on the wall. You are not allowed to be here. Please, leave; somebody will shoot you”. Before he says anything else, she has already jumped into the house’s backyard. She tells the guard, “Why everybody is born so scared here. I am already dead, so don’t worry, nobody else could kill me now”. she had already entered the house before the guard should have said something to her.  Fearlessly, she goes upstairs and turns toward the familiar room. She looks around the empty room. She remembers old memories. She carefully looks at each familiar thing in the room. Suddenly, she grabs a sharp object from the table. Next, she noticed that she graved each wall and the roof with the one thing, “I love you so much, but why have you failed me? He could only make sense of what she had written.

Suddenly, she hears the sound of sirens coming nearby. The guard runs upstairs to alert her,” Please, mam, you should go now. you will be killed”. She could see the fear in his eyes. She smiles. Suddenly, she hears a familiar voice yelling at the guard. She listens while lying in the next room. She finds out that her couple of friends and co-workers are also lying around in the same room. She gets out of the room and starts banging on the closed door of his room. He doesn’t open the room, but some strange power comes into her when she opens the door with her hands. However, the clever man escaped through another door. She quietly stands in the corner of the room so nobody can see her. All the guards have come upstairs to search the room, but she is right there, and nobody can see her. She keeps smiling, “Why have they held AK 47 in their hands? I wonder why is he afraid of it? Now I know why he could not take a stand when it was the time”.

  The guards have left the room. He enters his own room with a mixed feeling of fear and relief. He tries to grab his phone from the nightstand while she suddenly comes out of the corner. She sees his face turning gray again. She says, “Don’t worry, I am not here to kill you. Oh, I have already killed you when you have murdered me brutally. my soul is wondering to find the man I once trusted, and unfortunately, I still love him. The man I love is brave. Killing the weak man is not in my dictionary”.   Before she left the room, “You had abandoned me because of what people would say, the man turning 50 loves somebody and plans to marry her. You have left me because your sins so far have made you do it.”. Without looking at him, she leaves the house. Now she could see many guards trying to secure the house and other people waiting to meet him. But nobody could see her because she was not visible anymore. Her brutally killed soul often wonders to get answers to the questions. Her silent mind wanders around him because he is the love of her life not only from this century but also belongs to before and the afterlife. She silently crosses the road to reach her destination because her own people are waiting for her on the other side of the road
