A Diary





It was lovely morning  . The sounds  of  birds chirping and the commotion from the vehicles passing by, had awakened her. She rose from her bed, stretched and went to the mirror .She saw herself  in the mirror and felt something strange about her face. She then started scribbling in the  diary , which dated 13th Feb 2001. Writing diary is one of her favourite hobby and she does that every day, with out fail.


"It's my 16th birthday" She exclaimed to herself  “Hope I will have a good day ahead” .
She tied her long hair in an utmost fashioned way and excitedly went in to the bathroom . Though it’s her birthday today, She still have to go to school.Infact the thought of  school,has enthralled  her. She is so desperate to see all the presents from her friends. She then had a shower, dressed herself , packed the books back in to the bag . Suddenly the room is filled with delicious aroma of the dishes on the dining table.


“How thoughtful  Mom is, She really loves me a lot”  She exclaimed while she placed her bag on to the next chair


But she hadn’t seen her Mom yet, as well as her dad, her younger brother . “Oh! Dad must have gone to his work.My brother? I bet he is still sleeping.Mom surely went to market to prepare special food for my birthday” And she went on to dining room, to have her breakfast .


Right after finishing her breakfast , She approached her school bag ,which to her surprise is missing . “Oh! Surely I have  kept it here,few minutes before .Maybe someone is playing with me, must be my younger brother.He always makes fun of me” .  she entered in to her brother’s room to ask him about the missing school bag ,but she didn’t find him there. She thought that her brother is hiding somewhere and put some little play on her.She still have half hour to find him,she knew she can’t go to school without the school bag .


She looked around the house, checked every room, but no luck . She looked at her wristwatch “I still got 15 minutes, I have to find my brother, atleast my school bag .The school bus will be here anytime by now” 


She went back to her room and found the diary on the floor. She took hold of it, and placed it back on the table,Where she notices something strange about the diary .The diary looks old,as if it had gone through many years. "I bought this diary a month back.I remember, I saw it looking neat and tidy,earlier this morning” She thought . She opened the diary and dumbfounded by what she saw. The pages were yellowish, like the pages were decade old now 


“This can’t be!” She squalled 


She looks confused coz of what happening around her .Hoping to get some fresh air,she went towards the window and got the sight of newspaper delivery boy. She remembered the delivery boy, he used to bring the broadsheets to her. This isn’t him. He is someother guy.As the delivery boy looked at the window , fears written all over him .He stormed out of that place on his bicycle leaving the newspaper bundle then and there,in no time .He didn’t even looked back and the bundle of newspapers went unnoticed 


She realizes he’s not the one, who used to deliver the newspapes before,but why the sudden rush?
She goes outside, picked the newspapers and decided to get back in to the house.
As she enters in to the house, suddenly the room is filled with queer darkness.She then realized the tall trees sheltered around the house. She never seen these trees before. How could I get out and get in , even without noticing these trees.


She goes off to her bedroom ignoring these mixed thoughts ,still holding the bundle of newspaper.She fell her body on to the bed reading the newspaper.while she was reading the front page, something has strucked her.She was dumbstricken.


She hastily opens her diary ,it was dated feb 13th 2001 . but why the newspaper has the date feb 13th 2011 . “Is this a typographical error “?


“This can’t be!” She couldn’t believe her eyes and fell out unconsciousness

                                                       *    *     *

The youngman on the bicycle came home and his grandmother notices him petrified  and horrified . The boy explains to her what he saw , when he passed by along the road, Where the huge bunglow lies.

 “Oh!  So you saw Arushi!”

 “Arushi?”

 “Arushi have been dead for 10 years now .She was murdered on her birthday,the case has not been resolved yet .People say that every year she used to appear around her house ,on her birthday”

 “That’s really frightening, grand ma”

 “No! you shouldn’t be frightened, let’s pray for her soul, to be at peace.
