“I fell sick that night….” the story teller continued grimly.
“Doctors could not analyze the cause of my fever, high fever. Grandma used to stay in my room all night.”
“That night she suddenly woke up feeling strange, as if something was really wrong…. When she looked at my bed she swore she saw a woman sitting beside me. In the semi darkness she could see that it was a very beautiful woman wearing the dresses of British Era notch girls… glittering lehenga (Indian long skirt), choli (top that comes with her), chunni (stole) and ornaments of pure gold studded with real gems! They were glittering in the moonlight that scattered on the bed, her hair was long and not braided, it fell all over her body like another veil, black one.”
This is from my collection of dark stories, in different shades of dark, but mostly without blood, gore, violence and especially erotics. 😉
