Alina knew she saw something there, behind the curtain, a silhouette.
Something passed through Alina. She felt it. She could hear whispers in her ear.
Then she saw something. A moment later. It Disappeared in an instant.
She heard a knock behind and turned to see nothing.
She could feel someone breathing on her neck.
Just inches from her face Alina could see something standing in front of her. it had a head but no face. It was of humanoid form.
There was a flash.
She blinked and it was gone.
Her body was numb and she did not breath.
Suddenly she heard a thudding sound behind her. Like some one was running towards her. Then she heard a voice. Someone hugged her from behind.
“Alinaaaaa!, are you okay?, I heard something crashing and I found you here.”, Aruja said in concern
Alina took a big breath.
“We have to leave this place Aru, there is something here, something not human”, Alina was trembling now.
“What are you talking about?, What is not human?”, she clung to Alina’s shoulders.
She was not at all in mood that Alina was.
“Have you been taking those pills again?, they don’t seem to be working well on you, you should avoid using them”.
“No I swear I saw something with no face. It had no Facial features of any sort. It was just blank.” said Alina with her hands still shaking.
“I don’t understand, What Facial features?, are you sure really Okay Alina, dear?”. Aruja sounded worried.
“I am Fine!, Let us leave this place. Please I beg of you.” pleaded Alina.
“Okay Dringo you can come out now. She is really frightened now. The prank has worked is some way”,Aruja said with a tone of accomplishment.
“What the Hell?!, now get down off me Aru.”, she dug her face in the pillow sobbing.
Aruja climbed down from Alina’s shoulders and pulled Dringo from under the bed,”So much for your ghost makeup”, she said skeptically.
“I’m sorry Ali, It was just a prank.”,Dringo told in his most apologetic tone.
Alina Stood up and froze.
Both Aruja and Dringo had no face. They had no Facial features, no nose no eyes not even a curve.
It was blank.
She turned her head and saw her reflection in the mirror.
Her head was the same as her room mates’.
She had no Face.
There was a scream. But the scream could not be heard by anyone.
The human spirit which had just haunted Aruja was screaming but it was silent all around.
~interspecies haunting is difficult 😛
