Write a story with the ending, "From that day onwards, I never went out alone."

 

"Freeze! Don't you dare walk out that door, young lady!" The hard tone of my mother's voice was enough to make my skin crawl.

I was about to visit my friend, Rohana who lived about four kilometers away. I decided to use a short cut to reach her house. The short cut was actually a small path cutting across a rubber plantation. It was rumored that a murder had taken place there a long time ago.

By the time I had finished convincing my mother that the route was completely safe, night had fallen. The shadows gathered about the bushes and the ara trees which dotted the way. In spite of all the ominous warnings that my mother had given me, I was confident that I would turn up at Rohana's house in one piece. I heard two owls hooting at a distance from where I was walking. I religiously kept to the path and did not turn back. My heart was pounding and I fervently wished that I was back home safe.

The moon was high up the sky, illuminating the path with her soft, silvery light. My palms were sweating and I quickened my steps. I imagined 'ghosts' lurking behind every rubber tree. I tried to calm myself down by telling myself that I was paranoid and that ghosts did not exist.

Suddenly, I heard a loud moan coming from behind the rubber trees to my right. I was in a dilemma whether to help the poor soul or to run for my life. My conscience got the better of me and I mustered all my courage to help the unknown person. To my surprise, I pulled out a young woman.

She was about twenty years old and had long, flowing hair.

"My name is Magdalene," her voice was soft and mellow. Her skin was very pale almost as if she had bleached herself. Her eyes betrayed pain and anger. Somehow, her unnerving gaze chilled me to the bones. Her dress was bloody and her face was full of scratches and cuts.

"Perhaps I should take you to a clinic," I said cautiously.

She declined my offer and decided to follow me to Rohana's house. She began telling me about a murder which she had witnessed two years ago. It seemed that a young lady about her age was taking a short cut across this plantation to visit her aunt when she was murdered by an escaped convict. The convict dragged the girl to the bushes and left her there. Her description of the murder was very precise to the smallest detail. She said that the girl was stabbed five times and the girl died in agony.

I noticed her dress was getting redder and redder by the minute. Her cold and clammy hands clutched my wrist tighter. I asked her what had happened to her.

She answered, "Murdered people bleed to death."

I screamed and ran back home. I fainted at the doorstep and was down with fever for three days. One encounter with a murdered ghost was enough for me. 'From that day onwards, I never went out alone.'
