Short story- Great Apartment???

I never had a good feeling about moving into this apartment and didn’t even want to move but it was my wife’s wish to get this one as it was big and spacious enough for all her stuff and it was cheap too… It was a great apartment according to her…

“Why a huge apartment like this is this cheap??” I kept wondering, I have seen enough horror movies to know the answer to this “why”

My wife thinks I am paranoid but I have experienced some unusual activities ever since we moved into this house, she never believes me though…..

But today I had enough, my four-year-old boy came running to me with a piece of paper in his hand and said something which frightened me.

“Dad look, I won first prize in an “Essay writing competition”, I have written about ‘Rony my new best friend’, who lives with me in my room, he is very good, we play all day, my teacher liked my essay a lot, look she has given me a star and smiley also”, he said while beaming with joy.

I told all of this to my wife when she returned from her office… She was looking at me with such disbelief, she was about to say something when I interrupted her and said-

“Look I know you will say children of this age tend to make an imaginary friend and I agree with you but the thing is our child did not have any teacher as he neither got admission in any school nor we ever mentioned anything such as school, teachers to him, So how did he know about one and even has a favourite teacher????” My voice shrieked as I was very scared and my heart rate was rising like crazy…..

“But Ryan I..”

“No, ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ honey, now this is about our child safety and no stupid apartment is bigger than that” I replied in a very stern voice…..

My wife who was also looking very terrified and was visibly shaking almost screamed-

  4. माना बच्चे का कोई दोस्त नही
    नही स्कूल उसका कोई यहॉ
    नही दाखिला मिला उसे
    नही अध्यापक उसका कोई यहाँ।।

    पर एकांत वास का साथी खुद
    खुद इंसान होता हैं अपना यहाँ
    देखे tv दिखे संस्कृति उसे
    साकार करता उसे यहॉ।।

    Nice story

  6. I did not see that surprise ending coming at all! Interesting story. I wonder then whether the apartment was haunted or if the speaker in the story really was just going crazy. The wife comes across as the non-believer here but maybe she’s secretly the sane one. Who knows?
