The movement outside kept on getting suspicious with each passing day, however today it seemed calmer.
Although the weather is kind of different. During winters we see windy and stormy weather. But it looks like a Blizzard, a snow storm is about to happen. That might be the reason why the area has become quiet. There are many warning stickers on television also by the weather department to stay indoors. Hopefully, I will sleep well tonight, without having goosebumps. Thought Miss Morris. To herself.
“Diiiiing dongggggg, Diiiiiinnnnngggggg Doooongggggg” the door bell was screaming along with loud and hysteric banging on the door.
‘Who the F*ck is here at this hour of might’ miss Morris moaned
‘Don’t break the door, I am coming’, she screamed.
The blizzard already seems started, there was no electricity. That increased her difficulty in reaching the door. With a small battery-operated emergency light, she finally reached the door. Thankfully, the lamp is fully charged, God knows when the electricity will be restored, she thought and screamed from inside, ‘who is it? What do you want?’. No one answered. But the banging continued. Finally, she gathered courage to open the door, the unexpected guests at this time of the midnight were standing in the dark. They were in rush to get inside the house.
Anokhi and Mahi, getting impatient to get inside the house of Miss. Morris. They simply pushed her back, get inside the house and locked the door in possible places. Before Miss. Morris could understand the Mother-Daughter duo were inside her house. They looked messed up, due to standing in the storm for sometime.
‘What are you doing here? What’s wrong?’, the surprised and baffled Miss Morris asked.
‘I am so sorry, but please let Mahi stay with you tonight. It’s her…’ Anokhi stopped in middle of her sentence.
“what’s going on mom, what was all that?”, screamed Mahi. ‘Why have we come here? This all is so crazy’, she continued in the same tone. Mahi otherwise was a well-behaved kid.
Recovering from the initial shock, miss Morris quickly said. “Hello ladies, can I know what it is all about? Why are both of you here at this time?”
‘It’s my birthday today, Miss Morris’, declared Mahi. She is turning 13 today.
Just then a flash of light stuck the door, as an intuitive move Anokhi too out a stick like hair ornament, which until now held her hair in a bun. Was actually a real Wand, yes a witches wand. She waved her wand and responded the attack, and kept on continuing that for a while.
‘Miss Morris, take care of my daughter tonight. She is innocent, she doesn’t know anything’, urged a mother. She was scared and wanted the child to be safe.
‘She doesn’t know anything? What do I know? Anokhi, are you a real witch? Like the one in stories and movies?’ asked the curious Miss Morris
But there was no one to answer, except the frustrated teenager. Anokhi had already gone back.
Miss. Morris has mixed feeling. Her suspicion was coming true, that there is some mystery with Anokhi. However, she was even scared a little bit, now that she knows the truth.
‘It’s going to be a long night it seems. It is just beginning of the storm.’ Mahi and Miss. Morris were thinking the same.
