The night was dark and silent. Martha was late, she had just managed to finish her work at the Mansion. Hurriedly, she was walking towards her little cottage across the old cemetery. It was cold, and she was shivering as she walked and was about to reach the boundary wall, she could see a shadow. Martha was getting cold but she walked bravely to this shadow man.
Man, ” Hi. I am new here can you help me please?”
Martha,” I am in a hurry. What do you want? What are you doing here?”
Man,” I was buried here, a few hours ago. I am feeling cold and hungry.”
Martha was frozen like ice. She was trying to think, but fear was over coming all logical thoughts.
Ghost, ” Are you afraid of me?”
Martha, ” I ..yes..so what?”
Ghost,” Please don’t be. I mean no harm. Didn’t you watch Casper..the friendly ghost. Think I am like that”
The ghost extended his hand to shake with Martha. They shook hands and Martha started to feel better. They now walked together towards her cottage.
Martha,” Do you want to eat?”
Ghost,” Yes. When I was killed. I was about to have my lunch.”
Martha,” What would you like to eat?”
Ghost,” How about..hmm a bread with butter?”
Martha,” okay. What is your name?”
Ghost,” I am Jim Morgan. “
Martha,” You said you were new here. So, are you from and how did you reach here?”
Jim,” I came to deliver the sofa set. I wanted to eat, so I parked my van at the roadside. And wham! someone just ran over me. There were four men, they carried me to this place ..I mean there and left me.”
Martha gave Jim a bread, but he couldn’t eat it and felt sad. Next morning Jim was gone. Martha told this episode to everyone she came across but no one believed her. After finishing her work as she came out from the Mansion, lo! Jim was waiting for her with a smile. hence, they became good friends and soon they got married..well technically 🙂
Martha and Jim had four daughters. All her pregnancies were invisible by day time and visible only at night. She was now very happy, her children were also like their father. They never ate anything. As, Martha grew old the daughters grew up as beautiful young women.
The family would go for outing at night only. Martha got the name of old maid with tales in her head, but she didn’t seem to care. Martha was happy with Jim. One day, as she got up with sunrise her family didn’t disappear, she was happy and wanted to know why.
Jim,” Martha, my love look…”
Martha looked and saw her dead body lying on the bed.
She had died.
Her daughters now live in the cottage and lure young men to be their partners . The villagers are upset and want to burn them, but the four witches got power from the day and night..So, its tricky to catch them. Many people tried but all failed.
The old wise men decided to cage them within magical rays. Only the great Evil can enslave them and put an end to the disappearance of the young men from their village.
That night Martha and Jim felt helpless and sad, when their four daughters were caught with powers from the dark side and given to the all Evil..he will eat them and get their powers as additional strength to his evilness.
