Hostel days are fun, till funny incidences happen.
Me, and a friend of mine had rented an apartment during our internship programme.
It had been ages since we had watched any horror movies. Scary stuff was not on my mind.
My friend was working the night that day.
I was in bed, ready to sleep.
I switched my night lamp on and turned off the tube light and got into bed.
After a while, the bulb of the lamp broke. Pure darkness surrounded me.
Next morning, I got a new bulb.
That night, it blasted again.
This happened thrice.
Some problem with the circuit, I suppose.
The bulb finally settled down.
And I fell asleep quite easily that night.
The door of my room had a latch on the outside. It was sometime past midnight, I think, that latch was banged very loudly against the door.
I woke up. And I could sleep the whole night. I thought it was my friend messing with me.
I confronted her the next day.
She said, it wasn’t her.
