It is 3 a.m. on a December night…
I wake up to go receive the call.
All doors and windows in my house are shut and my roommate is asleep in her room.
Halfway through my business, a door opens somewhere, slowly with an eerie sound.
Do I move out of the bathroom or not?
Finally, conjuring up the courage, I open the door.
And I scream.
I wake up.
I need to go to the loo.
My friend’s room is shut. She is sleeping.
There is no one else in the house.
Everything is silent.
I can hear the clock ticking.
And then, I hear the flush.
I am looking at the washroom door waiting for it to open.
And when it opens, I scream.
Now we are both looking at each other and laughing.
Nature can play tricky games.
