Babysitting….

It was a Saturday night. I’ve applied a job on babysitting. So, I checked through my e-mail to know whether anyone could call upon me.

Just then, I got a mail from an I’d named Jake52.

He enclosed his house address and asked me to babysit his child for one day till Sunday evening. I asked for payment and he said he would pay me $100 for one day.

That was a good pay. So, instantly I agreed. He asked me to be present at his house within half an hour. So, I started from my house.

That place must be quite far away from my house. I should say. After travelling through a very creepy lonesome road.

I came to a mansion. Just then I got call from Jake.

“So sorry. We already left. But, my son is inside. So take care of him well. I will transfer the money to your account. Just make sure he eats at the proper time as we scheduled for him”,he said.

“No problem. You don’t have to worry. I’ve reached just now and I’ll take care”, I said.

Then, I got inside the gates of the mansion. Then,walked to the road. There was no other houses or stores nearby which made me think how could they live in such a lonesomeness.

I knocked at the door. Twice.

After a pause, somebody opened the door. It was a small boy. He looked pale though.

“Hello!. Your parents sent you here to babysit you. My name’s Violet”, I said.

“My parents sent you?”, he asked.

” Yes they did!”, I said.

“They told someone would come. But, I didn’t knew it would be this soon”, he said.

” Actually I’m a bit late and that’s why your parents left. Can I come in?”, I asked.

He looked up at me and opened the door fully. Then said,”Come in”, in a very pale tone.

When I went inside I noticed everything in the house looked so ancient. They must be from some royal background.

“Where is the kitchen. Have you ate something?. Let me make something for you. Ask me what you want”, I said.

” Well, I am not hungry now. Let us play for some time”, he said.

“Okay but your dad told me to feed you correctly”, I said.

“You don’t have to worry. He always says that. I’ll ask you what I want when I’m hungry”, he said.

Then, he went inside and came out with a board in his hands.

” What is this game?”, I asked.

“It’s a game called who? Killed who?”, he said.

” Mmm….Sounds interesting. Can you tell me the game rules?”, I asked.

He smiled widely at me and placed the board in front of me.

“There are three players. Two will try to go to the heaven at the end. But, one will try and kill the other two and drag into hell. The one who passes through all the obstacles and reaches heaven wins”, he said.

He took the dice and looked at me.

” Well, who is the third player?. There are only two of us”, I asked.

“There is a third player. He is sitting opposite to us. Can’t you see?”, he asked.

I froze at first. Then turned to see who was sitting before us. But, there was none. I’ve encountered such events in my previous babysitting experiences. One kid claimed there was a man in the hallway at the night. But, turned out to be their over imaginative mind.

I just acted along and said,” I can see him now. Let’s play”.

He smiled at me and handed dice to me and said,”You first “.

I gladly took up the dice and rolled them. At first I got a twelve.

” You can’t move the dice until you get one at first”, he said.

Then, I handed the dice to him and he rolled one. He moved his dice. Then, he asked me,”Look at him. He’s frowning. Thinking I might win”.

I just looked at the blank space before us and said,”Yes. Yes. I can see him”.

Then,he asked me to roll the dice. This time I got one. And I moved my coin.

Then,the boy rolled and got twelve. This time he said,”Oh no. I’ve entered near one of the Hell’s gate. It was a narrow escape”.

I smiled at him and we kept on playing. For about 16 minutes, we were playing dumb. I wanted the game to end soon. I was feeling so sleepy.

I decided to die and make him win.

When I rolled a two and entered one of the Hell’s gates…The boy seemed so happy.

“You made me so happy!!!. You made me go to heaven!!”, he said.

” I’m hungry right now. I’m so hungry!!!”, he said.

“Okay. I will go to the kitchen and make you something”, saying so, I went inside the Kitchen.

Just then, I got a call from the child’s dad.

“Hey how’s the kid?”, he asked.

“He is fine”, I said.

“Has he eaten anything?”, he asked.

” Just now making dinner”, I said.

“That’s great”, he said.

“Just one more thing. Why is he so obsessed with that game who killed who?”, I asked.

” What game you said?. I’ve not remembered him having such a game”, he said.

“Oh okay. I think I will leave by tomorrow evening 6 from cherry lane.”, I said.

“Violet, can you get out of the house right now?”, he asked.

“Why?. What happened?”, I asked.

” You’re on the wrong house Violet!!!. Our house was in Cherry road and you’re in cherry lane!”, he said.

Just then I turned to see the kid with pale black eyes saying, “I’m hungry!!!”.

Yazhi’s Pride ….

Recently, I came across an interesting topic. Which many of us isn’t know. It is the pride of Tamil Nadu and its even our rights to know about it.

Have you ever imagined taming a lion all by yourself?. Sounds crazy right?.

But, before centuries ago, our ancestors tamed lions, tigers and other wild animals as house pets. Yes, it happened. But, what I’m gonna speak about is even more fascinating and shocking at the same time.

Whenever you go to a temple,have you ever took glance at the pillar carvings there?. If you have, then you must’ve noticed a strange creature with a long tusk like Elephant’s and a face like lion above which a man would be taming?.

Yes,its YAZHI. A creature that lived centuries ago. When Lamoria(also called as Kumari Kandam) existed.

We all know that this island existing centuries ago. This creatures also lived there.

The most shocking thing to hear is that our ancestors, tamed them like a dog. These creatures are very large in size. One Yazhi is equal to 50 elephants. I’ve enclosed a picture of Yazhi below.

As you can see in that image, Elephants below are like a puppy in front of Yazhi.

And in another image you can see a man sitting above Yazhi and taming it.

You might be wondering how a man can tame such a big animal. Well, believe it or not, they tamed those animals with their inner feelings and minds.

More like hypnotising. Its obvious that Tamilians knew more techniques before technologies popped up.

Many don’t know about these Yazhis. Thought of sharing it. Later when the flood engulfed Lamoria inside the sea,most of these creatures drowned and died.

Some creatures which escaped this flood, couldn’t adapt with the upcoming evolution and eventually became extinct.

Proud to be a Tamilian and it is a right for every Tamilian to know about this creature.

Feel proud!!!.

The Evil Twin…

Three days. Only three days are left. I’ve to prove myself. I am a nobody right now. All I have is my pen and paper. If I let go of this chance I wouldn’t able to survive.
So, I started writing. I wrote my own encounter with something not quite human.
It all started a few years back,when I was in my highschool freshmen year.
My name is Kate. My dad and mom were of high standards and obviously I was popular.
Everything went well, till I met her…
Her name is Jane. I don’t talk to her a lot. But, people say weird things about her. I ignored all that thinking its just another one of highschool dramas. But, one day I saw her getting bullied by cheer leading captain. I went forward to help her.

Once the bully went away, I helped Jane get up . She smiled warmly at me and said, “Thank you”. From that day, I began talking with her. Eventually, I realised she wasn’t as weird as they say.
She is a good girl indeed. We became great friends after that.

After a few months, Jane stopped talking to me and ignored me. I was perplexed. I dunno the reason. Whenever I approached her, she would simply ignore me and leave. It hurt a lot but I decided to drift away and I convinced myself thinking she must be crazy or weird as they say. A few years later, a strange curse fell upon my family.

Each and every member in my family died in unnatural ways.
It made me more depressed. I couldn’t find out what was the reason behind that.
After two years, I lost all the members of my family, I got a phone call from a hospital.

The nurse said that there was a patient in the hospital who wants to see me so badly. I thought that might be any of my distant relatives, whom I might not know. I was so glad to hear that someone in this world is there for me. I rushed to the hospital and when I entered the room, I froze…

It was Jane. I was so happy and worried at the same time. Tears ran out of my eyes. I went forward and hugged her. “Where have you been?. Why did you ignored me?”, I asked anxiously.

” I’m….I’m so sorry Kate…I did something terrible to you!!”, saying so she cried out loud.

“What are you talking about??”, I asked.

” I am the reason for you to lose your family!!”, she said.

“WHAT??!!!”, I said that out loud in utter shock.

” Kate, I had a twin sister. We both loved each other a lot. Her name was Angie. One day, she died of cancer. I was so broken at that time and all I would pray was a chance for me to see my Angie again. But, when all my holy spirit hope went away, I did something which I shouldn’t have done….

I prayed to the demon!. I asked him to give me my Angie back. He did gave her back to me. But, she wasn’t the Angie I loved.

She was then under the demon’s spell. So, she tortured me a lot. She had forbidden me from talking to anyone. Even though she was evil, she would not let anyone else hurt me. But, when you helped me and when we were happy, she got jealous of us. She grew possessive of me. So, she asked me not to talk to you or she threatened that she would take away everything from you. So, I tried and avoided you. But, she then realised that she couldn’t separate our love for each other.

So, she killed everyone you had. I asked her to stop and she said,” I will spare Kate if you agreed to live by my side always” So, I agreed to that. I wanted to see you one last time and so did I called you. You won’t see me anymore…”, Jane said with tears filled in her eyes.

“No,no, no Jane. Please don’t say that. I don’t wanna lose you again”, I pleaded.

Knock!knock!.

I came back to present from flashback.
Someone knocked at my door. I paused my writing and got up to open my door.
It was Jane!. I was so happy to see her.

” Hey welcome dear, I was writing our story for my competition “, saying so I invited her inside.

Confused??. Well, after that day at the hospital, Jane was determined to let her sister sleep in peace. So she did every possible way and now she is free from Angie and we have each other now.

Jane took my writing and glanced at it.

“So, what do you think?”, I asked.

“Well, it is good. But, I would like to add something after this”, Jane said.

” OK. Go ahead!”, I said.

” After Kate left the hospital, Jane looked to her right side to see her so long gone sister Angie smile at her in a very creepy manner. Jane was so kind and she really did loved Kate for some reason which threatened Angie more”.

At this time, Jane’s tone grew really creepy.

She continued,”So, Angie decided to spare Kate if Jane traded her soul for Kate’s”, she paused.

“And, Jane gladly agreed. Jane is now in the hell getting tortured forever and Angie took her place to gain Kate’s trust to kill her!”.

I froze.

I lifted my head in fear just to see Jane’s eyes red as blood…
