"Are you sure you want to buy this, Sir?" The old shopkeeper asked me with a confused voice."Yes", I replied firmly. Enough of his crap myths. I am a regular collector of antiques and I know that the shopkeepers tell stories to customers to enhance the value of each and every object of their shops.Oh, by the way, I am 24 years old, a student of archeology. Antiques collection is not only my hobby, but my passion as well. Next week, I am going to be engaged with my love whom I met in my college in 1st year. We were in a relationship for 3 years, and finally we are getting together next week. She is also having interest in antiques just like me and I want to present something very special to her on the special day, hence I came to this antique shop to search for something suitable.My notice went on this silver ring. It’s a bit heavy. The ring is thick and it’s having something engraved on it. Looks like some old tribal language which is beyond the capability of my understanding. My observation tells me that it’s about a century old. I picked the ring and asked the old shopkeeper “I want to buy this ring.”“This ring is not for sell sir.” He replied. “Why not?” I asked.“It’s cursed. Earlier 2 customers bought this and returned it within three days. They said that this brings bad luck to the person who wears it”“Really? What happened?” I wanted to know.“One customer’s house caught fire on the next day. Another one’s son died of unknown reason. Both the customer blamed the ring sir. They said after wearing the ring, they had strange feeling that someone is watching them.”“Crap” I responded. I have seen these kinds of shopkeepers and heard hundreds of their stories throughout my antique collector’s life.“Not only this sir, the myth is that if you gift this ring to someone, then the giver will share the same fate with the receiver.”“Give me the ring. I’ll Pay double if you want” I am stubborn.
"Are you sure you want to buy this, Sir?" The old shopkeeper asked me with a confused voice."Yes", I replied firmly.The Silver Ring
“Wow! It’s beautiful. She said after the engagement party with an amazing smile in her face. “What are these writings on this ring?” she asked.“It’s written I love you. I’ll always be with you no matter what” I quickly made a fake translation to make my girlfriend happy.“Bye honey. See you in college tomorrow. Love you”. She said and steeped inside her car.I did not know that the tomorrow will never come. One hour later when I rushed to the accident spot upon receiving a phone call, nothing was left. Her car was smashed by a petrol truck in the highway and both the vehicle caught fire. I burst into tears but tears never brought someone back from the other world. Her body was badly burnt. Few moments ago she was my sweetheart. Now she is nothing but a burnt body which will never smile to me again.That night I went to her funeral. Her body was kept inside a white coffin and buried deep inside the graveyard land. I returned to my home with nothing but her memories. I was very tired. Physically and mentally. I started to weep. I don’t know when I fall asleep.
“…… It’s written I love you. I’ll always be with you no matter what……….”“………Not only this sir, the myth is that if you gift this ring to someone, then the giver will share the same fate with the receiver………”I woke up from the sleep. The two lines in my dream broke my sleep. Suddenly I realized that my room is too dark, too hot and I am chocking.I wanted to sit up but could not move more than few inches. A wooden surface is restricting my movement from all my sides.I turned on my digital wristwatch’s light by pressing my hand against the wooden wall. I froze in horror. I am inside a white wooden box. Closed from all sides. That’s why I am chocking.I know this box. It’s the coffin in which my girlfriend was buried. My soul is inside her burnt body. I am dying. I am 10 foot under earth in a graveyard inside a closed coffin, chocking without air.Before losing my last sense, I felt the ring in my finger which I only have given to my girlfriend this morning.“if you gift this ring to someone, then the giver will share the same fate with the receiver………”
