I was getting very bored sitting in my ancestral village. I had no frnds their and everything was very slow. I contacted my friends they told me many things to do but The thing told by one of them caught my interest. She told me to listen to folklore and pass the time. We all loved to hear spooky stories and that was what i wanted to ask the folks.
I went out myself and joined a group of people sitting and chitchatting. I went to them and we all started to talk about all that stuff ............. The stories were interesting and the time began passing too. Then as it became evening i excused myself from there and started proceeding towards my home. I was thinking of having some adventure here and i was thinking about the one which would be safe and enjoyable
Reaching home i had food and started thinking over the stories narrated by the folks. They were dam good in telling stories. I enjoyed it a lot. Later that evening i asked the maid there whether there all were true. She nodded in approval and told me to keep myself away from all this. This turned me on.
The next day there was a grand function at the PLANETARIUM GROUND. I decide to visit that place alone and through the HAUNTED LAL MARG.
The speciality of this road was it had only one way and both the sides were covered by a 7-8 feet wide walks. And behind those walls were the graveyard on both the sides. The folks said many stories about the LAL MARG And i wanted to find the truth. They had exaggerated its description and i suddenly felt attracted towards that place. I just wanted an adventure and i thought exploring it was the best i could get in that dam village.
My cousin came the next morning and i was happy that there is someone of my age who i know. I told him my plan to visit the planetarium ground through the lal marg and he agreed as he knew nothing about it and i too decide not mum tell him. As i thought 2 are better than 1
I spent the day thinking about what will happen tonight. I had made i a friend in the village till that time too. Suddenly a thought came to my mind - what if there would be nothing there. Oh i would just be a waste. So i told that frnd to come with us to using the same way but not along with us but by renaming some distance behind us.
He firstly was shocked by ma idea of even going through there but then i lured him too.I told him to come from behind and shout Suddenly So that my cousin will be scared. But he told if something happens then i told him as we will be in front that thing will happen to us. I told him about the power of god and also told him to remember him in such a case.Then i told him that we will start from our house at 8 30 and he must follow us.
Meanwhile my cousin told someone that we were going to the ground today through the LAL MARG. On returning i met that worker and he asked whether we were gonna do that. I told him he was joking and also told him not to worry. Told my cousin not to reveal our plans to anyone. He agreed and i was thinking about the adventure we were going to have that day
I reached home but my thoughts were stuck to the adventure of LAL MARG. I and my cousin got ready and had food. My mind was racing with imaginary situations which would happen. After the food, we both sat and chitchatted with the relatives. And then at 8 30 we both set out telling everyone that we were going to the planetarium ground to see the function. And So i was happy and full of excitement about my first encounter with ghost if It would occur.
Reaching the periphery of the road my cousin tripped and fell, breaking his ankle. It took some time to make him come to normal. I then giving him support entered the LAL MARG.Suddenly what a surprise.............. There was a middle age man standing there. He was there as if he was waiting for us. Reaching there he asked me ' hey u going to planetarium ground na.?.? I m gonna accompany you. I felt a shock of how he knew our plan, but my cousin was heavy so i was grateful that his weight on my arms would be eased due to this stranger. We started the journey.
Suddenly he asked us " hey don't you feel scared, roaming at this haunted place alone .?.?.?.?That too at night .?.?.?.?
We both replied
" this place is haunted !!!!!. Oh my god we didn't knew It "( i was acting in front of my bro )
Then he replied
"relax yar when i m with you none can harm you innocent boys"
His reply was soothing. He then began to ask about both of us and ...........
We told him everything.
By mistake my cousin blurted
"you villagers are So dumb you don't take care of anything, you know only to spoil. Unworthy idiots. Just so dumb. "
This provoked everything. Suddenly he was angry. His red bloodshot eyes showed no mercy. And he spoke
"what do you think you are very smart. You damaged our village. You are the ones only responsible for this. You turned this place into hell. Some people from the city came and killed me & owned my land by treachery. You made this street haunted. You city people don't deserve hospitality. You deserve anger, rage and corporate behaviour.
We were shocked to red him like this. The tone of his voice had gone too harsh and he was in no good mood. Suddenly my cousin saw his legs they were inverted. Seeing this he was scared to his wits. Even i saw and my condition was no better than him. The end of the road was little away and was visible. We started racking our brains when suddenly my cousin did start speaking " hey man book down i was just joking was testing your temperment. We were .....
The man spoke in betwen
"LIES U CITY PEOPLE ALWAYS LIE "YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THAT "
Suddenly some cars horn caught our attention it was from the opposite direction and my friends voice came from the other side. The man in the car was my uncle and i identified his car and then .............
Then everything was dizzy. My eyes adjusted to the light and i was seeing many faces in a blur surrounding me. Coming to my senses i saw That they were the faces of my relatives. I got up and asked uncle what happened. He told us he began searching us as we didn't upturn till 12 and then when he was passing through the LAL MARG he saw us both but as soon as he reached there we both fainted. I asked him did he see a man with us he nodded in disapproval and told him that my frnd too came from behind the same instant and he too didn't witness anyone.
Me and my bro knew that we were narrowly saved and the man disappeared into air. We were frightened to speak it to anyone and never ever will try going through there in our life.We had enough adventure for our lifetime. But now too the sentence repeates in our head in that harsh voice
"YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THAT "
