The old man

Author: Shreya Roy

My name is Shreya roy. I love in Orissa. It’s about the time when I was in standard 8. My school provided a coaching class which was till evening. Only special students were allowed in that class. I used to go to school by my bicycle along with my two friends who lived in my locality. That day my friend sayantika didn’t attend the class and my other friend Vaibhav was there with me. I told him to wait for me after the classes because at the evening time our locality was not safe and at the top of that some street lights were not working. But he didn’t wait for me and I had to go alone. When I was about to reach my house I was hoping to see atleast one or two people walking on the roads. Suddenly I saw an old man walking very far away from me. I was glad to see him but when I went a bit forward,the old man was no where to be seen. He just disappeared in thin air. I still wonder whether it was really a spirit or I was paranoid.
