The Strange Library

I WAS ON MY WAY TO THE LOCAL LIBRARY. IT WAS A RAINY DAY BUT I STILL WENT OUT BECAUSE I WAS FEELING SO SAD AND GLOOMY, SO AS TO GET A CHANGE OF MOOD.

WELL, I DIDN'T HAVE A MEMBERSHIP CARD, SO I GUESS I HAVE TO GO FOR ONE FIRST. I ENTERED THE LIBRARY AND FOUND AN EMPLOYEE, WHO WAS PERHAPS IN HER MID 40'S.

I WENT TO HER AND ASKED HER THAT HOW COULD I HAVE MY LIBRARY MEMBERSHIP CARD. SHE STOOD STILL AS IF I CASTED SOME SPELL ON HER. I STOOD THERE DOING NOTHING BUT GAZED AT HER IN AWE.

BUT, THAT WASN'T FOR THAT LONG, SHE QUICKLY PUT HERSELF TOGETHER AS SHE CAME BACK TO HER SENSES. "IS THERE ANYTHING WRONG?", I ASKED.

BUT, I GUESS THERE WASN'T, AS SHE JUST TOLD ME TO WAIT THERE AND DISAPPEARED BEHIND THE VAST BOOKSHELVES. I THOUGHT THAT, PERHAPS, SHE WAS HAVING THE SAME GLOOMY MOOD THAT I HAD.

AFTER A FEW MINUTES, WHEN I WAS DONE WITH ALL THE FORM FILL UP AND SIGNING PROCEDURES, I WENT TOWARDS THE BOOKSHELVES TO PICK A FEW BOOKS, TO REFRESH MY MOOD.

WHILE I WAS WANDERING ABOUT, I NOTICED THAT A FEW EMPLOYEES, CUSTOMERS AND EVEN THE LIBRARIAN WERE GLARING AT ME AND WERE EVEN GIVING A MOCKING SMILE. I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON.

CONFUSED, I HEADED STRAIGHT BACK HOME FROM THE LIBRARY. I JUST COULDN'T UNDERSTAND ANYTHING. THE DAY WENT BY AND I SLOWLY FORGOT ABOUT IT.

AFTER A FEW DAYS, I WENT UP TO THE LIBRARY AGAIN. AS SOON AS I ENTERED, I HEARD MUMBLING SOUNDS ALL AROUND ME. I JUST TURNED A DEAF EAR TO THEM AND WENT ON DOING MY WORK.

EVERYONE AROUND ME SEEMED TO BE SUSPICIOUS. I HEADED OUT OF THE LIBRARY AND WAS WALKING BY THE ROAD. I THOUGHT OF GRABBING OUT A BOTTLE OF COLA TO SUPPLEMENT WITH MY EVENING SNACKS.

NO LATER, I FELT AS IF I WAS BEING STALKED.I TURNED AROUND BUT THERE WAS NO ONE. I KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG. I STARTED TO RUN TOWARDS A RANDOM DIRECTION.

FOR, DIDN'T WANT THE STALKER TO KNOW MY ADDRESS, SO I JUST STARTED RUNNING IN A RANDOM DIRECTION. AFTER RUNNING FOR WHILE, I REALIZED THAT I WASN'T BEING FOLLOWED ANYMORE.

I WAS OUT OF BREATH SO I JUST CALLED A CAB TO GO HOME.

ITS BEEN A FEW DAYS AFTER THE INCIDENT, BUT I'M STILL BEING STALKED AT TIMES. I WAS SO DEPRESSED THAT I WAS SUFFERING FROM INSOMNIA. I DECIDED TO REPORT IT TO THE POLICE.

WHEN I WAS ON MY WAY TO THE POLICE STATION, I WAS STILL UNASSURED IF I SHOULD REALLY REPORT IT OR NOT.

JUST THEN, MY EYES FELL UPON THE LIBRARY AND, PERHAPS MY SIXTH SENSE TOLD ME THAT THE LIBRARY HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH MY STALKER. SO, OF COURSE, I WENT THERE, BUT, THIS TIME IT WAS SERIOUS.

NO ONE WAS AT THE LIBRARY. I WENT AROUND TO LOOK FOR THE OTHERS, THAT'S WHEN I STARTED HEARING WHISPERS. I GOT SCARED.

IT GREW MORE AND MORE AWFUL THAT I COULD HEAR PEOPLE LAUGHING AROUND ME, BUT MOST TERRIFYINGLY, THERE WAS NO ONE THERE. THE LIGHTS WENT OFF AND THE DOORS WERE BEING CLOSED.

I FAINTED AT THIS SIGHT.

"MR. ANDERSON, ARE YOU FEELING ANY BETTER?" THIS WAS THE FIRST THING I HEARD WHEN I REGAINED CONSCIOUSNESS. I SLOWLY OPENED MY EYES ONLY TO FIND THAT, I WAS IN A HOSPITAL. "WE ARE SORRY MR.

ANDERSON, WE HAD NO IDEA THAT A MERE JOKE WOULD HAVE RESULTED INTO THIS...." I STOPPED HIM,"WHO ARE YOU? WHY AM I HERE?" "WAIT.... MR. ANDERSON DON'T BE SO EXCITED....

PLEASE TRY TO STAY AS MUCH CALM AS POSSIBLE."

"WELL, MR.

ANDERSON ITS MY FAULT" THE LADY STAFF WHOM HE INQUIRED AT THE LIBRARY ON THE RAINY DAY, SAID,

" IT WAS RAINING HEAVILY ON THAT DAY SO I TOLD EVERYONE THAT NO ONE WOULD COME TO ISSUE A MEMBERSHIP CARD ON THAT DAY BUT, THE OTHER EMPLOYEES CHALLENGED ME AND SAID THAT IF ANY ONE COMES,

THEN I WOULD HAVE TO SCARE HIM/HER OFF." SHE CONTINUED, " NO SOONER, WE WERE JUST DONE WITH OUR CONVERSATION, YOU CAME UP TO ME AND ASKED FOR THE PROCEDURES OF ISSUING A MEMBERSHIP CARD.

SO, THAT'S WHY......"

" CUT THAT CRAP! DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW MUCH I WAS SCARED BECAUSE OF YOU AND YOUR DAMN CHALLENGE ? I WAS SUFFERING FROM INSOMNIA AND HAD LOST MY APPETITE."

"OH MR. ANDERSON HOW ABOUT WE GIVE YOU A VIP MEMBERSHIP CARD FOR A YEAR FOR FREE?" THE LIBRARIAN SAID.

"OH MISTER, I JUST FAINTED OUT THERE. ITS NOT THAT I HAVE LOST MY MIND THAT I'LL GO TO THAT STRANGE LIBRARY OF YOURS EVER AGAIN!"
