Weekly Writing Challenge
One evening I was all alone, children have gone to play with their friends, and my husband still at the workplace.
I was roaming in my garden. After some time I went to a nearby pillar with a grape-vine surrounding it.
I kept my hand on the pillar. After a few seconds suddenly my sixth sense alerted me. I had an eerie feeling. There was a stillness in the atmosphere, everything was very quiet. Someone was watching me. If someone watches you intensely, you will find that your sixth sense will alert you.
I was not able to breathe, my heart fluttering badly. I don’t believe in ghosts or demons but for a second I thought what if all that is true. I could not move.
Slowly I turned my head looked towards my hand; just a few inches away two small frightened eyes were watching me. I discovered that it was a big fat green caterpillar. I felt ashamed of my behaving so childishly. Actually, it was more frightened than me.
Slowly I moved away from it leaving it to enjoy its meal.
Even after 35 years, I can still recall those intense eyes, still, I get nervous just by thinking of it.
Someone of you must have gone through this kind of experience. Please do tell me. I would love that.
