The devil's abode







The cemetery spread along the area known as Devils Abode in the hill. There lived a small boy, Arjun, in a house located very near to the cemetery. He was so afraid of the devils there and he won't even go anywhere crossing that. 

One day, he was forced to get a vegetable in a shop by crossing the cemetery. Because of his mother's compulsion, he need to go there. With lots of fear, he was ambling. Suddenly, he heard a terrible shout. He was so scared and started running. He could feel something touching his head continuously. Still more anxious and nervous, he roared and sat down. 

He could find some one shaking his body. Slowly he opened his eyes. His mother was standing beside. He realized it was leaves which was falling from the tree. The voice which he heard is his mother's scream to call him back as his father has bought the vegetable.

  3. Poor little guy, shouldn't listen to all those stories. Well done, never would've thought leaves falling from the trees could scare, but given the right place, and emotions, excellent way to tell a tale!
