It was a very cold night and it was raining very heavily, through the windshield of his car Rohit could see the road, as sheets of water hit the empty road, he was driving carefully at a steady speed when a woman suddenly came out of nowhere and stood in front of his car, he stopped his car instantly. Rohit could hear his heart pounding, She came to his side and tapped on the window, he rolled it down, then she asked him can you give me a lift, Rohit was angry but had no other option, he opened the back door and asked her to get in. He turned to look at her, in the light of the car he could see her, and also smell the fragrance of jasmine flowers, where do you want to be dropped he asked. "Near government hospital she said. My son is admitted there, accident case hit and run. I am sorry he said, I am sorry too, to stop your car suddenly, but I had no choice, It's Ok he said and started the car, who could she be, he thought, Fifteen minutes later he reached government hospital, Rohit unlocked the rear door, she got down and tapped the window he opened it she bent down a little and thanked him, he watched her as she crossed from the front of his car and crossed the road to her destination. He started the car, he was in a hurry to reach home. Rohit was staying alone in his own house, in an exclusive locality, he was a successful business man, After driving for another half an hour he reached home. He parked his car and curiously looked into the back seat, he paused not a drop of water anywhere, he shook his head in disbelief, the rain should have drenched the women, but instead, the seat where she sat was dry, he entered his house, then locked the door changed into his nightclothes and crashed on his bed he felt tired went to sleep immediately.


The woman had followed him, she entered the house through the bedroom wall and sat near his bed looked down on him, then left as she had come through the wall. After going some distance she was joined by her son and together they started walking towards the graveyard. Nightcrawlers who saw them wondered why the boy was wailing so much. It was kind of mournful and the sound was carried by the night.

Rohit got up from his sleep and stared at the ceiling, and for a moment he thought of last night, then he could smell the faint fragrance of jasmine, he sat up and looked around, he was imagining things he thought, The whole day kept him busy, he was in real estate so he had to attend to a lot of clients meeting, Everything was done from home, it was late in the evening when he finally winded up. Then going towards the bar he opened a bottle of scotch and relaxed, he had ordered food, he watched the news, After some time the order was delivered, It was about ten o clock that he went to sleep. Rohit's sleep was interrupted by someone crying outside his house, he listened for some time, He wanted to check, getting out of the bed he opened the door and got the fright of his life. It was the woman who stopped his car she was standing with a young man, it he who was crying, She came forward and both of them entered into his house, Rohit followed them, He sat on a sofa, she did the talking, he was shivering in fear, don't be afraid we will not harm you, We are dead souls, We want revenge, all the while the young man was wailing, The woman said, he is my son, we both died in an accident, hit and run, He got away, I now know who did it and you will kill him, just like he killed us, he will die the same way, Tomorrow at midnight you will come to the graveyard, there are others too who want revenge, they are waiting outside, I will tell you what to do, once you reach the grave yard. We are leaving she said, then in front of his eyes, they both exited through the wall. He could not get up he was paralyzed with fear, He was not dreaming of that he was sure, he managed to get up and went towards the door to close it, he looked outside, there were others too,who were standing on the road leading to his house, white ghostly figures staring at him. He closed the door hurriedly, went towards the bar and had a neat shot, went back to sleep, but sleep evaded him, later much later he went into a fitful sleep. The next day, Rohit got up with a headache the events of the last night played upon his mind, was he hallucinating or was it real, the fear of the unknown preyed upon his mind, His belief in ghosts had always been skeptical, but now he had to believe in their existence. The woman had told him to come to the graveyard at midnight, he could remember the dead people who stood before his house, He felt a kind of terror but he knew he had no option, but to kill another human being. At midnight carrying a small image of Lord Ganesha which he always carried, he drove towards the graveyard, There was only one graveyard near his house. He stopped his car on reaching, He was shivering with fear, The gates were closed. Then he could see them coming from inside the graveyard, led by the woman, she stood in front while the other undead stood behind her, it was a strange scenario, all these ghostly figures staring at him. All these people were killed like me and my son, there are six of them including my self and my son, We are coming with you, and each of us will draw out our killers, all you have to do run over them and kill them. The woman seemed to be discussing the weather for all she cared. Dont worry about cc cameras she said, we will create a mist over the entire city which will give you cover . We have the power, You mean he said in a voice shaking with fear, I have to kill five people, Yes she said, but dont worry you will not be traced to these accidents. Why are you doing this to me, I have nothing to do with your death, there was no answer from the woman, she just said when they die we will be free, when we are free then you will be free too.

The woman and all of them got into his car, First my killer she said, I will bring him out of his house, all you have to do is to drive over him, Then mysteriously a mist started enveloping the area. The victims were all brought out by the undead in a different areas and he felt he was in a surrealistic world, ran over all of them, as each of the victim was in their night dress brought from their homes by the ghouls. Five murders' he thought in fear. Rohit came back to the graveyard they all got down one by one then disappeared into thin air, all the while howling and laughing in glee,  he sat there shaking with fear, and crying. The mist started to slowly leave the city, He started his car and reached his house, entering, he went directly towards the bar, where he opened a bottle and made himself a large peg and downed it drinking continuously he fell down on the floor totally sozzled. The next day he got up and felt groggy and light-headed, he headed towards the bathroom, stood under the shower. Later on, he ordered breakfast, then opened the Newspaper, It was there on the front page, he read "yesterday night  five hit and run cases took place in the city, the unusual thing at the time of these hit and run the cc cameras could not catch any images, as a heavy mist enveloped the city during the night, and what is even stranger is all these people who were killed  in different areas of the city were in their nightclothes" the police are looking Into it. Rohit kept down the paper, That night he slept peacefully, but the next day there was a message written on his bed room wall which went thus. we the people whom you killed were here in your house at midnight all of us. And we wrote the message on your wall follow it, don't ignore it. And the message read, You have killed Us, Thought You Would Get Away with it, Come To The Grave Yard at Midnight, Meet Us, You will Kill All Those People Who Did Injustice To Us, If you Don't Come We Will Come To Your House And Take You and expose you.
