With the sound of water falling from the shower, he heard a soft whisper "I have been waiting for you for years...." He immediately turned off the shower, looked around waited for a second and wondered what it was… he shrugged his shoulder, took shower and came out.
“Ridhi, did you call me?” Questioned Jeeva, “no I didn't” she replied picking up her towel and said “now it's my turn” and walked into the bathroom... Jeeva sat down with the TV remote in his hand, as he tried changing the channels he heard the voice again "Rajuu…" Jeeva yelled “who is that?”.. “Jeeva, whom are you talking to?” asked Ridhi from the shower. “Nothing, I was on a call” he said, he got a little scared he immediately called the reception and asked them to allocate another room.
In few minutes someone knocked. Jeeva opened the door, a room boy had come to help them shift, he moved their luggage to room no 112, by then Ridhi finished her bath and came out. “we are moving to room no 112” said Jeeva, “why?” Asked Ridhi, “some problem with the AC” replied Jeeva.
As they moved into the other room, Ridhi grabbed jeeva’s hand and stopped him halfway “Jeeva, I left my phone in the bathroom, let me go get it” she said.. “No, you stay here I will go get it” said Jeeva and walked into room no 107 again, he got into the bathroom took his wife's phone, he heard the voice pleading to him, it said "Don't leave me again" a bolt of lightning went down his spine…. he bolted out of the room.
Jeeva went to room no 112, he sat down on the cot, lost in his thoughts... “Jeeva, jeevaaa!!!!!” screamed Ridhi. “yes tell me “replied Jeeva trying to regain composure ... I am Going to the reception to check if they can find a mechanic for us” Jeeva didn't want to leave Ridhi alone in the room, so he replied “let's check in the morning now let's sleep”.
Fiddling her phone for sometime Ridhi closed her eyes and slept peacefully. On the other side of the bed Jeeva was petrified about staying in that hotel, he was more concerned about his wife's safety. as time went on he figured that since he hadn’t heard any such voice in this room he figured out something fishy in room no 107, so he managed to get some sleep.
It was morning, both Jeeva and Ridhi got ready, they locked the door and walked out of the room with luggage in their hand... He made Ridhi sit at the lobby said he will go make the payment. Jeeva asked to meet the owner of the hotel. “It's me.. how can I help you?” asked the person politely ... Jeeva asked “what's the deal with room no 107?”. “Nothing.. what's the issue?” he asked. “I can hear some strange voice in the room, now if you don't tell me you can definitely expect to see some bad reviews online about your hotel”.
“Please don't, I am working hard to grow this place” begged the hotel owner. “then tell me.. what's the story?” asked Jeeva cocking an eyebrow. He took a deep breath "27 years ago, a girl was murdered in room no 107, my father used to say her soul is still in the room. It is been just 20 days since I lost my father, being someone who doesn't believe in ghosts made me open that room after all these many years, I didn't find anything strange so I gave the room to you, in fact you were the first person to stay in the room since the incident.
