    My name is Vidhi Arya. This is my story. I, my parents along with my cousins decided to go for a picnic. We were to go to a resort called “Fariya’s”. My Cousins are Rohit, Shiva, and Suma. My naughty younger sister Misha was the 5th kid in the group. I was very excited about the trip. After getting ready we headed for the minibus that my dad had hired. In the bus we played some games. The trip to the resort ended very fast according to me. When we reached the resort it was like a fantasy palace. We saw our rooms and my mouth was hanging open. We freshened up and then went to eat some snacks. They were DELICIOUS!!!!


We played a lot in Sand Park and then we went swimming. The pool was OMG…… It had two pools, one had roll- a-coaster just like in fantasy stories. We played in the pool splashing water and swimming followed by water games in another heated pool. We were not ready to come out but we were almost 2 hours in water and it was time for dinner.


Dinner was a big spread of buffet. We ate, ate and ate. There were vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. I ate some ice creams at last. After dinner we again played in our room, I had carried some board games like Ludo, Chess, and UNO. We decided to sleep at 9ish as we all were very tired.


When I was sleeping at around 2.00 am, I heard a knock at our room door. I woke up and tried to wake up my dad. He said it was nothing and he turned around and went to sleep again. My younger sister and my mom were on another bed fast asleep, but I was really afraid. I lay on my bed eyes wide open, trying to sleep. Then after 15 minutes, I heard another knock at the door.


This time I shook my father hard and woke him up till the time he was awake properly. I told him about the knock. He said ok let’s go and see but he was convinced it was my imagination. He opened the door, I was behind him holding his pajamas tightly, and there was nobody at the door.


My dad took a couple of steps towards the corridor and checked further but again nobody could be seen. I was standing there next to him astonished. He looked at me, did not utter a word and then we came inside and went to bed. I was twisting and turning on my bed for the next 10 minutes thinking ------- was the knock real? After some time I fell asleep.


In the morning I did not tell this to anyone as I was embarrassed. Till date, I don’t know whether it was a real knock or my imagination. Did I imagine Twice? 2 knocks? Not sure…
