The bell rang ring! ring! ring! ring! ring! and I was very excited to go home as it was the second Saturday and grandpa would tell us a story. I reached home threw my backpack and searched for grandpa but out of the blue, he was not there. I asked my mother about him, so she answered that he had gone to his friend's home and will be back soon. I bent out of shape and said "Oh no! more wait. I watched the paint dry till evening. I was eagerly waiting for grandpa, suddenly the doorbell rang I went to the door as quick as a flash but Alas! It was not grandpa, it was the neighboring aunty who came to meet my mother. Now I was like boiling water. Again the doorbell rang, this time I didn't go to open the door only. My mother opened the door, this time it was none other than my grandpa. I was as happy as a lark. My grandpa said, " Don't worry, today I will tell you a mind-bursting story". Hearing this I can't hold my horse. Everything was ready, popcorn, a cold drink, and us. Grandpa started the story. It was back in the old times when there were only a few railway stations. One day when a man named Roy was traveling a night journey, he had a dreadful accident. The train burnt out. Everyone was trying to save their lives but some of them kicked the bucket, Roy was one of them. He didn't die in a normal manner like others were burning and dying.
He was intentionally pushed by someone so that he can be saved. But Alas! The man who tried to save him was burnt due to saving him. Also, Roy was not saved as his head dashed with a huge stone, also there was a lantern in his hand which was given by the saving man. From that day no one can find his body there. People also told that he has not died and is leaving in the jungle and some told that he has become a soul, a bad soul!. But none was satisfying. It was known that soul saved many people's lives in several train accidents. Accidents happened every second and fourth Saturday night at the same place where Roy died. Once in a train journey at the same place where Roy felt, the train derailed. Everyone was in danger. Then all of a sudden everyone can hear the creepy sound from the nearby jungle. Like someone is walking on dried leaves. Then all saw a man holding a lantern, it was not a normal lantern it had no oil but still, it was lighting. Everyone gave it a cold shoulder except the train driver. It was the same driver who was alive in the burnt train accident. He knew that it was Roy. The train was again on the rail and the man went back step by step on the rail, holding his mysterious lantern. It was 1o 'O' and time for sleeping so grandpa left the story here. I was at the edge of my seat to know who was actually that person. It was Sunday the next day so it was the time to sleep like a log. We all went to sleep without wasting any time. At midnight when I woke up to go to the washroom. I saw that grandpa's room's gate was a little bit open and I saw that there was the same mysterious lantern with no oil and grandpa was missing, my all suspense was open, and was a nail biting for the next day.
