Once upon a time, there were two fast friends called Mantika and Avantika who studied in the same class. They were so close that they did everything together. They are together, played together and shared secrets with each other.
One day they decided to visit the City Museum. But somehow they got very late. Soon it was time for the museum to close. The two girls decided amongst themselves to remain in the museum even after it's closed so that they could explore the place on their own. The girls, therefore, hid behind the huge antique shelf. The guard, therefore, could not spot them.
Now the story goes that the Museum was haunted. The management and the staff knew that. It was a very well kept secret. At night they would often hear weird sounds and thumping on the museum door. However, in the morning things went back to being normal
The girls were locked inside the museum and it was all dark. Avantika asked Mantika to turn on her phone's torch since her phone's battery was running low. Before Mantika could do that, they both felt a soft breeze touch their skin. And in the dim light of the phone torch, they saw the utmost bizarre sight.
The roof over the museum lifted a bit and started rotating clockwise. And then suddenly all the livestock in the Museum, lizards, rats, ants started matching in a row. A ladylike figure dressed in black was leading them. They went around the Museum as the girls watched all of this in horror. The troupe now reached the heavy museum door and started banging it. The guards obviously ignored these sounds. It was routine for them.
The girls passed the night praying to God, they thought did not exist. In the morning, the doors were opened and the girls rushed out of the museum. They went straight to the police station and related the string of events to them. The police were amused. They didn't believe any of it. The girls were sent back.
For a few days, the girls talked about the witch in the museum but no one believed them. They thought the girls were strange for they talked about strange things.
Some of those people also coined an appellation to denote the two friends who talked strangely. The appellation was: "Those two witches".
