I wanted to protect my sanity by walking away, pretend like nothing happened. Just a few steps, something made me to turn back one last time. What I saw will be forever stuck in my head. There stood the mansion, the same mansion that I saw a few days ago. I blinked several times hoping that I will see the cemetery but the mansion was still there. I closed my eyes for the longest time and opened them slowly, nothing changed. I looked around for the stranger, he was nowhere in sight. He had vanished in thin air. For some reason, I felt drawn to the gate, I knocked.
The same stranger that told me that there was no mansion but rather a cemetery was at the gate. I assumed he was the gateman since he was putting on a uniform.
“Good morning madam. Yuvrag have been waiting for you.”
Yuvrag? It was not making any sense. This whole thing was not making any sense.
“This way please.” He led me to the house. I was giving him uncomfortable looks but he acted normal, he was just smiling.
Once in the house, I felt shivers run down my spine. I didn’t know what to expect.
“It’s good to finally see you Doris, you are beautiful.”
Finally see me? We saw each a few days ago and he went mute on me afterwards and now this? I faked a smile.
“What do you mean, I was here a few days ago remember? I slept over and we had sex.
“You really need to snap out of it, we are meeting for the first time darling. I would never sleep with a lady on our first meeting, whatever you are smoking, please stop ”
I checked my bag, there was no any cash. My eyes widened. What the hell is going on? I checked my phone, I found the conversations. The last message was our agreement to meet. I tried to relax but it was not happening.
“Here, drink this. It will relax your nerves.” It was wine. I was having second thoughts considering what happened the last I drank it but something compelled me to drink.
The next thing I woke up in his bed, naked and I didn’t remember anything.
To be continued.
