The Mystery 03
I felt unusually tired, strange because I had just woken up. I looked over at Yuv, he seemed to be busy with some paperwork. I didn’t want to disturb you so I went back to sleep.
I found myself in a cemetery, a strange cemetery. There was total darkness with an unsettling aura.Of course a cemetery is supposed to feel that way but this was different, there was more. Tombstones suddenly opened, all of them. What I saw will forever haunt me. I saw Skelton’s dripping blood. I wanted to shout but my voice couldn’t come out. I tried to run, my legs couldn’t do me justice. The Skelton’s started walking in my direction busy enchanting things I couldn’t understand.
One of them was about to grab me by the neck when someone shook me vigorously . It was Yuv and I was in his comfy bed.
“What happened to you ?A bad dream ?”
I couldn’t remember any bad dream but whatever happened while I was asleep scared me to the core. He gave me a glass of water to calm my nerves.
“Thank you .”
“I should take you home Doris .”
“Yes you should, Sharon is probably worried about me. How long have I been here for ?”
“17 hours .”
“Flip, I got to go.”
“Yes, I will drop you off.”
I took a quick shower as Yuv waited for me. After I was done, we left the house. We got to the garage and got in his black jaguar. The gateman opened the gate for us, as we were taking off, I was looking at the gateman. I almost jumped off my seat when I saw a reflection of a skeleton on him. Yuv stopped and looked at me.
“And then ?”
“It’s…it’s nothing, I just had a reflex .”
“Are you sure you are fine ?”
“I promise .”
We drove out with a lot of unanswered questions in my head. I swear I was going paranoid.Yuv left as soon as he dropped me. He didn’t even come inside, talked something about being busy and all. He gave me MK200 grand to spoil myself since he couldn’t take me shopping.
“I got MK200 grand girl , nigga is loaded,” I screamed as I got in the house,interrupting Sharon from her sweet sleep.
“Another MK200?” She asked excited.
“What do you mean by another ?” I asked confused.
“Girl, you brought MK200 grand from him 4 days ago.”
“What are you talking about ? from who ?”
“Are you drunk ?”
“Do I look drunk ?”
“No, you are sounding like one .”
“Okay I don’t know know what you are talking about but I went to see Yuv for the first time 18 hours ago and he gave me this money .”
She looked at me blankly.
“What? You think I stole this money ?”
“No, you met Yuv 4 days ago and he gave you Mk200 grand, I even saw his car when he dropped you off. He went silent on you and yesterday you went to get closure and you come back with another Mk200.”
It sounded funny since I couldn’t remember anything. All I remember is that we have been talking and I went to see him.
“Doris are you okay?”
Was I okay? okay was an understatement, I was confused. I took a cider in the fridge and dawned it down.
“You didn’t even tell me that you are sleeping over .”Sharon continued.
“Just stop, you are making my head spin with your imaginations !”
I threw myself on the bed and it was blackout for me.
To be continued.
