Dharan witch(churel)

"You're sure where we heading maika?"asked raunak .It's supposed to be somewhere nearby here according to this google map application"replied maika still surfing through his new bought iphone 6. Now before i continued with my story,let me brief a little bit about our main character here.Maika and raunak are two childhood friend who went to primary and secondary school together.Infact they live in a same neighbourhood and both of them share the same interest in photography for historical monuments and that sort of things.This interest took them to enroll in photography course at a local college.They been school buddies,now college buddies...First year of semester was all about theory,no a big deal..The real show was on second semester,when both of them were required to take photograph and collect detail about any historical places/monument for the preparation of the practical study and observation.They decided to go to dharan as it is the nearest site from their hometown and financial issue also play a little role in their decision as well.Back on the story,the bus stopped and the conductor yelling"Dharan! Dharan!,Dharan passengers please get down the bus,your destination is here"."So finally we did reach safe and sound huh"-teased maika. "Go grab your back and make sure all the things are there,you are not going to leave anything in the bus"-replied raunak while descending the stairs from the bus. "Yes sir,understood"-replied maika mockingly.. they were left at the hilltop of a village by the bus. "I was looking forward to have a bus stop here,but there is not even a lamp post here"-said maika while looking at the bus that soon disappear before their sight. "Im not sure,let's walk some distance and see how it goes-im sure that we are going meet somebody around here"-replied raunak while pointing to the village road .These two guys walked for nearly thirty minute,when maika begins sulking"I told you this is a bad idea,we should travel by car-but you insist using that stupid bus to save some pennies..And look where we are now,it's your fault"... As about raunak was to reply,both of them heard a voice calling them-"Hello there gentlements,good evening-who are you guys ,where are you heading to and what brings you here?" The voice belongs to a young girl,apparently aging around nine/ten years old,long untied hair,medium size body,two big black eye and a cute smile costumed in yellow-flowery pattern dress" although she seems normal,but there is something wrong with her,something that raunak felt was the time..It was ten thirty pm,and she is alone wandering the red soil road..but then raunak feel that since she belongs to a nearby village,she might used to it.. "my name is raunak and this is my friend maika,we are here for our college assignment,but we are seem to be lost"-said raunak. "The girl replied "dont worry,you guys can stay at my house for tonight,then you can go at the very morning tommorow,by the way my name is dakshina".. "Fair enough,thank you for the offer dakshina"-replied raunak,then they went to dakshina house-About ten minutes walking,they finally reach a big bungalow house. "Wow,what a great bungalow,i never seen any house like this-She must be a rich man daughter,don't she?"-maika whispering to raunak.. "Shut up maika"-said raunak and together they went inside the house,the house looks like a palace-a big chandelier at the centre,nicely decorated,red carpet on the stairs, and full of costly furniture. "Wow,the hall is so large and hey,they have a piano too".-maika said excitedly.. "your room would be over there"-said daksina pointing to the room.. "By the way,where are your parents dakshina?would they let us stay here for this night?"-asked raunak. "They are not here,they went to visit their relatives-out of town i guess and they left me with my grandmother,dont worry about her,she is sleeping upstairs"-replied dakshina.. "well if you said so dakshina,see you tommorow then-goodnight"-said raunak.. Both of them went to their room and dakshina went to hers. "Its quite dusty here and dark too-its make me creepy"-said maika... "we are not going to be long here-just couple of hours,now go get some sleep"-said raunak.. "as usual,before going to sleep-a ciggarete is a must"-said maika and thus lighted up his ciggarete.After that,he saw something that spooks him out,"wake up raunak! Wake up raunak!-said maika. "What is it?,can't we talk tommorow"-replied raunak. "Listen to me raunak,get up first you are lying down on someone's grave"-said maika.. "what"-replied raunak surprisingly. Maika was telling the truth,they were not in a beautiful and big bungalow,instead they were in a dark and big cemetery and their room were graves-just a moment before,raunak was lying on the grave thinking it was bed.Both of them knew that,they have been tricked by "churel"-(witch).Now,all thing star to make sense,why there a no cars in the garage,why is the only house in that area and why the house creep them although it look luxury,without wasting any time they ran away from the cemetery as fast as they could without carry their belonging along,hoping to retrieve it tommorow morning.The next morning,they came back to to cemetery and took their belonging back,they went to nearby village and tell the villagers all the thing that happened.The village folk said that a long time ago,there was a witch,who would trick strangers or travellers to her place telling those poir soul,that she would like to help-but at last killing those strangers/travellers and use their blood for the witchcraft ritual.When the villagers found out about this,they burned the witch alive in order to destroy the negative energy as well.The village folk also said that the incident which happen to raunak and maika was not the first time.Many have become the victim and they all have died mysteriously,only the lucky few escaped. After hearing this,both of them decide to make their college assignment at other place.On the way back to their hometown,raunak asked maika how he realise about the cemetery thing,then maika replied that-he just about to light his ciggarete,thats when the flash of fire changes the whole room view completely."sometimes ciggarete's saves life too"-joked maika
