Recap-Laksh and the ghost had a quarrel. Later, Ragini entered in the house.
I leaped from my chair unaccustomed agility and sprang in front of Ragini. I must conceal that awful phantom from her, at any risk!
She did not look at me, or–thank heaven!–behind me, but fixed her injured gaze upon the waste-basket, as if to wrest dark secrets from it.
“I have come to tell you that I am leaving,” she had spoke in a detached manner.
“Oh, yes, yes!” I agreed, flapping my arms about to attract attention from the corner. “That’s fine–great!”
“So you want me to go, do you?” she demanded.
“Sure, yes–right away! Change of air will do you good. I’ll join you presently!” If only she would go till Sharmishtha could depart! I’d have the devil of a time explainig afterward, of course, but anything would be better than to have Ragini see a ghost. Why, that sensitive little woman couldn’t bear to have a mouse say boo at her–and what would she say to a ghost in her own living-room?
Ragini cast a cold eye upon me. “You are acting very queerly,” she sniffed. “You are concealing something from me.”
Just then the door opened and Sumitra called, “Mis’ Maheshwari! Mis’ Maheshwari! I’ve come to tell you I’se done lef’ dis place.”
Ragini turned her head a moment. “But why, Sumitra?”
“I ain’t stayin’ round no place ‘long wid dem Ouija board contraptions. I’se skeered of hoodoos. I’s done gone, I is.”
“Is that all you’ve got to complain about?” Ragini inquired.
“All right, then. Go back to the kitchen. You can use the board for kindling wood.”
“Who? Me touch dat t’ing? No, ma’am, neva!”
“I’ll be the one for doing this menial job to burn it,” I shouted. “I’ll be glad to burn it.”
Sumitra’s heavy steps moved off kitchenward.
So guys, here is the second last shot. Plzzzz do tell me how was it? I am waiting… Love u all a lot 😘😘😘
