There was a small, beautiful bungalow on the seashore, where Jimmy lived with his wife and two cute children.
This bungalow was very old and was built during the Portuguese period, So the bungalow had Portuguese style stone carving. There was a garden in the middle of the bungalow and the head of their house had been buried there for a maximum of 100 years back.
A black stone table tomb was erected in his honor and a few words were engraved on it; that tomb was highly revered at that time. It was considered a historic tomb.
The family never visited their neighbours nor they invited them to their house. So far this family lived on the wealth of that chief. The family was bizarre and haunted. That is why people named the bungalow haunted.
Every weekend they used to perform black magic near the tomb. They were lighting lamps around the tomb, carrying lemons, etc, and worshiping the tomb. They thought they were all pleasing their chief. They were piercing the lemon with needles one by one and telling their chief to relieve their grief. For this reason, the chief’s soul was being harassed.
Music was being played to keep all this away from the neighbours. So the neighbours didn’t know what was going on in that bungalow. Later, a needle- pierced lemon was placed in a three-lane area. It is believed that anyone who crosses this lemon gets their bad wishes and these people get rid of the bad sign and gain prosperity.
Jimmy was a small businessman. Earnings were nothing but he was pretending to be earning more.
Due to COVID – 19 pandemic, people started spending more time at home. People stopped going out and shopping when there was no reason. Few lost their jobs and spent less money.
The storm of corona hit Jimmy’s life hard and fast. It was time to shut down his business. The business needed to be revived. At the same time, online business has gained momentum. In order to attract customers he started, offers like ‘Buy One Get One Free’. However, the earnings were small and the losses were high. He knew something had to be done as soon as possible. But he did not know what to do.There was a lot of stuff in the store that he had to put down quickly. He was selling the item for half the price. Even though he was not getting customers. Some of the things were getting rusty because the climate was hot and humid. It often occurred to him that it would be better to change the course of his business.
He could not keep a sales girl, so his wife used to go to his aid in the evenings and take the children with her.
One day, on their way home, they had a car accident. His car was hit by a tipper truck, shattering the entire family.
One evening, I was taking a walk on the beach, I noticed the light in the bungalow, so out of curiosity I went there to see, who was there in the bungalow. I heard the music as I entered the bungalow, but what I saw inside the bungalow was so frightening.
I saw the same family there. All their eyes were thin and reddish black. They all had their hair loose and dressed in white. All of them had long fingernails and blood in their mouths. All their necks were on the same side (turned to the left). The most important thing is that they were performing black magic and dancing around the table tomb. I was stunned by seeing that. My legs began to tremble and my teeth began to grind. Danger lighted in my mind.
In that situation, I did one Lanturne.
