“Hey what are you watching?” A voice that came from the back startled me. It sounded like a female’s voice, not bright like a little girl, but it still had the sweetness to it.
It was strange. I was alone at home. My family went to Malaysia without me, there should not be anyone at home. Not only that, the question itself was strange. I was not on the computer, I was not watching TV, I was not watching anything in particular, I was just stoning on the couch.
As I turned around, I have both feelings of fear and happiness. Fear because I was uncertain if the person or thing that spoke was even physical. I had this thing for ghosts, I was extremely terrified of them. At the same time, I was glad that I wasn’t alone. Being the only one at home is really such a bore.
There was no one there.
Crap. I jumped out of my couch. What happened? I was still trying to figure out who and what had spoke when it spoke again, “Is watching this important?”
Our of fear and confusion, I shouted out into thin air, “Who are you?!”
“Does it matter who I am?” She or it replied.
“Where are you?” I asked while waving my arms around.
“Does it matter where I am?”
I freaked out. I ran out of my house.
As I ran to the park, I grew tired and started to walk. I gained composure and started to piece what happened altogether. Ok, a random voice just spoke, no body, no figure just a voice. I started to think of the possibilities.
Could it be a ghost? Well, he/she/it could have done a better job scaring me, I mean it(I am going to stick with ‘it’) did not even say anything really scary.
Could it be a friend that is trying to be funny and it was all a prank? Nah, that voice was very distinct and I never heard it before.
Could it be….
I did think for a good half an hour and I still could not come up with a proper explanation that made any sense. Now I am in a dilemma, I couldn’t go back home, I couldn’t go to my friend’s houses because what reason would I give them?
Luckily I brought my wallet out as I left, I could at least buy a drink and sit down at the coffee shop. So I stood up and directed my steps to the coffee shop.
“So what are you watching now?” The voice spoke out of nowhere.
“Oh my gosh!” I yelled.
“Wait wait wait! I do not mean to scare you!” Said the voice.
“Then what do you want?” I asked.
“To ask what are you watching” it answered.
“What?” The concept was just so silly.
“What are you watching?” It asked once again.
“NOTHING!” I exasperated.
The voice stopped.
