We are familiar with books and stories of paranormal and ghostly activities. I too, was fond of reading such books. Let me share one of my ghostly experiences. I chanced upon a book titled "The Theory of 3:00 am”. I started reading it before I went to sleep. I dozed off and don’t know how long I slept. Suddenly, with a jerk, my eyes opened; I glanced at my watch and realised it was 3:00am. I could feel the presence of heavy breathing in the room. There was no one else in the room. I started first wondering, then trembling in fear, but couldn’t even shout. After sometime, the breathing stopped and I fell asleep again. Later, when I woke up, I remembered the chilling experience and shivered. Afterwards, I had to go to a mall for some purchases, so I took a bus and reached there. I got off the bus near the mall and was walking towards it, when I slipped and tumbled into a puddle of mud. A drain was under construction there, and the recent rains had created big, muddy puddles. Then I slipped again, and fell headfirst into a ditch. All my clothes and shoes got dirty; they were covered with at least 20 layers of mud. At that moment, I heard footsteps approaching me, but I couldn’t see anybody. Suddenly, a figure with a black coat appeared to help me out. He reached out, and I took his hand. The hand was cold and clammy. I glanced up and saw a creepy smile on his face. I fainted instantly. When I woke up, I found myself lying in a hospital bed. Doctors and nurses told me that I had gone into a delirium. I had been shouting, "Go away! You ghostly man, never touch me again! I don’t want to see your frightening face!” After I was discharged from the hospital, I thought a lot about the incident. I replayed it over and over in my mind, trying to make sense of it. I noticed that the ghost’s creepy smile and his cold hands may have been side effects of being a ghost. He may have been genuinely trying to help me. After giving it more thought, I realised that the ghostly figure had tried to warn me against reading the book, "The Theory of 3:00 am”. Since then, it lies in the darkest corner of my cupboard waiting to be opened, but I know I am never going to flip through its pages ever again.
