A Few Months Ago

The Walter Mine Factory area looked very busy even though it was past 8 PM. The night shift workers had already started entering the factory's foyer. A blue-colored vehicle with the words 'Workers Bus' came in and out to drop off the factory workers who would start their shift at 9 PM.

Irna and Yati immediately packed up and walked out of the factory as soon as their shift had ended.

"Ah! What a relief. I want to go back home and shower," said Yati. She squirmed and did some stretching. She started imagining the bathroom in her house.

"Have you forgotten that we had promised to go to Embak Limah's house tonight? The dresses are ready."

"Oh, yes! I've forgotten that."

"So what are we waiting for? Hurry up! After that we can go straight back home," urged Irna. She could not wait to leave the noisy factory.

"Okay. Let's go!" Said Yati. They moved together and finally reached a bus stop.

"Now, where's the taxi?" complained Yati after waiting for some time.

"At this hour. Are you surprised?"

"Should we call a taxi?" Suggested Yati. 

Irna took out her mobile phone and tried to call the taxi service centre. But she failed to connect. She checked her credit balance and it seemed that her phone credit usage period had expired."

"My credit has expired, Yati. Use your phone first."

Yati reached into his denim pocket and checked her mobile phone.

"Damn! No battery" said Yati.

"Out of any day, why today, Yati?" Said Irna

"I hope the workshop they can get the repair work done by tomorrow. It's hard to live without my motorbike."

Irna could only respond with a smile, a wry smile. 

"Look! There's a taxi...." said Yati while waving her hand as soon as she saw a red taxi coming towards them.

"Where are you going?" Asked the taxi driver as soon as he stopped at the bus stop.

"Can you take us to Kampung Lalang?" Asked Irna.

"Yes..." replied the taxi driver.

"Thank you..." said Yati and Irna as they were getting into the taxi. After making sure everything was okay, the taxi driver immediately took the two to their destination.

"I don't think I can enter this road. What if I wait for you two here?" Asked the taxi driver as soon as they reached the entrance of the road leading down into the village.

"Yes, of course. But please wait for us, okay? We can't bear waiting for another taxi," answered Yati.

"Okay! Hurry up."

     They quickly went to Embak Limah's house which was located 500 metres away from where they got off and rushed to the taxi that was waiting for them after taking the dresses.

     They walked the dark road carefully but tried their best to quicken their pace. Irna suddenly stopped when she heard a loud grunt.

"Did you hear that sound Yati? Or is there something wrong with my ears?"

"Yes. I heard that too. The sound of breathing. But this doesn't sound like normal breathing. It's loud."

"Yes. Louder than normal breathing sounds."

"Perhaps, it's the sound of..."

"No! I don't think so. Stop that thought," said Irda. From the look in Yati's eyes, she knew what Yati meant.

"Irna! I'm scared! Let's hurry!"

"Ok! Let's hurry to the taxi!"

"Irna. I heard that sound again. But it got louder," said Yati who was getting worried when he remembered how far they were still from where the taxi was.

"Yati, should we go back to Embak Limah's house? I don't feel good about this."

"I think that's a good idea, Irna."

"All right. Let's go now!" said Irna. They both changed direction and walked towards Embak Limah's house.

"Do you hear that, Yati?" Asked Irna.

"Yes. Footsteps."

"Do you think someone is following us?"

"I don't know," said Irna. She braced herself and looked back.

"Oh, God!" Irna could not believe her eyes. She was so surprised by what she saw. A man dressed in black with red eyes emitting red light was looking at her with a cold gaze.

"Irna! Wha... what.... "

"Run! Run, Yati!" Urged Irna.

They were terribly frightened and ran as fast as they could toward Embak Limah's house.

However, Irna's legs suddenly became convulsive. He was unable to move and not long after, he fell to the ground.

"Ouch!" Irna screamed in pain. Yati tried to help but she was stopped by Irna.

"Run Yati! Ask anyone for help!" Asked Irna.

     Yati just obeyed, and with all her might, she ran leaving Irna behind to get help. However, soon after, just like Irna, Yati also fell to the ground.

"Ouch!" Yati screamed in pain.

"Why?" Irna shouted to her friend.

"My legs are cramping Irna!" Answered Yati while holding her legs.

     The man slowly approached Yati and Irna. His eyes brightened. Especially when Yati and Irna were right in front of his eyes.

"Please. Please. Don't hurt us," said Yati to the mysterious man. Irna was so scared that she could not utter a word.

    The man ignored Yati's words. He put his right hand on Yati's head and his left hand on Irna's head. The light coming out of his eyes turned blue. Less than a minute later, Yati and Irna passed out at the same time.
