Danger Road

Danger Road

 

 

I was only 13 years old when this incident happened….

I had gone to my mother’s village during the mid-September holidays, and one day my uncle and I returned after cutting wood from the nearby forest to light a fire. Well, it was dark, and our Jeep was moving at a speed of 30 kmph on the dusty road.

The headlights of the car were shining and moving towards the dust. Only then did I feel like someone had passed by the car, and after a few seconds, a strange feeling spread across my body.

Before I could see a little bit of mud, my uncle shouted, “Don’t look…” I stopped suddenly. I felt as if my heart was going to burst out of my heart when I heard the sound of “thak-thak” on the window of the jeep.

My uncle increased the speed of the car and started praying to God while speaking. After going a little further, the Jeep started moving, and then Uncle said, “Look at me. Look at me from behind.” Don’t look  behind.”.

The train had stopped, and I had no idea what was happening there. I was finding it difficult to breathe; I wanted to scream, and I wanted all this to end quickly. Now the car stopped in the middle of the road, and the darkness passed through the tree.

There was only light from the jeep headlights on the road. Outside, there was a little warmth inside the car. The silence of the spring was being broken by the prayers coming out of Uncle’s mouth. There was some locket in his hand now, which might have been in the car.

It was taken out after being banded. Only we guarded our road because it was difficult for anyone to pass through it due to the proximity of villages and forests.

Uncle’s eyes were closed because whoever was praying, I was looking only in front of me, towards that deserted road, from where it seemed to me that from nowhere someone would come suddenly and everything would be destroyed.

But all this was not going to end so soon. With the passage of time, my heart started beating, and on the other side came the voice of my uncle’s prayer.

slow And slow….. Then a time came when the sound of his prayers stopped being heard; now even the car became quiet, and I felt the presence of someone else besides us.

 Now I felt as if everything was shaking; my body had become very light, and I could feel the heartbeat throughout my body. And then gradually everything disappeared…

The jeep was driving on a deserted road, but it was less dark than before, probably because there were fewer trees around because it was going through a forest. The car was as warm as before, and the sound of prayers was heard on the radio.

The voice sounded as if a ghost was speaking to them from the door. I was sitting on my seat listening to the radio, and my uncle looked at me and said, “I will ask your mother to pray for us so that the evil will forget our faces.”

I didn’t say much and just listened to an old prayer that was playing on the radio until we reached my dad’s house.
