A Walk In The School Grounds

It was Friday, September 11. Two friends were walking around the campus at 7:00 in the evening. Chris and Li had just come from their varsity training. They were exhausted and walking around to cool themselves off. On their way to the covered walk, they met up with their friend from their old school. Her name was Liz. They haven't seen each other for a long time. Chris and Li were both shocked at the sight of their old friend for they knew that her school was far from theirs. After a long conversation, they finally parted ways again. Just after Liz walked away, Chris realized that Liz left her wallet. He was going to return it but when he looked back, he couldn't find her anywhere. Chris, who was desperately looking for Liz, bumped into Rei, who just came from the lab and was still wearing his lab coat. He asked if Rei had seen Liz anywhere and to his amazement he had. Rei had said that he talked with her in the lab a few minutes ago and now he was looking for her since she dropped her keys. Together Chris and Rei started their search for Liz again.

Li was thirsty and was looking for something when he saw Chi going down the stairs. He ran over to his friend and asked why he was still here. Chi told him that the teacher just talked to him about some problems. He asked Li if he had seen Liz anywhere because she left her bag after talking to him. Li told him he had and that she left her wallet and she also left her keys with Rei. Chi and Li thought that was creepy and they both started looking for Liz too.

It was 8:30 and still Rei and Chris couldn't find their friend anywhere. Just as they were about to give up, they met with Chi and Li. They all told each other about Liz's sudden disappearances and forgotten things. Rei suggested that they'd all call it a day and go to Liz's house tomorrow morning.

It was now Saturday, September 12 at 9:00 in the morning. The four drove to Liz's house using Rei's car. When they got there, they got out of the car and knocked on Liz's door. Her mom greeted them and asked them to come in. Chi asked where Liz was and was shocked to see Liz's mom starting to cry. She told them that Liz had died in a tragic car crash. When they finally brought her to the hospital. They found out that her body was decapitated. She died on a Friday, September 11, a few years ago. Her mom also said that it was around 7:00 in the evening. Chris, Li, Rei and Chi looked at each other with wide eyes. They decided not to tell Liz's mom but

instead asked where she was buried. Her mom told them it was in a cemetery not more than 2 kilometers away from here. They left and silently drove to the cemetery with Liz's belongings. Each of them had the memory of last night when they saw Liz at their school.

After finally arriving at the cemetery, they went to her tombstone and one by one left her things there. They silently prayed for her soul to rest. As they were about to go back to the car, a slightly strong wind blew. Li looked back at the tombstone and saw a girl with her back towards them. She slowly kneeled down to pick up the things they left. He rubbed his eyes and looked again, but then the girl had disappeared.
