As I entered the guest bedroom, I could see that it was being taken care of every day because not even own speck of dust could be seen. I lied down on the bed, not knowing if I could go to sleep after everything that had been happening. As I was told that I would be needed at the police station at around 2, I started to count how many hours of sleep I would get if I go to bed at 8:00 a.m.
Although I had never stayed over at anyone’s house before, let alone in a detective’s house, I knew that I couldn’t complain. I lied on the bed after plugging my phone to the charger. Since my cable was long enough, I could still use my phone in bed.
I scrolled through my social media accounts to check if the whole nation had known anything about the ‘attacks’ at my university. To my surprise, they haven’t known anything yet. There’s only two news article about a body found in my university without mentioning its condition.
I figured that the University’s CEO might have ‘pulled some strings’ to delay the news. It is a private university after all. I had always hated big corporations simply because they love to suck your blood dry. Then again, the government isn’t any better. After a few minutes of scrolling, my hands and eyes finally gave away to my tiredness. I closed my eyes at about 6:00 a.m. but after ten minutes, I was woken up by the sound of someone calling out my name.
At first, I thought it was the detective but I wasn’t so sure because I was too tired to think. I turned to face the door and that was when I saw it. Next to me was a hideous creature that I had ever seen. “Didn’t I say that I would keep your company?” it said and giggled. I was sure that I passed out after that because the next time when I opened my eyes, it was nearly afternoon. I got out of bed, took my shower and saw the note on the floor near the door.
“I will take you to the police station at 2 o’clock. There’s nobody home so make yourself at home” the note said. After taking about 5 minutes to reach the kitchen where I found another note saying that my breakfast/lunch is in the microwave. I could see that there are many photos of the detective and her parents hanging on the walls. I hated too many photos but I said nothing because I had never questioned people’s life choices simply because it doesn’t affect me in any way whatsoever.
I heated my food and glance through the kitchen. Being an observer, I love to observe things that are happening around me. I could see that the house was bigger than I thought it was the first time I saw it. Then I remembered about the thing that was lying next to my bed. When I woke up, I assumed that it was just a dream. That was when I heard someone walking down the stairs. As I turned my head, I could see a headless figure walking down the stairs. Feeling something touching my leg, I looked down and only got a heart attack when I saw a head at my feet.
Its mouth was still moving as it said, “I lost my body, do you know where it is?” I was sure that my scream woked up everyone in the neighbourhood that was still sleeping.
