THE TROUBLESOME SPIRIT (Episode 6)

The sharp cry shook the
entire lodge, frightening
me tremendously. My heart furiously pounded.



The day of reckoning finally has arrived. I waited for few minutes
in my room as i tried so
hard to compose myself.
Just like other students, i
had to check out the cause of the cry and noise coming from downstairs.

I wished i had travelled, but truly it was very bright of me to stay
put in the lodge
instead of travelling,
because i had to be around in order to follow events and plan ahead.
Moreover the hostel was a large one but it never stopped students who
lived in it from knowing each other's habit and as i hardly travelled.
Who knows i could be suspected. Yes i was so scared that i
felt every step i took could lead anyone to suspect me
even though i was far
from being one of the
hostel terrors nor cultists who could easily be
suspected as the hand
behind such a deadly act. I drank a glass of water
before heading out of my
room. I slowly headed
downstairs, towards
where i dumped Nmeka's
body days ago. You can't imagine how nervous and
scared i was as i slowly
made my way to that
place. Hundreds of students were
already at the staircase
when i got there.

Students from the neighbouring hostels alike. I greeted
some of my neighbours who told me of the terrific dicovery. I pretended to be
shocked and forced my
way to the front of the
crowd.

After a little struggle, i succeeded in getting close to Nmeka's body
which was already pulled out from the staircase.

The poor girl was now lying just some steps away from where she was originally
dumped, looking pale as
ever. I drew a bit close as
if i was very concerned.

"do you know her?" a girl
quickly asked me. I turned
to see almost everyone
staring curiously at me. I
swallowed hard with
tension. My guilty conscience shook me like
an earthquake.

"what?" i stammered.

"do you know her?" the
hostel president asked,
before the girl could repeat her question.

"hell no. That's exactly
what i came to check" i
managed to reply, dashing all their hopes.

"nobody knows her. She
has no I.d or anything" the girl who asked the first question
explained, while i shrugged, saying nothing.

The relief i felt as i heard the girl's explanation was
quite enormous. I really
had feared the question
was asked with suspicion. However i still feared the
worst was yet to come. I
knew there must surely be
a scapegoat. A sacrificial
lamb who will be blamed
for such a horrible crime. Who will it be??.
