A Ghost Story...

Warning: not for the faint hearted. If you are those chicken hearted ones, better don read..

You have been warned..

My office is rather large. From the end to the front, its like 2 or rather 3 HDB living rooms put together.

I was engrossed in work one night and it was about 8 plus at night. Before I knew it, everyone had gone home and I was left alone in the office again. As I might have mentioned to some of you before, the lights in my office are automated by sensors. Meaning that the lights will go off by themselves when there are no movements about the office, more specifically, no movement near the doors where the sensors are.

So it was when I was halfway through my work, the lights just went off. Now, the whole office would be pitch dark were it not for the lights flooding out from the printer room, which was right at the end of the whole office. The lights in the printer room are not sensor automated so they needed to be switched on or off manually.

With a fright, I jumped up from my seat and walked towards the main door so as to make some movements to get the sensors to turn on the lights. And this was where it got scary..

As I was nearing the door, my back facing the whole office, I heard 3 coughs behind me, just right near the table of my big boss' secretary. It sounded like there was a lady standing behind me coughing. Fuck..

And then I turned around. Now, I am at the front of the whole office, directly facing the printer room, which was right at the back, looking at the whole office in darkness, with only the lights in the printer room on, when it went off, with a loud click. FUCK!!!!!

I ran to the door and waved my hands frantically at the sensors. Finally the lights came on. There was no one in the whole damn office! The lights in the printer room were still off. What the hell....!!!

But I still got lots of work to finish up. So, no choice, still got to stay a little while more to at least finish up some.

Half an hour later, I cannot take it anymore. Just swept everything aside, grabbed my bag and shoot out from the office. Did not even dare to go pantry to wash my cup..

Fucking hell..
