A pair of vengeful eyes
In my younger years, I lived in Bandung at my sister’s place. The house is quite old, and we have a small porch and a mini garden in front of it. During that time, I used to stay up until late, watching movies or just enjoying myself after a day full of hard work. The TV was in the living room, there was a couch overlooking the front windows. One night, I fell asleep on that couch. That’s an ordinary thing for me, and even if I’m awake, I will get back to sleep until the morning comes. But not that night.
I was awakened by a noise, but I wasn’t sure what noise it was. It disappeared as I awake, and I noticed a heart-gripping feeling in the air. I tried to get back to sleep but failed. Frustrated, I gave up trying and as I opened my eyes and stared at the window, there, a pair of vengeful eyes, were staring back at me. Those eyes belonged to a pale face and even at a glimpse, I noticed the expression of a person bearing a grudge.
Shocked, I tried to close my eyes. I did that for a while and I opened my eyes to check if the person is gone (I was not sure if that person a male or female), but he/she was still there, staring at me! My heart pounded. I closed my eyes once again, for a longer time, and when I opened them once again, the person was gone. Oh, thank God! And without any second thought, I ran away to my bedroom and decided to never fall asleep on the couch anymore.”
