Ghost in the Pipes #atozchallenge

A Whimsical Medley - Is my theme for the A to Z Challenge !! Hope you smile today :)
*****************

It was the first morning after our move to the new house.  I was fumbling with the shower taps to find the right balance of hot and cold water. Why in the world is it so difficult to find the correct temperature!! But that morn, it wasn't the only struggle.

Soon a deafening inhuman shriek reverberated through the bathroom. I  stood frozen to the core ... eyes wide open...  Too scared to make a sound.  

What the heck was that. All the scenes of Annabelle, Final Destination, Saw 1 to 7, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Evi dead, Aahat, Darna Mana hai flashed through my mind. 



My hand still holding the shower tap, I gathered some courage to move my head to check if a ghostly shadow was towering over me. Thankfully it was just air. 

The shriek soon subsided into a whine. I could hear my husband leisurely taking a shower in the other bathroom oblivious to my horror zone.

The screech was inhuman for sure but where the heck was our coming from.  Since we share a common wall with the neighbours I was pretty sure that they would come barging any minute, demanding what the ruckus was all about. Thankfully nothing like that happened either. 

As soon as my husband finished taking shower, the screaming stopped.  In the silence of the bathroom I still stood like a mannequin, feeling my heart hammering against my chest, cautiously turning once in a while.

Since I was running late I turned back the tap on, but it started shaking violently. That was it, I simply ran out of the bathroom calling for the husband.  

Someone's ghost is stuck in the pipes. Is that why the previous owners left?
How will we take shower without waking the whole neighbourhood... Oh this is terrible... terrible.

Later in the evening I Googled non stop, and only then did the hair on my arms settled. Seems it's just a faulty faucet... Thankfully no ghosts :P



Along with ClaireParul and Shalini we have formed an Unconventional Alliance with A to Z co-host Pam Margolis as the ring leader ... all set to rock the party.

If you are bitten by the travel bug - check out my A to Z of Wanderlust Tales

  8. A faulty faucet but a flawless narration :)
    We have had a similar pipe when I lived in a hostel and every time someone would take shower the whole floor would know because of the scary screeching like sounds.
