I just arrived as the new maid for this family.
The old maid there quickly briefed me on recent happenings in the family.
"Uncanny things are happening in this house. We hear weird noises every night. In fact, two of their kids are currently missing with no clue of their whereabouts." she said.
I wasn't fazed by the story. I just came to work and nothing more would interest me.
Fast forward to that night, I woke up to close up the opened windows because my room instantly felt chilly.
I looked out the window and saw a figure digging a big hole behind a huge tree stationed there.
I grabbed my torch light and pointed it towards the direction of the digging.
A lady in a blood stained cloth was digging vigorously. Two kids were standing behind her not moving.
She noticed the flash and stopped abruptly. Fear gripped me and I instantly switched off my torch light.
"What are you staring out?!" A voice sounded behind me.
My body froze and I couldn't thaw for minutes. I turned slowly in fear and beheld the woman in blood stained dress.
"Jesus!" I shouted.
She gave out an evil laugh that made my heart thump so hard.
"Don't try to interfere in my business next time. This family buried me alive years ago."
My legs were glued to the floor. I couldn't run nor shout. I was in a shock. But she continued her story.
"That particular day, I was just going about my activity as a maid - fetching water. Their eldest entered, speeding into the compound with his car. I was knocked down in a rush and wasn't taken to the hospital but was dragged to the back of the house and buried alive. Oh. He did that to cover up his crime."
Her face was steaming with anger. I could almost feel her burning fury.
"I'm here to bury their kids alive too. Don't interfere!" She thundered.
Her scream brought with it an angry wind which sent me crashing into the wall.
