Story Part 1

October 21, 2045. I just turned 15th today and I am seeing him again on my birthday. Right outside my room window, across the street, snooping around Mrs Menon’s house. This is the 10th time I have seen him. He appears once a year on my birthday since my 5th birthday. And every time he would just run behind the house and disappeared. I told my mother about this. She wouldn’t believe me, Mrs Menon’s live alone after her husband died and there’s no such boy in the neighborhood. She is convinced that I was only imagining things.

This time, I want to prove my mother wrong. I followed him. I saw him breaking into Mrs Menon’s house, came out 10 minutes later with a shoe box. I confronted him.

“Who are you?”

“Erm… I uh…”

“What are you doing? Are you trying to steal something?”

“No. I was just looking for something. And this box belongs to me.”

“But this is Mrs Menon’s house! she is staying alone and it is impossible that…”

“I used to stay here.”

“Really?”

“I gotta go!”

The boy turned and ran into the woods behind the house. I chased him, tried to catch up but I couldn’t. He eventually disappeared.
