THE ELEVATOR


“What’s that noise?” Nancy asked, looking at the direction where the cranky noise was coming from. Her first day at work, Nancy was distracted and couldn’t concentrate. Every few minutes the noise would start; go up, down, stop and repeat. She decided to ask her senior.

“Oh you’ve already started hearing that too?” The senior was nonchalant.

“But what is it? The door is locked, so I can’t see what’s making that noise. It sounds like an elevator. But aren’t they supposed to be at the other end?

“That’s the old haunted elevator. Forget it and get back to work.”

  8. Nandini,
    I guess you can get used to anything. :) I think if I worked there, I wouldn't be content until I investigated, although maybe another job wouldn't be bad either. It'd be hard to concentrate on work with all that noise.

  13. Your story started off so realistically and then got decidedly less so. That made it even scarier.

  18. Hi Nandini .. great excerpt .. I can hear the gears cranking away .. and wonder as the old door squeaks grumpily shut .. and then locked away and hidden - could be all sorts of stories here ..

    I'm over from the A-Z .. to say hi and looking forward to your posts ... cheers Hilary
