A young girl got the first nursing job in a private hospital And was assigned to check the ground floor patients. Room 1, 2, 3, as she got to room 4 the door was opened Inside the room a man was lying covered with a blanket. But in the patient list the room supposed to be empty. She ran to the preceptor to report it in a frenzy state. The head nurse and others visited the room, found none. She said that last week a patient committed suicide in the room. The security was called and then the room was closed. But a word went round about its suicidal aspect. The next day, out of curiosity, as she entered the room Was caught by a strong man and forced to sleep with him. As the time passed it became her regular daily routine. To her surprise, once she saw her boss coming out of the room. Slowly there was a decrease in the patients of the hospital. Another surprise was waiting as she found dead in the room. The whole corner was declared as a haunting place. A day was not far when the whole hospital was closed. A ghost is a person whose life ended abruptly and violently Known as a haunting as they are haunted by a life gone. Haunting from thoughts and presence becoming testimony. If one thinks sensibly about it, the ghosts are just you and I. All talk about love, ghost and God, but does anyone see them?

    Dr. Ram - Was that first patient named Willie? Hence he gives me the Willies. Forgive the joke please, it is not meant to diminish this deep work. Maybe it is it's intensity that looks for the comic escape. Katht

    Great one. I love the story line. I once labelled a colleague who tormented me as an Incubus! He never haunted me again! JM
