    The Oak Garden Building | Short Story 2021

    As I gaze out my window at the sky while watching my children sleep,  the brisk winds remind me of a building that I once lived in,  wherein I saw, sensed, and were horrified,  an encounter with which I'm not comfortable speaking.  Fortunately, everything turned up okay. My name is Herman, but my friends called me Er, and the following is a story of what occurred to me 23 years ago. I have had a passion for writing since a kid. Now my guardian thinks I can go even farther. Consequently, they help me submit an authorship application and enrol in further linguistic, writing, and journalistic courses. Little did I realise that I'd be given a job to help me improve my abilities while simultaneously taking part-time writing courses to support my income. I was a young twenty-year-old at the time. Too young, yet inquisitive and willing to try new things. As a young author, the chance pushed me to go outside my comfort zone and acquire essential experience.  Pay attention to the sound

    The Haunted office | Short story 2020


    Five years ago, when I was about 20 years old, I got a job at one office that I thought was real. This is my story, Jason Lee.

    My name is Jason Lee; about five years ago, when I was still in my 20’s, I was struggling to look for a job. Actually, I felt so bored at home, and like other people, I wanted to hold my own money. I send all my resumes regardless of where I am heading or got stuck, with the hope at least I got one interview from the job I was applied for. Hopefully.

    So, I waited for almost two or three months.

    At the moment, I felt like giving up. I already got an answer from some of the resumes I sent through email, and most of the answer was a disappointment. I was crying because I’ve been hoping to get the job. But, I guess I am not lucky enough.

    I was so depressed. But then I don’t give up.

    I kept telling myself that I am still young and still a long way to go. So, I opened my computer, and start looking for a job. For night and day, I was struggling to find a job that I like. Then, I type on google “Job vacancy”. I saw the job title “Office boy”, and the company wasn’t far from my house. So, this time I wasn’t giving too much hope so that I won’t feel disappointed. Then, I manage to do my resume and send it to that company’s email.

    Then, I waited.

    It does not take a long time. Suddenly, I got a call from an unknown number for about two or three days, but it was odd. But, I do remember the sound of that person called me. 

    For about 5 seconds, I heard weird voices and language. Some of it was laughing, crying, and cursing at the same time. I immediately end that call. Truthfully, I was a bit scared. Is this some kind of joke, or did this phone was hacked by someone?

    In the next 5 seconds, my phone rings again. The same unknown number. I was hesitant to answer the phone, but I had to, so I did, “Hello, who’s this?”. I was a relief after I heard a person’s voice, but his voice just weird. He didn't say much, but he told me that I got a job interview at 9.00 am tomorrow at XXX Company. He directly told me where the company at, while he told me I was trying to list the details. 

    That night, I prepared myself regarding whatever question will be asked.

    The next morning, I prepared myself and started my motorcycle. I read again the location the person gave me, and I was searching through google map. I begin to drive to that location. Along the road I was driving with, I felt very eerie because it was dark, yet it's already morning. It was an empty road.

    I don't feel really well at that time, and I started to slow down my motorcycle; I don't think I can make it to the destination. This is my chance to get a job, so I proceed although I felt worried and scared. 

    After a while, I arrived safely at 8.50 am but to wait, what will happen ahead of me quite uncertain. That place looks old, spooky, and no occupants. But, stupidly, I still wait for that man for about 15 minutes. I wait outside. But I got these chills, not a very pleasant feeling.

    It's been about an hour. I decided to get out of that place. I called the number again, but it was never in service. Luckily it still a day. I drove my motorcycle as fast as I can, get out from that place with my heart beating so fast.

    After I arrived home, I ran to my laptop and search for that place. I was shocked by what I read on the news. It was abandoned 12 years ago; the manager locked the staff in the basement and left them to died. They were found after a week. According to the report, the manager records his staff's misery, all of their behaviour, the crying, the laughing of madness, and cursing.

    It explained the first 5 seconds of calling last night. 

    The manager took his own life in his office while holding the phone. I felt the chills all over my spine. Luckily, I get out as fast from that place. It was a thrilling experience.

    I should have a check on that place first before getting there.

    How the conversation started 12 years ago | seewriteandpost.com

    There's a quote says by a famous person, "If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love." - Princess Diana. Twelve years ago, I had a crush on one person. He played the guitar at the church. He was a best friend to my other friend, so I'm not really close to him. He was funny and sometimes quiet too. I was interested in his character. I was 16, and he was 18 years old at that time.  Well, you know what people say, love is blind for a kid, and I realise that I was still underage at that time. Having a relationship is not my kind of thing when I was still 16 years old. But still, having a crush is not a crime. So, I kept that feeling until I was at college. At the age of 18, I got an offer to school away from my hometown.  Because I kept my feeling for so long, sometimes when I return to my hometown for a semester break, I will give him a present. Looking back on that memories, it was funny, though. He was 20 at that time. Sure did, I tried to
