“You look pretty in that dress” – Anonymous.I had a crush with one girl. I love to see her smile. I like how she dresses, how she tied her hair. She looks so cute. I always teased her look, teased how she was talking, but no one knew that I had the crush on her.Are you wondering how long I had known her? We know each other since we were a little kid. Our parents had a good relationship, for almost 20 years. She’s my best female friend in my hometown. She always came to help me when I was bullied. Since then, we’ve been a friend since we were 9 years old.Never had in my thought that I would have a crush with my best friend. But, that is possible, right?We’ve entered the same school since we still in primary school and up until now, we still entered the same college, same universities, but she was in her ballet classroom and I was more into social studies. Our faculties were apart, but when we had time, we would meet. As our relationship as a friend grow longer, and we became older, I r…

The Haunted office


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 another teenager, I wanted to hold my own money. So, I send all my resume regardless of where I am heading or got stuck with, with hope at least I got one interview from the job I was applied with. 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 a day, I was struggling to find a job that I like. Then, I type on the 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.

This time, I waited.

It does not take a long time. For about two or three days, suddenly I got a call from an unknown number, 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 a demon’s worshippers?

In the next 5 seconds, my phone rings again. The same unknown number. I was hesitated to answer the phone, but still, I answer the phone, and started asked, “Hello, who’s this?”. I was a relief after I heard a person’s voice. He said he sorry because there’s a line problem, and he then told me that I got a job interview at 9.00 am tomorrow at XXX Company. He said he will give me the map to the company. That night, I prepared myself regarding whatever question will be asked.

The next morning, I prepared myself and started my motorcycle. I opened again the location he gave me. I begin to drive to that location. Along the road I was driving with, I felt very eerie because that place was a bit 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. But, to remember again, this is my chance to get a job, so I proceed although I felt worried and scared a Lil bit. 

Don't worry, 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.

Okay, this is not a good thing, I made my decision. I called again the interviewer. Oh no, it turns out, the number was never in service. Luckily it still a day. I drove my motorcycle as fast as I can, with my heart beating so fast.

I ran to my laptop and search for that place. I was shocked by 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 misery, all of their behavior, all 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 fell the chills all over my spine. Luckily, I get out as fast from that place. It was a thrilling experience.

That was five years ago. I already got a job, thank these scary experiences.
