    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 wrong turn | short story

    In the year 2009, after we finished our final exam, we went on a trip with my four other friends. Two male and three female. My two female friend and I were 17 years old, while the other male friend was 18 and 19 years old.

    So, we went hiking nearer the mountain, and we asked my brother to send us off to the reception.

    We all are excited about the hiking.

    I don't own any phone during that time, so I just asked my brother to come to pick us up at 3.00 pm. We assume to go back around that time.

    As soon we arrived, we register our name.

    Since one of our friend, Gary, has been there before, we assume he knew well the trail. The guide told us not to follow the other trail and stick to the trail that has been made.

    So, we noted the information and started our journey.

    Gary, the one who 19 years old, told us that he had been there before and knew there's a shortcut for another trail. But, we doubt it, after a while, we change our mind and follow him.

    There were 6 checkpoints, and each of the checkpoints was 20 minutes or more away, and the hill is so steep.

    When we arrive at checkpoint 3, Gary shows us the other trail. Since no one was looking at us during that time, we went to it.

    The bushes were thicker than we thought. As if it has not to be cleared for a long time.

    But, Gary insist that it is the way.

    So, we just walked. After a while, about hours and hours, we went into more deep and silent woods. Gary seems to panic as he just realises that we enter the wrong trail but still keeping it to himself.

    Then, after 30 minutes of wandering into the woods, finally, he realises we got lost. We all get angry all of a sudden that time. Therefore, we have to go back to where we came from in the first place.

    But, the thing was, we can't find the trail anymore; we went into deep and thicker woods.

    Gary felt sorry for that incident, but he tried to lead the way. However, it's getting darker. About two or three hours, we were wandering inside the woods.

    July, my other friend, was crying because she never experienced this thing. As that happened, we stuck in the bushes; Gary and the other male friend were shouting, calling for help. But there's no response to any of it.

    The woods getting darker as we went into a deeper place.

    Luckily, July has a small torchlight hang in her bag, and we used that to light the way, but the thing is, it is so steep. We all are holding onto each other; as soon we arrive at a place with a bigger space, Janna suddenly screams because her leg is stuck in one of the holes. 

    It was dark, and July's torchlight was too small to see what was happening. We hurriedly pull her, and she cried hysterically, but we tried to calm her down. We saw a scratch on her leg as someone clawed at her.

    We were all panicking ourselves. 

    All of a sudden, we heard someone calling my name. The sound seems too far from us; it's like coming from the above. We tried to listen once again, and for sure, someone was calling my name.

    They must have found us; my brother must have reported it to the authorities. We saw the light coming from above, about 30 to 40 metres. Then we shouted back.

    It was them, my brother and the team. They found us. They told us to not move around and stay where we are. It took about 30 to 45 minutes per person they help. The fireman picked us one by one, Janna, the first one, followed by me, then July, Calvin and the last one, Gary.

    When we all were saved, Gary crying as it was his fault. He keeps apologizing to us.  As we see the place from above, I was surprised, there was a big hole in front of us. We're so lucky that we did not continue but instead stayed there.

    The shortcut road has been closed due to a landslide that happened several months ago. 

    Let's that be a lesson to everyone that it's crucial to follow what the authorities had to say, and the danger of the wood can be happening to everyone.

    Take care.

    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
