The screams made me open my eyes. I was still standing at the start of the corridor. It was quiet. I couldn’t see the end. But I had to get there with my eyes closed. Ma said I will hear strange voices. Crying, screaming, insulting, begging for help. Ignore, she had said. They are just wretched souls yearning for release from earth. Sounds simple. I close my eyes again. The screams are louder now. I start walking to reach the end. But I can feel someone walking behind me trying to touch me. I shrug it off and run.
