It’s a date!

It’s a date!

Sarahs heart skipped a beat as she read the final text from her long-time crush.

"Its a date then!" The words filled her with excitement; she was finally going to go on a date with the boy of her dreams.
On the chosen day, she got dressed and set out for the restaurant they had agreed upon.
The anticipation fuelled her steps, but the journey took an unexpected turn when she found herself struggling to find a rickshaw.

Although the clock had only struck 7 PM, the road was unusually empty, perhaps due to earlier rain. Eventually spotting a rickshaw, Sarah, relieved, hopped in without negotiating the fare.

As the ride began, Sarahs thoughts wandered to her forthcoming date, causing her to overlook the fact that the rickshaw puller had turned towards an unfamiliar route, leading to an even more deserted road.

Suddenly, Sarah realized the deviation and requested the puller to return to the main road, but her plea fell on deaf ears.
Fear gripped her, prompting a drastic decision - to jump from the moving vehicle. She hit the pavement … the rickshaw puller showed no concern as it continued on its path.

Gathering herself, Sarah started running.

Glancing back, she discovered the rickshaw puller wasn following her. Doubt crept in as she began wondering if it was his territory.

Soon she encountered a woman with her head covered with her sarees loose end.

Upon touching the womans shoulder, Sarah was met with a shocking revelation - a smiling man with decaying teeth and bloodshot, frightening eyes.

Panic set in as she stumbled backward, away from the man in the saree.

In a desperate attempt to escape, Sarah ran blindly until colliding with an unseen pole, plunging her into darkness.

The distant sound of a beeping machine woke Sarah. Opening her eyes, she found herself in a hospital room, Asif, her date, sitting beside her.

"How?" she managed to weakly inquire.

Asif explained: "I saw you running, and I realized you were in trouble."
Sarah mustered a smile.

In a playful tone, Asif asked: "So, what do you say? Its a date then."
