The lamp went out suddenly, throwing the room in darkness. The moon too had decided to hide behind the clouds. Suddenly Tripthi felt something crawl down her back. Body taught she tried to trace and catch the thing. But the creature wriggled away and in the process bit her. She quickly wriggled out of the dress, shook it and wore it again. She lighted the lamp. A sigh of relief escaped her lips. The lamp had gone off at the right moment.

Only a torn curtain hung between Tripthi and the world outside. The darkness was a blessing in disguise.
