Sara came home panting. She quickly turned on the fan and called out to her mother, “Mom, Where is the AC remote?” “In the kitchen, with me, sweetheart!” her mother replied in a humble voice. She quickly ran to the kitchen to fetch the remote BUT when she reached, the kitchen was totally empty. Only the remote was kept on the table. When she came closer, it vanished into thin air. Sara thought it was just her imagination, may be mum has gone out. She then took a bath, changed her clothes and was thinking to make some lunch when she heard some noise in the kitchen like someone’s cooking. Her mother wasn’t there, and then who was it? She hid behind the kitchen shelf and saw some shadow dancing on the wall in the candlelight. Suddenly she heard something dripping. She thought its water BUT it was blood. She shrieked with fright. After gathering all her courage, she finally peeked a bit and saw a huge surprise. It was nobody but her mother. When her mother saw her, she said “SURPRISE”. Her brother was also there, who burst out into laughter. He said, “How coward of you….HAHAHA”. The liquid you saw was just a mixture of ketchup and water. Her mother said, “O dear, I wasn’t in the kitchen when u asked for remote, actually I was hiding in the balcony behind the kitchen”. “We planned a scary surprise for your birthday”, said mama. Her father also came in and said, “And here’s your cake Birthday Girl!”…….. What a scary surprise it was.
