A Haunted Song – Short Story

Du..du..du.. you and I… two girls one life… we’ll always be together… won’t leave each other even against our will… two girls one life.. you and I… du.. du.. du..

“Kuku, just throw that dirty doll in the dustbin. Papa will buy you a new one in the town dear. Hurry up, or we’ll be late.”

“Okay Mom, just one minute,” Kuku replied. She is sad because they are shifting to a new town, and her Mom won’t allow her to keep Betty with her.

“I’m sorry Betty, I don’t know what’s wrong with mom. I have to leave you here but always remember our song. I’ll never forget you Bet…

Kuku ran away leaving her doll in the dustbin and sat in the car. She was depressed leaving her doll behind, which she had 7 years ago as her first present by her parents.

7 years later…

A girl who might be around 20 is standing in front of an old house. It’s been an hour; she is staring at a rusty dustbin and holding the old wooden gate of the house.

She’s Kuku! Since the day she left her old house, she’s been having the same dream about her childhood memories with her doll Betty, every night.

Kuku finally steps inside and without blinking an eye she goes and sits in front of the rusty dustbin.

“Look Betty, I’m here now. You missed me a lot right? I’m sorry I couldn’t come to you fast, but we’re not alone anymore. There’s no one left who would stop me to come to you. People say you killed everyone slowly and made their life like hell but I know they all lie, Betty.. my life was hell without you for those past 10 years. I knew that you would be waiting for me under this tree on this dustbin where we got separated. I’m here now and I promise I’ll never leave you.”

A piece of newspaper is wandering in the street. It reads, “a cursed doll named Betty has killed everyone near the old house. People say that they hear someone’s voice coming from the old house and they believe that it’s the cursed doll who used to sing that melody with her owner Kuku. When Kuku’s parents realized that the doll is cursed they decided to leave the town. But nothing changed….”

Alarm clock rings- “7 am- 7 am. Kuku, it’s time to wake up.”

“Happy Birthday to you.. happy birthday to you.” Little Kuku wakes up, it’s her birthday today. Her parents bring her a cake and also a present.

Kuku takes a deep breath and realizes that it was only a dream.

“Look dear, we’ve got a special gift for you.”

Kuku is excited and happy about her gift.

“Yay.. I am Betty! Kuku’s new friend! You know Betty can even sing, see…”

“Du..du..du.. you and I… two girls one life… we’ll always be together… won’t leave

each-other even against our will… two girls one life.. you and I… du.. du.. du..”

Hey guys! So finally, I tried to write a short story for the first time. You know how much I love horror stories, I already knew that if I would ever try writing a short story it will be something creepy for sure. I got inspired by Vani Di just so much that I couldn’t help myself. But I know that I have to improve very much, so I want your feedback on how can I improve it, especially from Vani Di. So let me know how you liked it!

Thanks for reading!

      4. It’s not a wrong thing I like peoples comments if I agree with their comment or just because it’s a really good comment built liking people’s comments too much is spamming. Ikr he is not even commenting on your posts or following you, we should report him to WP for spamming too or send an email with a. Screenshot of his notifications because he is making me annoyed now
