This incident happened when me and my friends had been on a trip which was arranged by our college. The location chosen was Konkan.
We arrived in the evening around 5pm. Everyone was tired after a long day of travelling so we decided to hit the hotel which was already booked by our college. The hotel was next to a beach which wore a deserted look when we arrived. I guess it was a private beach. Soon it was dark and we decided to go to bed.
Me and my friend couldn't control our excitement and thought of exploring the beach ourselves, but were warned by our third friend that we wait until everyone is asleep. So as we were waiting, we were sitting near the window flashing our torches at the coconut trees on the beach, that's when I saw a lady-like figure walking on the beach very close to the water. I told my friends to switch off their flashlights immediately. We observed the lady as she walked towards the rocks on the beach. That is when we decided to go and find out what was a lady doing out at this time of the night.
We went out equipped with our torches and headed directly towards the beach. We could still see her walking calmly. We thought of calling and asking her. As we were walking towards her, my friend tripped and fell on the sand. We picked him up and flashed our torches ahead. To our surprise there was nobody there. We kept staring at each other's faces and even did a quick search but, there was no one to be found. We headed back to the hotel.
I don't know who she was or what was she doing there at that time of the night. We even asked the hotel manager about the lady but he just kept staring at us like we were idiots.
