This is my first real story I am sharing with you. I had this experience two years back when I was doing my 12th standard in Chennai and, as usual as every kids of 12th, I had to attend daily morning tuition from 5:45 am and I used to go by cycle for about 6 km. There are two roads which we can use, one the main road and other a shortcut along the slum areas where you find very less traffic and ideal for cycling fast. Sorry for long introduction but this I feel is needed to make readers understand the situation better.
So the real story begins here. One morning I woke up late so had to reach my tuition centre fast so I went for the second option, the deserted road along the slums and as usual I was riding fast and the roads were dark.
Suddenly, I heard another cyclist ringing his bell continuously behind me and I was irritated and I turned back but I couldn't see the cyclist properly but he looked like some Milkman carrying milk in canister cans. And in front me I saw a young boy and a girl come from each end of the road and hug each other in the middle. It was an odd thing to happen especially in such conservative areas. Again I was sensed by ringing of the cycle bell and went past the couples.
After I went past them I heard suddenly dogs started barking and to my surprise the ringing of the cycle bell gradually decreasing in sound. When I turned around, to my shock I saw that both the young couples and the cyclist had disappeared. The instance I turned around the bell stopped and the dogs were standing around the spot where the couples stood and barking (and I knew they couldn't have gone anywhere as there are no turns in the road and it was hardly few seconds after I went past them).
After this I was utterly scared, raced at my full speed until I joined a well-lit residential area and when I was speeding in shock I narrowly missed colliding with a lorry driver who definitely swore lots of abuses on me:D
So this is my experience. Please feel free to correct me any suggestions or advice regarding this.
