Filling in...


“Roll no. 17.”

“Present, miss.”

“18.”

“Here, miss.”

Kanika looked up. That roll number belonged to Aadesh Tripathy, who was on leave. So who was this? A girl, sitting in his place, smiled at her.

Huh?

Kanika checked the register again. Aadesh Tripathy alright. So…

She looked up again, only to see a vacant seat.

Aadesh..?? With 2 A's and roll number 18..?? Shouldn't his be the 1st no. or atleast 2nd..?? :P

May be the girl was hiding under the desk. Why does every one want her to be a ghost.?? ;-)
Although it would be fun to spook teachers this way..:D

ET: :P

Kanthu: Hidkondbitra point na?? :D

Far as her being a ghost goes, can you expect anything else in my stories? :P (Looks like someone's getting tired of ghosts. Don't worry this blog won't remain spooky for long) :)
