It was getting dark, by the minute and it was raining. Lightining and thunder was providing the back ground music to a scary play. I am home with three sisters and a maid and there was no sign of my mother. If things weren’t bad enough, the electricity tripped and the darkness enveloped us from all around. “I am scared Nina”. Sally spoke
“Of what?, The power will come soon”
Akkachi was sitting on the floor and I asked her” Akkachi can you light the candle?”
“Will you come with me to the kitchen Nina? I am scared of the darkness” Akkachi spoke.
“I am not scared of anything. I am Methran Thambi’s grand daughter.” Said Maria
I was really surprised to hear that,because Maria wouldn’t even go to Chengannur because she is scared of everything.
I got up to go to the kitchen with Akkachi and just then accidentally dropped my metal pencil case. The resulting sound was too dramatic, especially when all the metal items inside the pencil case, and the few loose coins made individual sound as it hit the ground
ente Ammoo,screamed fearless Methran Thambi’s grand daughter, and she jumped out of her chair, tripped on Akkachi who was still sitting on the floor and when the lightning flashed again I saw heaps of legs and arms on the floor and eveyone was screaming.
“What is going on? Why are you all screaming?” Amma asked
We didn’t even hear her opening the gate and coming in.
“Akkachi, why didn’t you light the candle?” Amma was scolding Akkachi.
“I will light it now” She ran to the kitchen in the darkness.
By now I couldn’t contol my laughter.
“Why are you laughing Nina?” Amma asked me
“Oh, nothing Amma, it is just that Methran Thambi’s fearless grand daughter nearly chuchumully (peed)in her panties.”
” I did NOT chuchumully (peed) in my panties. I will get you for this one day Nina” said Maria
“Ofcourse you will, after all you are Methran Thambi’s grand daughter, who isn’t afraid of anything!”
“laugh now, one day I will make you pay for all this.”
I wanted to stick out my tongue at her, but I heard Amma speaking.
“Maria, I spoke to someone and he suggested that you should do engineering” Amma told Maria.
“Who did you speak to?” I asked her
