She Never Eats Outside Food
eats outside food nor is she very keen in attending any barbecue activities. She
has kept her secrets for many years until Lisa acquainted with Bobby, her new
found boyfriend cum colleague. That’s when Lisa’s nightmare begun to hunt her…
Bobby is colleague in a computer accessories retail shop which is situated just
a few steps away from where I stay. There
weren’t too many employees in the small retail shop, just Lisa, Bobby and a
general caretaker known as Ah Mah. So it is natural that Lisa and Bobby are
pretty close together as they meet face to face almost every day except on
their off day.
observed that Lisa never go out for lunch as she always prepared some food from
home. Bobby thought Lisa just want to save as the outside foods are pretty
expensive now days: a plate of chicken rice can fetch up to $6 excluding
beverages. So, one day, Bobby thought he would give Lisa a treat as well as
find a chance to get closer to her.
expected, Lisa declined Bobby’s invitations repeatedly but Bobby was so
persistent that finally Lisa accepted the offer; after all, it wasn’t so nice
if one doesn’t socialize around Lisa thought.
So off the
couple went out of the shop and the good hearted boss told them they can knock
off for the rest of the day as there weren’t any customers around.
There is a
small hawker center just opposite the computer accessories shop. One can find
all varieties of foods: chicken rice, roasted duck, noodles, western food,
roasted meat etc.
walked around each stalls discussing on which food to choose from until they
came across a stall selling roasted chicken and meat rice. All of the roasted
steamy meats are hung in a display cabinet to attract customers. Those yummy
roast meats will certainly double one’s appetite as not only the color looks
attractive, the smell of roasted meat can attract meat lovers from a distance.
thought Lisa likes meat so he paused to order some rice and chopped roast
chicken and pork meat. He thought Lisa would enjoy them… The contrary happened
to Bobby’s sweet dream however.
suddenly turned pale, shivered and shouted “go away!” and then covered her face
with both of her palms. Bobby and the stall owner were shocked by Lisa’s sudden
move but the stall owner immediately recognized that Lisa was disturbed by some
invisible force for Lisa is no stranger in this neighborhood.
I was also queued up to buy the chicken rice. The stall owner turned his face
towards me and said, “Hey! Mr. Liew, can you take a look?”
propped Lisa to a coffee shop and ordered a glass of ice lemon tea for her to
calm her mind.
was calm enough, I look into Lisa’s eyes and started my queries:
have you seen anything you shouldn’t?”
pondered for quite a while finally these words came out from her mouth…
“I saw a
lady ghost and baby ghost leaking a piece of roast chicken in the display
psychic eyes and can see spirits since small. My pa and ma don’t allow me to
speak out as they too are scared. Every time I pass through food stall; there
are bound to have some spirits around licking the foods or smelling them. That’s
why I don’t like to eat outside…”
that, I asked Lisa and Bobby to come over to my place and I will mask off Lisa’s
psychic eyes. As to the roast chicken rice they’ve ordered, that already became
my free lunch… Hahaha..
