Every bite I took reminded me of the fun we had together, her sweet kisses, her convincing smile, this really made me weak.

“Max, do you know Melina?” I asked after taking a few spoons.

“Eat first Jack, I know you are puzzled but you need to eat.” Max replied.

“I just want to know, is it true that I was dating a ghost?” I asked.

“It is a long story brother, a story for another day.” Max replied trying to ignore my urge for more information.

“Can’t you just give a summary?!” I asked.

“A summary of what?” Max asked pretending not to fathom what I was talking about.

“Is Melina a walking dead or what is going on? I just need you to tell me if I kissed and fell in love with a ghost.” I said getting agitated.

Before Max could answer my question, his phone rang. He took it out and then said,

“This is urgent, I have to pick it. Meanwhile, eat your food. I will be back shortly.”

Max left the room and closed the door behind him. He left me with millions of unanswered questions crossing my mind.

I managed to finish the meal but after almost an hour of eating. I needed to take a bath so I called Max and asked him to show me where the shower room was.

I had no track of time neither did I know where I was although the sound of passing cars made me have a hint that I was near a highway.

Max showed me the way to the shower and I took forever in there, I could feel the rhythm of my heartbeat, how I wished the water drops cascading down my skin would wash away the memories of Melina but if wishes were horses, beggars would own a ride on them.

Eventually I was out of the shower and back to ‘My Room’, that is the room I woke up in, the room Max had taken me after he took me from the bus stop.

The room had all the required amenities for a guestroom; I took the body lotion and started applying it on my body. I had barely applied the lotion on my face when I heard a knock on the door.

I had not dressed yet since I was applying Lotion.

“Who is it?” I asked.

There was no response. I asked again and still got no response.

“Hold on, I am undressed. Give me a minute.” I said.

I grabbed the towel and wrapped it around my waist. Beside the bed there was a metal rod, I grabbed it and then went to answer the knock.

I slowly unlocked the door holding the rod on my right hand ready to strike in case of a threat.

I couldn’t believe my eyes after I opened the door! There she was, Melina in a red dress!!!!!!
