To explore life, Kanta has decided to go on a solo trip. She takes her bag, baggage and selects Bandarban as her destination.
When she reaches the bus stop, she finds it very noisy. A bus named Spirit catches her eye that is also heading to Bandarban. But its counter is a bit quiet. Some gloomy and pale faced 'spirit' are buying tickets from there.
Kanta likes such people as normally they do not eat your head by blabbering. She buys her ticket and sees a ticket seller beaming at her. She turns around and finds their driver is also beaming for no reason.
She feels a bit weird but then she could do nothing as she has already bought the ticket.
Her lips curve with joy because all the seats are black. Kanta likes black. And, just like saying 'good morning' to teacher, everyone looks at her and smiles at the same time.
Without giving them much attention, she takes her seat and starts to enjoy her playlist. And then, Spirit also starts its journey along with Kanta and 13 more 'spirits.'
After sometime, Kanta hears a sound like someone is whining. She puts off her headphone and looks back. Everything is fine but for some reason everyone is looking at her and smiling again.
Kanta puts on her headphone and finds a melancholic music is playing there that she has never heard of. She starts to sweat and feels very uncomfortable.
That ticket seller cum helper of the bus says, "Open the window apa. You are sweating." He is about seven feet away from Kanta and it is dark here. She thinks, "How does he know that I am…"
A bad smell interrupts her thought that makes her feel like puking and she tries to open window. It is not working. Her hands are slipping. Her hands are not wet. But it feels like wet. Why is it slipping?
She looks very closely and it is something red and sticky in her hand. Kanta gasps. It is blood. Did she slash her hand? No! There is no pain.
Suddenly Kanta starts to feel unbearable pain in her eyes. It is shedding tears. No, it is blood.
Kanta is about to scream and then she turns. The helper is just standing beside her along with 13 other spirits. Their hands are red, dropping blood from eyes but they are smiling at her.
Though she does not know why, she smiles back to them. Spirit's door opens and Kanta hears someone is whispering in her ears, "Run Kanta! Run! Run!"
Kanta looks at the door. It is open. It is dark outside. She is sweating. She walks to the door. Things are getting blurred and a hand touches her shoulder saying, "How can someone sleep in such humidity? Is it even a time to sleep? Wake up now."
