YOU BELONG TO ME

Publication1

I’m beginning to wonder if I could be a pawn in a future ghost story.

Plot …
A girl is a great employee.
She does her job, with limited resources and manages to keep most people happy.
She doesn’t know the company is a living, emotional entity.

The company forms an attachment to her.
It punishes everyone on the compound every time she leaves.
It obstructs the workday until someone calls her, and by extension acknowledges it.
The girl stupidly answers the call, and sometimes even rushes back to work.
She’s on the compound mere minutes and everything magically starts to work again.

On Wednesday, I was forced to leave work early, due to a family emergency. I’ve lost count, but I can’t seem to leave work, without the network and the Internet going down. Not that I am absent often. Sometimes one has to do what one has to do.

The weird thing is that, this problem began when I went on a two-month vacation, late last year. Since then the problem persists. Nine out of ten times this happens when I am not in office.

Could there really be a head office (?).
Is there a spirit, ghost, jumbie, jinn, that has attached itself to me?
Or does it have an interest to me?

These types of situations seldom end well for the poor sap, who realizes too late that she’s offended a being she didn’t know existed, by doing something that is regular for her. Then it obliterates her, and her body is never found.

She becomes victim number one in the new urban legend, ghost story, nancy story, folklore, of the girl who took too much time off.
