The two storeys aesthetically painted house, fitted with an air conditioner, looked picture perfect and inviting.

Yet, every time he broached the topic of renting the place, the real estate agent shrugged it off, “it will not fit your budget, sir!

Prepare the paper work,” out to find a rental accommodation, he asked his real estate agent, “budget or no budget, I want this house.”

This house is cursed,” said the property agent retreating, “last tenant committed suicide. Cant let the same thing happen to another client.”

Cursed!” he wondered feeling invisible pull, “isn’t it essentially a human trait?

    1. Realtor does not want a bad name, incase the present client also meets with an unsavoury event. Meanwhile, the client is attracted to the house. Is it to the house or to the force that is in the house? Thank you for reading.

  1. A good story, Abhijit. If a house has a reputation for being haunted, I would look elsewhere. However, we bought a house one time and I found out someone had committed suicide on the porch. I think it probably had more to do with dropping property values in the area rather than anything else. There was also a leaky basement and a leaky roof, but it wasn’t a supernatural curse. We did lose money when we sold it though. —- Suzanne
