N - Naught

It was a dynamic place. Anyone who entered the room in the day would hear mechanical noises of machines, cranking up of motors, workmen yelling at their sub-ordinates to move quicker to get things done. And by night, it was a rendezvous for the two of them. They belonged to the blue-collared employee class. Their affair had stirred exaggerated rumours and especially about the girl. Many men had tried to woo her and failed. She fell for this guy and he was a gentleman. Their love story would have had a happily-ever-after ending. But, there has to be always a twist in life. Life is not so easy, is it? The envious scapegrace could not see her dating another man and killed her; right there in the warehouse, after all workmen left. There was a ruse to get her killed. A very-well planned strategy to kill and get away.

But, they never killed her literally and she never left. They say that her soul lingered around the place and troubled the work-men who tried to start their work from where they left. All the work was brought to a naught and the place is now abandoned. But, it was a dynamic place, there is a proof. Anyone who enters the room hears mechanical noises of machines,workmen yelling at their sub-ordinates. But, it happens only in the middle of the night.
