A young law student Alexander Morgan at the request of her chief stays with her at night in her apartment. That very night he will face the mystic phenomenon - a ghost of hanged woman who appeared from the remote past to the present. What for and with what message she came into this world the future lawyer has to find out.
I dreamt that I go along empty and dusty street. On both sides of street poplar trees were planted. In front of me I saw a well and came to it. Coming closer and looking inside I heard soul –chilling woman scream. Another moment and my body quivered. I sharply breathed, opened my eyes and sat on the folding bed. Near me Valeriya Sergeevna was sitting. She tried to squeeze up against me by whole body. I jumped to feet and looked about. The room was still lit by moon, but the light left in hallway was not on already. The door to bedroom was opened and in the doorway was standing the female figure in long white loose overall. It was impossible to see her face because it was covered by a flowing hair. The moonlight lit the uninvited guest and therefore she became more terrible. Her hands were not seen clearly but from under long attire her tombs were seen. I riveted to the spot. This minute I saw a ghost with own eyes which cast over me bodily fear. I began to shake. I felt the cold fingers of Valeriya Sergeevna sank into my shoulders. I heard as she silently prayed looking away from the ghost coming from kingdom of darkness.
— Well, all is quite simple! Now I lay out entire situation in details. Valeriya Sergeevna’s husband Peter is a businessman. He went bankrupt somehow at this unstable time. So, the idea came to him to sell your four-room apartment that you inherited from your grandmother –veteran. As we know, your apartment is located in the area of good address of Moscow and is pricy. And if to sell it profitably, it is possible to cover part of the burning debts. And to buy for amount remained after the sale some two room apartment outside the Moscow Ring Road. A brilliant plan! Just small thing is lacking — to offer this idea of selling to you. But you do not agree, as it is memory from your grandmother and for you Valeriya Sergeevna it is more than just an apartment. And then he thought up all this performance with the ghost. Kind of it is childish and banal, but on the other hand what effect! Yesterday you were ready to sell it to all the devils.
I could neither stir nor make a step. I have never seen such thing before. In some minutes, some unknown force threw him aside on decent distance. The clairvoyant fell, but got up and went on reading. By words that reached to me I understood that these were prays. Making a step, something again threw him aside with force. Valeria run into the room and what she saw make her quiver. She squatted as hiding behind armrest of the sofa that stood right at the entrance. Something unexplainable happened inside of me from all that took place. I felt fearful. I could not fully understand what happened to this paranormalist. I decided to leave the room and head to the place where Valeriya Sergeevna was hiding. I picked her up in my arms and took out from the hall to the kitchen, closing the door of the hall.
I woke up in the morning. Holding the wall slowly went up from the floor. I felt as I was hit by something very heavy. The hand wittingly pulled to the head. I felt the place where it hurted much. The wound was bleeding but it was covered with layer of parched blood. At first time in my life i rejoced at the sunset as the child. Sunrays came through all the corners of the apartment, lighting up the dark corridor and each room. “And where is Valeriya? “stroke off in my head. I went to the bedroom, but she was not there. It took my breath away and I rushed to the window. Hanging out till the belt looked down but fortunately I did not find her there too.
Recently strange things have occurred in my apartment. It seems to me that a ghost appeared making me restless. Though, on one hand it’s funny to talk of it and on the other hand I saw the silhouette of this ghost. It is a girl. She appeared just once. And today my civil husband informed me that he was going to business trip. For me this news became shock. Taking into account what has been happening in our apartment for several days, his absence now is off the point. But he cannot refuse to the management. You understand. And I don’t want to stay alone at night at all. I asked Galochka but she said she could not make company to me tonight. And here you appeared in the office. So I decided to offer you to be my guardian only for a night. As late as tomorrow my husband will return, -she said.
