The Scare

complete the story Shashi had chicken pox and was not allowed to leave her room. Her brother Dilip was in the 10th and with the board exams starting the following week, Ayee did not want him to get infected.
At 11am Ayee brought her soup. When she had finished drinking it, Ayee said, ďShashi, our neighbour Usha Taiís old mother is leaving this evening. Iíll wish her goodbye and return in half an hourís time. Thereís no one in the house but donít answer the phone or the door. You just lie down in bed. Iíll be back soon.Ē
ďIsnít Dada at home?Ē asked Shashi.
ďNo, heís gone to his friendís house to study,Ē said her mother.
After her mother left, Shashi did not know what to do. She didnít feel like playing with the dolls anymore. She hated being left alone in the house. Actually, the silence frightened her. The house even felt different when there was no one around. She heard a car reverse and pull away. She looked at the clock. Only five minutes had passed since her mother had left. All of a sudden she heard a creaking sound as though a window had opened. And then she heard a soft thud!
Shashi thought that Ayee had left the kitchen window open and Kitty the gurkhaís cat had jumped in. She waited for the tabby to push open the door to her room. But it didnít. The house was silent again. Perhaps Kitty had as usual gone to sleep under the cushion on the sofa.
Then she heard another sound - like that of shuffling feet. She got out of bed and walking on tip toes with her heart in her mouth, she opened her roomís door...and then froze with fright as she saw...

What did Shashi see? Was it the tabby? Or was it someone else?
