The Haunted Bridge

8

EPISODE 1 Legend had it that a grief -striken lady was seen crying on the bridge,days before the second world war was over, many locals gave accounts of seeing her crying on the bridge everyday, her head bent, her Sari blowing with the wind but after so many days she stopped coming to the bridge and the locals there never bothered to find out why, afterall nobody knew her or had seen her face so they presumed maybe she was from another village. On a quiet evening, the body of a young woman flowed out from the river below and the locals believe she killed herself by jumping into the river, the locals buried her still and life went back to normal and finally the war ended and as days became weeks, weeks turning into months then years, something weird actually began to happen. It all started quietly in the summer of 1957 when the village was gradually becoming modernized, engineers were employed to rebuild the old bridge as the town was rapidly turning into a trade center. Workers reported to hear faint sobbing which began in mid afternoon, then sudden drop of temperature and sightings of an apparition of a young woman. Then the story or perhaps rumour came up again.
