That night too he went with his regular habit when this mysterious figure was sighted. It was the first Friday of the month and there was no moon on that day when he started off on his rounds after a late dinner. There were few vehicles on the road, and much of the neighborhood had retired early due to the cold weather. hen he turned left of the second avenue suddenly his eyes caught a figure near some shrubs about !" meters away. I am bit confused to say what it is.# He further added that it was seen near the house of the $ascals. %efore Alec went closer to investigate, the figure swiftly ran away.
