Pen

(Translated and arranged by Saya)

A high school girl was studying for the end of term exam in her room.

It was well past midnight. She was getting sleepy and starting to lose focus.
At one point, while she fiddled with her pen, she suddenly had a weird idea of tossing the pen over her shoulder.
She just felt like doing it, for no particular reason.

So while sitting on the chair, she tossed it over her shoulder.
But ----

---- She heard no sound of it dropping on the floor.

The floor was wooden. If a pen dropped, it would have made a sound.
She felt chills down her spine.

But when she gathered the courage to look behind, she found that the pen had simply landed on a cushion that was on the floor.
"Of course!" She muttered to herself as she felt tension leave her body.

Next day, at school, she shared her story with her friends, with some embellishment.
"Have you heard this story before? If, around two a.m., you toss a pen over your shoulder and you don't hear the sound of it dropping on the floor, you will soon die from an unknown cause?  To tell you the truth, I tried tossing a pen like that yesterday, at two a.m. ---- "

She heard her friends draw a sharp breath.
"---- and guess what? It didn't make a sound!"
She exclaimed in a dramatic tone, and a little commotion followed. A few of her friends even screamed in terror.

Seeing that she smiled with satisfaction, and added: "But it was just because the pen dropped on a cushion. Hahaha!"
It was just another funny story to tell during a break.

That night, she sat at the desk in her room, studying for the exam just like the day before.

But it was getting late, and again, her mind started wandering. She glanced at a clock on her desk.
It had just gone five minutes past two.

She then remembered the story she had told her friends during the day, and looked at the pen she was holding in her hand.

And, without thinking, she tossed it over her shoulder. 

This time too, it didn't make a sound.

Only this time, it should have made a sound.
She had moved the cushion that was on the floor onto her bed yesterday.
There couldn't be anything else on the floor that might have absorbed the sound.

She knew where the pen should have landed on the floor, from the way she had tossed it.  
She was sure there could not be anything there.

Cold sweat broke all over her body. She shivered.
After some hesitation, she slowly turned around to look behind her.

And there, she saw one of her friends from her school, standing right at the place where the pen should have dropped. 

".....I tried it too, just like you did in the story you told me."
Her friend said icily in a low whisper.

Firmly gripped in her friend's hand was the very pen which she had tossed only a few moments ago.  


(This story reminded me of this: A Made-Up Story )

    Be careful how you use your pens while studying or working πŸ˜†✨

  2. Such a harmless joke with a very sinister ending. By the way, just finished Shibuya School Girls' CURSE LIST on Amazon Prime via J-Edge. A lot of creepy stories in this vein.

      It's the first time I have heard of the title! I searched for it and it's not available on Amazon Prime over here, but I found it on a video sharing site πŸ˜†✨I might watch it too! Thank you for that ⭐

    2. As it is an anthology series, the stories range from good to bad, though I must warn you the acting isn't going to win any awards. But still not a bad resource for people interested in Urban Legends. I did have access to a series called Senritsu, but J-edge lost the rights to it.

  3. Woah! That’s a creepy story. So does that mean since the friend tossed the pen behind their shoulder, the friend came to the girl’s room for revenge for telling them to the story? I don’t want to put a pen near my shoulder anymore lmao.

      Yes, I think the friend died because for some reason the girl's story became true. The friend's ghost probably came for revenge, and my guess is that the girl will die too and the curse will be carried on to the next person who throws a pen in that manner πŸ˜†✨

  4. A thief entered her friend's house. Whilst the friend is studying at 2AM, her friend tossed the pen as she did and the thief happened to be at her friend's back; the pen strikes the thief's left eye. Then the thief goes into a rage and choked the life out of her friend.

    Whilst she has no apparent reason to toss her pen, I do: when I'm upset because all the ink is spent before I finish writing.

    It begs for more whys and hows.
