The Visitor
Twenty-six year old Johnson was relaxing in his living room one day when he heard a knock on his door. He put down the book that he was reading and went to open the door. Standing before him was an elegant looking young man who requested to be allowed in. Johnson moved aside and allowed the young man in without actually knowing who he was. Since he had been brought up to show respect and reverence for everyone he meets, Johnson decided not to ask any questions for fear of being rude. The visitor introduced himself as Johnson's elder brother's friend and picked up a very interesting conversation with the host. They discussed about the book Johnson was reading, happenings in town and personal lives. While they were talking, Johnson entertained his guest with some food and drink. After eating, the visitor was tired and fell asleep on the couch. While taking away the used plates and glasses, Johnson noticed that his guest held a piece of paper containing names of people who were shortlisted to die. The first three names had been crossed out and written “mission accomplished" so Johnson's name was now the first on the list.
it became clear to Johnson that this man was Death. He did not see himself dying at such a tender age so he decided to act fast. He took the list from Death's hand, hurried to his bedroom, got an ink blotter and as carefully as possible, blotted out his name from the position where it was and exchanged it with the name in the last position on the list. He was very cautious to get the exact handwriting on the paper. When he finished, he tip-toed back to the living room and placed the paper where he had taken it from. Satisfied with his action, Johnson sat on another sofa and went back to his book.
After a while, Death got up from sleep. He was surprised that he had slept off in the house of a complete stranger. Nevertheless, he smiled at his host and said to him; “I have been visiting homes, hospitals, work places and so on but wherever I go, people never welcome me. Sometimes, I am stoned, in some places I am cursed, and some people just give up and let me have my way. I am truly impressed with your attitude. We had decided that today was your day to leave this world and join your ancestors. I am not supposed to tell you this but since you received me with much love and generosity, I have decided that I will take my victims from the bottom of the list instead". He turned the paper upside down, ticked the last name and wrote "mission accomplished". Johnson collapsed on the sofa before Death finished pronouncing the last word
