Play Catch

After a tiring day at school, Brij dropped his bag next to his bed. He lay down and stared at the ceiling. It was yet another day his mother was doing 2nd shift at the hospital.
Suddenly the lights switched off. She had again forgotten to pay the electricity bill. He lit the emergency light they kept in the room.

The light cast his shadow on the wall. He felt he saw something move amongst the shadows. He shrugged. He picked up a tennis ball and threw it at the wall and caught it. Third time he felt the ball go through the wall and a hand threw it back.
‘Catch’ he heard a voice say and giggle.
