Aftermath of the serious headlong coalition involving two buses, which claimed ten lives on the spot, the fire service was called in to pull out the dead bodies from the wreckage. Identification wasn’t easy because of the state of the corpses, yet a woman identifies one of the corpses as her brother. He was an auto mechanic. His tool box which was with him before the tragedy occurred was found close to his dead body.
She rushes home wailing, to narrate the sad news to her mother and father. They quickly rushed to the scene but the bodies were already transferred to the mortuary. When they went to the mortuary, they saw their son’s body and the tool box among the items of those who lost their lives. It wasn’t a mistaken identity because Jame’s name is boldly written on his tool box. It was the saddest day for James’ family. When the family were leaving the mortuary, they went home with the deceased’s tool box.
When ready to bury James, they went to the mortuary to collect his body, but the body was nowhere to be found. The corpse has disappeared from the morgue without a trace. Their fears increased when they found out later at home that his tool box has also vanished. It was as if the mind is playing tricks on them but it is a reality.
Years passed, then one day, a woman from the village where the mechanic died, saw him working in an auto garage, in one of the big cities hundreds of kilometers from the village. “James, everyone thought you were dead after the accident. Why for a very long time you’ve failed to visit your mother and father aftermath the accident? The woman noticed something strange about James. Even though he didn’t give her an answer, she conluded: “Tomorrow I will tell your parents that I saw you here.”
When the woman went back to the village she quickly sped towards James’ family compound to tell them what she had seen. They refused to accept her story, asking if she is out of her mind, but she insisted that she is speaking the truth. The following day, they quickly joined the bus to where the mechanic is working but he was absent that day.
According to the director of the garage where James works, he received a message from one of his colleagues that he wasn’t feeling well and therefore will not be at work. Astonishingly, from the day James failed to come to work, he has never been seen again with his tool box. Is he going to begin a new life in another garage? Asked James family. The strange story remains a mystery.
