Spirits At Traveler's Lodge

Spirits at Traveler’s Lodge
A neighbor’s son who was at that time about 17 years old was always getting into trouble. He was practically failing badly in his studies and he was into smoking, drugs and drinking alcohol. He and his friends decided to rent a room at the local Traveler’s Lodge. The management was reluctant to rent out but they eventually agreed, provided they accept the room that was way out of the other guests. That was fine with them, as they did not care whether they stayed and only matter to them is a place to party to drink and smoke.
After a night of partying, my neighbor’s son woke up and found that he was lying face down at the carpet floor. He looked around and saw a feet where he was sleeping. He quickly rolled over and he was surprised to see a boy squatting over him. He cried out, “Hey man, who is that kid?...somebody’s little brother!”. Nobody answer and he fell asleep again (probably crashed out).
He woke up and he found there were a lot of voices of people talking. As he was still lying on his back, he turned again and found one of his friend has fallen asleep on the chair but with his head on the table. There were a lot of strangers talking around his sleeping friend. The over window was just beside the front and he was surprised to find an elderly well dressed woman looking at him from outside. She was smiling at him and waving a bright yellow scarf. Confused he angrily shouted at the rest and wondering what the hell they want. Fortunately or unfortunately, he fell asleep again from the alcohol that he was consuming the other night.
He was woken by one his friend the next day with a bad hangover as they had to leave before 12pm. As he was leaving the room he asked his friends whether they know who the strangers and whose little brother is. His friends look puzzled and said that they did not see anybody and even joked that my neighbor’s son probably had too much to drink and drugs. Confused he did not say anything besides he wasn’t sure his friends were just messing with him.
As he was getting to leave he saw in the corridor the bright yellow scarf lying in the corridor!
I heard that he does not take hard liquor or any illegal drugs anymore.
