Most of the people I know have different stories to tell about paranormal experience: from white ladies, to kapres. apparitions and noises made by these beings.
My best friend Rico once told me his horrific experience with the unknown. He has been experiencing odd things for quite a long time now but he choose to ignore them, believing that these were just fragments of his imagination.
Sometimes, he would call me in the wee hours of the morning just to tell me that he had dreamt of his dead relatives talking to him in his dreamland. I normally ignored those times believing that my friend was only making pranks. I know he doesn’t believe in supernatural things.
But sadly, those mystical entities kept on haunting him and telling him that they exist in our world. Many have said that he has the gift to see things that the ordinary person could not. But Rico could not. But Rico could not accept that fact. And for him, being a clairvoyant is like living with a curse.
One Saturday evening, he was quietly relaxing in his room. His parents were out of town to attend a convention, so Rico was left on his own. It was already 2 a.m., and he still couldn’t get to sleep. He got up and slid in a DVD in his player, hoping that a movie will make him fall asleep.
While watching, he suddenly heard noises that seemed to be coming from the backyard, as if men were digging the ground. He also started hearing weird whispers and murmurs in a language he could not make sense of Rico still managed to concentrate on the film he was watching.
But minutes after, the noise was already getting to his nerves. The digging was getting irritatingly louder. Finally, he got up from bed and took a peek at the window. But all he could see was total darkness. No one was there. Oddly, the hoises were still there.
Again, he just ignored what he was hearing. He thought maybe it was just his uncle, who was also their neighbor, who was creating such noise. Suddenly, the noises stopped and Rico was already sleepy. He was almost asleep when a figure of a lady appeared in front of him. At first he thought maybe he was just dreaming or imagining things.
But when the figure was coming closer towards him, Rico suddenly felt a gush of cold air touching his skin. He even saw his bed sheets inexplicably moving as if somone was trying to come near him. And that was the time that he knew he wasn’t dreaming at all. His head started to ache. He couldn’t even move a single muscle in his body.
To his surprise, his blanket was pulled down, as if something or someone was lying beside him and hugging him. He even felt an icy cold air touching his lips.
This is it! I cannot stand his anymore! he thought aloud. He instantly got up from bed and moved to his parent’s vacant room.
The following morning, he told his parents about that weird experience. Obviously, they just laughed to him. His mother even ecolded him, telling him not to stay up late anymore. But Rico was sure of what he had seen and heard.
He knew he wasn’t imagining at all. The next evening, he was paranoid. He tried to sleep early with lights on because he didn’t want to experience that creepy event again.
Next morning, he was glad he had a very good sleep. No one or nothing disturbed him. No horrifying nightmares. No dead people disturbed his sleep which gave him a big relief. Maybe his mom was right. It was just his imagination, maybe…
When Rico got up fix his bed, he almost fainted upon seeing what had happened to his room. There was blood everywhere-on his bed, on the sheets and pillows, and there were footprints of blood on the floor!
He ran outside his room and called his mom. His mom immediately went to his room and they both saw the splattered blood. His mom knew it was real blood and those footspteps were not of his son’s.
She tool a very good look at the footsteps and she could say that the size of the footsteps were that of a woman. But who could that be? His mom called his two sisters and asked them if they were the ones responsible for the mess.
Both of his sisters said that they did not do anything since they were asleep the whole night. His mom looked at Rico very intently. She could see that his son was was really frightened. Soon, Rico’s mom sought the help of a friend who was a paranormal expert.
His name was Mang Erning. When Mang Erning went to their home, the man instantly told them that he could feel a strong presence inside the room. Then after touching all the walls inside the room and after offering prayers, Mang Erning walked towards Rico, touched his head and spoke a Latin prayer.
His mom asked if everything would turn out fine after that, Mang Erning looked at Rico and then to his mom and said:
“They will not leave this place. But don’t worry. They will not do anything to harm you. They are just fond of Rico. One thing more, they want to give something to your son. And also, there is a female ghost who is attracted to Rico that’s why she is always here. She’s the one who made all this mess to get Rico’s attention.”
The very next day, Rico moved out to his room. He immediately rented a flat here in Manila where he thought he can live in peace. maybe his nightmares would dissappear since he already moved out from his place. But he was wrong.
Up to now, he can still see that lady ghost in his dreams. She would hold his hand and beg him to come back to his room.
