Carlo is a computer technician. One day, as  he was busy eating lunch,  his office line rang. He answered the phone. The call was from a certain Mrs. Armero saying that she  wanted her computer fixed. Carlo interviewed Mrs Armero about her computer to assess where the problem was. After a few minutes of phone conversation, Carlo told  Mrs Armero that he would  be at her  house at around 3 in the afternoon. Mrs Armero  gave Carlo her address.

Carlo was standing in front of Mrs Armero’s house at exactly 3 p.m. The  house looked abandoned and rather old. Carlo knocked and waited for someone to open the door, but no one came out.  He tried once again but still,  no one came to the  door.

He went a neighbor’s house and asked where Mrs. Armero was. “Mrs Armero? She has  been dead for  more than 20 years! She was a hit-and – run victim,” the neighbor replied. “But Miss, Mrs. Armero just called out company and said  that she  wanted her computer fixed!” said Carlo. “Well, let me show you the inside of her house if you don’t want to believe me,”  said the neighbor, annoyed.  So they went inside the house, which was unlocked, and Carlo  was startled at what he saw -there was no furniture inside the house. Nothing but dust.

“Mrs Armero went out  of her house.  She was too busy using her computer for burning CDs,” the neighbor said. They then went  out of the house and they went back to the neighbor’s house,” Would you like to have some iced tea first before you leave?” asked the neighbor. “Uh, no thanks! Carlo  said as he hurriedly left the house. When Carlo got  back to their company, it was already 7 in the evening. If Mrs. Armero is dead, then why (or how)  did she call our company? Carlo was  puzzled.

The phone rang and Carlo  answered it. “Why didn’t you fix my computer?” the   voice said.  He realized who was calling-Mrs Armero! He put the phone down  immediately, freaked out. Suddenly, the lights went out and he saw a figure  floating. it was a figure of a woman. She floated near Carlo  and started to strangle him.

Carlo caught  a glimpse of the figure’s face and hands as he was struggling -her face was bloody and  her hands were full of wounds.   He was about to  pass out from lack of oxygen when he felt his lighter on his  pocket. In his desperation to ward off the image, he lit the lighter right on the image’s face. It vanished! As soon as  the image was gone, the power was restored. Scared,  Carlo took out his rosary and prayed  for the soul of Mrs. Armero.

He assumed  that the image was that of is phantom customer.  After the incident, Carlo would be startled  by the  sound of a phone ringing. Though Mrs Armero hasn’t called again, Carlo still  couldn’t get over his fear.
