One rainy night, my boyfriend and I went to our hardware store to stay and wait for my brother to fetch me. I had an extra key so we went inside to wait. The 3-story hardware store was already close and nobody was around except for the two of us.
We were bored so we decided to play cards. We checked the cards and found them to be complete. We played tong-its, but after a few rounds, the cards went spooky. All the cards we picked and put down were all the same- the seven of spades. We got really that we threw the cards away.
It was stil raining hard outside and we decided to stay in the old master’s bedroom. We had already forgotten about the game and I was really sleepy. I decided to take a nap while my boyfriend stayed up to watch over me. A little while later, my boyfriend woke me and told me to get up. We went outside and I saw that he was shivering and looked very scared. I asked him what had happened.
He told me that when I was sleeping, he thought he heard something upstairs but he didn’t mind it at first. As the minutes went by, he heard it again and it was coming nearer. He heard dragging footsteps on the staircase and they sounded like those of a big creature with chains locked around his feet.
That was when he woke me and urged me to go outside. I was spooked to hear what my boyfriend had described because our workers in the hardware store had described the same sound. Some of them had even quit their jobs because of it. There was another case when my friends and I stayed there for a project. It was later and all we had were instant noodles.
While cooking the instant noodle, I excused myself for a quick pee in the bathroom. My friends were so afraid that they followed me wherever I went. But when I returned, I saw them holding hands in the kitchen, slowly going around the gas range, their backs to me.
“Ano ba kayo? Anong ginagawa niyo diyan?”[ What are you doing there?”] I said, raising my voice. They turned to face me and they looked stunned. They asked me what I was doing behind them when they were following me in the kitchen. They even became angry with me for scaring them. I said that I had just come from the comfort room.
“Eh sino yung sinusundan namin kanina sa kusina, eh tatlo lang tayong nandito ( Then who were we following in the kitchen, when it’s only the three of us here)?” one of my friends said. After hearing her explanation, I freaked out and we all ran out, screaming. We even forgot the noddles we were cooking.
Until now, whenever there is a visitor or someone new in our building, the creepy stuff just keep on coming back….
