Real Ghost Stories

The Shrieky Voice

 

This is a story that was told to me by my father when I was about 5 years old. I still remember it probably because of it's eerie context and the imagination I perceived at that age which I can still picture effulgently. In Pakistan, it's almost like a tradition for older people to pass down horror stories which they lived through to the young'uns.

My father was born and raised in a village back in the 50's. Not very populated, a rural setting. My father, his brother (my uncle), and his uncle were traveling by a horse carriage to the some other village, as cars were not very capaciously driven back then. It was nighttime, somberness surrounded their path. The only sound to be heard of was the horse's hooves, and the Coachman's whip.

Soon to be heard was some other sound, a sound that my father would never forget for the rest of his life and would pass on to me. It was a shrieky cry which called out all three of their names and kept saying "wait for me," "take me with you also." My father and his brother, being little kids at that time, got really scared and clutched on to their uncle.

What really sends shivers down my spine and still does to date is that when their uncle told the coachman to speed up the carriage, they still heard the voice as if it were traveling at the same speed. Theoretically, that's not possible because a horse can run faster than a human. Also, the path which persisted their journey was used at night but only by carriages, not on foot. Thanks for reading.

Scarlettsnowe, Thanks! I love The Doors, Lizard King forever!:D I'm a HUGE fan. Actually, this isn't way off topic. Jim Morrison was said to have been possessed by the dead Indians he witnessed die in a car crash when he was about 4 years old, thus the whole Shaman thing. ❀

Amie_16, the village is Ferozwala, in Gujranwala. We don't live there anymore. We still have some relatives that live there. However, we do go and visit when we go back for vacation everytime.:)

[at] CodyMist, I'm pretty sure they were alone. Like I said before, no human can run faster than a horse, and that recondite voice was traveling along with the horses speed. My father told me the voice sounded like an old day. You're probably right, it could've been a wandering spirit from a calamity which struck that path.

Hmmm there is also a possibility but alittle uncertain that a woman or man you didn't exactly say the gender of the voice but there could have been someone who died on the road after being left or possibly falling out of a cart starvation or dehydration and she was asking your father's uncle or the coachman for a ride back to her town and/or village once again it could have been a evil spirit wanting to trick the coachman that sounds very eerie though

Gosh! Are you sure they were alone? And which village exactly it was in Pakistan? Because I'm from Pakistan as well I'm from Rawalpindi and maybe I've heard the name of your village.

Okay...this one definitely gave me the chills! Especially happening to young kids! That would have been terrifying for anyone let alone kids. Do you think it may have been someone who was killed along the road by way of maybe a murder, accident, or otherwise. This person may be wondering the area looking for a ride and not realizing that they are deceased. Just a thought. I wonder if there were any other happenings along this stretch of road?

I totally believe in ghost and to me it sounds like this was defiantly something unearthly and supernatural because it is certainly true that horses are faster then humans and an ordinary human being could not have run that fast. πŸ˜• πŸ˜• πŸ˜•

There are many other stories which some of my family members have told me. I shall post them too. He actually showed me that path when we went back for vacation, and it did look scary, lol. Many old and big trees, the path covered in their shadows. They say that "Churails" (name for a Witch in my language) live in them. 😨
