Ghost Stories from Sanuj

Tall Dark Sranger on 2016-02-22

This happened to me when I was fifteen. I have a cousin who is two years younger than me and when she hit puberty, or when she became a big girl, as we say here, my uncle and aunt decided to have a party. (In Sri Lanka, it is a matter of celebration when a girl hits puberty.) It was a dinner party a...

Thanks and I'm glad you liked it. I just wanted to say what I experienced in detail rather than what I felt.

Now that you've mentioned it, there is a folk legend about an entity related to cattle called "the Shepard". Some believe its a god and some believe it's a demon who hangs around cattle safeguarding them or stealing milk from cows.

Although I've never met anyone who actually saw it, according to the legend it has a long stick or a bell or both. So that checks out.

But the problem is the height. It is said that the Shepard is very short fellow. Not taller than 4 feet. Some say it is so small it can walk under a cow standing tall.

It could be what I saw was this fella but what I saw was very tall and I distinctly heard ony two feet hitting the ground so, back to square one I guess...

Well, even in daylight, if a normal person of average height say,5'10" was to walk by the hedge, I'll only be able to see his or her head from where I was sitting and that's if the person walked nearside of the hedge. So when I saw those two dots a good three feet above the hedge, I assumed whatever it was, has to be very tall.

I think what I saw were eyes. They were like cat eyes or any other nightly creatures eyes that glow in the dark or in a very little light.

I never saw anything except for those eyes and I only heard the cow bell. Never saw it.

[at] Tweed I only told my brother about this but it was about 4 or 5 years after. I didn't mention this to anyone at that time because I wasn't sure what I was going to say or if anyone would take me seriously.

In those parts 10 is like the latest you could be out. May be it was something that someone else also knew about but though it make me wonder, it wasn't that scary of an incident. So I guess I kind of forgot the thing altogether until now that is.
