It just turned Halloween this 2011 and I just found out that there's this kind of site which shares real supernatural stories mostly in the Philippines and the way each story I read encourages to share my story too. I have lots to share but I'll make it step by step starting from my first time.
So here goes. I live in a city located in the northern part of Mindanao. Way back in the 90's, our house was made of wood (maybe from Narra tree because of its strength), 2 floors and is located right in front of the road where jeepneys pass by. My grandmother said that the house was too old that their parents also lived in that house, note that my grandmother was in her 70's that time. We were kind of a late bloomer because our neighbours houses are made of concrete painted well and have colours. Unlike ours that stayed old school. I grew up like an ignorant kid, my parents didn't expose me that much to the real world, the meaning behind metaphors and things that arouses my fears (like I didn't know what 'fraternity' means until I was 2nd year high school). Anyway, in the first floor is where the kitchen is then the dining room, in the dining room there is a door that leads outside. Outside it is where the pig and pigpens are (family business). Next to the dining room is the living room and there's also a door that leads outside opposite to the other one. Outside is the garden. On the second, when you reach the top stair, is a bedroom. Go left then go right is another bedroom. From the stairs, go right and another right is where our room is. I know it's kind of complicated but there are many of us in the house. That time, 3 or 4 family would stay in the house. It's because my father has 7 sisters and 2 brothers, so that makes 10 of them and my other aunts just live 2 blocks away from the house. I know you're bored reading this so I'll go to the interesting one.
It was night and everybody in the house was asleep. I woke up, like I usually do, to pee. And right outside my room is an 'arinola' (something like a pot where I pee during night time because our comfort room is located outside the house and it's a long walk). Right where the 'arinola' is are windows where you can see the road and the pigpens and the mango tree. It just so happen that every night I pee, I see this lady sitting near the mango tree. Sometimes, near the pigpens or almost near the house of our neighbour. Being ignorant of what or who they are, I didn't mind and just tell my mother about that woman the next morning. My mother just asks me what she was doing and I answered just standing or sitting. I didn't know that everybody in the house also saw that woman at times until I was older. There was just this one time when I forgot to wash the 'arinola' and I left it in the comfort room. And because one night I really had to go, I went out the door in the living room that leads outside. As I was relieving myself, she was there. Right beside the orchids of my aunt. I didn't know it was scary so I didn't mind but I couldn't forget her face. She was beautiful. Hazel eyes, pointed nose, fair complexion and long black hair. She was wearing a dress that's like a 'carinosa', those dresses which have bumps on the shoulders.
The only sad thing about it is when I had the knowledge about ghosts and spirits, I never saw since then.
I know my story was quite boring but I'll be telling more of my experiences next time.
Thank you for this encouraging site (whoever started this).
