We were living then in a duplex house in Paranaque City. Actually, we rented it even though we were also occupying the second one it is just a small house with one room. We used to sleep in the living room because it was too hot to sleep in the bedroom. We would place a folding mat on the floor in the living room and there! So here's my story.
One peaceful evening me, my younger sister and my mother decided to sleep in the living room. I was lying near the door of our room. The door was just 2 inches away from me so if I turned left in case I bumped against the door.
I was sound asleep when all of a sudden I opened my eyes. I think it was around 2 am. Wondering why, I suddenly heard a soft sound like "tik-tik-tik", just like how a clock sounds. I thought it was coming from my left side so I tried to look but I'm not moving my head, just my eyes. Not expecting to see anything I was amazed (yeah, I was amazed) when I saw a girl sitting beside me. It was pitch dark but I could still see everything in the room since there was a little light coming from the outside into the room. The girl looked pale almost like a thick smoke but I could see her face. The door was half open and she was a mere 3 inch away from me. I looked at her for a moment and realized that she was holding a stick and hitting it against the door. I'm not sure if it was really a stick but I'm pretty sure that it is where the sounds came from. I looked back at her and I was shocked when she gave me a smirk which is like she knew something that I didn't. It was a bit scary.
Then I felt my mother stir. That's when I realized that I couldn't move my body. I looked at my mom who was putting my bed sheet over me and back to the girl, and was surprised because my mother did not notice the girl in front of her! I closed my eyes for a while and I felt my mother went back to sleep. As I opened my eyes again, I found the girl still there giving me that freaking smirk. Since I was still sleepy, I wanted her to disappear so I blinked my eyes hoping she'd vanish but she was still there. The most interesting part, I don't know what possessed me to do this stupid thing. But I tried to reach for her face and look into her eyes. We were very close to each other and that's when she dispersed into thin air.
Morning came, I told my mother what happened only to be surprised when she told me she heard that too when we were already asleep and she's washing the dishes.
I don't know if it's just my imagination since I was 8 years old then. But I'm really sure I saw her!
I have another story in connect with this little girl. I'll just tell it in my other story.
