Real Ghost Stories

The Running Boy


This story happened during my heydays as a theatre performer in RTU (Rizal Technological University). I used to participate in overnights before due to the last minute rehearsals and polishing. Afterwards, we would doze off and prepare for our shows first thing in the morning. Eventually, I encountered a lot of creepy stuff and did dread a night that scared the hell out of me.

We were doing a major musical that time. (It was entitled "1896".) The show was a success in the long run. We were so busy putting our make-ups on and changing costumes, etc. When the company call was held shortly, we wrapped our things up. Risers and improvised props were then brought upstairs since the lift wasn't working.

Five girls needed to carry a large riser and were headed to 5th floor. As we headed back to the main theatre, something turned odd. The air got so cold, we really had goosebumps. One just decided to hum since we were all girls and were pretty scared. Alas! I almost cursed my colleague's name (the one who hummed) 'cause it was as if she attracted a very negative vibe. Footsteps were already heard. The air grew colder than when we're on the 3rd floor. It just got worse when we stepped on the fourth floor. Right before our eyes was the shadow of a small boy, running, playing and looking at our direction across the staircase! God knew we all shouted and didn't mind how heavy the riser was. The rest of the group just stared wildly because we all started to cry when we reached the gymnasium.

Hello angeloordiales. Thanks for giving me your opinion. I know a lot of things are explained by Science nowadays and yeah we must really be logical at all times but man, until these days, I can still imagine how that fateful night almost killed us all. Well, hope to catch up with you. Here's my email. Sigawnibatingaw [at] I hope we will be able to talk more about this. Thanks again.

Hello batchiebones, I understand that the situation of your group is been hard, But logically there are no such thing as a ghost. Our minds play with us and creating such an imagination because of the ambience of the place. I also went on rizal technological university and I never seen or feel something strange like that you are saying. But I respect your situation.

Thank you

Angelo Ordiales

Thanks SDS. Do you have a facebook account? Can I add you up?

I am pretty positive in meeting you. See you around SDS. Indeed, I am fascinated in Hindu culture and mahatma gandhi.

Oh dear, as far as I know, there was a little boy who happened to be the youngest son of a lady utility in our university. It was said that the spirit of that kiddo really started to roam the whole school after he died because of an accident. Every year that utility would offer a bar of chocolate... By the way, can I ask for your email? Thanks...

Hi batchiebones,

hi batchiebones,
after reading your story I can only say, you know that they are sprits every where and sometimes we have an encounter with them... So forget that and keep in mind this kind of incidents can happen with anyone anywhere so try to 'be brave' and god bless you.

Hello batchiebones, I could understand how scared all your girls would have been at that point of time. But I would like to ask you did you actually make any investigation into the aspect like if anybody else has seen or experienced such encounter. It could be a residual haunting but still if you can give some more inputs, if you have inquired with anybody else, we would be in a position to express our views.

Thanks for sharing.

Regards and respects to you.
