It was a cloudy afternoon. Christmas break had just begun and kids in our village were so excited. They were all outside their homes playing different kinds of games, myself included.
I eventually became tired so I decided to get myself home to have a drink. As I entered the house, I heard my brother asking my sister to take him a photo with the camera of her new Nokia phone. While I was having a glass of water, my brother positioned himself beside the Christmas tree. I went behind my sister to have a closer look; however, just before my sister took the shot I saw a woman passed behind my brother. She was wearing a white vain and a white dress. Her eyes were all white. I mean, yes she doesn't have a pupil. It made my eyes wide open. I asked my sister if I could take a look at my brother's photo but she said that she deleted it with a scared look on her face.
This second story took place few years after my first experience. My mother gave me a Walkman that has a flashlight as a Christmas gift which I was really fond playing of. Ever since I was a kid I was already suffering from insomnia. I would fell asleep for about 2 to 4 in the morning which, of course, gave me the habit of waking up late.
It was about 3 days after Christmas when this weird thing happened. It was past 12 midnight and I was still wide awake. Listening to the FM radio of the Walkman started to bore me since all of the stations started playing old songs which I can't relate. I remembered my Walkman's flashlight and started playing with it, turning it on and off. I went out of bed, headed to the bathroom and pointed my flashlight and started flickering it, waving my hand all around which gave the light a disco ball effect. Because the whole house was totally dark, I really did enjoy playing my Walkman's flashlight.
I begun to feel tired and sleepy so I decided to go back to my room. I laid down my bed facing the wall and listened to the songs on the radio. Because I was so fond of my Walkman's flashlight, I still continued to flicker it on and off. When I turned the light on something made me stop from doing so.
In the button's reflection. I saw someone (or something?) behind me, standing at the edge of my bed. It was a faceless woman in white dress with a shoulder-leveled hair. She was just there, standing behind me. I guess she's just staring at me. I was frozen and can't move in fear. My blanket was covering my feet and I can't even grab it to cover myself. I forgot how long I was staring at her but I remember myself turned off the light and started to grab my blanket, prayed until I fell asleep.
The next few years, my cousin joined a choir in our church within the village. We were just sharing stories, until she mentioned that she has two "gifted" co-choir members, kuya jeff and kuya miggy (not their real names). My cousin said that kuya miggy informed her that there are someone with us in our house. My cousin freaked out and asked who. He said that one of them was a faceless, shoulder-leveled hair woman hanging around the kitchen. Kuya jeff confirmed it and said he always sees the woman whenever they held their practices in our house.
I was shocked! The girl was real and not just the fragment of my imagination just like my mother used to tell me. From then on I had this eerie feeling that someone's watching me specially in the bathroom.
I hope you like my story.
