In October 2010, we moved to Jakarta, Indonesia. We found this apartment which was in an old building but had spacious rooms and beautiful gardens. Soon after settling down we got a domestic helper who used to cook, clean and iron. She, as a live-in helper, had a room which was outside the apartment. There was a bell in kitchen in case we need her while she was in her room.
So, the things started when one morning my helper asked me that why we called her at 2am. I was quite surprised and politely replied that we were all asleep and no one did but she was adamant. She told me that there was a constant bell from 2am and she came out of her room and waited for us to open the door. We ignored it by thinking she was a young girl, maybe she heard something in her dream.
Gradually strange things started happening like the lamps in the living room would be automatically turned on every morning or the main door unlocked. My husband started complaining that I was being careless about things. Then, one day after the kids left for school, I turned on my laptop to check my emails. There was this entangled string lying beside the laptop. While typing the emails, I felt something moving. I slightly turned my gaze and to my surprise, I saw the entangled string was opening in front of my eyes. I was speechless and frozen, it was as if someone had been carefully trying to open it. I couldn't move, I wanted to run but couldn't get up and in front of my eyes that ball of string was straightened up by an invisible hand.
