So here goes the story of my very first paranormal experience. This happened to me when I was 6 years old. I was accompanied by my best friend with this experience, let's call him Pat, who was 9 then.
Before I start, I would like y'all to know something about the locality I live in. I live in a 4 storey building and behind this building is a huge open ground which has now been converted into a garden around a couple of years ago. This ground had a huge tiles factory. On one of the working days of this factory, a fire broke out killing 23 workers. After this incident, the tiles factory was abandoned. This abandoned factory has always been famous for being haunted and a prime spot for some anti-social activities. I've experienced things here myself for more than once, but that's for another time.
Now that we are clear with the background, I shall move further. Me and my friends happened to be huge fans of the game 'Hide and Seek'. Usually we enjoyed playing this game after it gets dark, since hiding would be easier. Me and my friends would gather after dinner at around 10:30 PM and play until 11:30 PM, since it was our beloved summer break. The game limits were fixed to be our society compound, which provided enough space for this game.
Being naughty kids, I and Pat decided to hide in another society compound, adjacent to ours. Funny how we were the ones who fixed the limits and we were the only ones to cross these limits, LOL.
So, I stood there, at the farthest end of the compound with Pat standing right behind me. We would peep by the building wall to check if the seeker is approaching. A quick note, my building and the building of the compound we were hiding in has the same facing towards the ground. Considering the direction we were facing, the ground happened to be on our left, with the compound wall, about 6 feet high, between it and us.
A very important information, we had a friend named Floyd who would play with us but was absent that day since he had to visit his grandparents. This information will make sense to y'all as we move further with the story.
I and Pat were enjoying our fun time hiding, laughing about how we outsmarted others, when suddenly we heard a voice coming from the ground saying, "Hey Shubh (me) and Pat, can I play too?" followed by an eerie laughter, as if mocking us. You probably won't believe me as I say this, but this voice exactly sounded like that of Floyd's! I and Pat couldn't stop wondering as to what could Floyd be doing here, when he is supposed to be miles away from us. Being amazing climbers, I and Pat climbed the compound wall quickly to check but we found NO ONE! It only took us a few seconds to climb the wall, so no one could've been that fast to run off, if with an intention to prank us. Also, we heard no one running off either.
Realizing that it's not a very good idea to wait a second longer, we made a run towards our respective homes. The two of us were down with fever for the next 3 days and needless to say, we no longer continued to play after 9:30 PM.
So that's how I think I was introduced to the paranormal and like always, I don't have a logical explanation to this. I know I'm not very good with writing stories but I hope y'all enjoyed reading my story. Sorry if you find it long. I will be posting my other experiences related to the ground in the coming future. Any inputs will be appreciated. Thank you for reading my story.
