Real Ghost Stories

My Neighbour's Grandpa


This is the story of my neighbour's grandpa in Pakistan. I am from Pakistan and I know that at least 1 out of 2 people will have a personal ghost story (even I do, but I will post them later). So our "ghost" in this story is a beheaded character. My neighbour told me that near his grandpa's house, there used to be an alley which people didn't want to go during late hours.

There was a rumour that a beheaded person often scares people passing through that alley alone. So our hero (grandpa) was not quite believing this rumor and was also ignorant. He happened to be late to go to his house and while he was about to leave his people warned him to avoid that alley. But as the grandpa was ignorant he didn't listen to that.

So now he makes a decision to pass through that alley, and so he did, without a second thought. When he almost left the alley he saw a man approaching him towards the alley. Then the man looked at grandpa when he was near him and asked him if he had a cigarette. Grandpa refused and said that he does not smoke but the man kept insisting him to check his pockets and "check here - check there" and the grandpa was starting to heat up. Grandpa left yelling and ignoring the man. As he left the man at the back again said, "Hey do you have a cigarette?" - so the grandpa turned around saying, "LOOK MAN...!" but as he turned around he saw the man holding his head in his right hand like how you hold a helmet. So the brake grandpa was shaken from his head to his toe nails... And ran away. Freaky!

Very terrible I can't imagine even in my dreams a person carrying his own head. This is very spooky man. This is the scariest one I have read until now.

Assalam o aleikum Wahid, I read your story and what makes it interesting is that a user named Asad has posted about his friend's grandfather's story which happens to be exactly the same, the only difference is that here the ghost was asking for cigarettes and there it was offering them... Check it out if you want to, Asad is from Pakistan too, maybe your neighbour happens to be Asad's friend:-)
Anyways,nice one, enjoyed reading it even though was second time;-) scaryy as it was

Glad to hear from you 😊 I hope all's well.
It's not that I'm scared but the feeling just didn't make me feel so good I guess.
I have a friend who lives in Dubai, but I'm not sure where.

Take care and Much Love,

Hey There, IamWAHID!
Hopefully your neighbours' grandpa doesn't still pass that alley. 😐
If I was him I would have learnt a lesson, lol.
I'm interested cause you live in Pakistan, I live in an island close to Madras, well pretty close. 😊
It's called Sri Lanka, try and check it out if you find the time.

Take care,

yo thanks shane. And to princesskatie, ofcourse a man would run from the place he spots such an incident. By the way he was not my grandpa, my neighbours. 😜

Makes you wonder what would have happened if he had given this entity a smoke. Interesting story IamWAHID. Kind of has the feel of an urban legend to it, wouldn't you say? Thanks for sharing it with us.

Peace, Love, and Luck be with you.

Wow what did your grandpa do after when he saw the man holding his head. Its kind of funny actually but disgusting in a way . Did your grandpa learn his lesson to listen to others. 😊

Dear IamWAHID,

Interesting a ghost who chose to go around being decapitated (beheaded) and carrying his own head. Now that would be a very interesting ghost sighting to see, as well as to research the history on. I would not say your neighbor's grandpa was ignorant. He is just one of those people who will believe something when they see it or experience it for themselves first head in hand. ;) I guess he now believes in ghosts. Appreciated the story, --Abby
