Greetings to all YGS readers. My name is Mayank and I hail from Patna,India. This happens to be my fourth narration and I hope you would bare with me just as you had done before. The story that I am narrating is the latest and the very second paranormal incident that I have experienced until date.
First let me introduce you to the plot. I am a second year engineering student and so I am a scientific minded and skeptic person who doesn't easily give way to the supernatural. This incident took place on a highway at night in the month of June. We had just taken our end semester examinations with which one whole year of our four-year-course had successfully been completed.
We anticipated a 2-month long summer vacation ahead. Surely each and everyone one of us was eager to go home ASAP. Despite the rush at the railway booking site (which only my Indian friends would understand) I was able to book a ticket which bore on it the "confirm" status. But my last semester paper was scheduled exactly a week prior to the date of journey. That meant I had to sit idle for a week.
That was not acceptable so I asked my classmate Lucky (his nickname) if I could stay with him at his home which was located in a town nearby. It was a 2-hour long journey on a car.
Now let us come to the main part of the story. I and Lucky hired a Scorpio (a heavy vehicle meant for rigorous road trips) to reach Lucky's home. The driver arrived at 10 pm (2 hours late). It was getting pitch dark and we just jumped on to the vehicle. The driver started the engine and drove us away from our Boys Hostel.
We did not know then that the dull journey would give us some Goosebumps on the way. I remember the time. It was 11:20 pm by my watch. The road which seemed populated at first now appeared somewhat secluded and less frequented. Suddenly an adult dog, out of nowhere, came running towards our car. It's frantic path of run suggested that he deliberately wanted to get hit by the vehicle. The driver could not save the dog and it got hit.
We were sure of this when we heard the loud screeching wail and by the jerk we experienced we could tell that the animal had been squeezed. The driver immediately stopped and we got down to see the dog. To our surprise, horror or dismay whatever you may call it, we could not see any trace of the poor animal. It was a broad road and we were being driven along near the edge where stood a school building. The school had high boundary walls (something like 15 feet high).
Where could the dog have possibly be gone?. I was just trying to figure out when Lucky told me that it was an apparition, a ghost. He told me what he had experienced when went to Shimla a year ago. He along with his family was travelling in a car in the evening hours when exactly the same thing happened.
What sort of ghost was it? Can you please help.
