It Happened To Us


It happened a year ago, when I was in college. I was living in a private mess of about nine students. Let me tell you about the surroundings before I start. Our building was single story one. The right side plot was vacant. On the left side there were two other buildings. In the last building a widow was living with her three sons. To the left of that building there was a large pond & a graveyard and a small hill nearby. On the back side of our building there was a thick teak forest.

It was one Saturday. Four members of our mess went to their home. So only me and my one friend Abdul were there. At that time there was no laptop or TV in our mess. So after dinner we got bored & started to gossip. The topic was about cricket, girls etc. I didn't know when it became 1:30 a.m. Suddenly dogs started barking. We ignored it. Because it's not a extraordinary thing in our locality. A lot of stray dogs were out there.

After 10 minutes both me and my friend heard the sound of the anklet of a woman along with Bangles. It was a very silent night so we could hear it clearly. The source of the sound was not far from our right wall toward the vacant plot. The gap between our wall & the boundary of vacant plot was merely 1 feet. Practically it was inaccessible. Because it was filled with thorny trees.

We both were engineering students, so we didn't panic & started thinking logically. I reminded that we locked our main gate at 10 p.m. The gate of the vacant plot was also locked for more than a year. So there was no possibility of anyone to enter except cats, dogs or thief (man definitely). It was impossible for a woman to enter in our plot.

Besides why a woman was walking in such a late hour?. The sound continued for more than 20 seconds. So we decided to go outside & take a look. When we came outside, there was nothing near the source of sound. Now we both trembled with fear. That night I didn't sleep. I spent more than a week in our building before, but never experienced such a creepy feeling. This time I was not alone.

We told all of our friends about the incident when they returned. They laughed at us. After a month to that incident it was one weekend. Five members of mess went to our home including me. So only a friend named Ankit was there. As he was alone, he called a old friend (from another mess) to come and live. To my surprise they also experienced the same as us.

The spelling of storey was changed to story by me (American spelling), as it flagged out as being misspelled. It was only after I hit published I realized that 'storey' is the English (British?) spelling for a single level building. You know we Americans - colour is color and so on. But as for the word 'single' I too have no idea where it came from - unless you have a ghost in your machine typing for you? Lol
Anyway, this accounting of yours puts me in mind of of another by Sceptic-Ari, called "Mystery Solved: A Ghost That Wasn't"
I'm not saying that your experience was also caused by his tormentor, but it is an idea, no?

this is in prior to my previous comment, that is about the 'storey' thing, the building we lived in, was actually a five storey apartment. I myself don't know how the word 'single' came in, anyway sorry for the inconvenience 😜

the word 'story' given hereby in the fourth line of the story, would actually should have been the word 'storey' which was caused due to a case of fast typing 😜 anyway, any inconveniences are deeply regretted. 😁
