I've mentioned that I already moved back to our house in my hometown in my previous story "the virtual entity". Our house is newly built, we moved here last 2014.
I have a niece and a nephew who love staying in my room. One day my niece was in my room and we were playing with my make up. She noticed that I have a dream catcher hanging on my AC, I bought it in Baguio City. (I attached 2 photos of my room so you'll have an idea)
She asked me to give it to her because it's her favorite color and no one has ever given her a dream catcher. She also told me that maybe bad dreams would go away if I give it to her. I agreed and she immediately went to their room and showed it to her mom. (Our house has 4 bedrooms upstairs and 3 downstairs which includes maid's room and driver's room). In the Philippines it's pretty normal to have extended families at home.
Few days after giving the dream catcher, my niece's mom (my sister-in-law) went to my room and asked me to get the dream catcher, she told me she doesn't want to touch it. She then told me what my niece have been experiencing after I gave the dream catcher.
"Loca, mula nung binigay mo ung dream catcher sa kanya lagi na syang nagsasabi na may anino daw sa banyo namin tsaka sa walk in closet. Nung minsan naman may nakita syang paa daw sa closet. Kunin mo na to ayoko ng hawakan" (Loca, ever since you gave her the dream catcher, she started seeing shadows in our bathroom and walk-in closet. She even told me she saw a pair of feet in our closet. Get it now, I don't want to touch it.) said my sister-in-law.
I put the dream catcher back in my room. Few days after my sister-in-law talked to me, I went in their room to ask if my niece still sees the shadow, she said my niece hasn't told her anything after I removed the dream catcher from their room.
I thought the shadow would stop bothering her, yesterday (01/22) afternoon, my niece stayed in my room again and watched cartoons, she told me she wants to go to her mommy because she wants to have some snack, my niece is turning 5 this March. I told her she can go back to their room, but she told me 'Ayoko punta alone, may shadow dun sa room ni tito' (I don't want to go back alone, there's a shadow in uncle's room). I told her, "No baby, shadows aren't real" then she told me that they were. She asked me to accompany her "Hatid mo na ako kase takot sila sayo, yung shadow ayaw sayo, kasi sabi nila lalaban mo daw sila" (Please accompany me back to our room, the shadows don't like you, shadow told me that you fight them).
I was shocked by this, maybe it was just her imagination. But sometimes she cries because of the shadows and it scares her. I'm scared for my niece. I told her parents to visit a priest and have my niece blessed.
