I am from a small district in the state Chattisgarh from India. I am reading interesting stories in this page since 2013 and found it appropriate to post stories here. This is my 1st experience. My story is about the house in front of my house which was abandoned. People felt it creepy at night so me and two of my friends (let their names be X & Y). Sorry for grammatical errors.
Starting of the story was with a man. I was waking up until 2 am studying for exams and then someone screamed so loud that the whole colony woke up to see what's going on. There was a man (I'm not sure with his age maybe he's in his 20s) was screaming at something which wasn't visible and it was only visible to him and then he stopped. When we went near him, I knew he was drunk because of the smell. People ignored him as a drunkard but he was telling "there's a ghost in that peepal tree (I don't know its name in English but its scientific name is Ficus Religiosa) ". The tree was inside and it was a huge one that the previous house owner always worshiped it.
But there were some, too religious maybe, started whispering that he may have seen a chudail (female demon). Some ignored these and went back to home.
I was still thinking what it could be and then came the idea which I would never want in my life, I thought of going there with friends. Many of them refused as their parents won't allow, but I got three of them and finally decided to go over there and record at night 1 am.
So, as I was a 15 year teen at that time, I was curious that what I'll find there. We went without any attention. As I went there, I started to feel something bad. I ignored it thinking that it might be my brain because of the darkness there. At first, we went to bedroom and saw nothing but spider webs & rotten furniture.
A closet was also there wrapped with webs and we opened it with help of a stick. As it opened, my friends felt nothing but the cranking of its doors, but I felt that something came out of closet and so I asked them that did they saw that thing moving out of closet and they replied no. So far it was good, but when we moved near the peepal tree, Y started to feel something bad. I told him that I was feeling same but Y's condition was gone worse, he started looking up and then we also looked up to see what he was watching.
We were chilled and frightened after what we saw. There was a dark figure on the branch sitting there with eyes staring right to Y. Then he started circling his head slowly and then speed was increasing. I was chilled so hard after I saw that his iris & pupil was not there, his eye was full white. X shaked him and when he did so, he felt so cold by touching his hand and he told me that he was freezing. I now knew something wasn't good and there's a bad spirit in here.
To our luck, I had a locket which was blessed by a priest. I quickly took it out on my hand and then started chanting holy mantras. I made sure that X is not making eye contact with the spirit. Y stopped circling, his eyes came back and he asked us what happened. We quickly ran away from that place.
X & Y were going home back as quickly as possible and I told X to keep an eye on Y until he reaches home. I quickly ran to my room and turned the lights on because I wasn't able to sleep in dark. At morning, I came to know that Y was having high fever but he was relieved in a week by medicines. X was good but he was still shaking and he told me 2 days later that when I was chanting, he heard screams coming from above his head and when he peeped he saw yellow eyes and green iris just like a lizard. I thought that he was making it up but his face & fear was telling opposite.
But still, are spirits attracted to this peepal tree? Looking to Y's condition, it was a demon maybe. The good thing is that we all are safe now and we are never going to that location again. Now, the place is being cleared because for construction of new house. I hope that they will be safe in future and be safe from negativity.
Can anyone tell me what in the actual world was that?
Perhaps what you and your friends saw was some kind of elemental attached to that tree. Some are purportedly benevolent and good, some neutral, some evil. Perhaps it was such an elemental and may have been neutral, or even good, in nature and merely scared you because of it's appearance. Your buddy's fever may have been coincidental. Just a thought.
