This is actually my first story which I am going to tell and is actually based on the encounter of my best friend who lives in the neighborhood. This experience is neither terrifying nor horrific but I am scared though, and a little worried about this incident.
So here we go, This first started on Monday, it was a bright sunny day with gentle breeze blowing over the tress, sound of birds' tweets and maybe a perfect soothing atmosphere to relax, I took a break from the classes in order to complete my notes. But decided to enjoy a little on my day off as I rarely get a chance to relax on weekdays, same fixed schedule of going to morning classes and then the afternoon classes with mock tests which continues until evening and after getting home take only a one hour break and start preparing for the weekly tests by revising the notes. So I hardly get any time to watch my favorite anime shows or to relax for a while. Maybe this is the reason why I hate weekdays the most. Though I am quite introverted person I love chatting on day to day matters. In short, I love gossiping whether the topic is important or not. Maybe this is my way of relaxing, and researchers say talking helps people to clear their frustration and tensions which is good for a peaceful mind, and maybe I am following it. For this purpose I believe Rachel (not her real name though) to be a good companion. She lives in the neighborhood so it is not difficult to talk to her anytime. So as soon as I finished my revisions and stuffs I texted her to come to my house. And she did so.
I was glad that she was available, cause that was nearly the time she had her afternoon classes. We didn't talk too long as she was in a hurry, maybe for 20 minutes or so. We talked mostly about the girly stuffs when she suddenly stopped and stared at the banana tree which grows in our garden, we never got any fruits from that tree though. She had a strange look on her face so I questioned "what's the matter? She replied isn't there something unusual with this tree?. I said "Really?" not quite understanding. She was about to say something when mom interrupted us, and then we realized that we are already late for our classes. Nothing happened that day or the day later, but for some reason I believe that Rachel can sense ghosts or something like that.
Then, on Friday Rachel came to our house with quite a puzzled look and said she saw some strange shadowy apparitions near that tree while returning home from her classes. I wasn't that shocked and thought of this as a joke and said that she is imagining stuffs and went to my classes, she still continued about those shadows until I said her to quit.
I returned home and was very tired and jumped on my bed and soon fall asleep, but then suddenly I woke from the tweet of my phone but ignored it and tried to sleep again but couldn't and finally decided to check the phone and while surfing through the chats saw a message it was from Rachel the message said "I saw them again, the shadows". This time I got mad and replied "cut it out already there is always a time for everything".
Nothing happened that night and when I woke up grandma was nagging about the flowers in the garden, when I reached there the garden was a absolute mess with the petals of the flowers scattered everywhere mostly near the banana tree. Everyone was thought that maybe it is the work of Tiger (our dog). But he was tied all night.
Now I'm a little scared about this thing and contacted Rachel she said that she sees shadows of two different persons standing near that tree. I was so scared that day that I hardly slept. It started getting worse when Rachel had nightmares about a woman standing under a banana tree in a similar garden looking at the direction of the store room weeping very badly, I can too feel negative energies flooding around the store room like I feel strange as if I am being watched. I am really scared but there is still a question that Rachel saw two different shadows but is having nightmares about only one and why she appears in Rachel 's dreams?
