This is an another incident at the ancestral house. It is Christmas vacation and the old house is lively again with laughter and noises. It was Christmas holiday of 1986 and my family of four, my father, mom, my brother and sister and myself just arrived 3:30pm. In the old house. My uncle with his wife and three children arrived at 4pm.
My whole family are all inside the master bedroom watching tv while my uncle's family were in the other room fixing their things. The yaya at that time was in the kitchen preparing some dinner for all of us. While still watching tv programs we heard 3 knocks and my mom quickly answered, "who is it? Come in". Nobody answered so we just brushed it off and continued watching tv.
The next moment we heard three knock again. My mom asked who it was but nobody was answering. So my father told my mom maybe it was yaya who was just shy to answer. So my mom went outside but nobody was in front of the door. She opened the door so wide so all of us saw that nobody was outside. My mom went to the other room to ask if they were the ones who was knocking, but they said that they were busy unpacking their things. So she went to the kitchen and asked our yaya if she happens to be out in our room and was the one knocking our door. Our yaya was confused and said that she never went to our room to knock because she was busy preparing our dinner.
Who could that be? Our door is a solid wood made of kamagong. It needs some force so that your knock could be heard inside the room. If nobody from us knocked at our door at that time, then who could it be? Then my father said that it could be the ghost of the old lady who died there a long time ago so all of us offered a prayer for her.
