This is my first story on this site, though I have been a constant reader of stories in YGS.com.
This incident I'm about to narrate to you, was experienced by my maternal grandmother.
This incident took place when my mom was 6 years old. Back then in my mother's village, there used to be a lady whom people in the village claimed retarded.
It seems that she turned that after her husband passed away. She would roam around the entire village laughing and playing pranks on people, and would stay away from a particular house.
She would warn people to not to go near that house during night time, especially on a new moon night as she claimed the house to be haunted.
People would reject her words and tell people she's mentally retarded.
Well all this changed during one summer night. As in Indian villages people prefer to sleep outdoors during summer and on clear nights, so did my mother's family, which includes my grandma, grandpa, uncle and of course my mom.
At midnight my grandma woke up, only to see a person sitting on the roof of the so claimed haunted house. As grandma still had sleepy eyes she saw a blurred figure, but on wiping her eyes, she saw a horror of her life. This is the way she described the apparition- There sat a person with folded legs, with hands on her waist, long hair, big eyes and a long tongue sticking out from her mouth, staring at my grandma. So, grandma screams at the top of her voice.
All the villagers came running thinking it might be a thief. Grandpa woke up to see what happened and found grandma shivering. He consoled her, by the time the villagers arrived. Upon coming they asked as to what happened and my grandma narrated it to them, to which they said it would have been a bad dream and left. This was a newmoon night, and grandma was terrified. After that my mom's family never slept outdoors.
After this incident many people claimed of seeing that spirit at night, so people around that house stopped sleeping outdoors.
Some claim it to be an ancient spirit. Well no one knows for sure.
Sorry for making it too long.
I hope you enjoyed it.
Thanks for reading.
