This Story happened in year 2006 when my grandmother on my father side died. I was still in elementary and was 11 years old back then.
When my grandmother died, my father's family decided to move her to province called Aklan in the Philippines. They want to have her funeral there. In the Philippines, there's a tradition that when someone dies, they need to keep the body in the family's house for 5-7 days, so that the other relatives will have time to visit and look at that person for the last time. So, my grandmother's funeral take place at my father's family house in the province.
In that 7 days of funeral, there's also a different kind of games they prepared for visitors... Tong-its, lucky nine, bingo, poker, you name it. But in most games, they're basically using cards. And of-course as adults, card games are better if there's money involved in it.
One night, I think if I am not mistaken it's the last night of my grandmother's funeral so, it's the 7th day. I don't remember the exact time but I think it's past midnight because they are distributing the midnight snacks at the time. Anyway, that night, me and my cousins are playing Bingo (google it if you don't know). It's the last day so, we also have money involved when playing it. Our parents gave it to us. And where we played, we have this long table for bingo players only, and beside it, are long chairs to pair with it. The table is like a long table you can see in royal movies with lots of chairs. But, the only difference is that the chair is also long. They make it this way as to minimize the use of space by putting individual chairs.
I was sitting closer at the end of the chair and table. The leader of the Bingo who's calling the letter and number is on the other side of the table from where I am. As far as I can remember, I don't have anyone on my left side that time. Because like I said, I was sitting at the end of the chair. And on my right side was my cousin who's also playing, in front of me is another cousin who's playing. We were playing happily, enjoying, laughing, when suddenly, a boy pat my shoulder from behind me.
I turned around and ask, "what?". The boy answered, "they're calling for you" while he is pointing at the direction of our house. I look at the direction he's pointing and saw my parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts, standing on the balcony. They are waving their hand at me, you can tell it's a sign to go to them. And of-course, as a child, what do you expect? A child was interrupted while playing, of course I will get mad. I was still sitting when I ask them using just lip sign "why?!". My grandmother on my mother side said. "Come here, just a minute, we're just going to ask you something". Feeling frustrated, I stand up and go to them. The distance from where I was sitting to them is more like 10 steps far.
When I entered the balcony of the house where they're standing, my mother immediately hold my hand and drag me to our bedroom and let me sit on the bed. Getting confused, I ask her "What? I was still playing." I saw my aunts looking at the door of our bedroom whispering to each other, and then my grandmother entered the room and said, "just stay here for the time being". I ask "why?" then, I saw from the door that they also called my all cousins playing bingo inside the house. And then, one of my aunt who just came and entered the room said "It's gone." feeling confused, I ask again. "what? What is it?" then my mother sit in front of me in the bed and said...
"While you and your cousin playing bingo, there's a black lady, sitting beside you on your left side. Her eyes are pure red. Staring at you without blinking."
After that, I didn't go outside to continue playing the bingo. All my cousins are also forbidden to go outside by their parents.
