What I'm about to share with you is what I have experienced a
Couple of weeks ago on my way home from work.
My home is located in a mountain village 9 kilometers away from the nearest highway. It's really a remote area where you need to pass through an abandoned Commercial building.
One night from work, I went to fetch my fiance from her school in Downtown area of Cebu. It already 8pm by then, she's a Law Student so that's pretty normal for us. Then we grab some fast-food on the way. We also bought food for her Truck driver (she owns a dump truck).
So, we decided to hitch a ride on her dump truck on its way home from delivering sand. It's already 10pm at that time. So we are still in the city and we have to travel 15km to the South to reach our town (Minglanilla). From the highway, we need to travel 7-8km to reach the village in which she lives. But she and I don't live near with each other. I still need to walk a 1km or more to reach my house, so they just dropped me off at the vantage point near the abandoned building I was talking about, and I started walking down the road, its 11pm by then.
First, let me describe the road I'm walking on. It's a well maintained road where you can notice some cracks on the cement. When I'm walking home, to my left would be the compound of the abandoned commercial Building which now has several roaming guards (theft is common), also to my right would be wilderness. As in trees, bushes and a river down the cliff. There would be light from guard outpost but most of the way would be dark. As you approached the near end of the road you would go through beneath gigantic trees of Acacia and Camachile rowed along the road, this would be pitch black even if there's moonlight, and here will be the subject of my experience.
As I walked along the road, I passed 3 guard outpost already, all of which has no lights (odd!). Almost near the 4th guard post, its lit but no one is on the watch (odd again). After that would be the pass beneath the trees in which I caught a unusual scent, a burnt candle.
Now, when you smell a burnt candle out of nowhere it's always associated to spirits. So I smelled burnt candles as I walked past those trees then this creature suddenly screamed, startled me. Mind you, I was sweating already from the walking and also by the fact that I'm not ALONE. You can't imagine how afraid I am that night, but I didn't show it. I flashed my cellphone's light towards the bushes, I can't see it but it's moving away from me (I guess). It's rustling the leaves but I can't seem to catch a glimpse of it. Its growl sounded like a BOAR, yes a BOAR. It sounded quite big and I feel it's close but I really can't see it.
I did walk fast, no turning back what's behind me, I know something is behind me, observing. I got home, drenched in sweat but safe.
I always walk down that road whenever me and my fiance hitch-hiked.
That place was also associated with a dog which turned into a human, a neighbor of mine witnessed it when he passed through that one time.
He just yelled at it "way unay silingan" which is a local dialect that means "No neighbors included" then sprint out. When we say "no neighbors included" means that we kind of suspected who that was and remind them to bother someone else or not bother someone at all.
Now, if that was indeed a normal boar, I can't imagine how can it move away so fast? And is the smell of candle associates to that creature? I'm quite doubtful whether or not what I have experience was related to my neighbor. A lot of people already saw that BOAR, they described it as big, with red eyes, and seems to be hairy.
There's a lot of unanswered experience and this one is the least of it.
