Greetings to all readers I am happy to say that after I had gotten a slap on my leg, nothing else has been happening at home. Things seemed to have calmed down for now.
The next story I am about to relate happened to my mother just after she had gotten married some 35 odd years back, the topic of unexplainable and supernatural stuff had come up in our conversations when she had related this story to me, it's not the first time I've heard it from her, but I have decided to post it for everyone to read.
My mum and dad's habit they enjoyed doing was sitting outside by our front door steps or on the veranda, especially after a long day of work and talk while my dad had a few drinks, this was a habit they had right up until my dad had passed away.
Now the place they had lived at the time had a dense woods about four meters away from the house and since the yard was situated at the end of a dead end road no one had bothered to fence the property so it was very easy to go into the woods from the side of the yard which my parents front door was situated (from the entrance of the house the woods would be to the right).
On this one particular night, during summer they had decided to stay out a little longer than expected as it was very humid, and as they were talking, they heard a loud shrill voice of a woman screaming. The scream had come from the direction of the woods in the quiet of the night. That loud scream had taken them by surprise, my dad wanted to go to into the woods to see who or what screamed, however my mum, thoroughly terrified by now, knew that no one would be in woods at that particular time of the night and had to drag my insistent father inside the house and locked the door. When my mum had looked at the clock to see the time it was just past midnight.
