I'm not sure this counts as a ghost story but I believe it is paranormal, and if not paranormal, it was a strange coincidence that makes me shiver.
I was riding the bus, I believe the 64, which tends to be a busy route (at least pre-pandemic times). This was around 2019. What I remember was there were people on the bus but it was not that full.
I usually keep to myself and just stare out the window. This time there was a lady going off on some kind of speech. I don't remember what she was talking about, but my memory seems to point towards her saying, "You're the light" or something like that. I felt a bit unnerved, but chalked that up to being paranoid. I just ignored it.
"I know you can hear me!" she shouts. Again I just ignore it.
"I see your eye twitch, is that a sign?"
Again I ignore it, but felt slightly more unnerved as if I am being watched. She goes off about me or someone being able to hear her. I figure she is just a crazy lady on the bus. If I kept quiet no one would be aware of this strange "conversation". The lady would just be talking to herself as far as everyone else is concerned. Maybe that's what I figured really was going on.
"I see your mouth twitch," the lady goes on.
I feel unnerved again, like as if there's something evil trying to invade my thoughts. Just a sinister feeling I'm trying to push away.
I quietly rebuke it in my head, "Get thee away from me, Satan, in Jesus's name!" Granted I didn't consider myself a full Christian, just believe parts, the parts about loving one another, and sins being forgiven. I'm not much into the wrath of God type stories from the Bible.
Now the lady speaks louder, "So you're Christian now?" Now I feel like my thought sphere has been invaded.
The lady starts to sing (mockingly) "This little light of mine! This little light of mine! I'm going to let it shine! Shine!..."
She then said something about not being able to hide the light.
If it weren't for me determined to get to my college classes I would have gotten off the bus. I eventually work up the courage to glance at the lady. She's staring off into space, with a vacant look in her eyes.
I don't know if this lady read my thoughts or was possessed or influenced by something that did, or if it was just a coincidence. Either way I felt frightened by the event.
