It's been such a long time since my last story!
I really missed being on this site (I still do come here from time to time to read the submissions).
As our family is quite sensitive to the supernatural, the topic about supernatural stuff usually come up during dinner time. (Maybe at least when it's me and my dad talking... My mum and sisters are kind of not comfortable talking about it)
Last night, my dad was talking about his recent weird encounter that he believed is supernatural in nature.
He was at a hawker centre drinking coffee and he saw something that he can't really explain properly. He said "It's like a group of something was moving up the slope... I cannot really see what it is but you know, if something went past the railings (it's a shiny silver coated railing) , you will be able to see the reflection of it moving pass? I see the reflections, but I can't explain what it was but its a group of somethings not only 1."
He was baffled and confused so he looked up to see if its the reflection of something moving above the trees or maybe its a shadow of a passing cloud but nothing.
There is no wind that can cause the leaves of the tree to sway or move that will cause that reflection and the sky was clear. And also, nobody walked pass him or near by the railings that caused the weird reflection.
So he believed that its something supernatural.
The next story he told me was that when he was younger, he was working in some kind of warehouse building.
One day, he was on the way to the toilet when he saw a very very weird looking figure manifesting In front of him.
He explained that "It's like 3 stacks of wooden planks moving forward like a robot, it kept stacking up and moving forward, and it's quite fast. I can't see it clearly as it kind of like fading in and out of the background... It's very odd."
After hearing this I was both amazed and intrigued at the thought of how supernatural stuff doesn't have to be of figures that we are familiar with.
I shared with him my theory, that perhaps it's something from another dimension and somehow our plane of existence and it's plane of existence aligned and kind of like for a brief moment it merged and my dad managed to catch a glimpse of it.
There is more stuff my dad saw when he was much younger (in his kampung (village) days, where there are barely any light at night.)
But I would need to ask more about it first before sharing.
Oh! And 1 question, if you guys were to see something odd and supernatural, and you are with a friend or there are people around you but they did not notice, will you tell them about it?
My dad told me that he did not tell his friends when he encounters them because he did not want to frighten them, but I had the complete opposite idea.
I told him I will loudly exclaim and ask them to look so that at least I know I am not imagining it and it proves that it's real.
And that if I did remember, I will even take out my phone to record the evidence.
My dad gave me the most judgmental look and said "What if your friend or the people were so frightened that they fainted?"
I admit that did not come to my mind... Oops.
But... I don't know... What would you do?
