Thus is not a scary or spooky story, but I thought maybe I can share this here to let you all think what this could be.
It was a rainy afternoon, I was riding from the city part of Sapporo to the countryside part of Tomakomai back to my old antique house.
I lost Aleshanee, my cat last month and I wanted to give him a place to rest and so I have bought him a "doubutsu haka" which means tomb stone (?) for animals. The Japanese customs will bring the ashes home kept in a pretty vase and will place it behind the tomb stone (?) made of good woods on a showcase like dan. So I did the same thing for Aleshanee.
Since it was raining hard, I went to check my chicken coop if there is any leaking. Glad I saw no leaking at all.
I went to the room where the dan of Aleshanee is placed. I was laying back on my couch staring at a fur toy which belonged to my furry child. I fell asleep for awhile and was waken up by a loud bang.
I thought it was thundering outside but the rain has stopped and it was a peaceful evening. I went to check the chicken coop but everything seemed OK.
A cloud of dust begun to form outside the chicken coop when I turned around and headed outside. I froze for awhile and begun praying. The "dust" went away with the wind and I quickly ran in my house like if I have forgotten to wear my pants. I texted my friend whom was known as a family member of the Ainu Priest (I know I keep having shermanian friends for some reason) and told him what had happened. He promised to come over the next morning.
I thought I have missed to tell you guys that this Ainu priest friend had helped me to solve the " creepy closet" case, he gave me some "holy salt" for protection and had contacted the owner of the closet for me and told the owners to have the closet back. Yes, case closed for that. Now the cloud.
"Hey, Koji-san, here I saw the cloud here" I called my friend and pointed at the point where I saw the cloud forming.
He took his phone out and start searching the landscape and linked it to an app where they can check what the land usually was during the past. (Yes, technology now a days...)
He told me that the area where my house is located used to be a place where the Ainu people used to dissect their preys. Oh, in case you are wondering what Ainu is it is the Native people of Hokkaido, Japan. Many places in Hokkaido is named in the Ainu language.
Yes, so a place where people will cut up animals and kill then completely... I asked my friend what I can do to keep the strange things away. He said that it will be just as it is since for that many years this house was here and the spirits will just need to get used to the situation.
So... Old spirits will just need to get use to where we are otherwise they will need to move on... Hmm...
Do you think that there will be more strange stuff coming up or will it be less since the spirits too will need to move on?
