I was in college back then when this happened. It was already 10 pm when we were finally done copying our Principles of TV final project in a cd to be submitted the next day. We were in the 5th flr of Cannisius Building in Ateneo de Davao University. As far as I know, this was one of the oldest buildings in the campus.
When we finally bid the rest of the guys goodbye, we went out Mass Com Lab and shut the door behind us, only to be greeted by a virtually dark and eerie scenery of our campus at night. The air was unusually cold though we didn't pay attention. It must be (well, it has to be) the wind since the trees are swaying anyway.
Conrad, the oldest, led the group towards the corridors. We walked hand in hand, pacing slowly as to avoid stumbling upon something since it was virtually dark, save for the street lamps outside the school. We were almost near the flight of stairs leading to the ground floor when I looked up to the adjacent building (The Finster building). There by the rails, stood 3 tall, dark and shadowy figures. One was leaning by the rail, the other one beside him and the 3rd one, creeping behind the first guy. The funny thing is, they didn't have any face.
Always the oblivious one, I pointed at them and said "Our school is being robbed! Look!" All looked up to the direction I was pointing. Conrad immediately grabbed my hand and we all ran downstairs in a state of panic. Though I felt the hair at the back of my neck stood up, I still managed to look up and look at the 3 creepy figures who I knew were looking at us as we descended the stairs. Whatever they were, I still can't figure out who or what they were and what they were doing in the 5th floor at 10 pm.
It was a good thing that the 3rd floor was lit up and there were guards roving around so we were escorted to the elevator. I knew nobody wanted to talk about what we saw back then but I just had to ask what those guys were doing there at this time of the night.
"Dre, if they're robbing the school, they should have just broken into the cashier..." "What are they then?" "Alam mo na kung ano yun... Huwag ka nang magtanong (You already know what they are... Don't ask me...) "
Now, surely... Stories like this no longer surprise our former schoolmates. Being one of the oldest campuses in Davao, AdDU (both the claveria and the matina campuses) are teeming with ghost stories from haunted bathrooms down to ghost portals in one of the building. My cousin, a few of his classmates and a college professor has already fallen victim to the ghost portal. It was rumored to be in the 5th floor men's comfort room in the Del Rosario building. Anyone who comes in there past 6 pm or when it's really dark already sometimes finds himself teleported to the other building...
