This story was actually told by our priest in the church where I go. When our priest went to Dubai for a visit to a friend who is also a priest he told this story to him which he read in a newspaper there in Dubai. I don't have the exact date or location of this story but I still think it's nice to share it with you guys because this story touches me so much.
Well here it goes... In one place in Dubai there lived one family composed of a father, mother, 8yrs old son and a newly born daughter (a week old I guess). This family lived very poorly; the father didn't have a good job and sometimes the family didn't have anything to eat.
One night when the father reached home he saw his family waiting for him at the table expecting that he brought food for dinner. The father hadn't found any food for his family that day so the family decided to sleep instead hoping to forget their hunger.
While the family were sleeping the father wakes up, gets a knife and stabs his sleeping wife to death for no reason. Because of what happened, the 8year old son who was sleeping in the same room awakes and sees what his father had done to his mother.
The boy starts crying which makes the younger child wake up and start crying too... This makes the father crazier; he gets his two children, brings them to the nearby abandoned house and locks them in the underground basement with the body of their dead mother and he leaves them there. This basement had no way out but the door they entered from; no water, and no food available.
After almost a month, the relatives of the family were looking for them (they went to their house and saw no one was home). Thinking that the whole family went away they decided to go back to their own home until one of them noticed a blood stain in the blanket... And then they noticed that the clothing and things were still there.
Their heart pumped so hard, they were so scared that something bad had happened to the family. They told the police hoping that it might solve the case but there was no clue on what might have happened until one day one of the family members saw the father in a market place somewhere in Dubai and asked him what happened but the father couldn't tell anything-he just cried. So they decided to bring the father to the police and let the police ask him what happened to his family.
In the police station, after so many questions the police found out that the father killed his own wife and buried his children alive-the motive? Well nothing! The police said that because of lack of food, so many problems and stress the father's mind gave up and he went into mild craziness or mental disturbance. That's why he managed to kill and hurt his own family.
After some medication and the father now thinking clearly, he and the police rushed to the place where he buried his family. They reached the old house and broke the lock of the basement door (it was almost two months after he buried his family there). They were expecting to see three dead bodies but this was not what they saw.
They only saw one dead body- the mother's but she was not in decomposition stage. The body was still soft and it seemed it only died a minute before and the two children...? Well, the 8 year old boy was alive and hadn't lost any weight. He was very fine... The baby was very healthy and grown big. The people who saw them were amazed by what had happened.
They checked the basement to see if they had food and milk and someone with them who took care of the two children. But they found nothing. No food not even water.
So the people wondered how the children survived and looked so healthy except of being pale white because they hadn't seen the sun for many days. So they asked the 8 year old boy." What happened to you inside? How did you survive without food or water for almost two months and look so healthy?"
The answer of the young boy made my hair rise, while I was listening to our priest story. The boy smiled at them and said. "There was a man who came every night. He brought me food and water. He also woke up our mother to breastfeed my baby sister."
The people were shocked with what they heard-how come this man awoke his dead mother to feed her baby? So they asked who the man was and the boy answered "he did not tell me his name but he had a very beautiful and shiny face, curly long hair and holes in both of his palms..."
Well I guess now you know who that man was... I don't think this is scary but it makes my hair rise a little... Thank you for reading.
