I have never really had any experience with the paranormal or spirits, until this episode. I as a person am very easy to scare when it come to things like this.
So here is what happened one October night. It was around 3 in the morning when my dog 'Bruno' wanted to be let out. He usually never does that but he was just jumping around and whining that he wanted to be let outside. Not being brave enough to go out in the night at that time, I woke my sister and we both took him outside for him to finish his business.
Where we stay, my house is on a side lane across the main road. At the end of my lane is an open field which is unused. Bruno usually runs to the open field, and as soon as we opened the gate he did the same. I cursed myself for not putting him on a leash. Now I had to run behind him to the end of my lane to the open field too. I asked my sister to stay near the gate as we had not locked the house door. I went behind Bruno. He was taking his time and sniffing around the place and I was freaking out. I just kept looking back at my sister to see that she was still there. After about 5 minutes or so I saw someone walking on the main road, I took a second look at the person and realized it was a woman. I just wanted to get back home. I did not have the guts to scream my dog's name. I just kept calling to him softly and he was absolutely not bothered.
Just then the lady who was walking straight took a left turn and started walking straight to my lane. My heart was in my mouth by now and I just ran. I was so scared and I wanted Bruno to just come back but he was not going to do that. I ran back to my sister and told her that there is someone on the road and she is walking to our lane. She was as freaked as me. We just stood inside our gate which is very high, and watched.
This lady was in some kind of a white dress and had very crumpled hair (not long, kind of short). She was not looking at anything in particular. She just kept walking straight and did not even look in our direction even when my dog ran past her and came inside the gate. It was very weird because we don't know if we saw a ghost.
When my dog came inside the gate I locked it and looked outside to see where the lady was, I could not see her. She was gone. I was too freaked out to ponder and analyze. So we just went inside and I gave a piece of my mind to Bruno for running away and not listening. But it only amused him and had no effect at all.
Its as same as less literate people take up superstitions in generations to come. That's how superstitions generate - inconclusive information and gossip / rumour gaining more traction than the original event's true description.
Anyways, good stories - stay under calm de-stressful mentality and you will get a habit not to be panicky... And special note to bruno - keep calm and learn to do your business at workable hours please.
