This morning, I woke up at 6.20 am to go to the loo when I heard a commotion, likely outside the house. I stood still to listen. It sounded like a man scuffling and screaming but it was not very loud, yet disturbing. At first, I thought it was my sister’s annoying alarm clock which rings like someone is slaughtering a chicken.
Then there was no more noise. So, I thought it was my imagination. I went about my business and went back to bed. Then, I heard again, someone talking in desperate voices. I ran to the master bedroom and looked outside my porch. It was still pitch dark, with dim lights from the street. I looked to left and right , there was no movement. So, I ran to the back balcony and looked outside, there was nobody. Yet, again, I heard a man’s faint voice, saying, "Tolong! Tolong!" But, I simply couldn’t pinpoint where the voice came from.
At that time, both my mom and sister had woken up too. So I told them to listen if they could hear anything but they couldn’t.
I hope it’s merely my imagination.
