I have been watching Supernatural Season 1 for the past two weekends. The show isn’t that scary, but I still choose not to watch them at night. On Sunday, there’s still one episode left for Season 1 only, so I decided to finish it that night, so I watched till way past midnight. It was then, a pen on my table decided to drop. I didn’t even move a muscle. The pen just dropped. It caused me to startle but then, I tried not to think so much about it.
The next day, I went to office – since it was a World Cup final day, I thought most of my colleagues were absent because of late night sleep. Then I found out, about 4-5 of them had taken compassionate leave because of passing of their family members during the weekend. It was really shocking. I think since early this year, there were too many deaths in our company. Even today, as I was writing this, one of our associates also died because of sudden sickness.
Is 2010 a very bad year? There seems to be a lot of deaths! If you read the newspapers, I think there are far more accidents this year compared to yesteryears.
Whether you want to believe it or not, I think there must be something going on these days! A colleague related her story to me.
Earlier this year before Chinese New Year, her husband went to Singapore to work. So, she was left with her two children and maid at home. She bought a loaf of bread for the family. Normally, only the husband and the son would be the ones eating bread whereas she, her daughter and maid would not eat bread as they don’t fancy eating bread.
The next day, half of the loaf of bread was gone. She remembered the son only took two slices the day before. So, she asked the maid if she took the bread. The maid said she didn’t and went about doing her work. My friend just let it be.
A few weeks ago, at about 7 pm, she went to collect her children from her mother in law’s house, but found that her parking spot was taken by a neighbour. So she parked on a small plot of land in front of the mother in law’s house. As she was letting the children into the car and the maid helping out with the bags into the car boot, the maid screamed. Suddenly the car which was parked at her usual spot started to move backwards by itself. The maid’s face turned pale. They watched as the car moved slowly backwards till it hit a road pavement and it stopped.
Then, the neighbor came out looking for his car and they pointed the reversed car to him. My friend jokingly told him – “You must have forgotten to pull the brakes!”
The neighbor looked confused and went inside his car. He started his car and then wound down his window and told her – “I did pull the brakes! And it’s working fine!”
My friend didn’t think too much about it and she drove home. After she tucked in her kids in bed, her maid spoke to her.
“Just now when the car was moving, I saw a black shadow inside the car! I didn’t tell you earlier because I didn’t want to scare the children!”
“Aiyah.. maybe your eye sight is failing you!”
“But ma’am, I am sure I saw a shadow!”
“Why do you have to tell me this in the middle of the night!”
“Ma’am, you remember a few months ago, you asked me if I had eaten half loaf of the bread, and I swear I didn’t!”
“That morning, as I was sweeping the floor, I saw a black shadow in the kitchen. It was looking at me! I told it not to bother me and if it wishes to eat, please go ahead and eat things in the kitchen! And it ate half of your bread!”
My friend was stunned and she cursed. She said she could accept it if the maid saw the black shadow in the neighbour’s car! But now, the black shadow was in her house and it took the maid more than 6 months to relate the story to her!
I guess I won’t be watching Supernatural Season 2 this weekend. Geez.. all these stories are giving me the creeps!
