The Child by the Bathroom Door
Our helpers have been telling us that they sense “something” in our house. One of them said she saw a woman walking past her when no one should have been around. Upon hearing these stories, I shrugged them off and blamed an overactive imagination or too much coffee. After all, neither my husband nor I have ever experienced anything paranormal in our house. Although I do believe in such things, I just don’t think we have these elements in our house. I don’t believe a figure will appear out of nowhere in the middle of the night.
Until I heard my brother’s story.
My brother’s wife left last September to pursue her master’s degree in chemistry in Spain, leaving my brother TJ and their two-year-old daughter Yoona living with us. The room we provided for Yoona and TJ has its own toilet and bath.
Once, at around 2 a.m., my brother went to the bathroom to pee. He left the bathroom door ajar and did not bother to turn the lights on because he was already familiar with the bathroom, and he knew he won’t stay there for long. As he was about to be finished, the bathroom door started creaking. My brother looked at the door and saw the crack widen, and then become narrow– bubukas-sasara raw! At first he thought it was just the wind, but then he realized that not even a breeze was blowing! And then he saw it–by the door was the silhouette of a child! The child was slowly inching toward him. Before TJ mustered a scream, the child touched him!!! And he realized he knew the child.
Nyek, si Yoona lang daw pala! Nagising at hinanap siya, kaya sumunod sa banyo. Hindi man lang tumawag, nanakot pa! Hukhukhukhuk!
The “Aswang” by the Window
Similar to this story was something my husband told me which made me laugh for a looooong time. When Randy and I weren’t married yet, he used to live with two houseboys who were brothers, Luke and Adong. While Randy’s room was on the third floor, Luke and Adong’s was on the first floor.
One stormy night, nag-brownout. Randy got up from bed because he got worried about his dogs. He wanted the dogs in the house because it was very cold, so he looked for them. Sometimes, the dogs stayed in the brothers’ room so he also went down. From the outside, he saw Adong was still up, sitting in a corner near the closed french windows and texting. Randy wanted to ask Adong where the dogs were and approached the window. Adong, seeing Randy’s silhouette from the glass window outside, sabay kidlat, jumped up to his sleeping older brother Luke and shouted, “Aswang! Aswang! Kuya Luke may aswang!!!”
Randy told me the that two grown brothers–na pa-macho ang peg–were huddled on the bed, shaking and hugging each other fiercely, almost crying, while he was knocking and asking them where the dogs were! I could just imagine the two of them looking like that. Hukhukhukhukhuk!
While I do believe in the supernatural (they’re in the Bible–remember Jesus casting away evil spirits?), I believe more in THE SUPER–my superb God. Our God is so powerful that the mere mention of His Son Jesus sends the demons fleeing. 😉
Tell me what you think!
