I would like to share the story I experienced just 2 nights ago. But before that let me tell you the background story so you guys are in the same page with me. And I apologize if it’s too long.
I live in the capital city of Indonesia. Now here in Indonesia, we have A LOT of our own ghost types and stories, some similar to the ones in Malaysia and the Philippines.
One of the ghost story is about a ghost called Kuntilanak (or Pontianak or Kunti or Ponti in Malay). Some people, especially the Javanese people, believe that one can call her by singing some old javanese song and her presence is signed by the sound of chick or a lady’s giggle.They say if the sound is faint, she is close. But if the sound is loud, she is far.
Now I don’t know the words of that old javanese song, neither can I sing it. But I heard it once, and it is indeed, a very, very eerie song.
So 2 nights ago, around 3am I woke up because I felt the heat got me. I opened my eyes and realized that the electricity had been down, that’s why my air conditioner was not working. I got up from my bed and out of my room, and I realized that I was alone. I live in a dorm, on the second floor, and at that time no one was there except me. Not thinking of anything, I went down to the first floor where the electricity box is to try to turn on the switch. Something happened, and the electricity wouldn’t turned on, even after I turned the switch on. I gave up after several tries, and climb back to my room.
While I laid there in my bed, feeling uncomfortable because of the heat, I heard something. The sound was very faint, I didn’t realize it at the first time. But the more I try to focus to that song, the more I got scared. It was the Kuntilanak song. At first it was very faint, but then it went louder, and then it went faint again. Just as someone sang it from the distance, come closer, and went away.
Not long after that, around 1 or 2 minutes after I heard the song, I heard something from outside my window. It was the chirp of a chick. It was a very faint sound. Mind you, there is no pet chicken in my dorm neither the surrounding area.
I pull my cover up to my head and not moving even though I was perspiring inside the cover because of the heat and i couldn’t sleep until the sun comes up and suddenly the electricity miraculously working again.
Fuck Yeah Nightmares Mod Fey: I’m really glad the power came back on! I did some googling and found a page about the song, “lingsir wengi”. Not one I’d be singing anytime soon! 9/10 for scares and thanks for sharing!
