Have you ever had experiences like this?
Okay so I was telling Alafiya some ghost stories the other night and she was so spooked by the stories I told her I thought I’d share this because, hey when are ghost stories not entertaining? I’ve known this story ever since I was a kid. It wasn’t specifically meant for me, since it’s not a bedtime story, lol. I learned about this because my dad loved evening chats whilst playing cards with his siblings, and I liked to eavesdrop. This one account like. Is still vivid in my adult mind, because?? What the fuck happened??
My dad is a very fun-loving guy. I know I already mentioned this, but dad is obsessed with the paranormal. But he’s also a big scaredy-cat. He lived in a small island in the northeast Philippines. You know the Philippines, we were a colony, and the country has plantations scattered everywhere, known locally as Haciendas.
Well. Dad grew up a lower-middle class kid with his other 12 siblings (yes, THAT many, haha.)
So, in order to earn some extra cash, dad offered to clean up some haciendas that were uninhabited. Rich folk lived in the city, in Manila, and not in some big old plantation on some lonely island. I think dad was with his brother, and they were joking around, when suddenly?? They heard really, heavy footsteps?? Like giant feet bound with cuffs and chains??
And mind you, they were in a hacienda, which means the floor wasn’t creaky or anything. They were polished granite tiles. At first, dad thought it was his imagination and they went on cleaning and waxing the floors, when they heard it again, but this time closer. This time, you best believe dad and my uncle ran like the devil himself was on their heels, and dad?? He looked back because of god knows what, and he saw behind him a very crooked figure of something that looked like a hobbled old lady, despite the bent back, she was still unnaturally.. large? And she had a face like a leper’s, or something. It’s just so? Weird?? I still ask dad about it but he won’t elaborate for me. I don’t know what dad did after that, or if they ever went back to the plantation. Or if the owners ever offered an explanation. Who knows.
