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.

I’m so shocked, guys, I’m terrified and scared and outraged, I feel cold in my stomach, feel heavy in my lungs.I want to tell you that i’m with you and i’m so sorry.

I live in the country where no one except for trumps was in power for a long long time, hell, our whole State Duma is a bunch of trumps, and I live in this hell, where women are less educated, underpaid, are expected to do all the household chores and be happy abt it as it’s our LIFE PURPOSE, and NOT TO WANT BABY in our society for women is something alike madness and is severely frowned upon. We are judged all the time, we are lesser people, we are drowning in this toxic rape culture, the domestic violence statistic is heartbreaking, LGBT rights are not even an issue (yall know abt anti-LGBT russian laws), anti-abortion law is upon us, we have 456(!!) professions women are lot allowed to do BY LAW, bec they can AFFECT OUR ABILITY TO GIVE BIRTH(??!!!). Sexism, homophobia and racism are in bloom, and all this is served as traditional values and ways of the true Christian. 

I’m sick of this to my guts, and I wish none of this for you. But I know that our situations are different. Your society is so much stronger and united and awake. I know that it looks bad and will be very hard, but you have each other and you’ll stand up for yourselves and the ones you love and you’ll make them listen to you and you’ll fight back. I believe in you so much, and my friends do believe in you too. Fight for your rights, for your freedom. You all gave me so much hope, so much happiness, so much faith in a better world and better society, but it wasn’t your politics only, it was you all, people. Brave people who want to do this world a better and safer place for everyone. My heart is with you in these awful times.

He had expected anguish and anger when he told her of her brother’s death, but Sansa’s face had remained so still that for a moment he feared she had not understood. It was only later, with a heavy oaken door between them, that he heard her sobbing. Tyrion had considered going to her then, to offer what comfort he could. No, he had to remind himself, she will not look for solace from a Lannister. The most he could do was to shield her from the uglier details of the Red Wedding as they came down from the Twins. Sansa did not need to hear how her brother’s body had been hacked and mutilated, he decided; nor how her mother’s corpse had been dumped naked into the Green Fork in a savage mockery of House Tully’s funeral customs. The last thing the girl needed was more fodder for her nightmares.

It was not enough, though.
