On the 7th Month

So, in the midst of everyone writing about the sightings of the spirits, here's my share of story. Scared my pee out alright. I swear I never wanted to go out again.

It was just a few nights ago when J texted me asking whether I wanted supper. I was reluctant, but considering we I haven't meet up with him for more than a couple of months by now, I said yes. Just that, when night falls, and place was yet to be determined, I started to wonder where we were going to meet. It was only half past 8 that I received another message from him as to confirm the location. And I left to go get my car immediately as I was going to pick up another friend...

It was barely 9pm but the entire hostel was already so quiet. Most of the students were either locked up in their rooms or they're back home at their hometown. I walked along the empty corridor towards the carpark where I parked mine. It was located pretty far from where I stay since there's no available space inside the hostel compound, resulting in me needing to park my car in front of the faculty instead.

With all those construction sites and what not, even the lights that used to light up the carpark was gone. I barely made out which one was mine until my pupils got used to the dark. I quickly got into the car, and locked all the doors. Turned on the engine and left the place immediately... Even the roads were empty. Not to forget it was pitch black on the road!

4 hours of gossips later, we finally bade goodbyes. By the time I was back in the hostel, it was already 2a.m.. If 9pm was quiet and empty, rest assured what we could expect at 2 in the morning. I locked my car, and left for my room as soon as possibly. I walked swiftly. The lights in the corridor were still on. But both sides where the block of rooms are, were pitch black. I remembered it was chilly. But there was no winds.

The dining hall was all lightened up. But it was empty as usual. Any form of activities there at that Godly hours would be surprising. Very surprising indeed. It wasn't before I was near the hall whereby I need to make a turn towards my block when I noticed movements in the dining hall. Something moved. In fact, a few of them. They were crowding around one of the tables.

I increased my pace. Once I hit the junction, I ran as fast as I could. I didn't turn back to see what it was. Or they so it seemed. Once I reached my room, I quickly lock myself up, and said a prayer.

Now, considering my car is parked somewhere quite far from my room, I don't think I would ever want to drive out for supper anymore. Definitely not when I'm going out alone. What's more, in the 7th month of the Lunar calendar. And I don't think I'll ever want to drive out for supper alone anymore. Unless whoever wants to go out with me come and pick me up.

Call me a coward or whatever, I'm still a God-fearing guy. And that means I believe in ghosts and ghouls as well.

And we had our supper at Steven's Corner in OUG where this residential organisation whatsoever had covered up the entire street in front of the shops for the the people to pay their respect for the deceased. Speaking about harmony, customers of Steven's Corner for this lunar month must've been sharing their meals with those from different frequency as well.

Hmm... hungry ghosts? HA HA HA HA HA HA... hungry humans more likely.

J for Jerry... !!

While you were walking back, do you have the feeling like someone or something is following you behind?? Since this month is the Ghost month, don't go out alone late night and get home by 11pm..

May be can refrain from clubbings and sorts...

Best solution go Anton's house to sleepover... At least you got company... :D
