The Voice

Author: Gauri

My uncle and his friends had been to Chennai last year. This story is from Chennai. One of his friends has a farmhouse there, it is far from the city and in a remote area where there are only about 4-5 houses and they went to spend their holidays there. Quite a few people have supernatural experiences around the area. My uncle and his friends too experienced something like that. He told me that they had planned the trip and booked the train tickets and everything was set and they were ready. Their train was to depart at 5am and they were to reach there past midnight. At their arrival in Chennai they couldn’t find any transport at all at such an odd hour so they had to walk all the way to the farmhouse. They were going after quite a long time so they bit confused about the way there but they remembered that they had to cross a bridge and pass from a big wide well to get there. As they were walking they noticed it was very dark and they could see their steps ahead and the road ahead. With the help of a small torch they somehow were walking. It was the four of them. My uncle, after about an hour later walking, he felt as if someone was following them he heard footsteps at a distance behind them but it was hard to see even after flashing the torch but he was constantly hearing footsteps and the strange thing was it was only him who was hearing the footsteps no one else, his friends thought he’d be joking but it stopped after a while. Two hours of walking and they reached by the Big well they took a halt and sat for sometime as they knew it would take another hour to reach. After they sat down, all of sudden, they could hear someone calling out a name, it was a lady’s voice she was repeatedly calling out someone’s name, she was saying ” Jay! Jay! Where are you? Jay! Jay!” And slowly her tone of voice changing from soft to harsh it was almost like she was screaming. Uncle and his friends got up quickly and flashed their torches around but they couldn’t see anyone far and wide. There were no houses nearby and no people around. They were wondering who would be up at this time it was almost 2.15am. As the lady’s voice was going on to being a little aggressive, they got a little scared and they started walking again and the lady’s voice was slowly fading away. After walking for about half hour, they a shock!! They saw the same Big well in front of them….now this was something extraordinary! How could this be! At this point they all were terrified, they couldn’t think what to do and no wonder they heard the lady’s voice again soft at first as she was calling ” Jay! Jay!” They were all extremely scared and they decided to walk quickly. They were almost running. After walking quickly and running half the way they finally reached home. This was something my uncle could never forget. After inquiring about the incidence they found out that there was lady who used to live near the well. Someone had pushed her in it and to save her life she was calling for her son who never came to save her and she drowned. Many people have heard her.
