This happened to me when I was about 12 years old. My parents had gone to my uncle’s house and they left me alone in the house. I was getting very bored, and it was getting dark, so I decided to take a nap, as I was exhausted.
As soon as I got in bed, I heard a strange sound. It was coming from my backyard . Initially, I was too tired to check what was wrong. I didn’t really believe in ghosts , but this incident completely changed me .
“Timmy, is that you ?” I called out to my dog. He was nowhere to be seen. He usually likes to trouble me , so I didn’t pay a lot of attention to him.
The sounds kept getting louder and louder. It was almost like, a young child was crying in pain .
I became curious, but suddenly all the noises stopped. There was pin- drop silence. I was scared stiff, but decided to go to my room. As soon as I closed my eyes, I dozed off. Then suddenly , the voiced started again . I thought I was getting mad, as I was diagnosed with Schizophrenia a few months ago , But this seemed so vivid.
I could see my golden Labrador clearly under the moonlight, he was resting . I slept again. In the middle of the night, I got very thirsty and decided to go to the kitchen to drink water. I heard the yelping sound again. This time I decided to see what was going on, as it was continuously disturbing my sleep. I ran to my backyard and I was shocked , completely stunned to find out that the crying noises were coming from a small baby.
“ How the hell did this baby get here ? ” I thought in my head . The baby was covered in blood. I was so shocked that I nearly was about to scream, but somehow controlled myself .
As soon as I began to touch the baby, someone pulled it away. I stared in disbelief and horror. A strange looking old woman , with blood – stained clothes , crooked legs , weird grin with blood dripping from her mouth said “ Where’s my son”?
I ran as fast as I could.. this might seem overly dramatic , but I swear to God , it was absolutely real . I could hear the old woman catching up to me ,breathing heavily and repeating the same words again and again. “ WHERE IS MY SON ”!?
As soon as my dog saw me running, he barked so aggressively , that my neighbours woke up, and , seeing my frightened face asked me what was going on. I haven’t told anyone about this, not even my parents because I knew no one was going to believe me, but this accident really left me stunned.
