The Old Woman in the Abandoned House
This is a story that happened with me during my childhood. I guess I was studying in 7th class. I was a very mischievous kid and was used to skip my evening tuition so that I could play cricket with my friends.
On on such evening, one of my friends hit the ball a bit too hard. It flew up and landed inside the premises of a nearby old house. Now as per our rulebook, it was my turn to fetch the ball. Although I was hesitant to do it, my friends forced me to. Reluctantly, I entered the premises through one of the broken walls. I saw an old lady sitting in the corner, holding the ball in her hand. I looked at her curiously – she was very calm and her eyes had gone deep inside.
Almost stuttering, I asked her to give me the ball back. Without a reaction – she handed me the ball. I took the ball, and turned back. Going a bit ahead, I looked back and saw that the lady was staring at me. I joined my friends and told them about the old woman. They laughed at me and said that the house had been abandoned for years and that nobody ever goes in there. But I repeated what I saw and finally, all of us went inside the house to investigate.
To my surprise, there was nobody in there. It freaked me out. I was unwell for the next few days.
This was my first ever encounter with the supposed supernatural. Let me know your thoughts!
