As an extension to the earlier post, here is another eerie story. And this incident is quite recent.
My 26 year-old niece (my sister-in-law's youngest daughter) is pursuing further studies in Kuala Lumpur. One weekend, about a few weeks ago, she returns to her hometown in Mersing to visit her parents.
She sleeps on the double bed in the spare bedroom. In the middle of the night, she wakes up to go to the bathroom. In the dim light, she sees her mother sleeping on the bed next to her. Her mother must have laid on the bed after she had fallen asleep.
She softly calls to her mother, "Mak...?".
Without turning, the mother replies, "Hmmm..."
My niece gets up and goes to the bathroom. On the way back, she sees the light of the television still on in the living room. She walks to the living room to switch off the TV. To her surprise, she sees her mother asleep on the sofa.
If her mother is sleeping on the sofa in the living room, then who is sleeping with her in the bedroom?
Daughter wakes up mother and tells her of what she has seen. Both mother and daughter quietly walks to the bedroom and switch on the lights. The room is empty. Whoever or whatever that was sleeping on the bed is no longer there.
Mother takes her holy Al-Quran and recites some verses. Outside, the sound of barking dogs fill the night air...
This is not the first time my niece has seen things that other ordinary people could not see. So far, alhamdulillah, there has been no physical harm on the family.
I sometimes wonder why is it that some people have the ability to see things that are normally unseen. Or do these other beings make themselves visible only to certain persons.
If you do know why, then you need not tell me.... because I actually don't really want to know. I'm happy to leave it as a mystery.
