“When I was young, my family moved into a bungalow with a big backyard. We moved in during the rainy season so I was quite bummed out that I didn’t get to run around outside. I made do by playing with toys and building pillow forts indoors.”
“After about two weeks, my grandma told me to out her rocking chair at a corner of the living room. Although I’d always been intrigued by it, I never dared to sit on it while she was around.”
“One rainy afternoon, she was napping and my parents weren’t home, so I decided to do it!”
“As I cradled my favourite doll Camelia, I felt something touching my arm. It was a little girl! She had dark hair, a pale complexion, red eyes, and fangs. I was about to cry, scream and run away when she asked, ‘Can I sit down and play with your doll?'”
“Too shocked to answer, I got up and passed Camelia to her. She took my place, slowly humming and caressing the doll’s hair. Shaking with fear, I prayed my grandma would wake up. Tears were streaming down my cheeks; imagine an 11-year-old standing next to a ghost!”
“Suddenly, my heard my grandma’s voice. ‘Maggie, where are you? Come here; don;t play in the dark corners!’ It was as though she sensed I was in trouble! She switched on the lights and I ran to her. When I turned to look at the ricker, ‘it’ was gone but Camelia was still there.”
“I told my grandma what had happened; to my relief, she believed me. She convinced my parents the house was hunted, and we moved out soon after. Needless to say, we left the rocking chair and Camelia behind.”
