This happened three years ago when I was on holiday in Jakarta and I was staying at my aunt’s mansion. She is a very wealthy woman and she lives in a huge mansion which is situated in a place that is unusually dark and rather eerie. I don’t understand why she chose that God forsaken place to build her home, right next to a deep ravine if I am not mistaken.. Craaaaaaaaaaaazei!! I still wonder to this day whether it was just my imagination or whether I had been punk’d by a lost soul.
I usually sleep in my aunt’s room on the second floor since she was always alone. The first floor is always dark and it always gives me the creeps. The second floor is dimly lit. To be honest, the lighting is like the mansion in Resident Evil. It looks like a haunted house. Her servants stayed on the first floor but their rooms are outside the house as I recalled.
Anyway, it was around 10 p.m when I went back to bed. I was supposed to sleep in my aunt’s room that night but for some weird reason, I opted to sleep in her son’s room. The room hadn’t been occupied for a while since her son got married. Actually, ALL of the rooms in that mansion was never occupied ever since her sons left. But being someone who is not at all superstitious, I slept with ease. So what happen to little Ren that night?
I have a habit of waking up to pee in the middle of the night. Usually, I will wake up around 3 a.m or 4 a.m in the morning. It is a habit that stayed with me till this very day. That night was no exception. So I woke up, peed and went back to sleep.
5 minutes in bed and I was not completely asleep. It takes time for me to actually “passed out” again once I woke up. So, I suddenly heard a woman’s voice humming an old Javanese ancient song. This will not really creep me out if:
- it does not echo loudly in my room
- she has a shitty voice (unless if it sounds very demonic).
- she hums a song by Britney Spears, Madonna or a shitty K-pop band. What kind of ghosts/spirits will hum pop songs anyway?!
Her voice sounded heavenly – definitely not something that I can easily describe with words. I never heard a human voice that sounds as nice as this one. She had a very soft voice but it had a very piercing edge to it. It echoed effortlessly in that room. She continues humming the ancient song while my eyeballs were bulging and it was ready to pop out from my eye socket.
You know what happens when you are really terrified? I tell you. Your whole body just shuts down. I was completely paralyzed that I just laid down, not being able to get up. I can’t remember how long I was pinned down on the bed until I finally got up and ran to my aunt’s room. I swear I could hear a small, “polite” laughter when I was running.
I can’t seem to fall asleep after that so I stayed up watching the telly. My attention was still on that heavenly voice though. I kept on asking myself whether it was a dream, whether it was my imagination or whether it was real. Was she singing a k-pop song that I am not familiar with? Was she? Who is she? Just a voice in my head? Most importantly, who was laughing when I was running? Bitch really knows how to pull a prank.
