Grandfather is Watching…

juvenile orion icon - tsukasa amouI-if this isn't a scary encounter, I don't know what is.

It’s common knowledge to my family that the warehouse in our complex is “haunted”. My mother claims it’s the spirit of her late father, because he died before everything could be settled properly.

I’ve never seen this “ghost” so I never believed these stories. My dad always asks me to accompany him when he needs to check something in the warehouse at night. And he always, always tells me not to wander too far away from him.

Well, because I need to take care of my parents in the morning until evening, I only have time for myself after dinner. Usually, from 8 pm – 1 am, I would either be working on Mist, updating Cosplay Holic, or just recently, walking and/or jogging inside the warehouse. It’s the largest open space I have for my bi-weekly exercise, so at 8:30 pm last Friday, I went for a walk.

Some time around 9:00 pm, I heard footsteps. His pace was much slower than mine, in a sort of hushed steps. I was confused because I had my mp3 on, so how could I be hearing a second pair of footsteps behind me?

I decided to stop walking… I could still hear the steps.
Then I took off my headset… the footsteps were a little louder.
The footsteps stopped. I turned around-

No one was there.

Then I told myself: “C-chill, Rei! It’s probably someone… maybe dad or your nephew’s playing a trick on you! Yes, that’s it! J-just have a look around… you’ll find someone hiding… somewhere!”

But I checked everywhere, including the locks on all the doors.
No one was there, and everything was locked up tight.

Needless to say, I finished the last 1000 steps faster than usual and went home. This is the first time I “heard” something without seeing it. It’s usually the other way around! You could say I’m kind of glad I sprained my ankle yesterday (another story for another time), but I really would like to get to the bottom of this… encounter.

…huh. I guess I’ll be taking that walk tomorrow evening after all.
