Haunting Experience - The Man in the Hat
by Andrew Tayag
I was ten when I say my first ghost . . .
I was in the Philippines. There was a brown out, or as people there call it, a brown out. I wanted all the attention so I went inside my pitch black house, to get the candles. When I entered my kitchen, I saw a towering figure.
Since it was dark I couldn't really see, but I made out the lines of his body. He was tall, with a large overcoat, and his right hand was raised in the air. I didn't see what was in the hand, but I assumed it was a knife.
So I ran out, screaming at the top of my lungs. When my dad came in with a bat, I don't know where he got it, the man was gone.
