This is gotta be one of my most frightening experiences ever! This happened when I went on a vacation in the province before with my Grandmother, I was just 8 years old that time, the year as far as I remember was 1996, our vacation was very short it lasted for only 2 days.
We went to the house of my aunt in Nueva Ecija, their house was built on top of a hill with a breath taking view of the mountains in front of it. I enjoyed the duration of our stay except our last night.
The night was so peaceful that you can only hear the sound of the crickets, I slept with my grandmother in my left side and my aunt on my right, the window was wide open at night for ventilation (they don't have electricity, so there are no electric fans or air-cons), we slept on an elevated room (a room with a somewhat basement under it, which is common in the province.)
I was able to sleep easily that night but I woke up in the middle of the night when I heard the dogs barking, I tried to sleep again but I couldn't, after a few minutes I heard someone talking, it was my grandmother saying “Daniel, wake up! It's already 5AM! We are going to be late! Pack your things now! - “Oh is it morning already? - I said in the back of my mind - but I remembered I slept with my grandmother and she was still beside me, I touched her to confirm if she was still sleeping and she was!!! I got scared and wondered who could that be? It's exactly the speaking voice of my grandmother, the way she talks, her diction, it's exactly her! After a few seconds my aunt started talking too “Hey Daniel! Get your ass up! Breakfast is ready; your coffee is going to get cold! Wake up now! but my aunt was also still sleeping beside me! I got so scared especially when I noticed that the sound of the voice is coming from the basement of the room where we are sleeping in (My aunt's house is made up of bamboo and other wood materials, the floor we are sleeping in is made up of bamboo so you can easily see what's below the basement thru the holes).
I pinched myself to check if maybe I was just dreaming, but I am not, I swear I am not, but to make extra sure, I tried to wake up my grandmother
"Grandma, grandma..." (While shaking her back)
She woke up and said "Yes, what's the matter? Why are you still up its already late!"
"I woke up because of the dogs! Now I couldn't get back to sleep, what time is it now?"
She looked at her clock and said "It's just 11:30PM, go get some sleep now we need to get up early!"
I felt somewhat relieved when my grandmother woke up, but I was still afraid, so I prayed, I was able to sleep again after a few minutes.
I told them about what happened in the morning and they were not surprised! My aunt said she experienced lots of weird stuff too when she first moved in the house, but she said “it's not the house, it's what is living with us in this place.
