Why I Don't Stay Up Late At Night
Posted 5 months ago by
I was watching Pinoy Big Brother one Friday night. I think it was half past 10pm. I invited my mother to watch the tv show with me since the next day was a Saturday. But she couldn't because she had to go to work.
So I watched alone. I was the only one in the living room. If the tv wasn't turned on, it would be eerily quiet.
Then, my mother came downstairs and said she had to go to the toilet, which was located further back of our house with another door connecting to the kitchen before the toilet.
My mother always goes to the toilet every night before sleeping to defecate. So I smiled about it because I thought she had already defecated before. She was wearing her usual white bed gown.
Something happened in the tv show, like one PBB housemate did something funny and interesting. So interesting, I had to tell my mother about it. So I stood up from the sofa and went to tell her. Then, I suddenly noticed that the door connecting the dining room to the kitchen was closed. Like all the locks were locked. It sent chills through me. Like I was about to call my mother's name and shout about what happened on the tv show. But I was lost for words.
I realized that it may be an apparition, like a doppelganger but I convinced myself that maybe, I just didn't notice my mother going back upstairs after defecating.
I didn't finish the show. Although, I pretended I wasn't scared at the time because the ghost might notice (it's silly, I know). But I slept with the lights on.
I told my mother about what happened the next day and she couldn't believe it either. She was sure she didn't went to defecate twice.
I didn't watch the tv alone after that incident.
