My story wasn’t really a “back to school” scenario but it happened on my early days of senior high school year. Forgive my English for it is not my first language. Anyways, I was 15 when one of my scariest paranormal encounter happened and it happened under three days. I lived in one of the villages of the town of San Manuel in the Phillipines.
Our town, well, I would say that most people believe in the paranormal and I grew up believing, fearing and respecting the unknowns.
I am not the most religious person in our village ( no one knows but me) but I kept my mind open to these “things”. The school I went to as high school is located at the central village of our town, and is one of the oldest school there. Rumors has it that the land where my school was built on was once either a cemetery or a prison grounds during world war two.
Security guards would tell us stories about hearing chain sounds being dragged during their night patrol in the area ( yes, our school has a night shift security guard, deal with it), sightings of women in white, and there is a one particular area on our school that they refuse to go check in the night for a reason they refuse to tell us kids and guess where my story begins, yup, you guessed that right. It was our early days of senior life and our section was picked to clean an abandoned classroom one day due to increasing numbers of students.
I didn’t mind because that means we wouldn’t have to go for our next two classes.
Now this classroom is not connected to any buildings in our school. it was surrounded by shrubs and 2-3 mini balete trees and this is the area our security guard refuses to check. Things went smoothly. We started at about 1 pm and planning to stop at 3 pm and continue the task the next day.
The girls clean the inside and us boys cleaned the outer area, picking up trash, taking away the trash bags, any heavy chores the girls would not able to do. As we were closing 3 pm, one of the girls, we’ll call her Sherry, collapsed to the ground but only for a brief moment,as our teacher and classmates began to surround her, she got up immediately. Needless to say, we finished earlier than what is planed.
They gave Sherry water and let her cool down for she claims that she’s just exhausted due to the heat. She’s not wrong, the heat that afternoon was fucking insane. As everybody rest and prepared to go to our next class, I noticed one of my classmate, we’ll call her Vally, she looks scared for some reason.
I brushed it off since we were all exhausted and maybe that I just imagined it. Now, Vally was known in our class as the girl with the “third eye” open. Meaning that she can see what the naked eyed can’t, a sixth sense. She’s not creepy though, she’s on of the most cheerful girl in our class and everyone likes her. Moving on, we were now on our last period class, Physics. As our Professor discuss, Professor Ben, I glanced at the clock, “quarter to 4”, I mumbled, “can’t this class get any faster”……..BLAAAM!!!
Sherry collapsed again, we tried to held her up but this time, there is a resistance. She opened her eyes, bloodshot eyes, saliva leaking from her mouth. She glared on each one of us with the most evil look, a look that gives me the chill until today. Filled with hate and anger. She began trashing the table, screaming gibberish words.
Me and my friend,John, two big bodied boys have to restrain her as my teacher try to talk to her and calm her down, but damn, she’s strong as fuck. She’s not skinny but she’s also not athletic so the two of us must not have a hard time dealing with her. She calmed down after what’s like hours, but still growling. Then she collapsed again, after a few minutes, she woke up without any memories of the events. My section started to calm down too now, the crying girls stopped, we were now feeling safe until another one of my classmates , Rem. collapsed too and did the same as Sherry did.
We restrained her but now Prof Ben sent a kid to get the school pastor for he suspects something supernatural. the pastor came and tried to do an exorcism. Fear enveloped my as I held her, and i can see it in my friends eyes too. I fell holding another entity and not my classmate. After a grueling battle of faiths, Rem calmed down and loss consciousness and woke up after a brief moment also no memory on what happened to her. The teachers asked us to go home now and took Sherry and Rem home too.
They also had a discussion with each other but did not shared with the rest of us.
Day 2- In Physics Class
Everyone is edgy, but are trying to forget what happened yesterday. Class went smoothly as expected. Surprisingly everyone is present, even Sherry and Rem. I looked at the time again, quarter to 4 and I glanced at Vally accidentally, I froze.
She was glaring at one of our classmates, Ares, with the most sinister glare i’ve ever seen in a human eye. The fear that enveloped me the last day came back again. Then she lunge, I swear to God! She fucking lunge at him,her hands trying to grab him by the neck. Turns out I’m not the only one who noticed her because one of my classmates grab Ares before she could choke him. Fear filled our room again.
One kid ran out to get the pastor immediately. Prof Ben and my friend was the one holding her now and she’s stronger than the two the last day. She was trashing, screaming, cursing and now trying to threaten us. Her hands kept getting free so I help Prof Ben and my friend to restrain her as we wait for the pastor. The Classroom was evacuated, we were the only ones left inside. Other kids began crowding the classroom. This spirit is more sinister than the last one.
The pastor came, began to exorcise but Vally, spoke… in a deep voice not belonging to her. ” THEY KILLED US!! NOW I AM GOING TO KILL YOU!!!” I almost let her go because of those on holy words spoken in an unholy voice. The pastor commanded the kid who summoned him to get his holy water. After an hour, but felt hours. She calmed down, I let her go part of me still scared and relieved.
I went outside, the crowd was already gone, due to the interference of other teachers. I checked my phone, the video i tried to take while prof Ben and my friend was holding her….and saw something. A black figure the shape of a woman passed behind them slowly, then Vally began to act out again. trashing, and cursing. I deleted the fucking video immediately fearing the spirit would get me next.
The pastor and Prof Ben was forced to take Vally to the town Church for only a priest can only exorcise that spirit according to the Pastor. it was just too powerful for him.
The priest was asked to bless the whole classroom. Every one on the class prayed and I prayed too. Vally was there, Sherry and Rem too. Everyone was just silent. When the priest was to give the final blessing and pour some holy water, Vally interrupted him and asked is she can pour it.
She poured the bottle on two different places. And the last place she had to bring her arm up as if she’s pouring it on a much taller entity than her. After the whole thing settled and back to normal. me, my friend Kenji and John asked her what she saw. The day when we were cleaning the abandoned classroom. She just said that there were two Women in there an old lady and a child. And they both touched Sherry before she collapsed to the ground. The old woman is the stronger and angrier one. We asked her if she can still see them.
She did not answer.
I don’t believe that the three girls made it all up. They are one of the nicest and religious persons i know and were also not the prankster type. I am 22 years old now and i still have goosebumps and kept looking at my back while typing my creepy paranormal encounter.
