I once was told this story from my best friend at the time , this has happend to her father when he was about the age of 14. I would like to say that my friend is very easily scared and that she doesent like creepy stories , that is how I know that this story is real because she is not the person who makes stories like this up.
As an intro I would like to say that I am from Romania , I know I know vampires . Well this story is not about vampires , it is about a witch in other words a myth about a woman who would sometimes in the 70 make her appearence in a village near Craiova and torment or haunt people . Craiova is a very big and beautiful city , but it is also know to be a lil bit creepy. I have not witnessed this woman , thank God but I have heard many stories about her , like when people saw her they would go blind so nobody would believe them .
Like I said this story happend to my best friends father , lets call him Alex. When alex was younger he lived allone with his mother in a little house with a yard ,in the village near Craiova . One day , one of alex aunts came to visit . He was very happy because that meant his cousin would be joining aswell . They played the hole day in the yard and somehow managed to break the doornob.
As the night came the two mothers put the kids to bed and did the same thing in the nerby room. But before Alexes mom did go to bed she put a chair against the door so nobody could open it. I know people .. not the best idea but villages in Romania are pretty safe , everybody knows everybody. Thats why she did not think to much about it , she tought her neighbour could fix it the next day .
In the middle of the night Alex heard the door opening , than a woman all dressed in black with her long black hair covering her face enterd the boys room. The two started to hit each other with the elbows under the blanket and wispering to themselfs who this woman was . They were so scared they could not move . The woman took a chair that was in the room and sat at the end of the bed next to the boys. Then she started to tickel alexes feet , she did that for several hours . My God , I get goosebumps just thinking about it . Of cours alexes cousin fell asleep after a few hours but Alex didnt . He was petrified , who was this woman ?? what was she doing here ?? First alex tought that this is his aunt Maria , who was also living in the village, but why was she doing this , it didnt make any sense.
Meanwhile Alexes mother heard something , she tried to stand up and go check if the boys were ok but it was like somebody or something was holding her down to the bed . She could not move , she could not scream so there was nothing she could do .
As the sun began to rise the woman put the chair back and walkt out of the room . Alex did not know what do to, was that his aunt or what was that ??
Alex ran outside and managed to see the woman as she was on her way to leave the yard . He yelled aunt Maria , aunt Maria ,and the third time he yelled , the woman turned around . Meanwhile Alex hidd in the bushes.
Alex told his mother everything and his mother knew who this woman was ,she has heard a lot about the myth and was scared . What if she came back, what if next time there will be no next time . She than took alex and they seekt help at the village witch .
The witch told them they were lucky , they were lucky alex hid and didnt see the woman , he would be eighter dead or blind.
I know this story might sound crazy , but believe me people Romania is creepy, this is only one story I have heard out of thousands and all of them are creepy as hack.
