Hi ! Renkyoko Iglesias here !
Holloween is just around the corner……. and I just realized that in all the years that I’ve been writing about anything under the sun here on WordPress, I have never written about a topic that I like …… scary stuff and things that go bump in the night.
So, do you believe in ghosts or in the paranormal ? To be honest, I am not sure that I don’t.
Let me tell you a story. There were two unexplainable incidents that happened to my mother. One occurred when she was in 6th grade, the other in 2005. When Mom was in 6th grade, her grandmother who lived in the ” province ” fell ill. When the incident happened, the whole family had just come home from visiting her, and their grandmother was fine when they left her . Then one night, something woke up Mom’s older brother ( a college student ) . Something or someone sprinkled water on his face. He also felt that something bad happened to the grandma. With the parents’ permission, he and my mother went back to the province early morning ( which was about 250 miles away, by the way ) to check up on their grandma. She was already dead when they arrived. Then in 2005, the same thing happened to my mother. She freaked out when she felt water on her face, but was relieved that Dad was snoring beside her . She got up to check up on all of us, and yes, we were all * cough * alive. But she knew something bad had happened, so she took note of the time. It was 3 AM. At 6 AM, she got a call from my aunt in the Philippines to inform her that our second cousin, Jay, died of heart attack while playing basketball that night , 7PM Philippine time, or 3 AM US time . Jay was the son of Dad’s first cousin who lived next door to our house in the Philippines. Jay was only 25 years old. But then, Jay was only a second cousin, right ? Well, Jay lived with us here in the US for 4 years to study and went home to the Phil. right after graduation in October, 2004. By March, 2005, 5 months after coming home, Jay was dead from undiagnosed heart condition. Jay was part of our family for 4 years …. my parents treated him like a son. We were his immediate family . I guess Jay thought it was just right that we were one of the first to know that he had passed on by giving a sign.
So, here’s my question…. were they mere coincidences or was it something else ? You be the judge.
This is all for now. Thank you for reading.
