Someone Special

Note: I'm not the author of this story. I've translated it from the original Japanese into English. Please do NOT copy and paste it somewhere else on the web without my permission.Thank you for your cooperation.


You guys.... Have you ever seen a real dead body?
I bet you haven't.
If you had you wouldn't be putting this thread up this casually.
Well, as for myself, I have.
A long time ago when I was still a kid I saw a body of someone who had hanged himself.
It was awful.....I went to see it just out of curiosity and afterwards regretted it from the bottom of my heart....
Both the face and body were swollen like a balloon...
The eyes were bulging...
The whole body was ghastly pale....
I saw something moving and they were maggots......
And then.... I ran home crying and before I knew I was throwing my arms around grandad hugging him tightly....
Then grandad just laid his hand on my head and ruffled my hair....
His hand felt bony and rough but it was warm...
And he gave me a candy....
It was so delicious.....
The taste was sweet, creamy and I remember feeling I must be someone very special for my grandad to give me such a wonderful candy....
Now I'm a grandad. And what else would I give my grandson but my Werther's Original?
Because he's someone special too.

This is a 2 channel log of an incident that took place back in 2004.

It is a long post so I divided it up in TWO PARTS.

I've been on a private railroad train but something is wrong.

alright.

107:Anonymous behind you: sage04/01/08 23:23
The train is the one I always use but for the past 20 minutes it hasn't stopped at any stations. Usually it stops every five mintues or, every 7 or 8 minutes at longest, but it hasn't stopped at all. There are 5 other passengers in my car but everyone is sleeping.

Strange Dream

Note: I'm not the author of this story. I've translated it from the original Japanese into English. Please do NOT copy and paste it somewhere else on the web without my permission.Thank you for your cooperation.

There was once a married couple living on their own.
Since about a month ago, day after day, the husband had been having the same strange dream.
He wasn't even sure if it really was a dream.

It went like this:
He would suddenly wake up in the middle of the night.
Then he would see a man, whose appearace was exactly like himself, clinging to the ceiling. This man would twist only his head around to look at him and say, "You've lived long enough, haven't you? Let's swap our places now."

So every morning it became a habit for the husband to greet his wife with the words,
"I saw that dream yesterday again."
Because it happened every day without exception, the wife began to really worry about him.
But one morning the husband got up and all he said to her was "good morning."
That took the wife by surprise and she asked him straight away, "didn't you see that strange dream yesterday?"
The husband replied:

"What are you talking about?"

The Warning

Note: I'm not the authour of this story. I've translated it from original Japanese into English. Please do NOT copy and paste it somewhere else on the web without my permission. Thank you very much.

Just after I started high school, mother went missing.
Father told me that mother had been having an affair for sometime.
"She's abandoned both of us and left," said father.
Looking at his sad face made me determined that I would remain being a faithful and loving daugther for him.
But since mother's disappearance, strange things started happening in the house.
The whole house seemed to be enveloped in a chilly atmosphere.
A door would suddenly open without anyone touching it, and things on the shelves would fall of their own accord.
That made me think, "maybe mother is already dead after all?"

I examined mother's shoes left in the entryway, and my suspicion turned to certainity.
If she had left, one pair of shoes should have gone missing.
But all of her shoes were still there. Then father must have killed mother in the house.

Why? What for? I felt a gnawing urge to ask him but I couldn't.
If mother is dead and then father gets arrested, I will be all on my own.
Father truly loved mother. If mother was the one who betrayed, she was to be blamed for what happened to her.
I'm just going to pretend nothing has happened. I decided.

But the strange occurrences did not stop.
One day I was lying in bed half awake and half asleep, when I heard the sound of footsteps walking around in the house.
Pitter-patter pitter-patter...
It was not father.
The sound was getting closer.
 Pitter-patter pitter-patter...
"Go away. Please go away!"
Even as I prayed, the foot steps reached my room and came in.
I felt lukewarm breath on my cheeks
I opened my eyes a crack and saw mother's face leaning over me, looking all vicious and menacing.
Then she said into my ears:
"Ge...eeet  O...oo...oouut."

I can't stay in this house any longer. I thought, but I could not think up of any excuses that might persuade father to move house. Strangely, it seemed I was the only one who was able to feel the ghost's presence. Father felt nothing at all.
Ever since mother disappeared, father changed his job and started working from home so that he could look after me better. He did most of the house chores too. After seeing his love and devotion to me, I could not bring myself to ask him,"'you killed mother, didn't you?"

So, I passed many more days pretending nothing was happening.
One evening I was sitting at a coffee table when I felt something bit into my toe. It was excruciatingly painful.
I looked down to see what it was that caused the pain, and I saw mother there.
Mother was lying underneath the table.

Father, who was cooking in the kitchen, sensed something was wrong and said, "are you alright, Mami (my name)?" But I just answered to him, "nothing. I just remembered I had some homework to do."
"The dinner is nearly ready. Why don't you come over here and do it on the kitchen table?"
I responded obediently to his words and opened my school bag.
And for the first time I noticed a note, folded in four, lying at the bottom of the bag.
I opened the note and saw some words scribbled in mother's handwriting:
"Mami, hurry and run away, your father is insane."

Mother had been trying to warn me all along.

The Living Doll Game



WARNING: This ritual is alleged to be MORE DANGEROUS THAN ONE MAN HIDE AND SEEK.
The doll's face might change.

【The Things You Need】

・Two sheets of mirrors
・One doll (a Japanese doll is best, but if not get something that looks as close to human as possible. No plushies.)
・One candlestick
・One scapegoat doll (anything will do as long as it's a doll)
・One strand of hair
・Salt*1 (5 spoonfuls) wrapped up in paper

【The Procedure】

1. Arrange the two mirros so that they face each other.
2. Between the mirrors put the doll and the candlestick.
3. Wait until it is 12 o'clock midnight.
4. Just as the clock strikes 12  light up the candle.
5. Say to the doll, "I will leave here a new body for you. Please take it" for five times.
6. Then say to it, "Let's play together" for five times.
7.  If you start hearing some rapping noises or start experiencing some other strange occurences at this point, it is an indication that the preparation has been done properly. But don't worry if nothing happens.
8. While keeping the salt close to yourself , say to the doll, "Please come and find me. If you find me I will give you my life" for five times. After that go to a large room or your own room, turn off all sources of light in the room, and sit zazen *2   with your back to the door. Make sure you sprinkle some salt on yourself too.
9. Now all you have to do is wait for the doll to come to you.

Note: If you ever feel you are in danger, go and hide in some place like a closet.

【How To End It】

1. Still keeping the salt close to you, go to the room with the candle.
2. When you arrive in front of the candle, say, "You lose. It's over now" for five times.
3. After you've finished saying it, blow out the candle and sprinkle some salt over your body.
4. Find the doll and sprinkle some salt over it too.
5. Turn all the lights on and create a  happy, cheerful atmosphere (this is important).
6. Keep this atmosphere for at least an hour.
7. Make sure you take the doll to a shrine where they can perform a ceremony on the doll to appease the spirit*3, within three days of the ritual.

【Important Things to Remember】

・You must do it alone. It won't work if you have other people around.
・You must NOT utter a word while the doll is going around and looking for you.
・Do NOT use up all of the salt on yourself at the beginning. You'll still need some of it at the end.
・Do NOT go outside during the ritual.
・You must NOT run away without finishing it properly. If you run away it will come after you.
・Make sure to end it before the day breaks. If you don't it will stay on in your place.
・You must take the doll to the shrine where they can perform a ceremony for it at the end.
・If you find yourself having to combat with the frog, snake or fox, be very careful.

*1 Salt - as usual, natural salt is best.

*2 zazen - a posture used in Zen Buddhist meditation. It usually requires you to sit cross-legged, with you your back straight. (see the picture on the left (top). For more info see wikipedia and Zen Meditation Instruction.








*3 A ceremony to appease the spirit inside a doll - a Japanese term for it is 人形供養(ningyo- kuyo). 人形(ningyo) means "doll" while 供養(kuyo)is a translation of "puja".
The picture on the left (middle) shows a scene from the Shinto-style ningyo-kuyo.



The pictures at the top of the post and on the left (bottom) show Awashima Jinja (淡嶋神社), a shrine in Wakayama prefecture famous for ningyo-kuyo.  As you can see the shrine's building is overflowing with dolls sent in from all over the country.

Ghosts really do exist

Note: I'm not the authour of this story. I've translated it from the original Japanese into English. Please do NOT copy and paste it somewhere else on the web without my permission. Thank you for your understanding!

This is a cryptic story!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I think ghosts really do exist.
When I was small I used to see another girl and called her my big sister.
She wore dirty clothes just like me and we lived together.

But one day I couldn't see her anymore.
My father and mother won the lottery.
They told me I used to just daydream because we were so poor.
We are very happy now.
But it looks like the lottery money is running out.

(updated) Have you got the ability to see ghost?

Please do NOT copy/distribute my works without permission. Thank you.

NOTE:
Before you try this ritual, YOU MIGHT LIKE TO READ THIS FIRST.
It seems there is more to this ritual than meets the eye.


Try out this test to see if you have got the ability to see ghost.


1. Close your eyes.
2. Visualize yourself standing in your room.
3. In your head, walk out of your room and make a tour around the whole house, visiting all rooms one by one.


Don't read the rest of the article until you have gone through all the steps above.

*
*
*

*
Are you done yet? :)


Now, did you meet any strangers in any of the rooms you went into?
If the answer is yes, you are psychically predisposed to see ghost! (Hurrah!!)
And by the way, that stranger you saw in your visualization was a real ghost.

One of my blog readers, Creepingsoftly, guides you through this ritual step by step in the cool video she made below!

The Face




Personally I wouldn't categorize this as a screamer but someone in the comments said s/he would consider it a screamer. LOL

The woman's face will just keep changing.
Just a bit disturbing, and not so scary (some people even find it funny.)

It might be scarier if you watch it in the dark.

Points

Note: I'm not the author of this story. I've translated it from the original Japanese into English. Please do NOT copy and paste it somewhere else on the web without my permission. Thank you very much for your understanding.


I was the only child in the family and had always been much cherished by both my parents.
My mother especially doted on me and she would never get angry with me even when I made a mistake or did something naughty; instead she would always just smile and forgive me.
Maybe she wasn't an ideal parent but I loved her the way she was.

One day I came home from school and was watching TV in the sitting room when the phone rang.
It was my mother.
'Manami (my name),  I'm in the supermarket right now. Can you check if we have carrots in the fridge?'
I said, 'Hang on,' and went into the kitchen.
I was about to open the fridge when something caught my eye. A small notebook lay on top of the fridge.
That's unusual! I thought. I opened the fridge, checked the content, and told my mother about it on the phone.
After I hang up I went to the kitchen again to get the notebook. The notebook was something my mother always carried with her and it looked a bit tattered.

Ever since I was small I had wondered about the notebook.
I thought of my mother who always smiled and forgave me.
But I do remember; every time I made a  mistake or did something naughty she quickly wrote something down in the notebook.
And she still continued to do so even now.
For a long time I wanted to know what she wrote inside.
Gripped by curiosity, I opened the notebook without the slightest qualm.
And in the middle of the page which I had opened randomly, I saw these words:

" Today's Manami,  -3 points.  Only 168 points left."

A Suicide Attempt

Note: I'm not the author of this story. I've translated it from the original Japanese into English. Please do NOT copy and paste it somewhere else on the web without my permission. Thank you for your cooperation.

This is a cryptic story!


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


On the way to work I always walk past an empty apartment block which is due to be demolished soon.
The place however has become a famous suicide spot because people keep jumping off it. I've heard rumours of ghost sightings in and around the building too.
Moreover, there are very few street lamps around the area so it gets quite creepy at night.

One night I had worked overtime and had to walk past it around 11pm. I was really scared. Then I thought I spotted some shadow on the rooftop of the building.

"!!??"
I thought my heart would stop right there.
I looked carefully again and this time I was sure that there was a person standing on the rooftop.

Oh no, is it a ghost...?
Just as I thought that, the shadow jumped off.

I heard a crash and saw a woman's body sprawled on the concrete road.

I immediately called the ambulence and rushed to the woman's side.
She was bloody all over and her legs were twisted in weird directions.
She wasn't a ghost but the whole thing scared the hell out of me.
I saw some people leaning over the balconies of the apartment and thought they must have heard the crash and come out to see what was going on.

Soon the ambulence arrived and took her away.
I went home but couldn't sleep for the rest of the night because I kept replaying the accident in my mind.

The next day I was informed that the woman was severely injured but alive.
I'm glad it ended up as just a suicide attempt.
If she had died it would have left me with a trauma.

How to experience something really scary

Note: I'm not the author of this story. I've translated it from the original Japanese into English. Please do NOT copy and paste it somewhere else on the web without my permission. Thank you for your cooperation.


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I love creepy stories and often read them, but I'm not the one to get scared very easily. I've been to haunted places but have never seen anything. I've even had a go at  the one man hide and seek but nothing happened. Yes, I got a little creeped out; but that was all.

So I thought, how can I experience something really scary? And that was when I got the idea of trying out that mirror ritual thing. You know the one where you use mirrors. I bought six candles to form a magic circle,  and 6 mirrors about the size of B5 paper which I placed both in front of me and behind me. And I waited until 44 minutes past 4, full of expectation. I made sure the room was as dark as I could make it, closing all the curtains and turning off all the lights. I had the laptop set so the light from it would turn off after one minute past 4:44.

I was breathing hard through my nose and some candles got blown off because of it. I was busy relighting them when my laptop went black. I jumped for one second. The candles were almost too bright and I got sick of staring at myself in the mirrors and finally blew them all off by myself.
Just then my mobile went off and my heart nearly stopped. It was a call from my mum and she said,
"H__ (my name), are you at home? In your room on the second floor?"
She just said those words and hang up. I thought that was weird and tried to call her back.

Then suddenly something hit and stuck on my curtain-drawn window (it looked like a silhouette of a woman). I panicked a bit but you know those things usually can't get inside if you have all the entrances to the room securely locked, right? And so I calmed down a bit and even started thinking stupid things like, lets take a picture of it I could become famous on the web. But no matter how hard I tried I couldn't capture the thing in the picture and after a while the thing itself disappeared so that was really disappointing.

And then I called back my mum but she said, no I've never called you, and I started feeling uneasy, but I really wanted to go to the loo and went downstairs.
When I walked past the mirror in the corridor I felt something was wrong, like suddenly I'd become taller than I actually am, and though I think now I shouldn't have done it, I walked back again to the mirror to take a good look at myself. Then I screamed. I never knew I had it in me to scream like that.
There was a woman sitting on my shoulders, grinning from ear to ear and headbanging like crazy.
I somehow made a dash for the loo and locked myself in and started trembling all over. Then mum called me again.

"H__, are you at home? In your room on the second floor?"
She asked me in the same tone of voice as before and I knew it would be the death of me if I told her I was in the loo,  so I told her I was in my room.
Then about 5 minutes later I was beginning to calm down and thought I could get out of the loo now, when -  knock knock - someone knocked on the door from outside. My fear reached its zenith. I was alone in my house.

Knock knock - came the sound again. 
Me "It's occupied."
Right after that a voice whispered  my name "H___ " into my ear and I blacked out.


Next I was in a dream and it was like a sports day at school.
An overexcited male voice was making an announcement and kept calling out my name,
H___, H___, H____.......

".....Yes, " when I replied,  the voice went:

Your legs have disappeared.    My legs disappeared.
Your arms have disappeared.  My arms disappeared.
Your eyes have disappeared.   My eyes disappeared.
You have disappeared.   I disappeared.
Scream.      I screamed.
Then suddenly someone let out an ear-splitting laugh.

I got out of the loo and blacked out for about an hour at the washbasin, and then I had a similar dream the next evening.
I was standing inside a park which had lots of old playground equipments in it.

A (someone's name) disappeared. B's legs disappeared.
C's eyes disappeared. D disappeared.

Errrr.....H__is in his room on the second floor sleeping. Sleeping.
An ear-splitting laugh followed. And I woke up.

Has anyone here experienced something similar to this?
