WARNING: This story is a bit gory! πŸ˜†✨

I have an uncle whose job is a prison guard. 

According to him, the true job of a prison guard is not keep an eye on prisoners, but teach them human kindness.

So my uncle tries to listen to prisoners' stories whenever he has a chance. 

Their stories mostly revolve around the crimes they committed, and those who turned themselves in often tell him what made them decide to do so. 

One time, my uncle was in charge of a prisoner who told him the following story. I will call this prisoner Kato. **


Kato used to be a regular office worker. 
He was in the prison for murder.  

The person he murdered was his own wife. 
After he murdered her, he didn't know what to do with her body, so he hacked it into chunks and kept them in the fridge. 

Every night, when he came home from work, he would take one chunk of her body out of the fridge, and minced it, while he pulverised the bones using a food processor. Then he would flush both of them down a toilet. 

He continued doing this for many days, until the most of her body was gone and only one more body part remained to be dealt with ---  that is, her head. But understandably, he couldn't bring himself to get rid of it so easily. 

The head had remained in the fridge for several days when Kato had a dream. 
In the dream, his murdered wife sat at the table in the kitchen, with her head bowed down. 

Her head was so deeply bowed down that he couldn't see the expression on her face.
However, her hands, which rested on the table, were shaking. 

As he watched, the shaking of her hands became more and more violent, until it reached the point where it caused her fingernails, followed by her fingers, to break into pieces and scatter all over the table.

Within a very short amount of time, her whole forearms disappeared in the same way. He watched in horror as copious blood gushed from the torn arms and the bones rattled on the table.  

It was then that Kato woke up. He was drenched in sweat. 
The dream left him in a state of shock that he couldn't move for a while.

As soon as he sufficiently recovered, he went to the kitchen. There he discovered the fridge door had somehow become ajar; and through the crack, his wife ---- who was now only a severed head ---- was fixing him with an angry stare. 

Startled, Kato shut the door, and sealed it up with adhesive tape to keep it firmly closed.

But at this point, he hadn't yet thought about turning himself in to the police.


On the same day, as Kato still couldn't make up his mind about what to do with the head in the fridge, he decided to purchase another fridge. 

It was a small fridge for one person, and he brought it home by himself without using a delivery service, so that no one would see his old fridge covered with tape. 

That night, he had a dream again. 
It was the same dream as before in that his wife sat at the table in the same place, but it began where the last dream left off.

Blood was already dripping from her torn arms. 
This time though, it was her legs that were kicking the floor.

The kicking became more and more violent and frantic, and with that the sounds grew louder and louder too.
Bang! Bang! 
Bang bang bang! 
Bang bang bang bang bang bang!! 

The pieces of meat from the torn legs scattered all over the place as a pool of blood quickly formed on the floor.
On the table, the arms continue to shake, scattering meat and spurting blood.  

Drops of blood splattered across Kato's cheeks too, but he couldn't move his body. He could only watch and silently pray inside his head: "please, please, let me wake up now!" But despite his desperate pleas, the nightmare mercilessly continued. 

The whole room had become a mess, with splatters of blood gleaming darkly everywhere. 
Then abruptly, those legs and arms stopped moving, and his wife slowly began lifting her head. 

As she did so, her hair which had been hanging loosely about her, clung to her face, and from the gap between her strands of hair, he saw her eyes glaring up at him. 

The moment her head was completely raised ----

"AAAaaaaahhhhhgh! Give! Me! Back! My bodyyyyyyyyyy!"

--- her deafening scream resonated in the room. 

It was this scream which finally woke him up. Like the last time, he was soaked with sweat. 

The dream was the catalyst he needed to stop dithering and get rid of the head. He sprang out of bed and went to the kitchen, but his motivation evaporated altogether the moment he saw the fridge. 

The many strips of tape that had securely kept the door shut had been pulled apart, and his wife's head had dropped from the fridge. Her eyes were wide open, and they were glaring at Kato. 

It dawned on Kato then that there was no escape from it, and he decided to turn himself into the police. 


My uncle concluded the story by adding the following words: 
"I learned from this that the grudge of murdered souls would live on, long after their bodies perished." 

** Kato (εŠ θ—€) --- the original text just referred to him as "A," but I thought replacing it with a proper name would give you a smoother reading experience. πŸ˜†✨ Kato is also one of the commonest surnames in Japan, along with Sato (佐藀) and Suzuki ( 鈴木). Suzuki, by the way, literally means "Bell (suzu) Tree (ki)." πŸ””πŸŒ²

  1. Somehow this reminds me of Ju-on. Such powerful spirit! It could be just his imagination out of guilt, because if his wife's spirit is that powerful, I don't think he can escape from her even in prison XD

    1. LOL ⭐
      I think it's because of that last picture 🀣🎡✨

    2. Oh yeah,and the parts where the head is glaring at him, I can't think of anything else but the wife's face from Ju-on 🀣
      Thanks for another great story ^^ I still want to know the reason he killed his wife tho :v

    3. You are welcome!

      The picture actually reminds me more of Sadako from the Ring.πŸ˜†πŸŽ΅⭐

    4. Thank you for your comment too, btwπŸ’š✨

  2. Thank you everyone for your comments, by the way!

    I am already planning to upload a cool story for Christmas! I can't wait to share it with you πŸ˜†πŸŽπŸŽ΅✨

  3. Poor man, brave enough to dismember and pulverize the body, but dumb enough to not stuff the head in a duffel bag (preferably with 7 other heads) and maybe toss it somewhere. Or maybe he should have gone Jeffery Dahmer, John Haigh (afterall it's probably easier to dissolve only the head), or Issei Sagawa. Or maybe simply don't kill if you can handle the guilt later.... or maybe just go eco-friendly by reusing the head for amusement park prop like at disney pirates of carribean, movie prop, or decorations, or personal amusements, well I don't judge :D

    Yeah i'm fun at parties, sorry for being disturbing XD
    Thanks for the story Saya! :D

    p.s. this also reminds me of a horror movie about an American man with a Japanese woman during a post war era, of which the woman happens to be an Ubume (or some other Youkai, i forgot), forgot the name of the movie, it was a series. Very creepy thought.

    1. Well I never!πŸ˜†✨I don't think I could have come up with so many different uses for a severed head!

      I have never heard of that film before but it sure sounds intriguing!

      Thank you for your comment πŸ˜†πŸŒˆπŸŽ΅✨

  4. I'm more interested about his motives before the murder. Why did he do it?

    1. Love turned into hate is the most troublesome thing!πŸ˜†⭐

      But I think if love could turn into hate, it wasn't really love in the first place!

  5. For a second after the first dream I thought he would find the bodyless head of his wife struggling in the kitchen trying to make him breakfast, and seeing how even after murdering her she still loved him enough to make him breakfast he would break down crying and turn himself in because the power of love and all that.

    Been a long time since I read one of your stories. I remember back a few years ago reading your cryptic stories and hanging out in the comments section with everyone trying to figure out the secret. Good times! So glad you're still around and posting.

    PS, love the new site design!

    1. It's unfortunate if you have a rich imagination πŸ˜†⭐You are welcome and thank you for commenting!🌈✨

  8. For a moment, I thought he was going to eat his wife. Ha ha. Ha.

    Scary read, Saya-san. Thank you :)

    - nunu -

    1. That would have been beyond gross.πŸ˜†✨

      Thank you so much always for commenting! πŸ’ž

  9. Nice one. I wonder if Kato go visit even in jail.

    1. Gosh, I hope not! But then he wouldn't be so lonely 🀣✨

  10. Wow this one really gave Ju-On vibes like someone else said 😦😦 You always have the best stories! Also as a little question are you ok with people reading your stories? like on a tiktok/youtube video? I would love to share your work with other people and have links/credit to your account? its okay if you aren't comfortable I just think your stories are too good to not be sharedπŸ˜„ ♥︎

    1. I am glad you enjoyed the story!πŸ˜†✨

      Sure! Go ahead and share it on those platforms! Thank you so much for asking me first πŸ’–✨

  11. Hi Saya! I hope you're having a wonderful day! I enjoy reading your blogs they are really interesting. I do have a question about one of your posts though, where did you first discover this curse/ritual? I cant seem to find it anywhere besides the scaryforkids and TGIMM websites.
    Anyways, take care! <3

    1. I think I first found it on 2chan. The others probably copied it from my blog.

    2. I read about this not long ago and I noticed that on other websites that the mantra is a bit different than yours, just difference in spacing I think. I don't know if it makes a difference.

    3. What mantra? πŸ˜†✨
      Translations always differ from one another.

    4. Hey I just saw the comment and I did a bit of checking myself, the phrase on other websites have different spacing than yours. yours is "On-beiro-kya-mashironi-sowaka" while on other websites its "On-be-iroki-yamashironi-sowaka." I wonder if there is a difference or difference in meaning.

    5. Sure but I didn't understand what you were talking about because you didn't write it at the post where this mantra was mentioned. LOL

      In the original Japanese text, there are no spaces between those words. BUT it's definitely not pronounced like"On-be-iroki-ya. " The correct pronunciation is "On-beiro-kya."I hope it helps.

    6. The reason is because the original text writes "きゃ" with a small ゃ , and togethet with き, it can only be translated as "kya." If it were a big γ‚„, it would beきや in Japanese, and it would have been translated as Kiya. So the other sites are wrong.

    7. Oooo thats super interesting, wonder if it makes a difference or means something else! also do u have the link to the original post or just a copy?

    8. I don't think the original post is available now. You can find the copies everywhere on the internet. Search for "γŠγ‚“γΉγ„γ‚γγ‚ƒγΎγ—γ‚γ«γγ‚γ‹" which is the mantra in Japanese.

      The other person who translated it is probably not a native speaker of Japanese and that's why the translation of it sounds awkward.

      The mantra sounds like it might have something to do with Mikkyo, the esoteric Buddhism in Japan.

    9. seems quite scary, do you think it's real or a creepypasta since its was originally posted on 2chan?

    10. Things like this become real when you believe in them. I am not 100% that it came from 2chan.

    11. I just find it a bit iffy you know? but anyways it's interesting to say the least. Thank you so much for you time Saya!

    12. I googled the mantra and found a website that had this one "Onbeiro Kamashiro ni Sowaka." not sure if thats right since used google translate for it since it was in Japanese, so I dont know.
      same with this one, but then again, I used google translate.

    13. Excuse me I accidentally deleted your previous comment. Yes mine is the correct translation, as I told you before. I put those spacing better the words so it makes it easier for you people to pronounce it. I think I answered your question now so we may stop discussing about this.

    14. Oh I'm sorry I didn't really understand what you meant at first when you replied, I got it now. Thank you! I appreciate you taking your time to reply.

      Have a good day!

    15. You are very welcome! Have a good day yourself!

  12. Hi Saya, always so happy to see your updates! The new them is great :) If I could give one piece of feedback though - there doesn't seem to be an "older posts/back" button on the individual posts, so if one is catching up on a few stories at once, we need to keep going back to the home page ><

    1. I see! πŸ˜†✨ Sorry about the inconvenience! I will keep that in mind the next time I decide to change the theme. I am not sure what I can do about it right now!
