My ancestral home was huge like a mansion. It was built 100 years ago by my great grandfather. Ours was a joint family with atleast 15 people. There were many climbers, creepers and flowering plants in our backyard. There was a well too. People used to rumour that our house was haunted. My great grandfather had special powers to converse with ghosts.
Some 15 years ago....
It was around 10 in the evening. I along with my grandma was in the kitchen. She started screaming and I was really panicked. She shouted at me that some heavily built man was standing behind me. But, I didn't find anyone. The whole family gathered in our hall, listening the screams. There was no adult male present at home. My father and uncle rushed to our rescue. My aunt narrated everything which took place. To console my grandma, uncle told her that it could have been a thief and not an evil spirit. My father and uncle searched the whole backyard, but they didn't find anyone there. To make my grandma believe, they lied that they found a thief hiding in our backyard and on seeing them he ran away. Although my grandma didn't believe their words.
From that day my grandma's health started deteriorating. This incident was just the beginning. She came across many supernatural beings. She used to scream in her dreams. Especially we children were really panicked with this incidents. She complained of seeing blood in her bedroom. One of the scholar who used to deal with supernatural beings told us that there is something wrong with our home. He told us to recite some verses of quran daily on a high pitch.
My grandma died within months of the incident. I was the closest to my grandma and saw her many times in my dreams talking to me. We didn't come across any thing weird from that day. Everything became normal. There were some inner conflicts and everyone decided to part their ways. We abandoned our ancestral home for almost 6 years now. All my sweet memories are with that home. Whenever I happen to go through that street, I keep staring at the property without blinking eyes.
