I have a female friend whose brother always complained of headaches. To protect their privacy, I shall call my friend Jenny and her brother David. David had went to see the doctor several times but it did not cure his headaches.
So one day while having lunch with Jenny, I asked her if she was willing to meet up with my friend Thomas’ mom. I told her that Thomas’ mom had been known to cure mysterious illnesses but I stressed that she is not a doctor but someone who has the gift to heal others. If you’ve read my previous posts, you would know by now that Thomas’ mom also has the ability to see dead people.
Jenny agreed to persuade her brother to meet up with this old lady. I brought her and her brother to Thomas’ house the following week. It was in the evening time after Jenny’s brother came back from work.
Thomas welcomed us and introduced his mother to both Jenny and her brother. The old lady started with a tarot card reading and after going into deep trance for a while, opened her eyes and said “You are in danger. You are being followed.”
“Followed by whom?” asked David, stunned.
Thomas’ mom looked into his eyes and whispered, “Every evening when you come back from work, this long haired female ghost in red dress follows you to your house.”
I could see David’s face instantly turned deathly pale.
My own hair was standing.
“However,” Thomas’ mom continued, “she could not get into your house as your house is being protected.”
Jenny was shocked and blurted, “Why is she following my brother?”
“There are many reasons... but she’s definitely up to no good.”
“What should we do?” Jenny asked.
Thomas’ mom thought for a while then said, “You will do exactly what I said. I don’t care whether you are a Christian or a Buddhist. You just follow.”
She continued to explain that some people who sought her help were Christians and they did not agree to burn incense and wear amulets as it was against their religion. Jenny and David were both Buddhists so they did not have a problem adhering to her advice.I could not remember exactly what she asked them to do except that it involved some prayers, burning of incense and staying indoors after dark at night. She also burnt an amulet (“fu” in Chinese), dissolved it in a glass of water and asked David to drink it.
One week later, Jenny called me up to say that David’s headaches were gone. They were to meet up with Thomas’ mom again later that day and asked me to come along. But I was busy that day and decided not to go.
It was only a month later that I bumped into Jenny at a shopping mall. I asked her about David and she said he’s OK and he had no more headaches. But she told me the night after they did the burning of incense as instructed by Thomas’ mom, David was involved in a car crash. The car was damaged very badly but incredibly, David only had a small cut on his hand.
When Jenny asked her brother what happened, David said “I was driving when suddenly a lady with long hair and dressed in red stood in front of my car. I swerved to avoid her and crashed into the drain.”
Note: This is a true story except for the ending. I spiced up the ending to make it sound scary. Hope it works. The real ending is this - David did not get involved in a car accident. After doing exactly as instructed by Thomas' mom, his headaches gradually went away and that was the end of it. Did he believe about the female ghost who followed him every night? Yes, but after his headaches were gone, he knew she no longer followed him.
Regarding the car accident at the end of the story, I did not really made that up. I just simply combined two real stories into one. Thomas' mom once told me about a lady who came to see her about her son. He was having a spate of bad luck recently. When she recommended the lady to burn incense for her son, she refused saying that it's all mumbo jumbo. Furthermore, she's a Christian and would do no such thing. Two weeks later, the lady came crying to Thomas' house. She wept that her son died in a fatal car crash. The car landed in a drain and was badly damaged. Thomas' mom did not console her. Instead she said, "I told you what to do but you refuse to listen. Why do you cry? It's too late to do anything now."
