We used to have this creepy corner in camp...it was also a prowler checkpoint.
Like W2G, we only confirmed it was not our imagination when one day we started talking about how chilly the corner was whenever we passed it and everyone stared at one another coz we all had the same sensation.

Amazing - to be able to 'see' the apparition. And must commend you for being so calm. My goose bumps were on full alert mode as I went thru your story :sweat: Very often, we are afraid of what we do not know....ooops, better stop giving ideas to the participants of debate teams :laugh:

Way2GO wrote:It happened at a worksite dat was previously operated by AngMos.
d facility was more than 10 y.o.
d boiler in it was problematic, it would trip frequently which necessitates re-firing whenever it occurs.
I was on d witching watch fr d 12 am to 4 am.
d boiler itself was more than 3 storeys high. To get to d boiler, one has to climb two flight of stairs,
then a short walk up another flight of narrow stairs to access d firing mechanism.
It started to happen one nite as I was going to re-fire d boiler.
At d top of d 2nd flight of stairs just as I begun to take d short walk to d 3rd flight of stairs, I begun to sense a presence behind me. I started to walk faster, it also picked up pace n was getting ever closer.
I knew dat there was no other colleague nearby at those wee hours.
So I hurried up to d top of d 3rd flight of stairs which abuts onto a small platform where one can access d firing mechanism.
By dis time, d apparition was also at d stairs.
Without turning ard to look, I can clearly sensed he was a Caucasian, middle age with sandy hair.
He wore khaki bermudas n a brown workshirt. I could also make out a vague image of his face, though d facial details never came into sharp focus.
One can’t rush thro’ d firing sequence – there is a series of mechanical steps dat one has to follow in d right order with gud timing to obtain d right start.
If one misfires, one wld hv wait for a while before starting d whole sequence again.
So dat was d situation I was in - I want to get thro’ it quickly n get out of there but I can’t if I want to do it right at d first try. As I started d firing sequence, I begun to sense d apparition right at my shoulders.
After firing, d shortest way back to d Control Room wld be re-tracing d way fr which I came.
But to avoid o coming face to face with d apparition, I took a circuitous route up another flight of stairs at d boiler, it was still following me, got onto another platform dat runs at right angle to it, turned down another short flight of stairs to yet another platform so dat I was basically making a 360 deg turnaround to face d apparition. Then it was gone.
d next day, when taking over from a colleague who was on d 8pm -12 pm watch, I asked him if he sensed anything when he go to fire d boiler.
He said he did. Then I asked him to describe his experience.
He went on to describe d image of d Caucasian EXACTLY as wat I sensed. It freaked out both of us.
For many nights after dat incident, it was a constant companion whenever each of us make d short trip to fire d boiler, but it only happens at late hours when on one else was ard. It nvr appears in d day. Just as mysteriously, after some time, it was gone.
d two of us who sensed it speculated it was prolly someone who died at d boiler site n he was just watching over us.

Bless his soul.


:yikes: getting goose bumps now :scared:

At least he (or it) was a good spirit trying to guide or watch over you and your buddy. *shudder*

Actually, I think he was just being a kaypoh, he wanted to know how to fire the boiler, and who's the best one who could do it :laugh: He would have given W2G a 'marksman' if only he didn't get him puzzled by going one big round after he's done the job :laugh: So once he found out how to get it done, he left to be reincarnated.

Way2Go,
you were lucky he did not harm you. Probably escorting you.
btw pls type words in full can or not hah ? I was trying hard to decipher the words for the entire story so in the end, the suspense became 'diluted'.
kamsiah kamsiah :evil:
