Scary Story...

Monday, May 16, 2005

Ahhh.. Monday! It's gonna be a boring 2++ months with the conclusion of the English Premier League. What a season! Chelsea's first win in 50 years and at expense of relegated sides; Southampton, Norwich City and Crystal Palace... West Brom became the first side in Premiership history to avoid the drop after being in last place at Christmas. Since it's a lousy season again so far for me being a Man Utd fan, I am gonna tell you a scary story for a change...

The story takes place during the 7th month of the Chinese lunar calendar and revolved around a young lad named Sam. At that time, Sam was working as a general worker in a small company located at Tuas, Singapore. During one particular period, Sam's company was requested to work OT in order to meet an urgent deadline. By the time everything was done, it was already past midnight and Sam was the last person left in the office. He was wondering whether there were still any bus services at this hour. He decided to try his luck and quickly packed, locked up the office and ran towards the bus stop.

The bus stop was situated by a small narrow road with dense forestation surrounding the area. Sam waited for about 20 minutes and was about to make his way to the main road to catch a cab when a double deck bus appeared from nowhere. He hesitantly waved it down, boarded the bus and the only person he saw on the bus was a frail ghastly looking old woman. The old woman was dressed in white samfoo and black pant, attire favoured by maids in those early days. Sam felt uneasy upon seeing her and was about to go up to the upper deck when a voice ranged out in Cantonese, "Young man, don't go upstairs. Upstairs dangerous." It was the old woman. Her comment sent a chill down Sam's spine and he figured that the upper deck might be "dirty". He decided to heed the old woman's advice and grab a seat at the lower deck even though he felt uncomfortable by her presence. It was an agonizing 20 minutes journey before Sam reached his stop. He quickly alighted and turned to steal a quick glance at the old woman, who seated right back at him by the window. Sam hastened his pace and was fortunate to reach home safely.

The next day, Sam was requested to work OT and ended up being the last person in the office again. It was already past midnight and Sam was contemplating whether to take a cab home but decided against it in the end as he was short of cash. So he made his way to the bus stop again and after about 20 minutes, the same double deck bus appeared.

Sam boarded the bus and saw the same old woman again. He decided to go to the upper deck again when the old woman called out to him, "Young man, don't go upstairs. Upstairs dangerous." Even though, he heard it before, he still felt a certain fear inside him since it's the 7th month. To be on the safe side, he reluctantly took a seat on the lower deck and reached home without any incident.

The third day, Sam was asked to do OT again. By now he was worried as he didn't want to repeat the same process again. But he obliged nevertheless since it's his livelihood. Again, he was the last person in the office and he made the same journey to the bus stop. This time, checking his back occasionally as he walked.

The double deck bus arrived, he boarded it and saw the same old woman again. As he proceeded to go upstairs, the old woman warned him again, "Young man, don't go upstairs. Upstairs dangerous." Sam was fed up with the old woman and being rebbelious, he decides to go upstairs. He saw no one else when he reached the upper deck and slowly made his way to the back of the bus and sat down.

Sam's heart began pounding away as he waited anxiously for something to happen. After 30 minutes, nothing happens, Sam went downstairs to confront the old woman and asked her why she kept saying it's dangerous upstairs.

The old woman turned, stared at him and replied, "Young man, don't go upstairs. Upstairs dangerous. Upstairs got no bus driver."
