It was already dark outside when our “supposedly short” meeting was finished. All the lights in the other rooms were already turned off, including some in the hallway. Some of us started fooling around and scaring each other off. Some of the girls were screaming, running around while being chased by the boys. Our adviser then decided to tell us some stories about the paranormal activities other faculty members and non-teaching staff have experienced on this floor. I tried hard not to be scared but my heart was already beating really fast.

According to our adviser, some of the teachers have seen a female student running around at night going from one room to the next. When they’d call her attention or walk to where she was standing, she’d suddenly disappear. Some could see her enter one door of the first room on the floor and come out from the room at the end, while others could only hear her footsteps as she run.

Legend has it that the girl died after three of her friends left her while they were playing tagu-taguan (hide and seek). The girl hid behind one of the cabinets and eventually suffocated. The next day, she was found dead.

There are rumors that her friends locked her inside on purpose while others claim that she committed suicide right after she was raped by a priest. The are versions that claim that the girl slit her wrist and bled to death inside the cabinet when she found out that she failed one of her subjects.

Since her demise some 20 years ago, people still see her either running in the hallway looking for her three friends whom she thinks are still hiding or running from the priest who raped her.

James was walking beside me when I felt something brushed against my behind. And of course my initial reaction was to grab whatever it is that touched my ass.

“Gago ka!”

I caught James’ hand and he just started laughing.
