Confession by Dian Raihan
It was in the early 2000s. My best friend had her 21st birthday bash at a chalet in Sentosa near Tanjong Beach. Close friends and family were invited. Most of us stayed overnight.
To get to the chalet, we had to walk quite a bit from the main beach area. The path to the chalet was very dark and barely lit. Basically if the chalet was not in use, you would not be able to see it easily because it was nestled in between a lot of trees. As I was walking to the chalet with my then-bf, I was already quite creeped out and remarked at how ulu this chalet was.
When we arrived, it was already about 9pm and the party was in full swing with BBQ and all. Some of us decided to play some rugby as the chalet had a large lawn and was surrounded by thick foliage and tall trees. As we were playing and being rowdy, we could all hear loud rustling in the trees but dismissed it for some animal that had been disturbed by the ball being accidentally thrown into or near the trees several times. The rustling happened on and off.
Eventually we got tired of playing and sat at the picnic table. We chatted and laughed until one of my guy friends, let’s call him Ifan, pointed out to my girl friend, let’s call her Sara, to look at the ball that we had left near the trees. We turned to look and saw the ball rolling upwards! The ball was left on an area with a slope so rolling upwards, against gravity was definitely abnormal. We all fell silent.
Then Ifan pointed and jokingly said to Sara," Eh your friend is here." We were all damn pissed and scolded him because you're not supposed to acknowledge "its" presence. We didn't feel comfortable anymore being outdoors. Since it was already 2am+, some of us decided to go back into the chalet to sleep. We slept on the floor in the living room, using whatever cushions, pillows and blankets we could find.
Sara slept next to her boyfriend while my bestie, the birthday girl, was sandwiched between Sara and me. Some of the guys slept near our feet and some were closer to the main sliding door and dining area.
Suddenly I woke up at about 3am+ and saw that my bestie was awake. She giggled and whispered to me that she was awakened by Sara because of her moaning. She asked me to peep over her shoulder to see if Sara and her boyfriend were making out or doing something 😆😆.
I peeped over and saw Sara and boyfriend sleeping. We giggled a bit because we thought that they were pretending to sleep. Both of us just stayed awake.
Then, we heard Sara moaning reeeeally loudly and we sniggered, thinking that maybe both Sara and boyfriend were "getting it on". I peeped over again, and again, saw Sara and boyfriend sound asleep. We sniggered to ourselves again.
We heard Sara moan loudly again and this time both of us looked at Sara and saw her shaking but her boyfriend was sound asleep next to her. Our first thought was Sara was having fits!
My bestie tapped Sara on the shoulder and asked if she was OK. No response. Then Sara suddenly moaned and began shaking again, with her hands curled up and her feet pointed and stiffened. My bestie kept tapping and calling her name to wake her up but Sara would not wake up. We woke Sara's boyfriend to see if he could help her or if he knew about any medical conditions she had. He tried waking her up too but she still would not wake up.
By this time, quite a few of our other friends had beem woken up by the commotion. Ifan took a look at her and said that she looked like she had been possessed in her sleep. We all scolded him again for acknowledging "its" presence when the ball rolled upwards against gravity and told him it was his fault if she really was possessed.
Ifan said he knew what to do.
He went to get some water, muttered some prayers into it and spread the water over her face then prayed over her.
She kept moaning loudly with her body shaking but fully stiffened head to toe. After some time, he then pulled on one of her big toes while saying some prayers. This helped because Sara's body eventually went limp.
We laid her down again and he washed her face with more of the water, then tapped her face to wake her. She finally came to her senses and told us what happened.
She said she had a dream that she was being chased by an entity and was trying her best to run away from it. The entity told her that if it caught her, she was doomed. She felt damn tired but had to continuously run to escape the entity. She said in the dream she was screaming and saying prayers very loudly but it continued to chase her. At one point, she could hear us calling her name but just could not respond. She knew she couldn't move her body and her moaning was actually her screaming!
It was already around 6am+ when she finally snapped out of it. Imagine screaming for a good 3-4 hours but nobody could hear you???
Ifan inadvertently brought the entity home with him when he pulled it out through her big toe. His parents stopped him dead in his tracks outside the house because they could see it following behind him. They called an ustad who got rid of the entity, finally.
Needless to say, Ifan felt quite bad for bringing it upon Sara that night.
Those chalets are now no longer being rented out and apparently used for other purposes.
