My name is Visal.

And I’m going to tell you a story. The story that I’m not sure whether it is real.

 

-----Morning

I am 2nd years students at KIT – Kirirom Institute of Technology. Perhaps, not many people would know this school, but it does exist. It is situated on the top of Kirirom Mountain. KIT has started a year ago, and there are currently only 48 students in total. Quite small and lonely, isn’t it?

Not Exactly, because KIT itself is situated inside vKirirom Pine Resort. They belong to the same company that is founded by Japanese entrepreneur. Interestingly enough, even though the company belong to Japanese entrepreneur, accommodation wasn’t influenced much from Japanese Culture. They still have Khmer Traditional feeling.

I just couldn’t help thinking of such whenever I passed this place. Anyway, I hastened my pace as I walked down to my school. The breeze of the Saturday morning came shockingly cold on the mountain. If I had chosen to stay in Phnom Penh city, perhaps I would never experience this.

 

-----School

It’s 7:58 and two minutes away from the class started.

*Phew*

It seems that I made it in time.

Sitting down in my seat, I started to taking out my laptops and charger. Setting it up, I finally turn my laptop on. The same locked screen appeared every time. I’m quite getting tired. Perhaps I should change it.

“Hey, Hey, Hey!”

Suddenly, my friend beside me beckoned with his elbow.

“What?”

Startled, I asked him.

“Look here”

Pointed, he showed me the webpage on his laptop. He apparently downloaded another ghost video.

“I’ve just downloaded it. Tonight, we’re going to watch it together.”

“I see. Ok. Have you talked with our friends yet?”

“I will talk to them later. They’re gonna love this. I download the high quality one, you see! Tonight is going to be fun. OK, I’ll stop talking now. You should too. I’m going to surprise them later.”

“Ok. I get it, I won’t tell anyone.”

I said so and patted his shoulder.

The class started and he closed down the browser!! He’s fast when teacher came behind him. Looking around, I saw my friend started learning seriously. Though, they are opening some other stuff that aren’t related to the lesson. All of them are too sneaky.

I smiled lightly to that and then I started focus on my learning.

The ghost story that he showed me suddenly got me into thinking about it.

Mountain are always known as sacred place. Some even said that spirit and ghost lurked around it. KIT is a boarding institute so we have to live in dormitory provided by the institute. Only weekend that we can visit our home.

Living on the mountain was exciting and refreshing. At the same time, there is something that you have be careful with it. Danger always lurking around and you can sometimes find poisonous insect crawling into your dorm as well. Though, we can always work out a way to solve it.

However, there is still something happened around you that can’t be explained with logic.

Like, is there someone or something is looking at you or not?

I am not sure.

What if something that I can’t see exist and it is looking at me? and further, it is right in front of me?

 

-----Dorm

 

After the long day studying and walking under the blazing sun, I felt a bit light headed.

And so I decided to sleep.

Time passed and I didn’t even know how long I had sleep.

Perhaps, it was because of my thought this morning. I began to think of the ghost and spiritual stuff again.

In the dream, I heard footstep of someone as he got close to my bed. Slowly, but gradually, he came closer and I began to hear the sound of fingernail scratching along the wall.

And then at the side of my bed, a hand appeared reaching for me. That hand feel so real and I began to panic. Even though, it was a dream,  I felt that if that hand manage to get me, something bad will happen.

*Haah!*

I woke up shocked and looked at the place where the hand appeared in my dream. However, I only find a piece of cloth hanging from above.

*Huff. Huff. Huff*

I breathed hard and sweated flow down. I can’t believe that I was scared of my dream at all. I calm myself down and went back to sleep.

And then that happened, right before my eyes, someone with his head and hand flopped down from above. Startled, I jumped from my bed.

“Heh”

I heard familiar voice, and when I looked again. He was my friend.

Pissed, I threw my pillow at him.

“The heck is wrong with you??!! Why did you have to do that??!!”

“Hahahaha! Scared?”

Laughing, he jumped from the bed above.

“More importantly, let’s go. It’s time”

“Time for what??”

“The movie, duh! Come on, everyone is waiting.”

I suddenly remembered and then I nodded.

“Ok. Let’s go.”

I got up from the bed and walked toward the place everyone agreed to meet up.

And so, we started our movie night.

Well, how to say this.

It was rather funny then frighten with everyone around. Some people hid beneath the blanket when the ghost come, and some jumped in startle. No one actually enjoy the movie, everyone enjoyed the time together. Even if I watched that movie alone, I think it’s be boring as hell.

After that, we separated and I went back to my bed. It was a tiring day, and fun at the same time. However, I still can’t explain the lingering fear that I had when I had that dream. Oh well, let’s go to sleep. I can’t just keep thinking about all of this stuff.

Besides, does ghost really exist?

I thought so and slept.

However, what I never noticed was that the window in my room. Suddenly there is a hand print on the glass and then faded away.
