Have you heard this type of game before? Well, to others; this is a type of senseless spirit communication game liked by youths once upon a time.
This story went back till the time after my O Level exam.
One week after the examination, a group of my friends and I, 7 girls and 7 boys decided to go to Genting Highland for a visit.
We checked into 1st World Hotel and though we spent the day together in the theme park,at night the boys decided to go to the casino to try out luck while the girls decided to stay in the hotel room to chat.
After a while, one of the girls, Lisa suggested that they played a type of spirit communication games. No one objected and the game hence started.
There were two beds in the room, so the girls managed to join the beds and all of them laid in the bed. So as to increase the effect of the game, the room lighting was dimmed until only the silhouette of the players can barely be identified.
Lisa rose up and started to count: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7...
Then Mary who was beside Lisa continued: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7...
Then Alice also counted: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7...
The first round of counting went on pretty daunting for first few rounds until it was Lisa's turn again: She again counted 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8...
Wait, this couldn't be correct. But Lisa thought it was only her mind that was playing the tricks in the dark.
Then Mary continued to count: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8!
Alice also counted 8 and there is apparently an additional person hiding within the girls. Who was the 8th person?
The counting game continued until the last person, that is the 8th person stood up... All the girls at once looked at she or rather 'it'. It has extremely long hair that covered the whole body. Though its face cannot be clearly viewed, its long sticking tongue did observe to be hanging out until waist level.
Lisa started to yell out 'pontianak!' (female vampire) and rushed out from the room... and the rest of the girls followed closely behind.
The girls were just on time to bang into the boys who came back from the casino. The gang entangled together and fell down on the door in the corridor.
After entangling ourselves, Lisa told us their ghostly experience but none of us wanted to believe. So, we accompanied the girls to their room and there we all saw 'it' waving at us outside of the window...
Needless to say, the 14 of us cramped into one room for that night until the next morning. And we skipped the breakfast and hasitily rushed down the Genting Highland first thing in the morning.
