The following story was received on our paranormal story submission page.
Steven Wong submitted 2 fascinating but unusual stories which he experienced directly.
I like his submission very much as it shows that spirits and unseen beings are not actually restricted to specific areas like cemeteries or abandoned houses. Instead, they are everywhere. They are, in fact, like a whole community of living beings, exactly how we humans live around the world, except that the spirit community can see us, and their population would be twice or thrice of the population of mankind.
Different people feel spirits differently. Sometimes we can sense presences around us, sometimes we can see them. But in Steven’s case, he literally felt them tugging at him. Can you imagine that? How would you feel if you were in his shoes?
I will publish one of his stories first.. Read on, let me know what you think.
By the way… you can never guess what he experienced in his next story. Stay tuned for that!!

Story No.1 – Shadowy Figures
About 15 years ago, I was in Kota Bahru in Kelantan to attend my cousin’s wedding. We were put up in a small but comfortable motel just outside the main town.
We arrived on the eve of the wedding, and that night a couple of us went out to have dinner. We decided to retire early in anticipation of the wedding the next day.
When I reached the motel, I went straight to my room to sleep. The room was quite ordinary, and had a window facing the main road. There was a street light just outside the window. With the room light switched off, the street lights lit up the room with a soft amber hue. I did not draw the curtains to allow the street light to enter the room so that the room is not in complete darkness.
I fell asleep quite quickly due to fatigue after traveling from KL earlier in the day. I remember looking at my watch before I fell asleep, and the time was approximately 12.30am.
During the night, I was awoken after I felt my left toes being pulled. It must have happened for quite some time to have woken me up from the deep sleep I was in. Although I was awake, for the first few seconds my eyes were still shut, but I was conscious of my toes being pulled. When I opened my eyes, I saw two dark shadowy figures standing at the end of my bed looking straight at me.
I could see them very clearly as the room was adequately lit by the brightness from the street lamp just outside. After a short while, the two dark shadowy figures walked away, with one proceeding to the main door and then simply walked right through the door, while the other walked to the side of my bed and straight into the wall.
I wasn’t scared at all, but my mind was trying to decipher the whole experience. I knew I had just encountered some strange, paranormal stuff. After gathering my thoughts, I looked at my watch, and it was about 3.30am or so. I fell straight back to sleep shortly after.
The next morning, I told my cousin what happened and he mentioned it to his father-in-law. His father-in-law was the one that booked the rooms for the wedding guests. He said the motel did have a reputation for being spooky, but he had no choice as it was the only place with rooms available during the school holiday season.
That night after the wedding dinner, I retired back to my room. I slept through the night peacefully without any untoward incidents, and left the next day.
