The Tagaytay Ghost Story

It is almost the end of the year and there are a lot of clutters on my drawer that I need to get rid of. Started going through my collection of stories and I came across this which I'd like to share with you. This happened a few months ago along Tagaytay Road.

A guy was left behind by a pack of mountain climbers. They were a large group and the poor guy didn't bring a cellphone. He crashed his bike somewhere between picnic Grove and DBP. To make things worse, a storm came, forcing him to walk.

The guy was on the side of the road, hitch-hiking on a very dark night. Not a car passed by. The wind was so strong and he could hardly see a few meters ahead of him.

Suddenly, just before the junction going to Manila, he saw a car slowly approaching, ghost-like out of the gloom. It slowly rolled toward him and stopped. It was raining hard, the wind blowing all around him. So what would the poor guy do? He got into the car and closed the door and realized that nobody was behind the wheel.

The car slowly started moving again. The guy was so terrified to even think of jumping out and running for dear life. He started to pray, begging for his life. He was sure that the ghost car would go off the road and he would plunge to his death. Just before the car reached a curve, a hand appeared through the window and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car to a safe spot.

Terrified, the guy watched the hand reappear everytime they reached a curve. Finally, the guy gathered his wits and leaped from the car and ran to the nearest place where there were houses.

Wet and in shock, he went into a store and, his voice quivering, ordered two bottles of Red Horse Beer. He told the people around about his horrible, supernatural experience.

Silence enveloped everybody when they realized that the guy was apparently sane and not drunk.

Half an hour later, two men walked into the same store. One of them said to his companion, pointing to the first guy, "That's him...he was the guy who rode the car while we were pushing it!"
