Cambodian celebrated Pchum Ben. It was Buddhism's ceremony. Cambodian believed that ancestors would come to receive food, drink and other things in Pchum Ben. There were 15 days.
I did not like the crowd and I was allergic to incense smoke so I didn't go to pagoda during Pchum Ben.
On 14th day of Pchum Ben, I felt unwell. I felt sleepy since the morning. At night, I went to bed early.
I was half sleep half awake. I saw my grand mother standing at my head. Her expression was not good. She looked like she was angry. She stood there for long then she disappeared and I awoke.
The room was dark. I checked the watch, it was 12 AM.
I got up and left bed room. I went into bathroom that was in front of the bed room. When I was doing my job, I heard dog barking loudly then it howled. At first, I did not care but then I felt there was cold wind around my body and I felt someone was standing outside the bathroom.
I tried to confuse myself that it was myself who thought or imagined, it was nothing actually.
I finished my job. Then I opened the door slowly. I was released when I saw no one outside. I closed the door and went to my bedroom. When I arrived at the bed room's door, I felt someone was standing behind me. I turned my face. No one. The dog howled again. This time I was so scared so I opened the door and locked it. I switched on the light and ran to my bed.
I was so fear so I did not sleep until 5:00 AM.
My family got up around 6 AM to prepare things. I got up and I told them I would join them to pagoda. They were surprised for I had said I would not go to pagoda in Pchum Ben but they said nothing.
At the pagoda, I offered the food to the monk and whispered my grand mother's name. I prayed she would not anger with me and would not bother me.
Well, at night I had a peaceful sleep and had good dream.
