One more ghost story: Saint Carlo Primary School
My old friend Clair
Saint Carlo primary school is a very old school with 2 very old buildings a short one and a bit taller one that was repaired after it had been damaged after the big earth shake in 1992. A friend of mine "whose name is Clair" who I haven’t seen for almost ten years was teaching in the school. It was a good surprise when I received a phone call from her a few weeks ago and we’ve decided to meet and chat a little and share memories. Last Friday she came to my home and it was great to see she’s still pretty as she used to be. Clair was panic a bit when she told me she needs my advice in a very critical thing that might affect her life.
She’s a grade 2 teacher in Saint Carlo School where her husband is the principal of the school. Her husband faced a strange problem when the math teacher in the same school told him a very strange thing happened when he was in one of Grade 5 classes. A boy sitting back started to scream and cry then he felt asleep for about 5 minutes. When the teacher tried to wake him up he found some bruises on his face. When the boy woke up he told him that the boys were hitting him. When the teacher wanted to know the names of boys who did that to him, he said “I can’t tell you, they’ve warned me”.
My friend’s husband “the principal of the school” called the boy to his office and tried to know from him who the boys were, but the boy told him nothing. He didn’t give up and started watching the boy. The boy was very quiet and had no friends. In the break time he finds a place to sit and watch silently.
One day the math teacher came to the principal’s office with lots of bruises on his face and body. He told him that when he was in the same class he suddenly found the boy stuck to the wall screaming and rising his feet up the floor as if somebody was lifting him. Then he felt on the floor and his eyes were opened wide and full of tears. The teacher tried to know what’s happening to the boy; the boy whispered to the teacher “It’s Fayez and Nabil”. The teacher knew it’s something paranormal because nobody in this class was called Fayez or Nabil. He went to the admin and asked for the name lists of all students in the school. He went through all the names of all registered students but he didn't find the 2 names between them. He went home clueless but kept thinking all the day. Finally he decided to check the names of all the previous years' students.
Teacher put it on himself
ewThe teacher continued searching in school's old documents and didn't stop till he reached 1959 file. He read about a bad accident occurred that year. Someone attacked the school and he dramatically kidnapped 2 twin boys and asked for a ransom. The parents couldn't bring him money at the time he determined. He began torturing the kids till they died. After their death, it's said that the lights were lighted at night and abnormal sounds were heard.
The teacher went home that day scared and wanted to help the boy but didn't know how. He searched the Internet for something helps with paranormal phenomena. As he was searching the Internet, the light went off and he couldn't see anything in the dark. Suddenly he saw 2 boys in grey school uniform and one of them was putting on broken glasses and they were looking vigorously at him. Their faces disappeared again then he found himself beaten violently until he got fainted.
Next morning he found himself in bed and everything around him was fixed. He asked his family how they have fixed the light problem the day before. He knew from them that there was nothing; he was the only one in trouble that night. He thought it was just a nightmare. He had his breakfast and went to school. When he arrived to school he asked the boy about the boys that always beat him and how do they look like. The boy described the two boys that visited the teacher the night before, especially the one with broken glasses and angry look. The teacher became certain of what he saw the night before.
That night he had the same experience again as the previous night. The two boys visited him and did the same deeds. He became in trouble, he was just sitting in his room every night waiting for the terrible destiny. The teacher has noticed that the boy at school became normal; no screams, no fear and even he started to play with his classmates in the break time.The boys came to him one night and it was one of the most horrible nights. He found him self stuck to the wall and felt something very strong pressing him to the wall. He reached the point before being burst then suddenly all the forces disappeared and he was dropped on the floor unconcious. Next morning he hurried to the principal office and asked Clair’s husband for help. He told him the whole story. At night the teacher went home after a long walk and waited for the boys to come and was thinking of what they might do to him that night. Unexpectedly, nobody came and he never saw them again. One night, Clair and her husband were sleeping; suddenly Clair woke up at a very loud scream. It was her husband who was shouting for help but she couldn't do anything for him. He saw the same faces and was beaten by the same boys too. He couldn't tell Clair anything as they have asked him not to do. Clair was very frightened and insisted to know what was happening to her husband, but later she wished if she has never asked.
One day, Clair's husband went to school exhausted from what happens at home every night. He met the math teacher and asked him about the boys that come to him at night. The teacher told him that they've stopped visiting him.
It was like a mantra which does not erase but transferred to another person. Now everybody is fine except for my friend Claire and .......................
