I stayed in a hostel while I was working. I used to work in UK shifts, that’s 2pm to 12 am in India. That day I worked an hour extra and came back to hostel by 2am. I changed and wasn’t feeling sleepy and I had a pillar beside my bed. I was leaning on it and had my earphones and listening to songs when the girl who was sleeping in the bed which is opposite to my bed started to move restlessly. I just thought she was having a bad dream. But she kept moving for another 5 mins.

 .
I paid little attention and after 5 mins, she got up from her bed slowly, walked to her cabinet, took the Bible in her hands and hugged it. It was then I got concerned and asked her what happened. She told me something was on top of her, she clearly felt something as if some person who is very strong was on top of her was pressing her into the bed and choking her. She was fighting to get up and was moving her hands up and down to signal me to help and was calling my name. I didn’t hear anything at all. I never put earphones in full volume, yet I heard nothing. She said that entity tried to kill her. She couldn’t breathe or see anything. But then collected her remaining will, got up and took bible in her hands. As and when she touched the Bible, whatever that was holding her, immediately left. She felt an instant grip free and body felt light.
.
I listened to it, (that time I never ever believed ghosts) and told her that “there’s a scientific explanation to this, her bed was in a corner, she felt breathless and a grip on her body Just coz of lack of adequate amount of oxygen”. She replied, “I also hear baby cries in midnights sometimes” I told her “I come back to hostel in midnights, there’s a garbage bin near by, cats always fight with each other for food and some times their cry sounds similar to a baby, I see that everyday and you don’t have to worry bout it”. She had this intense stare into my eyes and replied “you won’t realize until your day comes. Wait for it” .. I just laughed and slept.

This all happened in November. In December, I changed my room from first floor to second because I didn’t get along with other girls, they gave me the room in second floor exactly above the same room I stayed before, and my bed’s position was in the same place where the girl’s bed was, at the corner.
 .
Exactly after a month, on the Same date, same day Friday, same time 2am, I came back to my room, went to bathroom and slept as I was tired. I don’t know how much time later, but I myself felt a very strong existence on my body, giving me the same experience that the girl described. I couldn’t breathe, I seriously thought this was going to kill me. I called out for two girls who were sleeping in our room, I even pushed a steel glass that was on a stool near my bed. They never woke up. I collected all my strength, opened my eyes, and there was a huge God’s picture on the wall beside my bed. I silently prayed help me and screamed “leave me now” and that instant, I felt free… Whatever that was pushing me down and choking me left me within seconds and I felt like floating. Other girls were still sleeping despite I screamed and made noises.
.
I drank water and intended to find out whatever that tried to kill me. I went out, checked toilets, lobby, kitchen and balcony and it was 2.45am and couldn’t find anything. It was all dark, except an eerie yellow light near the toilets. I couldn’t find anything rational.
.
I still don’t know if ghosts do exist, but I don’t argue with believers saying no which I was doing before. All I can say is there’s something out there that you don’t want to mess up with I wanted to tell this to many girls and our hostel warden. But many girls were chickens and I didn’t want to scare them because few of them already feel no so good staying in our hostel. I didn’t want to increase the fear because warden is a good woman and she could loose business. Nothing happened after that until I stayed, however they say one experience is enough to actually change the way we think or presume things.
.
My day had come just like that girl said. Obviously not every time and everywhere you could run out of adequate oxygen, that too exactly a month after, on same date, same day and same time as if someone had previously decided my destiny.
