This incident happened to my friend Patrick, who went for a business trip in SG. It happened many years back and he could not remember the name of the hotel now. This is the regular company corporate hotel and whenever he visits SG, he stayed at this hotel. All the rooms in this hotel is quite old and not in a perfect condition.
One particular trip, Patrick checked into a room. This hotel room has the usual room layout, where the wardrobe is just near the entrance opposite the bathroom. He did not feel uneasy and it was just another normal routine for him. That night, while Patrick was about to get to sleep, there was a soft knocking which seems like coming from the room corridor. The knocking became louder gradually but he did not suspect anything because he knew there were people in the next room as he could hear voices coming from the other room. He ignored the knock and slept on the first night.
On the second night, the same thing happened. He could hear soft knock coming from the corridor. The knocks become more intensified and it was like someone was banging on the door of the wardrobe. Patrick got very agitated as he could not sleep due to the noise. At this time, Patrick was quite sure that the knock is coming from inside the wardrobe… it sounded like someone was knocking from inside! Patrick walked to the wardrobe and opened the wardrobe door. He starred at the wardrobe, closed the door and went back to sleep. The noise was gone! No more knocking. He wasn’t afraid at that time because it didn’t cross his mind that it may be ‘something’ inside. He thought that the noise came from the next room.
It may really be some spirit inside the wardrobe, wanting to get out. So it just knocked and after Patrick opened the door, it came out and therefore, stopped knocking.
What do you think?
