My girlfriend and I moved to an apartment in Calamba. It was a two-storey building and our apartment was on the rooftop. In the first few weeks of our stay there, I began to experience strange events. There were several times where I would hear a man whistling a merry tune and on some occasions I hear people conversing in the middle of the afternoon.
I didn't pay attention to it at first, but as days pass, I decided to tell my girlfriend about it. To my surprise, she too had the same experiences but was hesitant to tell me as well. She said she would sometimes catch a glimpse of someone rushing to the door.
One time, her elder sister came to visit us. The spooky thing was that on her first day of staying with us, she said that she can sense something in the house, not something to be afraid of because it is in fact guarding the house. We were shocked to hear these things from her because we haven't yet told her about the odd things that happened to us.
Things turn for the worse when we started to hear scratching, something that sounded like it is crawling or walking on our roof. Sometimes, we would hear thuds.
I already have hints that it's an aswang. Being protective of my girlfriend, I was so angry that I would curse at it whenever I would hear these sounds.
I got 2 handguns with me (a .38 and .45), a samurai and a number of knives because I was fond of collecting these stuff. When I hear the strange sounds on the roof, I would arm myself and get out of the house. I would throw stones on our roof and ready to shoot anything that may come out of the shadows.
One night, I heard my spitz dog crying in the middle of the night. I tied him at the backdoor at that time. When I realized that the thing is out there again, I slowly approached the door. I heard a strange noise but I can't pinpoint where it is coming from. It sounded something like "Kaaaak! Kaaak." I was told that the aswang sounds afar when it is near you.
My dog was really scared with her body pressed against the backdoor crying. I was waiting for the right moment to blow this aswang away. When I click on the hammer of my gun, the sound suddenly stopped. I let my dog inside the house to be safe and then returned to bed.
In just minutes later, we heard the rattling on our roof again. It was past 12 midnight. I was pissed and took my gun again and went outside. I cursed and cursed and nothing seems to be there on the roof. We decided to get some garlic and salt and throw them on the roof and around the house. We had some garlic tied to our doors and some on our windows. The strange rattling sounds stopped for several months.
Then on one moonlit evening, we were outside enjoying a conversation when my girlfriend pointed at something flying. It has a brown color and it was huge (like the size of a dog I think). We can't make anything out of it, but we are sure it's not any kind of bird. It was about 100 meters away from us and flying slowly fortunately not on our direction. We ran inside the house and locked the doors.
Today, I sleep with my guns and knives beside me.
