One chilly winter night, I saw a woman in a black dress standing beside my bed. When I looked at her, she started cursing me, calling names at me, and telling me that she will never let me live in peace.
I had lost my mind as I was having a conversation with a ghost which I realized later. She suddenly started pulling me down my bed and started attacking me. And when I called out for help, she disappeared. It took me quite a long time to get back to normal life.
