Doppelganger by the Acasia Tree
What you are about to read is a true story my brother told me. It is about a Doppelganger he saw while he was showering in our outdoor shower room when he was still a child.
Let me first tell you what a Doppelganger is. Doppelganger is a paranormal double of a person. It is believed that when one sees his double, it brings a death omen. And when a friend or a relative sees someone’s double, it will bring bad luck.
Many years ago when were still living somewhere in Las Piñas City, we lived in an apartment where there is an outdoor shower aside from the one inside. One dawn, my brother was taking a shower in that said outdoor shower room. He left the door open despite the cold. From inside, he could see the lone Acasia Tree standing tall in a vacant corner. As he continued on his shower, he saw someone walking from our apartment’s door towards the Acasia Tree. When he turned his face, it was me he saw. “Ate,” he called out. Despite his loud voice, I didn’t look his way and continued walking towards the Acasia Tree where he saw me disappear. He was surprised and a little frightened but he shrugged it, thinking that it was just a figment of his imagination. When he stepped into the apartment, he asked me if I happen to go to the Acasia Tree but I replied that I didn’t. After that, he told me what he saw and by then, we concluded that it was the doing of a Doppelganger. After all, it was not the first time that we experienced something paranormal in that apartment.
After reading this, do you think that what my brother saw is a real Doppelganger? Do you think Doppelgangers are real? Do you by chance, happen to have an encounter with a Doppelganger?
A/N: Ate means big sister in tagalog.
