A compilation of three winning entries to a Halloween scary story contest organised by an American magazine, Flagpole. Writers had to include 10 of the words and phrases pre-determined by the organisers.
Old Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky, is the third-largest National Preservation District in the United States and the largest Victorian-era neighborhood in the country. Beneath the balconies and terraces of the district’s Gothic, Queen Anne, and Beaux Arts mansions, current residents trade riveting stories about their historic homes. Many of these tales defy rational explanation.
This short story was relayed to British administrator J. E. Nathan back in the early 1900s by a Negeri Sembilan resident who later lived in Ulu Pahang. This story was told in Malay and subsequently translated into English by Nathan.
Those who experienced a violent death before they even managed to get married return as ghosts, pretas, and their kin suffer from their absence, but still fear the pretas and try to appease them by all available means.
