What I am telling you is a real thing that happened in the winter of 1996.
I was only nineteen years old at the time and had just started working. The company I work for is very famous internationally. It mainly produces women's underwear. 85% of our company's products are exported, so once an order comes in, the employees on the production line have to work overtime day and night to rush the goods. In November, because the order was urgent, the company asked to work overtime for 12 hours, from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m. I also work overtime due to work needs.
We worked overtime for three days in a row. At 11:30 on the fourth day, the supervisor suddenly informed us that only one of the four people on duty could stay, and the others could get off work. We were so happy that we could finally go home early to rest. After cheering, we each packed up our things. I entered the production line and went to greet a friend, but when I turned around I found that they had already left before I could wait. There was a middle-aged man in front of the company's gate, probably coming to pick up his daughter. He came too early. The online staff didn't get off work until twelve o'clock. It was very dark and I couldn't see the road clearly after leaving the company gate. In 1996, the road in front of our company was not repaired. It was still a brick road in the countryside, full of potholes and difficult to walk. It’s even more troublesome when it rains! I rode my bicycle in the dark and moved forward cautiously. There are ordinary small houses in the countryside on the roadside. They are low and look like monsters with their mouths wide open in the middle of the night. They can swallow people up without warning. With a hint of timidity in my heart, I speeded up my journey. In order to strengthen my courage, I sang Meng Tingwei's song: "The shy rose blooms quietly…" The lights of National Highway 204 in the distance made me work harder. .
Ahead is the cement factory building, and you can reach the national highway after crossing another bridge. I'm secretly happy. At this moment, something unforgettable… appeared, and I can never forget it!
At first it was just a vague shadow. I thought it was a tree. As I got closer, I realized that there was no tree at the entrance of the factory. When I got closer, my breathing almost stopped, my mind went blank, my feet were just mechanically exerting force… I saw a person all in white, let's call it a human for now, with a pointed hat on his head. Wearing a white robe, he was kneeling on the ground, his face invisible. That white color is so eye-catching at night. He was holding a small rectangular box in his hand, and a square piece of white cloth in front of him. He held it like this and muttered, but I couldn't hear what he was saying clearly. My instinct told me that what he was holding was an urn. I didn’t know why I thought so. The five seconds passed by him were so long. I started to get scared when I passed him. Is he human? Is it a ghost? Suddenly, an idea flashed through his mind. The father of electrician Wang Er was the director of this factory and had just passed away. Could it be? My hands and feet couldn't control themselves. By this time I was on the national highway. Seeing the passing vehicles keep passing by, I calmed down. What are you afraid of? Anyway, you will be on the road and you will be home in a short time. The lights on the national highway make me feel warmer, ah! go home!
I parked the car and went upstairs, took out my keys and opened the door. My face turned pale in an instant – I forgot to punch in my get off work card! When I first started working, my supervisor repeatedly told me that I must remember to clock in when I get off work, otherwise it would not count as my attendance today! Also considered absenteeism! My head is in turmoil, what should I do? Come back! well! Why are you so unlucky today! But when I think of the "person" just now, I can't help but feel scared. If you don't go, you will be reprimanded tomorrow. Even if you tell them, they won't believe you. Go, alas! Maybe he has left, I can only cheer myself up like this.
Along the way, I was very nervous. After seeing the bridge, I was about to reach the door of the cement factory. I raised my eyes, God! he! he! he! He's still here! My heart rushed over. The moment I passed by him, he suddenly stood up… Ah, my soul was gone. Only my feet were moving, and I continued to push forward. I don't know where the strength came from. I rushed to the company in despair, and the middle-aged man in front of the door looked at me strangely. I think my face must have been deformed at that time. I finished my job but never had the courage to go home. At this time, my colleague who was not off work asked me strangely: "Why are you back again?" I muttered about the night encounter just now, and his face turned pale when he heard it. He asked me if it was true. I said I was lying. What are you doing! I don't even dare to go home now! He made an excuse and left. I understand that he was also afraid! I was afraid that I would ask him to give it to me, but I was not angry with him! Who dares to trust you at this time?
I was wandering in front of the company's gate, and the middle-aged man asked: "Has Wang Xiaoyan gotten off work? I've been waiting for a long time, but she hasn't come out yet. Can you go in and help me look for her?" Wang Xiaoyan is my colleague. She Gone long ago! I suddenly became happy and said to the middle-aged man: "Uncle, she has gone home. You don't have to wait any longer . You can come with me." Then I told him what happened just now. , he didn’t believe it, he said he didn’t see anything when he came. I said that I had seen him twice and I was really scared, otherwise I wouldn’t have stayed here and not left.
On the way back, we didn't see the "person" in white robe again. Uncle Wang said, "Girl, you are being dazzled." I heard his doubts and responded with silence.
When I went to work the next day, my night encounter had spread throughout the company, and many people came to me and asked me if it was true. Someone also mysteriously told me that someone encountered a ghost last night, wearing a white robe… I stared into her eyes and said word for word that person was me! She stood there for a long time before coming back to her senses. In just over an hour, I heard five different versions, and the white robe turned into red. Ha, the legend spreads far and wide! I was sitting at my desk thinking about this, and a quality control officer interrupted me: "I heard that you saw a man in front of the cement factory last night. Is it true?" I said yes. She told me that the dead factory director was her father-in-law, but when she went home and asked about the ghosts encountered during overtime work , the family didn’t pay homage to him late at night last night! Besides, the person I was looking at was dressed like a filial son and grandson. I'm speechless. She asked me again: "Have you seen his face and shadow?" I thought for a moment, and my face turned pale. I didn't see his face, but I really didn't notice his shadow!
According to legend, only ghosts have no shadow!
