Overhead bridges look relatively peaceful during the day, albeit the sweaty climb up the steps that never seem to end. But at night, it’s a different kind of peace. It’s serene, almost too quiet.
If you live in the east, you’ll have known this extremely infamous overhead bridge: the one that connects Simei to Tampines above PIE.
There have been various sightings there, from the usual white figures that could be imaginary to this one encounter that could well be the mother of all paranormal encounters, because just thinking about it makes my hair stand.
Once, a guy was walking there at 2:00 a.m. He was unaware of its infamous location and just walked as per usual until he sensed the surrounding becoming increasingly cold. Realising that something was wrong, he increased his pace and that was when he saw it: a white figure with long hair at the end of the bridge, motionless.
He turned back immediately, but what was at the end of the steps going down was even worse: it was yet another completely white figure with long black hair, this time going up the stairs extremely slowly, head down. He wheeled and saw that the initial white figure at the end was gone.
Maybe it’s my imagination, he thought and proceeded to take quick steps forward. But then he heard something—on the top of the bridge, there was a distant sound of nails scratching, and also a faint female laughter.
It seemed to be coming from his front—above the bridge. And it got louder and louder as he moved forward. So, that was it: behind him was a white figure and in front of him, another possible ghost on the top of the bridge.
According to what was mentioned, he panicked and rushed forward. When the sounds of the nails scratching and laughter became unbearable loud, he yelled out loud and was out of the bridge within seconds.
Later, he came to realise that usually, the sightings were of two white figures standing side-by-side. That was the first time that the ghosts had apparently approached someone.
