One night my mom and I and some relatives were discussing all the crazy ghost stories we’ve heard from around the Samoan way – and it’s not just a few. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think all Samoans were haunted from birth. Spooky paranormal things just seem to happen to us all the time.
I expressed about as much in our conversation, and my mom immediately disagreed. “No!” she insisted. “I promise I have never experienced anything like that in my life!’ And then in the same breath she goes, ‘Except for when I saw a demon get forced out of my auntie’s body, blasting all the windows and doors open as it left the room… but it’s never EVER happened to me, ever! Except for this one time in Tutuila, with the chicken…”
Okayyyyyy, strange lady.
She proceeded to tell us her story.
