Piggyback

Once there was a family of four, the father, the mother, the son and the daughter. The father and the mother had grown cold to each other in recent years and were arguing all the time. In spite of that, the family planned to go on a holiday. But the day before the holiday began the couple had a fierce fallout again. The father this time got out of control and murdered the mother. The next morning the father left home for the holiday with the children as if nothing had happened. After some sight-seeing the three of them sat down to rest. Then the son looked quizzically at his father and asked; “Daddy, why have you been carrying Mommy piggyback all morning?”

Hey Saya,

I really don't get this one. Did the 'mom's corpse come alive and latch itself onto his back? Or did the ghost of the 'mom' get on the 'dad's back to make him guilty?

This reminds me of the movie 'Shutter'.

Actually, after realising that this was under the "apparition" section, I found myself confused as well. If it was the Dad carrying the mother's dead body around, it would be in the "cryptic" section wouldn't it?

Hi!

I guess it's like in said movie, "Shutter". The revengeful ghost of the mother is sitting on the father's back to haunt him, and he cannot see it, but the children can, because children can see such things more clearly. Pretty scary...

Best wishes, Doc S.

To the people who don't understand; children are more likely to see a ghost then adults. no he was not carrying her dead body around that was her ghost.

Suddenly, I have the shudders. There are stories in my country too, about the vengeful spirit riding piggyback on it's tormentor/tormented victim. Next time I have a back ache, will you give me some advice?

Easy. The father killed this DAUGHTER and took his son and wife on holiday.

When I first read this I saw is more as an expression of the guilt the Father was feeling.

first thing to come to my mind was shutters too. damn i hate the last scene when you see the ghost on his back reflected in the glassdoor. gave me nightmares for weeks.

this reminds me of film shutter in which the ghost of megumi clings on the body of ben shaw all the time just like piggyback

In asian folklore pertaining to spirits i heard that it is believed that spirits haunting individuals often piggyback or are sitting ontop of their shoulders. This is why the individual who is haunted often feels weighted down or have pains in their back or shoulders. And as others have explained it is also believed that children and animals are more attuned to the spirit world and can see these things much more clearly.
