There are lots of mysteries surrounding the old Nanan Bridge in The Philippines. The road is pitch-black at night. The street lights don’t seem to function in that area. The homeowners tried to fix the problem and change the lamps over and over, but the lights just flicker and would eventually turn off. The locals gave up afterwards and left the place as it is when one of the repairmen got electrocuted and died.
It was around two in the morning when Jack dropped off his last passenger to a nearby town. His shift was finally over.
He decided to take a shortcut as he was on the verge of falling asleep while driving. He took the route to Nanan Bridge. He heard a lot of ghost stories about that place, but he doesn’t believe any of them. He was too old for those childish things, so he thought.
When he was crossing the old Nanan Bridge, his car engine suddenly shut off. And out of nowhere, just a few feet away from his car, he noticed a black umbrella drifting gently to the ground. He turned the car on in a rush and without any trouble the engine starts up again.
Frightened, he slowly drove away from the bridge and passed by the area where the umbrella fell, but instead of an umbrella, there stood an old woman in black wearing a veil.
Jack drove as fast as he can without looking back. He swore to never pass by the old Nanan Bridge again.
