I actually have some ghost stories from vietnam, as retold by my elders. Ill retell you with one. This is almost like a urban legend ghost story, but
it goes that. A friend of my aunt, we will call him khoa, who use to love gambling and would spend late nights gambling and coming home late. One
late night, coming home from gambling den, khoa was walking home alone, it was dark. There was barely any moonlight out that night, and if you ever
been to rural country areas. Like this place was, there basically is no street light outside. So it was pretty dark. There was just enough light for
khoa to barely see the road a few feet ahead of him. As khoa stumbled his way home in the darkness on a dirt rural road, he spots a dark figure
standing by a Banana Tree. The figure by the tree calls out and asks "Hey, Do you have a light for my cigarette?"
Khoa fumbles in his pocket to pull out his lighter, and approachs the man to help light up his cigarette. It being very dark, it was a bit hard to
make out what the man looked like as he was standing under the shade of the banna tree out of the dimlight moonlight. As Khoa sparked the lighter, and
finally got a look at the man standing under the tree. He realize the man's face was of a skeleton. Scared and Startled by what he seen, he drops the
lighter and takes off running.
Khoa, turns around and see the man right on his heels still chasing him, gaining speed on him.
Now Khoa, wasn't going to let this spirit get him, so he remembers an old wise tale that says evil spirits have a hard time moving diagonally. Khoa
starts to zig zag as he runs toward his home, he turns around again and the man is slowing down. Khoa finally makes it safetly home.
Moral of the story, don't go gambling and walking home late at night in rural area, cuz you don't know who or what you might bump into in the night.
Plus when getting chased by evil spirit, run zig zag.
