100 Ghost Stories Counting Down To Halloween! 49 Nights Left! "Tabby"

It was a shock to see the eleven-year-old girl at their front door sitting on a hello kitty bicycle. She wore pigtails in her hair and sported a heavily glittered hello kitty t-shirt with a matching plaid skirt, shoes and socks. The only thing that threw off the ensemble was the Badtz Maru backpack, it was strangely out of place in contrast to the other bright colors.

“I’m Tabby Kahana,” the little girl introduced herself as she put out her kickstand and got off her bike.

“I’m Mark,” the husband replied. “This is my wife, Kendra, thanks for coming on such short notice,”

“Show me to the room please, we don’t have much time,” Tabby said.

Mark and Kendra led the girl up the carpeted stairs and took a right turn down a long carpeted hallway that led to a large master bedroom. In the middle of the room was a large cage with a Labrador retriever sitting in it.

Kendra suddenly became overwhelmed and buried her face in her husband’s shirt.

“You can see how this has upset us, we love Kolea so much. We can’t have kids so Kolea is our baby it’s tough to see her this way,” Mark said as he fought to control his emotions. “We think it’s an Inu-Gami, a Japanese dog demon,”

“That would explain why Kolea suddenly changed and became vicious,” Kendra said. “Please help him, he’s our baby,”

“You know the ritual for getting rid of an Inu-Gami right? I mean, that’s why you came so highly recommended,” Mark said.

In one swift motion, Tabby zipped open the top of her Batdz Maru backpack and reached inside and removed two small items. It happened so quickly that the couple didn’t realize what was actually going on,

“Exocrzimus you omnis immudus,” Tabby held a rosary wrapped around her right hand, in her left she held a large vile of holy water while she prayed in Latin.

“NO!” The couple screamed at the top of their lungs, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!”

“Omnis Satanica Potestas,” she continued.


“Omnis incursio, infernalis adversarii,” she concluded.

Mark and Kendra fell to the floor; their bodies convulsed and contorted in grotesque positions before a tremendous wind swept through the room. It formed a cyclone above the couple and slowly spun around their bodies and then lifted to the ceiling where it disappeared altogether.

Mark and Kendra were disoriented for a second before they began to have the dry heaves. Tabby removed two bottles of water from the side pocket of her backpack and splashed it all over the couple before she offered it to them to drink.

“Sorry, just had to be sure. You never know,”

“What happened?” Mark asked.

“When you called me you said that your Lab was acting strangely but you never said how. When I get here I find it unusual that the two of you are suddenly certain that an Inu-Gami is possessing your dog? These things are sent as curses to harm human beings, not other animals. That’s when I knew it was the two of you who were possessed, not your pet,” Tabby said.

“We don’t know how to thank you,” Mark began. “Can we give you some money or if you wanna stay for lunch...”

“Nah,” Tabby smiled. “I’m good. I gotta get going, you guys take care,”


Tabby rode her bicycle toward the end of the block and let the scenario play itself out in her mind again. Everything pointed to the situation being a trap; but how? And by whom?
