The Fare of Death: A Spooky Ride Through the Haunted Woods

When the Dead Won't Rest: A Taxi Driver's Encounter with a Vengeful Ghost

By Haridas DPublished 6 months ago 5 min read

John was a taxi driver who worked the night shift. He was used to driving alone in the dark, but one night, something strange happened.

As he was driving down a deserted road, he saw a woman in a white dress waving for him to stop. He pulled over and asked if she needed a ride.

The woman got into the car, but when he turned to ask her where she wanted to go, she was gone. John was startled but thought it must have been his imagination.

A few minutes later, the woman reappeared in the backseat of the car. This time, John could see her more clearly, and he realized that she was a ghost.

He tried to ignore her and keep driving, but she kept appearing and disappearing, making eerie noises. John was terrified and didn't know what to do.

Finally, he pulled over and ran out of the car, leaving it on the side of the road. He never went back to retrieve it and quit his job as a taxi driver.

To this day, people say that if you drive down that same road at night, you can still see the abandoned taxi with the ghostly woman in the backseat.




One night, a few months after John's encounter with the ghost, a young woman named Lily booked a taxi on the same road. She needed a ride back home after a long day at work.

As she waited for the taxi to arrive, she noticed an abandoned car on the side of the road. She didn't think much of it and assumed that it was just a broken-down vehicle.

A few minutes later, the taxi arrived, and Lily got into the backseat. She noticed that the driver seemed nervous, and she asked if everything was okay. He hesitated before telling her about his encounter with the ghost on the same road.

Lily was skeptical but tried to reassure the driver. However, as they continued driving, strange things began to happen. The radio turned on by itself, and the windows began to fog up, even though it wasn't cold outside.

Suddenly, the ghostly woman appeared in the backseat, and Lily screamed. The driver slammed on the brakes, and they both got out of the car, running as fast as they could.

From that day on, Lily never booked a taxi on that road again. She couldn't shake off the feeling that the ghost was still there, waiting for its next victim.



Days passed, but Lily couldn't shake off the feeling of unease that the encounter had left her with. She decided to do some research on the road and the ghostly woman that John had encountered.

As she dug deeper, she found out that the woman was a bride who had died on her wedding day in a car accident on that very same road. Her spirit was said to haunt the area, looking for a ride to her wedding.

Lily couldn't help but feel sorry for the ghostly woman and wondered if there was anything she could do to help her find peace. She decided to visit the spot where the accident had occurred, hoping to find some closure.

As she reached the spot, she saw the ghostly figure of the woman once again. This time, she felt a sense of calm wash over her, and she knew what she had to do.

Lily got back into the abandoned taxi and drove down the road, stopping at the exact spot where the accident had taken place. She got out of the car and said a prayer for the bride, hoping that it would bring her peace.

As she got back into the car, she saw the ghostly figure of the bride for one last time. This time, she smiled, and Lily knew that she had finally found peace.

From that day on, Lily never saw the ghostly woman again, but she knew that her spirit was finally at rest. She continued to work and travel the same road, but she did it with a newfound sense of calm and respect for the spirits that may still haunt it.

As the years passed, Lily became known among the locals as the one who had brought peace to the ghostly woman. People would stop her and ask for advice on how to deal with similar situations.

Lily found herself becoming more interested in paranormal activities and began researching and studying about ghosts and spirits. She attended paranormal investigation classes and workshops, and soon she became an expert on the subject.

She started a paranormal investigation group and helped people who were experiencing supernatural activities in their homes or workplaces. Her group became very popular, and they even appeared on television shows.

Lily had found her calling and was finally able to help people who were scared and didn't know what to do.

One day, while investigating an old abandoned house, Lily heard a voice calling out her name. She turned around and saw the ghostly woman in the white dress standing behind her.

The woman smiled and thanked Lily for bringing her peace. She then disappeared, and Lily knew that it was time for her to move on to her next mission.

From that day on, Lily continued to help people deal with paranormal activities, but she knew that the ghostly woman would always hold a special place in her heart.
