My grandmother never gets along well with her mother-in-law. They were always fighting and arguing about everything under the sun. They just couldn't get along.
As the years passed, their relationship remained sour. However, her mother-in-law was getting old and soon passed away after a serious of illness. Not surprisingly, my grandmother was very happy with the fact. She would always tell my mother how peaceful everything would be then.
Well, yes, everything had indeed been peaceful until one night. My grandmother had gone to bed and she had a dream. In her dream, she was sleeping and her mother-in-law was standing right beside the bed. She stared at my grandmother with an evil look, an expression full of anger and hatred, just like she always did when she was still alive.
Then, out of a sudden, she lifted her hand and slapped my grandmother really hard on the face. My grandmother woke up from her dream screaming away. And the strangest thing was that the pain was actually there. She thought she had dreamt the whole episode but the pain on her face was as good as real.
It happened years after my great-grandmother had died, but apparently the hatred for her daughter-in-law never dies. Did she actually came back and slapped my grandmother that night?
