We used to have a maid from Indonesia and her name is Wotee.

One night it was probably around 2:00 a.m. everyone was sleeping.

Suddenly my brother and I heard my maid weeping.

She was crying softly.

We thought she probably missed her family in Indonesia so we just ignored her and went back to sleep.

The next day at the same time around 2:00 a.m. she was weeping again.

This went on and on for 3 months.

We told our parents about it and everyone had the same thought.

She probably missed her family back home.

One night at 9:00 p.m. my brothers and I were chilling in the living room.

My maid was in the kitchen washing dishes.

My dad was fixing the kitchen light and suddenly my dad saw a shadow running around in the storage room.

My dad thought it was one of us playing around so my dad called out to my brother - "Can you please get the light bulb from the drawer?"

But no one answered.

Then my dad shouted - "Hey, can someone help me out and get the light bulb for me?"

Both of us ran towards my dad from the living room which is on the opposite side of the storage room.

My dad then got confused and asked us why we came from the living room.

We got goose bumps and walked into the storage room.

We switched the lights on and saw that there was no one there.

However, we saw the maid shaking.

She looked at us then started weeping again.

My dad asked - "Who was that and why are you weeping?"

My maid then explained that it was her guardian from Indonesia.

My dad asked her to call him out and he was going to call the police.

But my maid stated that it was not a human but a spirit that was summoned to protector her.

After that, my dad brought us to a nearby hotel for the night and hired a spiritual hunter to chase the spirit away.

Following that incident, we no longer heard the maid weeping and she was sent back to Indonesia 3 days after the incident.
