He gets physically violent.
The bus driver kicks you both off the bus, leaving you stranded with the old man. Angry now, you confront the old man, and he has the audacity to say that he saved your life. How? you ask.
This is the urban legend Bus 302 from China. Also called the Midnight Bus.
It has various versions, but in all of them the bus is doomed.
The young man learns from the old man that the passengers that got on the bus had no feet. They were spirits. The young man then learns that the bus had disappeared just after midnight and was never found again.
In a similar version, it was drunk man and an old man with all the other passengers being spirits. The last version I found, had a female bus driver, three nasty robbers, and a poor guy who couldn't fight to save the woman's virtue. The bus on this one is driven off a cliff.
Chinese ghosts are believed to flow when they walk, and that their heels don't touch the ground. So, they have 'no feet'.
ghA slight movement wakes you. The small shift of bedding closer to your face. You think that it was only whimsy and you close your eyes to go back to sleep. Then you feel it again. The bedding is moving on its own.
You try to escape but it's no use. You are thrown out of bed and crash to the floor. Then, the blanket wraps around your neck to strangle you.
This, my friends, is the Boroboro-ton, which basically translates to tattered futon from the Japanese.
It appeared in 1781 in the Hyakki Tsurezure Bukuro, which was one of the books in the Gazu Hyakki Yagyō. This set of books featured spirits, ghosts, monsters, and beasts in folklore, art, and literature.
It is a Tsukumogami (artifact spirit). Usually these yokai are objects that have been possessed by ghosts or spirits, or have been in use for 100 years. It is believed by many that the object will then receive a soul. They then will look pristine despite its age.
If they feel ignored or neglected, that's when they will come alive and become monsters.
So, next time you wake up with the blankets wrapped tightly around you suffocatingly . . . Beware! It might not be your imagination. They really might be out to kill you!
