Her excellence in the field came along with Minda Mora’s fascination with the performing arts. However, fate is truly envious of geniuses. So, one night, she stayed late in school for a stage rehearsal, and unfortunately, she never came home.

According to some oral accounts, Minda Mora was rumored to have been raped and killed by the school’s security guards in the theater center she was in. However, some narratives say that different individuals murdered her.

Her cruel fate and love for performing arts tied her resentment and wrath to the school’s cultural arts center. Apparently, when a person or a group of people interrupts an inexperienced performer, the ghost of Minda Mora will allegedly do something bad to them days after the performance.

Since then, brash comments, interruptions, and clamors during performances in the school’s cultural centers were never heard of again.

— Horror stories have become integral to Filipino culture since the olden days. Parents even use some of them to instill discipline in their children, while some historical hearsays state that the Spaniards used them to scare the natives so they could do their bidding when the natives hid in their homes after being scared by these stories.
