#atozchallenge – N is for Nu Gui, a woman scorned

She seeks vengeance for the wrongs of her life.

Nu gui are the ghosts of women who committed suicide, especially those who were wronged or abused while alive. As ghosts, they are draped in long white or red dresses, with flowing black hair. They take their revenge upon the living, sucking out life essence as they wreak their revenge. They often go after lecherous men, seducing them and then leaving their corpses behind. Very little esle is known about them – perhaps because few have survived their scorn!

    These women should be best avoided if one can.

    How cool that you’re featuring evil spirits for A to Z. The Nu Gui seem very creepy, and the long white dresses and dark hair remind me of that chick from The Ring. *shiver*

    Hope you’re having fun with the A to Z challenge,
    Jocelyn

    She reminds me of the entity in The Grudge.
