Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a pedicab driver who was busier than a one-armed juggler. However, one chilly night, the poor guy couldn't snag a single passenger, and he was as annoyed as a mosquito in a room full of buzzing flies. Finally, the pedicab driver decided to call it a day and head home.

But, lo and behold, on his way back, a mysterious woman with luscious, long hair appeared out of nowhere and hailed his pedicab. "Hot dog! A passenger!" thought the pedicab driver, as he eagerly asked her, "Where to, ma'am?" She replied, "Just drive around, sir. I'll let you know when to stop." The driver felt a bit uneasy but he didn't want to lose a customer.

As the journey progressed, the woman directed him to a graveyard. Suddenly, she told the pedicab driver to stop, saying "Stop here." When the man looked at her legs, he saw that they were floating above the ground, and he let out a blood-curdling scream, "Holy guacamole! It's Kuntilanak!"

The next night, the terrified pedicab driver brought a Kyai and said, "Pak Kyai, I saw Kunti here." Pak Kyai, with a twinkle in his eye, replied, "So, you saw her right here?" Not long after that, the Kuntilanak appeared, and Pak Kyai went straight to her like a moth to a flame. The pedicab driver said, "It seems that Pak Kyai is communicating with the Kuntilanak." Afterward, Pak Kyai said to the pedicab driver, "She just wanted to ask you for help." The pedicab driver replied, "Sure, Pak! She asked me for help, so what should I do?" Pak Kyai said, "You have to find what was lost near the grave yesterday." The pedicab driver replied, "Roger that, Pak!"

The pedicab driver raced to the cemetery, determined to lay his hands on the lost item. "This place is spookier than a haunted house!" he murmured to himself. "But I must find those hands pronto, or Kuntilanak will haunt me forever!" After a few minutes of searching, he finally laid his hands on the lost item and rushed back to Pak Kyai.

When he arrived, Pak Kyai bellowed, "Bury them immediately!" The pedicab driver got to work and buried the hands as quickly as possible. Suddenly, the Kuntilanak appeared and said, "Thank you, pedicab driver!" Then, in the blink of an eye, the Kuntilanak vanished into thin air. Since that incident, the pedicab driver had more passengers than he could handle, and he never had to worry about the Kuntilanak again.

Moral of the story: Always help those in need, even if it means facing your worst fears.
