Old Woman – Submitted by Rachael
I have had many encounters with the Paranormal, but I have decided to tell you the story of what happened to my brother about 3 months ago.
My fathers house is split into sections with certain doors lock to make it safer for everyone at night, for instance the Bedrooms and bathroom have a door between the living room and kitchen etc that is locked at night so no one can get to us.
Anyway, one night we was all asleep, mine and my brothers bedroom is downstairs, our sisters and dads upstairs. I am a light sleeper and everytime my brother wakes up I normaly hear him walk past the corridor and I wake up, if any one walks past my door I wake up, and one night I heard my brother running to my fathers & Step-mums room. I didn’t think much else about that night, I couldn’t go to sleep for ages as I was a bit creep out but I finally managed to drift off.
The next morning me and his mum (my step mum was talking) and she told me that last night, my little brother had gone to her saying there was an old woman in the middle of his room talking to him, and she wouldn’t shut up and he couldn’t go to sleep. So he came running to his mum and asked to sleep in their bed.
You probably think nothing of this story but the fact that, no one can get to our room as the door is ALWAYS lock at night that separates the bedrooms from the rest of the house, I WOULD of heard someone walk past my door and ALSO before my dad bought the house an old woman owned it, she died and my father got the house.
Just makes you think…my brothers bedroom used to be mine and I never liked that room at night, there’s something about it…that’s strange…oh well hope yo enjoyed my story!
ALL TRUE EVENTS!!
Ghost House – Submitted by Laura
There was this house my mum and i used to live in. It was built in 1929 so it had a lot of history, the usual stuff, different people over the years. When we moved in there was what we thought was the usual noises you get used to in a new place, and little things that would happen that, you know, you just don’t think about too much ’cause you are too busy settling in. It started with the cupboard doors opening wide and being left that way. Our fridge used to make dogy humming noises and we’d hear a sound in the night thinking that was it. Then the talking, low voices, nothing violent. Then it escalated. We woke up one morning and every cupboard door in the kitchen was wide open. Every one. Mum and i have both woken up on separate occasions and gone into the kitchen for water and the kettle has been turned on. Our kettle needs to be pressed FIRMLY down on the button, it’s not automatic or anything. Then we got home one evening to hear two old ladies whispering quietly to each other. We thought we’d left the radio on. Both of us. We asked the each other twice if either of us could turn it off before going to check. The radio takes two switches to get from CD mode to radio. It was off. To those of us who haven’t had hauntings before this is probably a bit weird, but we liked our ghosts. The old ladies stayed until we left, and the cheeky spirit who used to play kitchen pranks on us would come and go as it pleased. Make off that what you will…
Shop Keeper Ghost – Submitted by SJ
Your Story: One summers day about 15 years ago, I popped into a small grocery store to get an ice cream.
There was an “L” shaped counter in front and to the right of me, and as I opened my purse to pay for my ice cream, I glanced up and saw an old lady standing behind the counter. She smiled at me, and I apologised for taking so long trying to locate the correct change. When I glanced up again she was gone.
I suddenly heard someone ask “Can I help you?” and glanced to the right handside of the counter, where a younger lady was standing behind a till.
I was taken by surprise, and asked where the old lady had gone to who was going to serve me? The lady behind the till laughed and then explained that I had just seen the ghost of the previous owner of the shop who had passed away.
By all accounts she liked to drop in from time to time and keep an eye on her business!
