  • Thanks to Brandy Whitworth for submitting this story

    I had a friend that lived on a farm out in the country. When I was in early grade school, I used to spend the night with her quite frequently. We would spend some of the time in the play-room in the basement. This room was fairly large. Off to one side was an area where the water heater was positioned along with a variety of cabinets and shelves that held more toys. Facing this area was a small children’s table where we would draw and play. I can remember the feeling that I had EVERY time I was in this room was one of absolute terror. I never sat at the table with my back to the water heater because I always felt as if something was back there. If my friend would leave the room or go upstairs, I would become terrified and run after her…I NEVER could be there alone!! The feeling that I had about this room, the water heater area in particular, is difficult to explain, ” terrified” isn’t strong enough!!

    Years later, when we were in high school, a bunch of us got to talking about ghosts. The girl I used to play with started talking about how her house was haunted and that every once in a while they would hear a baby cry (she was the youngest so there were no babies in the house). According to the story, there was a baby that died whose crib was by the water heater!! Needless to say, I freaked. I had never told this girl about the feeling I had when I was in her basement or about the water heater area in particular. To this day, I completely believe that there really was something back there–the crying baby!!!

    …………….After hearing the “baby crying” story, I found out from my mother (who was good friends with her mother and the owners prior to them) that there had been other strange occurrences in the house. Joyce (her mother) said that one night she was sitting in a chair reading and all of a sudden it got very cold and she could feel someone walk past her. She looked up expecting to see her husband or one of the kids but there was no one there. Additionally, they had a large dog named “Cuttie”. He would never go downstairs by himself (just like me!) but he would stand at the top and whine profusely like there was someone/something down there. The previous owners had witnessed the bathtub faucet turning and the water come on by itself on several occassions!!!!!

    Since then, they have remodeled the house. Wheter for aesthetic reasons or to get rid of their ghosts, I’m not sure. I’m also not positive whether, since the changes, their “baby” has cried………

    The following are even more Scarier :

    4. Seems like a tale someone would tell friends. I never experienced ghost or any other happenings…oh no, wait. yeah i have. When i was really little. But never mind that. Things like this rly could happen? I never experienced things like THAT, tho. I thought i saw a ghost once. This story is fansinating. I believe that things like these are fake. My great-grandmom lived to be 105 but never saw any paranormal crap ever. I dont know tho. YOu could be telling the truth is. IF it’s fake, tell me where you heard it…seems like a rly cr8atiive story.
