My family and I had been planning a trip to Big Bear Mountain. As we got out of the car and inside the big beautiful cabin my mom and I heard heavy footsteps upstairs. We both thought our minds were playing tricks on us so we kept it to ourselves and decided to keep quiet and enjoy the luxurious cabin.
Later on, when the sun was almost setting, my friend Nena asked me to go color with her, I said, “Ya why not!” As we went upstairs into one of the rooms we set up our colors and began coloring. As we were coloring the door mysteriously began moving left to right, slowly, we both looked at each other puzzled. I guess we both thought the same thing and that was,”Do you see that?” Although I took action and I wasn’t just going to sit there and wait until the door started moving more so I said, “Nena why don’t you check the window and I’ll check the heater right on the corner of the door, to maybe find out what’s causing the door to move!” She said, “Ok.”
Although as I looked at the door again it was moving a little faster. We looked at each other petrified because nothing was on nor was the window open! The door was almost closing although I quickly grabbed the door, right after, we both crumbled downstairs. Everybody looked at us weird, I soon found out that my face was as white as toilet paper.
We told my dad what had just happened while everybody listened too. My dad wasn’t scared at all, he ended up saying, “Oh cool there’s ghosts upstairs I am going to go check them out!” I don’t know why the first thing he checked was his wallet, but he ended up missing 100 dollars, it was so strange because he had just seen them earlier. That’s when everything began.
My dad began telling scary stories and his friend, Mickey too. We had also just finished watching a scary movie.That made it worse. Everybody was very scared, we even had a plastic cross on the last step of the stairs. It was very late and everyone was sleeping downstairs instead of sleeping in the comfy beds with a TV and everything, we slept all uncomfortable and all close together. One of my cousins, Zelene had the guts to go sleep upstairs although it was because her back was killing her. She literally only spent five minutes and she came running with total scaredness downstairs.
The steps that we heard when we barely got there were getting louder by the second. Although the day came when we had to leave, we got our stuff and went home very happy. People say that the cabins are built right on top of a cemetery, so maybe that’s why strange things happen, who knows!
