It was September of 1990 and some friends of mine were taking weekend holiday and asked me to house sit for them. Their apartment was a gorgeous grey stone building on Sacramento Boulevard in the Logan Square Neighborhood in Chicago.
I�d been there many times before, but this particular time something felt different from the moment I stepped into the foyer. I was with another person, a friend of mine at the time, and as we got ourselves situated we decided to order pizza. Before the pizza arrived I decided to take a shower in the master bathroom. While I was showering it felt like someone was in the shower stall with me� watching me. I couldn�t see them but I knew someone was there! A feeling of uneasiness came over me and my heart started pounded in my chest. I hurried as fast as I could to dry off. I put on my sweet pants and t-shirt and ran out of the bathroom.
I told my friend what I was feeling but he just laughed it off. He said the apartment was big and usually full of people laughing and having a good time and now it felt empty. It did seem like a logical explanation as to why I was feeling a little spooked, but I couldn�t shake the feeling that someone or something was there watching and waiting.
He then went on to take a shower and as he did I sat on the edge of the bed in the master bedroom waiting for him to finish. The whole time I kept looking around and feeling a little on edge. It was warm outside and we had the windows opened yet I felt chilled to the bone.
He was still in the shower when the doorbell rang. I knew it was the pizza guy so I grabbed the money and quickly walked down the long hallway to the living room. As I reached the middle of the living room I suddenly stopped. I was just a few feet from the front door and from the corner of my eye I could see a dark shadow at the end of the table in the dining room. I must have done a Michael Jordan leap to the front door because I opened it so fast the pizza guy was startled. Feeling a little embarrassed I smiled, grabbed the pizza gave him a $20.00 dollar bill and told him to just keep the change. At that time a large pizza was only about $12.00 bucks plus a free 2 liter of soda so he got a good tip.
I walked as fast as I could to the kitchen to get two glasses with ice. They had an old refrigerator with aluminum ice trays. I couldn�t pull the lever back from the ice tray to retrieve the cubes as someone had over filled it and ice had frozen around the lever. While struggling to pull the lever I could feel someone in the kitchen watching me. All the hairs on the back of my neck and arms were standing straight up straight! I swear I felt someone touch the back of my neck and lift some strands of my long hair! I grabbed everything and ran down the hall screaming and crying back to the master bedroom.
My friend told me to relax that I was letting my imagination run wild. I told him it was not my imagination and I knew what I saw and what I was feeling! It was all too creepy and instead of trying to comfort me, he was making me feel like I was crazy! I was livid but scared!
I ate some pizza, watched a little TV and fell asleep. It must have been about 2:00 am when I was awakened by a strange noise of something dragging on the floor. I opened my eyes and at the foot of the bed were 3 beings. It was like a mist or fog of some sort. I could make them out to be a woman a man and a child. They were transparent but I could see a human form. Their eyes were dark black holes and they were tall and thin. As they walked along side of each other the woman suddenly noticed I could see them! They were as surprised and seemed as frightened as I was. She looked at the man and pointed at my direction. They all looked at me at the same time! My heart was beating so fast I thought it would explode in my chest! I couldn�t move to alert my friend sleeping next to me. My body was paralyzed and all I could do was follow them with my eyes! I couldn�t even speak because my tongue would not move! The atmosphere in the room was strange. I could see a water reflection on the wall. Like when you�re sitting near a pool at night how the water reflects and dances off the wall. There were sparkles of light everywhere!
I laid there what seemed like an eternity and then my body just gave in to sleep. I awoke some time later and while opening my eyes I could see the younger ghost or being or whatever it was right in front of me slouched down and his face right in mine! I gasped and he took off to the foot of the bed and out the door where his parents (I assume they were his parents) stood watching. Then just like that they were gone, vanished.
I didn�t fall back to sleep until sun rise about 6:00 am or so then only sleeping about 1 hour. I got up put on my gym shoes not bothering to get dressed because I slept in my sweat pants and t-shirt. I never returned to that apartment nor did I ever see my so called friend again. His loss.
My friends who lived there never experienced anything. In fact no one actually believed me when I told them. It did happen and I will never forget the terror I felt that night nor will I forget the ghosts of Logan Square. This is absolutely a true story.
