It is Heavy
I used to study architecture in one of the universities inside Intramurals. You cannot discriminate the academic standards of the university, especially the free architecture course costing hundreds of thousands somewhere else; the particular course however, was located in a rather most grotesque building in the whole university.
Outside it resembles a church, with stained glass windows and a huge picture of former president Cory beside the wooden arched doors. When you enter, first thing you’ll see is the stairs and before you can enter the second floor, you have to open a really large and heavy wooden door. When you open the door you see a long hallway. On the right are windows shut close with bamboo. On the right were doors of the Audio Visual rooms (AVR). On the other end was another heavy door that will open up to more rooms, then the fire exit. The same applies for the third floor.
I really held little interest …Read Complete Story Here...

My Best Friend Manong part 2
So I’ve looked at your comments (My Best Friend Manong) and I’d like to add more things to my story.
I remembered my mom mentioning the word “England” and Manong never hurt me ever.
I did research in my house and its the house from the first century, many people live their from the years and died. I found out that the tree was actually a mango tree.
But I found out that not only Manong lived their, Elves, Ghosts, and many other creatures did too.
My cousin, Michael was standing on our porch, He was admiring the tree when something struck him, something bad and invisible. His mom took him to the doctor and his face was growing bubbles, large bubbles! The doctor said he got some kind of sickness. Michael, said the last place he went to was the Mango Tree. We found out that the mango tree was a home to many other mythical creatures. …Read Complete Story Here...

My Very Own Demon
I have been having strange activity in my house for over a year, and the strange part is, is that I’M the only one having the activity. I have to say that most of it isn’t very friendly activity either. I may be 14, but I know what’s real, and what’s not.
The first major encounter that I have had was one that has scared me the most. I was in the bathroom, getting ready for school, when the temperature of the room plummeted. I stood there frozen, unable to move. It was then when I heard a moan, and the words, “get out.” I quickly got out of there, but for the rest of the time that I was home, the energy of the house was… weird, and uncomfortable, like a murderer was staring down your shoulder.
A few days later, another frightening experience. I was sitting on my couch watching TV, and my dogs wanted to come inside. …Read Complete Story Here...
Haunted in a Hotel
It’s been 3 years I experienced this chilling incident but it still scares me when I think about it now!
I went to Kolkata for a holiday with my boyfriend. As soon as we reached we checked into a hotel. We stumbled into our room.. tired and dusty as a result of the rickshaw ride! I started unpacking and by that time, my boyfriend was already in the shower. I passed him a towel and he told me that the food in the hotel wasn’t so great (he had stayed there before) so he was going to get food from a nearby restaurant.
As soon as I locked the door securely behind me I rushed to take a shower, it was a quick one! I wanted to lie down on the bed so badly. I came out of the shower and I felt a cold brush of air wen I reached the foot of the bed, it was really cold …Read Complete Story Here...
Touched by a Ghost
This happened not to long ago. A few months ago I was in English class. We were in the Library that day. Me and my two close friends got on the subject of ghosts and experiences we had with them. One of my friends started to talk about this “guardian” like ghost.
We were in a pretty dead corner of the library and while talking about my friends guardian we all started to feel sick and faint. It was near lunch time but it came and passed through us all at the same time. My other friend seemed to anger the ghost and by lunch time she claimed the ghost was hurting her.
We were standing in the hall near the end of lunch and my friend had have enough of the ghost torturing her for the remark she made earlier about him. She then yelled,” Leave me alone!” and the ghost stopped. Seconds later I felt pain all up …Read Complete Story Here...

Just a Warning
This is not technically a story, but I may post my experiences on here after this. I know that there are people on here who post stories that are made up, just for the purpose of being special. But the more you make up, the more that comes true.
There are also people on here who read stories on here, because maybe you like to be scared, though nothing has happened to you. If you are reading this and you are doing what I mentioned above, possibly wishing that something might happen to you, then listen to my warning. I know what it’s like to truly fear, and it’s nothing like what you feel when watching scary movies.
I don’t know about others of you who have gone through terrifying things, but for me, true fear is not wanting to be awake, but not wanting to be asleep either. It’s wanting to close yourself in a small space and curl …Read Complete Story Here...
This story is about my granpa in his early 20′s. This happened before he married granny. He lived in a village that burned down fifteen years ago. He was a handsome young fellow. Tall, strong jet black hair and blue eyes. He worked in a coffee shop that hadn’t got good business. He worked there from 6 am to 10 pm even in the winter when it was freezing cold.
One winter night when my granpa was feeling numb and dizzy since he only had a bread with butter and a few drops of mead (beer) as a midnight snack. Just then he heard faint footsteps and he clutched his gun which he kept with himself just in case a thief came in. No it was nothing like a thief. It was a woman with beautiful hazelnut eyes and blonde hair tied in a bundle and was wearing a warm gown and was clutching a small baby boy who was …Read Complete Story Here...
The Missing Painting of Horus
I was on a trip to Egypt with my mum, dad, sis and uncle. We were staying in a lovely hotel which had a difficult name so i cant remember. There were lots of Egyptian pictures on the walls of our room.
There was a picture of Horus in my bedroom which i had to share with my sister Anne. My parents slept in the next room and my uncle slept on the couch. It was more of an apartment but it didn’t have a kitchen. The picture of Horus freaked me out a lot and i was quite ashamed since i knew it was only a picture and my sis didn’t seem to be bothered of it at all.
One night my uncle had gone out to the bar and mum and dad were talking to the people down in the lobby. i was in my room alone. Anne was playing with the girl next door. I looked at …Read Complete Story Here...
The Ghost in my Conservatory Bedroom
I’m 18 years old and I’ve just recently moved back from living with my girlfriend to my parents house, they have a small bungalow which only has 3 rooms, so I chose to turn the conservatory into my bedroom.
The conservatory is about 30 years old and feels as though it is falling down. Right anyways, when I moved back in nothing happened for about a month, then out of the blue one night I heard scratching against the door to the garden (the door is made of wood), I didn’t really think anything of it but it kept occurring night after night after night, so I got a bit freaked.
One night straight after the scratching had stopped I felt a cold chill going across my face as though someone was breathing in my face. But I checked to see the heater was on (which it was) and couldn’t put a answer to why that chill breeze was hitting …Read Complete Story Here...
