A Lifetime of Hauntings
Where to begin… guess I should start from the time I was 16.
When I turned 16 I noticed that things were different in my surroundings at home. It was like something ominous had settled into my life and the house we lived in. I remember very clearly that my sister and I had fallen asleep around 9 pm since it was a school night.
While I was sleeping I remember having a dream of sorts that scared me so much that I woke up screaming. I remember dreaming that I was in a house that looked like it was Victorian and it was very dark I could see something that looked like a shadow by the window and I could hear it calling my name. I went into the house and tried turning on the lights only to find out that there was no electricity. I could a presence in the house that felt very heavy. As I was …Read Complete Story Here...
Ghost in the Kitchen and Closet Animals?
My name is Brian and I’m 13. One night when I was at my grandmas house, when I was 4, my brother cousin and grandma were in my grandmas room sleeping. I was on the couch and I woke up in the middle of the night for some unknown reason. I looked around and there was a pale man with a balding head. I wasn’t completely sure what to think (being only 4) so I walked to my grandmas room to sleep. I looked in the doorway and it was right there. I think I fainted right there because I don’t remember after that.
My Dad’s Story

After all these …Read Complete Story Here...

Something Under the Bed
I grew up in a house that was built in 1918 with my grandparents, my mother and my brother who is 2 years younger than me. It was a three bedroom house, and my mom and I slept in one room, my grandparents shared another and my little brother had his own tiny room in the front of the house. This tiny room was where we kept our toys and where we would often play.
When I was young, my aunts, uncles and cousins would visit and the house would be full of people. On one particular day when I was about 7 or 8 years old, I was playing with my cousin Dee Dee, who is about 4 years old than me. We were in the hallway upstairs when we heard someone coming up the creaky stairs. We thought that maybe it was my younger brother or another boy cousin, so we decided to hide from them.
We went …Read Complete Story Here...
Granddad My Guardian Angel
When I was seven my granddad found out he had leukemia and to be honest I was heart broken but okay so it was my birthday and I noticed that my granddad was acting a little strange, he kept looking afraid and when ever I looked in his eyes I saw pain. I was seven then so I didn’t know what was wrong. I asked him if he was ok and he just said I’m fine then he would smile to make me believe it.
After my little birthday tea I had to go home and before I went I said to my granddad ‘see you soon’ and he promised me that I will. (sorry I’m upset writing this) I was so happy then I thought nothing could go wrong but then two days later I was at home having my dinner when the phone rang, it was my nan she wanted to call to inform us that my granddad …Read Complete Story Here...
Careful of the Next Tree You Pee On
This story I’m about to tell you guys is completely true. I grew up in very religious family of Buddhism. In Wichita, Kansas about two – thirds of the the populations of Laotians here are Buddhist.
Well anyways, it was about 9 pm when we (my classmates and I) was returning home from a D.A.R.E program that our school was hosting at the 6th grade center in Derby, Kansas (about 15 minutes away from where I live. The bus had dropped us off, in front of our old elementary school and I was the very last one waiting to be picked up by my rents. I didn’t live very far, but didn’t feel like walking in the dark either. I wasn’t too worried about the wait though because one of my good friend lives right in front of the school. He wasn’t home at the time because of his family vacation, so I thought I’d wait in his backyard while …Read Complete Story Here...
Living with Ghosts Since 1966
Hello, I’ve been living in the same house for 56 years, and that’s my age too. Since 1966 there has been a ghost present. A few times a year, my mother would see a large white male, sitting in the north west corner, of her room. I would only hear noises, a few times a year.
In March of 2007, every night at bedtime, I felt something jump on the foot of my bed. I have a cat, so I would look down, but the cat wasn’t there. After about 5 minutes, the bed would start to shake back, and forth (head to toe) for about 30 seconds. This went on every night at bedtime, until July 2007. I went to bed, and my ankles were pushed down on hard. I still didn’t do anything. The next night I felt pressure on my left thigh. So I sat up in bed, and I could see the sheet being pushed down …Read Complete Story Here...
Waking Up a Dark One
Do ghosts really not like dogs? I think that’s true. Me and my mom were talking about this last night and I think I know why this ghost thing is showing up now after we have been living in this house for ten years.
See, my mom and dad are getting a divorce and me and my mom have the house for now but my dad has our dog. One night my moms friend and my mom were talking in her bedroom when my moms friend saw something in the door way just walking by. When she got better focus on it, it was gone.
She said it was black and wearing one of those French hats. Then a few nights later, I saw it.
I was in my room playing on my laptop when, out of the corner of my eye, I saw it standing in my door way. It wasn’t in my room but just outside of my …Read Complete Story Here...
Guardian Angel or Do I Just Miss Him?
My grandfather died around 6 years ago. A few months after this happened is when I started having paranormal experiences.
June 19, 2005
I was spending the night with my grandmother a few months after Larry (my grandfather) had passed away. I was around the age of seven. I had woke up one night, and I saw my grandfather standing in the doorway.
“Papaw, is that really you?” I asked. I didn’t get a response, instead he walked into the room, and passed through the wall beside my bed. Since my bedroom at the time was the master bedroom, i didn’t think anything about it. I just went back to sleep.
I woke up in the morning, fresh in my mind what had happened a few hours ago. As I start to get out of the bed, I hear my papaw’s voice.
“Don’t worry,Kayla. Everything is fine.”
I had no idea if I was imagining it, or what. I ran …Read Complete Story Here...

Figure of My Imagination?
The story I’m about to tell you is something I saw about 5 or 6 years ago now, but am still unsure if what I saw was real or not. Read on and figure out for yourself.
My dad, my sister and I regularly visit my nan who lives in an elderly people’s residence that we all love as it’s surrounded by woodland. When my sister and I were younger we loved visiting as we loved exploring the forests together.
One scorching hot summer day while my dad and Nan were inside chatting away, my sister and I wanted to go and enjoy the warm weather, so we went and played outside in the small front garden she had.
Me and my sister were just laughing about having a good time, when at one point for some unknown reason I looked behind me to the direction of my Nan’s front door. As I did my vision froze on this spot. …Read Complete Story Here...
The Older Brother
Well, my name is Coda. I am 15 year old Female, with a boy name. Um, my brother, Tobias, had died in a car crash on October 31 2010. I had been told that he died in the burst of flames, but I couldn’t believe he was gone.

I have moved to America from Japan so my brother could get a better job to support us as I attend school. Back to what the main part of this story.
