Tebray Is Back!

Posted on June 4, 2010

Back in 2008 I posted a story about a ghost called Tebray ( The Boogeyman Whispered ‘Tebray’ ) and how he used to torture me when I was 3. I am now 16, 17 in July and live in a town called Hebburn. I thought it would be good to reminisce and go back to all the previous houses I had lived in, including the one in Longbenton also known as the devil’s house where Tebray was.

This is how it went, me and my friend went on a trip to Longbenton and I didn’t realize I was walking past my old house where Tebray was. My eyes were glued to the window where the sitting room was. I ran from the front to the house to the back where my old bedroom was. I was thinking that its been too long to hold this fear anymore, so I decided to confront them. As soon as I spotted my bedroom, a nightmare/flashback appeared, and I started to shiver and turn stone cold. My friend at this point was getting very worried and started to usher me away, but it was like I was super glued to the floor, frozen.

I stared into my bedroom where I saw him again. I felt the same as what I did back in the day when he used to hurt me. Cold, alone, lost, dead. A tear streamed down my eye, as I couldn’t believe after this long he was still there. He lifted his head once again and pointed at me and said “you!” My eyes widened and I snapped myself back together and ran away tears streaming down my face, shaking a if I spent all night in a freezer.

That night I went back to Hebburn where I now currently lived. As soon as I stepped into the door my mum knew something was wrong. I felt no energy left in me so instead of telling her, I just went to bed. That night I woke up for the toilet and I saw him standing outside my room. I screamed, I couldn’t believe he followed me. I took a fit and my mum had to resuscitate me. I pointed at him, but then he faded away.

The next day I explained to my mum what had happened and where I went that yesterday. She hugged me and said “he cant hurt you, grandma wont let him babe.” My grandma died when I was 4 years old, she was the one from stopping hurting me back then, as I said to my mum at the age of three that he couldn’t hurt me no more, as grandma wouldn’t let him.

The next night I slept in my mums bed. Practically stuck to her back, and then again I needed the toilet. I woke up and there he was leaning over my mum again. He whispered “Tebray.” I screamed and my mum suddenly woke up and try to calm me down. This is happening all over again I knew it. I regretted ever walking past that house in Longbenton. Now he’s back. Enough is enough I thought the next day, so I shouted in my bedroom, if your going to haunt me again, do it now, I’m not frightened anymore, you will not get the better of me like you did when I was three. I felt a sudden gush of ice cold run through me, but I wasn’t giving in. I screamed “is that all you got, sorry but its not scaring me?” Then he appeared at the bottom of the stairs. I just stared at him, didn’t feel frightened, I just felt angry. He looked up and whispered “Tebray” turned around and walked through the front door. I felt relieved that I could finally get on with my life and not have that fear of him. I can now listen to that X Files tune without being scared. The X Files story is a whole different story what he used to do when I was younger. One day I will share it but for now thank you for reading this update of him.

    • Natalie Nelson says:

      i was just walking around, i wanted to visit my other house too which i had, and i didnt realise i had to pass that one to go to it. my friend is petrofied and she is a bit phycic too, she felt him, but didnt see him. the x files story is too difficult to explain, so once i find the right words, i’ll let you know.

  2. AnNa says:

    i read your first story and what would of happened if you just went closer to him when you needed to go to the bathroom?youll never know now and you were little so you wouldnt of thought about that,just rememeber whos stronger you or him.i know its not him.thanks for the story.

  3. Em says:

    Wow.It sounds like Tebray hates you.I’m glad your not afraid of him anymore.Thanks for the story!

  4. Rylee says:

    Ok, first of all, I understand wanting to visit your old house.
    But if you felt this thing was as dangerous as it was, you shouldn’t have.
    It sounds like a demon, and those follow and cause physical harm..
    Promise me that you won’t ever go back again.
    And if you see him again, call and exorcist, get the house blessed, and start carrying crosses.

    The name Tebray:

    * Your name Tebray gives you a strong sense of responsibility in business and material affairs, and the practicality and determination to make a success of anything you undertake.

    * Your ability to organize and direct the efforts of others enables you to excel in any managerial position because you have the ability to grasp the concept of a goal complete with an understanding of the steps to be taken.

    * This name has allowed you to develop depth and breadth of mind.

    * You are able to retain facts, to grasp new information to your existing store of knowledge.

    * Although the name Tebray creates the urge to be reliable and responsible, it can cause an unscrupulous, materialistic approach that frustrates higher humanitarian qualities.

    * This name, when combined with the last name, can frustrate happiness, contentment, and success, as well as cause health weaknesses in the reproductive system, worry, and mental tension.

    Hi Natalie

    I too am from England and passed through Longbenton a couple of times.

    I’m a historian, and I’ve come across the name before, only it is different in spelling.

    Tebrei is in Venice, although I’m not quite sure of the facts, during the war it was inhabited by both German and English.

    Tebrei is also in Palestine, which it where it becomes more interesting. Somewhere between 14th and 15th Century, fighting broke out between the Jews and Palestinians. A huge amount of people were killed. This was called ‘The Liberation of Palestine’. I’m unsure as of whether Palestine was freed.

    I’ll check at work tomorrow. Just to clarify this info isn’t readily available on the www.

    Thank you for sharing and I hope this helps.

    Steph xx

  15. Charmaine says:

    Wow, that is really scary. I’ve submitted the story ” was it the boogeyman”. Can you please describe how this thing looked? Have you see it again? Glad you stood up and aren’t afraid anymore! Keep well and that’s for sharing your story :)
