As a little child, when my great-grandmother (grandfather's mother) was alive, I used to be scared of her. Only reason I was scared of her was because she had these spots all over her skin.

A Candle in the Snow by rhodes68

Many have come to call it "follie"; I have always thought it as being the "yearning" of a "young heart" to dwell into the mysteries of love and seek for a sense of completion and, with that being the moving force, I set off to marry my good friend at the age of 19. It didn't last long! I still recal...

A Few Spooky Experiences by ghostbeliever79

When my great grandmother was in the hospital dying, her brother passed away. Her siblings didn't want to put her in more pain, so they didn't tell her.

A Hug From Beyond by BYLUYSTER

Looking back I have to wonder if it was a dream or if it was real. Let's say it felt very real. I've been hugged by many people in my life, but not like that.
