The Noise In The Alley by Meister

First of all, I'd like to apologise for any mistake or misunderstanding, as English is not my native language. That being said, I have a rather short story to share, that happened a dozen of years ago (can't remember when exactly). At that time, I was camping with my parents and my then-girlfr...

The Parisian Boy by NinaK

When I was 17, I had the chance to go on my first big trip all on my own. I was pretty happy, because for me it meant going, for the first time, to Paris, without any adult supervision.

My partner and I have just returned from a week's holiday in a gite in a rather remote part of Brittany. The property was next to a railway line, being the former home of a signalman.

The Spirit In My Bedroom 2 by Mussi14

In late December 2013, I was home for the holidays, and I was in my bedroom when my dog started acting strangely, as if she was staring at something.

The Spirit In My Bedroom by Mussi14

This happened when I was nine and lived in a small village called Bargemon, but it scared me so much that I still remember it clearly.
