Someone Under The Covers With Me by EmmalineTexas

We live in Texas City and it's the site of a massive industrial accident that happened in 1947 that killed at least 576 people.

Garden Of The Gods by valkricry

It was the summer of 1984, and we had decided to take the newly acquired (used) Nimrod camper out.

Our destination was at the Southern tip of Illinois - the Shawnee Nation...

Childhood Ghosts by NightlyEclipse

When I was little, about two or three, and we moved out of the city, my parents and I moved to a plot of land that my grandparents (farmers) owned.

A Sign From My Best Friend by BuskyBolder

About three years ago in April my best friend Bill died of a drug overdose in a Taco Bell bathroom in Newport, KY. Best friend is really an understatement. He was more like a brother to me.

The Tea Set by Lilwolf

From the time I was very little I have always enjoyed reading, my mom said that from the time I could walk I was constantly bringing books to her wanting her to read to me.

A Rather Strange Company by Sanguirina

This is a story where two have been combined. My own experience, which I only came to realise was out of the 'normal' because my grandmother mentioned (the second story) there was more to it. Therefore this story will be longer than the others have been, but I hope you'll enjoy it nevertheless. -...

Highway Trouble! by nalchen

Wanted to get this story in here the very next day it happened, but I had taken a good 20 odd days to analyze the mysterious appearance and disappearance of a man, that in all means I believe, is a ghost.

Shadow Man On Cairnhill Road by Jubeele

For much of my childhood days in Singapore, my parents often worried about me as they felt I was "sensitive" to spirits and prone to "seeing" things others couldn't see.
