Real Ghost Stories

The Young Man With The Sad Blue Eyes

 

Me and my ex-husband moved to a flat in Sunnyside Pretoria. We stayed on the 5th floor. When we moved in nothing seemed to feel wrong there. This happened in the beginning of 1992.

One night I went to the kitchen for a glass of water. This flat was very modern. The kitchen was very small and open plan. From where I stood I could see the entire sitting room. I leaned against the sink and drank the water. I saw something very strange as I stood there thinking to myself "this can't be true " The carpet in the sitting room was dark brown, and on the carpet was a layout like in a crime scene. It was so strange. I never saw something like that in my life. It looked like the drawing they make around a dead body. This drawing was light green. It looked like someone took a paintbrush that was about 5cm wide and painted this layout on the carpet. The position the person was in was almost like the recovery position. At that moment I thought that I was still half asleep. I thought maybe it's just my imagination. I looked to the glass of water for a view realizing that I'm now awake enough to know where I am and what I'm doing and what I've seen because I could feel my heartbeat picking up. I looked again. It was still there. I got so scared that I just put down the glass and ran to the bedroom. I was really scared. My husband woke up because of me and he went with me to the sitting room and it was gone. I know what I saw. I never saw something like that again.

After this ordeal I settled down with my fear. I blocked it out of my mind. I don't know if I saw a premonition or what. It was something I couldn't explain. I didn't connect it to ghosts. I thought that maybe it was a warning to be careful or something.

One night I was cleaning the kitchen. I looked up and on our couch sat a blond young man dressed in a denim and white t-shirt with tekkies. His hair was blond and short cut and he had sad blue eyes. He looked straight into my eyes. He knew I saw him. He looked worried and sad. I just stood there frozen not because I couldn't believe my eyes. He looked so real to me. He then put his hands into his hair and bent forward sitting there staring down onto the ground. I must admit I was scared but I could feel this ghost was not there to harm or scare me deliberately. I felt sadness when I saw him. He just disappeared again.

Till today I don't know what happened there. I couldn't get any history of the place because it was an empty block of flats before my husband's work place got a contract with the owner of the flats for its workers to stay in. I don't know if the out print on the carpet and the blond young man had a connection. Neither do I know if that young man wanted to tell me something. We stayed for a view months there and moved again to another flat because my ex-husband got a flat on the ground floor in another location where it's not as busy as in the city.

I was glad to move because I saw one more thing in that flat but I will tell it later.

Thank you Trix, it's just nice to see your name come up here again. I'm working on a couple of stories, but it will be a while before I post. I haven't finished the research yet, but it's coming along.

Trix,
I still haven't been back to face book, and to tell you the truth, I don't miss it at all, so I won't ever be going back. 😆 I'll send you an email tomorrow and let you know what's up.

Hi deejayy53, thanks for your comment. I believe that this ghost was attached to the flat itself and not to me. I couldn't get any history about the building, but I'm sure he was murdered in that flat and wanted to show me. It's a pity I couldn't help him. Take care. Trix. ❤

That is an amazing story! Did you ever find out who the boy was? Maybe you could research into your family past and something could come up? The boy could possibily be connected to you in some way.
Looking forward to your next story!:)

Hi Chris004, thanks for commenting. This was indeed a very strange event. I was so stupid way back then, I didn't know that humans could help the unrest to move on and actually help them to move to the light. That young man needed my help, and I didn't realise it. I really hope he finds peace.
Thanks again and take care. Trix.

Hi Trix,

Very very interesting indeed. Cannot believe that I managed to come across your story so late!
I got goosebumps whilst reading it. Anyway, in my opinion, I think the layout on the carpet and ghost had a connection. He might have been the one who died on that carpet. By looking sad and worried, it might be that he died by accident and could not believe that he actually died. The only thing I cannot even try to explain, is the colour of the drawing.
Still, a very creepy encounter!

Hi BadJuuJuu, thanks for your comment. It was so strange. You know the little lights you put at night on your fishing rods, the green florescent ones it looked like that colour. Thanks Trix. 😉

Maybe green was a color with significance to the young man involved? It's such an odd color for a police outline that I can't help but think the color was important to the man you saw in some way.

Hi SuperHBK, thanks man. I'm glad I can share my stories with people like you and everybody else that believes in ghosts. It is a very interesting subject to talk about. I also wondered about the green, but green it was. I still wonder what happened with that young man. Trix ❤

Trix... I think you must start your own paranormal book. All your stories is great. I think that the man you saw have had a connection with the figure in the carpet. It would seem to me that he was trying showing you what happened there and that you could maybe helped him. The odd thing is why green... Normally they use white or red. Any way great story.

HBK ❤

Interesting story... He might be a Soul from purgatory... Read the book "Hungry Souls"...It has pictures of burnt objects that have been touched by souls... (and yes, there is a purgatory)

Interesting story

Wow I would be so scared if I saw that man.

I get scared really easily and this story gives me chills.

Thanks for sharing and by the way, are you going to make another story or type in comments what you saw?
