Real Ghost Stories

The Tall Girl

 

This is my first experience I am sharing. It was 3:00 a.m when I suddenly woke up from an odd feeling when you think someone is watching you. I was very frightened at the moment and I was wondering whether I should turn around or not. My face was towards the wall so I turned around a little bit very slowly and I saw a large figure standing at my door with all her hair open and I could clearly tell it was a girl. I did not know what to do. I was terribly frightened and I was not able to yell it was as if it's stuck in my throat. I could clearly see it just standing for about 5 seconds.

The very creepy thing is that I had a nightlight and a the red light from my clock was shining and it was pretty clear. Then, all of a sudden I screamed and it was as if someone had paused a girl screaming in a movie then played it. My mom had heard and when the light turned on it had disappeared. After that I did not sleep in my room for about a week. This has happened 3 times again after the first incident and it occurred between 5 months.

A few months later at the same time, 3:00 a.m., I suddenly woke up because I heard footsteps and I was wondering who came into my room in the middle of the night. I was not that scared this time so I turned around and I saw the exact same girl standing there still staring at me and this time she was a little closer then the door, she was in the middle of my room.

I did not want to shout again because I knew nobody would believe me so I just closed my eyes and began to pray. I did not open my eyes until the next morning and I did not tell anyone but my mom could tell something was wrong.

To be continued...

Could someone bash me over the head to knock me out, please? I'll give you cookies and ice cream.

Thank you in advance.

SDS - I didn't take offense at all 😊. Sometimes I feel the same way LOL.

There are times when we get an onslaught of stories that just, well frankly, they're terrible and we have to discard 10 or more before we find 1 that is publishable. And then there are other times that we get great stories. It's just odd the way it happens.

whatever name you give it, it's still water 😜

Bought Oscar a leather harness and lead, yesterday. After fiddling with it, I managed to adjust it, put it on him, which was funny (I have this mad idea of taking my cat for a walk). When I tried to undo one of the clips, he wouldn't let me, but I did so, and he was free. He then walked off, carrying the harness, onto the landing, and played with it. 😁

Corporation pop: over here it is called "municipality beer" (out of the tap...) 😊

Dear Miracles,

Thanks for responding with your explanation and I do not mean to underestimate your abilities or that of other editors. Again I generally do not tend to be harsh and if I offended any one of you by my comments, I apologise for the same. But I just posted my comments as I felt it and never meant to offend any one.

Regards and respects to you.

Puff Dares... Home Brewed Beer can be the best beer (sometimes) Though I really enjoy a good Home Brewed Mead... But NEVER while driving. (LoL)

There are time when the Miss Demeanor drags the BS Blankie over a story...that's when you know it really stinks...

i'm going to say goodnight to you all, put my pyjamas on and watch 'the rocky horror picture show' in bed. I'm tired.

It's a combination of anaemia and bad dreams that's making me tired. I will be back, tomorrow, sometime.

Goodnight to you all and bless you's. I've had a happy time, today. Thank you. 😊 ❤

Fergie, it's a pleasure to explain corporation pop to you and others here. 😊

My cats drink the mineral variety. I'm not sure if they'd drink the tap variety, now.

Miracles, it's no problem. Would you like some Vimto in your water?

*offers Vimto*

Vimto is a fruit flavoured cordial.

Just knocked me cup of tea over 😢 it was a fresh brew, an' all.

Cookie, corporation pop is a new one on me 😕
And here I was, always calling it "Adams ale"...

Well, it just goes to show... You are never too old to learn!

Thank you for the lesson, cookie. 😐

Cookie - thanks for explaining the "corporation pop." I am enjoying one right now LOL

And you're welcome 😊 As for behaving, well...we've all been known to get into trouble of some sort around here 😉

Miracles, thanks for the explanation. I'll be sure to behave myself 😉

Corporation pop is just water. 😊

It comes from the times when we (in England, anyway), had horse drawn traffic. City councils used to send out corporation carts to wash the streets.

Cookie - no offense taken. Every once in awhile granny or I will offer an explanation for why some of the stories end up on here. Sometimes, although this wasn't one of those times, we are very strongly criticized and we get defensive. I think you'll notice if/when that happens 😉 😆

Thanks for the drink. I do appreciate it. I am curious, though. What's a "corporation pop?"

*offers Miracles51031 a bottle of corporation pop*

I didn't mean to offend you or anyone else when I mentioned 'back to the future', but it DOES end with 'to be continued...'

And when I saw it at the end of the story, I wondered why the o/p ended just there. Why didn't they continue and finish it?

And, being the 'new girl', i'd best watch what I say. I apologise if i've offened you or others on here, today. 😐

And thanks for the offer of a soda, but I'll have to decline. I can only drink something non-carbonated (migraine meds 😉). So a water will be fine, if you don't mind. Thanks 😆

Sceptic-Ari - ah, but then you see what happens to their story? Either Puff fires up the Miss Demeanor or the BS Blankey gets tossed on it 😆

sds - speaking only for myself, sometimes I'll make a decision to post a story like this for a couple of reasons. One of them being that maybe out of the dozen or so stories I'd tried to edit that day/night, this one was one of the better of the bunch. Unfortunately that happens a lot.

Another reason is because sometimes (and I may get my hand smacked for this), I think maybe they just need to deal with the repercussions of ending a story that way 😉 This isn't a game, or a movie, and shouldn't be treated that way.

Rook,

are pets allowed? I'd like to bring Oscar. He's good, friendly and will use a litter tray. I'd bring Flossie, but knowing how she is with strangers, it isn't wise.

I'm going to try your clensing recipe, tomorrow. Is there anything special I need for it?

Hi, what has this 3 a.m. Sequence has got to do with the paranormal. I do not understand. I have not heard that 3 a.m. Is a witching hour in our customs and as others have stated that it is not so in other places too.

But, I find this hard to believe this narrative and I feel that the editors should be more careful before publishing such 'stories'. What is this last part 'to be continued' as if the writer knows when the next encounter would happen.

I am sorry to be harsh but could not digest the stuff.

Regards and respects to every one.

It seems that you know what's going to happen next or you are not telling us by writing 'to be continued' at the end... 😕

It says 'to be continuted...'

Sounds like a back to the future film to me. Remember how bad they were?
