Real Ghost Stories

The Big One

 

I left my last story "Just a Handful..." with the late night visit. Whatever it was came into my room and stopped on the other side of my bed. This story will pick up from there just a few weeks later.

I had been on my guard since the last visit. It was the first time I felt threatened/scared. At this time I was not very well versed with the finer points of hauntings or how to deal with them. It was a week night so it was off to bed early because I am a natural early riser. I was awakened around midnight by a horrible nightmare that left me and the sheets soaking wet. The details of that dream have faded over the years but still remember the darkness of it.

I got up to get a drink of water and to let the sheets dry out a bit. I climbed back into bed shifting more to one side to stay off the damp sheets. As I laid there trying not to think of the nightmare I caught an "off" sound that came from the end of the bed. My ears perked up as I strained to hear the sound again. I decided to grab a pillow and propped

My head up on the sleigh bed's footboard. Just moments later I did hear the sound again. It came from the wall that was just feet from my head. I shot straight up and turned to face the sound. The sound was nothing I had ever heard or have ever heard since that night. I can only compare it the sound of a can of spray paint being discharged but much, much lower in tone.

As I stared at the wall and sound I tried to pin point what part of the wall it was coming from. However the sound would be toward the lower part and then sound off up toward the top. They came 5-10 seconds apart. Then 4-5 seconds apart. Shooting from the top left to the bottom right. All of a sudden it was a constant repetitive mean disturbing LOUD over and over again. I had back up from the foot of the bed mid way through staring with WIDE eyes trying to figure out what the h#*ll was going on.

I soon realized that I did want to be where I was at. I jumped from the bed and headed for the front of the house. As I entered the utility room the sound got stronger and louder. It was coming from the bathroom that was opposite from my room. I flipped the light on in the utility room as I eased up to the bathroom. The sound was deafening. I stretched my arm into the bathroom to turn on the light. The sound was coming from the bathtub and wouldn't you know it the shower curtain was closed. I was pretty much freaking out at this point and wasn't about to enter the bathroom and open that curtain with my hand.

I looked around the utility room and saw the broom. I quickly grabbed that and slowly creped into the bathroom. I had the broom stretched out cause I wanted to be as far away from that tub as possible. I hooked the end of the shower curtain and jerked it open. And there, right there in front of me was nothing. Nothing but this evil, evil sound going around in circles over and over pausing from second to second to stop in front of me to give me a "well howdy do" to let me know it knew I was there.

I was shaking in my undies. Tears were streaming down my face and was unable to comprehend what I was witnessing. I have since learned that mean hauntings feed off your fears, well let me tell you there was plenty of fodder to feed from. I was absolutely terrified. This moment only lasted about a minute or two but seemed like hours. It continued going around and around in this small space of the shower/tub getting madder and madder. The low deep spraying sound was so loud at this point. After the few minutes it made a move to the lower part of the tub constantly making the sound and going in circles. Here's odd part, IT went down the drain. You could hear as the tone changed as it entered the opening and how the sound carried as it went into the plumbing to fade out.

I was left standing there with a broom in my hands shaking. I quickly left the bathroom and went to the front room. I was pacing back and forth trying to figure out what had just happened and what I was going to do next. I knew I had to calm down some how. That sound just seemed to continue in my head over and over. I grabbed my phone and text Jennifer. (I told her I was writing this and got her permission to use her name). I tried to explain what had just happened and she did what she could do to comfort me.

After a bit I knew I had to get to bed because I had to be a work in a short time. With EVERY light on I eased into the bedroom. I climb into bed sliding all the way to the other side of the bed with my back on the edge of the bed. I was facing the door way and could see pretty much all of the room. I laid there for only a few moments when I felt something set on the bed right where the previous visitor stopped. It sat on part of my leg as it made itself comfortable. I was able to see the bed compress down as this happened. Sigh, I screamed like a little girl and ran to the front room and picked up my shaking. I was back to the pacing around like crazy again trying figure my best move.

The thing was I didn't have anyplace to go. I called Jennifer again relaying the bed moment. That's when I soon learned what Buck felt from the previous story. There was such a heavy, intense, thick, mean feeling/vibe that radiated from the door way into the utility room. It's presents was so, so forceful that I found myself in the furthest corner of the front room. I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I felt so mean. I was afraid it was going to spill into the front and fill it up with this thick soup.

Jennifer did what she could do from the phone but there was not much there at this point. I wanted to run and fast. But I was in my underwear and it was February in AR which means very cold. I had to set in the corner of that room for hours to pass until that feeling of being watched by a mean thing to fade away. When it did I ran into my room quickly gabbing whatever clothes I could find and throw them on as I headed out the front door.

I was at work a couple hours early and took that time to use the showers that were available. The whole day I was in a very bad way. I was able to share with one person what had happened and my concerns of going home that evening. It was obvious to all that I was still shaken up.

I did go home that afternoon. I didn't know what to expect. Things seemed to still have an odd feeling about them. What I did know was I was NOT sleeping in that room again and never did again. I filled up an air mattress and slept in the front room for the remaining two weeks that I lived there.

Comparably to some stories I have read on this site it may not seem BIG. However it was huge to me. It had terrified me and I know it wanted too. I usually enjoyed watching horror movies and such however after that night I didn't want anything to do with scared. I don't know if the next people that moved in had anything like this happen to them. I don't know the history of the house nor am I about to find out. I just want that house and what experienced stay in that part of the state. I very rarely travel through Melbourne anymore. But when I do I have yet to drive by the house.

Thanks for reading. Hope it makes sense. I'm kind of feeling strange reliving that time. But life moves on. Have lots of moments at different locations since then. Will work on some of those. Most are cute, fun, cool ones. Few were not but try to handle them better.

ahh, Tweed- Thank you! I appreciate the fact you remembered the story and my "fright" night. I have to say that as the years has past the issue have lessened somewhat. However, I don't think about it as much I as I used to. I guess this little paranormal vacation we are currently on helps. Vacation as in not having much at all 😁.

I have yet to hear anything like that sound since that night. I can't describe it any other way than I did from the story. Thanks again for thinking of me. I always enjoy reading your comments from other stories as well my own 😁

Wish Not, for the past few weeks the people over the road from us have been tinkering with their car. Every now and then they do something while the motor runs which makes this weird low, super loud spraying noise. No idea what the hell they could possibly be doing to make this noise, nonetheless it's odd.

Last night they started up this noise after dark. Because it was dark out it reminded me of this awful encounter you had. 😭 Like you, I have no words for it.

I don't mean to say I know what you went through, as I can only imagine. Wanted to tell you this because I realise how things like this can traumatise a person. Although what I heard last night was that car being tuned or pimped or whatever they're doing, at the same time I felt for you and, yeah words fail me.😢

Kindly_refrain- I appreciate that you did take time to read my stories and I'm really glad it led you to ALL the other awesome stories available here with YGS.

I guess one can look at this experience as a "spectacular encounters" as far as making a good story, however; it was FAR from anything spectacular. I'm sure you can understand.

Even coming back to comment on this stirs uneasy feelings in me. It brings back unwanted memories that I find difficult to deal with. Even with all that has happened since from our previous house hasn't helped. The pure meanness from this particular entity is something...well, I can't find the words for it.

Thank you for the kind words. I have to close this up, my heads spinning, ha. Weird, just plan weird why I still let this bother me like it does.

I said that I would read your stories when I saw that you had posted comments on mine. I have to tell you that I read all of your stories a couple of years back. Your stories are what got me into reading other stories on YGS. I understand that you had to live through this but they are spectacular encounters. I loved reading them and hope my encounters never reach anywhere near this level.

Kimmie- I didn't know that I could be that terrified. It was a life changing experience for me. Although the totality of that night has faded a lot, I can still bring that intense feeling back by telling the story or reading this again.

You mentioned that your spirit turned mean. Hope it wasn't to this extreme. Guess I will wait and see.

Thanks for reading Kimmie

This story is horrifying to me. There is something about unexplained sounds that send chills up my spine, and for you to be alone! No thanks! I even have the creeps after reading it. Great story!

I don't think you are rambling. My son is a medium, and we have passing energies that look in our windows all the time. He senses them and our cats see them. Another medium said our house is like a magnet because of the combination of my healer-person energy and my son's medium abilities. So, there are ghost/energies around a lot. And they get attracted to various things. Do you need a house cleansing/blessing? I do this every month or so. And I regularly visualize like a force field all around my house and yard, keeping the negative ones at bay. I allow positives in, but only those whose intent is loving can come in. Keeps my dreams a lot lighter.

I am wondering if, and that's a BIG if, we have a new visitor. Our current guest have not been able to achieve this. Or it hasn't wanted to before now. I mentioned that the house has been quite active lately but just the normal abnormal stuff that we have gotten used to. In addition, there are several stories I have written here about ones that just show up out of the blue and move on after making contact.

Is it possible that a new one has the old one riled up? Here I go again Elanora, rambling again.

And I think an entity can even give you and your friend, Jennifer similar dreams if it wants to do that.

3 years ago (2014-12-31)
And just to be clear, this has nothing to do with the dream. The question was can an entity influence a persons dream.

The question was asked by Jennifer after I made the comment on how weird my dreams have been the past three nights. She herself have been having them as well the past three nights. Coincidence? I don't know but the house has been quite active lately. So she was curious IF they could be the cause of it.

I know this site has guidelines and dreams, specifically are not to be the main topic. I do find that ghosts/energies/however we want to label them influence us in ways we do not understand. I am fascinated with all of it, astral travel, the idea of time travel, multiple dimensions, etc. After many years of reading about quantum physics as well as psychic literature. From my reading and experience, it all comes back to our intention. That is why they can feed off our fears. Fear gives the impression of weakness. So they can easily take our energy. Anger is powerful, but love even more so. I am always happy to chat more. I love these sites.

HecateO- I appreciate your comment. I have heard of astral travel. Not sure if I actually do/done it though. I am sure there are hazards involved as you mentioned.

My visitor that night had absolutely no troubles reaching me. It came through LOUD and clear. Scared the poop out of me. Ha.

Thanks for taking the time to read and commenting!

Wish-Not, I have long stories about dreams being influenced both by the energies themselves and by my worries about them. I think it is time I posted a story or two here. But to answer your question quickly, both. That energy, whatever it was, negative or feisty, can reach you sometimes even more easily in your dreams. We are also more likely to inadvertently leave our bodies, astral travel. And they have access to us that way, too. That is my take on it.

I would like to take a moment and get everyone's thoughts on something that was asked this morning. It is actually something that started my horrid night from this story. The "nightmare".

The question that was asked "Can an entity influence a persons dream"?

I personally feel that the "Mean SOB" that gave a horrible night did indeed cause me to have the nightmare. I'm not sure if that was it's intention or just the fact that it made itself known to me caused it. Like it's presence was enough to cause the nightmare.

Really interested in what others think on this.

ifihadyoux- Our current guest is just a trickster/button pusher. It has not been trying to scare us at all. It just requires a little attention every now and then. So trying to get rid of it? Not really.

However we get a new one every so often that gives us the "SURPRISE"! Factor that manages to give me/us a scare. But I don't think it means to. So far.

Anyways, always appreciate your comments and taking time to read my stories.

Manafon- It was a very unique sound. As I said in the story, have never heard anything like it before or since. My description of it really didn't do it justice. That's the best way I could describe it. I'll never be able to forget it.

Thanks for reading and commenting. Will be looking for more stories from you.

Hey Wish-Not, I really found your experiences at this house extremely interesting and well conveyed. The sound you heard was particularly intriguing. It's a sound that doesn't make a lot of sense and that seems to be par for the course with a lot of paranormal stuff. In the early 1990s I was living in an old building with a German restaurant downstairs and three apartments upstairs. One night my then girlfriend (now wife) and I were awakened by the bizarre sound of a car squeeling its tires as if it was in our living room. It grew louder and louder and then the whole apartment filled with the thick smell of burning tire rubber!

We were completely stunned by all of this and we looked out the window to see if we could see a car doing this. A fresh snow had just fallen as it was February and ther was no car anywhere in sight, just the three cars of the people who lived in the building covered in snow and silent. Yet the sound persisted for five minutes. The burning tire smell was so bad we had to open all the windows and get out fans to disperse it. One of our apartment neighbors had an unused alarm clock in his closet go off at exactly the same time we were hearing the car tire sound. He didn't hear anything but the alarm which seemed impossible as the tire squeeling sound was so loud.

The sound, like the sound you described didn't seem to have any rhyme or reason but to attract our attention. It did! Also found your story of the stereo turning itself on intriguing. I had to unplug my new stereo at the time every night otherwise at three in the morning (or around that time) it would start a loud rythmic thumping that would rise in volume until it was shattering. The stereo monitor light would pulse in unison with the thumping. Took the stereo in to two places to have it looked over but was told both times that it was in perfect condition. I have a lot of wild stories from that place and I even uncovered a few answers to some through the local historical archive (like the identity of a full bodied apparition I saw one night). I will have to write of some of those later and shut up for now. Anyway, your stories have been truly interesting. Thanks for sharing them.

ifihadyoux-That would be cool and funny. But that's the reason I choose my screen name. This was nothing I wished for or would wish for. They still scrare me from time to time. I believe most don't intend to though.

Just dread coming across one like the one from this story. It was just plan mean. I had another bad one but a different bad. That will be my next story I guess. It was more... Well you'll see.

Thanks for comment. Always appreciated.

spookie1- Sorry I didn't see this post earlier. Thank you for the kind words. It was a very intense encounter that I wouldn't wish on anyone. Politicians included. Lol

I've grown a lot since it happened. However, one never knows how they will react until it happens again. "WISH-NOT"!

Thanks for reading and commenting.

Swimsinfire-Thanks for your comment. It was a frightening experience. Even though there was nothing to see in the shower, something was there and it was mad and I really believe at me. Most visits at our current location have been tame compared to that one. Some are even really funny stuff. I'll work on some more stories telling of these tales. Have a great week!

Everyone always asks,"do you know the history of the place" I liked your prequil to the sequil, "I don't know the history of the house, nor am I about to find out!" Hope your future expieriences are peacefull. Awsome story and well writen. Caught myself holding my breath until nothing was in the shower! 😊

elnoraemily- Thanks for the well being wishes. I felt like I was kind of rambling in my writing. Just reliving that night left me wiped out.

Problem free not so much. But nothing to that degree. We currently have a little mischief guest. Sunday it threw a potted banana plant off the deck. But they have been worst.

Appreciate your time and comments. Glad you found YGS helpful as well.

I have been waiting for this story, and I am very happy that it was posted. Your accounts are written extremely well.

I was going to suggest something wrong with the piping, but the fact that it keeps getting louder and louder is different from that sort of problems. Leaving for your own mental well being was an excellent idea- no matter what, if you don't feel comfortable somewhere, leaving that place is always the best.
I would have left after that sort of experience as well.

I'm happy that you found a place to vent your experiences and talk with others who can help.

Best wishes to you and I hope your future remains problem free <3

mimerkki- I just wish I didn't show as much fear as I did. Valkricry mentioned on an other story "just a handful..." that there were possible two different ghost there and the playful one tried to help to some degree. That's something that I have been thinking about. I do know that the last one intended nothing but meanness. And I was ill equipped to deal with it. Hind sight, I would have done Rooks cleansing and got rid of the darn thing.
Thanks for your time to read and comments. All are valued.

I am very happy, that you found your way here in YGS, (and that I found my way here). Thank you for your story. I don't think you could have handled that experience differently then, so it is not even right to blame yourself. The way you told the story gave me the impression, that the spirit in your house was seriously after you (or anyone trying to live in the house). It would not have been a good idea to confront it without help anyway.

lady-glow Thank you for the kind words. The visits now have not been anywhere as intense as then. Mostly just a quick visit and they are gone. I think lol!

I was seriously worried that I had something mean attached to me. However I soon learned and felt that I was fortunate that I did not. Thanks again for your comments.

valkricry- I guess the issues that I live with now from that experience is I didn't handle it very well. I should have stood up to it. But at that point in my life I didn't know. It definitely was not the plumbing.

That experience is what brought me to YGS. I needed answers. And happily I did find a lot of answers here just from reading the comments from other stories. I do appreciate this site. Thanks for the comment!
