Recent Paranormal Experiences

She Kept On Teaching by Sammy27

There is another story on here that originated out of my little Podunk town of Ware Shoals, but this one is a lot more recent.

The Ghost At The Abbey by occulting_

I'm back with another story, this one takes place in 2018, when I went on my first proper ghost hunt to a haunted old mansion that used to be an abbey but is now turned into a museum.

Ghost At The Internet Shop by JoJorocks

A brief explanation of what computer shop is. A computer shop or internet shop is a place where you can rent a PC to browse the internet or play video games.

The 4th Floor by AussieRedDog

Hey gang, back after a long break. I have a story I want to share. I'm going back only a few years ago to 2017.

Updates On Usual Encounters by Rajine

My ex, Damon (from Shadows Over Sentosa), was born in Sicily and came to Australia when he was very young.
