First Story by nchristensen

---Note--- these are taken from my social media account and I'll be posting a few of them.

Romantic And Sexual Relationship With A Spirit by CosmicEnigma

This is a subject I have had a very hard time communicating to others and I have yet to find an outlet where it would be met with positive attention. I am somewhat embarrassed but I need to get some of it off my chest and just talk, and I need guidance from anyone whose had or heard of similar exper...

Loopy Nightmares And Out Of Body Experience by shiz98

Yesterday night, it was pretty late when I went to bed - around 3:15 am. Few months ago I started this habit of sleeping late due to work, and sometimes for binge watching Netflix.

The Strange Night by Jb66

Before I go into the story, hello to everyone! I haven't posted a story in a very long time, the reason behind this is things have settled down a lot in our house.

Is A Ghost After Our Son? by Oceana

I recently gave birth to my son. He is a very healthy baby. I set him up a nursery on the ground floor so he can sleep in there without me having to trek up and down stairs with him.

The Fourth Floor Girls Hostel by ssexyca

This story will be a short one, it happened to me and friends when we were living in the school dorm.

Weird Things In My Bedroom by Gh0st_Knight

To those who read my story about the little girl's voice comforting me, this is a sort of sequel.

One ni...

Ghost Angered By New Decor? by User3246

Strange Experience In The Parking Lot by unforgiven1

I've been thinking about posting this story for awhile now but I am worried about not being able to explain it well enough.

Old And New by triden07

Sorry guys, this is a bit of a read. I had to go to SBAH (that is a state hospital in Pretoria) to take my son, T, for tests. As a refresher, T was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis in 2016 (since it's genetic and you are born with it, but it took doctors in this country 9 years and a coma to figure...

When Evil Is Your Salvation by valkricry

I'm going to start this back in January 2019. That isn't the true beginning of it, but when it became very apparent that something was not right with me, and I was becoming more depressed.

The Haunted Church Basement by GabriellSelena

Haunted Area? by bewhatmay
