Mysterious Events at Birthday Party


It was about a year since the death of my father's friend (who had only lived down the street from us) and since after his death, weird things had happened around the house like:

* footstep sounds in the hallway

* a sense that somebody was outside

* weird noises in the night

But the weirdest events happened on my birthday. All morning I had been feeling sick for no reason until my friends came around (for a sleep over). Nothing specifically bad happened after that until around night. After me and my 6 friends were full of sugar, one of my friends (sarah) saw something and got freaked out. She said she sensed something around the tent we were sitting in. I got a bit sick in the stomach again so I went outside the tent to our camp fire (which my father set up). But as soon as I got back in one of the two tents, sarah started telling us that she was getting freaked, some of my other friends sensed something too before sarah was but only just admitted it.

So, this leaded us to making a pact, nobody would leave the tent without somebody else. My other friends Shannon and Katrina thought it was weird but they went along with it. We were about to go to bed when mysteriously the tent wouldn't close so everybody went crazy and ran to other tent leaving behind phones, blankets, pillows, etc. Everybody was too afraid to go back for them. Another problem came to hand when the tent window was open, but being chickens everybody stayed inside the tent. Not knowing it, the weirdest part of my birthday was about to take place when, staring wide-eyed out the window I saw a white, cloudy and transparent form of a man holding an screw driver (or an other object, couldn't tell). The man shifted quickly across the window. Of course since my friends were scared enough, I didn't tell them but as soon as I heard my mother checking up on us, me and 3 of my friends ran quickly up the stairs to my bedroom. In the morning I told my friends what I saw, they believed me because they felt the ghost's presence, but they NEVER have came over for a sleep over SINCE!

I'm just so glad that we chose not to watch that horror movie before the events took place. Since after my birthday one of my other friends (emily) told whilst sleeping in my room she heard big, large footsteps down the hallway, she told me "I'm glad you closed your door, if I saw that GOD DAMN ghost down your hallway I would have never slept again!"

Some other events have occurred after my birthday, these are:

* my nephew's bottle levitating

* lights going off in the house

* curtains been pulled down while in the dark

* and still I hear footsteps down the hallway!

PS: this is not the only ghost my family have encountered before!

That is very creepy. I like to talk to ghost. I would have went to the tent with the ghost in it (not inside, but outside of it) and talked to the ghost. The only way I wouldn't is if everyone was asleep but me. That would give me the chills and I barley get much sleep in my own house because there are always ghost peeking into my room at night. 😐

omg that was a scary storie I have never hurd anything like it I'm never sleeping out in a tent ever agen. But I would of grabed a phone before I ran into the other tent. But I want to ask you something. Did the white transpernt man look like your dads friend? If it did then it was probably your dads friend and if it didn't then it was probably someone that died in that house and didn't want to lieve the house and I would of toled my friends the minuit I saw the thing even if they where already freiked out. Because maby they would of belived you any ways omg it was so scary
