The Old Woman in a Nightgown


About 6 or 7 years ago, I came out of our bathroom and I was not expecting what I saw. I had not been thinking of ghosts or anything scary earlier in the evening and I never believed in ghosts. I do now. I was sitting in the kitchen with my parents and brothers and I had to go to the toilet. When I walked out of the toilet, I saw a old woman standing right by the stairs and my bedroom. She wore a nightgown and curlers and she looked very pale. I was not that scared, because she seemed very calm. I think I was in shock. Suddenly she disappeared.

Then I went in my bedroom for the night and I looked everywhere to see if I could see her. She wasn't there and I went to bed. I fell asleep and when the clock turned 4, I woke up, sweaty and scared. I was in shock. I just fell asleep again, because I was thinking I was just scared because of what I had seen in the evening. I was wrong...

I never slept in that room alone again, because I always woke up at 4, sweaty and in shock. I slept in the guestroom and I never woke up there. I also heard noises from everywhere in the house, but I never told my father, because I thought it would sound silly.

Luckily we moved.

Yeah ghosts come unexpectedly. It sounds like a ghost they look so clear. Just like normal people really and they are more paler. I have seen ghosts and I have heard voices and noises from some. I know what your going through I understand. It can come as a big shock when you see one cause they come unexpectedly. They can't hurt you! 😊
