Real Ghost Stories

Mr. Ghostly


So I lived in the same house until I was twelve. The entire time I lived in the house it was haunted. The earliest sign I remember is when my older sister and I were upstairs in our room talking and someone would slam our bedroom door open even though it was latched. We grew to call him Mr. Ghostly. (Keep in mind I was like four or five at the time.)

Every once in a while you could hear him walking up and down the stairs between the first and second floor. You could hear him sit on the couch and open drawers in the kitchen then head back upstairs. The day after Christmas my parents told us they were getting a divorce and it seemed like after that the activity from Mr. Ghostly occurred more often.

My dad had already moved out, but a couple days before my mom moved out I woke up to a shadow on my door. I know I wasn't dreaming which is what everyone kept telling me when I tried to tell them. My families are the only ones that believed me. Well the shadow on my door was like a tall man, I couldn't see much detail, but I could make out the body and face. When I sat up a bit in my bed I saw the head turn towards me and it was like he sat there and stared at me for just about a minute and then he turned around and left. After he left I heard the familiar footsteps down the stairs and through the living room.

The day we went to move out I went up to my room and told him he could go with us. (My mom got mad at me for that, but I was never threatened by him and I didn't think it would be the same in the new house.) Just a couple days ago I got on my laptop and apparently he made a video on my webcam while I wasn't there.

And now he goes back and forth with me between my dad's and mom's. It freaks my pets out at both houses though.

Yup, just reminding me he's still with me. 😁 After we moved I wasn't sure if he followed or not. Apparently he did.

Ok. That was cool! And I do get it, tabby315. I don't feel anything bad about your friend Mr. Ghostly at all. I would have felt it by now if there was. Thanks. 😊 ❤

i know just how you feel. Only, with our family it was my mother that always knew when a spirit or ghost was there. She talked to them like it was you or me standing there. We never thought it was odd but once we got into 3rd or 4th grade we knew not to advertise too much. Probably when we each got old enough to stay overnite with friends. You were right in asking him if he would like to go with you. I can't wait to see the video. 😊 ❤

Yeah, I was a little freaked out when he stared at me, but I just didn't really feel threatened or anything.

Yeah, the video is still on my computer so I'll put it up. I've always thought he was guarding me, defiantly when my mom met her new guy. It seemed that Mr. Ghostly was purposely trying to scare him. When I have friends around he didn't do as much activity, but when he came it seemed that he moved stuff more and he walked around a lot heavier.

Mr. Ghostly is an adorable nickname for your ghost friend! When there is a lot of stress in a household, spirits react which is why you probably heard a lot more from Mr. Ghostly when your parents were getting divorced. (sorry about that, its a rough time. I've been there too.) Is there anyway you can put the video mr. Ghostly made on this site? I'm sure there are tons of posters who would love to see it, including myself! Thats interesting that he still stays with you between your parent's houses. He must be protecting you! Thank you for sharing!

My sister says she has also seen his shadow and my mom has heard him. Both my sister and I can feel his presence around us, but we don't think he's there to hurt us. My mom did tell me a couple of days ago that before she bought the house they found out some man had died in there.
