Let me start off by saying this. The elementary school I used to go to was in New Jersey. It was a catholic school. I have lots of friends there that I have now on facebook. Anyway, I've had lots of encounters happen to me but these ones are by far the scariest. So before I start, let me warm you up on the topic. You all know what a spring show is right? It's those shows the school puts on in spring. All of them have singing and stuff. Oh and the ghost experience might be linked to this. Right when the building was created, it was made into a bowling alley. There was a kid who was really good at the bowling, until, surprisingly, he died. Now the rumor has been spread about strange sightings in the back of the gym and in the downstairs boy's bathroom. Anyway let's start with the encounters.
1st encounter - Ok, so everyone was lining up in the back of the gym for rehearsals. When a class was called, the class splits in half and goes from both the left and the right side of the stage. Now this was, I suppose, the 2nd practice for the show. We were all singing "I just called to say I love you" when I noticed something strange. All of a sudden I felt like there was a presence behind the curtain. Every time the music teacher called a break, I got out of my place and looked around. But this was terrifying! I Looked to my left, and what I saw was a hanged man. And no, I'm not talking about the character from the game Hang Man. I mean a real hanged man. He had Black hair, a brown type of jacket, jeans, and brown kind of shoes. His face was not visible because he was facing downward. I told everyone around me and they started looking at where I was pointing. They were surprised too but they kept their mouth shut. When we left the gym, everyone started to freak out.
2nd encounter - This was more of a thought than an encounter. But it was so real, I couldn't deny it. I brought a sandwich and some juice for lunch time. I was halfway done when I decided to look at the clock. The clock was above the kitchen window in the cafeteria and the encounter was above the clock. I looked over and it said no in lots of letters. My friend said he saw the wall say, "Get out, or I will kill you in 3 days!" Well my friend always lies about the paranormal, so he couldn't be trusted. But I was a hundred percent sure that the words I said were on that wall!
3rd encounter - Ok this one was not scary but it was kind of weird. It was the closest encounter, as in the encounter was really close to me. Oh and by the way, this was the same hour as the 2nd encounter. After lunch, I went to wash my hands and I kept looking at the roof, and I saw a shadow being walk across the water pipes that ran the urinals. And I mean literally walking! He didn't spread out his arms or anything! He just casually walked across the pipes without any problem. Then, when he was halfway through the pipes, he dissapeared. Then I ran out of the bathroom as fast as I could!
4th encounter - This one was by far the weirdest of my 4. This one is about the classroom door opening all on it's own. I knew that no one was outside, because if the door opens, one of us quickly rushes to the door to see if anybody is there, and we find nothing! I knew there was a window next to the boy's bathroom on the 2nd floor which is where the classroom is, but the window is at least 20-40 feet away from the door. And besides, the door was closed. None of us saw the door knob twisting or see a shadow in the window. The door just keeps opening all on it's own!
If anyone has any clue as to what this is, I need the information. I need to tell my other mates the story of this ghost. The mystery is about to be solved but I need your help! Please comment and tell me what this strange entity is! Is it the red haired kid or is it the hanged man? Please help me so I can tell my friends so they don't become freaked out too!
