Hide And Seek Hauntings


So it was a sunny day in August and Me, my little brother and our two cousins were playing hide and seek. Very not spooky right? This isn't the first time I've seen a ghost but that is different. Anyway, it was my turn to count so I picked a really obvious place so that I could see everything. So I counted to 100 and looked around and I thought I saw one of my cousins. So I followed them into the darkest corner of the little wood behind my Gran's house.

I looked into the corner but my cousin wasn't there; it was a white figure. It was staring at me like it was happy to see me. It was very tall with long flowing hair. I knew it was a woman. She opened her mouth to say something but no words came out. We stared at each other for about 5 minutes until she walked past me with her hand out to touch me but she hesitated and disappeared.

I found my relatives very easily as they were together. So after, I went to see my Great-Gran who lived there since 1930 and asked her about this woman. She said it was my late Great-Great Grandmother who lived there before and that she had always wanted Great-Great Grandchild.

I was shocked about this. I went straight to the place where I had seen her. My Great-Great Grandmother was no where to be seen. I haven't seen her since but I have heard some strange sounds around the corner but I don't particularly want to do there again. Why? Because is shocks we that she knew who I was so I feel if I have a connection with my late relatives.

I like this story! (I didn't take it that you were afraid just shocked). I'd be shocked too! How neat that you were able to quickly identify the spirit and she was family! I'm glad she got to meet you, maybe you were what she was waiting for before she could move on! ❤

This is a very sweet story. What I wouldn't give to have the opportunity to see one of my ancestors! I'm glad that this experience wasn't unpleasant, though it may have been frightening and puzzling at first. She sounds like a lovely woman.

I agree with the others. This does not sound like a hostile haunting in any way. I think she really wanted to say something to you but she was afraid of scaring you. Hopefully she will be able to move on, now that she has seen you?

From what I can make of this I don't think that you should really be afraid of her, she sounds like she is watching over you with love, and if you acknowledge her and her love I am sure she will be like a family guardian angel to you and your family. 😊

Hi Marcus. That's a touching story, and it seems like she was really quite happy to see you. Try not to be afraid! Seeing a deceased family member is a blessing, and one that not too many people are lucky enough to encounter 😁
