I have been visiting this site for about a month and I keep meaning to send a story but every time I try it's been disabled.
I have a few stories but I'll tell you the most recent as it just happened last night and scared the wits right out of me.
My boyfriend bought his house in July of 2009. He had brought me by the house but I hadn't had the opportunity to go through it until he moved in. I'm not sure if it's the law everywhere but where we live there is a disclosure clause in your purchase and sale agreement that states that if someone died there or if you have ever had a mold problem or a grow op in your house you have to tell the buyer. So anyway, after his offer was excepted he decided to tell me that a man had died in the house. That's it, we have no other information. No name, no age and no cause of death. I've tried to research our house but nothing comes up so I think it's safe to assume it wasn't murder. However, there is a dark stain on the floor in the office.
I moved in with my boyfriend in January and since then strange things have been happening. I always feel like I'm being watched, especially when I'm in the shower. Also when I'm in the shower I hear a bang from the living room. I used to think it was the pipes but I never hear it when my boyfriend is in the shower and he never hears it when I'm in the shower. Yesterday I heard it again but I wasn't in the shower and it wasn't on.
My boyfriend takes forever in the shower. Ordinarily, that would mean that by the time I get in there I should be getting cold water or at least have to turn it up a few times to keep myself warm. Not at my house. I have to keep turning it down because my darn ghost is trying to scald me!
When I'm doing chores around the house I like to have the television on for background noise, but if I'm doing the dishes in the kitchen and I make too much noise, my television automatically turns up and when I stop it returns to its normal volume.
None of this bothers me, well except for the peeping Tom part, but I can live with it.
My boyfriend recently got a promotion at work. During his training he's been working all sorts of weird shifts and its been very difficult for him to get a sleep pattern down. Last Thursday night he worked 2330-0800, he was off Friday but then he had to go back in on Saturday for 0630. He came home from working his night shift on Friday morning, slept for a few hours and got up again so he would be tired enough to go to bed that night.
We both went to bed that night around 1700 (9 o'clock). At around 0300 I heard him get up, put pants on and go across the hall to the office. He hadn't been feeling well earlier on so I got up to check on him, he said that he was fine and just couldn't sleep anymore. I left him there and I went back to bed.
Here is where my story starts to creep me out. My house is not old, maybe 35 years ish, but the floors creak really bad. My boyfriend just has to walk past our bedroom and the creaking floor will wake me up. This also happens every time he comes to bed after me as the floor boards creak in our bedroom as well. He also always asks if I'm awake and I always want to say "Yes, of course I'm awake you bonehead!", but I don't.
Anyway back to my story. So I go back to bed after checking on him and I fall right back to sleep. About a half hour later, I felt his side of the bed dip like he had come back and laid down again. I even felt myself roll a little closer to him because the change in weight on the bed. I didn't open my eyes, but I thought it was strange because I didn't hear the floor creak nor did he ask if I was awake, but I was half asleep and thought maybe he was being considerate for once.
10 minutes later I felt his side of the bed dip again, like he was getting up again, only this time I sat up immediately to ask him where he was going and I'm all alone. No one was there.
I jumped out of bed to see where he was and he was just coming back up the stairs from getting pizza in the kitchen. Turns out he had never came back to bed!
The next day I was doing laundry and just as I was about to open the bedroom door it opened and I felt a cold gust of wind. It had been chilly that day so all of my windows were closed, but it was not cold enough to warrant turning the heat on.
After this I decided that I was going to have a nice little chat with my ghost. I told him that I was perfectly fine with sharing the house with him as long as he didn't try to scare me, stayed out of the shower and no more sleeping with me in bed. I also told him no ghost parties, no inviting any ghost friends and if either of my dead uncles were to show up (hey you never know right?) he was to let them in. Other then that he was welcome to stay, but if he messed up he would be gone before he could blink. I even offered to convey any messages for him or help him find the light if he needed it.
Things seemed to be fine until last night. Now I will freely admit that I could have been asleep, but it just felt so real. I was in bed with my boyfriend, who was asleep and snoring loudly. I opened my eyes and looked toward the door and I see a dark shadowy figure standing there looking at us. As soon as I looked at him he started coming toward us. My heart started to race and I tried to turn my head away and scream but I couldn't move. All that came out of my mouth was a sort of strangled cry. As soon as he was above my head looking directly down at me he disappeared and I could move again. All I could think to do was to tell him that he was banished from my house to an address across the street. I even pictured the house in my mind. Sorry neighbour, I was panicked and it was all I could think to do. When I could finally think logically again, I looked at the clock and I had only been in bed for 40 minutes. I'm not sure how deep into a sleep I could have been, but when I "woke up" I was in the exact same position I had been when I saw it so...
Before last night I have never been scared or felt threatened by our ghost. I don't know if it was him or not, but whatever it is, it's certainly not welcome in my house anymore.
Anyway that's my story. My apologies for it being so long. I should mention that my boyfriend has not expeienced any of this, the ghost just leaves him alone.
