My recent story that I wrote was a very recent one that has happened but I am going to tell you what has actually happened to me and my mum especially in my own house.
I was only about 13 or 14 and I was getting ready to go to bed. As I switched off the light and turned around I saw a shadow shaped as a little girl. I was scared but I thought I was imagining it.
The Next day I told my mum about what I saw and she just said it must of been my little sister so I shrugged it off and thought the same.
Until a couple of weeks later my mum had got up to go to the bathroom when she saw "what she thought was my little sister" run past into the bathroom. My mum waited for ages and shouted "are you ready in there" but no one answered her. So my mum got up to check to see if she was there as she reached the bathroom my little sister wasn't there and she didn't see her go back past her bedroom either?
My mum went into my sisters bedroom and she was fast asleep.
Another time was when all my family was sitting in the living room and I was on the floor.
My dog was in the hallway and he just started barking for no reason at all. I turned around and told him to be quiet, but as I looked where he was looking there was this weird dark figure standing on the stairs. As I looked my dog was still barking and growling, I didn't know what to think who or what could of this been?
After this I started to believe in it and I couldn't believe what I saw, but it made me even more believe because dogs can see and sense ghosts or paranormal stuff too. So that freaked me out even more.
