When I was young I lived in Providence Rhode Island in an old colonial house that was built around the late 1800's. I and my family lived on the second floor of the 2 story building and my cousins lived on the first floor of the building. There were these stairs in the back that connected to my cousins porch.
So one night I bothered my sisters and my parents were furious cause I woke up my cousins, sisters, and my parents so they made me stay in the back were the stairs were right next to the upstairs porch. I fell asleep crying but I was woken up in the middle of the night with this figure looking at me while I was still lying there. The figure was shaped as a middle aged man and just stood on the 3rd step going down and the 27th step going up
And after I told one of my sisters about the figure, so we slept near the stairs one night and I woke up and looking for my sister I see her crying in the corner. When I asked her what's wrong, she pointed at the stairs and then when I looked I saw the figure. It was on the 1st step going down 30th step going up. After that we were frightened and ran screaming to our rooms hiding under our blankets.
I and my sister tried to tell my sister but she wouldn't believe us but when I told my Mom and Dad they told me that it's all a nightmare and I'm seeing things. But the stories from that house still haunt me until this very day. The house could have been built on war grounds or multiple people could have died in that very home I once lived in.
