Old Man In House


This is my first story...

It happened last year December (2010) when I went to visit my boyfriend in JHB there were quite a bit of stories I want to tell you that happened in this December but I will start with the ones that gave me chills

At my boyfriend's I did not like the bathroom there and did not use the toilet or take a bath when my boyfriend wasn't home. I got that feeling that someone was watching me the whole time (it was one of those long bathrooms). One day I had to take a bath early because my boyfriend and I were going out so I thought well its day light and I will be quick and boy was I, I had just run my bath water and got in with my back to the toilet and me facing the door and just as I lay back to relax when I heard the sound of someone grunting and peeing (the first time I went into that bathroom alone). I jumped of fright washed the necessary and got out I think it was like 15 seconds I ran out of the bathroom to my boyfriend's mother to tell her what had happened. She told me that the old man that lived there before had died on the toilet of a heart attack and his wife died in the main bedroom in her sleep and their daughter hanged herself place unknown.

I were so freaked out when my boyfriend came home I told him what had happened and he told me a few days before I arrived he was sleeping in the living room one night and he felt like someone was trying to wake him up and the next moment he was flung across the room like in a fight he was literally lifted from the couch and threw across the room the woke up and called his mother and in the moment she walked in the room turns ice cold

Another day me and my boyfriend's mother were alone at home and watching TV and talking we suddenly heard 3 or more children running up and down the hallway on the wood floor and laughing and when we went into the hallway the was nothing

Also we took his 2 sisters and brother for Christmas shopping and as we got into the street the children screamed when we asked what happened they told us there was an old bold man with a golden front tooth waving at them from our room 2 weeks later we found the funeral pamphlet of the old man in the top of the closet and he looked just like the guy the children described we were totally freaked out.

That is it for now will write again soon and tell you more of what happened that December

Wow, scary story. But I would also like to question the age of the author, it just seems a little suspicious to me. I could be wrong 😳

Geeez Louise, that house sure has seen it's share of trauma. Did your boyfriend's mother know all of that information before moving in or did she do the research to find out on her own? And to have been tossed across the room as you slept is a very big deal. I wouldn't even go back inside after that!

Thank you for sharing and welcome to YGS.

That is seriously scary, I have read quite a few stories in this site but your one sends chills down my spine. (Or maybe its the air conditioner?)
The man that was smiling at the children; was he the same one that died of a heart attack?
