Although I have been a reader of the stories on this site for a while, this is my first story. It may not be amazing but it was a very scary experience. Here goes...
Back in 2008 (when I was 18) my dad became seriously ill, as it was just me and him in the house I became his care-giver. As he got worse he was in and out of hospital and finally lost his battle with the illness in 2009. 3 weeks after the funeral I found out I was pregnant with my daughter (now 19 months old) we moved into our new flat when I was 6 months pregnant. I have always had paranormal experiences since I was very young and felt as soon as we moved in that there was something there with us but never felt it to be a bad energy. Well on to the day/night of this experience.
My daughter had just started walking and went to a photo of my dad and said "cuddle grandad" then laughed and went to the bedroom. I found this weird as she would never normally take any notice of the photo. Later that night she kept crying for grandad (bear in mind that I didn't find out that I was pregnant until 3 weeks after his funeral) so I got her in the bed with me and put on a dvd to settle her.
After a while she sat herself up, looked and pointed to the bedroom door and called for grandad again, so I looked over to where she was pointing and there was the shadow of what looked like a man just standing there! This really scared me and like a kid I pulled the bed cover over us and looked away. When I looked again the 'shadow man' had moved to my daughter's cot then came to the bedside where she was sitting and kneeled down beside her! Although while this was happening it didn't in any way feel like a bad energy, I found very disturbing/scary. To this day it is still stuck in my mind and I can't help thinking was it my dad visiting his daughter and grandaughter?
Well that was my first story I will try replying to any comments left.
