This happened about a year ago while I was staying at my friend's house in Scotland. Now my friend's house is huge and creepy with knights in armour and big marble statues.
One night while staying in one of many guest bedrooms I couldn't sleep. I kept randomly feeling freezing cold and then boiling hot and I had stomach cramps. I was just about to get up and complain when I saw the weirdest thing. A man walking around the room but he had no legs up to his knees. It looked like he was walking around on stumps. I couldn't move! After what felt like hours, I ran to the bathroom and was sick. Also when I looked in the mirror I was pale and clammy and my eyes looked scary and crazy.
I came down later in extreme panic. As I ran down the stairs I shouted for them to come. I repeated the tale to them and I could see the laughter in their eyes. The only person to listen was a close friend of mine called Tara who watched me with eyes like saucers. She was so interested that she offered to help me find out who this person was and why he had no legs.
Later we looked up the old documents of the house and what we found was strange. It turns out that not that long ago the house had had it floor raised by two feet to create more space in the room below. After I thought about it, the things he had been wearing and the wat his hair had been cut had been old fashioned. We came to the conclusion that he had to have lived here before the floor had been raised.
So it turned out that he actually had legs. The reason I had not seen them was that he had been walking on the ghost floor two feet below my carpet. A few months after this happened, I was told that this happened again to another guest later in the year but he saw this man in the daytime. Soon after he got ill, vomiting, temperature, fainting and having fits.
Please comment on these strange events.
