Hey, my names Leah and I'm 16 from the UK. I have never written about my ghost experiences and only ever talk to my close friends about what I see, so I am pretty new to this kind of thing. I am going to share my most recent stories as I have lots of past stories that I am not fully able to tell in full detail as I feel I am not ready.
Anyway, in 2009 I moved house as my dad had a new girlfriend with a daughter and we needed a bigger house for enough room for us all to live. The house I moved to and still live in is only 4 years old now. One day I was over at my friends house over the road who is quite a few years older than me and she told me about what used to be under the house before it was built. She said that the houses are built on an old mining place and lots of people died down the mines in the olden days.
When I first moved in I heard some things but never really thought anything of it as they were only small things that happened rarely like banging, or footsteps, and it was only until about a year ago that I started to see a young man. He was dressed in old fashioned clothes, with a dark flat cap and looked scruffy and dirty. As if he had been in a mine shaft all day.
The first time I saw him I was washing my hair over the sink when I looked up in the mirror and saw him looking at me from behind. Obviously I got a bit creeped and turned around to see if it was my imagination. But he was still stood looking at me as if I couldn't see him. So I ran out of the bathroom scared and tried to forget about it.
I then saw him a few weeks later, but I was downstairs this time. I just made myself some tea as I had been at my boyfriends house, after cooking it I went to the dinning room put the plate on the table and pulled out the chair, as I pulled it, it wouldn't budge. I thought what the hell is happening and looked at the front to see the man slouching in the chair as if he was tired. I moved back and he got up and just ran away like I'd done something to him.
I haven't seen him since. Why do you think he liked watching me? And why did he run away and not come back?
