My family can see Ghosts and Spirits and I always hoped that I could see a Ghost or Spirit. Before my encounter I believed in Paranormal Activity but my own experience was freaky. This experience happened on 25th February 2012 at 9pm.
I was home alone sitting in my room reading, when suddenly a cold chill went down my spine. I thought 'oh well, the heater may of just turned off', but what made me confused was that the chills kept coming and going. After about 10 minutes, I was all relaxed again, there were footsteps coming up the stairs. I knew they were footsteps because the stairs always squeak when somebody steps on a certain step. It could of not been my dog or cats because my cats always mioaw when they come upstairs and my dog was in my bedroom with me. I decided to open the door and see if someone was still walking up the stairs. I opened my door and looked down the stairs but no one was there. My immediate reaction was " My imagination is playing tricks on me". I went downstairs to get a drink and some food.
All was fine until I walked up the stairs. When I was walking up the stairs (it was dark by the way) I saw a figure of a man looking down at me from the top of the stairs. I thought it was a intruder who got into my house through my window. I threw my glass at this figure, but the drink went straight through the man. As I was staring at the figure, it faded away. I was so scared I ran into my room (with my dog, since she follows me all the time) and shut the door. I didn't come out until my parents where back. I never go upstairs in the dark now because I'm afraid I will see that figure again.
