I didn't expect to be writing another ghost story on here so soon. But since having my first story published, I've encountered three more spirits.
The first one I've already posted about in the comment section of my first story; it happened a few days after the story was published. Like I said in my comment, it was an older man who was balding in the front. He was standing by my bedside staring down at me. He got closer than any of the other spirits I've seen. I promised myself I would to take the advice from people on here about asking the spirits what they wanted. That went out the window though and I ran down my hallway again. When I came back to the room, the man was gone.
The second spirit was also an older man; I remember he had on a blue polo shirt and black glasses. He was standing a few feet away from my bed and looking around. I looked at him and told the spirit to leave me alone. He disappeared instantly. I couldn't sleep after that and just thought about what happened. I realized the spirit looked a lot like my great-grandpa. He was even wearing the same thing my grandpa had on in a picture. I don't know if it really could have been him because he died well over 10 years ago in another state. I didn't know him well either; I probably met him only a handful of times.
When I got up the next morning after seeing the spirit, I saw two scratches on my left leg just above the knee. I don't know how they got there. I didn't shave the night before and don't have anything on or near my bed that could have caused it. However, anything could have caused it and I haven't ruled out a natural explanation for it. What do you guys think?
I don't know if this one could be a ghost encounter or not. I decided to put it in here anyway to see what you guys think. It wasn't actually a person but huge beetle-type bugs. I had woken up at around 12:30 at night and looked to the wall on my right where my window was. There I saw three huge beetle-type bugs crawling on my wall. I freaked out and not just because I'm scared of bugs. A few days before, I randomly woke up with five small bug bites on my left leg, so I thought these bugs were real and were the ones that bit me. I jumped up and turned on my light to see they were no longer there. I searched my entire room to see if they were just hiding but I couldn't find them anywhere.
I saw the bugs the night after I encountered the spirit that looked like my great-grandpa. After I saw the bugs, I thought back to what happened with that spirit. I had told him to leave me alone. I know this next question sounds far-fetched but I have to ask it. Do think the spirit was angry with me for telling him to leave? That he made these bug appear before me? Can spirits even do that?
The final encounter happened last night. I've been having trouble sleeping for the last three weeks and have no reason for it. I haven't been able to fall asleep before midnight no matter what I do.
It was around 1:30 am and I was lying in my bed attempting to sleep. I glanced over to my door and saw another figure. I don't remember if it was a man or woman but I'm leaning more toward a woman. This woman seemed to be glowing and had on a white night gown. I remember distinctly that this woman was floating, not walking like other spirits I have seen. She wasn't high off the ground, only a couple of inches at the most. This next part is hard to explain but I'll try my best. When I first saw her she was floating toward me then she disappeared for a millisecond. She appeared again by the end of my bed but she didn't stop there. She continued floating toward my wall. I sat up and asked her who she was. She then disappeared again and I didn't see her after that. For the next 10 minutes or so, I felt like someone was watching me. I had been scared so I didn't move at all until the feeling went away.
My cat also has been acting incredibly strange for the last few days. He stares and perks his ears at things that aren't there. He's chased something around the hallway and stared at the same spot every night. Maybe it's just because he has better vision and hearing than humans and I just don't see or hear what he does.
I am getting tired and scared of these spirits appearing before me. I can't sleep with my door shut anymore because I'm afraid one of them will show up. I can't help but open my eyes every few minutes to see if someone is watching me. I can't sleep without my cat on my bed because whenever he is with me, I don't see spirits. I don't know what to do. I'm afraid I'll encounter a really violent spirit one day.
