I grew up in a small town (more projects than anything else, we lived in the "new homes"), before moving to a small farming community when my mother divorced my father. We moved in with my mother's new husband in his farm house. This house had all the makings of a haunted home. The basement had a dirt floor room, very low ceilings, the only thing we had down there were shelves for when we canned. I rarely ever went down there.
I had a small room downstairs (that was previously used as an office), while my parents and my brothers' room was upstairs. I always felt uneasy being in that home, just looking at it gives me the goose bumps to this day.
A couple of things happened... My brother, step-father and I were in the living room one afternoon and all the sudden we heard the upstairs toilet flush and the lid slam. My heart was pounding. My step-dad went on to say "I guess they have to go too!" I was not amused. Another incident occurred when I was looking in my closet (it was upstairs, because my room did not have one) and I saw a man with long hair, a flannel shirt and jeans walk out of the bathroom and into the wall. I think I was so shocked at what I saw, it almost felt like I couldn't control my body. I walked down the stairs and into the kitchen and just stood there dumbfounded. My step-dad walked in and asked what was wrong, and I said "I think I just saw a ghost..." I explained to him what I saw and he told me that in the late 70s and man fell into a wood chipper at a local company who used to live in the house, he was friends with him. He then went on to tell me that he thinks he sees things all the time. I was very happy to move out of that house.
This may sound silly, but even thought I get so scared about the supernatural, I am so interested in it. I just recently bought a house with my fiance and I just wonder if anything will happen here. I've read a lot of stories that started out with "everything was normal until..."
