I am 24 and am not a religious or spiritual person. I have lived in my house for over 10 years, and have never felt or experienced anything supernatural or felt anything strange in any of the rooms in my house, or anywhere else for that matter.
It was about 11AM and I had just stepped out of the shower, and had dried and dressed. It's the summer time so my siblings are not in school, and everyone sleeps in, so I just assume they are home. I opened the bathroom door and was looking in the mirror, messing with my hair, when I see the reflection of my sister run by from the kitchen to the dining room. She is 13 and is always trying to scare me. So thinking I now had the upper hand, I withdrew into the bathroom and closed the door. Waiting her out for about a minute until she got bored and gave herself up, but there's nothing, not a breath, footstep, or giggle. From around the corner I open the door and stick my hand out waving at her, knowing she is hiding in the dining room. Then I take the 4 steps that it takes to get to my room from the bathroom quickly never turning the corner to acknowledge that she is still hiding from me. I get to my room and lie there for a minute or two, and I call her phone.
In the background, I can hear her friends laughing, which is when I realize that she is not home. I feel sick, and my stomach is knotted up, and I already know the answer but I ask her if she is at home. She tells me that she hasn't been home since yesterday. I call everyone else in my family and ask if they are home or have been home. But I am the only one. Now I am not easily scared, but the fact is, I didn't think I saw a ghost, I thought it was my sister. Only after I found out that no one was home but me, did I get that sick feeling in my gut. I don't know what I saw in the mirror, but it was moving. And it had to be moving because I was standing still and saw it. I saw long black hair and brown clothing, but no face. The only thing I can think of is that there has been digging in front of my house, both construction and my mom is having a fountain/mini-pond put in in front of the house.
Could we have disturbed someone? Has anyone ever experienced anything similar to this? I would love to know. That's why I stumbled upon this site. Let me know guys, it feels horrible to be uneasy in your own home. Thanks.
