This is my first story and there should be many more. Some info about me. I live in Newcastle, England. I have had many ghost encounters that go back to when I was a child. I am 16 and the house that I live in has a ghost in it as me and my mam have had experiences in it. Nothing much just cold spots, noises all that but this is the case of an apparition.
This happened in 2010. Anyway, I was upstairs in my room listening to music when I heard the house phone ringing. Then I heard my mam answering it, then I heard my mam shout something to me so I went on the landing and asked her what she had said. She told me that a close family friend had died and me and my mam were really upset. My uncle was upset as it was his girlfriend, so we went round his house and found out what had happened. She had went to a friend's house where she got talked into taking heroin which killed her. My uncle had seen her as she was leaving her house to go to the friends, that was the worst part, anyway.
It was a week after she had died, it was about 1:00am in the morning and when I woke up I seen a dark figure standing in the doorway to my room. I knew straight away that it was the family friend saying goodbye. The next day I mentioned this to my mam and to my surprise she told me she had seen the exact same thing. This was weird as this happened on the morning and there was no other communication between us until the morning.
She was closer to my mam as they would buy each other gifts and my mam said she seen her in more detail.
