I've been reading a lot of stories these past few days (all very interesting) and finally I've decided to share one of mine. Before I go on telling my stories, I just want to say that I live in Italy (Siracusa). Since 464, there have been tombstones under half of the city until now and there are still abandoned house standing that are from 1600. (I'm actually thinking of going into one of them because they say it's very, very haunted and then I'll tell you if anything goes on.)
Since I was small, I could feel ghosts but now I'm starting to see and hear them. So this story happened when I was 14. My cousins from Canada came to visit and they stayed at my grandfather's house for 3 weeks. The second night that they were here I slept over and that night we did not sleep at all.
Since my grandfather was very old he would sleep in the living room instead of his room because he couldn't breathe. So since all the paranormal stuff would happen mostly in my grandfather's room, we put my cousin's (let's call her Danny) laptop on record for about an hour around 12:30 am. When we went to listen to it there were so many different voices and also something that was playing with the computer (it was typing).
Since they knew we were playing around with them, they began to get very mad and we began to hear things and the light of the bathroom was switching on and of very fast. My other cousin (let's call him Ciro) said that he saw a man with long black hair and a long black beard a few times in the hallway (these events stared happening around 3:00am until 5:30).
Also, my poor uncle was sleeping and all of a sudden he said something woke him up, got his mattress lifted it up and then the thing flew into the wall. So he came to us telling us to stop doing what we were doing, but the damage was already done because we had stopped long time ago but since they were mad we couldn't do anything anymore.
So since my cousins and I were so scared we decide to go downstairs and just stay outside until day (my grandfather lived in an apartment on the third floor with no elevator). As soon as we were about to go down the stairs, the lights all go off and on the ground floor we hear about 3 or 4 kids laughing, so we freaked out and ran back inside. A lot of other stuff happened but I just can't remember anymore.
Another story that I would like to quickly tell everybody actually happened a few days ago. My friend and I were walking at Corso. Umberto (a street name at Siracusa) and since it was very late, there was nobody at all in site, just me and her. All of a sudden I began to get this strange feeling as if someone was following us so I kept looking behind me. My friend (we'll call her Mel) asked me what was wrong, so I told her and as soon as I told her we heard footsteps walking behind us.
Mely started to kind of freak out. All of a sudden she feel something touching her leg but she didn't want to turn around. At a certain point we both looked back at the same time and we both saw something walk onto the sidewalk and disappear. It was dressed with old clothes, probably around the 1800's, but for some reason you couldn't see the head. We were so excited to have seen the same thing.
Whatever that thing was it just kept following us until I told it to stop because I was getting very mad. After that my feeling that someone was following us went away and my friend calmed down.
