Evil Granny


One night, I was at my grandma's house with my mom. My mom was in bed and me and my brother were staying up late. It was like 3:30 am, when me and my brother were getting tired. So I decided to get a glass of warm milk to help me sleep while Courtney, my brother, went to his room.

When I was done. I went to the hallway to make my way to my room, when all of a sudden I saw a woman standing in the hallway. She looked like she was in her 30's or 40's, but the thing that freaked me out was the fact that I could see right through her. I wanted to move but I couldn't, I wanted to scream, but I couldn't. I just stood their frozen.

Just when I thought things couldn't get any freakier. I saw a smile slowly form on her face. Then she started walking towards me, walking became jogging then she was running with a devilish grin on her face. I just watched in horror. Then she ran faster and faster until she started screaming "Run child run". After that she started laughing like a devil or something. So I took her advice and I turned the other way and ran like hell. While I was running I was screaming my lungs out. I guess my mom heard me screaming, because I ran into her in the hall, scared as hell. I was just trembling in her arms the whole night with the sound of her laugh in my head.

That night my mom was crying because I was trembling so much. Finally she asked me what was wrong with me. So I told her everything, and the more I told, the more worried she got. Once I was done, she told me about her mom, and that was who I saw in the hallway.

From that day forward I would just tremble with the sight of that house.

Hi thanks for the story, but what did she tell you about your grandma? 😕 Why would your grandma have so much about her to make her want to scare you? Again thanks for the story 😊

She told you to run, perhaps she was just trying to scare you rather than harm you?

My grandparents, grandfather in particular was dreadful for that, always used to hide behind doors and jump out on me in the dark.

Maybe your grandmother just liked scaring children?

one last thing a 3rd ghost ran into me they can't hurt you they can scare you don't forget they can walk right through you so don't be scared. That's what happened to the ghost which ran into me. I was shocked and started shouting at it cause it got me angry and mad and it scared the hell out of me so I started shouting at it telling it to not do that again or it be sorry. 😐

you stud there and you couldn't move or scream
that must of been the shock of it. I have seen 2 ghosts one I couldn't move the 2nd one I saw I could. Thanks for sharing your story I enjoyed reading it. The ghosts I seen were so real they looked so real. I recognise them from my dreams they look like normal people to me. I can't tell there ghosts in my dreams.

Dear Ghostlyfigure6857,

Unless your grandmother was a mean prankster in real life, it doesn't seem like the usual type of grandmotherly reaction to a grandchild. I found it a bit odd that your mother did not ask you immediately what happened, but instead she cried first while holding you. I am also wondering why she did not immediately tell you about your grandmother, but maybe like me, she didn't want to frighten you either by admitting to you that your grandmother would actually frighten her own grandchild. That in itself is frightening. I wouldn't be trembling over a house or even over granny, instead I would send granny over to the other side as I feel sorry for her as she is obviously in your own words "scared as hell" in her own self-made hell.--Abby

when did you leave the house after this encounter? Did your mother ever explain why she delt it was her mother and what made her feel her mother could be so violent towards you? Very intense and frightening.

Wow, an angry grandma. Sorry that your first experience with the paranormal had to be so intense. Maybe Meg is right and your grandmother wanted to warn you of something.

Peace, Love, and Luck be with you.

wow,how scary would that have been hey! Not a good interaction with your Grandma. Was she a good lady, or not? Maybe it wasn't her, or if it was, she might have been trying to tell you something.
