Real Ghost Stories

Face in the Mirror


My boyfriends house has a lot of history in it. His brothers, and sister, as well as his parents have all had unexplained things happen. Weird feelings, seeing things out of the corner of your eye, and so on. I've also had a few strange things happen to me. But the one that stands out most is the one that happened about 7 years ago. We Lived in the attic of his parents home, which was a large 4 bedroom house. I always felt a little uncomfortable when I was alone in the house as if someone was watching me. Never felt unsafe, just... Not alone.

So one night, I woke up at about 2am to go pee. I checked on the baby, who slept upstairs in the (finished) attic with us, and sleepily climbed the stairs down to the bathroom. I sat on the toilet with my eyes only half open, looking into the mirror. I nearly lost my breath when I looked up and saw a face. It wasn't a human face, it looked like an old Roman statue. It was white, and looked as if it was carved out of plaster, The hair was curly and the eyes were just hollow, it wasn't scary looking, but it frightened me because... Umm well there aren't supposed to be statue faces in the mirror! Haha.

When I told my boyfriend and his parents about it, they just kind of looked at each other and shrugged their shoulders. I convinced myself that I was just over tired and didn't really see anything, but the things that continued to happen in the house really made me think twice about my theory.

I've got plenty more to share with you guys. Thanks for reading!

Hi Skeptical, thanks for sharing your story. That would certainly give anyone a good fright! I wonder if your other stories take place in the same house, sounds like maybe. But hurry up! I can't wait to read your other experiences, especially if they are anything like this one! It was really good!

I read your story. Interesting. Some unseen hosts do this to scare us humans. They are actually creatures but they can take a shape of what ever they like.
take care.

Very interesting! That's creepy I enjoyed your story. I had a similar experience myself I was in the bathroom looking in the mirror until I saw the air going all funny then the air made a boy the boy was a teenager who was a ghost. He has been in my dreams a week before this had happened. How strange is that! I enjoyed reading your story it was really interesting thanks for sharing it with us. 😊
