Haunted Basement


During one summer it was me my older sister and my cousin Eric. He had come down for the summer and the basement was our little hangout at the time.

We were just downstairs in the basement playing cards and talking then out of no where everybody had gotten quiet and I did not know why. A second later I heard a little girl voice say "look" or "look back there" in my ear, and then my older sister said she saw a black shadow go past my shoulder. So I look in the back of the basement, mind you no one is back there and the lights are off in the back, and then I hear a nail of some sort get dragged across one of the workbenches we have in the back. And then we all hear a ping on the ground look at each other and ran upstairs cause we were scared.

Then 15 minutes later we go back downstairs and check in the back on the floor to see if anything is on the ground and one single nail you would screw to the wall was lying there. We all looked at each other and ran back upstairs and did not bother to turn the front light out. We tried to tell my parents about it but my mom kept denying it saying there was no such thing, but my father he believed us cause he had said he experienced some paranormal events in this house. My mom had said once she saw a white shadow of a little girl in her bedroom doorway but she keeps denying it was something paranormal and she had come up with an excuse for it. To this day she still will not admit that paranormal occurrences can happen. I still get scared going in my basement.

Surya that's fine you don't have to be convinced cause I know what happened you weren't here to experience it like I was so its okay your not convinced. Maika yes I will read your story I would be glad too. No I didn't get my house blessed cause after that happened nothing that scary has happened again in my house. Mimrkki my parents did not build this house no. Well we me and my family have been told a couple people have died in our house one of them being my landlord her son and her husband but I have no clue who the little girl was related too. Well for getting your house blessed or cleaned it depends on how bad the paranormal activity is in your house, sometimes if the activity is bad and you try to bless the house sometimes it can make it worse then it was before. It just depends on the kind of activity that is going on at your house and how bad it is.

Thank you sharing your story. Unfortunately I'm not totally convinced.

That's a freaky encounter! I'd probably be very spooked too. Even if it was just a nail that'd be enough to get me.

I had an encounter not exactly like that in my distant aunt's house before. My cousin told me it was an incubus because it happened when I was sleeping. Told her I was awake. But could you take a moment and read my story? Couldn't really figure out what just happened. By the way, did you get your house blessed or something?

An interesting story. Was the house build by your parents? Do you know if anything has happened in the area or do you know any relatives of yours, that might have died at a young age? The little girl sounds benevolent, can't say much about the dark figure.

I have wondered sometimes, what outcomes people get if they bless/clean their houses someway. Does it help or does it arouse more activity, I don't know. I would probably keep at least myself protected. To me it means praying, but some people clean and protect themselves in other ways.
