Lady With The Baby


This happened when I was about 8 years old. We moved to a small mining town with a very small population. We went and looked at the houses there and there was this house that my parents decided on that gave me this creepy feeling. I still remember it like it was yesterday there are feelings that you can shake off and then there are the ones that stick with you for the rest of youre life.

Now this house was a 3 bedroom place there with a pond outside the yard was not big at all. The one room in the house had me frightened I did not like to walk past it or even go in there. It ended up being my sister's room, she is 3 years younger than me. When ever I had to go in there I will have all of these mixed emotions, anger, crying, and feeling outraged. The one night my sister came to my room crying, and she tells me the lady is standing at her bed. I told her that she can sleep with me in my room.

The house had a outside room which we stored our bikes and toys that could not fit in the rooms. The one day me and my sister wanted to get our bikes and I told her I am not going in that room she was pleading with me to get our bikes so I decided to get it and the image I saw there has stayed with me.

There in the outside room on a rocking chair (we did not own a rocking chair) was this lady sitting. She had a white dress on that looked like a wedding dress, there was blood on her dress with a knife in between her breasts. She was cradling a baby and she was singing a song for the baby. Her eyes were full of sorrow all of her emotions I felt them, I stood there crying I felt her fear.

I got the bikes and got out of there.

A few nights after that the neighbours domestic worker was shouting and going crazy. Now here the people believe in the tokkelossie and they will put bricks under their beds to give it height. So the next morning the worker comes to me and tells me that she knows I am able to see things (I have never spoken to this lady I don't know her and she doesn't know me) and she wants me to go and have a look in her room. At first I thought she is loosing it. I told her she must have me confused with somebody else. She left and a couple of minutes later came back with the lady she is working for. So the lady asked me if I could come with them they just want to show me something. I wasn't scared of them going to hurt me or anything I have met the children next door so I was comfortable with going that side. The moment I went past the outside room where the domestic worker sleeps I felt this negative almost distracting presence of something evil. I told the lady how I was feeling and at that moment I fell to the ground as if somebody or thing pushed me. Needless to say they didn't stay there very long after that.

The activity started to happen less at our house also after the day I saw the lady in the rocking chair. We moved after about 4 months or so.

raven86: why I stood there I can't tell you I don't know myself. What I know is this was not my imagination, or my mind playing tricks on me and it is not something I put together. No offence was taken 😉 everybody is entitled to their own opinions,

I don't understand how you saw this and didn't just run, you 'stood there crying', despite the sudden appearence of this very vivid and gory 'ghost', for how long?

Why didn't you just run?

How come you were calm enough to retrieve the bikes following/during such a horrific visitation, which would leave most people totally traumatised?

To be honest it sounds more like something you put together in your mind, as children do, to explain your feelings of a presence, then 'saw' in your imagination, maybe with your sisters input, because you were in a situation where you felt uneasy.

No offence meant. Good story

MandyyNicole; My sister was standing outside waiting for me to get the bikes. I remember when I turned around to close the door she was gone. Me and my sister are very close. The one day out of the blue my sister asked me about that day when I told her what happened she told me she was always scared of the outside room. My parents did not believe in the paranormal (eventually after a few things that happened to me they did start to believe me) I remember when I saw them I started to pray, I guess in a weird way she was not there to scare me I don't know.
Sheetal: I was still to small to think about getting history on the place.

So did the lady and the baby and the rocking chair just disappear, or...? I find it odd that you saw this, apparently felt her fear, and yet it didn't put you off from grabbing the bikes, you mention grabbing them so casually...
Did you ever tell anyone what you saw? Your parents? Your sister? Where was she when this happened? Did she see it?
