Real Ghost Stories

The Clock


I want to relate what happened when I was about 5 years old. I tried so many times to publish this story on other sites, but I couldn't, because my computer was shutting down automatically.

My grandmother loved to take me with her when she went to visits. I loved that too because I get something like candies, dolls, or other things for my age. One day she took me with her at her cousin's home. I will name her cousin Elena. So... My grandmother and Elena were in Elena's room talking about the death of Elena's father. I wasn't passionate of the topic, so I went in the garden.

I was playing with Elena's dog when I heard someone calling out my name. I run to the room when my grandmother and Elena were talking and I asked them who called me. They said that they didn't so I left them talking further. I went to the bathroom. After I get out, I saw a very big clock on the hall. I was staring at it and then I saw that something like steam began to get out of the clock. The steam made a silhouette. I figured out that the silhouette was a man. He asked me something like 'How are you?' I was just a child. I didn't know what a ghost is so I asnwered something like 'I'm fine.'

I went to my grandmother and I told her that a man spoke to me. I also told her that he came out of the clock. She was staring shocked at me and I started laughing. I told her to come with me to see the man. She came with me, but the silhouette wasn't there anymore. She told me that I imagined everything and that there wasn't anybody.

After a few days, my grandmother showed me some pictures of Elena's father. When I saw the pictures I remained speechless. Elena's father was the man that I talked to, that pretty scary solhouette. I mean, at that moment, the silhouette wasn't scary at all. Now, when I am thinking about this, I figure out that I am really afraid of that happening.

Sorry for my bad grammar.

He was like a man. I could clearly see his mouth. His face was the single part that looked like a human one.

Your grammar was great, and the story was easy to understand. So creepy that he came from the clock! Did you see a hole for a mouth when he spoke to you, or did the voice just come from the direction of the steam? Or maybe it was telepathic?

Hello Lexz

I liked your story...! Its something different.
A totally different experience that I came across. How sweet of Elena's father's spirit that he communicated with you in such a tender way by asking how you are... I think there is no point of getting scared for you now. You experienced it when you were a kid, and I do not think he meant to hurt or scare you.

Thanks to share.

Your grammar is far better than most native English speakers, including mine.:)

I really like this story. Since the other's dismissed it, is it fair to say that they didn't (don't) believe in ghosts? That might be why he decided to show himself to you. Your mind, especially at a young age, was likely more open to the experience.

You don't have any reasons to be scared! I think it's pretty amazing you saw Elena's father! Not so many people get to see what you saw! Greetings from Romania also!

A) Your grammar is perfectly understandable.
B) My grammar is not that good at all.
C) To your story: Well, it's showing that our perception is still pure to some point in our lives.
When we're really young we've not learned or mis-learned what is the 'norm'.
Later in life most people will say to a child 'everyone knows...that...:there can't be something like a ghost because our world is solid' in this place & will probably call you 'mad'.
The world as we percieve it is not solid at all.
It's made out of atoms and they have no solidity.
Everything is (one) energy/consciousness.
Most people kind of forgot & forget that when they are raised in this world.
But then they are scared and shocked (quite funny) when something 'out of the norm' (for them at least) happens.
Even time is an illusion.

Nothing can hurt you now.
Don't be scared lil' LexzOnne. Greetings to 'Transilvania' from Germany. 😊
Much love

Lexz: your story is fascinating!
I think Elena's father was still around and wanted to welcome you to the house.
Do not be afraid, if anything, you have been lucky seen a proof that life do not end with death.
Thanks for sharing and welcome to YGS.
