Real Ghost Stories

It Wasn't My Cousin


I have several experience of paranormal stuff, this is one of them. This happened in the townhouse that I used to live before with my family. It was a duplex townhouse.

One night I was in my master bedroom, doing something on my laptop. In another room my Aunt was sleeping with my two little cousin. The whole house was quite, and all the light was off except in my room.

It was almost 09:45 pm winter night. My parents and my brother was at work. All of a sudden I Heard someone open the main door with full force (the door was hard to open). I heard my cousin voice. Shena is calling my brother name as he was looking for him. He didn't shut the door and he was walking up to the stairs to coming to the room to looking for him.

As he was walking up to the stairs it was making creaking noise. My heart was beating like a racing horse but I was still trying to figure out if it was my cousin or it just my imagination. Because he didn't knock the door, he directly opened the door as if it was unlocked. The third time he called my brother name right before he stood right front of my room door.

I was still scared to death to open my door and answer him because the light for the stairs was off. But then I thought maybe someone forgot to lock the door and it is my cousin Shena looking for my brother. So I opened my door to answer him but there was nobody.

I looked at my aunt room if they were up but they were all asleep. Then I turned on the stairs light and calling my cousin name but there was no one. The main door was also closed. I got a chill run through my spine as I got scared.

I ran up to my room and called my brother told him that Shena was looking for him. He said what you are talking about and he laughed at me saying Shena is with me in the car coming home. After five minute my brother, Shena and his elder brother came home. I told them everything and they were laughing at me and making fun of me. But Shena's elder brother told me something also happened in their house the night before. But he never told me what it was.

I have more things to say about other experience. I will submit them later.

Forgive all my mistakes.

Welcome to Y.G.S. Zinia
Things like this happening can be frightening. Had your brother been home and had also heard it I would say that your cousin was preparing you both for some bad news. This happened to a friend of mine. She and her younger brother were home and thought they heard their older brother come in the house calling for them. About twenty minutes later their mother called to say their aunt had died.

Hello Zinia,

Thank you for sharing your story, it sounds very strange, did you live there for long?, seems like you are no longer there so, have you experienced anything else, out of that house?, Be well:)
