Real Ghost Stories

Skype At The 3rd Floor


I really love to listen to any creepy ghost stories ever since I was young and perhaps my fascination over those kind of things awakened my paranormal senses.

DISCLAIMER: (1) Most of the names I will write are just made up to protect the real identity of my closest friends. (2) Most dialogues will be written in "tag-lish" and/or non-verbatim to emphasize the real situation happened. Any (rough) translations will be provided accordingly.

Thank you.


My cousin from the US went home and stayed in our house for 2 weeks. She chose to occupy our guest room located at the 3rd floor. This was my room for almost 3 years until I decided to leave the room since there's some kind of entity that doesn't like me there. Think about the stuff that could possibly happen. Countless sleepless nights, that feeling of someone staring at you while you sleep, voices at the corridor, moving things and dragging chairs etc. I can enumerate everything but I will just tell them on the next following chapters.

Moving forward to the story, ever since I left the room, no one has ever occupied it for such a long time except if there are any family members that will come and visit.

The room is quite too big but the ambiance is light since the windows and veranda are usually open. But when the dusk starts to bite the sky, the feel inside the room gradually change as well.

Right after our dinner, she decided to stay in her room and told me that she's going to have a nice chit chat with her friend living in Singapore. I told her to turn the lights on if she wanted to have a video call because the room isn't really well-lighted since my Dad don't have much time to change all the light bulbs.

"Okay lang, sa may hagdan lang naman madilim diba?" (It's fine, the stairs are the only side that's dark right?)

I didn't know what happened after. I did not even bother to check her room as I let her rest and enjoy her night.

It was past 11 am when she woke up the next day and told the incident from last night.

"Sam, kwarto mo yun dati diba?" (Sam, isn't that your room before?)

"Opo ate, bakit po?" (Yes, why?)

"wala lang, kasi diba, ang taas na nya nasa 3rd floor na kaya impossibleng makita yung kapit bahay no?" (nothing, it's just that, it's located at the 3rd floor so it's impossible to see the reflections from the neighborhood, right?)

"ate naman, ang layo kaya ng mga bahay dito. Ano ba nangyari?" (Sis, the distance of each houses are blocks away, why? What happened?)

"kasi, yung friend ko, tinatanong nya kung sino kasama ko eh sabi ko wala naman, ako lang mag-isa. Sabi pa nya, Ling, hindi. May katabi ka nakatingin nga sakin eh, lola mo ba?" (my friend was asking me if someone's with me and I told her i'm alone but she insisted as the old lady was actually staring at her. She thought she was my grandmother.)

Then she added,

"di ko na tinanong kung anong itsura kasi natatakot na ako pero nasabi nya, matandang babae na mahaba ang buhok tapos nakaputi, nakangiti daw sa kanya tapos hinahaplos-haplos yung ulo ko. Nako ewan ko ba kung niloloko lang ako nun pero kinikilabutan ako eh" (I didn't dare to ask how does she looked like because I feel scared but she mentioned that the old lady was wearing a very long hair and she was smiling as she caress my head. I don't know if she's just joking but it gave me goose bumps all over)

As much as I wanted to tell her more, I never initiated any related stories after knowing her creepy story from my previous room. She might end up sleeping in my room instead. (as if she'll have a nice sleep)

Well, at least it gave me a confirmation that there is really someone who's with us in the room 24/7.

Hi rice cat. I don't know it will work or not but I really want to help. Whenever you are in that room, Recite the following when you feel something is with you:
Kul Aoozoo birabinaas.Malikinaas.Ilahinaas.Min Sharil waswaasil Khannaas. Alazii Yoowaswisu Fii Aoozoo rinnaas. Minal Jinati wannaas.Well,If you could buy the Holy Quran this is surah Naas and it will really help you. Or you can recite:
Aoozoo bilahi minashaitaanirajeem. Before reciting these recite this:Laailaha Ilalah Muhammadur Rasulloolah. Sorry If I had written very much, But the story was really great. 😁 😁 😁

If you have had some creepy experiences in the room, why wouldn't you tell anyone about it?

Ignornace is not always bliss in these types of situations.
But then again I understand you wouldn't have wanted to scare your cousin before she was able to sleep in there.

If you could post another on here explaining your own experiences in the room. That way the ones who read this and have questions, may have some sort of clarification.

To have a woman, staring and smiling at the opposite person on the screen, and to have her watching this Grandmother type woman caressing your cousins hair is creepy! But you would think if your cousin knew this woman was in the room she would have introduced her, but she didn't,that should've been the first clue, this was something not normal.

Did you ever ask your cousin if she asked her friend to describe the woman? And if so, she she ever tell you this could infact be her, or sounds quite similar to what she looked like?

Thank you for sharing

Randy just wanted to clarify that the skype was involved in the story, it was the video call the cousin had made in the author's old room:) Sorry just wanted to clarify.

For what I understand I think that it was the friend of her cousin who asked if it was her cousin's grandmother who was with her... I had to re-write this twice because yeah it's a bit confusing. 😕 Hope the OP can make this and some other points clear.

For some reason I thought you were going to say an image appeared and the person you were skype-ing saw it too!
Good read, though maybe you could go into more detail about what other things have creeped you out in that room.

Welcome to YGS and thanks for sharing.

I'm very confused so maybe a few questions will help to clarify.

Even though Skpye is in the title I never saw it in the story.
Is this where your cousin was seeing or thought she was seeing
Reflections? Or did she think they were coming from houses
Nearby? What I'm getting at is where was she seeing this person?
Next to her? Behind her? Where?

Also, she asked if it was your Grandmother
She is a cousin but doesn't know what your Grandmother looks like?

I must admit that I had a very hard time following your story due
To it being written in two languages. Perhaps that is why I'm
Confused. I'm in no way saying I don't believe, just need some
