This experience happened in 2015 when I was living in a unit on Logan St Beenleigh QLD with my best friend. Many other things happened in this unit to me as well however I will just write about the relevant one.
It was daytime and I was home alone standing in the kitchen washing dishes. I felt like someone was watching me from across the living room. I turned around and saw a young boy standing there staring straight ahead at me. I could clearly see the top half of him however can not remember if I saw anything below the waist. The moment I screamed he disappeared. I wasn't scared just startled.
I thought the boy was wearing a sailor looking suit. I googled the fashion from the 1800s to early 1900s for children and it looks very similar with a collared shirt and those particular hats. The boy was probably aged from 5-6 years old. I wish I could find out if this was my brain playing tricks on me or if this was a snippet of the past.
Needless to say after I saw this boy, I was terrified and never wanted to be alone in the house again. I spent most of the lease on this property not there or chain smoking outside. We ended up moving out after 3 months and ended our lease.
I have been thinking about this experience a lot lately which prompted me to write this story here. I went to the Beenleigh Historical Village on the weekend to see if any old photos I could find would look like the kid I saw but couldn't find anything which felt right. I thought that maybe I could find out if a boy lived/died near where the units now hundreds of years ago.
I hope you find this interesting. Happy to read your comments and reply.
