Unusual Ghost in my Sister's House


Just to clarify, my sister has moved out and now lives with her boyfriend about 10 minutes drive away. She's pathetic when she's on her own at night and every time her boyfriend goes out I have to sleep over in the spare room.

At roughly midnight I was watching TV when I heard a strange noise, kind of like when you get ringing in your ears but not in your ears, then I heard footsteps in the kitchen downstairs, obviously it wasn't me or my sister, at first I thought it was the cat but then it became increasingly loud.

The footprints then seemed to proceed up the stairs, my sister kept a toolbox in the spare room because of the boiler, so thinking the footsteps were an intruders, I grabbed a hammer and a screwdriver and slowly crept towards the landing, the footsteps carried on, but there was no-one there, so I thought I was imagining it until I felt a hand grab my leg, when I looked down there was a skeletal hand with a blue aura surrounding it, not thinking I slammed the hammer at the hand which, believe it or not, did absolutely nothing.

I then saw footprints in the carpet leading to wards the bathroom so I slowly pushed open the door and I saw a young girls face in the mirror, then she smiled an evil smile the mirror smashed and that was that.

I told my sister in the morning and she told me she often heard footprints and clattering in the bathroom but never dared get out of bed.

I'm sorry, but I don't buy this story. If all that happened in the night, you would NOT have waited until the morning to tell your sister. Also, you seem a bit too calm about the skeletal hand. I would be jumping up & down screaming, not following footsteps into the other room.

I was all ready to defend this one and say that is was no more far fetched than some of the other stories I have read on this site, but then I looked at their profile and it seems that the author is very young. It says that they are not allowed to look at this web-site, so he has to use it before his parents come home. Now I'm not saying that it didn't happen, but in the words of KimsouthO Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm? 🤔

As far as the mirror smashing, this I can actually believe these kind of things happen. For the aura with the hand, I have a hard time to believe this. I never seen an Aura around a spirit before, and I have seen sprits for a long time now.

To me it was a well written, creative writing kind of story.

Holy mole! If I was walking in a dark place and something touched me, I would have done some a**-kicking. Though I won't lie to you, because it is hard to believe about the hand and the evil-smirking girl, I think that place should get some form of excorsism. Well, anyways, peace.

Sorry. This ones a little hard to believe. Thanks for the fun, though. Wonder how you missed your ankle while smashing the hammer at the "hand"?

Hmm... Maybe it was a "mist", not an aura... But why in the world would you follow footsteps that lead to the bathroom right after a skeletal hand just tried to grab you? First thing that I would do is run like a bat out of hell and wake my sister up, or just leave the house and never come back. 🤔

Intruders! Quick, grab a hammer and screwdriver, the best defensive tools in the trade, but whatever you do, DON'T call the police when someone breaks into your house. Always--ALWAYS--fight them in hand to hand combat. It's really the only way.

By the way, who's paying for the mirror?

I didn't mean aura sorry I got my vocabulary mixed up it had sort of a foggy haze around the hand. As for the mirror that smashed whilst the girls face was in it and only has smashed that once. And Finally my sisters boyfriend never heard the noises only my sister use he's virtually impossible to wake up without an alarm.
I hope that clarified the story a little more. 😁

hmmmmmm, I am afraid this is a bit fragmented. Was the hand skeletal or blue or did it have an aura? The aura is for a person that still walks among us, unless my definition is wrong.

The girl, did the mirror smash with her face showing in it or after? Did your sisters boy friend ever chck the bathroom? Did the mirror break every time they heard the noises, becuase that could get very expensive.

Need some clarification here, or as I stated this is a bit to fragmented for me...

God Bless!

I think Its possible. I had a similar thing happen when I was wathching a ghost hunters show on tv and the mirror fell of the wall. And nothing could have made it fall. Thanks for sharring. I hope to hear from you soon and take care

Huh, Well.
Your sister often times hears the footsteps and clattering in the bathroom? Does that mean the mirror "smashes" every time? The skeletal hand that grabbed your leg (I was under the impression that an "aura" is something only the living can posses as it is a reflection of their inner soul) was small enough to have belonged to the young evil smiling girl? I have to share the same emoticon as Martin here. 🤔
Thank you.
