Real Ghost Stories

The Lady In Pink


When I was four, my parents took myself and our little Shitzu, Mickey, to a cabin up north to stay with my aunt and uncle. I didn't particularly care for the cabin, as it was infested with many spiders and beetles. It wasn't clean. It was small. I was fairly high maintenance, even at the age of four.

One night, while the "grown-ups" sat in the living room talking politics and gossiping, I apparently fell asleep. I woke up very early in the morning, possibly just a couple of hours past midnight, to find that I was sharing a very large bed with my Uncle Ed. My aunt wasn't there, but I assumed that I was carried into the room after falling asleep on the couch. However, when I turned my head back towards the clock, I noticed that a very tall woman was standing in the doorway. She was wearing pink pajamas. At first I thought that she might be my aunt so I asked her if she wanted her bed back, but I received no response. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that the woman didn't really look anything like my aunt. Though it was dark, the very outline of this woman's body was drastically different from hers.

I spent another few seconds trying to see who it was. My second guess was that it was my mother. She had similar pajamas, but my mom was also very short- five feet, two inches. I called out to her anyway, but again, no response, and the woman simply stood there. I was only four at the time- I didn't know anything about ghosts. The woman in the doorway vanished.

The next morning, I crawled out of bed with blankie in hand and walked into the kitchen. I asked my mom why she came into my room the night before, but she stated quite passively that she had not. My aunt looked a bit puzzled when I asked her as well. Being that they were the only women in the house, I dropped it.

I never quite figured out what it was.

that woman in pink could have been the person who lived there befor you maybe she probably couldn't even see you, that's just my opinion.

i think it probabily was a ghost because they don't talk a lot and they come out in the night and if the other women in the house didn't know they didn't know.

Hello frenchpoet. I agree with rhodes, you do write good stories and I do enjoy reading them. In my opinion with you being four years old and it happening in the middle of the night, it was probably just a dream. However a lot of things go bump in the night, so who knows for sure.
Thanks for sharing another great story. Take care.
