My profile tells of the history of my house.
My cousin, Mary, and I love seeing ghost so every time she spends the night at my house, we go ghost hunting at about 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning. Most of the time, we see our Granny walking around, we hear someone say "Boo!" or we hear a loud bang. Well, one night we did it, I think the ghost got a little bit upset with us.
It was about 2:30 or so. We grabbed my lantern and turned out all of the lights. At first, there was nothing big going on. We walked around, but saw nothing. We decided to sit on the couch in my living room and talk for a little bit. Then, by our window, we saw a cloudy, white figure walk in front of the window and past the wall. We were a little freaked out, but not too bad.
Then, we sat or a little while longer. We had all of the lights completely off and no one else was down there with us. I was just sitting there for a little bit and then all of a sudden the living room light went on and then went off. I looked over and Mary was still right beside me, and no one else was with us, as I stated before.
We heard noises and everything so I decided to tell the ghost or ghosts to give us a sign that it was there with us.
"Pull Mary's hair or clothes or something," I told it.
Nothing happened. We decided to check the computer for a second because we got bored of sitting there. We turned on the computer room light and we were on it for about five minutes. We started again. I tried to turn on the lantern, but it would not go on. My dad already put new batteries in it before and they were just bought batteries. It was turned on all the way, but it still would not turn on.
"Turn on!" I said somewhat quietly.
The lantern then turned on. Mary was starting to get freaked out. I did not really think of it.
"That was the sign," Mary told me. We went into the living room again and sat down. I wanted to find out if the ghost were really with us. I turned it off.
"If there is anyone with us, then when I try to turn this lantern back on make sure it stays off," I said with confidence.
Sure enough, the lantern stayed off. We tried it a few more times, and it still would not stay on.
It was about 3:15, 3:30, or so, so we decided to call it a night. I went to turn the light back on, but then the room started getting very cold. I sat back down by Mary. I made Mary come with me to turn the light on. Then, the stove door opened and then banged shut by itself with no one down there but us. We were sure that the ghosts did not want us to stop.
"I'm sorry, ghosts," we told it. "Please don't be mad. We just do not feel like ghost hunting anymore tonight. We've been at it for almost an hour..."
After we said that, I turned the lights back on and nothing happened for the rest of the night.
