It was only last year, just before Christmas and I was thirteen when it all began or so I thought. Little did I know that this was not the start of my ghostly encounter!
In my home in Dewsbury I had a doorbell on my bedroom door and one night, it started ringing. I checked the hall but no one was there. I checked the other rooms upstairs as well but they were all empty too. About five minutes later the doorbell rang again, and again the upstairs of the house was empty. By this point, my sister and I were getting seriously freaked out. I even took the battery out. It happened a third time about ten minutes later. This time I went downstairs and asked my mum if she had been upstairs. "No" she said.
I slept badly that night and I could think of nothing else at school the next day. It wasn't until that night when I got some answers. My dad had just picked me up and was taking me to his house when I mentioned what had happened the previous night. He seemed unsurprised and explained that the house was indeed haunted.
Just before I was born my parents moved into the house and as they were unpacking they both saw a little girl, looking about nine years old, sat about half way up the stairs looking down. They never bother about her and apparently I used to play with my dolls on the stairs and have lengthy conversations with someone.
We haven't seen her since but know she is around. I will be sat in a room with the windows closed and the chair will move from one side of the room to the other. Or if we are listening to a CD there are always certain tacks that get mysteriously skipped. It's the same if we are watching a programme that she doesn't like. The channel will all of a sudden change even if we are sat nowhere near the remote. We just think she is bored and I say that if she was going to harm us, she would have done it by now.
Do you agree or do you think I should be wary from now on? Please let me know.
