Ghosts Are Real


It was a warm summer night in mid July, and my cousin and I lay snuggled in bed together. The crickets were chanting outside; I could see the lightning bugs flashing through the air as I lay quietly gazing out of the window into the darkness. Suddenly, as I was absorbing the tranquility, I heard footsteps walking in the loft. These steps were creepy, and they sounded mysterious, while I silently observed each step. Gradually, the walking stopped and I fell asleep.

The next morning as my cousin and I played with our dolls, I told her about the footsteps in the loft and she told me that she had heard it before, but that she always tried to fall asleep before it manifested itself. So, we determined that night that we would stay awake and we would both peep to see who or what it was that walked in the loft during the late hours of the night. A few hours before daybreak, that night became a night that we would remember for many years to come.

As we giggled gently under the sheet, we watched and waited for the footsteps to appear. Finally, around 2 o'clock the creepy feet started strolling slowly through the loft. I pinched her and she pinched back as we lay lifeless listening to the steps as they moved closer toward us, then stopped above our heads. I stared through the covers, but did not see anything. My cousin saw a figure of an aged man standing near the window, she told me when we rose early the next morning.

Whether some people believe it or not, ghost have been known to exist and spirits may even be all around us. Many people don't believe in ghosts because they have never had an encounter with one, but there are lot of others who have witnessed these episodes and we know that they really do or have at some point existed.
