When I was about nine or ten years old, my family would go up to our friend's house on a farm. We would be there all day and wouldn't leave until 11 or 12 at night. A lot of the time, we four kids would play in the hay barn next to the house. We would be in there all day, just jumping and climbing on the hay bales.
The barn was built into a hill. The top part was the hay barn, and under the floor was the cow shelter for when the cows came in from the pasture. The only way into the barn was from the front doors and there was a window facing towards the house built at the very top of the barn. Even when the hay was stacked to it's fullest, it never reached any where near the window. There was no electricity in the top part of the barn so the only light we had to play by was the sunlight.
One night, we were playing outside in the back yard that faced the barn and our parents were in the house. For some reason, I looked up at the window in the barn and there was a head of a man with dark hair watching us kids play. I told the others to look at the window and they saw the head, too. All four of us just stared at the window for a couple minutes and then started talking to each other. When we looked back up at the window, the face was gone, but there was a glow in the barn like a candle or something was lit up.
We knew that there was no one in the barn because our parents were in the house. We also we knew no one would be able to look out that window because we were in the barn earlier that day, and there was not enough hay in the barn to even begin to stack it up to the window.
My friend, Linda, and her brother then told my brother and I about her uncle that hung himself in the barn when he was in his late twenties. They said he would go in the barn late at night and look at dirty magazines by candle light, and one morning he was found hanging by the rafter. He was depressed because his girlfriend had just broken up with him and took his own life.
We never saw the face again, but sometimes we would see the glow through the window.
