First of all in my other story "Soul Surfing" I mentioned that this was my first happening with the paranormal, but I have gone over this in my head and from other things I have been told I have realized that this is probably my first experience. I haven't had many though, I'm not one of those "ghosty" people.
This experience took place in the first house I lived in and I was around 3 or 4 at the time so this experience had always been a little hazy for me. I don't remember much else as I was very young at the time and have only found out the full details quite recently.
I remember it was a warm summer night and being very young. I was made to go to bed while it was still light. I didn't shut my curtains as I always fell asleep watching my garden (sounds strange I know but on a warm summer night it was nice).
I remember been laid in my bed and I saw a man standing next to my window. He was old, I can't remember what he was wearing but he just stood smiling, watching me. It sounds funny but I remember thinking he was the window cleaner or something and I remember laughing at him smiling at me. I don't remember much after that but eventually I think he went away and I fell to sleep.
Growing up, whenever the subject of ghosts had come up I always claimed to my parents that the man I saw was one but I honestly was never really sure because I was young. My parents always just shrugged it off and said I wouldn't have remembered because I was so young.
However I was talking with my mum recently and she told me that before we moved in, a man had died in that room. It would have been an understatement to say that I was annoyed... There was a spare room as well and they gave me the haunted one!
I would love to hear your thoughts on this!
