Real Ghost Stories



In my past story I told you about two unknown entities. The story I am about to tell is about one entity. This experience happened some where around 2004-2005.

One night, as I usually did, in winter I had an electric fireplace going while I was playing some video games (as a small kid I was addicted). I had just finished playing my games and I forgot to turn off the fireplace, so I went back in the room and without switching the lights back on I turned off the fireplace and ran to the stairs, as I ran I turned my head and saw a dark non-transparent shadow reaching for me. I was so scared I ran up told my parents and of course they didn't believe me.

A few months later I was in the living room it was very late and I decided to go to bed. It was around midnight, so I switched off the light and ran to my room and again turned my head and saw the same shadow reaching for me. I was scared I never told my parents about this occurrence because I didn't want my dad to make fun of me.

That was the only time I saw that shadow but I have had some other odd experiences while playing video games but that's for another story.

Thanks for reading please help me figure out why the shadows were there. I think they were trying to send a message but please tell me what you think.

Oh. Well I'm truly sorry for your loss, that must have been hard...It's to bad (in a way) that you couldn't speak to them though I guess it's OK because it means they passed on

Wow; you must of been kind of freaked!
Hopefully they just wanted to talk, and not to harm you.
And I get what you mean; how parents wouldn't believe you. I tried telling her about what happened in my second story. All she said was "Where you watching anything scary the past couple of nights?" I wanted to laugh because I haven't really watched any tv in months.
Maybe you should try talking to it when you feel most comfortable and save. If you ever try to do, make sure you have the upper hand. Trust me; it's not fun when you have no idea what's going on.
Try maybe getting a tape recorder, see if that works?
Hope you find the answers you're looking for!
