The Ghost that Followed Me


I was coming down from my room when I paused and saw a shadowy figure with a hooded cloak. Then it came to me and put its hand on my shoulder, but the weird thing was I didn't feel anything! It then just disappeared into thin air. Then the next day, I went down again and I felt a shiver down my spine, I stopped walking, I heard a moaning noise coming from the cupboard under the stairs. I walked down the stairs and went to inspect the moaning noise, I opened the cupboard door and saw a shadowy figure again bending down with a knife! I told my mum there was a ghost she said it doesn't matter because we were moving house tomorrow! So I shouted yippee!

We moved house to a nice cottage. Then I went and chose my room and put all my stuff into it. I saw the same ghost on the chair outside my room, I gulped and ran past the horrible thing and shouted GHOST! So I told my mum and she said there's no such thing as ghosts! I said I'll show you so we walked upstairs and it was gone, she said stop lying! From that moment on, I was scared of going upstairs.

I moved to a room downstairs and I never seen the ghost again.

Well, you had a encounter with what I call "The Reapers".
Ever since I saw a green orb at the age of 4 I've been researching these things.
And I've noticed the a good number of ghosts wear a cloak with hoods.
Ex. The Brown Lady, the Golden Lady, the ghost in one of the videos on here, and one that was in a church.
I've finalized the name when I saw the photo test done on the Golden Lady.
I believe you. Although I've never seen a ghost follow someone before.

I too have a ghost that follows me, but in my case, it never stops. I think that you haven't seen the ghost because you fear it so. Sometimes if a ghost knows you are afraid, it will feed off that fear and gain more power, but in you case I think the spirit had nothing more to gain by following you, so its gone. Keep in mind that sometimes a ghost will lay low until you feel its gone, then all of a sudden it will show back up. I am not trying to scare you, but warn you.

Wow, that is very strange. I believe that ghosts can track anyone down from anywhere. I can give you more advice on this subject. My emails are purplegerbil96 [at], purplegerbil96 [at], or allysn_Xox [at] You don't have to add me if you don't want to, but I could give you more advice. :)
