G'day, I'm back with another spooky tale.
Okay, I'm working in a small co-op shop in a very small country town in the bush. The shop used to be owned by a man who was an alcoholic and he was found dead about six weeks back. Now for the spooky bits.
My job is to look after the gardens as I'm a trained gardener (and a journo). This happened two weeks back and still continuing as I write this.
I was out the back of the shop where there's an empty house where the bloke died. I was there looking at the garden and enjoying the cold, winter sun when I saw, or thought I saw, a face looking out of the house window. It was a man; very sickly looking, glaring at me. He was there one second and gone the next. I walked over to the window and peered in. Nope, the damned place was empty. I went back to the shop but told no one (just in case they thought I was nuts). Fast forward five days ago.
You know those buzzers on the doors that tell you if someone just entered the store right. I was at the counter doing something when the buzzer went as if someone just walked into the shop. I looked up and, surprise surprise, no one was there. I went over to the buzzer but it was working fine. Twenty minutes later, it went off again. This time I saw someone standing there, a shadow of a figure then it faded away.
All day the door kept buzzing, very damned annoying then my boss asked me yesterday (8/7/09) if I left all the windows open because she found all the windows lying open. Everyone said the windows were locked so, what's going on?
I wish I knew and I'm not asking for help because I think it's the last owner checking up on us. The face in the window occurred again, I should add, several times over the past three/four weeks.
