Real Ghost Stories

The Girl With The Short Black Hair


My name is Chris and I am 16. About 5 months ago me and my family moved in to a house into the middle of the woods. The house we moved from was haunted by a little girl's ghost, when we moved we thought we got rid of it. But after about 4 months in our new house my Dad started seeing things. I didn't think much of it at first but then my Mom started hearing things, a couple of days later I started hearing things in our kitchen which is right beside my room and my sisters room.

My Dad saw a glass slide across the kitchen counter and the TV. Turns on and off at night by itself. 3 days ago my Mom left me and my sister home while she went to her cousin's house. She was gone for about 3 hours. Right after she left my sister was on the couch and she said she saw something move in the kitchen. When I looked over there we both saw a little girl in a white dress with short black hair and a pale white face.

A week later my Dad wanted to show me something on the computer so I sat beside him on the couch. Out of the middle of nowhere the rocking chair started rocking by its self. I asked my dad if he saw it too and he said yes. We got up a left for the rest of the day.

I was awake at around 1:00 a.m. My dad woke up to go outside and smoke a cigarette I went with him outside. We were outside for about 5 minutes we turned around to go back inside when we saw a little girl that looked like she was was about 8 years old in a white dress and with short black hair. The ghost in the other house looks just like this one.

We are still living here and I get the feeling I will be writing another story soon enough.

sometimes the ghosts of little kids mean absolutely NO harm. 😁 they just might want a friend to play with. For fun set up cameras where you see her and if there is a pattern, if there is look at the time and then say," I know you are here. I just want to talk if that's ok with you." and if she does someting or says something shes reeled in and you can talk and find out what she wants, why shes following you, or what her name is. But most importantly ask if it is nice and if it says no then just leave the house and go outside or tell it to leave youa lone and get out of the house. Or have the house blessed. God bless you

Hey braxtoncw, great story!

I think the small girl followed you to your new house, and maybe it got attached to you. Why don't you try putting video camera's in the places where you have seen her and try capturing her on video? Best of luck and keep us posted!

Demon named Claudia if she has a violent attitude or a brown teddy bear if you hear someone call your name and you alone then it means you are about to be possessed you know her name you can control her

Very interesting story. It sounds like this spirit got attached to your family in the old house and followed you to the new one. From what you wrote, it doesn't seem like she means you or your family harm. I think she just wants to be noticed. I grew up with a ghost in my apartment. My family lived there for over 14 years, and from time to time we would hear him puttering around. I have even seen him a couple of times. I found that talking out loud when you feel there presence is very helpful. I would say things like...Hello, I know your here. Or Hey, nice to hear from you again. I know these things sound corny but it made me feel better and less afraid. Maybe it will help you too. Good luck, and thanks for the story. 😊

Why not look into the history of this house and find out how this little girl died? There may be something holding her back from passing on and knowing her history might help. For now she seems to want to be noticed and probably doesn't like to be alone. Talk to her and try to help, she doesn't seem harmful, just playful.

does your mom had a miscarriage before? Because if she does it might be your sibling following you guys. Or maybe the ghost was already attached to your family. As long as the ghost doesn't hurt and bother you guys, it's ok. But if it really annoys you, contact a psychic or have the house blessed. Please keep us posted.

Try to be her friend because most ghost kids just want a friend to play with.

Maybe this little girl didn't have very nice past with her own family, and seems to want your attention. Maybe she'd just like a family.
I'm sure she means no harm. Maybe you could try talking to her or maybe looking up her past from your old house.
Keep us updated.

God Bless.

most ghosts that are spirits of children mean no harm, and don't mean to scare you. Next time you see the little girl talk to her, ask questions like what is your name, why are you here, things like that. Now you said that this ghost was in your other house, so it must be following you, if you want this ghost to go away ask it to move forward in to the next world, and that she will be happier there. Or bless the house and set her free, but if this ghost doesn't bother you, then for fun, or for reason try looking her up from your other house, maybe it will say something about her. Hope this helped you and your family.

She certainly wants your attention. 😊 But generally little girls don't mean much harm to other people and just want a friend. ❤
