A Real Nightmare


This happened to me about a few weeks ago when I was going to bed one thursday night. I had to wake up for school the next day so I tried really hard to get to sleep. Hours past and couldn't get to sleep. It was 4:00 am when I heard this loud tapping on the side of a door. I wasn't sure what door, I just knew it wasn't the one that led into my bedroom. I have two cats, so I figured it was one of them. But how in the world could a cat do that? So I quietly slid out of my bed and walked into the long hallway that stretched down to my dad's room. The tapping had stopped, and at least 10 seconds later, a small sighing came from the bathroom. I stood outside my bedroom frightened to death. But I didn't really believe in ghosts (at the time) so I walked into the bathroom prepared for my brother to jump out and scare me.

Instead, a dark shadow stood in the corner of the shower. I turned on the light and blinked a couple times, but the figure still stood facing the corner. I didn't know what to do, I panicked and ran to my room hiding my self under the covers. Light footsteps thudded out of the bathroom and I peaked from under the covers to face a tall blond women looking to be in her thirties standing in my doorway. Her white night gown was covered with blood and she held a knife in one hand. I screamed as loud as I could and once again hid under my covers. When louder footsteps came pounding down the hallway my dad came running in.

I knew my dad wouldn't believe me so I told him it was a bad dream. He gave me a stern face and patted me on the back. I haven't seen that women or the dark figure again, but I know that they're still haunting my house.

Yes, I do when called for, as it is in the vast majority of these sad cases.

So are you saying that you believe in ghosts now? Usually it's the one's that are the biggest skeptics that have the hair raising, jaw dropping, mind crushing experiences that just makes their hearts pound so hard, it feels like it's going to jump out of their chest. My fiance is a skeptic and is always saying that people who say they see ghosts and spirits are crazy and I always tell him that he's going to be one of the crazy one day. One of these days, he will have an experience with one and he won't forget it.

oh my god... That sounds so scary! I'm sorry you had to go threw that. My advice, if things keep going on, would be to try to tell it to pass on... Or find out history of your house because that sounds like a murder or suicide

Yes that is sceary!,
I figured that the house you living in must have had a murder or suicideal event on the grounds you are living on or the house you are living in,
I sugest you tell them/it to go away to the light... I know this sounds insane but it does work

Oh my good lord! That's terrifying! Next time something like this happens, tell them they need to leave you alone. That lady with the knife seems like she's had a bad history with something, or seems like she's at least a tortured spirit. Do some research, and see what you can find about your house's history. πŸ˜‰

ghosts do live in most people houses my house is haunted too. Don't worry she can't hurt you but they stare at you. They can frighten you but just carry on like something has happened. It is freaky compared to things what I've been through that lady you saw she doesn't know she's dead that's why all you have to say If you see a ghost just say nicely please leave and they leave. 😐

I think you should find out what happened in your house in the past! Whether there was a murder there or not? Let me know as I really am interested x

WOW! That is truly scary😨 , I would say look up the history of that house, I am sure somewhere you will find a history. I am guessing the woman was murdered in the house.

Freaky. I think you are a very brave person to go into the bathroom to investigate. But even if your dad wouldn't believe you, you should of told him!

Oh my god! First of all you should have told your dad, even if he didn't believe you. 'Cause what if you dad came across this figure? It might be best to have someone know.
