This isn't a scary ghost story, but it is a story of unexplainable occurrences and a ghost that disliked my step-dad as much as me. My mom bought a house after her divorce from my dad. The previous owner had died in her bed in that very house. We knew this because we lived in the same neighborhood that the house was in. Since this story is about a few different occurrences and not a horrifying haunting I will just tell you of the things that took place. Just so you know, I was about 15 or 16 at the time.
When we bought the house it was full of the previous owner's belongings, which we got rid of. We got rid of everything except for one item which my mom wanted to keep. It was just a small wooden magazine holder that we kept in the bathroom. Well, the events began with that bathroom light turning itself on any time of the day or night. This later spread to the hallway light doing the same thing except it would turn on or off. Nothing scary about that but it happened a lot so we know it wasn't us and I seriously doubt it was the wiring, but who knows?
One time I had started upstairs when the light turned off while I was half way through the hallway. No one else was home at the time.
Then, one day while my mom lay in bed very sick with the flu, she said that she thought my sister had come into her room and pulled the covers up on her body to keep her warm. The covers were pulled up but my sister and I both were at school at the time. My mom told us about this shortly after it had happened to confirm that neither of us had done it. Like I said, not scary but this ghost seemed to be caring and thoughtful as well as a prankster.
The next thing to occur was when my step-dad was grilling our dinner out on the back porch. To get to the porch you had to go through a sliding glass door. This house was fairly old and certainly dated. The sliding glass door had one of those locks that you push up or down to lock and unlock it. It was very difficult to get it to lock though. You had to push in real hard on the door while pushing the lock into place. It took a great deal of effort to get that door locked. Well, my step-dad had gone out to check on the meat and when he went to come back in the door had been locked. The rest of us were in the kitchen talking and hadn't moved. We were in full sight of the door from where we were sitting.
He got all teed off when this happened and blamed us but none of us had done it. I mean, there is no way we could have without him noticing, and for that door to just lock on its own was just out of the question. There is no way that the lock could have slid into place by itself. Then, after he brought the food in we were all still in the kitchen area and he was at the counter getting the food ready. As he stood there tending to the meat one of the cabinets swung open and whacked him in the head. We all saw it and we laughed, even though it was quite unexpected and startling. He couldn't blame this one on us, but he also didn't believe in ghosts. The rest of us had long since come to believe that we had a visitor in that house. And it was pretty obvious that she did not approve of my step-dad. Neither did my mom because she divorced him after only a year of being married.
So, that's it. Not scary but definitely things that took place of a paranormal nature. Oh, and this isn't spam just a suggestion. If you like paranormal shows on TV you should watch Ghost Adventures on Friday nights. It is by far the best ghost hunting show I have seen and I've seen all of them.
Thanks and take care.
