I'm only eleven and have already encountered a ghost. I go to my grandmother's house a lot and see "things". There used to be this rocking chair in the living room that every time at 2am, something would be rocking this chair. My grand mother is very religious and she can tell (by the coldness) when a ghost is near.
My favorite cousin, Annabell, and I, snuck out at almost 1:30 am to the living room we waited to see, but we never saw anything. Annabell got so tired, she went to bed. I stood there awake, forcing myself to stay awake (I'm fascinated by ghosts. Every day I come home, I go read the ghost stories on the computer, I would do any thing to see a real ghost). At 2:00am, I nearly got sat on. I thought it was my sister (she wakes up every night to go pee) but it was a lot heavier. I couldn't breath. When the weight decreased, I jumped up to see who it was. All I saw was a figure, it looked like a young woman.
The next morning I told Annabell about my encounter. She thought I was lying because she said I was a great actress. That was until my other cousin told me about a women who died in that house and owned that rocking chair. That cousin encountered the same ghost but it was when she went to brush her teeth and the ghost came through her bathroom door. As soon as she screamed, my grand mother came rushing I'll never forget that day, 5/30/03.
