It's In The Genes


As previously mentioned in my first entry to this site, the ability to interact/see/hear/etc ghosts runs in my family (on my Mother and Fathers side, but my Father refuses to have anything to do with it). However, we have never simply sat down and talked about it. Yesterday on the 8th of November was our first time, and it just kind of happened. My Father was at work and My Brother, Mother, and I were in the kitchen making dinner and chatting. When it first started out, my Brother was telling me of all the experiences he had in his old room (which is now my room, and a very active one at that.), then it moved onto my Mom telling us of things she's seen and things that have happened in her life time so far. After really getting into it we were all giddy that it was something we could all talk about together, but in the middle of our conversation we all started hearing a faint sound, like someone was crying. We searched the house and didn't find anything, so we returned to cooking.

About an hour later, after we had eaten, it started again. My Mom asked aloud "What's the matter? Are you okay?" and it slowly faded out. We all exchanged confused looks and shook our heads, jumping three feet in the air from a sitting position when all the windows and doors in the house began to rattle and shake the crying now loud and screeching. My Brother began to try and settle it, telling it that everything was okay, to calm its self. It continued on along side my Bother's attempts to calm it for a few seconds longer before stopping abruptly and not starting again at all.

Today he came home and confessed to me that he swears he's been seeing a small Japanese boy dressed in school uniform out of the corner of his eye all day.

I am interested if anyone has anything to say, any comments.

Do you think perhaps the crying ghost is the same ghost that is following my Brother?

Do all or most of the homes in your area look similar?...maybe the poor thing thought it was his house and was crying because his parents weren't there?...Has your brother seen him since then?

To me it seems like a start!...
Its a shame they wouldn't tell you how he passed... But if you still feel like its not the answer then search into it more... It seems a good starting point from my point of view though!

Hey guys, thanks for all the input.

Got a bit of an update on the situation for you.

As it turns out there is a Japanese family living up the street from us, they lost their son a few moths ago (they would not disclose how he died). When I inquired about the uniform, mainly because it made no sense that a Japanese boy living in Canada would wear a school uniform when all the schools in the area are public. They said that he enjoyed parading around in his old school clothes pretending to still be in Japan (poor thing).

So I know where the child came from... But is it just me, or do the two not really fit together?
Either he wanted attention and NOW, or it was a very active two days.

Why, when I read about the Japenese boy, did I think of the Japan version of One Missed Call? Whatever. Anyway, do some research around your town/city and figure some things out about your home/area.

I think its great when you have support from your family members. I think it helps you through it a lot more!
Me personally I have no support apart from on here... My mum thinks I'm mad when I mension anything that I see or hear.
Even when I told her that grandma had a message for her... But hey onto your story! 😳

Why doesn't your brother try to interact with this little lad? Obviously he prefers your brother... Seeing as he has calmed him.

Keep us posted!

I agree with Miss_Cannabis that you should try and do some reasearch, however I would be careful this "ghost" it seems powerful. Powerful enough to rattle the windows and doors you could be dealing with an evil entity, even a demon, taking the image of a japanese boy. Good Luck!

Dayyumm, that's some creepy shiz. You should do some research on that little asian boy and maybe find out how he died or somthing or maybe try to communicate with it to see what he wants with your brother.

So, your sensative too. I developed my powers when I was 7. My family never came in contact with a ghost. My mother had a seance, my grandmother learned the black arts, but that's just passed memories. Any ways Japanese school boy, I laughed at that part. I think about that movie the grudge. What an awful movie, but in reality scary as s%#t.
