We Clean A Haunted House 3


This story is for all the gentle people who are more attuned to the spirit world, who have seen, felt and reveled in the knowledge that there is life after death and we are privileged to have had these wonderful if not sometime frightening experiences. This story is for the same people who live among mortals who just don't get us at all.

I am married to Wayne, a wonderful man who at times has looked at me as if I had taken a liking to drinking out of strange toilets. I would tell him about my experiences at the haunted house and he would laugh and say "that's nice dear" like I was telling him about what's for dinner. I would always say to him "next time I am taking you with me" and he would say "never!" Well as fate would have it "never" came about a month later with a big change in our financial situation.

My hubby lost his job, so with a quick decision to not upset our finances, I went back to a career, and Wayne took over a portion of the house cleaning while he looked for another job. That meant yes, he would have to clean the Haunted House. He started cleaning the house several weeks ago. The first couple times there was nothing, not a peep. I think my little buddy was afraid of my husband, all cranky six foot four of him. That would scare any little kid. I would ask Wayne "did you see or hear anything" He would say "no". Then one day the little fella decided to come out and play.

Wayne was in the master bathroom (typical hot spot). He said while he was cleaning the shower he heard a little voice say "Hi" Wayne thinking that the family came home stepped out of the bathroom to see who was there. He called out and no one answered. He quickly finished up and gathered all his supplies and headed out to the hallway. On the landing before the steps was a ball a stuffed animal and a doll, all lined up. Wayne knew they were not there when he came up the steps, in fact he had seen the doll in the corner of the bedroom earlier. He was in disbelief! Of course someone surely must be playing tricks on him. He told me he searched the house but there was not a soul there, he also said when he was downstairs ready to leave, he heard the sound of children running in the hall upstairs. Hmmmmm... I am trying to keep a straight face and not be my usual sarcastic self. But I can't help myself... I say "that's nice dear" The next visit brought even more fun and games and had my husband re-thinking this whole ghost thing.

Wayne went to the haunted house last Friday. He said he went into the house and everything seemed pretty normal. He said he was mopping the kitchen floor and he started hearing sounds as if someone was banging on the floor above him. He would stop working and the banging would stop, soon as he would start mopping the banging would start again. He finally decided to go check it out. He went upstairs and couldn't find anything that would make that bang. He went back down the steps and as he got to the bottom something bounced past him "what?" it's a little rubber ball... Wayne was now remembering all my stories that include the rubber ball and started to get a little unnerved. He explained to me that the next 2 hours were spent dodging flying dolls, balls, picking up toys that appeared from nowhere and thinking "Keep going, get done and get the hell out of here" Finally he finished up, he was barely in the car and dialing on his cell phone, Who? Yes me, the crazy wife who see's ghosties...

I guess I am not so crazy.

I think Wayne has a new appreciation for the brave woman he is married to, who week after week returned to the haunted house alone. I have a new appreciation for Wayne and the pleasure in knowing that I am now married to a believer...

I love you honey!

Great story Haunted Cleaner! I think it's fantastic that your husband got a taste of what you've been trying to show him for such a long time. I bet you couldn't stop smiling all day the first time he told you he had an encounter! Ha ha! 😆
But seriously, have you tried to learn a bit more about the history of the property? I'm not sure if the owners would think that was strange or not but you might consider asking them about the presence (s) in the house. I'd be willing to bet they have some stories of their own to share with you.
I haven't seen any of your other stories so I am going to check them out right now! I can't wait to read about your other encounters!
Please check out my stories if you get the chance. Thanks for sharing!

Great stories, Haunted Cleaner, and a pleasure to read. I could sit and read your tales all day.

I think the thing that would've freaked me out the most is that little rubber ball rolling from out of nowhere.

As for your hubby, glad to see he finally knows what a brave lady he's married to.

I think it's very sad and disappointing that a person evidently trusts another enough to marry them and yet, time and time again, does not believe their spouse when they recount an experience such as a paranormal one. What can we conclude from this? It means that this person to whom one is married feels that the other's judgment is just not up to snuff--in essence that they do not trust them.

Funny, that considering that the given person's judgment was such that they chose this person who now doubts them for a spouse. I think that's very kind of you and shows a largesse of spirit that you understood his disbelief and forgive him. I also hope that a very humble apology on his part has been prepared and delivered to you.

That's what a gentleman would do.

Great story it all started with hi, then the fun and games started, I guess our spirit friends too would get a kick out of converting a 6foot 4 inch non believer,😆

Hainted: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!...That is too funny! 😆...I think my husband is convinced now too, after something that he and my son searched the garage three or four times over, finally "appeared" a couple of days later where BOTH of them had looked several times because that is where he left it... He asked me, "how do they DO that?" LOL... I dunno!...Then my clock radio keeps going static-y, and he wants to know "what the hell that noise is"...I tell him it's my ghosties saying HI!...

Good story, like the others 😊, in my faves... ❤

Added this one to my favorites!

I just love when non-believers who look at you cross-ways when you talk about paranormal things get a dose of it themselves. And suddenly they are running to you with their stories and you have a nice little opportunity to say, gently, "I told you so!"

Or, in your case, "that's nice dear". Hahaha! Well done!

Haunted cleaner - how did I miss your first two stories?! Omigosh... Absolutely wonderful! I'm sitting at work (shhh), reading these and laughing out loud. Thank God everyone else is at lunch!

The little boy, oh how sweet! I've had a couple of little girls and they are a complete joy to have around. You never know what's going to happen next.

I completely understand the "where do they go when they aren't here" thing. I wonder it all the time. Maybe they do vacation; summer home, winter home, etc. Why not?

I truly enjoyed reading these. I'll be reading them again.

Guess the little boy figured Wayne was okay to play with, huh?

So, who was more surprised, your sister or your husband? And who was more apologetic? 😆

Looking forward to more.

Haunted Cleaner, I really enjoy reading your stories. You always somehow manage to express humor over fear, and that is refreshing. Please keep us updated 😊
