Real Ghost Stories

Middle School Pianist


I think it was year before last, I was in 6th grade. It was the summer, and I had flunked math. I was in summer school. Well, as usual in Arizona, it was a really hot summer day, so my friend and I went inside to our designated classroom because it was nice and cool. We started playing on the computers and listening to music, when all of a sudden, something out of the corner of my eye catches my attention.

I slowly turn around to face it, and it's a black shadow gliding across the room and then it vanishes into the wall. My friend starts freaking out because he saw it too. When we finally calm down, we hear a piano playing upstairs. My friend tells me, "I have to go to the bathroom, and I'm going to see who is playing the piano so well". I agree, and after about 15 minutes, he comes running back downstairs, very hysterical, mind you, and tells me that when he checked who was playing the piano, it stopped and he heard female footsteps (meaning that she was wearing high heels or pumps).

I say okay and then I go to check, since the piano is playing again. I get to the specific room, and I open the door. The piano stops playing and all of a sudden, the black figure appears, pointing its finger at me. I scream and faint in the doorway. Apparently, my friend heard me and he ran up stairs to see if I was okay.

He called the hospital and they say that I was mumbling something like, "I'm here for you. I'm going to get you. The devil is waiting for you!" Which is weird because that was what I remember the ghost was saying to me, like it was talking to me in my mind?

Thank you for reading.

I am in agreement with zzsgranny on this one! Where was everyone else? You say you were in summer school surely it would have been a adult who called the hospital. I suppose like the rest I will have to wait for answer to questions.

Im in agreement with you on this one granny my friend. Pewma where was everyone else? This question I believe needs be addressed as a few other questions I have for you are related to this one being answered.

Thank you for sharing.

Pewma: I'm of the belief that most shadow people just don't have enough energy to fully manifest... I think the words spoken by the spirit were a warning to you to change your ways, or suffer the consequences: "The devil is waiting for you"...These are words that some people spew to scare the bajeezus out of others to get them to fly straight or burn in Hell 😆...

But my questions for you are: where the heck was everybody else?...Were you and your friend the only ones in the building at the time, and if so, why?

Good story, thanks for posting! 😊

first to emeraldangel: uh... God took away powers from satan and his followers... So they wouldn't have been able to kill you, writhing pewma anyway. It clearly states that in the bible emeraldangel.


^link for emeraldangel to read that God took away their powers.

Writhing pewma: shadow person... Some people think that some shadow people are lower demons that can't do really anything to a person other than scare them. If this hasn't been going on anymore... You really have nothing to worry about. But if you feel afraid or anything just rebuke whatever it is in the name of Jesus.

OR if you don't follow God then you can always find out what you can do with whatever faith you follow.

And I can't answer your question if it was talking in your mind or not. I'm not educated in that area on the paranormal. I've heard different things on whether beings/entities can talk in your head or not and that's why I don't know what to tell you.

Hope I helped some!:)

I believe that this is a tormented spirit.

I do not believe the devil was waiting for you. That is ridiculous.
