Real Ghost Stories

Not Wanted


I live in the country of North Carolina, out in Person County to be more exact. One day while riding here and there on my four-wheeler, I actually caught a glimpse of an old graveyard. It was somewhat covered in all sorts of plant-life but once I got a good look at it I realized that some graves weren't marked or were sunken in.

The following weekend, me and my friend Bobby rode back down to the graveyard. Of course we did this around 1 or 2 in the morning, genius us right? Crickets, frogs and whatever else that could make a noise was doing so quite loudly. Me and Bobby walked down the path and left the four-wheeler behind. About 15 steps in everything went silent. You could hear a pin drop. We turned back to the four-wheeler and hopped on then Bobby told me to floor it and so I did. As we sped off he stated that he saw a black figure throw something at us and when we stopped about 100-200 feet up ahead of the path, we checked ourselves. We each had the same length, depth, and position cuts on our right ankles.

Till this day I am iffy about going back to that place even if someone else is there with me. Sometimes things just want to be left alone. Maybe it was their way of saying we are not wanted.

The country as in farmland and all of that Claws... I know North Carolina is a state since I live in it. Since it has mountains, beach, city, country and suburbia I would figure to at least tell people which part this took place in.

Pretty cool! I live in Granville county, pretty close to ya'.
I have seen quite a few family graveyards, and old grave yards laying around, long since forgotten! I have always been too chicken to investigate though!
I hope I get to see more from you and your adventures in ghost hunting! 😉

Thanks for getting back to me UnknownSky. So with the path clear of plant life than I would have to say it is a mystery how you both got those cuts. Yes granny that's what I was going for. Keeper or watcher of sorts. Thanks 😊 😉

As mentioned Some if not Most graveyards have a resident keep normally the first body burried in their boarders, Its this spirits job to guard the land from anyone causing harm there, hence a bad reason to banish them and or to visit them,

Unknownsky: I think the caretaker that cosmo was refering to is what I call the "Keeper"...The spirit that makes sure that no-one messes with the people who are at rest in his cemetery...

I agree with cosmo and mike about the keeper...

Seems like some graveyards have spirits watching over them.

What UnknownSky meant was that he was in a rural area, not that he thinks North Carolina is an independant country.

For the record, North Carolina is not a country. It's a state.

cosmogal926, me and bobby were wearing socks and shoes and it was one of those cuts that irritate when rubbed against. Not too deep but deep enough. Like I said there was plant-life everywhere but it was a path so there wasn't tree's and stuff in our way 😁 Hunters use it in order to go back into a field during deer hunting season (which of course it wasn't and it was after dark and late as heck). The graveyard I'm sure had no caretaker. I might be able to get some pics soon but as I said, I even feel iffy going there without someone else.

Hello UnknownSky, Just a couple of questions regarding the cuts on your ankles. What did they look like, did you both have the same number of scratches, were they bleeding, could it have been possible that you and your friend were scratched up by all the weeds and plant life you mentioned? The black figure your friend saw could have been the old care taker of the graveyard who was still doing his job. Thanks for the post, and take care 😊 ❤

Hi Unknown Sky, think you hit the nail on the head, some things are just best being left alone and your spirit in the graveyard made that perfectly clear! Enjoyed reading this though 😊
