My house is haunted
Submitted by CorpseQueen
For as long as I can remember my house has been haunted. This is a record of mine and others experiences, though most are mine since the others tend to dismiss them, they don't believe in ghosts. The older ones will not have dates but ones that happen after this will.
Red-Eyes - So, when I was about five I woke in the middle of the night from a nightmare, I had never had one before or since. I knew I was awake because I had fallen out of my bed, and like any kid I headed to my parents' room. So I turn to leave and above my doorway are these giant, glowing red eyes just looking at me. So I run to my parents' room. Looking back now I know that it was a supernatural creature, but at the time I, for some reason, told my Mom my brother was spying on me. I haven't seen them since.
My brother was possessed - This is an experience from my parents. When I was young my brother was a dip, so to try to get him to respect us girls more, and I don't know why she thought that this would work, my Mom painted Bible verses on his wall. She said that as soon as my brother entered the room he started screaming that it hurt and to take them off. We asked her why she didn't think that he was acting and she said that he seemed to be in actual pain and eventually stop fighting and just laid there. I don't know if it worked because I was too young to remember and my parents said no more on the matter.
The Caretaker - From this ghost I get more the feeling of protectiveness than malice. My parents fight a lot so I have some trouble falling asleep scared what might happen, this first happened after one of the fights. I was in my bed, a bunk bed, and you could feel the tension in the house. I was facing the wall when I felt a hand on my hair, almost petting me. Thinking it was my mom, I rolled over but no one was there. This has happened repeatedly for years now, even when there hasn't been a fight. Since this is all there is on this one I won't update every time it happens, only if something changes.
The Face - This is something my sister experienced but came to me straight after. She was in my parents' bathroom taking a selfie, since she says that there is better lighting in there. She was alone but when she looks at the picture there was a face above her right shoulder. When she showed it to me I noted that the face seemed to be of a man, but was twisted in agony. I got a definite sense of malice just from the picture. I will try to get her to send me the picture if she still has it. She denied it being a ghost, saying that it was just a reflection of herself, but last I checked she wasn't a man.
The Dancing Man - Just a few months ago I was on my bed with my cat when I noticed her staring at something in the direction of my parents' room. Following her gaze I saw someone peeking around their doorway. It was tall but completely covered in shadows, I wouldn't have noticed it if it was completely still, but he was making this weird move, peering around the door frame then crouching and moving out of sight, all in one fluid motion. I know what you are going to say, it was someone from your family, but it wasn't. My brother was in the bathroom right near my room, my older sister was at work, my little sister was in her room and I would have seen her leave because her doorway was right next to mine, and my Mom was asleep and would also be too short to be the man anyway. I thought it was my Dad, but then he came out of the room and walked right past the thing. I don't know if it was the same being that was in my sister's picture, but I haven't seen it since. 4/4/17: After doing some research I have concluded the entity to be this: A shadow person (also known as a shadow figure, shadow being or black mass) is the perception of a patch of shadow as a living, humanoid figure, particularly as interpreted by believers in the paranormal or supernatural as the presence of a spirit or other entity.
The Passing Shadow - I was in my room with the door semi-closed, leaving enough space to see out of. Out of the corner of my eye I see a shadow pass by then go back the way it came. I thought it was my little sister going to the bathroom to grab something. Because of the way the rooms are arranged, the room my older sister and I share is at the end of a hallway with my little sister on one side with the bathroom on the other. The shadow was child sized so it couldn't have been my brother who is over 6 feet tall. Then I see it pass by again doing the same thing as before, it repeats this pattern a few times and I was starting to get annoyed. When my little sister came to get me for dinner I told her to stop walking in front of my door. She replied that she had been downstairs the whole time. I now keep the door fully open or shut. 4/4/17: There is a possibility of this creature being a shadow person like the Dancing Man, but I do not believe so due to the fact that most reports of shadow people have them watching or approaching a person, not walking by them.
