Ghost Stories

Just one of many

I hope I can explain this clear enough...

My husband, two year old daughter, and I moved into a duplex in 1996. The second week we moved in my sister and her teenage girls along with friend came over for a week on visit. While they were there a couple weird things happened. First of all my sister was leaving my house in the middle of the day and the top sliding lock, locked all by itself while she was opening the door. (keep in mind, the lock was crooked so you would always have to jiggle the door to lock it) Well, she was not very impressed and told everyone my house was haunted. Also one night, one of the boys staying with us swares he woke up and saw a man standing by the bathroom staring at him and the others sleeping in the living room. Ok, please keep in mind my husband has a job where he is gone for weeks at a time. I really didnt want to accept any of this, and I told myself if it was truely a ghost he or it was nice and I didnt have to worry. Over the years, it seemed to come and go. Also, everyone in the apartment next to us either got divorced or put in jail or tryed to kill themselves during our stay of 6? years there. It seemed like their lives always feel apart after they moved in. Atleast 6 familys. Back to the events. My coffee pot would always turn on by itself multipy times thoughout the day, no biggy I would tell myself. Looking back why didnt I just unplug it? I wouldnt admit what was going on. I would always hear walking upstairs even when the apartment next door was empty. We got a kitten she was always freaking out for no reason. She would be on the back of the couch and just start jumping and hissing at nothing. One night while my husband was gone, I had just went to bed and turned off the light. She was laying on the foot of the bed. I pulled the covers up to my chin. All of a sudden I felt this rush of cold cover my face and hands like cold water running down without the wet. And my cat was suddenly off the bed screaching and freaking out. I sat up and turned on the light she was in the hallway looking in my room very wide eyed. She never slept in that bed again when my husband was gone until we moved. Another night, we had just gotten a puppy little white fluff ball. We would put her on my daughters bed for a companion to try and stop our daughter from coming in our bed. Well one night I was laying in bed with my light on (again my husband was out of town) and I heard my daughter talking in her sleep. I sat up and tryed to hear what she was saying (thinking how cute) all of a sudden I saw this small white thing come out of her room and go down the hallway up the stairs. I thought oh my gosh our puppy learned how to jump out of the bed. So I got up to go get her, walked by my daughters room and realized our dog was still on the bed looking at me, while my daughter slept. It wasnt her that had jumped down and went up the stairs. My husband dosent believe in any of this kind of thing. He would always make me feel like it was in my head or something. There has to be a reasonable explanation, he would say. Many other small things happened. Anyway we finally moved out. The first night in our new house everyone slept great. It was like we forgot what a relaxing home was like. I remember waking up and feeling at peace finally. Not worried about what might happen. Anyway, a week after moving in we had a party and after a couple beers my husband confessed that he had seen a young boy with blond hair walk up the stairs one evening. But again he would not admit he thought it was a ghost. I dont understand him at all. He wouldnt make it up he is not like that, but yet he wont talk about it anymore. Im glad my friend and family heard him too. Boy he makes me mad. My neice also told me that when she was staying with us a green scary face came shooting at her one night. She said she closed her eyes, but when she opened them it was still there. Then she closed her eyes again opened them and it was gone. They said they didnt want to make things worse for me because they new I was nervous about the place. I think I should have known. Anyway, I wont even drive by the house though. Im scared It might try to follow me home or something. Sorry so long.....
