Having someone in your house though, does ease that a bit. How long did you watch it before freaking out and bolting? How much detail can you remember? Im interested more in what it looked like.
Usually when you come face to face with a spirit like I have, your mind blots a lot of the details out, the only things I remember of the ghost I saw, was that it was a woman that was in her late 70's if not 80's, and she was misty black colour and looked extremely angry, which is why I was so scared of her and shot out of the kitchen.
Well anyway about my story, my mother was moved all over the country during her youth, and at one point she lived in a mansion up above a town on a hill, so im told. She says that the whole place felt uneasy for her, there was something too foreign and strange about it.
Mansions do usually make people feel uneasy, mainly because in a ghost film, it's usually always based in a mansion of some type, House on Haunted Hill, Thirteen Ghosts and Haunted House are very good examples of this, so their first instinct is to be uneasy, and almost all the time, someone has died in a mansion because they are very old buildings.
She says that the very first night she went to bed at about 11 and just lie there for a bit with her hand hanging off the edge of the bed. After she had just began to doze off a sudden gust welled up under her bed and she felt something pass through her arm. From that nght on she's never slept with her hand off the edge...neither have i.
My cousin has felt the same experience of something passing through her hand when it was off the bed, however, I'm a very heavy sleeper so I would never know of such things, and I'm sure I've slept with my hand over the edge of the bed, it does sound quite creepy though so I hope it's never happened to me during my lifetime, haha.
The next night she was still a bit uneasy about one happened, this is probably the part id hate to be in most, and went to bed again about eleven. Again she was just beginning to doze off when her door creaked open, just a little. She heard foot like steps padding slowly towards her bed, and then, get this, climb into bed with her. She could feel something very cold, and wettish (you know the feeling where you think somethings wet but isnt?) right next to her, and also hear it breathing. She just bit her tounge and tried to go to sleep, she didn't tell me anything else about that night but i felt like there was something she wasn't saying.
Sounds more of a ghoul than a ghost, yes, they're completely different things, a ghost is an entity that follows you or stays around the place they died, a ghoul is a ghost that is purposely trying to scare or touch you all the time, that would scare the hell out of me if I was to actually FEEL something paranormal touch me, just seeing something like that is bad enough for me. You should try and get more information from her about that event, I bet there was more, it could have even been a poltergeist.
Then the NEXT night, she slept at a friends house and her dad slept in her room that night. She came back the next day to find her father yelling at her like a madman for waking him up in the middle of the night banging against the windows and doors in the room. There's a bit more detail to this part but i can't remember it clearly. Everyone that slept in that room though had something similar to say about banging windows or doors, or some presence of some sort.
Definitely sounds like a poltergeist now, ghosts can move stuff slightly, but they can't full on bang through things to have waken someone up, like, they could move something off the edge of a surface or turn handles slightly, but to bash windows, that's the work of something like a poltergeists, nasty things, search around for them more, or even call an excorist to find out what the problem is, they don't just deal with exorcisms or demons but all paranormal activity.
They finally got the hell out of that house when my mothers sister woke up one day covered in some sort of acidic liquid. She still has the scars.
Fucking hell, and at this point, I'd be out of that house and very far away.
This storys always freaked me out, and i don't know if i did it justice telling it secondhand. If i didn't, i'd like to tell you that it can seem very tense and horrifying if told by someone that was actually there :3
When people tell you stories like this in real life it does seem a bit more tense and scary because they're describing it in the way they felt, they're putting feeling into the words, whereas on here it's just text on a screen and is hard for people to understand how it actually is if they've never experienced anything like this before. But I agree, they are freaky and this sounds horrifying.
