    Rap! Rap! Rap!

    Last Halloween, my friends dared me to go into a haunted house.  Supposedly, people could hear rapping sounds at midnight.  So I rose to the occasion and went in there right at midnight. I entered, but I couldn't hear anything.  It still looked spooky though...

    My Demon

    Hey, I'm 18 and I live in the north of England in a house with my Mum and her partner. I have had several experiences with ghosts since I started living here a few months ago, which I thought for a long time were due to the spirit of an old man who used to live in this house. It...

    Stories

    Honestly, I like any kind of story, but ghost stories are intriguing because you never really know where they came from, why they came about or if they could have been true or not.

    ~The Man~

    My dad died a number of years ago.

    I have since seen him in my front room. I am sure that he is watching over me. I felt the arms of a young child warp her arms around my waist, I was standing in what was her bedroom at the time. I have heard noises and seen things out of the corner of my eye. On the evening of...

    I Don't Know Why

    I love ghost storeis and I can't put my figner on why. I love the suspense. The fact that we don't know if it's real or not. Our own interpretations of the story. Those heart stopping moments *X*

    Interesting

    I have always found ghost stories interesting. What fascinates me is why the ghosts return and what they do to let their presence be known. I wrote about ghosts for my English term paper this past semester. I learned that most ghosts are not harmful-they do what they do to let...

    They're Curious...

    I dunno why, but they intrigue me, beguile me... LOL... I love reading and hearing 'true' ghost stories, the mystery of it all... That very slight fear of the unknown, of that which we cannot see, just adds that much more to the experience.
