My First Encounter With A Ghost

Living in the country as a child on a large farm, one evening my two younger brothers and an older sister and I were in the family living room...listening to the record player....giving away my age now..LOL
There is three doors in this room...The front door to the house, a door going to the kitchen and a door going into a bedroom...

While the record was changing....
the door to the bedroom opened slightly, it always stayed closed,

I remember I was setting on the couch ,
still to this day the same couch faces that bedroom door,
I was looking right at this door and what appeared, scared all of us kids..to death
..we ranged in age,
I think I was about 7yrs sister would have been 10years old, brothers would have been 5 and 3 years old, and my youngest brother still remembers it like yesterday....can't quite remember our ages but do remember that hand, even typing about it brings back that memory...

I was the first one that noticed the door opening a bit more and I said "LOOK there is a hand"....when we all seen it, and it left as fast as got the words out of my mouth....all of us Seen this hand...everyone of us but the 5 year old brother didn't see it
We all Screamed like crazy and ran out of the living room to the Den, where Mom was and Daddy was in the bathroom......
We all refer to this as the Hand!!
we all recall different things about it my older sister seen a ring on the middle finger.....
I recall the robe like sleeve it had on, also it looked like lace around the edge of the sleeve...
and of course the fingers we seen that as well....I think the fingers were the creepy part, the fingers looked as if they had been stricken with something awful. not human looking...Long fingers , joints that were bent weird....hard to put into words really....
all the other spirits I have seen haven't really scared me, but the hand did...but it was also the first of many odd things I have seen...thanks for reading...by the way I am not to good of a writer...This is the first story I have written for others to read....
