Ghost Of Landlady's Husband Or A "recording"I rented a room in central Connecticut for about a year and a half from a woman who was a widow.
This house had a feeling of stress to it, compounded by the fact that she had, as I discovered, a hoarding disorder. The ba
I was not extremely happy while I was living there. My landlady was a very self-centered person and ignored her dog. The poor little thing was neglected, and so I took it under my wing and cared for it. I was going through a lot personally and it was strange living in another person's house, particularly someone I had nothing in common with.
While I was there I never liked going downstairs at night when I was alone. She spent weekends at her boyfriend's house quite frequently.
One night in winter I was sitting in the small living room next to her stove - the kind you heat with gas pellets that has a flame. All of a sudden (mind you I was alone) I felt that there was someone in the room with me. It freaked me out so bad I ran upstairs.
The weirdest part of this story happened a few months before I left. I slept in my landlady's former master bedroom, the one she had shared with her husband. For about two weeks the room at night seemed to get colder and colder and I was having a lot of trouble sleeping.
This is where it gets weird. I don't expect anyone to believe me but it's all true. I woke up one night and looked at the clock and it was about 4:15am. This was during the worst of the insomnia. I rolled over and looked at the far end of the room where there was a desk and a mirrored table.
There was a dark shape lying there facing me - like it was levitating - and I could see curly hair but no face. The figure was looking at me and I knew it was a man. I screamed and turned the light on and it disappeared.
Some facts: the landlady's first husband had apparently abused her. I ended up talking to her boyfriend later who stated that the neighbors next door had called the guy "evil". That was weird b/c that's how I felt when I saw this thing, whatever it was. He stated he had written a poem about the husband and described him as having an "aura of evil". I asked if the husband had curly hair and he said yes. That chilled me.
I posted this on a ghost site and someone said I may have seen a kind of "recording" of the man and felt what the woman felt. It was a really malignant entity, whatever it was.
This is my one and only ghost experience and it scared the hell out of me. I moved out eventually and never want to go through something like that again. I'm empathic and believe I was picking up on the emotional vibes in that place big time. Thanks for reading.
