You’ll Think I’m Crazy
It’s difficult telling ghost stories to people because they often find it unbelievable. But when this person was 12 years old, a ghost visited them. “I was just drifting off when my mom taps me on the shoulder and says “Pssst. What are you doing?” I thought, that’s a very weird question, obviously I’m sleeping. So I turn around to answer her, only it’s not my mom. It’s not a person. It looked like a 3D shadow of a man. Just black. I screamed while my eyes were closed, and the figure disappeared.”
Honestly, they could’ve been dreaming, especially if they were only half awake. But the strange thing is that it doesn’t stop there. They put him to sleep in his brother’s room because he was too afraid to sleep. “My brother woke up once to go use the bathroom upstairs and I pretended I was asleep. I didn’t want him to know I was still afraid.” Understandably, as a kid, you wouldn’t want your brother to know you’re scared.
“I hear him go into my room, right next door, climb on the bed (springs) and then just stop, and I thought he was trying to purposefully scare me so I look up to show him I’m awake, and see the figure again. Arms crossed with its head resting on his hands. Even though it had no facial features whatsoever, I knew it was looking at me. I try to convince myself it’s just dark, it’s my brother playing a prank and I’m seeing things… then I heard the toilet flush upstairs.”
It was a ghost. There’s no other explanation. Years later, while this person was in their 20s, they felt a tap on their shoulder and the same whisper. Maybe a ghost is attached to them (via Playbuzz).
