The Person on the Stairs

We used to live in a little house, at the end of the village. My mom was working the night shift, so I had to be alone at the night.

I fell asleep in front of the TV and I woke up in the middle of the night with my back to the stairs...Suddenly, I had that strange, disturbing feeling that somebody or something watching me

I decided to turn towards the stairs and see what was there. I was pretty scared and my heart was beating so fast when I start to count to 3 and turn...

When I turned something ran up the stairs. I didn't see anything but I heard it! I was up all night watching the stairs. I stayed up until the sun came up. They were the longest hours of my life...

I never figured out what was in the house, and watching me while I was sleeping...

Don't Go Down To The Basement...

I lived in an apartment and my room was in the basement. When we moved in there were chalk drawings on the wall and we later found a metal skull hiding in the ceiling beams.

After that pictures with me in them started falling over and turning to face corners in the house. My mom started taping them in picture frames so they would stop shifting.

One night I heard my name being whispered in my ear like my girlfriend did when she wanted me to wake up.

I then felt pressure on my side I looked over and saw my shirt was pressed down and it looked like a hand print. I was so scared I didn't want to sleep in my room.

People don't believe me because I have night terrors that started with a young man and now it's a tall shadowy figure. They think it was all a dream.

The Faces In The Night

One night, I was just about to go to sleep, when I heard a little voice saying 'I'm coming up the stairs...' and I freaked!

Next I heard 'I'm at your bed stand...' I thought it was my mind playing tricks, until I saw the face. Three faces.

Three grown girls. One face was perfect, the next was scarred all over her face, and the last face had no eyes and her head was split in two.

Then it was morning and I never saw them again.

She's Under The Bed...

When I was about 12 I hid under my step-aunt's bed and scared her by grabbing her foot. She told me she was gonna get me good for that...

That night I woke to someone pulling on my foot at least three times. I kept saying 'That's not funny, Linny, I know it's you.'

By the fourth pull I sat up to yell at her...but she was out like a light and still in bed. It wasn't her.

I looked around but saw no one. Eventually I found out the story of the house.

For years, people thought a woman committed suicide in the kitchen...until they found out that her husband had murdered her...

When I was pregnant with my baby boy I moved into an old farmhouse with some friends. From the moment we moved in we heard weird noises. We joked it was a ghost and called him Fred.

One night I was all alone we had just finished unpacking the kitchen. We had hung up a cute little plaque in the kitchen.

I was in the living room watching TV when I heard knocking in the walls then footsteps walk into the kitchen. Then I heard a loud thump in the kitchen and went in and the plaque was on the counter.

I was so scared the baby started kicking really bad. I told 'Fred' he was scaring the baby and to stop. Everything stopped immediately.

A few nights later I got up to go to the bathroom and sitting at the kitchen table was an older man and a little girl wearing clothes from the late 1800's. They looked at me and smiled.

In the morning I told everyone I had the weirdest thing happen and my friend looked at me and said 'You saw them too, didn't you?'
