No getting away from 'it'!
I am not infrequently invited to people's houses to investigate hauntings
or similar outré occurences.
Needless to say, I was somewhat startled by this, but regaining my equanimity I attempted to make contact. The old lady soon identified herself as my friend's Grandmother, who had passed away some months previously. (I should say, these communications are, in my experience, almost always some form of telepathy: the thoughts just 'form' in my mind, and I reply in a similar fashion...)
I 'asked' the spirit why
she visited her Grand-daughter so frequently: the reply almost caused
me to laugh at loud! She enjoyed the young woman's virtuoso piano playing!
At the time, moreover, my friend was an active member of an operatic society
and was also learning to play the guitar!
Time passed: my friend could
no longer stand the unexpected visits, and gave up the piano, the operatic
society and the guitar! Furthermore, she and her family moved some distance
away: in the way of friendship, we lost touch for some years....

Hello David! I really enjoy
reading your site, but thought it was about time I made a contribution:
like most people, I have at least one story to tell!
Hi David & Sue! Chilling tales? I have a true story that you might consider posting...
It was just like any other ordinary day. I had finished my home work and had gotten into bed. I couldn't sleep, so I was just staring out into the hall that is across my room. By this time it had gotten quite dark but I still couldn't sleep. I started noticing a curious point of light that made my dark hall suddenly appear brighter. To my horror, the curious point of light started materializing into the shape of a fuzzy 'something' . It was difficult to make out at first, but suddenly I could see the shape of a young woman in an old-fashioned night gown right where the point of light had been.
At first I could not believe my eyes so I decided to check if I was dreaming. I rubbed my eyes:- I wasn't! I was so terrified that I dove under my multiple down quilts and comforters. This is the scary part..... the ghostly visitor then proceeded to come say 'Hi !' I felt a sudden hair raising chill travel up my back as all the heat from my many coverings drained out as easy as helium flows out of a balloon. I tried covering myself with more blanket, but I could not seem to gain any warmth whatsoever . This happened a second time, accept this time I was more chilled than anything I'd ever felt.
That was the end of the physical appearances but not the mental and spiritual appearances. A few days later my vitamin cup went missing. This is an object of no value whatsoever, but meant something to me. All my family members were questioned about this missing item but it had disappeared. A few days before the second coincidence I discovered my vitamin cup on the floor and "coincidentally " stepped on it and the corner fell off.
Within the next weeks and months various objects in my possession went missing and were never found including, again, the vitamin bowl!
Since then I have found out that the house is 80 years old and used to belong to two old sisters . My ghostly visitor has never been seen again, but I always keep a Bible handy just in case!
