School House Experience

When I was younger I had a friend who lived beside a little two story old school house. I'm not exactly sure on how old the school was, but you could tell it was very old.

It was a small 2 story brick school house. It sat beside a field on the other side of the school, so the farmer that farmed the field beside it stored his tractors and field equipment in there during the summer.

Being the mischievous kids we were we always snuck in there to check it out. The stairs that lead to the upstairs were not suitable for walking, very unsteady, so we were always afraid to go up there.

One day we were downstairs and we heard people talking. My friend and I just thought it was coming from her house, so thought nothing of it. Then we heard kids laughing so we thought that was strange because the nearest kids were down on the other street, so we knew it wasn't them. It sounded like it was coming from upstairs, so my friend wanted to see if anyone was up there (knowing that there wasn't!). I was afraid to see what might be up there and I also was afraid to walk on the stairs, but managed to do so anyway.

When we got to the top of the stairs everything got quiet. We moved slowly into the room and it was dark and dirty, there were a few old broken desks up there. All of a sudden it got really cold and my friend turned to me with a frightened look on her face and said "we have to go" I was confused and asked her why and she said "because he said so" That freaked me out so I grabbed her arm and dragged her out of the school. We went to her house and I asked her "Who told you we had to leave?" and she said "I don't know, it sounded like a man whispered it in my ear". I left it at that and I never went back in there!!
