The Old House

When I was 7 I lived in this old house (I don’t live there anymore) and it was haunted. My first scary experience with a ghost was when me and my mum were playing games in the lounge room. My dad had just left for work. It was early in the morning so it was still dark outside. I was sitting next to the TV waiting for mum to go get the game when I look up our hallway, and at the end of the hallway there’s our spare room. I saw a man sitting on the couch! He was wearing some kind of black cloak, and he was staring right at me. It didn’t really scare me because my mum had told me about ghost and how they can’t hurt you.

I pointed at the man and told mum. She went up the hallway into the room and was asking where he was. I didn’t want mum up in the room because of the ghost so I kept yelling "MUM COME BACK!" and right when I said that the ghost turned its head and looked at my mum. The next day I went in the room and nothing was there.

There was another ghost in the house, a little girl who used sing and run up and down our hallway. I saw her once, she had Long hair the a bow with a pink dress. I could always here her singing!

Anyways, more about the spare room. It was always cold in there! One night I was watching TV in there and fell asleep on the couch. I had nightmares about the man killing my family. I woke up and I had wet my pants! Anyone who went in that room had bad feelings about it. Another time I was sleeping in my room when I heard loud footsteps in the hallway, I heard my door open then I felt something sit on my bed. That house was definitely haunted!
