Ghostly Experiences

Ihave had a many strange things happen to me over time. These may not compare to some of the other stories on here, but I would still like to share these with you.

The first strange thing that I remember ever happening to me was when I was 6 years old. I remember waking up in the middle of the night, and I looked across the room and saw a white smoke, in the exact form of a child sitting on top of my toy box. I do not know if it was a girl or a boy, but I clearly remember being able to see through it to my leopard poster behind it.

At first, I thought it was my little brother wanting to sleep in my bed again because he was 3 and he always got scared for no reason. I told him to leave, and it didn't move. It sat there like it was observing me, watching me very closely. I wasn't scared though because I really had no idea what it was. I looked at my door, then looked back, and it was gone.

Another thing that happened when I was 6, I woke up in the middle of the night because I was thirsty, and I looked at my open closet. I saw a big black shadow like a man that looked like my dad's size, and I said "Daddy?" and it stopped walking in my closet and turned toward me. Suddenly a horrible feeling came over me and I screamed. My mom and dad ran into the room and nothing was there. They said I was dreaming.

A few years after, when my little brother was 6 years old, he said to me, "I am too scared to sleep in my room tonight." I asked why, and he said I would get scared if he told me. I urged him to, and he told me that the previous night he had woken up and saw a shadow similar to the one I saw in my closet. I had never even told him about the shadow in my room either, but the description was the same as mine.

When I was about 12 years old, I was sitting on the couch looking out the window to my backyard, and I noticed I saw the name "Jay" in the grass. I looked away and looked back but it was there still. I went outside and kicked it hoping it would mess up the grass. But it was still there. It was then that I started seeing the name Jay all over the place, blended into the wall and stuff. I told my best friend about this, and then she started seeing the name everywhere, too!

Another time, I sneaked out with my friend and we were walking around my neighborhood and I thought I saw a man in gray working on a car at the end of the road. I said, "Whoah, I am seeing things." And my friend didn't say anything, but when we got to the spot where I saw it, and Emily said, "Hey, wasn't there a guy fixing his car here?"

Recently, I have been having strange things happen to me, too. In the morning, I always sit in my room in the dark, drying my hair. I was all bundled up in my covers, and I then started thinking about the scary stories I read on this site, and I felt cold air rush past my feet, but they were under the covers. Then today, it happened again when I thought about the stories on here. Coincidence?
