Reader Submission: Imaginary Friend?

creepy girl Reader Submission: Imaginary Friend?

“My story isn’t exceptionally frightening, but it’s been a bit of a discovery for me. I’ve only recently figured this out.

Anyway, when I was younger, maybe four or five, I had this single imaginary friend called Claire. She wasn’t like a typical four year old’s imaginary friend. She didn’t have any super powers, nor did she wear any cool clothes. She was an ordinary girl with short brown hair and a champagne pink colored dress that was kind of old fashioned.

One particular thing I remember about Claire is that she was barefoot, all the time. I don’t remember ever playing with Claire. She was just there, with me, everyday. I don’t know about you, but I find it strange that she looked like she was from a different era, maybe 50 or so years before I was born. How can a four year old picture a person like that with so much detail?

I would often converse with Claire. My mum would catch me, often in the hallway of our home, chatting away. My mum knew about Claire so she knew what I was doing. Recently, my mum told me that one time she found me sitting in the hallway, crying and holding my knee. I had grazed it somehow and she asked me what happened. I replied, still crying, that Claire had pushed me over. Mum was a little creeped out, but she brushed it off as me blaming my imaginary friend for something I did myself.

Only this kept happening. Mum would find me with a new scratch or bruise every so often, and every time she asked me what happened I would say the same thing: Claire pushed me over. One time my mum actually found what looked like a hand shaped bruise on my back when she was giving me a bath. Mum was getting really stressed and quite scared.

Thankfully, Claire seemed to just disappear one day. Although 12 years later, I still feel as though someone is behind me every time I walk down my hallway.”

Did My Son See a Ghost?

figure at bed Did My Son See a Ghost?

This happened a few days ago with my son, William, age 2:

William leaves his bed and comes into the living room.
“Mommy, who’s that man looking at me from the blinds?”
Concerned about a prowler, I rush to his room to investigate. However, the blinds are closed and no one is around.
Me: “What are you talking about? There’s no one here.”
William stares up at the ceiling near the window.
“He’s up there.”
“Where?”
William points up and continues to stare.
“Up there. Why is that man looking at me?”
“I don’t see anyone. What does the man look like?”
“Like a monster.”

My son seemed curious, not scared, which leads me to believe he didn’t actually see a man’s head hovering over the window. However, it still creeped me out!

Who else out there has been spooked by something their kids said or did?
