Chalk It Up to a Ghost

“When I was about 10 years old, I was convinced that there was the ghost of a little girl in my room. I would talk to her every night, and even though she wouldn’t respond, I always knew she was there.

One night I decided I wanted her to respond to me, so I looked all over my room for a piece of paper, but I couldn’t find one. Instead I pulled out an old, tiny, dusty chalkboard from my closet and set it on my bed next to a piece of chalk. I wasn’t quite sure what to ask, so I just said, “Um, so how many years have you been dead? Write your answer on the chalkboard if you are really here.’ Not thinking it would work, I fell asleep.

The next morning I got up, and looked at the chalkboard. There was no writing on it, so I picked it up to put it back in my closet. When I was walking there, the chalkboard hit the light. You could clearly see, written in the dust, the number 111. I don’t try to communicate with her anymore.”

Reader Submission: Haunted Nursery

“My junior year of high school, my family moved to a new house in Ohio. I loved the house because it was huge. It was built in 1892 and everything in the house still looked original (i.e the floors, the wooden stair case, the wooden detailed trim on the walls.) It was beautiful, a dream home for any large family.

I’ve never considered myself a ‘chicken’ and I’d never say I was easily scared, but I can promise you this, I’ll never step another foot in that house again.

More Strange Activity at the House on the Hill
It seems the haunted house on the hill is still quite active…

“So something creepy happened to John and the guy riding with him at the haunted house yesterday. He got his work truck stuck in the mud (which in itself is hilarious) and they were sitting in the truck about 50 or 60 feet from the house, waiting for my dad or bro to come pull them out. While waiting, John and the new guy started joking around and asking ‘the ghosts’ for help getting out of the mud. About 30 minutes into the wait, they suddenly started hearing music. Loud music. John described it as old timey jazz. It faded in and out a few times then they heard a couple strange moaning sounds. After that, it all stopped. About 20 minutes later, help arrived and pulled them out of the mud.”
