Imaginary friends. Pretend playmates? Or something more sinister? The five creepy tales below come from Reddit.com and show that imaginary friends aren’t always the stuff of make believe.

The Girl in the Closet

“When my daughter was three she had an imaginary friend named Kelly who lived in her closet. Kelly sat in a little rocking chair while she slept, played with her, etc. Typical imaginary friend shit. Anyway, fast forward two years, the wife and I are watching the new Amityville (the one with Ryan Reynolds) and our daughter walks out right when dead girl goes all black eyed. Far from being disturbed she said ‘That looks like Kelly.’ ‘Kelly who?’ we say ‘You know the dead girl that lived in my closet.'” – Original thread

Reader Submission: Haunted Bedroom

“When I was about 7 years old, I shared a room with my younger brother. One night, we were going to bed. After we turned out the lights and tucked ourselves into our beds, I saw a blue flash above our beds. It stayed for about a few seconds, but it was almost as if my eyes were playing tricks on me. It was almost as if someone had taken a picture and that lingering blob light thing was in front of my face.

At first, I thought it was nothing. However, my brother said out loud in a scared voice ‘Hey, did you see that blue flash?’. I couldn’t believe he saw it too. We have no idea what it was, but we both saw it so I wasn’t imagining things.

Later on in the year in that same room, we were again in bed, and my brother was asleep, but I was lying awake. Out of nowhere, my lunch kit that was on top of my dresser flew off, hit the garbage bin, and then fell to the floor. I was so scared I pulled the covers over my head. I let some time pass hoping whatever it was, was gone. However, later (maybe 30 minutes later) something else fell and hit the floor. To this day, I have no idea what was going on in my room.”
