Reader Submission: The Gardener

“About five years ago, I purchased two cottages adjacent to each other in one garden. They’re in a small hamlet called ‘Les Granges’ located on the outskirts of a rural village called St. Dizier Leyrenne in the Limousin region of central France. My main intention was to develop the properties for holiday lettings.

I began to renovate the houses, and it was during this time whilst installing a new window, I caught a glimpse of an elderly man in overalls and a straw hat.

Intrigued by his presence and his unknown identity, I proceeded downstairs through the cottage and exited, into the garden, and to my amazement he had curiously disappeared. I patrolled around the perimeter of my garden, but not a soul was to be seen.

Reader Submission: One Last Goodbye

creepy phone

“My husband passed away in June 2013. We had separated six months previously. On the day I was informed of his death, I was in my garden with a workman. I was shocked and extremely upset and was concerned about my children receiving the news.

The workman was asked to stay with me whilst someone went to collect my daughter from work. As I was crying, my phone started to ring. It was in my back pocket, and I was too upset to answer, but it would not stop ringing. I then thought it might be the police as they had found my husband’s body. However, my phone showed my husband as the caller, which upset me even more.

Reader Submission: The Haunted Doll

“I bought a haunted doll from eBay not too long ago. I got the idea after researching haunted items on the Internet and coming across the topic of haunted dolls.

I have always loved dolls, porcelain dolls in particular. I looked on eBay and found one I liked that was in my price range. The ad said she was a schoolteacher that was murdered, but that she still had a very sweet disposition . I felt relatively sorry for her, so I emailed the seller asking if this doll was a positive energy. The seller assured me that she was.

Reader Submission: The Footsteps

shadow person

“I live with my father and two nights ago I dropped him off at the airport as he was spending a month in Florida. I fell asleep at 3:30 am, very exhausted, but was ‘jarred’ awake at exactly 5:00 in the morning. I could not understand why I was awake, since I knew I was exhausted, but then I heard it: footsteps coming up my stairs. The sound was as clear as a bell.

The logical part of my mind was trying to make sense of it. I wondered if perhaps my father had returned from Florida, but I knew he would have called. The footsteps moved into the hallway and crept closer to my bedroom. As the steps drew closer and closer, I watched the handle on my bedroom door, just waiting to see it turn. I then heard whatever it was take two steps into my father’s bedroom, then nothing. I waited five minutes and then went out to investigate.

In the back of my mind, I knew I wasn’t going to find a person . Still, I opened my door and peeked into dad’s room. I didn’t see anyone. Frightened, I returned to my room, switched on the lights, and left them on for the remainder of the morning. Since that night, I’ve been awakened a few times, but I have not heard the footsteps again. I must say, nothing is more frightening than hearing footsteps coming right up to your door.”
