I thought it would be cool if some of us could get together and write an awesome haunted house story! Add whatever you like and make it anything you
want! I have started with just a few paragraphs and will add more after some of you have added your own flair to the story!!
It was the house of my dreams. A large two story house that sat back off the road in a grove of oak trees. What I loved mainly was the wrap around
porch and the 2 sets of large bay windows. I had admired the home from an early age, dreamed of living there, and today my dream was coming true.
As I stood unpacking boxes, I watched happily out the window as my children played. They were chasing a butterfly around the yard, laughing
gleefully with every step. The baby was sleeping in the cradle next to me. I was startled when my husband walked in yelling at me to get the kids out
of the room upstairs and make them go outside if they were going to act like wild indians. "The kids are outside honey," I said. "Hell no they
ain't they are up there tearing the damned house down, can't you hear them?" I walked over to the window and pointed to the children, all still
outside playing. "See, there they are, and besides I don't hear anything". He walked over to the window and counted...there they were, all three
kids...outside! "I'm telling you that they were upstairs! How long have they been out there"? "Over an hour! Are you okay?" I asked. "Yeah,
I'll go look up there, maybe a racoon or some squirrels got in". My husband wasn't normally one to be prone to exaggeration, but I knew that he was
worn out with the move and I didn't really think anything else about it.
I continued unpacking boxes, forgetting the incident. Suddenly, all three of the children ran into the house screaming that there was old man
upstairs in one of the bedrooms, they saw him looking out the window at them. "Shhh, one at a time please, and lower your voices, you'll wake the
baby!" Jonathan spoke up and repeated what they had just said...there was an old man with white hair staring at them from the bedroom window
upstairs. "That can't be, I reassured them, your daddy is up there and it was probably him that you saw, maybe the sun was shining on the glass and
you were all just confused". "No way momma, it wasn't daddy! This man looked mean, like he wanted to hurt us!!", said Jonathan.
