A new submission from a reader who has rubbed shoulders with the paranormal. Have you ever experienced anything like this?
There is a building near where I live that has been qualified as one of the most haunted places in the world. I always find it fun to walk around it, peer through the fences and get a closer look at where the dark side is supposed to reside. So far I’ve never seen anything out of place, supernatural or just plain weird. It’s an old place that locals like to tell stories about.
As I was entertaining a friend from out of town, I was showing her around and thought it would be fun to take them by the old house. I didn’t give any background. It’s only a few blocks off the main route on the way to see other things around town. Standing out front of the place, she turns to me and says, “We need to leave.” That was a little puzzling… but I simply assumed she wasn’t feeling well.
Later that evening, she asked what the place was that I took her to see. I explained it was just an old, abandoned house that folks make up stories about.
“It’s not abandoned,” she replied in a tone both factual and eerie.
“What did you see?” I asked.
She said the old windows were filled with faces, literally packed. She said they looked miserable and angry.
“The place has been empty for years,” I assured her.
“I know what I saw. And don’t ever do something like that to me again.”
I still haven’t seen anything there.
