Spooky Stories

Just in time for Halloween, I have quite a handful of creepy stories to tell that I myself has experienced. Some of it were experienced by my family and my cousins. You may believe it or not but these really happened in real life. Brace yourself and enjoy!

THE DOPPELGANGER// It’s a term for someone who imitates or is a double of a living person. Some say that if you see your own double, you will die. For some reason, my aunt saw my doppelganger in my own house. It was just a typical day when my aunt called me for breakfast but my mom said I already left for school like 10 minutes ago. “Really? I just saw her a second ago walking across her bedroom”. my aunt said. She said she was wearing the same exact uniform I was wearing but her hair wasn’t done. My other aunt saw her again on a different day saying she saw me walking up the stairs and she was calling my name but I just ignored her. She went upstairs to find that there’s no one there. I was at school. If that wasn’t me, then who was it?

THE LADY IN BLACK// My brother only goes home on weekends so most of the time his room is free. One Saturday night when he was sleeping, something woke him up and he saw a lady in black staring down at him telling him to go away. My brother was so tired so he just shrugged it off and went back to sleep. The next morning, my cousins found him sleeping on the floor of their room and my brother has no idea how he got there in the first place.

SLEEP PARALYSIS// My brother and I moved room upstairs. Some renters are occupying our old rooms now. This just happened weeks ago when a renter asked my aunt if there was anything unusual in my brother’s room. She said she woke up in the middle of the night, couldn’t wake up, couldn’t move but her mind was awake. It was the first time it happened to her. And guess what? She saw the lady in black too.

THE BOY ON THE ROOF// So many things happened in my cousin’s house back at the province since she was young. One day, someone saw a little boy at their rooftop and she thought it was Eman, my older cousin. She asked what he’s doing there but he just stared at her. She looked up again and he was gone. Eman said that he has never ever gone on the rooftop.

THE WINGED MONSTER// This also happened in my cousin’s house. It was around nearing the month of November when strange things happened again. After the boy on the roof incident, and some other unexplained things, my uncle always guard the house every night cos they thought that someone is out there to get my cousin. I know it’s crazy and unbelievable but it’s true. All of them went to sleep in the living room guarding my cousin. One night there was a ticking noise that gets louder to fainter. And they said that if the noise is getting fainter, that creature is closer to them. They heard a huge sound like something hit their roof with a great impact. Then they saw a shadow on the wall and guess what? It has wings and claws climbing down the wall. I forgot what happened next but it finally flew. They consulted an expert on these things and my aunt has to do some ritual every three years to prevent this from happening again.

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY// I get goosebumps as I’m typing this cos it happens in this house. I couldn’t see any ghosts or creatures but I can feel them or hear them. Last month, I always wake up at minutes before or after 3 am, sometimes it’s exactly 3 am for a week! I was always scared but I try to sleep again and get it off my mind. Other times I would hear noises in the kitchen like someone’s washing the dishes. I swear it wasn’t my mom. Who would wash dishes at 2-3 am? And sometimes I just get goosebumps and a cold feeling out of nowhere. It sends shivers down my spine but I always distract myself to keep me from getting scared.

Sorry if that creeps you out but have you experienced or saw something like this? I’m sure some of you did! Let me know in the comments! 🙂

Happy Halloween!

      It must be scary! When I hear or feel something, I just ignore them. I don’t think they could hurt us.

    It’s so scary. I’ve been through some paranormal activity too but thankfully I was never alone. I was staying at grands, back in their old cottage. When me and my sister were trying to sleep in a room connected to staircase, we heard someone walking up there. It was making creepy sounds like those made by anklets. I was totally freaked out!

    Gosh, this is so scary! I’ve never seen any ghost (thankfully) but I was in my aunt’s room one night, doing the late night reading and suddenly the bottle on the table next to me just fell down. I swear there was nothing that could make it move! I RAN AWAY FROM THERE! That was the spookiest thing that ever happened to me!
    PS: Doppleganger sounds terrible to me.

    Yikes, scary! I don’t want to hear those stories because I get nightmares 🙁 I hope all the Halloween thing-y will be replaced by joyous Christmas story. My apologies, but I’m so scared really!

    Eeeek I’m such a scaredy cat that I barely made it through the first scary story. Gonna share this with my husband, though. He loves getting creeped out.

    This is why right after the first and second of November, I immediately (let my thoughts) skip to December. I get easily spooked but alhough I get scared, I just often shrug it off ..which works!

    OM! I experienced sleep paralysis before. I woke up and I know that I’m awake, I can even see the ceiling but I can’t move. I tried to call for help, but I can’t speak… it lasted for 5 minutes or so
    I read stories similar to what happened to me, some are relating it to incubus/ succubus. It eventually stopped after new year and it really is creepy…
