THE LITTLE GIRL WHO WASN’T (LadySparrow)

This story happened to LadySparrow while she living in a house when she was 11 to 16 years old. The young girl constantly experienced some weird stuffy, including hearing voices and footsteps and doors suddenly opening and shutting. What made her stay in that much worse was that she was usually alone since her parents were always at work.

Then, there was this thing with the little girl in the bathroom. LadySparrow always saw a little blond girl wearing a rose-colored dress whenever she walked past her bathroom door. The girl merely stood there just like someone from the past. To prevent her from seeing the apparition, LadySparrow closed the door to the bathroom. However, as soon as she opened the door, the girl was still there and would only disappear when the LadySparrow had already gotten past her. The girl scared LadySparrow but she could not help but to feel some sympathy for the ghost, as it seemed that she would just be trapped in there for eternity.

After a few years, LadySparrow felt that the ghost was not just an apparition. She felt that something else was hovering in their house and it was not the ghost of a little girl. Apparently, LadySparrow was almost running out of her wits.

Then, when LadySparrow was 14, she invited a friend to stay in their house for a week. To avoid driving out the guest, she omitted telling her friend anything about the strange things that were happening in their home. However, when her friend got back from using the bathroom, she basically told LadySparrow about the girl and the bathroom and practically reaffirming that she was a ghost. LadySparrow was quite relieved but she was also terrified. Meanwhile, that particular friend did not use that bathroom the whole week that she stayed in the house. On the other hand, LadySparrow had started avoiding it though her parents would not believe the ghost story.

Eventually, to her relief, LadySparrow and her family moved out. Then, after a few years, she had to go back to the house to retrieve some things that her parents did not manage to sell. Along with a friend, LadySparrow arrived at the house and she could tell that her friend was not at ease with the place. Along the driveway, she noticed her friend turned pale, and when she asked him about it, her friend assured her that he was okay. However, when he had to use the bathroom, he ran back out right away, claiming about seeing the girl in red dress. Then, that friend told her that the girl in the bathroom was not happy that LadySparrow left and said that she was supposed to remain in the house. LadySparrow and her friend then grabbed everything that they could and left the house as fast as they could.

DinosaurDanceParty once worked in as a cocktail server at a strip club. After having started working at the place for about six weeks, she experienced suffocation, panic attacks, and terrible migraines during unexpected moments. DinosaurDanceParty thought that it was just the stress brought on by work that was taking a toll on her since she never experienced suffering from anything as such previously.

Basically, the strip club was just filled with a lot of things, with all the tables and speakers lying around, the crowded dressing room, and the back storage room behind the stage. In the storage room behind the stage, there was an area filled with some dressers and mirrors and an old couch for the dancers who might want to use the dressing room for extra space or to take a nap in. During her time in the club, this particular dressing room gave DinosaurDanceParty the made her suffocation and panic worse, but she could think of any reason why such things happened to her in there.

Since her work lasted until 4 am and she did not have car and could not use public transportation, DinosaurDanceParty would usually just wait for another dancer to finish up so that she could be dropped off to her place. While waiting, she usually cleaned up a bit, but she also spent some time studying at the back room since she was still at grad school at that time. When studying at the back room, she would sometimes panic, and she would end up sitting up at the bar or the dancer’s dressing room.

It was almost Halloween that time so DinosaurDanceParty thought that her negative feelings were just caused by watching too much scary movies. However, her co-worker also told her about the creepiness of the back room.

Then one night, as she was carrying a box of glasses into the back room, DinosaurDanceParty heard a terrifying and screeching noise that sounded a lot like that is heard from horror movies. Freaked out and horrified, DinosaurDanceParty went out running. The bartender also heard the noise but not as intense. The bartender also thought that the noise was just caused by some technical glitch in the sound system. DinosaurDanceParty heard the noise several more times while she continued her work at the club.

Sometimes, DinosaurDanceParty would walk in and the light in the back room would flicker off and was replaced a red glow. DinosaurDanceParty was so scared that she ran out and told bartender. However, when they checked the lights, the bulbs were already dead. As time went by, DinosaurDanceParty ceased asking for the bartender’s help every time something weird happened to her because she did not want other people that she already going nuts.

Then, one time, as she was cleaning the hall between the dancers’ room and the back room, DinosaurDanceParty looked at the mirror in the back room and saw two legs in black ripped tights floating and swaying back and forth. The girl screamed and ran as fast as she could to the bar, thinking that a dancer had hung herself. When they checked the backroom, there was nothing there. One of the dancers thought that maybe a dancer really killed herself there, and it was her ghost that DinosaurDanceParty saw.

Sometime before Halloween, DinosaurDanceParty went to work wearing her normally all-black attire but with a painted skull painted on her face. That night, she asked to leave early. When she checked her makeup on the mirror in the dancer’s room, DinosaurDanceParty was surprised when she found out that she passed out in the back room, and she was found unconscious with all the makeup smeared on her face. Apparently, she had been gone for almost an hour, until she was found. She quit her job the next day.

One time, when he was 7, SorciaMcNasty, his brother, mother, and grandmother, stayed with their grandmother whose house was located on an isolated country road in NC. The house was situated near the train tracks and the nearest neighbor was not within the screaming distance.

Then, one early morning, as their family were having breakfast, they heard a vehicle pulling up outside. They checked it out and saw a strange truck part on the front yard. The weird thing was no one was behind the wheel though the engine of the truck was idling.

SorciaMcNasty’s mother asked their grandmother if she knew whose car it was but old woman said no and thought that maybe her cousin had called for some hired help, and the owner of the truck went to the wrong farm. However, when their grandmother tried contacting her cousin, the phone went dead.

Then, they all heard a loud banging on the front door. Their grandmother gathered the family in the living room while she checked out who was banging the door with a knife on her hand. However, no one was there.

The family felt relief but the, all the doors of the house started banging. And the whole family could literally see some of the doors vibrating because of the banging. Out of sheer terror and fear, their mother ran to the window. She cried with relief when she saw that their cousin had arrived.

The cousin checked out the truck with a shotgun in his hand. Then, he went pale and just started running toward the house.

When their grandmother saw the man running, she shouted for all of them to get down. Then, the cousin rushed past inside, the banging started again, and the cousin fired the gun once. At that moment, the truck came to life, whereas the banging finally ceased. The cousin went out again toward the truck, with his gun aimed at the vehicle. All the while, the family was behind him. Then, the truck just pulled out and raced out of the yard. The cousin shot at the rushing vehicle but it just continued running at full speed.

No one was driving the car when it went away.

The family called the police but their cousin had to go to his first because the phone line of the house was cut. The cousin said that the car had no plates and it was filled with a lot of weird restraints, like handcuffs, c-clamps, and nylon straps. He also claimed to have smelled blood on the truck.

The cousin also claimed to have seen something inside the house that was why he ran inside and fired his gun. However, he hit nothing and the truck just raced out of the front yard afterward.

Until now, one can explained what had happened, even the police could not figure out anything that could tell how all the doors on the house just went on banging.
