Here’s my story:

Phantom Girlfriend

Years ago I was sleeping over a girlfriend’s house. She was in one room and I was in another. In the middle of the night I woke up and saw her standing over me (my skin is crawling as I write this). I wasn’t really sure it was her because the room was very dark and all I could see was the outline of a figure that resembled her.

CreepyI said her name and there was no response. I called her name again. Still no response, but there was definitely someone or some-thing standing next to my bed. I turned on the light as quickly as I could and no one was there.

I thought I could have been dreaming, so I turned out the light and went back to sleep. An hour later I woke up and there it was again. I tried calling her name and again got no response. At this point I was really scared. I turned on the light and left it on the rest of the night.

The next morning I told my ghastly tale at the breakfast table and guess what? I wasn’t the only one to have seen a ghost in that haunted Long Island house.

Needless to say, I never slept there again.
