at Grandpa's House
by Mike W.
One New Year's Eve, my parents went to a party and dropped my younger brother and me off at my grandfather's house to spend the night. After watching Dick Clark count down the seconds and watching the big ball drop, we both fell asleep on the floor. A couple of hours later, I felt a chill in the air and woke up. I looked in the doorway of the room and saw someone standing there. This person did not look anything like my grandfather. I passed out after a few seconds and in the morning, I asked if my grandpa woke up in the middle of the night. He told me he hadn't. A few years later, my family went to visit my grandfather, but he wasn't home. However, my mother heard the sound of someone walking up the stairs and slamming the upstairs bedroom door. My father called the police, but after a thorough search of the house, no one was found. One of the neighbors came over to see what was going one and after my parents explained the situation he said, "Oh, it must have been the ghost!" It seems that their had been a rumor about my grandfathers house being haunted for decades! It was then that I told my parents about what I had seen on that night.
