from the Well
by Paul G.
I am 33 years old and live in South Australia. I was born in England in the New Forest (Wicca country) on the 15th day of July, 1969. I had a baby sister who was born on the 10th of July, 1968, who died of heart problems on the 15th of July, 1968. I was born exactly one year later to the minute of her death and also had minor heart problems. I obviously never met her, but can tell you what she looked like, what she wore when she was buried and where her grave is, although I have never been there. I dream of her a lot.
I lived in a very old house in England (called The Rest) in Dibden Purlieu. A man had fallen down a well in the back yard many years before and had died. As a five year old, I got out of my bed and went down the stairs for a drink. A man with a terrifying look on his face (demonic) chased me back up the stairs. My parents told me the next day that the house was haunted by this man. After this I also kept seeing an older woman with black hair, tied in a bun wearing a black uniform with a white apron. I felt protected when she was around. I also found out that she haunted the house and used to live there. The Rest used to be owned by two sisters who died there. I have an old photo of the two sisters standing outside of the house when they owned it, and one of them is the woman I used to see.
have a paranormal tale to tell?
