Ghost in the House



We had been the only ones in the house, and our friends left the door cracked open because everything else was locked and their keys were inside. We were all confused because we all knew the door was cracked open 10 minutes before.

We were trying to get the door open when things started to get scary. As we were trying to pull the sliding door open, we saw a man walk into the kitchen, a man none of us knew. The kitchen light was off, and the living room lights were on, so we couldn't clearly make out what he looked like. We were all stunned and frozen by the sight of this unknown man.

The girls screamed and backed away from the door, and my friend and I were yelling at the man to leave the house. All this man did was look at us with what we could see was a blank stare. He was a very tall man with long hair. He had his hands balled up in fists while standing very aggressively toward us.

At this point, we had everything riding against us. Our keys and cell phones were all inside, so we couldn't call the police. Then he suddenly stepped closer to us, almost to the point where his face was touching the glass. He had this smile on his face that I will never forget. It was a sadistic smile, like this man knew we were helpless.

We told the girls to run back toward where the fire was because at this point my girlfriend was about to cry. The terrifying thing that I noticed was that while this man was up close to the glass, his breath wasn't showing up on the glass. This sent chills in my back.


After about five minutes of us staring back at each other, and my friend and I yelling at this man to leave, we decided to break in and get him out. We started to pull harder on the door and the man suddenly backed away. His eyes opened very wide, like he was afraid. He quickly turned around and walked into the living room. Right before he left our field of vision, he vanished.

I swear up and down that this man seemed as real as any of us there. I felt very sick and perplexed. We eventually got the door open and searched the whole house, but no one was there. We were going to call the police, but we all had a feeling that the police could not help in this situation.

To this day, my girlfriend and I have never been back at that house. Our friends have experienced other things after this, but nothing to this extent. Whatever is in that house, I don't think it knows where it is. I will never get this man's smile out of my memory. I hesitate to believe in these types of things, but after this incident, I can't deny that there are other things out there that are not explainable.
