The Friendly Ghost

This is a story that many may not believe. Many laugh at my experiences. Many think I’m lying. But this is a true story. A real experience. It’s a part of my life. And if you don’t believe it, I won’t make you. Until it happens to you.

It was a gloomy and dull summer day. I was simply enjoying my vacation with my friends. They were hanging out at my place. We were just bored and after some time, they left. After some time, I heard a loud crashing which came from my closet. I ran to my closet, which was now lying open and all my clothes and hangers had fallen to the floor.

I was shocked and started keeping the clothes back. I soon forgot about this incident and started surfing the web and at the same time, chatting on snapchat with my brother. Such an incident never took place for a long time, but what can we predict about an entity roaming your house? Soon after, my Dad and Mom started complaining about a thing that kept grabbing their legs at night. I remembered the closet and without thinking, just ran towards it. I saw a note on the mirror.

“You forgot me, but I will never forget, neither leave you.”

I tore the note when my sister came in my closet and told me that the reflection in the mirror of her closet was not hers. I ran to her closet to check and she was telling the truth. Instead of my face, I saw a distorted image of a woman in a white bride gown and bright red lipstick. She looked like a depressed being and just stared into my eyes. I was so entraptured that I did not notice her vanishing. Since then, the incidents became worse. Our fine dinner sets were shattered when we were not at home. My Gucci dress was torn and tattered. I found a note again.

“I just wanna play. Please play with me.”

I wondered what she considered playing. I told my brother about this and he suggested checking out an Ouija board. I agreed and found out that the lady’s name was Chlóe and she was killed in the day of her marriage. I realised that our house was built on top of a church that was destroyed during an atomic bomb test gone wrong. She died 57 years ago and till present, haunted anyone who built a home on that land. Then I heard a piercing shriek from the closet. I ran there and saw a figure sitting on the couch. It said,”Let’s play,” and vanished.
