Do you believe in GHOSTS?

I don't actually believe in such thing but when it happened to me, I did!! I was a freshman college student that time and I had rented a room near school. My room was in the fourth floor and heard some ghost stories about the old lady who used to appear in the stairway at the second floor. I didn't mind the story since I didn't even believe that ghost exists. But one night, it was around 11pm when I couldn't sleep. I felt thirsty that's why I got off from my bed. I went to the fridge and drank a glass of water but it seemed that it didn't quench my thirst. I felt so thirsty that my throat was so dry. That's why I decided to get a can of soda at the vendo machine which is located at the first floor. I was at the stairway when suddenly, the air got cooler. I looked at the windows because i was wondering the air must be coming from outside but they were closed. I was the only person awake that time and the stairway was dark and it was very silent. When I reached the second floor stairway, I had a feeling that someone was following me. I didn't mind it at first because I knew everyone was sleeping by that very hour and I was so sure no one would dare to go outside of their rooms. I heard some murmurings. It was like someone was talking in a very soft voice behind me. I haven't reach the last step of the stairway when the voice got clearer and louder. It seemed like the voice was just behind my ears. I stopped from walking and looked over my shoulder and there- an old lady was looking at me! we were just like half-foot away from each other. I can still remember her face, she had a long white hair, wrinkled face, eyes wide open staring at me! I didn't know what to do so I ran towards the ground floor and knocked on the first door I saw. Fortunately, the tenant of the room was my classmate in Math. I told him what happened and he let me stayed for the night. I moved out of the apartment the very next day! Do you have any experiences like this? Share your ghosts stories...

check this ghost story 66660000 The Man On The Bench I hope you enjoy it. This happened few years ago in my home town, Driffield, and I remember it was on Valentine's day. Me and my friend, Kerstie, were walking to her house one night. I forget what we were doing, but on the way to her house we had to pass this memorial garden. It has a few flowers, and a bench that faces a monument from the war, it's quite a nice place with a small river. There is a path that runs behind the bench, and this was the path we had chosen that day. It wasn't quite dark and I remember it was around 6pm because there is a church not far from the garden, and the bells struck just before we walked by. We were both quite happily talking away until we came close to the bench. Then we both went silent, and turned to face the bench. It was very strange because we both did this at the exact same time, in mid sentence, and just stared for what seemed like ages. There was a man sat on the bench with his back to us. He seemed to be wearing a rather large coat, with a biggish collar, it was a greenish color, and he had a large bag next to him. I originally thought the bag was a small child huddled on the bench until I realized how large it was. After what seemed like ages, but was most likely a few seconds, we both realized we were staring but we didn't seem to understand why. Then, at the exact same time, we both realized the guy had no visible head (I know it sounds lame but honestly it is true). Kerstie started to scream. She ran across the road and waited for me on the other side. I didn't quite know how to react and just continued to stare in shock. The guy didn't seem phased by Kerstie screaming, and this creeped me out a little. I thought maybe he was leaning forward, and his head just wasn't visible, so I slowly walked round the side of the bench, to see a front view. The whole time, he didn't move an inch. As I got closer, I saw that he wasn't hunched forward... He really didn't have a head... Just a gaping collar with blackness. Yet he had hands, and feet and everything else. He just sat there with his hands on his knees. At this point, fear got the better of me and I ran after Kerstie. As I caught up with her I paused and looked back... The guy was moving his arms... We then ran all the way to her house. When we actually got home, it was the first time we spoke since we went silent and she said to me "You did see that didn't you?" We then talked about the whole experience, and we had both witnessed the same thing... A headless man in green, sat with a bag on a bench. She also said that she thought the bag was a child too... I thought that was kind of odd. We thought maybe it was a guy from the war waiting for his lover, or grieving for a friend lost in the war, but I doubt we will ever know. I know it seems unlikely but this really did happen, and if it wasn't for the fact that Kerstie saw it too, I'd wonder if I really did see it. I have seen other things but this is by far the scariest.

Maybe they wants to send a message, a premonition, or they want to pove, too encountered being followed by ghost, and thats damn freaky! i dont want to happen that again.. but just dont forget God, He will guide you always! and a tip: when you dont know what to do and you are very scared, or during nightmare, just pray one our father, hail mary, and glory be.. you'll feel much better and youll e protected through the night!
