We are in the month of Halloween festivity and the stories with ghosts are already beginning to scare people passionate with paranormal. Halloween Story is one activity that many people are doing during Halloween night.
For many people, the holidays are some of the best times of the year. They often mean a chance to take a little time off work, gather the family together, decorate, and basically just have fun. Having fun and happy times makes the day to day drudgery off every day that much more bearable.
Of course, some people dive into the holidays a little harder than others. And everyone has their own personal favourite, some like Christmas with the lights and the gifts, others Easter with cuddly bunnies and chocolate eggs, and then there is Halloween, with scary costumes and more candy than you know what to do with. And for those who dive wholeheartedly into the holidays, accessories are just a part of the celebration.
But there are some people, who use Halloween as an opportunity to remind them of the horror stories that are running steadily on the Internet. Other people use Halloween as an opportunity to go to parties dressed up in all kinds of scary costumes. Some other people prefer to organise horror movie nights. I know some friends of mine that they prefer to organise walks for Halloween in the cemetery or to organise trips to visit empty and hailed places.
Halloween occupies an important place in the hearts of many people, especially the Americans and not even this pandemic may not break the holiday. Even so, many of the usual Halloween events all over the world have been cancelled that is why for this year I have decided to write a creepy story for this Halloween to keep the celebration alive as we are not allowed to go to any events at the moment.
The Hunting Ghost: The Beginning
One night while I was travelling with my friends in England, I had to stay alone in the cottage as my friends have gone to some of their friends to celebrate their anniversary. After my friends left, I have locked the door and all the windows leaving one light on while on my own in my room started to watch some movie.
For about 1 hour I have enjoyed my movie. Then, suddenly the TV went off. I have looked to see if the electricity went off too, but everything else was working. I have tried to turn on the TV again, but I couldn’t. I thought that the Tv has broken. So, I have decided to read a book for a while and maybe I will fall asleep.
Suddenly there was a knocking in my window which was not possible as my room was situated at the first floor so I thought it just my imagination and I did not pay attention to it, continuing to read.
The thumping persisted, becoming louder and louder and then the window opened with a horrifying sound. A bit frightened, but at the same time trying to use my logic and saying to my self that it might be stormy outside I went to close the window and, there she was… A strange face was in the window. The face was white and the eyes were like the devil’s eyes. She started to laugh diabolically, looking straight into my frightened and troubled eyes. I did not know what to do. Should I scream? Should I run? I closed the window and I run under the bed.
My brain was working in a full capacity, looking for an explanation. This can’t happen, it is not possible. I keep hearing the laugh. I screamed at that face and I told her to leave me alone. ” Just go “
The face from the window stoped the laughs and with a strange voice she told me “Why? I will not go . It is going to be so fun” and then she started again the thumping and with her diabolically laugh. I started thinking that this is just a dream, that it is not true. Probably I fell asleep while I was reading. The thumping stopped and for a second I heard only the laugh. Then a silence like the silence in the grave was set in the room.
” Hmmm” it was just a dream. That is silly. I don’t believe in ghosts.
The Hunting Ghost: She Is Coming In
This silence did not last long. Not sure if the laughing it is in my head or she is here again. Then, I heard some footsteps. Maybe there is somebody on the next cottage, maybe I should start to scream and they will hear me. But the sound of the footsteps is not like the normal ones. What if is that face? Who is she? Why is she at my room window? This is just a normal cottage, I haven’t read anything on the internet, not weird stories about a ghost or being a haunted place.
The footsteps are coming closer and my heart started to bit faster. I think it is somebody in my room. The footsteps are too close to be on the hallway. From the bed, I could see somebody walking towards my room. I could see only a silhouette moving towards me, but not walking, more like flying. It is the face. She is in my room. She is having a very long and black hair, with black and devilish eyes and the smile, OMG, that is a horrifying smile.
She approached my bed and her face is coming down to me and she started to laugh again. I was so frightened, I felt like I was going to die. I wanted to scream for help, but the sounds froze in my throat. Suddenly I felt a cold hand on my right foot.
” This is real, I can feel that cold hand on my foot…I am not dreaming”
After my realisation, I started to think about how to escape. I was afraid to have a closer look, but I wanted to see who is it. In the last moment of my thoughts, I look up and I could see the face…full of blood which makes her more horrifying. With my last force of courage, I pushed her with my left foot and I have managed to get away from her. I run away from my bed towards the room’s door hearing the diabolical laughing.
” You can not run from me” …
When I have reached the door, I could feel that the ghost was next to me, I could feel her breath which was a really bad smell, like a dead person. She grabbed me from behind and she told me :
”Run”, she screamed at me with a very manly voice.
” Run? ” I was thinking of disappearing. Then she told me again:
” it is not safe for you here” whispering with a calm and normal voice
” you have less than a minute until she will come for you,” she said again with a calm voice.
To run? Where? Is she playing with my brain?
She released me and I run into the kitchen. I looked for something to protect my self. On the table, I have found a knife. The ghost was approaching me so I threw the knife toward her. The knife passed through the ghost and stopped in the door.
” I told you to run…”
The door opened suddenly and my friends came home from their party. I looked after the ghost but she vanished. I was so pale, that my friends started to get worried and asked me what happened to me. I was not sure if I should tell them or not, I was not sure if they will believe me, so I told them that I got sick from the food I had. I went into my room, but I couldn’t sleep as I kept thinking that this is not real and everything is a dream.
The Hunting Ghost: The Ghost Sad Story
When I woke up the next day, I was so tired. I did not want to go out, but at the same time, I did not want to stay in the cottage by my self. So, I decided to go out to have a strong coffee, and maybe I could ask someone if there is a story about the cottage.
I went to the closest pub to have my breakfast and coffee. My friends wanted to come with me as they were still worried about me. While I was ordering, I asked if they know anything about the cottage, or if there are some strange stories about it.
” There is a strange story about that cottage, ” somebody in the back table says
” What do you mean strange? I asked him
The man that was sitting at the back table was in his 70th. He was alone with a glass of beer in front of him. He looked sad.
“Well, there is a story about a girl that was hunted by some men. The men were staying at the cottage One of the men was the owner of the cottage. That happened a very long time ago. I was very young at the time. The girl was my friend. One day she disappeared and after a few months, the police found her in the woods, not far from the cottage. “
The man stopped for a moment, having a bit of the beer and then he continued by saying:
” When she was found, she looked as she was killed with arrows, like those used by the hunters. “
” Did the police found the killers?” I asked him
” No, and even if they know who it was, they were rich people and I suppose they paid the police or somebody to hide the truth. “
‘Do you know if the cottage is hunted by a ghost?” I asked him again
” Some people are saying that sometimes, around Halloween time, there is a girl around the cottage. Nothing else to say, nobody knows who that girl is or even if it true. People around here do not believe in ghosts.”
“Why at the Halloween time? “
“Well, that is when it all happened…”
The man finished his beer, and then he walked by me and told me:
“If you saw anything around the cottage, be careful. Sometimes, the dead people are coming back for revenge. “
Revenge? But why me? I did not do anything to her. That is a mistake.
I turned back to my friend’s table. They were laughing about the man’s story. Definitely, it is just a story and what happened last night was just a terrible bad dream. We visited the area for the rest of the day. I loved the surrounding areas. The ghost did not come in my dreams for 3 days. We still had another 3 days to stay at the cottage.
On the 3rd day, something strange happened while I was having a shower. I heard something, like writing on the glass. I stopped the water so I can hear better, but the writing stopped. Thinking it was in my imagination, I continued with the shower. I reached my hand for the towel and then there it was. On the mirror was written a word ” run”
Not again. I am not sleeping. Am I?
I need to get out of my room. I will go to stay at my friend’s room.
I got dressed really quickly and went out. The ghost is back and I don’t want to stay alone in the cottage and my friends are out. Maybe I should tell somebody about the visits. Maybe they will know what to do. that night I fell asleep in one of my friend’s room. Next day I have decided to go again to the pub and to find some answers. I went to the pub looking for the old men who told me about the strange story. I asked the bartender about him, and he said that Frank will come later on, in about 2 hours.
I have to meet my friends to do some shopping, but will not take long so I will be able to come back to the pub to talk to Frank. I couldn’t enjoy shopping so I told my friends that we will see each other at the cottage. I went for a long walk by the canal to relax my nerves. I turn around and took the road to the pub. There was Frank in his corner.
“Could I ask you a few more questions about the story you told me?”
” Sure, what do you need to know?
‘ Are you sure that the story you told me is not true? I mean, how do you know it is just a story?
” Well, why are you so interested in the story? What happened to you? Did you saw her?
” It may sound a bit silly, but I think she came to my room a few nights ago, and I could see her and actually I felt her hand on my right foot. So, was I dreaming or it was all real, I don’t know. But last night while I was having a shower, she wrote on the mirror the word “run”. Actually, when she visited me all she did was to laugh and to scream at me “run, she will come after you”. I don’t know what to do or to believe. “
” This is sounding a bit silly, but not that silly. Actually, the cottage was put on for booking because the owner has died and his son did not want to live there. Also, after my friend disappearance, there were some rumours that some people had a very bad experience in the cottage. No one knows if all the people’s experience were true or not. But now, from what you have told me, I am wondering if is my friend the ghost.”
“Have you seen her face?”
“Yes, she has very long black hair, and her face is with blood, so can’t tell you her looks. And, also the eyes don’t seem like human eyes. “
” She did have very long black hair…” He told me and then he stopped talking.
” Are you ok Frank?”
He looked at me with very sad eyes… ” yes, I am ok, just some memories of her came back to me. There is nothing I can tell you about her or what happened to her. Maybe, you need to leave. Because if she is violent to you, that means she is after her revenge. Why you? I don’t know. Maybe you need to ask her or just do some research about the story. I am old, I do not remember everything from that time.”
” Thank you, Frank.”
The Hunting Ghost: She Is Back And Mad
I did not know what to do. I don’t want to let that story destroy my holiday. I should ask Ana to let me share her room, so I can finish my holiday. I don’t want to leave, as I still have some places to visit. I took all my stuff from my room. There were some signs that she went through my things. So weird. She is a ghost, she is not able to touch things. Or maybe somebody else went through my things? But who? Definitely I have to leave my room, and not be alone.
” Thank you, Ana, for letting me stay with you. I know you may think that is silly and there is no ghost. I know what I have seen, and I do not feel comfortable being on my own.”
” No worries”.
Anna’s ensuite had a tiny living area that contained a small but comfortable sofa that I loved to get cosy into it. That night, Ana decided to let her bedroom door opened, so if anything happened to me she will be able to help me. I was also cautious and left a light opened. I think I fell asleep because I wake up during the night in a frizzing room. Suddenly, Ana’s door shut with a strong bang. But there is no sign of the ghost, only the cold temperature. I run to Ana’s room finding her frozen with fear. The ghost was in the corner of Ana’s room, laughing and screaming at me.
” I told you to run. Look what you made me do…”
” Leave me alone…what do you want from me?”
The ghost rose into the air and then entered into Ana possessing her. Ana started to change her face into something diabolical. She was not Ana anymore.
” What do you want from me? Let my friend alone…”
Her laughing was more diabolical than before and her voice was not human.
“What I want from you? Not from you…from your grandfather. He is one of my killers. And now….you have to pay for that”.
“Excuse me? I don’t even know him. Why should I pay for something I did not do?”
“Because of him and his friends, I lost my life”. Her voice becomes like thunder.
She looked scarier and I have run out of Ana’s room. I was hiding In the bathroom.
While I was hiding in the bathtub I felt something running on my shoulder. I looked upon the ceiling and there was Ana, dead. Her blood was all over me. I felt like punching the ghost in the face. I was furious that I have involved Ana in all this. She is dead because of me.
I run into the small living room where I slept trying to open the ensuite door which leads to the cottage hallway. I was trying to reach George’s room. But it was impossible. I started to scream, but he did not hear me. Why? Where is he?
While I was trying to open the door, I felt a sharp piece of something get into my shoulder. I screamed out of pain, then I turn around and she was really close to me.
With a frightened face I have tried again to scream, but she was pressing that sharp piece into my shoulder saying ” your grandfather could have saved me, but he has chosen just to watch and let others torture me and kill me. I was their pray. They hunted me all night. I was losing my mind. Now you have to pay for everything they did for me.”
“Please, let my friend go.”
” Too late, she is dead because of you”.
With my last powers, I tried to fight the ghost. I tried to punch her, but my fist went through her. She was laughing. I run in Ana’s room, but I knew at the same time that is not helping me. Another sharp piece entered my back shoulder.
” Is she hunting me? I have to get out of here”.
Really fast, I started to look for the cottage key. I am sure that Ana put it somewhere to be seen. With the corner of my eye, I could see the ghost coming really fast towards me. I need to move fast, as I am bleeding really bad. Everywhere is blood, mine and Ana. I was running around the room, and finally, I found the key. I rushed to the door, all I could hear was her laughing. I opened the door and I run out. It was already morning, no one was here like everybody had disappeared. Maybe it is better this way. I don’t want anybody else to be killed.
I am out in the woods and I am trying to look back to see what the ghost is doing. I started to be weak, because of all the blood lost. Already the sun is up, I looked back and the ghost is gone.
It seems that the ghost is gone when the sun is up. I am afraid to go to the cottage again, but I have to see what Ana is doing if she is really dead. Not sure what to do. I am trying to call somebody but realised that I have left the phone in the cottage. I am really weak. I need to go back to the cottage to find George.
I started to feel very tired, so I am looking for something to stop the bleeding. I have found some disinfectant and I put it on the wounds. And, I passed out.
When I wake up, I could see a silhouette. Thank God…
” Hi. What are you doing here ?”
” Sorry, I was having some wounds and I needed something to put on them. I will go to my room, but first, could I use your phone, George? By the way, what time it is?”
” It is 8 pm”.
” Aaaa a, what? 8 pm? O my God, where is Ana?
He was looking at me, and asked … “How much alcohol did you have last night?”
” I did not have any alcohol, I had a shitty night, I am tired and I want to go see Ana.”
” Ok…” And he was looking like he did not believe me.
First I went to my room, and everything was ok.
Then I went to Ana’s room, I was at the door and afraid to go in. With fear in my heart and scared of what I might find, I opened the door. Everything there was as normal as it was before everything happened. What is happening? It was everything in mind? It was actually a dream?
” Ana? Are you in?”
“Hey, hi” I heard Ana’s voice
“Where have you been all night?”
“Aaaa a, what?”
“Where have you been last night? We’ve been looking for you? We thought you may have been with somebody, you know what I mean…”
“Oh, God, no. I was downstairs in the supplies room. It seems I passed out while I was putting something on my wounds.”
” What wounds?”, asked Ana
“These wounds” and I showed her the wounds I have in my shoulders.
“But there are no wounds. What are you talking about?” asked Ana.
I looked at my shoulders and there was nothing, not a sign of any wound.
So, I started to believe that it was a terrible dream, and I was dream-walking and that’s how I ended up in the utility room. I felt tired and all I wanted was a shower. Tomorrow I will go home and all these bad dreams are over. I went to look out the windows and the sun was almost gone, there was only some reddish colour that soon faded and left the sky dark.
After the shower, I wanted to relax a little before I will go to meet my friends down at the pub. I think I will have first a cup of tea. I was sitting on my sofa when I realised that the time has just passed at 9 pm. I rush to get ready, and I was almost at the door when I realised that I forgot my phone. I went back to my room, when suddenly I felt a bit of cold, a weird cold. I looked at the window thinking maybe I left it open. The window was closed. I was too late to stay to see what it is, so I went out.
While I was locking the door a lady in black with her face covered by a black hood passed me. She said a short hello, without looking at me. I answered her with a hello and I was looking at my phone to see the time. At one moment I hear something behind me I looked back and the lady was standing. When I looked closer at her I saw the hood fall down and below her, I have recognised the face, the pale blood-filled face of the ghost and her devil eyes.
I was looking at her, not moving, not breathing.
Then she murmured: ” It is your last night. I told you to run…”
I was so scared that I could not move. When I saw that the ghost is getting closer to me, I began to run towards the woodland and immediately I felt the hand of the ghost scratching my back. I started to scream, I felt the warmest of blood running down and once I felt the blood on my legs I started to run faster. I started to feel really weak. I run as fast as I could and I hid behind a tree. I just needed a second to calm down.
I turned and I saw the ghost coming really slowly towards me. She started to have again her diabolical smile on her bloody face. I jumped and I started to run again when I realised that the ghost is alongside me and she was flying, leaving the wind behind her. She grabbed me by my ankle and she slammed me down and began to drag me through the woods until I reached a mound and let me down. I looked around me and there was no ghost, then I saw her sink into the ground and vanished. I just relaxed a bit massaging my ankle and feeling sorry for my self. My back was hurting. I closed my eyes for a second instantly knowing that it is a mistake.
All of the sudden, the ground beneath me shuddered and an ugly and bony hand grabbed one of my hand then she grabbed my other hand. Her hands clutched me more and more tightly until my blood come out of my arms screaming with pain. My scream sounded deep in the night and nobody was there to save me.
The Hunting Ghost: My End
For a moment I didn’t know what was going on, but slowly those hands were pulling me down into the ground and… there it is. The malefic laughing of the ghost. It was back. I felt how the ghost was dragging me down. Is this my end? Why do I have to pay for the sins of a man That I don’t even know? I am increasingly feeling the weight of the earth on my feet.
At that moment I saw my whole life in front of my eyes like a movie. I felt my legs are no longer able to move and I was almost stuck in the ground to the middle. The ghost then stopped, being really close to my face and murmuring
“I told you to run… I was trying to save you. Now it is too late for you.”
My heart was beginning to go astray and it was beating harder and harder. My breathing was difficult and I was crying. I could not understand why…I started to feel the pain in my legs. I started to pray which I haven’t done for a long time. The ghost started to pull me more and I felt that only the head is out of the ground. This is a terrible death. I saw the ghost standing up looking at me and laughing. I was dying slowly. My hands were in pain. She was still there looking at me but not pulling me down.
” Please, let me go. I haven’t done anything to you. I don’t know you and I don’t know the people who hurt you. Please.” I was in the last moment pleading for my life.
” It is too late.”
And she was disappearing into the ground laughing.
Then that was it. She pulled me with her force into the ground. I could not breathe. In the last moment of my life, I saw the ghost face, with very nice eyes, a very beautiful face and with the most beautiful smile.
” This is me before those men hunted me and killed me. I know that it is not your sin and you should not pay for what they have done to me. This is my revenge as I told them before I was dying that I will come after them and wipe out all that came from them. This is me coming after them. I still have 4 other to bring here with you.”
She left me there…
