eerie moon
Too scared to look
Neil Horner

The story I am about to tell you is true.

About five years ago my wife Mandy and I were renting a farm cottage close to York, we had encountered a few odd things in the house such as a voice on the stairs late one night but nothing that put us at unease.

The house where Neil lived
The house where Neil and his wife experienced the ghost

Then in the very early hours of one cold dark night I woke for no reason, I felt a presence in the room with us I felt that whatever it was was over at the far side of the room near the small window.

Being a complete chicken I kept my eyes tightly shut and pulled the covers further up my head, after a few minutes I drifted back off to sleep.

The next day I thought nothing of my strange feeling of the night before until my wife and I were sat eating our breakfast. " Last night the strangest thing happened " she said.

Mandy then continued to tell me how she woke in the middle of the night and saw a man dressed in old fashioned clothes stood looking out of our small bedroom window.

I asked how come she had not screamed or at least woken me, " Because I felt no threat or feeling he meant us harm " she said. She just drifted back off to sleep.

I could not believe she had seen the presence that I had felt but I was too scared to look. This is a thing we still often talk about and cannot explain.

We lived in the house a couple more years after this had happened and never saw or felt anything else, and were very happy there.
