A chilling true experience with the Unseen.

I had always thought of myself as a realist, who believed in concrete facts and look upon ghosts etc with a sneer. However, all this changed one night in my apartment.

My girlfriend Bridget and I were sitting in the living room having a chat by the fireplace when suddenly she stiffened and cried out,shock and alarm in her voice.

"Michael,who is that man staring at us,I thought we were alone."

"Where?"I asked a bit surprised.

"He just walked into the bedroom ,he was looking at us with a scowl on his face, I don’t think he likes me very much."

"Aw come on,Bridget " I said with a sneer,"not again, with one of your sightings.

She was always "seeing things" which I thought was one of her quirks.

"No,No,Michael,she cried alarmed," he's standing right there staring at us."

She pointed at a bedroom .

I looked but saw nothing."Yeah, right"

"Okay," I said finally trying to humour her, "Can you describe him ?."

She did and I was shock to say the least 

Intrigued, I  got up quickly and went into the bedroom . (I have to admit there was a heaviness in the room as I entered.) However, I took out an old family photo album from a chest of drawers and returned to the living room still skeptical..

Tears were now in her eyes.

Damn,I thought, she wasn't kidding this time, I told myself after seeing the tears.

"Don’t cry, honey," I said handing her the album "Now take a look and see if you can identify him"

After flipping through the plastic pages a few times, she finally stopped and pointed to a certain photograph .

"That’s him."she said firmly."He's the person I just saw."

I looked and gasped. My scalp prickled . A tingling, creepy sensation washed over me.

I couldn’t believe it!.

"Are you sure?" I asked, still in doubt.

"Yes, it’s him alright,", she replied sniffing and turning away her face.

I was flabbergasted to say the least, for she had seen  my grandfather who had died six months before I met her.

" a firm believer..." And well should we all be. For there is a time a space that spirits remain with us, if only we open our minds.
Thanks for sharing this with us Michael.

Good story, just add more depth on your characters side. For example, describe more of how you feel then later have your character act more calmly because he knows it was the grandfather.

I think I would been more startled if some stranger was seen in my apartment.You seemed to stay unusually calm.

Good sighting for her.
