Back in the early 90's, we rented a house from my then-boss. Before we moved in, the receptionist at work told us not to move in because bad things happened there. We thought she was a loony old lady and took the house anyway.

It was a nice place but, everyone who sat by the fireplace in the back room told us they got a chill and didn't like sitting there. The first night we lived there, out toilet flushed by itself but I thought it was just screwy plumbing. My stepson also complained over and over gain that he heard someone walking around his room at night. We lived there for about a year until we bought a house.

While it was vacant, my boss asked me if I would do a walk through with a priest who was going to bless the house before she rented it out again. She was too scared to do it because she also felt bad things in the 2 rooms I mentioned. I didn't tell the priest anything about where I felt uneasy and my boss says she didn't mention it ahead of time.


We started walking through, room by room and when we got to the back room, he told me that there was some "negative energy" in that area and it needed to be blessed...and he concentrated his blessing near the fireplace I was ready to run out the door but I kept going with him. When we got to my stepson's bedroom, he asked me "has anyone felt a presence in this area?" Up until then, I had been pretty skeptical about this kind of thing but I felt the hair on my neck stand up when he said that.
Char, i am waiting for the rest of this story. did anything happen while the Priest was blessing the house?

my uncle had his house blessed soon after they moved in, because one night while he and his wife were asleep they heard a voice calling my Uncles name. he got up went down stairs thinking it was a burglar but discovered there was no-one else in the house. the next morning he and his wife had a priest come over to bless the house. my Uncle apparently attracts ghosts.

Nothing really happened, he just confirmed that he felt something in both rooms we had "experiences" in. After he was done, I got the hell out of there and went back to work and told my boss what happened, which freaked her out of course. She rented it to some other people a few weeks later and apparently they had no problems because they ended up buying the house.

I did find out that a few people had died in the house in the early 1940's, natural deaths though, not murder or anything. And the original owners had a lot of parties in the back room where the fireplace was...maybe the spirits just wanted to party with us?

Yup. In 1977 it wasn't quite the garden spot of England it wanted to be. I haven't been there since. It may have improved somewhat.

Oooh....where was it??? I'm moving there in September.

We used to go to old Civil War sites in the middle of the night when I was in college. We trespassed sometimes and once we thought the police were driving down the road, so we jumped in the ditch. It turned out to be a car on the main road that just looked like it was turning onto the private road.

Whatever for? Like I said, I was last there in 1977, so it's probably completely different now. I don't remember the name of the hotel, but it was big and old.

That helps.

We didn't see him.



We only felt him.


(And by the force of the poke, he weren't that small.)

Oh well. I won't be living in a hotel anyway. I can only hope that my flat is haunted, I guess.
