Do you Believe ~ Part 2

In ghosts ~ that is.

So it's time for another ghost story (you can read my first one here ~ and Lynn left a ghost story in the comments section).

Picture it ~

A big old house in a small college town.

5 bedrooms


big and old ~ did I already say that part?

Hardwood floors, cute little built ins  ~ lots of character that I didn't appreciate while I lived there my junior year of college with 4 other lovely ladies!

Anyway, the main floor housed the kitchen, dining room, living room, sitting room, 1 bedroom, and the bathroom.  Upstairs ~ the rest of the bedrooms.

It was a Sunday afternoon ~ a rare weekend actually, that I didn't drive "home" (an hour away) to work.  I was sitting in the living room, all alone, in our big, old house.  Probably watching some lifetime movie or something. :)

All of a sudden I heard creaking upstairs in one of the bedrooms.  It was a rhythmic creaking, in one localized area. Not the sound of someone walking around.  But a back and forth creaking sound.  Like the sound of someone rocking in my roommates rocking chair...... upstairs. It continued for at least 3 minutes ~ continuously ~ creek..creek...creek...creek... ~ back and forth. 


After listening to it for awhile ~ I locked myself in my bedroom, with my headphones on and my head in a book!

I get goosebumps just thinking about it! 

So do you believe?  Do you have a story to tell?

I've got one more for you that I'll tell you on Sunday ~ and on Sunday I'll host a linky party ~ I want to hear your ghost stories!  Come on, get ready to freak me out :)

Oh my goodness Wendy I've got to share... I've also heard like a rocking chair was rocking in that home that I wrote about the other day.. I could hear it rocking back and forth..and back and forth, as I was laying in my bed! The only thing is... there wasn't any upstairs, it was just the roof area attic that just had the wood beams..No floor of any sort.. I helped put in insullation up in the roof attic so that I could see what it looked like up there, and there's no way that a rocking chair could sit there and rock back and forth with the wood beams as they were situated... Scary!! I only heard it one time, but that was plenty enough for me!
