Nikolas’ Ghost

Well this happened a few months ago, I was 14 and my parents and I moved from San Antonio to California because my dad was offered a job as a photographer. Anyways we travelled to California by car and it took two-and-a-half days to finally get there. So when we got there my dad called the guy who offered him the job and said, “Hey, we are all here,” and my dad puts the phone on speakers so we could hear what’s going on, and the boss says, “Ok meet me in the small town of Hemet and we’ll go to Starbucks and discuss the plan.” So anyways we arrive at Starbucks and he walks up to us and we expected him to be in a white old t-shirt but no he had slim jeans, white v neck, blazer, silk scarf and we were like, “Whoa he’s cool.” So anyways we talked for a good hour and finally we decide the plan, we get up, shake hands and walk out of the coffee shop with our hopes up. Anyways we start looking for a house and after two days of sleeping in hotels we finally find a house we can afford. The former owner of the house claimed that the house was haunted, that’s why he moved out, but we thought nothing of it, he’s just a crazy old man. So we start to unpack and settle down, you know the usual. As I’m unpacking my clothes and my other stuff, I hear noises coming from the attic. I then start to remember why the old man moved out, so I just slapped myself and said, “No Nikolas, don’t be a idiot, there’s no ghost,” so I just shake it off and go back to my unpacking. Later on after we finished unpacking we started to relax, I got on my laptop and started emailing my friends back in San Antonio to see how they were doing. Then I hear that noise from the attic again. I decided to go see what was going on, when I get up there the noise ceased. I looked around the empty attic wondering what was causing the noise, it was really spooky in there, so I went back down to my room and continued what I was doing. Night approaches and as I’m getting ready for bed, I hear the noise again, this time I just ignored it and hopped in bed. I woke up in the middle of the night, it was about 2:00 or 3:00am and I heard the noises again. I started getting a little nervous, the noises stopped but a minute later I heard footsteps coming towards my room. At that point I’m terrified, I pull the sheets over my head, the door opens and these heavy footsteps are walking towards my bed. I held my breath for a few minutes and closed my eyes. A second later the footsteps go away and the door closes. The next morning I woke up at about 9:00am, I just laid in bed thinking about what happened last night. I finally get up from bed and as I’m walking over to the kitchen, I overhear my parents discussing something that happened to them last night. I thought to myself, “Hey, I’m not the only one who had that experience.” So I walk into the kitchen and when my parents noticed me walk in they stopped the discussion they were having and said good morning to me. I said good morning back to them, got a glass and filled it up with orange juice and went back to my room. Sometime in the afternoon my dad’s manager paid us a visit to see if we were all settled in. He asked us if we wanted to join him for lunch, my parents agreed, but I said, “No, I want to stay home,” but of course my parents have a thing for making a good impression, so they talked me into going. We finally get back from lunch and as my dad opens the door we hear crashing coming from inside the house. He opens the door quickly but nothing, everything is in good condition, nothing is broken, that’s when we hear the crashing again, it came from my room. My dad rushes in fast and realizes it was just an action movie on tv that was making all the noise, but that can’t be, I turned off the tv before we left for lunch. Anyways my dad spends all night getting ready for his first day on the job, he was really frantic, me and my mom tried to calm him down, but when we did, he yelled at us, so we just decided to let him do whatever he has to do. Anyways I hop in bed and like 3 minutes later, I’m fast asleep. All of a sudden I hear these heavy footsteps coming towards my bed, that’s when I finally say to myself, “I’m not scared anymore.” I pulled the sheets from over my head but nothing could’ve prepared me for what I was about to see, it was a man, he had a long black beard and moustache, he was wearing a black overcoat and was holding a shovel in his hand. I could see my drawers right through behind him, I was terrified. I thought he was going to kill me, so I started praying. By the time I knew it, he was gone. I had trouble sleeping the rest of the night but I managed to get some sleep, the next morning I tried to tell my parents what happened but as I started to explain they stopped me and said they already knew. I was like, “Great, now all we have to do is ditch this house and get a better one,” but they said it wasn’t that easy, that it would take a while. So anyways things start to cool down, the ghost or spirit doesn’t show up, the noises went down, and my dad was enjoying his new job. Until 3 months later when we finally put the house up on sale, things started to turn bad, the noises started to come back, the ghost of the man started to appear more often. I think the ghost was angry about us leaving him. Anyways we finally had everything packed up. As we make our way for the door, the chair in the living room flew across and almost hit my dad. Then everything in the room started flying and hitting us. We tried to open the door but it wouldn’t open. Finally my dad grabbed a chair and broke the glass door. We ran out, got in the car and drove away fast. A few weeks later, we found a better house that’s much closer to the studio my dad works at, and ever since then our lives took a turn for the better, but we will never know who that ghost was, we’ll be better off not knowing.
