16. The little girl singing in the woods
“Last year, my family went camping at the same park we go to every year. Usually, we also get the same site, which is close to the bathroom and showers. This year, we booked a bit late, and we were placed waaay out in the back of the park which is a fairly secluded area surrounded by woods. It was a nice change, but a bit of a hassle (lots of walking to go fishing, go to the bathroom, etc.).
The first night we were there, my nephew woke up in the middle of the night, woke up my sister, and told her there was someone outside the tent. She said something then leaned up on the tent, he got scared and pushed back. She got outside, and there was nothing to be seen. We just dismissed it as a trash panda, even though my sister didn’t think that was it. The second night, we had a few friends over. They brought their dog who is the most well behaved dog I have ever met both with humans and other animals. We were all sitting around the fire when the dog started barking like crazy (she was tied to a picnic table sort of away from the fire/people). This was a super rare occurrence, so the owner got up to see what was going on.
When he took the leash off the table, she went crazy and pulled him toward the forest (she actually pulled him a good 10 feet, he obviously wasn’t expecting her to do that, she has never acted that way before).
I decided to grab a flashlight and check out the forest in the direction she was pulling. There was nothing. She has seen squirrels, raccoons, cats, etc. and never had she acted this way. Everyone took note of how odd that was, but again we just dismissed it as nothing (it did spark up a conversation about the “thing” outside the tent from the previous night though).
The third and final night we were there, we could see a storm coming in. The sky was lighting up, the thunder was loud, and the wind was crazy (obviously unrelated to the eerie events, but relevant to the story). We spent a good hour setting up tarps, covering the chairs, etc. Everyone crawling into their tents for the night, knowing that the storm was going to hit any second. I was the last to get in because I had to pee. I was at the edge of the site, facing the forest, pissing in the wind. The storm and the forest were spooky enough, but what happened next will forever be burned in my memory.
From the forest, I hear the sound of a little girl singing. Not like a fast-paced pop song, but a song with the tempo of a nursery rhyme. I couldn’t make out any words, but I was certain I was hearing the voice of a small girl. There were no other voices. I pushed that pee out faster than a laser. The second I finished, I turned toward my tent, a loud bang of thunder sounded, and I jumped into my tent JUST as it started to rain. My heart was pounding. I was sweaty and possibly a bit covered in pee (didn’t get to shake the last drop). In the morning I told my family…I feel like really no one believed me, but it happened and it was terrifying.”
17. The flying bag
“My parents moved when I was in college. The house they moved into had been built in the 90s. The owner’s wife had died in it but it’s definitely not a stereotypical haunted house and doesn’t have a lot of history.
I’m very skeptical, I’m not saying these are ghostly things, they’re just weird and I can’t explain them.
First, I was up late at night, all by myself in my room. I had a bag of craft supplies on the high shelf in my closet. It was wedged behind some small suitcases and duffel bags. Out of nowhere, the bag just flew off the shelf. I have no clue how it even got from behind the suitcases.
Same house, another time. I tend to shower late at night. My mom and stepdad were asleep, no one else was in the house. I got out of the shower and was drying off when the definitely locked (I’m the kind of person who checks the door 3 or 4 times to make sure it’s locked) bathroom door flies open, hard enough to bounce off the wall next to it. I got out of there fast.”
