Real Short Scary Stories – Ghost of Mrs. Clark
A few years ago my aunt moved to a small town. She rented a house from the real estate agency before moving to the town. The agent wrote her that it was a large house and in a good locality. Also the rent was only fifteen dollars a month. She thought there must be something wrong with the property as the rent was too low. She took it anyway. She sent her daughter Marjorie and me to the town before her. So we would be there when her furniture came. We went one day and she was to come the next.
Marjorie and I got to the house in the afternoon and were astonished when we saw it. It was a good looking house and in the best locality of the town. Marjorie and I decided to stay there alone that night, as my aunt would arrive in the morning. All the furniture came that afternoon. We unpacked some of it and looked all over the house and yard and decided that we liked the place very much.
We had a bed put in one of the bedrooms upstairs, so we could sleep there. We locked up all the house and went to bed about eleven o’clock. Twelve o’clock came and we were not asleep. Neither of us could go to sleep. One o’clock came and still we were awake. Another hour passed. We heard the town clock strike two. About ten minutes after, I heard the door open. I grabbed Marjorie, for we had locked the door. A woman walked in.
Then We Saw She Was Not a Human Being
She had on a dark dress and walked up to the bed and looked at us. Then she walked all around the room as if she was looking for something. She even looked under the bed, then walked out of the room and back again. The moon was shining bright and it seemed as if the moonlight followed her everywhere she went.
We both kept our eyes on her. We both were so frightened that we could not move. I recognized her as Mrs. Clark. I had seen her once before, when I came to this same town and spent the night to change trains. I had seen her and her husband in the hotel I stayed at, and had asked who they were. She was a good looking woman and well dressed. When I recognized her I was not so frightened. I thought maybe she lived in the neighborhood and was walking in her sleep.
I called her by her name: “Mrs. Clark! Oh, Mrs. Clark!”. She turned to me and gave a terrible look as if she could kill me. I was sure then that she was the same Mrs. Clark I had seen at the hotel. I decided that I would get out of bed and grab her and wake her up. So I got out of bed, Marjorie also, for we were holding on to each other. She walked out of the room, and all over upstairs. We could never get hold of her, but I was sure she was Mrs. Clark and must be walking in her sleep. She went down the stairs as if she were flying. I could swear she never touched a step.
Haunted Stuff Near Me
When she got to the foot of the stairs, she turned around and looked back at us. Then we saw that she was not a human being.
We were so frightened that we both screamed. Now we wanted to get out of the house, but how could we do it. We screamed and she was still at the bottom of the stairs looking at us. We screamed until we awoke the man next door, but he could not get into the house as it was all locked. He came to the front door and called to us.
When he called and knocked on the door, the woman walked to the back of the hall and into the dining room. We ran down the stairs and opened the door, without looking. When we walked out of the door, Mrs. Clark walked out with us and disappeared on the porch.
Former Residents Of The Haunted House
Marjorie and I both fainted. When we came to, we were next door. I told the woman next door that the phantom looked like a Mrs. Clark I had once seen.
She replied that Mrs. Clark had lived in that same house and that she had hung herself five months before in the very bedroom that Marjorie and I had been sleeping in!
She said that two other families had rented the house, but neither had stayed more than one night. So I thought that Mrs. Clark had appeared to both of these families just as she had appeared to us.
When my aunt came, we told her what had happened. Then she had all of her furniture moved the same day. But Marjorie and I will never forget our experience in the Clark house. Every time we see the moon shining bright we think of that terrible night. We are both afraid of the moonlight.
