Describe a time you were scared/ Describe a frightening experience you had You should say:
- When it happened
- Where it happened
- Why you were scared
- How you felt about it I’m going to tell you about a time that I feel I may have had a run in (experience) with a ghost. First, let me give you some background. After my mother’s death, my father, sister, and I moved into a new house that was built in the 60’s. Upon moving in, we got to know the old couple who had this house built and lived their entire lives there, now moving into a nursing home. They seemed to be quite friendly. I know that Ruth, the woman who lived there before, had a strong connection to her kitchen. When they moved out, she left a sign in the kitchen saying “Ruth’s kitchen”. I left it there to pay her respect for a while. However, one day I got tired of looking at that sign and decided to put it away in a drawer in the kitchen. To my surprise, when I came home later, the sign was hung up again. I quickly asked my sister and dad if they had put it up again, which they both denied. A sense of curiosity grew inside of me and I googled her and her husband’s names. Oddly enough, I found both of their names in the local obituary and discovered that they had both died just months ago, very close to one another.
I felt frightened because I was worried that Ruth felt that I was disrespecting her kitchen. I questioned if she would come to haunt me (be evil to) for doing such a thing; I felt that she was taking her kitchen back. With this said, I slept with one eye open (slept in fear) for the next following weeks. I left her sign hanging and decided to just go on (continue) with my life. Since this, nothing like this ever happened again and I feel that if her spirit is in the house, it is a friendly one.
