REAL GHOST STORIES
(THE SHADOW IN THE BASEMENT)

Do I believe in real ghost stories?

I will never forget one moment.

I was 8 years old.

I was playing with a ball in the backyard of my house, when it suddenly went down to the garage which was located in a lower part of the house. The door to the basement was open, so the ball went down right through the stairs.

By the entrance there was a little dark wine cellar.  I went after the ball at the very bottom of the basement, picked it up and turned around quickly to get out of that place that gave me a creepy feeling.

There it was…

A shadow! A frightening shadow standing still at the door of the wine cellar!!

It was staring at me coldly. It was a weird sinister sensation since it had no face or any kind of emotion. Though two more things caught my attention: the apparition was wearing an old black suit and there was an horizontal thin red line at ankle height.

After having that vision, the only thing I remember is running away as fast as I could to get out of there.

I never ever saw that shadow again, but for sure I will never forget it.

Basements are usually full of surprises. For many reasons we can expect low frequencies to predominate in these dark places.
