Most people would never admit that they believe in ghosts or spirits. They aren’t real; they are just stories and legends told by superstitious and paranoid people. But everybody knows somebody who has a ghost story of their own, something that they swear really happened. It’s someone that you trust, and it’s something that they couldn’t make up. There are such things as real ghost stories. I had one friend who swore that his house was haunted. Doors would open and shut, there would be random cold spots, one light would always get turned on in the middle of the day, and you could sometimes catch a whiff of perfume in the living room. I stayed over a few times, and I always felt uneasy. We never saw the actual physical embodiment of a ghost, we never had any photographic evidence, and we never had any proof whatsoever. We didn’t need any, that would take all the fun out of it. There’s something fun about being afraid.
