The Ghost In My Friends House

I was about 14 or 15 years old at the time and I was living in Jacksonville, Illinois. I was spending the night at my friend Ashley’s house and her parents were out for the night.

Ashley has an older brother named Kevin. Kevin had severe mental disabilities and his father(step) wasn’t always exactly nice to him.

I had woke up in the middle of the night to get a drink of water. The way the house was set up, you could see into the living room from the kitchen, and straight down the hallway, with the bathroom and Kevin’s room to the left and Ashley’s parents room at the end of the hallway. They had the computer right up against the wall right by the corner to turn down the hallway.

It was dark so I couldn’t see very well, but I could just make out the shape of Kevin sitting with his back toward me at the computer. He was pecking at the keyboard, but the computer was off. I told him to go back to bed before his parents came home because I didn’t want him to get in trouble.

He sighed deeply and got up from the computer and walked down the hallway. Instead of returning to his room, which was the first room directly to the left, he continued down the hallway. He passed the bathroom and proceeded to his parents room and closed the door behind him.

I went to go get him because I knew what would happen if he was caught in there. I followed after him. When I looked in his room, he was laying in his bed fast asleep!  I was confused and a little scared at the same time. When I opened the door, the room was empty.

I told Ashley and her mother about the incident the next morning, and she told us that before they moved in, a man had shot himself in their bedroom. Needless to say, I never stayed at Ashley’s house again!
