This just a quick story.
I am a 35 year old man from England. This story took place nearly 25 years ago when I was 11 years old. I was at a prominent boarding school in the south west of England. At that age I was just starting to get interested in the ideas of the paranormal, and was sure my school was haunted, but until then I’d had no experiences.
It happened one night during the summer term. I got up to go to the loo, it was about 2 o’clock in the morning. It was a very clear night and the moon was bright, so it was easy to find my way through the long corridors to the loo without a torch. On the way back back to my dormitory I noticed how cold it was but didn’t want to run through fear of waking anyone up and being busted out of bed in the middle of the night!
My dormitory was half way down a corridor with a matrons flat next door and another larger dormitory at the far end. There was a bookcase next the door to that dorm, and a couple windows along one wall of the corridor letting in the bright moonlight.
I came round the corner at top of the corridor I paused at the top of the steps leading down towards my dorm, I could clearly see, in the moonlight, a boy stood next to the bookcase. He was wearing pyjamas, slippers and a dressing gown, and even though he was clearly looking back at me, I could not see his face!! A bolt of fear shot down my spine and my face went cold! “Who’s that!!” I stammered. Even though I couldn’t see his face, I knew he was looking right at me. But, without a word he vanished into thin air, he didn’t walk away, he just disappeared!!
I was rooted to the spot for a moment as I tried to process what I’d just witnessed. I broke myself from my thoughts and scurried back to bed, but didn’t sleep for the rest of the night.
A couple of years later, having not thought about it for some time, it was brought back back to my mind when I heard that just after the The Second World War a boy had been taken to hospital with pneumonia. He’d died there a few days later.
Was it him I saw that night? Maybe I’ll never know!! But, I’ve been looking for more evidence of the Paranormal ever since!!
