What it feels like to be haunted.

Extracts from this document...


Alex Scott Miss. Turner What it feels like... ...to be haunted The emerald green grass glowed under the dimly lit street light, and the grey misty fog blinded the distance. All that was to be heard was the cold repetition of the Tawny owl. The freezing winds punched the doors of the fifty year old houses. Shaking, they barely stood up to the hail beating up the straw thatched roofs. Nothing moved except, buried for fifty years, the ghost of Elysium, tearing silently though the small village. From 1988 to 1993 I lived in a cottage in the Yorkshire Moors that was nearly one-hundred years old. For fifty years of my houses' first life it belonged to an outlandish man who was hardly ever seen out of his house. All we know is that he wore a long tatty black cloak all of the time he was in and out of his house. ...read more.


The door is harder to open because of the massive freezing temperatures. On entry up the stairs the usual creaking symphony is performed by the flight of steps.

In complete fear and panic I blacked out and woke up the next morning completely confused about the night before. An exorcism service had to take place without a doubt and the medium was expected any minute. A service was performed with candles and communication with the spirit. The unwanted spirit left the cottage but this was only a short term solution. ...read more.


There is still some confusion to why the ghost never showed his face as it was always under the long black cloak as though he was hiding something. The photograph taken shows the ghosts face, and it is sort of face that was once there but looks like it has been melted and turns out in the photograph a big blurred mask. Finally, it seemed like peace at last for everyone who had been affected by the paranormal experiences and could get on with their lives. The atmosphere in the village soon changed as villagers were getting more involved with community life and what is going on. The moors are usually very creepy places but for our village that rule were abolished. The fluorescent yellow and red sun was sending its rays down on to the ground like lightening which brightened up the entire village. As far as we know our cottage is still standing after many years of service. The village still remains a peaceful and tranquil place, for now. ...read more.
