Miami Ghost Chronicles
Another true ghostly experience submitted to Miami Ghost Chronicles.
I'd like you to look into a condominium, which is where I used to live approx. 6 years ago. The only words I can use to explain the place is, infested! While living there, at least 5 people died, and about 1 year ago a man shot himself in the head and died on the 1st floor and another lady was murdered in the elevator.
The one prominent entity in that apartment building was a dark shadowy figure of a man, which seemed to have a negative origin. Lucky me, I was the only one in the apartment that he never had an encounter with. I heard about it on a daily basis from my sisters who constantly had to deal with it.
It seemed that the smaller of the two bedrooms (which was where both my sisters slept) was where all the activity was.
On one occasion me and my mother woke up due to the sound of my sister screaming as if someone was attacking her. Well when we reached the room she was screaming about something pulling on her legs, and we did see her struggling with it, my other sister on the other hand was sound asleep. As soon as we turned on the light, nothing was going on at all.
They also reported seeing this figure walk behind them while they were fixing themselves up in the mirror, or seeing it sit on their beds. Although the figure did seem evil, it never was violent with any of us, it only basically pulled practical jokes and of course the occasional scare.
On one occasion a friend of my sister's saw it sitting on the couch in the living room, where we had to proceed with leaving the apartment and taking her home. She never stepped foot back in that apartment. The halls of that place also had the quality of making you feel as if someone is watching you or following you, it gave you that numb feeling in your eyes that you get when you're afraid.
Of my many encounters I only had a handful there. One encounter was with a huge man, completely white, I know he had features and was wearing some sort of clothing, and he didn't seem threatening in the least bit but I still ran away because of course I see this man I don't recognize in my house and I'm like 7 years old at the time, so I ran!
I also had to change the location of where I slept because I felt such a negative feeling where I was sleeping. Also I would stay in my sisters' room every so often, which I heavily regret as I would also experience lights flickering on and off, and loud noises coming from the kitchen, as if someone was looking looking through the drawers. It never failed, the noise always happened, but it could only be heard from the smaller bedroom. Although we dealt with it for almost 6 years we never inquired on the history of that apartment, hope you could, I wouldn't mind knowing either.

Over the years I have had several ghost stories sent anonymously to me, and it's these quaint and subtle stories of hauntings that I find so fascinating, because you realize that ghosts make their prescence known in the most mundane of settings, and sometimes it's only in hindsight that we realize exactly what we were experiencing. I have excluded surnames and exact addresses in order to protect the privacy of families.
