The Neighbor in the Window

Sadie from Indiana sent me the following e-mail:

Okay, So I read your book, and (of course) absolutely loved it!
Anyway...
Have you ever heard of anybody who could see spirits?
Not just sometimes, but all the time, whereever they are.
Well I can, and I have a pretty creepy story about my neighbor's house if you'd like to hear...

Of course I'd like to hear! And so Sadie sent me this chilling tale:

Okay....

When I first moved into my house, my mom made me meet the neighbors (ick). And the one on our left was an elderly man who I guess didn't like kids very much. I ended up being best friends with the girl in the house past his. But being the strange person I am, I had to investigate.

I asked my friend about him, and it turned out he was really weird (and he used to be a circus clown, but that's not important). I convinced my friend to help me. After a few months of living there, I was walking home from my friend's house late one night and I happened to see out of the corner of my eye, my creepy neighbor watching me from his window.

I was a little freaked out, but I didn't think much of it. After a few more times of that happening, I got really annoyed. I asked my mom about him (not telling her about him watching me), saying he was really weird.

Turns out he had died a month before!

Somebody else lives there now, but sometimes I still see the creepy neighbor looking out his window at me.

I've heard of being a good neighbor--this is ridiculous! And beyond CREEPY!! Thanks for sharing, Sadie.

That story is awesome! I can somewhat see ghosts. You are really lucky to have experienced that. I wouldn' be so freaked out. It would be totally cool to have seen a real ghost! One time I saw the ghost of an animal at a park one time. I asked my dad what kind it was and he said he didnt see anything there. he thought i was going crazy!

guys, not all ghosts are bad. i've seen a ghost a few times. it wasn't that scary. the ability to see/communicate with ghosts is a gift. do not fear it.

Carly said...

I'm right there with David. My parents are ghosthunters, and with them I've seen quite a few ghosts. Though some of them are bad, some of them don't even look towards your direction.
