If you have had Mr. Strand, you’ve probably heard his famous ghost story. And if you’re going to have Mr. Strand in the future, you will probably hear this ghost story. Truth be told, when I first heard this ghost story I was at the edge of my seat just as panicked as Mr. Strand was.

Five years ago, Mr. Strand and his wife were expecting their first child, so they moved into a nearby house. Mr. Strand was exploring the house and, in the attic, he came across a photo of a young girl wearing early 1900s clothes. Understandably, he was freaked out. That’s the kind of stuff you see in horror films. So he left it there as to not disturb the girl and went about his daily life.

Eventually his son was born, and they put a camera baby monitor above his crib to watch him. One day Mr. Strand’s wife was watching the baby monitor and located an orb in the corner of the screen. As soon as she saw it, it flew off the screen. Mr. Strand didn’t believe her until he saw it for himself. It wasn’t a problem with the camera because, when they used it with their second child in a different part of the house, it worked just fine.

When their first child was able to talk, Mr. Strand and his wife could hear him talking in the middle of the night. They asked him about it and he casually said, “Oh, I’m just talking to the girl in the closet.” They asked if she was nice, obviously freaking out on the inside, but when he said she was, they decided not to do anything about it. As the son got older, he changed his answer and said she wasn’t nice anymore.

This is honestly one of the creepiest ghost stories I’ve ever heard. I want to hear more about it, but for Mr. Strand’s sake I don’t want anything else creepy to happen in his house.
