I remember the day I met my wife like it was yesterday. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and the birds were singing. She walked into the coffee shop where I was working and ordered a latte. I couldn’t help but notice how stunning she was. We struck up a conversation and before we knew it, we had been talking for hours.
We got married a few months later and moved into our dream home. It was an old house, full of character and charm. We spent many happy years together in that house, but things started to change after my wife’s mother passed away.
My wife became distant and started to have strange dreams. She would wake up in the middle of the night screaming, but when I tried to comfort her, she would push me away. I didn’t know what to do, I felt helpless.
One night, I woke up to the sound of someone whispering my name. I thought it was my wife, but when I turned over, she was fast asleep. The whispering continued, getting louder and more urgent. I sat up in bed, trying to figure out where it was coming from.
That’s when I saw her. A woman, standing at the foot of our bed. She was translucent and had a sad look on her face. My heart started pounding in my chest as I realized that this was my wife’s mother. She had come back to visit us.
I tried to talk to her, but she didn’t respond. She just stood there, looking at us with those sad eyes. I could feel the fear creeping up inside me as I realized that we were not alone in our home.
Over the next few weeks, strange things started happening around the house. Doors would open and close by themselves, objects would move on their own and we would hear footsteps in the hallway at night. It was like we were living in a horror movie.
I tried to talk to my wife about what was happening, but she refused to believe me. She thought that I was going crazy and that there was a logical explanation for everything that was happening.
But I knew better. I knew that we were being haunted by my wife’s mother’s spirit. She was trying to tell us something, but we didn’t know what it was.
One night, I woke up to find my wife standing at the window, staring out into the darkness. I went over to her and tried to hug her, but she pushed me away.
“I can’t take it anymore,” she whispered. “I can’t take the nightmares and the whispers. We have to leave this place.”
I didn’t argue with her. I knew that we had to get out of there before it was too late. We packed our bags and left the house behind, never looking back.
Years later, we still talk about that experience. We still wonder what my wife’s mother was trying to tell us and why she came back to visit us. But one thing is for sure – we will never forget the terror that we felt when we realized that we were not alone in our home.
