Animals that Haunt?

The Witch In My Room II

Just this past month, I saw a really strange thing. I was sitting in my room, and I was lonely because my friends hadn't called for days. After a few minutes the room got really cold, and I got scared. But no one was there. The temperature went back...
An Old Friend?

An Old Friend?

I thought this was really weird and decided to tell about it. Back in 2001 when I was 11 I got really sick. I went to lie down and started to feel really hot, probably from the fever. Then suddenly I felt something very cold on my head like...
