Stacy's Story that Accompanied the Hand of Doom!:

In keeping with the Halloween theme....
(True Story!)

When I was in college, I belonged to an outdoor club. Some of the members lived in a house together - a huge place, built in the early 1900s if not earlier. Most of them were a couple years ahead of me, and after they'd all graduated, I asked about renting it.

They always said it was haunted, citing examples of students hearing the piano being played when no one was in the room, or blankets lifted by an unseen hand to cover those who were sleeping. I took it all with a grain of salt - thinking they were just messing with me.

A friend of mine drove me over to sign the lease. As we drove up, I saw a woman standing in the back door -I could see her from the waist up, and thought she was one of the women who lived there. I waved, and started walking up towards the door. It was unlocked, but that wasn't unusual. We didn't see anyone there - not even the friend I thought I had seen. We looked around, went upstairs, but the only person in the whole house besides us was a guy passed out on the couch. We woke him up and told him what we had seen.

He sleepily asked what she looked like, and I described a short woman with short, blond hair and a red dress or shirt. He pointed at a painting hung on the wall. I had seen it before, but always assumed it was one of the guys' grandmothers. "Don't worry", he said. "It was just the ghost."
