23 creepiest things kids said about their imaginary friends.

The twin one. Woah.
When Cliff Barlow was 7 years old, he moved into a new house with his young parents and baby brother. He liked his new house, all except for the basement of course. He thought it was creepy.
He used to always hear a tapping noise. The highlight was when his mother told him to go there to pick up some laundry, and he went and heard voices.
After that day, he never went back in ever again.
One day his life and his parents life, came shattering down. His baby brother went missing. In his crib was a ransom note saying “pay $20,000 or else the baby dies.” His parents contacted the police and they did everything they could but the baby was never found.
Cliff’s happy life came to a halt. He was robbed of an innocent childhood and a younger brother. He became miserable as did his parents.
20 years later, Cliff was driving along the road. He passed by his former house. Angry at all of it, and how that one night changed so much, he went back to the house to give it a visit.
He went to the basement, and furious as ever he punched the wall. To his surprise, the wall came crumbling down.
Skeletons of little children. There must’ve been 20-30 of them. He could even see bite marks of their little hands. And the worst part? They were all missing their skulls.
Police later called and identified one of the skeletons as his little brother.
To this day, the person who did this remains unidentified.

I have been saying I’ll do this for years. Finally, I get it done.
This weird and wonderful place is literally right behind the apartment block I live in. It takes about a minute to get to the first picture shown, and then you follow it up and find the road, which winds its way through the rock face with just enough room for single-file traffic. I went up there to take these pictures early in the morning, seems I’d been up all night and it seemed like a better idea to go early in the morning than in the evening, for reasons which shall be explained.
Cars on the road are rare - you’re more likely to see a deer - but this particular stretch of road hides something a lot more sinister. Placed under the cut is the account I’ve been meaning to write for years, ever since I first started seeing the creature, but if you just want to enjoy the pictures and not think about what’s lurking in them, I don’t blame you.

“Sometime during the night of August 16th, 1952, the small town of Ashley, Kansas ceased to exist. At 3:28am on August 17th, 1952, a magnitude 7.9 earthquake was measured by the United States Geological Survey. The earthquake itself was felt throughout the state and most of the midwest. The epicenter was determined to be directly under Ashley, Kansas. When state law enforcement arrived at what should have been the outskirts of the farming community, they found a smoldering, burning fissure in the Earth in the earth measuring 1000 yards in length and approximately 500 yards in width. The depth of the fissure was never determined. After twelve days, the state-wide and local search for the missing 679 residents of Ashley, Kansas, was called off by the Kansas State Government at 9:15pm on the night of August 29th, 1952. All 679 residents were assumed to be dead. At 2:27am on August 30th, 1952, a magnitude 7.5 earthquake was measured by the United States Geological Survey. The epicenter was situated under what used to be the location of Ashley, Kansas. When law enforcement investigated at 5:32am, they reported that the fissure in the Earth had closed.
In the eight days leading up to the disappearance of the town and its 679 residents, bizarre and unexplainable events were reported by dozens of residents in Ashley, Kansas and law enforcement from the surrounding area.
On the evening of August 8th, 1952, at 7:13pm, a resident by the name of Gabriel Johnathan reported a strange sight in the sky above Ashley. The town itself, having no official branch of law enforcement, called into the police station of the neighboring town of Hays. Gabriel reported what appeared to be a “small, black opening in the sky.” Within the next fifteen minutes, the Hays police station became overwhelmed with dozens of phone calls all reporting the same phenomenon. The phenomenon was never reported by any neighboring communities. A decision was made to send a trooper to Ashley to investigate the matter the following morning.
At 7:54 am on the morning of August 9th, 1952, Hays Police Officer Allan Mace radioed the Hays Police Station. He reported that, despite following the one way road leading into Ashley, he had become lost. According to his report, the road “continued along its normal path, but somehow ended up back in Hays.” Officer Mace went on to add that the road never curved, or bent in any direction. At 9:15am, seven of the town’s 10 police cars were sent to investigate the situation, and all members of the team came to the same conclusion. The only road leading into Ashley stopped leading into Ashley, but instead led back to Hays. Phone calls continued to pour into the Hays Police Station, all reporting that the black opening in the sky continued to grow in size. All callers were advised to remain inside, and to not travel outside unless absolutely necessary. At 8:17pm, Mrs. Elaine Kantor reported her neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Milton, and their two children, Jeffery and Brooke, missing. According to Mrs. Kantor’s phone call, the Milton’s attempted to leave town in their family car earlier in the evening. They never returned. Law enforcement officals from Hays never reported the car, or individuals, coming up the one way road.
At 7:38am on the morning of August 10th, 1952, phone calls from Ashley into the Hays Police Station reported that the town was in total darkness. The sun had never risen. At 10:15am, at the request of Hays Law Enforcement, a helicopter from Topeka, Kansas flew over the region in which Ashley, Kansas stood. The town was never observed from air.
At 12:43pm on the afternoon of August 11th, 1952, Ms. Phoebe Danielewski called into the Hays Police Station. She reported that her daugter Erica had begun to have conversions with her father, who died three years prior in a drunk driving accident. To add to her concern, Ms. Danielewski reported that Erica was attempting to go outside into the dark, to “join them.” Over the course of the next twelve hours, a reported 329 phone calls were placed into the Hays Police Station all describing similar phenomenon with the children of the town.
The following morning of August 12th, 1952, the sitation became dire. During the middle of the night, all 217 children in the town of Ashley, Kansas disappeared. A reported 421 phone calls were placed into the Hays Police Department. Unable to be of any useful assistance, Hays Law Enforcement instructed all callers to remain inside and to avoid any and all attempts at finding the missing children.
At 5:19pm on the evening August 13th, 1952, Ashley elderly man Scott Luntz reporting a growing, distant fire to the south. According to his description, the fire seemed to turn the distant black into “bright red and orange [that] seemed to extend high into the sky.” Throughout the rest of the day, calls continued in, stating that the fire, in addition to moving north, now seemed to “come out of the black sky.” No fire was ever witnessed by any of the neighboring communities or law enforcement officials.
The reports continued until 12:09am on the morning of August 14th, 1952. The last phone call, placed by a Mr. Benjamin Endicott, reported that the fire in the sky had grown so intense that it began to appear as daytime over the town. The phone call ended abruptly: (FROM THE PHONECALL PLACED BY BENJAMIN SHERMAN ENDICOTT)
Benjamin: Just hold on….wait…
Benjamin (con’t): Yeah, yeah I see something. It’s to the south. It looks like-
The next phone call wouldn’t be placed until the following evening.
The following is the entire transcript of the final phonecall to be received by the Hays Police Department out of the town of Ashley, Kansas. It was placed at 9:46pm on the evening of August 15th, 1952. In this recorded phonecall, the officer on duty is Officer Peter Welsch. The caller has been identified as Ms. April Foster.
Officer Welsch: Hays Police Department.
Officer Welsch: Hello?
Foster: YES…yes, hello?
Officer Welsch: Ma’am, who am I speaking with.
Foster: My name is April, April Foster. (Coughs) Please, sir. Please help me.
Officer Welsch: What is happening, ma’am?
Foster: Last night….last night they came back.
Officer Welsch: Ma’am, I’m going to need you to -
Foster: LAST NIGHT THEY CAME BACK! (Cries)
Officer Welsch: Ma’am, I’m going to need you to calm down, and speak clearly. What happened? Who came back?
Foster: (Sobbing). Everyone.
Officer Welsch: Everyone?
Foster: They all came in the fire.
Officer Welsch: What do you mean everyone?
Foster: My son…..I saw my son last night. He was walking… he was walking down the street. He was burned. Jesus Christ HE WAS BURNED.
Officer Welsch: Ma’am I -
Foster: He died last year. I raised him since he was a baby….it was just me and him. I told him to watch for cars when he rode his bike. But he never wanted to listen.
Officer Welsch: Ma’am, what you’re saying isn’t making any sense. You said everyone came back?
Foster: ARE YOU FUCKING LISTENING TO ME? EVERYONE. Everyone came back. Everyone who died, or went missing, they’re back. And they’re looking for US! (Cries). He…he said: “Mommy, I’m okay now! See, I can walk again! Where are you, Mommy? I want to see you!”(Sobs).
Officer Welsch: ….Ma’am, where are you now? Are you safe?
Foster: I’m hiding. Just like everyone else. We saw them coming through the fields….and….some people opened their doors for them. God, the SCREAMING. (Pause). I don’t know what happened to them. But their houses caught fire and they….caved in. I have my curtains drawn. I’m hiding in the closet right now and- (Silence).
Officer Welsch: Ma’am, is everything alright, are you okay?
Officer Welsh: Ma’am?
Foster: (Glass Breaking). Oh…oh my God.
Officer Welsh: Ma’am?
Foster: Something just came in. (Muffled cries).
Officer Welsch: Ma’am, stay as quiet as you can. Don’t make a sound.
Foster: (Muffled: “Mommy…..mommy?”). (Sobbing). He came inside.
Officer Welsch: Stay absolutely still. Don’t leave.
Foster: (Sound of muffled footsteps. Muffled: “Mommy? Mommy, where are you hiding?”)
Officer Welsch: Stay quiet.
Foster: (Sound of heavy footsteps. Laughter. Muffled: “I found you, MOMMY!”) (Indiscernable screaming and noise).
Officer Welsch: Ma’am? MA’AM??
The following morning, at 6:55am, the law enforcement officals of the Hays Police Department arrived at the location of Ashley, Kansas. A smoldering, burning fissure in the Earth was all that remained.”
i think i just shit myself reading this

This is the first time I am placing my story online. I have read plenty of your stories and find it very interesting that so many people believe in the paranormal.
I live in a small town East London, South Africa.
A few years ago my Step father passed away so I moved in by my mother. From the very first night strange things happened. The kettle would boil by itself, we thought it was an electrical fault and got a new kettle but that did not help and it still does it to this day.
Another thing is when I go to bed it feels as if someone or something sits at the edge of my bed. You can feel the bed sink in. The one day I was talking to my Mom when all of a sudden her bedroom door slammed closed in my face; we were both in shock as there was no wind.
A lot of the time no matter where you are or what the time of the day is you can feel something touch you. Its so slight but trust me its THERE, even a breath on the back of your neck, warm air and a slight hand stroke through your hair.
The previous owners were very sweet old people who would not harm a fly, and I highly doubt my step father would scare us. A lot of the time my dogs sit and stare at the wall in the lounge and growl and you will get a strong sense of being watched. I catch movement in the corner of my eye but when I look I see nothing.
One day my Mom called me gesturing not to make a sound, look up she pointed with her finger, wow the light was swinging like someone had pushed it really hard, but it was only us at home and absolutely no wind what so ever. I still get goose bumps thinking about that!
Thank you for reading and please feel free to comment, I would love to know what you guys think of this, my Mom seems to think we have a demon in our house, I don’t know what to believe?
