So we went over there and saw an old woman and man screaming.

When I was in the 4th or 5th grade, I lived in a house on Shabona Street by the bridge in Streator. I have a nephew, who was 1 or 2 at the time, and he used to point at a big vent by the front door and told me that there were ghosts down there. In the basement there was a big wall that seemed to be unfinished, but my mother always said it looked like it used to be a coal mine. When I really thought about it, it did. Well, to make sense of this all, it was Christmas Eve. I've always had a history of having nightmares every Christmas Eve, so waking up at precisely 12 was no shock to me.
The shock was who I saw standing in the kitchen. I was on the couch in the living room because I wanted to sleep by the tree. Where the couch was set at, you could see directly into the kitchen. I saw a woman in an old dress with a man in a dirty suit with a little boy. They looked like a family that was trying to escape from something. The woman's head slowly turned to me, and she raised her finger to her lips and I heard a 'shh' in my ear. Then they went out towards the basement area and disappeared.

For about 11 years my family lived in a house on 12th Street. Not naming the address, but anyway when I was little I always told my mom about witches in the top of my closet. Then as I was older there would be a girl maybe about 10? Who would sit at the end of my bed and watch me sleep.
We always heard noises come from the basement when no one else was home but me and my mom. I think the ghost or whatever it was followed us to where we live now. I didn't believe in the paranormal or for people to come back as a ghosts.
Now I have so much proof it's scary.
