When I was in middle school I went to Brandenburg Middle School in Garland. And I lived behind the school in the little houses by the apartments on Random Circle. I've had a couple of different ghost encounters while living at the house.
1. One night I was sleeping in my room, and my window shutters were shut. I woke up and turned over to go back to sleep, and the window shutters all of a sudden slammed open and then back shut again. Now there was nobody in the house except me and my grandmother, and she was sound asleep in her room down the hall. Terrified, I turned over and faced the wall. The minute I closed my eyes, I felt the end of my bed go down like someone sat on it. Slowly, I felt the bed shift, and whatever it was lean over me and get inches from my skin. Terrified, I did not move a muscle, much less breathe. Then just as soon as it came, it went. I felt it step over me all of a sudden the weight on my bed was just suddenly gone. I do not know how long after that I stayed there, but after a little while I turned on my light and got up and searched the house, and nothing was there.
2. This was another night in the same house. I was sleeping in my room around 3 am. When we bought the house along one wall of my room I had built-in shelves that were nailed to the wall and were 1-inch thick wood, so they were heavy and strong and could not be taken down except with a hammer to pull out the nails. Well one night I awoke to a loud bang. I immediately sat straight up and turned on my light. As I watched in horror, 4 of the very top shelves fell down and crashed on the floor. The creepy thing was that when the shelves fell and when I looked back up the shelves, right underneath them had a slight curve in the middle to them as if someone had been standing on them to take the shelves down. Needless to say, I didn't sleep. I went and watched TV in the living room for the rest of the night.
3. This one happened not at my home, but actually at Brandenburg Middle School, during a Saturday band jam session in 8th grade. The band was taking a 20 minute break from practicing music and decided to go in the hallway where the art and science classrooms are and use our phones' flashlights to have a short dance party. We were dancing in the hallway and all of a sudden one of my friends starts running and screaming out of the hallway. Granted there were only about 3 or 4 of us and 2 of my other friends did the same. Me and my boyfriend at the time wandered down the hallway wondering what in the world they were screaming about. As we wandered down the hallway, we heard the noise of someone sweeping and the noise of a fan on in one of the classrooms. As we got closer we realized that the door was shut and locked, and we heard humming, a low radio go on when we got next to the door. When we heard footsteps come towards the door from inside the classroom, we ran just like our friends. I never went down that hallway again by myself.
I now am at college in Stephenville and am very happy here. But still to this day I remember those days and I still shudder at the thoughts of what happened in that house and that school.
