Are they still there?.

I was born and raised in Caribou. I lived there for thirty years. I have been away for twenty years now. I will never forget my experience with a ghost. I was six years old when we moved into this apartment building on the corner of Glenn and High Street across from Monsons Market, and I believe it was a Key Bank. The apartment we lived in had an upstairs where the bathroom and two bedrooms were. My sister, who was five at the time, and I slept in one room. My four-year-old brother slept in the other bedroom. Mom slept on a pullout couch downstairs. I'm not sure how long we lived there, but I would guess less than a year. I woke up one night and saw this little girl, probably around nine or ten. She had long straight jet black hair. She was wearing a white cotton nightgown with some lace on the front of it. She was just sitting there staring at me and softly smiling. Oh, and did I mention she had two black eyes? It was like someone had beaten her.
The scariest part was that she was looking at me through the window. The UPSTAIRS window. I of course screamed and ran downstairs. Well, at least I TRIED to run downstairs, but the second I hit the top of the stairs, something or someone picked me up, and I sort of floated down the stairs. I was gently placed on the landing at the bottom of the stairs. When my feet touched the floor I hauled to the couch where my Mom slept. Of course she thought it was a nightmare. I saw that little girl quite often and was carried down the stairs several times. One night after seeing her in my bedroom window and running to the living room once again, I saw her in the living room window. She had never done that before or after that night.
Looking back, I think she wanted me to know something, but I have never figured out what it could have been. Years later I would tell my sister and brother about these events. Only to find that they had experienced the same ''floating'' down the stairs as I had. They, however, never saw the beaten little girl that I did. I asked my Mom if she remembered me running to that pullout couch every night. She rolled her eyes and grinned and said she did. I told her about the girl and the stairs. I also told her about my siblings' experiences in that apartment. Her mouth fell open, and she said ''Oh my God. I never saw anything there. '' She definitely believes it. I'm not sure if that building is still there or not. However, if it is and if you are reading this and you live in Caribou, Maine, don't ever move into that apartment building.

Comment by Beth: Wow what a scary experience! My grandmother told me as a little girl in Nottingham England their house was haunted and her and her sisters would float down the stairs. I've never heard anyone mention floating down the stairs until now.
