always talk about the two-story house across the street around the corner as being haunted, but I didn't want to acknowledge I was living in one myself.

Comment by anonymous: Hi. Yes, I grew up in a haunted house in Livermore on Central Avenue. I don't know where James Street is, but I believe you as we always heard footsteps on wooden floors every night though the floors were then carpeted. 1969 is when we moved in and though it was creepy at times we (my twin and I) survived, and somehow slept through the nightly footsteps down the hall. My parents never believed in spirits which surprised us. We found out that a son in the 1950s hanged himself in the basement. I was always creeped out by the basement. Also spirits said my name which was creepy.

When I was a younger kid my brother, twin, and I were coming back from a nice walk to the nearby park. My brother and I were ahead of my sister when we took an old way to get back to Smith Elementary School. In this old path there was a small wooden bridge. My brother had told my sister and me the legend of the Under Bridge Witch. Basically, a young girl who lived about 200 years ago had magical powers. She could make people do whatever she wanted. You could tell when she was using her magic because her eyes would change from a dark hazel to a bright green. The people of the neighborhood hated her, so one night the teenagers from the neighborhood snatched her from her bed. They put a bag over her head, so she could not use her magic, and dragged her to where the bridge is now.
Back then, it was a small river that was very deep. They tied her hands and feet and tossed her into the water, and she drowned. Many years later they built the school and the bridge. As time passed, the bridge aged and eventually had a small hole, right in the middle. So as my brother and I were walking, we looked down at the bridge, feeling colder. We took our steps on the bridge and looked up, getting off it as fast as possible. I suddenly felt the urge to look down the hole. I got on my hands and knees and peered down below. I saw blackness. I got up and looked back for my sister, and I looked back at the hole. Suddenly I saw a bright green eye ball looking up at me. I screamed and ran onto my brother with my sister trailing behind. We got home fine, and ever since then I wondered if it was my imagination or if the legend is real. .
