Rationally, I didn't believe in Ghosts. I figured that when we die,we rot,that's it,but that night on a warm couch with my sweetheart changed all that.

My girlfriend Bridget and I were sitting in the living room having a 

chat by the fireplace when suddenly she stiffened and cried out,shock 

and alarm in her voice. 

"Michael,who is that man staring at us,I thought we were alone." 

"Where?"I asked a bit surprised. 

"He just walked into the bedroom ,he was looking at us with a scowl on 

his face, I don't think he likes me very much." 

"Aw come on,Bridget " I said with a sneer,"not again, with one of your 


She was always "seeing things" which I thought was one of her quirks. 

"No,No,Michael,she cried alarmed," he's standing right there staring 

at us." 

She pointed at a bedroom . 

I looked but saw nothing."Yeah, right" 

"Okay," I said finally trying to humour her, "Can you describe him ?." 

She did and I was shock to say the least 

Intrigued, I  got up quickly and went into the bedroom .I have to 

admit there was a heaviness in the room as I entered.) However, I took 

out an old family photo album from a chest of drawers and returned to 

the living room still skeptical.. 

Tears were now in her eyes. 

Damn,I thought, she wasn't kidding this time, I told myself after 

seeing the tears. 

"Don't cry, honey," I said handing her the album "Now take a look and 

see if you can identify him" 

After flipping through the plastic pages a few times, she finally 

stopped and pointed to a certain photograph . 

"That's him."she said firmly."He's the person I just saw." 

I looked and gasped. My scalp prickled . A tingling, creepy sensation 

washed over me. 

I couldn't believe it!. 

"Are you sure?" I asked, still in doubt. 

"Yes, it's him alright,", she replied sniffing and turning away her 


I was flabbergasted to say the least, for she had seen  my grandfather 

who had died six months before I met her !
