It was a Friday night, my girlfriend and I were alone in my parents house. We were bored we wanted some excitement. There was a house down the street that was supposedly abandoned. 

The house had been abandoned for several years. Over time there was several rumors spreading about the house saying a brutal murder took place. We were just kids who were bored looking for some brief entertainment. It was half passed midnight and we left my house and made our way over to the house. We got to it. We opened the gate witch had an eerie noise to it. We walked over to the house, there was a lock on the door. 

I found a rock and smashed the lock. My girlfriend was scared I reassured her everything was ok. We walked inside the house. I called out “Hello?” We walked inside. Sarah found a light switch and she flipped it turning the power on. The door slammed shut. Sarah jumped. 

I told her everything was fine and walked over towards the steps. We heard a ticking sound coming from one of the bedrooms upstairs. Sarah walked by the grandfather clock and made her way up the steps after me. We walked into the third bedroom where we saw a clock it was stopped. “That’s weird cause it was just ticking” I said out loud. “I don’t like this.” Sarah said. The clock was stuck on 3 am. “The devils hour.” I said. Sarah got chills. Just then we both heard a loud crash happen like something fell from the steps. We ran towards the stairwell. 

We both had major goosebumps at what we had saw. The grandfather clock was turned over like it had just somehow been tossed down the stairs. We walked down towards the clock the clock had been stopped at “3 am.” Sarah said she was scared. 

So was I. We left. We got back home I checked the time it was 3:00 am on the spot. The next afternoon I convinced Sarah to come with me and we went back to that house, and saw that the  grandfather clock was sitting where it was originally at. Once again I heard the clock ticking upstairs. I walked up and the ticking stopped. 

I ran towards the stairs in time to see the grandfather clock again being forcefully shoved down the steps. We never again returned to the house but I did research. Every answer I got was the same. The house was haunted by a poltergeist. 

A spirit was possessing the grandfather clock and making it fall. I also read that it said “the spirit may be stuck and needs help to pass on” a few days later I decided to return to the house even though I said I wouldn’t. I walked upstairs and saw the clock in the bedroom. I saw the grandfather clock fall. 

This time I decided to check the clock out I found inside the grandfather clock a Gun. With a note. The note read:

 

“My name is mark grey I just killed Steve. You see we had a poker game and he lost. He couldn’t pay me. So I took his life instead...I know what I did was wrong so I’m planning to take my life tonight. Don’t try and find me once you read this I will be dead.” 

 

I called the police and showed them the letter. It turned out that mark was in fact still alive. The police showed up to his house and arrested him. 

 

The next day I showed up to the home and saw the grandfather clock was still smashed near the steps but this time a message was written on the wall for me that said 

 

“Thanks.”
