Oldham, Greater Manchester: He just wants to talk.
I'm only 16, but this is something I have witnessed in my kitchen over and over again for at least 6 years now. I don't believe it to be a haunting, but I believe it is an emotional re-enactment stuck inside the building and was never solved.
Picture this - a sink on one counter, an oven and hobs behind you, and an open counter at the side. Whenever I am in the kitchen for over 10-15 minutes, a feeling of guilt and anguish comes over you as if you've just had a massive argument. In the corner of your eye, a man of around 6' in height walks past behind you, then leans on the kitchen counter at the far end. He leans in a way as if to say 'we can't be like this forever', if you understand what I mean. When you turn to look at him or talk to him, he disappears, and the feeling of guilt and anguish just goes too. The first few times I thought it was either my dad or my brother coming into the kitchen and just leaning there and I would say whilst washing the pots 'are you going to help me?' But when no reply was given I turned to look and they weren't there. Has anyone else experienced anything like this before? It's not an issue because I've lived with it long enough now. The house itself has a pleasant homely feeling, as if you're welcome and free to do as you please in it. It's a traditional red-brick terraced, and if it was my choice I'd live there for the rest of my life. There are two other things that me and my family have witnessed in the house, but I'll post them at a later date. :)
