Teenage Lovers Mistaken For Ghosts
Certainly one of the biggest ‘signs’ of a ghost or haunting are strange noises in the middle of the night. Hearing bumps and knocks during usual sleeping hours is classic paranormal fare, and it is one of those factors that can really divide opinion about the existence of ghosts.
Mostly because so many other things can cause creepy noises that make the mind jump over any rational thoughts and believe their home is haunted.
We have told this tale in this space before, but now another case out of the Middle East, where two teenage lovers were mistaken for a pair of unruly spirits.
It began in the trading post city of Manama, the capital of Bahrain when a woman called in the police to deal with what she believed to be ghosts that had invaded her family home.
For one entire week the woman and other family members had been hearing strange sounds on the roof at night. When they would check to see what was causing the strange sounds, they would find nothing.
Some suggested the woman seek religious advice and help to solve the problem, but the woman turned to the police instead.
When the police came to the house they made a through search of the premises, leading them to find an unused attic room the family had forgotten about. Inside the room was the woman’s teenage son and a girl who had ran away from her own family.
The seventeen year old son admitted that he had hidden the fifteen year old girl in the attic for the last week, as he did not think his family would notice.
Meanwhile the girl informed police that she had indeed run away from home and that her boyfriend had offered to ‘host’ her at his home.
So another case here that really makes you want to really check into something before you decide it is the actions of a ghost or other forms of paranormal activity.
(And be sure to check the attic!)
