The Squiggle is a real ghost story about a young boy who sees a scary shadow man one night while he is lying in bed.
When I was young, my parents lived in a house that had been built in the 1920s. One evening, my parents had gone out and I was alone in the house. I was lying in bed trying to get to sleep. My bedroom door was open and from my bed, I could see all the way down the hall to the front door.
I rolled over in bed to get comfortable and, out of the corner of my eye, I noticed something at the end of the hallway. All these years later, it still gives me goosebumps to think about it.
There was a black, shadowy figure, but it was vague and indistinct. It was in the shape of a man, but it looked like black squiggles, like when someone scribbles a human shape on a piece of paper, but the squiggles were moving… like static or electricity or animation… that’s the best way I can describe it.
There was no sound. It was eerily silent.
Then the squiggle man noticed me looking at him. He reached out and began beckoning towards me. I was so scared, I couldn’t move. I couldn’t even scream.
All of a sudden, it just came rushing down the hall towards me. I was just frozen… petrified with fear.
As soon as it reached the doorway to my bedroom, the door suddenly slammed shut on it with a loud BANG!
I screamed and yelled for my parents, but they weren’t home. It was one of the few moments in my life when I was scared out of my mind and couldn’t comprehend what I had just seen.
I opened my bedroom window and scrambled outside. I didn’t go back into the house until my parents got home about an hour later.
I didn’t believe in ghosts then and I don’t know if I believe in them now, but I know I saw something. I just don’t know what that something was.
So… the door saved him?
Hi guys! I’m new here. I thought this story was kind of boring.

Wow, where’s all the appreciation for a new story? I liked this story, it wasn’t that boring. To the few of you above me, you guys do realize the point of this scary story was to put you in the drivers seat? All of you complain how the stories are getting repetitive, and then when something different comes up you complain how boring it is. How about you just appreciate they are posting stories at all? SFK doesn’t need to post stories and can easily dissappear for awhile like they did a few months ago.
best scary story ever =.= not bad,not good
-_-… Boring not able to scare my shit out…!! I give only 2.8 out of 10 scream
Wasn’t that scary! I felt it boring!
To be honest, the story wasn’t scary, but if I were in that room, I would be screaming my head off! Plus, I would jump off the window, even if I break my leg.
