|Ghost stories (hopefully these will get my mind off Cassy)

This is a brief account of the strange things that have happened here over the years. Most have to do with who we call the ghost girl, an apparition that everyone but me has seen clearly. She appears, from my family's tellings, to be a young girl of about ten years old in a white dress, which may be a nightgown. My mother and I used the Ouija board to try and contact the girl, and when we asked her what her name was, the cursor pointed to the initials S.E. Then, as we later found out, we both wound up with the same exact name in our heads (protected to give her confidentiality). The last name just happened to be that of a street near us. Unfortunately I have done Internet research and have found nothing about an SE in this area.
Anyway, since I was little I used to be afraid of the ghost my mother and sister had seen on occaison. She always appeared in the corner of our living room (the room I'm in right now), and through the room into the hallway. She always disappeared at the end of the hallway. Once my mother thought she was my sister Crystal, and asked her what she was doing up. But no, it wasn't Crystal.
Recently, these appearances have gotten worse. One night, my sister Holly woke up in the middle of the night and saw a girl in the kitchen. All she could see was part of her face, and she said that, after watching the ghost for a while, she saw Holly and hurriedly moved so she could not see her. Holly did not know the approximate age of the girl, but she too said that she seemed to be about ten. A month later, I was in my room reading and heard Mama say that the ghost girl was in the hallway again. Then, a while later, Holly heard someone crying in the family room. There was no one there. This was the same night as when she was hanging up clothes and had a strong feeling that a dog was watching her. Again, there was no one there. And two days ago when I was watching Cassy, I heard soft crying and breathing coming from Holly's bed. I looked, and again there was no one there--both Crystal and Holly were out of the house.
Weird stuff, huh? That's all I can really say is attributed to her, but there does seem to be another prescence in the house, as well as a couple of our pets. Stay tuned! I'll post about them later.
