The Lady in the bathroom
The inside of the house always seemed to be just a little darker and a little colder than it should have been. It was a very old house with some parts eaten by termites. Cobwebs littered all over the porch. A divorced mother and her three year old son moved into the spooky new house. The mother had noticed it would save on cooling costs so she bought the house not knowing what lies inside.
Soon after she moved in her, best friend came by. The mother and her friend sat on the porch and talked for a few minutes, her friend seemed uncomfortable the whole time. The mother saw fear from her friend’s body language. Something in the living room caught her attention. Her eyes got big. Then she said, "I have to go." The mother asked her what was wrong but she didn't respond and tried to change the subject. On her way out the door her friend finally said, "This house is haunted.”
The next day that night her son casually asked the mother who the old lady in the bathroom was. The mother yelled “WHO!” The mother bravely checked the bathroom wondering if the woman her son saw was a murderer, thief, or convict. After a clean thorough check, she found nothing suspicious. She ended up thinking her child had hallucinated.

The mother walked in to the house and as soon as she got inside, a framed photo on the wall shot off the wall. She screamed with all her might. The picture shot horizontally away from the wall, and it landed on a mosaic table with enough force to break some of the tiles off. The picture was a portrait of her and her son. She called the cops, but the cops said that there was nothing in the house, just a freak accident. The mother started to think of what her friend said.
After living in the house for a week,

    Most of the times, the room is dark. There are days when it is bright and I can see almost everything clearly. The sunshine is reflecting through the cracks in the door, spreading across the room. My face breaks into a smile, my eyes shine and happiness fills my heart as I think I can leave the darkness. I can leave and be happy, be myself and no one will care. I open the door, just a little, and take a small peek. When I see the happiness shine, I expect to see smiling faces, people saying they'll…
