A horror story. Ghost of the stairs.(ch1)(repost)

Bear with me my dear readers for few hours, days years and for lifetime.

Am I asking for more?

I think ‘no’ .(Lol)




Now I know. (I know…. I just know things, weird stuffs etc.).

Now it’s night here, let’s talk about some horror stuffs, real horror stuffs.


What do you see in the voids around you?


But, trust me there is something,

Something that has been there with you, keeping an obdurate eye on you.

Satan, yes, Satan is the grim reaper . An open enemy for humans.

They take forms according to your weaknesses and make you believe in what you should not believe.

Now, of course there are many incidences that you might have heard or knew about that, you may not believe but those who believe most of them knew not, what they must be knowing.

My father worked as employee in an government office of FCI (food cooperation of India) . He just wanted his goal to be achieved, that is, a house for us. I am so thankful to him for everything he provided sometimes going out of his budget.

He was short of money for the plot of land he was hoping to annex but someone out of nowhere appeared to my father to offer a plot of land with a meagre price tag, little did we know that it was haunted and not even that, the street, gali was called the Bhutahi gali,

The breath taking silence and desertness were the clear cut evidence for it and

My father had some idea about that plot but he ignored and does not gave the damn heck about this, he gave the contract for the house and within a year we shifted in.

Bam, first day first show for the alienating morbid , nothing happened.. thankfully.

Next day, sister coming with mountain of books rearranging it in a bookshelf, whenever we had quarrels I know how to get vengeance, just misplace her books, that’s it. They were her price possessions.

My sister was studying, It was 11:00 pm at night.

“Api, can you please switch off the bulb, it’s damn hurting my eyes”.

She switched it off, turning on the study lamp and studying. She was in intermediate and was a topper in her matriculation, she was given the star award in her icse board’s.(really)

RIGHT beside our house there were ruins of the haveli. Yes, we were living in the abandoned haveli, extending to hectares of land, one of which we totally banished it and reconstructed according to the architectural abstract , and the plot besides us was also purchased but hardly anyone came to look after it, it was full of bushes and serpents. Hissing sound and what not, can be heard.

I woke up, it was late night I could hear the ticking of the clock I saw my sister sleeping in her bed. I tread forward clumsily. I got some goosebumps, out of nowhere, I turned back and heard stamping sound at the staircase, my fear was increasing and all my senses became active ready to flee from there, I moved forward And gazed from the corner, I could make out the apparition, it’s outline in the pitch black darkness vanishing in the black hole, I could not hold on another stare, I fleed banging at my parents door, my mom opened the door I made up my mind am going to leave my sister alone and sleep with my mom and dad, I know that’s not going to happen.

“Aquib, you must not fear…. “, he said in a most manly voice.

“but Pops”,

he took to me to stairs and made me stood for 2-3 minutes. I stood there saw nothing.

“Coward ghost”, I blathered and saw my sister smiling at me.

“why my family is normal about it? ” I kept thinking about it.

I looked out through the window it was pitch dark outside, I hastily Cloacked myself in my quill and slept waking up irritated by the sun beam piercing my eyes.

“Why God, why the night is so short and days always long, taking forever to end”, I complained to God.

God must be replying, “Really? Son “.

I must had been thanking him.

I rearranged my stuffs unpacking from my cartoons.

“Wanna play carrom board?” I know she would deny though she was a champion in carrom.

“No, I have to solve my physics objectives”.

“Go on nerd”, feeling pissed off.

I ended up studying with her, trying to solve some pipe cistern problems and unitary problems. Today my grandma and grandpa would arrive, I know it’s for me. I then realize it’s for me. Grandma and grandpa would live with us, we were excited. I was feeling so happy I was pitying the ghost,

“Damn ghost you will now have tough time”, I thought discerning with the ghost.

This time my sister shifted to join my grandpa because she loved him a lot and he, in return loved her to death, he would polish her shoes, do her uniforms and press them neatly, she was his princess.

Few months later,

Everyone of my family came to the funeral of my grandfather.

My sister was feverntly grieving.

And his death made her so upset that she lost the pace in her studies for a month or so and because of this her marks in her test drops to 80s she was the type of student whose marks would always be in 90s.

Till now the actual cause of his death is unknown, he fell down while at night and, God knows, he ended in a weird fracture at his back and then after few weeks he left us with the heavenly demise . He wasnt that old, he was a sporty person and played football in his days.

My nanny too expired in our house, when she started living with us.


My sister was most affected by the paranormal activities.

The voice of the stamping grew louder each, and it was nearly impossible for me to cross the stairway lane. Something kept vexing to my and sister and myself. Things always seemed dead and strange.

Her books fell down abruptly, she always doubted me but i always insisted that wasn’t me, that ended up in petty quarrel until one night her books fell down right in front of her eyes, she ended up holding me tightly and screaming in my ears, almost rupturing my tympanum.

Small plethora of things becoming usual that I cannot recall even. The taps went on by itself, sometimes the tip tap sound etc. Ghost really have no job they all are relentless.

I could still remember the closed windows banged opened suddenly in the midnight, during our examination days, my parents never showed the fear in front of us, that gave us impetus. They would always behave as it’s normal.

Next part.

The snowy ghost.

Good night.

Don’t fear and chill ghosts really are cowards.

      3. DC, comics how can boo pragya. BATMAN is so badass, his life has been so inspiring full of struggle and all… League of shadows its like real fight, batman actually is a superb spy in comics, DC latest movies are ruining the story lines trying to compete marvel rather than focus on themselves…

  4. That was quite chilly. I love ghost encounters! Hearing and talking about them especially in the night is the best way I could spend my night lol…when I want to watch movies, it has to be horror or psychological thriller. Oh the chills it gives, nothing like that in the world. Your story was quite a movie! Loved it.

  5. Ohh so this is it! Silly me, I thought you wrote this post like days ago & I was already searching for the second part 😂 Damn, we should never underestimate haunted, old houses. They are almost ALWAYS creepy.


      1. Wow, such a great place, I hope to visit there InshaAllah then perform umrah or Haj. InshaAllah.
        It was good and blissful Alhamdulillah. 😊


  6. This is so so creepy and the worst part is that I am reading it at night!!
    If my books fall off the shelf by themselves then I will freak out, the shelf won’t remain there anymore!!
    Offo!!! Now I am feeling so damn scared!!


      1. Oh, don’t be sorry!
        As you said, I am a horror movie fan and yes, a quite strange one. I yearn to watch horrors and thrillers and then I creep out like anything.😂😂
        Don’t mind me!

      2. Open the link in browser if it’s not opening in app. Well I trust me i can’t see the link it vanished in app, I guess it cannot open YouTube link that’s why it ain’t showing up, it might be visible if you view it in browser.
