The Ghostly Girl Buried Behind A Cellar Wall

I have to take stories I receive by email in good faith - in other words that they are true and trustworthy. On this basis I publish the following ghostly tale with a disturbing ending. See what you think!

"My name is Celia and I'm 17 years old. This scary event happened to me when I was only ten years old, but I still remember it...I am so freakin scared, thinking about what had happened seven years ago.

Anyways, I was playing dolls in my house when I heard a soft voice whisper behind my ear. I shivered, but I ignored it at first, thinking it was just a breeze coming from the window. I looked at the windows and saw that they were closed. But I forgot about it.  A while later, I heard someone whisper in my ear again. This time, I could make out the words.

"Celia, Celia, Celia." I looked around, but there was no one there. Then suddenly, I saw a little girl my age looking at me. She had a red skirt on with a white blouse. She looked pretty, if only her eyes weren't so dark and creepy. She called out, "Celia, Celia, Celia........ come in... to... the cellar." It was so scary to listen to her dry and shivering voice. But I just stood still and listened to her. She then disappeared. I opened the door and walked down the cellar stairs.

I saw the little girl again, and this time she was pointing at the ancient looking wall. She motioned with her hands as if she was tearing something down. I was confused, so I went back upstairs. I went in the kitchen to look for my mother. I found her at the table and told her about the little girl. She grew pale, deathly pale, after I described how the girl looked. She became almost frenzied and so scared I felt like I wanted to cry. But she shushed me and asked where the girl was. I told her down in the cellar and we both went down there.

I said that the red skirt girl was making tearing motions at the wall and my mother grew even more frantic. She called some builders she knew and asked them to make a hole in the wall in the cellar. They came the next day and soon broke through the wall. Inside, they found a small skeleton with a torn white blouse and red skirt. I was scared as hell at that time.

My mother started to cry, telling the builders how her little sister, Rose, disappeared wearing those same clothes and how everyone was upset, except for her uncle.

We then went to mother's uncle's house and found him home. When mother told him about the hidden body, he nearly fainted, but wouldn't say anything. Finally, he broke down and said that he had tried to molest the little girl when no one was looking, and Rose tried to run away. He was afraid that she would rat on him so tussled with her and she died. He hid her body behind the wall of the cellar."

  1. What a strange and creepy story! And how terrible for everyone involved.

  2. Mike,

    Nice ghost story and I realize you have to take these things at face value no matter your opinion.

    The story has many red flags for the trained eye.

    IMO, it's nothing more than a fable. I'm sure you know that aside from those who get a kick out of people believing their fiction, there are actual writers who test their stories out on forums before final editing for publishers.

    This story is likely done by an amateur writer because the mistakes are clear.

    Nothing against the story though as it was a fairly good one.

    I'd have posted it too had it been sent to me.

    Have a great day my friend!

    1. I'm getting back to the writer with a few extra questions - should probably have done it first!

  3. I was pretty spooked... it's always possible that this happened somewhere. :/

  4. I don't know what mistakes Scott is referring to, but I tend to agree that it seems made up. If it actually happened, there would be hell to pay for regarding the perpetrator, and the writer naturally would continue on to tell what happened. The uncle has confessed, so is he hauled off to jail? Does the family just forgive him and let it go? It also seems that the girl should've known about her mother's dead sister. That would be a family story. Also, would she really walk into the cellar after being spooked by the ghost?

    Now the writer needs to go to work on revisions! ;-) Rob

    1. I think it probably is at least part fiction. Not sure that a child though would have known necessarily about her aunt's death - she was only 10 at the time. Some cellars can be regularly used and ... yea, a few revisions due!
