Our story today comes from Kim. That is all I know about her except that her story is amazing. I tried to track Kim down so that I could give her proper credit, but I was never able to do so. This story aired very early on in the podcast history and was used in a As Read By segment
I’ve never lived in a haunted house, but my mother did as a teen. Other houses on her street had strange things going on too. A few homes away from her lived a man and his family. One night, one of his daughters went to bed with a bad headache. The next day she had passed away from an aneurysm.
After the funeral, the family went away to get their minds off the tragedy, and they asked my uncle to check on their pets. My mom and dad (they were dating then) went with my uncle to take care of the house. My mother had heard there was a grand piano there and she wanted to play it. My dad was studying to be a veterinarian so he thought he could be useful.
After entering the house, my uncle and my father headed to the basement to care for the animals. My mother went straight to the piano on the ground floor. She was playing it when she felt something brush her ankles. She thought a cat must have left the basement and walked past her. She kept playing, and she felt it again. She looked under the piano and saw nothing. When she started again, she felt hands clasp her legs tightly. She pulled away, dashed to the basement door, called my uncle and father, and waited for them. When they all walked outside, my uncle could tell my mom was rattled and asked what was wrong. She told him what had happened, and he turned white.
Later after the group got home my uncle told them that he knew the family very well. The daughter who passed away liked to play a game with her father. When he would sit down to play the piano, she would crawl underneath, grab his ankles, and push his feet up and down on the pedals.
