    The Green Lady of Fyvie Castle

    A few years ago I visited Fyvie Castle just Aberdeen outside of Scotland, it was here that I first heard this story and then was pushed down a staircase by the Green Lady. The story I will tell is based on the history of the castle and my personal experience. Lillias Drummond married Lord Fyvie in 1592 and born him five daughters. The Lord desired a male heir, when Dame Lillias did not provide him with a son, his eyes started to wander. Some believe in order for him to rid himself of his wife he locked her in a tower and starved her to death. She died on May 18th 1601. Shortly afterward, he married a younger woman named Grizel Leslie and on their wedding night, they were disturbed by strange sounds and heaving sighs coming from outside their second story window. In the morning they discovered the name “D. Lillias Drummond” carved into the window sill upside down. Her ghost is said to roam the corridors of the castle, bemoaning the betrayal of her husband and leaving behind a scent of Rose petals in her wake. I have seen the carving and so began my encounter with the Green Lady of Fyvie Castle.

    Two Military Executions

    This is a retelling of a ghost story by Ambrose Bierce. Bierce died in approximately 1914, so it is out of copyright. The story takes place in the early years of the US civil war. A soldier strikes a superior officer who is someone he has known since they were boys. When the officer files a complaint against him, there is a court martial and the soldier is sentenced to death. The officer if full of guilt, and the soldier refuses to forgive him before he is executed. The unit then is sent into combat, and as they assemble on the battlefield, they discover that the spirit of the executed soldier is still with them.

    The Haunted School of East Coulee

    There is that one place in every town. That old school, hospital, church, apartment block — old red brick, large glass windows, the old concrete foundation partially out of the ground. That place that we all talk about as being haunted by ghosts of crazy people that died there, or the young kids that broke in and nosed around and everyone made it out except for that one friend.
    Well, this old school that is in my town, is like that, but the stories are true. There are no kids that got murdered there, but there are loads of kids, young men and women, and many other folks who died there because of a great plague; and many of them have never left. They still roam the halls of this old school looking for someone who will help them find their way home, to families that have long since died, too.
    A sad story from real life, that affected so many of our ancestors but history itself, seems to want to forget the great sad horror of this event. Do you want to know more? Come sit a spell and I’ll tell you all I know.

    The Grey House

    This story completes Kerry's trilogy on creepy houses. It begins with quotes from the neighbourhood about the house. It is a tale about neighbourhood kids who lose many balls in an old house, but refuse to get them until the day that the prized Super Bowl football ends up in the house. The group confronts frightening human/ supernatural creatures in the house, and also the evil within one of their own.
