Just Jot It January 29th – Ghost

4605678_orig

It happened again! This was the second time that I have seen her ghost. She was wearing a flowing white wedding gown, barefoot, her long hair cascading and she was running. I was taking photos of some of the spring flowers that were peeking out in the garden – cherry blossoms, crocuses, daffodils and some tulips. When I looked at the photos, she was there in the background; just some part of her gown was shown. The first time I saw her, she was coming down the stairs, also in a rush. I just saw some parts of her black hair. I thought I was just imagining things, but that time, it was also very cold in that part of the house.

I rang my mother straight away and she said it was probably my great, great ancestor Maria Clara who was supposed to get married but the groom didn’t turn up. Ibarra, the groom was on his way to the church when he was captured by the Spanish Civil Guards. They accused him of rebellion and sentenced to be hanged. Maria Clara went to see him in prison but they denied her of that right. She went berserk and tried to kill the guard. In his defence, the guard shot her. It was very tragic.

  1. Oh, so sad 😦 but so well written… I think you have the start of an amazing story here! In the area where I live, there is a legend of a bride ghost who tripped down the stairs of the church on her wedding day. She can be seen walking the graveyard where her bones rest on the anniversary of her wedding. I’ve always wanted to see her, but the keep the graveyard locked at night since her headstone was vandalized in the late 70s.
