We used to live in a house we rented in Glen Iris, Victoria. We lived there in the early 90's. We always suspected the presence of a spirit there, as we often heard footsteps through the house. Doors would often open and close by themselves in conjunction with these footsteps. During those times, we did not see any shapes etc. But, one evening, I awoke to see hovering about 2 feet above me, a woman wearing a long loose-fitting night gown. She was in a sitting position, and had long chest length black wavy hair. I got a real start and I closed my eyes very tightly for at least 30 seconds. However, when I re-opened them she was still there. I closed them again for a longer period and when I re-opened them this time she was gone.
The night before we left Melbourne, both my wife and I heard movement around the house and rummaging through the packed cardboard boxes. Then we both heard a thin whispering voice say "Please Don't Go". It was said twice, and we both heard it twice.
