Strange Paranormal Investigations

This is from a ghost tour guide.
Everything was pitch-black, but I didn't bat an eyelid as I walked into the psychiatric ward.
I worked as a guide for Tasmania's Most Haunted and took groups around Willow Court, the state's oldest asylum.
In my three years doing this work, I'd seen lots of orbs appear out of nowhere, along with a headless figure wearing a nurse's uniform.
None of this frightened me.
In fact, I found it all thrilling.
But this night, as I entered the doctor's room and paused to start talking to the group about the asylum's long history, I felt two strong hands grab my shoulders and push me against the wall.
Shocked, I watched the others gasp in fright.
They'd all seen my assault, too.
There was no-one standing close enough to touch me – I knew it was a ghost!
The more I thought about it, the more certain I became that it was the former doctor who had worked here.
Perhaps he was telling me to stay away?
As a professional ghost-hunter, I don't scare easily, but this angry doctor certainly gave me the creeps!

The last rays of sunlight trickled down into the prison as I finished up a tour around the Old Geelong Jail.
On my way out, I went around to make sure everything was locked.
My last stop was the morgue.
Pushing the heavy door closed, I felt a little tug on my hair.
Startled, I turned around and felt an ice-cold breeze whoosh past my face.
Another cheeky ghost, I thought with a smile.
As a tour guide and historian, I'd seen my fair share of creepy spirits wandering around.
These days, they didn't faze me and I thought of them as a bunch of playful little kids!
But this particular spirit caught my curiosity.
Every time I'd enter, he'd do something to grab my attention.
The ghost told me his name was Edward.
Looking through historical records, I discovered that Edward had been an inmate decades ago. He was found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to five years.
Although he didn't die at the prison, somehow, his ghost found its way back here.
As I took more groups through the morgue for our nightly ghost tours, I noticed Edward being a bit audacious with women, tapping them on the backside or pulling their hair.
On one tour, Edward started to make a fuss.
For five days straight one of the people on our tours would walk into the morgue, fainting as soon as they walked past the doorway.
On the sixth day, my colleague, Sam, was taking a tour group around the prison.
When they reached the morgue, a voice came through the Spirit Box.
"Where's Deb?" it asked.
"Who's Deb?" asked one of the tour patrons.
"My boss!" he replied, shocked.
Edward had been unhappy that I'd been neglecting him.
Once I went and visited Edward in the morgue, the fainting stopped and the tours continued without a hitch.
I'm flattered Edward has a crush on me, but I won't be looking for a ghostly romance any time soon.

This pushed our team out of home investigations entirely and into investigating/researching historical buildings. It's a much healthier approach with a searchable historical background. Additionally it reflected in our professionalism when we revealed to the client and/or performed charity presentations to help historical societies in need of money.
Ah yes, hidden agendas and lies, that which all healthy relationships are based on lol. Paranormal sorts try to waste my time in a similar fashion, presenting themselves as truth seekers when really they're just seeking validation of some personal theory (and more than willing to construe anything they're presented with as such).
