This happened last December at my parents house. It isn’t particularly old but is quite big.
So anyway I was coming back from a friend’s house about 2 nights before Christmas Eve. I got home quite late my parents were already in bed. I was about to go into the part of the house I was staying the night.
The entrance to this room was directly opposite the living room, which was pitch black, because my parents were asleep. However because of the light from the dining room spilling into an area of the lounge, you could just see a large wooden cupboard standing at the end on the far wall, with a vague splash of light on the polished doors.
As I walked into dining room to turn off the lights, I glanced into the lounge and looked in the direction of the aforementioned cupboard. Oddly enough, the split second before I saw something, I felt as if something odd was about to happen.
As I looked, what I took to be a splash of reflected light upon the surface of the cupboard, slid up the front of the cupboard, and literally flew sideways into the depths of the lounge and out of my sight.
The physical sensations I experienced when seeing this? I have been frightened before, I have been in dangerous situations, I have even scared myself… This was different…when I saw this manifestation, instantly every SINGLE cell in my body freaked out SIMULTANEOUSLY. I cannot emphasize how horrible that feels – you have absolutely no control over it, maybe that’s the frightening part. My body knew instinctively (even if I did not) that it was in the presence of something not of this earth.
I slammed the door of my room shot pretty damn quick as you can imagine, although I have no idea what protection a shut door would have against something like that. I calmed down pretty quickly, considering what had just happened (and I am only now considering the ‘oddness’ of THAT, actually) and then looking at the experience objectively. Funnily enough, even 5 minutes after it had happened, I was thinking “did I really just see that? Was that real?”
I have never seen anything since, nor do I expect to. The sighting was an accident – someone, or something, being caught unawares, the hidden spirit in the house revealing itself (the whole family have had experiences here, going back decades.)
Several years ago I lived in an apartment off state and pierce park in Garden City, Idaho that gave me the creeps over time. It was a fairly new development though I am not exactly sure how old it couldn’t have been build earlier than the mid 90’s. The place didn’t look scary by any means it was a well lit, clean apartment that seemed like it had few residents under its belt. It started with me feeling kind of uncomfortable from time to time when I was home alone. That feeling of being watched by something, you know? for months I got that feeling when I was alone. Eventually my roommate and I started sleeping with each other (bad move). a few weeks later some strange things started to happen. mind you she had recently divorced and was in a weird transitional phase which I connect to all of this for some reason. Also, she was a caretaker for dying old people which I also kind of connect this to. Anyway, after a night together she had to go to work that morning. It must have been a couple hours after she had left but I was woken up by one of the bathroom doors connected to the bedroom slam closed. I called for her but got no answer. I didn’t think anyone had entered because of how noisy the front door was I would have heard her enter. Seconds later I could hear heavy dragging sounds almost like like stomping feet but a heavier slow stride for about a minute. Then for about 45 minutes in 30 second to 2 minute intervals I would hear this loud sound like someone was taking a marble and throwing it at the bathroom door as hard as they could. I was completely floored. Scared and couldn’t bring myself to move. I laid there until she came home but made no mention of the incident. It happened one more than 10 occasions sometimes not as long. There was one particular weekend I had the place to myself while she was out of town and I heard a bunch of fast paced whispering really close to me that I couldn’t understand. Then out of nowhere I heard a very loud whisper right next to my ear say “hey” in a very intense voice. Once again, I didn’t know what to do and was frozen. I’m so glad I don’t live there anymore.
