I think I'm just going to tell you all about individual experiences since there's no way I'll keep the timeline straight. I'm going to try to keep
things in general order, since the activity would tend to escalate as time went on. There were also times when everything was quiet for weeks at a
So here we go...
It was probably several weeks before I couldn't deny any longer that we had a guest or guests in the house. I called up the lady I rented the house
from and asked her about it. She said that her family hadn't noticed anything, but that people who had stayed with them had heard footsteps and etc...
My landlords were a young couple with two little kids. They were also extremely committed Christians who attended church at least once a week. They
had a TV but no cable. They only watched family-type VHS movies. As for myself, I was raised in that sort of household. I was (and am) the black sheep
of the family. I'm not an atheist or an agnostic. I believe in a higher power but I'm not sure we can definitively say who or what "God" is. The
universe is far too complex for us to say, but I believe that there will be a consciousness after this one.
Okay so here we go...lol
My GF was deaf, so once she took off her cochlear implant stuff she was gone for the night. I listened for the baby monitor (he was in the bedroom on
the other side of the shared bathroom). Daughter was in basement bedroom.
The wall knocking would usually start around 11-11:30 pm. Every 10-30 seconds I would hear a single knock. It was just like a single door knock with
the knuckles. From the sound, I could tell it was 6-7 feet up off the floor.
I'd hear a knock on our bedroom wall, then a knock in the living room - another part of the living room - a couple in the dining room - another one in
a different spot in the bedroom. This usually lasted five or ten minutes. I did not hear any footsteps between the knocks. The only carpet in the
house was in the baby's room.
It didn't happen every night, but sometimes it did happen two nights in a row. When the knocking spells occurred, they would last maybe a few
OH! I just remembered the moment I realized there was something spooky going on.
I had moved my computer desk from the basement to the kitchen. The kitchen was the entire width of the house, with a galley kitchen at one end and a
breakfast/sitting room at the other. The sitting area had a large picture window looking at the street running alongside the house. My computer desk
was facing the same wall the back door was on, the picture window to my left. There was a loveseat under the picture window.
One morning I got up from my desk and turned toward the kitchen area. The picture window and loveseat were behind me. As I took a step away from the
desk, I heard a very distinct, whispered "Hey!" behind me. Of course I turned around to see who was there, knowing I was alone. Nobody there.
It wasn't in my head. It was a short, sharp, understandable word spoken in a loud whisper.
I only heard a voice one other time. It was also in the same area. The whole family was in the sitting area of the kitchen. I was at the desk,
swiveling back and forth to talk to everyone. My GF was at the far end of the loveseat from me. My stepdaughter was on the loveseat near me.
My SD had asked me about the difference between a Christian and a Jew. I was swiveled around talking to her about it when we BOTH heard someone
whisper "Shhh!" between us. Our heads were about three feet apart.
