Hi guys, thought I'd share this little story with you as it's quite interesting, and very scary.
OK, so my Nan and Grandad are currently on holiday for 2 weeks and I have been asked to house-sit for them while they're away as they have a few pets
they want me to look after (turtles, fish etc).
The house is very old and is basically in the middle of nowhere with no other house around for miles - just fields and forests etc.
A couple of years ago I remember listening in on a conversation between my Grandad and my Dad - my Grandad was telling my dad how a few nights ago he
had woken up in his bed at around 12am and saw a elderly couple sitting on the bottom of his bed, dressed in old Victorian styled clothing (or at
least that's how he described them).
I've never talked to, or questioned my Grandad about what I heard him say to my dad, but as I've been told to sleep in the same room as this
sighting apparently happened due to it being the nicest room with the nicest bed (yes...they washed the covers before they left
) , I've been
thinking more about it.
Anyways - I started house-siting for them 11 days ago, and although its quite eerie at night (huge field behind the house - no other houses in sight
etc) nothing much has really happened - until this morning, that is.
Last night I went to bed as normal (around 11ish) and got to sleep quite quickly. I was quite tired and as a result I forgot to take my contact lenses
I slept soundly for most of the night, until I was woken by something at around 4am. I woke up to a weird sound - as if somebody was breathing in my
Because I slept in my contacts my vision was somewhat blurry when I woke up. I opened my eyes to see what the sound could have been, and as soon as my
eyes opened, I saw dark object cross the path of my vision. I blinked and moved my eyes about for a couple seconds to get by eyesight back to normal
but by the time I could see properly, the object had disappeared. It was going around my head for a while trying to figure out what it could have
been, but I put it down to my eyes being a little groggy due to the contacts. I closed my eyes again to go back to sleep.
Soon after I shut my eyes to go back to sleep, I was brought wide awake again as I heard a kind of moaning sound coming from the other side of the
room - very shortly followed by a huge "HA" only inches away from my ear (or so it sounded).
This really shook me up and I ended up not going back to sleep and got up and walked out of the room. Being the only person in the house house, I had
a sense of vulnerability come over me - especially when I realised I've still got 4 nights to go.
I was just wondering what your input was on this, and whether any of you guys have had anything like this happen to you.
I'm pretty sure it wasn't a dream as I got up after hearing the noise and didn't go back to sleep - but all suggestions are welcome.
Thanks for listening, and wish me luck for the next few nights.
