Greetings ATS. First, a disclaimer: I don't have any proof to validate the stories I am about to tell you other than my word. I can only relay my
experiences and tell you a little about my background in hopes you won't think I'm off my rocker.
I haven't had dozens of paranormal experiences in my life. I haven't been abducted by aliens. I never had stories to tell around the campfire...but
I sure do now.
I moved into a house last December 2009. My roommate has lived in the house her entire life off and on. The house was built by her grandparents in the
1920's. She and her sister both have had experiences in the house. She doesn't talk about it much because hello! it can make you sound crazy
rambling about ghosts and such. In fact, she never told me about her experiences before I moved in. Convenient, huh?
At least 2 people have died in the house. Her great grandmother and her grandfather. Some lumber used in the house was salvaged from a home that
burned down. I don't know the details of the fire whatsoever or if anyone really does.
So, I moved in. My room is upstairs, hers is down. Now I know why...because sh*t goes down upstairs.
I awoke from a dead sleep in the middle of the night around 3am which I almost never do. I sleep like a rock. I immediately got the heebie jeebies. I
lay still and listened. I heard a creaking on the stairs and I was thinking "Oh great, someone is in here and I'm going to die now."
I froze and listened. My cat, who sleeps on the bed with me at my feet, jumped up, and ran up behind my head. I was petrified. I just laid there
still...listening. I eventually fell back to sleep. No one can get in my home without making A LOT of noise. They would have to crash down the door or
break a window. So, I knew no one was really there.
The fact that the cat responded to the incident freaked me out a little. Since I had been asleep...I was still groggy and fell back to sleep rather
quickly. Everything was normal the next morning.
Now this one, I admit, just sounds crazy...like I've seen The Exorcist one too many times...you don't know me, but I'm not a liar and I don't make
It was pretty late...or early depending upon how you look at it. I was around 2:30am and I was reading before going to sleep. I had on my lamp, book
in hand, and the cat was asleep in his spot.
All of a sudden the bed shook. It wasn't like the entire thing shook...the only thing I can liken it to is when you have an animal on the bed and
they scratch and it shakes the bed. It felt like that and lasted about that long. Again, the cat was asleep...until this happened.
He jumped up and got down off the bed. He paced the room a couple of times staring and meowing at the ceiling. I didn't see anything. He jumped up on
the desk to get closer and even put his front paws on the wall a couple of times. After about 20 minutes, he settled back down and went back to sleep.
I, too, went to sleep.
Third Time's the Charm
The very next night...a bit earlier this time...around 11:30pm, I was reading in bed again. The cat was sleeping in his spot. It was the same
scenario...just earlier. Again, the bed shook just like the night before. The cat looked up from his spot. The pupils in his eyes got large and he
looked around a minute, and then laid his head down and went right back to sleep.
...as in last night...I had been trying to go to sleep for a while after reading for a bit. The cat was...I dunno. He doesn't like his spot as well
in the summer. I was laying on my left side facing the wall. I was almost asleep when I felt someone there behind me. Then I felt an arm beneath my
shoulder. I never felt the hand slide in, it was just suddenly there. Then a gentle touch on my right side like where you might tickle someone in the
