Sometimes, around 1:30-3:30AM (EST) I will hear noises in my home such as a knock.
Single sounds aren't usually an indication. Its when they come in three's that catch your attention. Three knocks or raps. Its hard for something to
fall or a gas can to expand and make three sounds back to back.
Last night I was lying in bed, and heard a metallic bang coming from a room I have various objects stored in, and this was immediately after
being awakened from a nightmare of something chasing me.
One noise? Thats it? Hmmm...
All homes make "a" noise.
I was up late at my brothers house one night watching TV. He has a wall of windows out back so you can see the backyard clearly. There are street
lights nearby so its always illuminated. He has a dog and it was curled up at my feet on the couch.
I heard three distinct rap rap rap noises on the window by the door. The dog growled a low growl and kept it up. I was looking right at the spot the
knocking came from and no one was there. No one could have slipped in and out to do that, the patio outside the window is big and there is no place to
hide. There are no curtains, all I had to do was shift my gaze from the TV to the window.
The family was gone so it wash't anyone in or around the house. When someone knocks on the door or rings the door bell the dog goes off like an
alarm. He just growled that low growl, like he knew what it was but didn't want to do anything but alert me to something... weird.
So I got up and went to the door and opened it and walked out back and the dog followed. They have a lawn out around the side of the house and locked
gates. Nobody was there.
I was standing there quietly listening for any tell tales when the dog began barking inside the house. This time it was the alarm bark like somebody
is at the front door. Oh, I said to myself. Maybe some visitor is at the front door now and doesn't know the family is gone or...?
It is about 3 am and I walk back to the rear entrance and stare in the house. The dog is sitting in the middle of the living room barking... at the
I stop and stare. He is alert and he is sitting in the center of the room and he is barking at the ceiling. I call his name but he continues barking
at nothing. I walk in and past him to the front door, open it and no one is there. The dog doesn't come to the door (which is unusual in itself). I
come back to the living room and the dog is quiet now and approaches me with head down tail wagging like, its okay now. I lock up the house and turn
the lights off and lie back down on the couch. But I don't sleep. There is this creepy feeling about the place. Nothing else happens and I fall
Their house has this history. They deny it but have had a group do a walk thru and they ended it because stuff was happening. The alarm goes off and
auto calls the police so often they have been fined. There are orbs in photos they take. Every family member has had some kind of weird experience
that they dismiss. The walls are rotten inside with mold, the lights flicker, the son has bad dreams. Etc,etc.
Point being that experiences need to have several elements to begin to count for something when you add it all up. There needs to be a history,
multiple experiences, shared experience. Some kind of outside corroboration, Get the point?
And after all that their "ghost" or whatever it is, has never harmed anyone or caused real serious problems with their house. So what do you
attribute that or any experience like it? Hardly demonic.
Mischevious maybe, or a joker, I dunno.
