Alright, I'm back! It's been a while since I've been back to ATS, I'm glad I'm back its been too long.
Anyways, I've got more to contribute to this thread on some of the more recent experiences I've had in the house.
It's been a while so this may be rather lengthy..
First off, other people have experienced "weird things" in my house now which wasn't the case before. I'll get into that later in my post, I want
to keep things in the order that they've happened.
All activity within the basement has ceased and has been extremely calm. Which is good and all, only thing is it seems as if the "weirdness" has
just moved around the house. Earlier in this thread I posted a photo of the stairway I believe, so that's where I'm going to shift my focus. A few
months back ( in August ) I hired a new guy at my work and we shared a lot of common interests, he didn't have a vehicle so I ultimately ended up
giving him a ride home from work everyday.. We started hanging out more at my house, playing video games, going fishing or what have you. We were
always doing something because neither one of us could wait to be off work.... I had invited him over one weekend because I was cooking food and
having some beers so I figured I'd forward the invite to him. He came over and brought his son with him which at the time Carter (his son) was
We had a few beers and some really good food, I turned on my PlayStation so Carter could play because we could tell he wasn't having near as much fun
as we were.. He played for a little while and ended up getting side tracked and just went wondering around the house... Carter later came to us and
said "who is up stairs?" I replied "no one" he said he thought he heard somebody up there. I passed it off... I'd been drinking a little bit and
I know I didn't hear anything..
Later in the evening, after we got done eating dinner my buddy and his son headed home... It wasn't until then when I was alone in there that I
thought I heard something. I could have sworn I heard somebody either walking up, or down the stairs. My stairs are carpet but the original stairs are
hard wood, which is whats under the carpet. The only way I was able to distinguish that they were footsteps is because certain stairs creek when
pressure is applied to them (foot steps). I heard three of my stairs creek and that really kind of freaked me out, for a moment I really thought their
was someone walking down, or up my stairs. Now, these "foot steps" have been rather residual, I hear them almost every night. So it's really
something that doesn't bother me anymore.
Their is a center wall that divides my living room from the stairway, so no matter where you are sitting on my couch you can only see maybe the first
two steps of the stairs. So their is no type of visual aspect to the occurrences..
(if anybody would like, I can take a picture that way you can see how the angles are)
So, that was the first "new" experience. I've got one more though, one that I didn't experience..
About a month later I had a big cookout, I mean big. I flew one of my life long friends into town from Texas. I had maybe 35-40 people show up (which
was extremely overwhelming) Everybody had a great time it was a lot of fun. By the time everybody was leaving I could hardly stand, I threw my buddy a
blanket and pillow so he could go to sleep (he was staying with me for 3 days)
I woke up the next morning and my buddy asked me if I was sleepwalking, I said more than likely not. For one, I've never been known to sleep walk,
and two, I could hardly stand
He said he thought heard me walking around upstairs as well as up and down the stairs. He wasn't aware of the "foot steps" I'd been hearing. He
did know about the other experiences I've had in the house though. That was that for the weekend. the next day I took him back to the airport and we
went on our separate ways.. My buddy called me the next day after he had already been home and he told me that he had set a recorder on his phone the
night after he thought he heard me walking around in the middle of night. He told me that he was listening to it and at some point in the middle of
the night he told me he could hear someone walking down the stairs and approach him as he was sleeping. He also stated that he could hear someone
humming/moaning and possibly breathing into the recorder... I'd like to believe it and I'm definitely not disowning his claim, but I never heard the
recording, and rather ironically the iPhone he used to record it had allegedly broke..
What do you think?
This is all I'll be posting for now, I've got some stuff to get done today.. I'll be back and it won't be months later
