    A few years ago I had just moved into a new house. I didn't like the bathroom because it only had a tub and no shower and there was a window right next to the tub. I wasn't used to having a window in the bathroom. The curtains were also kind of see through over the window which...

    Every Night.

    My bedroom is in the basement, and so the windows are about level with the ground. Every single night, I hear something outside. Something scratching, digging, and playing in the rocks outside my window. It scares the hell out of me. I'm already very fearful as it is, and these...
