the Man In Our House
ever scince i can remember i have been having experiences and i always get this 'feeling' when theres a 'spirit' or something in the room. i have many more than this, some of them may not be so scary, but they are when you where little. sorry if this turns out to be pretty long! almost everytime we are watching TV we always see someone - or something - walk accross our hallway from room to room and we see some kind of black reflection on the mirror at the end of the hall. we dont think its something we have to worry about its just something that happens to be there. i have had experiences at night too. one night i was just laying in bed and all of a sudden from the back of my door came some kind of floating mist type thing. i dont know how to explain it. being so little i was scared so i immediatly put my head under my covers, and told myself that i was just seeing things because i was tired. so when i pulled them back off, there was the thing again still comming closer and closer to my bed. i just layed there staring at the thing and then all of a sudden... it just slowly vanished away. it didn't seem harmful, but it did scare me for being so little. the next time it was around 2 in the morning and i had to go to the bathroom. i didn't feel tired at all and it was if i felt like i was ready to go for the day, but anyways, i got up, went and when i came back, there was a clearly distinct man sitting on a chair in my room looking at me with kind of a 'creepy' smile on his face. he looked as if he where a farmer, you know, overalls and some type of hat. i knew i wasn't imagining things because remeber - i wasn't tired what so ever. then he seemed to have been moving closer and by that point his smile kept gettiing more and more snarled so i ran into my moms room and cried. being a mom she told me that i was imagining things. but i knew i wasn't. i can't explain it to this day. i still feel those presences every once in a while while im laying in bed in the middle of the night. i dont bother to open my eyes because i dont know what i'll see. my sister also has presences. she said that when she was little she would always wake up and see a man sitting on the top of her dresser looking down at her. she didn't feel scared. she said she actually felt safe. she also said that he was there almost every night that it just became one of those 'things' that you dont notice anymore. hes been gone ever scince they re-did her room. but she said she will never forget him. there is also something about our basement. ever scince i was little i just can't go down there alone. its like somethings down there that i can't see. and whenever im down there i feel like somethings watching me. i dont know if its something about our house that makes us have things experiences or the previous owner because she was somewhat --- different. she would set boobie traps around the house - and we are still finding them like in the ceiling and stuff after about 17 years. she had the doornobs turned around so you could lock somebody in the room from the hallway. she was also somewhat nocturnal(sp?) she would stay up at night at beam a light through the front window to watch the neighbors at night. maybe these experiences have something to do with the houses past. we will never know.
