The Unknown Ghost

My name is Samantha, I am 13 years old and I definitely believe in ghosts. I have experienced some crazy encounters with them. I live in Akron, Ohio; which is in the United States. My house was built in the late 50’s. I think that my room is haunted.

I have heard the usual footsteps and heard the doors opening and closing. The haunting started off like that. It was last summer, around 2 a.m., I was on my computer because I couldn’t fall asleep, I heard two little kids giggling, and I heard a man whistling, in our hallway. I froze, I tried not to be scared because I know ghosts feed off fear, but it was so hard not to be scared. The kids were running around, giggling, and opening and slamming doors. I was just sitting there on my bed, and my door was slowly opening, and there was absolutely nothing there. I will admit I got a little scared. Nothing major happened after that.

This year more and more things started to happen. Certain objects that I was attached to disappeared and reappeared. For example: I had a diamond cross necklace that I loved, I wore it every day. It just disappeared, and I haven’t seen it since. Our spare car key just disappeared, and we have not been able to find it. I am not sure where the stuff goes.

A couple months ago I have had this horrible stench in my room. It smells like BO and almost like rotten eggs or flesh. I am not sure where the stench is coming from. I have heard someone call my name, heard growls as I walk in my room, and sometimes my room will feel like it dropped 50 degrees. Sometimes my room will feel like an oven, it will be so hot you can’t even breathe.

For the past three to four weeks my printer that I have in my room will suddenly go off. This usually happens around 3 o’clock in the morning. I would get up and unplug it, and it would stop. It doesn’t have a timer on it, so I am not sure why it just goes off. The past couple weeks, my printer will go off, and print blank pages, I will unplug it, and it will still print. I have no explanation for that. When my printer goes off, my dog will start to throw up everywhere. When my printer finally stops, my dog will stop throwing up, and he will go back to bed, like nothing ever happened.

I definitely think there is something in my room, but I don’t know what it is. If anyone knows can you please help me?
