BEING ALONE DOESN'T MEAN SOMEONE ISN'T THERE........
Iím not the sort of person strange things happen
to. Iím an observer. Iím the one that the eerie
stories are relayed to, but when I was around
twelve years of age I believe I had an encounter
with an entity. I wasnít sure then, but now Iím
certain that I did.
Iíve grown since then, but the years still
havenít erased what happened.
It was Sunday
morning and I was in the bathroom getting read for
church, running late as usual I grabbed what I
needed and headed into my room (it was the last
one down the hall from the living room) and closed
the door. As I stood in front of the mirror
brushing my hair I heard a sudden bang. It was a
like a hammer slamming through a wooden wall. I
jerked open the bedroom door and hurried down the
hall. I remember that at first I thought it might
have been our cat. Buddy was a climber and would
knock things on the floor from time to time, but a
broken vase and the sound Iíd heard were two
totally different things. Instead of something
broken on the ground, I was met with a wide open
basement door. There was a security chain that
fastened to lock it; it was ripped from the door
and half-way across the room. The bolt was used to
hold the locking piece to the door was also
I was the only person in the house at the time
this occurred and can think of no reason for the
door to so violently open in the way it did. The
wind was not blowing, I WAS alone, and a cat
certainly cannot open a door. Soon after I passed
on my experience to my mother, she told me that
the house had been owned pervious to us. A fire
had destroyed the basement and much of the
upstairs, killing an older man that had used the
basement as his work shop.
To my knowledge nothing
else has happened in that house, I no longer live
there but visit my grandparents who still do.
There are still shivers that goose-step on my
spine when I go into that house, but the best I
can do is ignore it.
