My story occurred about 25 years ago when my mom,
Neala, was 18, and her brother, Dale was 22 years
old. Their mother left them when they were little
so she will not be in this story.
Late one night the three of them were fast asleep
when voices and music woke Calvin. He wondered
which one of his children was having a party at
the house so late at night. He decided to get up
and check and to ask them to keep the noise down
a little so that he could go back to sleep.
He put on his white terry cloth robe and began
walking down the dark hallway towards the living
room. He began to wonder why the whole house was
so dark if there was a party going on, but he
still heard the voices and music so he continued
on his way toward the sounds.
When he reached the living room he flicked on the
lights. The lights flashed on and all the sounds
stopped. Calvin thought Dale or Neala must be
playing a joke on him so he went to see which one
was not in their bed.
He turned the lights off and walked back toward
the bedrooms. He reached Dale's room and found
him fast asleep so he continued on to Neala's
room where he found her sound asleep too.
He scratched his head and thought to himself that
he must have been dreaming. He listened intently,
but heard no voices, music or any other sounds.
He returned to his bed and looked at his clock to
see how much time he had left until his alarm
would wake him. It was 1:00 am. He had 5 hours
left until his alarm would start blaring.
His head had just sunk into his goose down pillow
when he started hearing the sounds of a party
again. He thought to himself, "what the heck is
He got up again, but this time he was on a
mission to find out who the prankster is that's
keeping him awake.
He walked stealthily down the
hall and peered into the darkness with his
bloodshot eyes trying to distinguish the shapes
in the room. He saw a few shadowy figures and
thought he had caught the prankster so he turned
on the lights. Once again the sounds stopped and
nothing remained where the shadowy figures had
been. He rubbed his eyes and looked again. Still
He turned the lights off and checked on Dale and
Neala again. They were still asleep in their
beds. He didn't know what else to do so he went
back to bed.
These events were repeated 2 more
times, then Calvin finally chose to ignore the
sounds and try to sleep. He only had a couple of
hours of snooze time left.
When morning came he asked Dale and Neala if they
had heard anything during the night. Neala, being
a very deep sleeper, said she didn't hear a
thing. Dale, on the other hand, said he heard
party sounds and thought it was Neala and her
friends. Their dad told them what he had been
through that night. They all felt a bit uneasy
about it, figuring it had to be ghosts.
That was the end of "The Party". There were no
more unexplained parties in their house, but they
did experience some other odd occurrences in
their home that could not be logically explained.
