Little Girl Crying

September 2002

We moved into this apartment a few months before our second child was born and this is when it started happening.

It was early enough in the morning that it was still dark, we were in the habit of leaving the bathroom light on in case our four year old had to get up in the middle of the night. My fiance would leave to work early enough that it was still dark, on this particular morning I stayed awake in bed debating if I should start my day yet. Suddenly I heard a child crying softly whom I assumed to be my four year old daughter so I called out to her. She had fallen asleep in the living room the night before she always refused to sleep in her room. I remember calling her to come and lay down with me but she would not respond, I could only hear the whimpering.

I was about to get out of bed when I heard the sound of little footsteps coming down the hallway towards my room. When I looked up I saw "her" quickly go into the bathroom (which was directly across from my bedroom) and shut the door. Figuring that she just needed the restroom I left here alone for a few minutes and called out again. When she didn't reply I sat up on the bed to see "her" standing at the bathroom door halfway open staring at me and closed the door. I thought that maybe she hadn't made it to the bathroom and had an accident so I went into the bathroom to find that it was empty. I quickly went to the living room and she was fast asleep where she had been all night.

I was much too scared to fall back asleep so I went and lay next to her for the rest of the morning. When she woke up I asked her if she had gotten up and gone to the bathroom, she said "no" and I left it at that wondering if my mind was playing tricks on me.

This little girl that I saw resembled my daughter enough for me to think it was her. She had the same long hair even similar height, it was an experience I will never forget.

On another occasion my daughter had been playing in her room while the rest of us were watching TV in the living room and all of a sudden she yelled out "DAD!" in a terrified voice. The next second she was running into the living room and jumped onto the couch beside me. She was so scared and was "never gonna go to her room again". So I asked her what she saw and she kept saying that she saw a head looking at her when she was jumping on her bed so I told her it was probably just her shadow and then took her into the room so she can show me where she saw this head.

So she said she was jumping on her bed and she saw a head looking at her from the doorway and I said well who was it and what did it look like? and I got goose bumps all over my body when she said "it was a little girl just like me".

That wasn't even the end of all the strange things that happened in that apartment but I never found out why.

Little things like we would leave the TV on in the living room and in the morning it would be on the prayer channel or every time I would walk by the kids bedroom (which we always had the door closed to) it would bang like if someone was pushing it from the other end.

In their bedroom the kids had a light that would turn while on and not everyday but quite often it would turn on its own without any sort of wind or air conditioning at all, without even being plugged in.

Although we are no longer there I would like to find out if it is still happening to whoever lives there now and why.
