My Aunt's House

In October of 2006, I was visiting my aunt's house in central New York (hi aunt R!!).
Many of the women in my family are sensitive to the paranormal and we have all had our own experiences with the supernatural. I want to share with you one that my aunt and I shared during my visit to her house.

I was given a room in the front of the house for the duration of my stay and the rest of the rooms were more towards the back of the house. One night at about 4:30 in the morning I woke suddenly and had to go to the bathroom very badly. So I got up and walked to the bathroom which is directly across the hall from my aunt's bedroom. While I was in the bathroom I heard what sounded like my aunt laughing in her bedroom. I ignored this and began to walk back to the front room and I heard the laughter again, but still continued walking to my room and went back to sleep.

The next day I asked my aunt why she was laughing at 4:30 in the morning and she said she was asleep and she didn't know what I was talking about.
Later that same day my aunt pulled me aside and told me that that night she had felt the presence of a child entering her room from the hall. She told me that it did not feel like a friendly child. She turned to face the door and went back to sleep. When she was falling asleep she felt a hard jab in her side as if a tiny finger had poked her. At this, she became annoyed and turned on her bedroom light and slept with it on for the rest of the night.

Seems to me an unruly child was making mischief that night. The next night I woke again at 4:30 but chose to stay in bed this time!

One other occurrence happened in the front room that I was staying in. I was trying to fall asleep one night and I was so wide awake and I just could not settle down. I never slept without a dim light on so I could clearly see my surroundings and I started to notice the shape of a young girl forming in my room. Over the period of a few minutes I could see her more and more clearly. She looked to be about 10 to 12 years old and had shoulder length dark hair. I was a little shaken by the apparition and spent that night in my cousins room sleeping on her floor.
There also has been times when I got an uneasy feeling while I was in the basement by myself and often was chased up the basement stairs by an angry spirit. I have also heard footsteps in the house while no one else was home. By the end of my visit I had grown pretty well accustomed to the odd goings-on at my aunts house and hope one day to visit again, but this time only for the day!
