We have been in our house for 5 years now. It was built sometime in the 1920s. A few things have happened in the past that we have ignored. But this happened for the second time last night... There is an island in the kitchen and I had a half of a head of lettuce in a ziplock bag sitting in the center of the island. Kids were in bed, and hubby and myself were 2 rooms over. I heard something fall and when we went to investigate the lettuce was on the floor. We went upstairs for bed and the whole house just felt unusually dark and scary. I got up at 3 AM to use the restroom and I was terrified walking down the hallway. It just felt like something was near me and it wasn't something nice. The first time this happened, it was a kitchen knife that fell off the island.
Ever since we have moved into this house, I have a really hard time with doing something as simple as going downstairs in the middle of the night. Especially between 3 and 6 AM, it's a whole other atmosphere downstairs. I have felt a "blackness" standing outside my door. The "blackness" is also in my basement. There is a canning cellar there and I can't even bring myself to open it. I know there is nothing in there, but even being near the cellar door makes me uneasy. Even fully lit, I will not go into the basement at night by myself.
The other thing that happened is last year, my youngest (6 at the time) daughter woke up in the middle of the night and came into my room. Her room is right next to ours at the end of the hallway. The bathroom is about 10 feet straight down the hall. When she got in the room, she asked me who the people were sitting on the bench at the end of the hallway. Of course, my husband and I both got up, but found nothing. She has never been a child to make something up.
