It all started when I was 5. We had just moved, we were living in an apartment before, but found a good deal on a old house and bought it.
The first few days felt normal, pleasant. We had been unpacking all week and needed a break. So mom told me to get the ice cream out of the Basement freezer, I smiled and ran to get it shouting happily (well, I was only five). I flew down the stairs and suddenly stopped on the bottom step. It was ice cold, dark and there was a pressure in the atmosphere that I couldn't explain.
I bolted to the freezer and grabbed the ice cream, ran back up stairs and told my mom about it. "Mommy mommy! There's something downstairs!"
"I'm sure It's just a mouse, Tallis. It is an old house after all"
"No! It's not a mouse!"
I grabbed her arm and lead her downstairs. It was gone! No coldness, no darkness, or pressure. She pulled out of my grip and scooped me up, carrying me back up the stairs. Introduction
As we left I saw it. A dark shadow flitting around the corner. I tried to brush it off as my imagination, but it got worse.
A couple years later I had turned 7 and started seeing them all the time. I would refuse point blank to go into the basement, because when I did the things would follow me taunting and scarring me.
I had nightmares about the things in the basement as well until we moved out a couple months before my 13th birthday.
After we moved I started feeling and hearing things others couldn't, getting Deja vu left and right, started seeing little white lights out of the corner of my eye, felt sick around happy bouncy people and wild animals would start coming really close to me.
It's been 2 years sense then and we've moved again, but I've started seeing and feeling the shadows on top of everything else. I've also started having nightmares almost every night again.
What should I do?! I'm really confused about all of this. I would love some help understanding what my powers are and why the shadows are taunting me again. If you have any ideas please feel free to share them.
