Deep Moaning In The Stairwell

 

About 2 or 3 weeks ago I was leaving my grandmother's house. She lives in an apartment complex designated for veterans and their wives, as well as people with fixed income, ie pensions. My boyfriend was waiting for me outside so, rather than taking the elevator which might I add was very slow, I took a stairwell that I always use to come and go. Not once has this stairwell door ever made any other sounds other than clicking shut.

Well...I opened the door and was about to make my way down the stairs, when the door made the most awful sound of some kind of demonic moan as it closed. I stood in front of it, frozen in shock rather than fright until it stopped. It was a chilling sound and I didn't feel scared or anything, but I was uncomfortable enough to run out of there fast. The sound and scenario reminded me of that one stairwell scene from The Grudge (Ringu). Since it happened and like I said, before as well... The door has never made that kind of noise.

That's not the only incident that has occurred in my grandmother's apartment. I was sleeping over about a month ago (my cousin lives with my grandmother). My cousin had the bed and I had the floor. I couldn't sleep because I was paranoid a spider would come out from under the bed and crawl on me. I started to get itchy thinking about it, so I got up and used the bathroom. When I came back, I brushed my sleeping area off and lay down. As soon as I got a comfortable position, I heard a whispered voice that sounded as clear as day like my mother say, "Hello" right next to my ear. I lay there for a couple of seconds not knowing what to do, should I answer?... Should I not?...

Then I remember from stories and articles I've read that ghosts or evil spirits can disguise themselves or their voices as the people you love, so when you respond it invites them to harm you. I didn't answer, but instead lay there silent until I fell asleep. I asked my cousin the next morning if she had maybe been awake and said something to me but she told me no, and besides it didn't even sound like her. It sounded like my mother.

Later that night something else pretty bizarre occurred, but I'll leave that until my next story. Thank you for reading, input would be appreciated.

The Grudge and Ringu are two different movies.
I find it interesting that you heard a demonic groan, but then a clear voice later on. Would it be the same entity? Can Demons do that?

Rusty hinges I would say for this stairwell, but hey who knows only you can figure this out xxibonihs, a bit more detective work seems necessary regarding this.
It is true that evil spirits can disguise there voice to sound like loved ones, but in this instance I would say you would have experienced a lot more negative events if this was the case. Look into house and land history also ask your grandmother/neighbours for real answers that will no doubt shed some light on what you experienced. Who knows maybe it was a spider saying hello?lol

(Javelina yes I think it is about time we photoshopped a fourth leg in there for you bluey lmao! 😁)

xxibonihs,

Just out of curiosity, is this a heavy steel door, or a wrought iron gate? Is it a metal door?

Everyone,

Thank you for your interesting advice on how to make pork roast. I might try it myself:D

Lou,

I realize that you want me to realize that my stories do not sound right and may have a couple of holes. Fact is, you would never catch someone who knows me asking me to tell them a joke. I'm really bad at putting all the facts together and telling a proper story. I always forget one thing or the other. I'm sorry that I can't make you understand my experiences like I experienced them.

When I wrote them, I didn't expect anyone to believe them. It only matters to me, that I know what I experienced is true no matter how ridiculous it sounds hence your comment about my "Moaning Stairwell". You are right, it could have been a little rusty, maybe it needed some oil. Though in my grandmothers apartment complex, there's only one guy who fixes the building up or who calls companies to do the fixing. I came early in the morning that day, left during the middle of the day (when the door moaned) and came back at the end of the day. The door in the morning and at night, made no such noise which is why I wrote this "odd" story about it.

I didn't mention these facts earlier because like I said, I'm bad at story telling and I do leave out a lot of information sometimes when I don't find it absolutely necessary.

Papa Thorn,

I will email you, since I am not able to get on very often. It will be easier to contact you, no offence to any other person who answered my post.
Also, I would like to thank you for posting an answer on my story. I didn't think I would be talking to an actual Medium/Exorcist.

Ah Rook how wonderful to see you again,

and to all who have been so friendly in their comments its so nice to be remembered. It truly warms my heart.
As to the rosemary in the bath, of course Rook how silly of me while the protective bath is sufficient as is each additional protective herb would only strengthen the mixture. Such as rosemary or sage dust to make it easier on the body to bathe in.

Lou to answer your question, the three original heads of the O.E.S. Took our operating names from three historical or mythological manipulators of fate.

The Piper, a tribute to the Pied Piper of Hamlin: is an exorcist amongst us whose music has been found to calm the spirits.

The Scryer giving tribute to the soothsayers of old who can change a mans fate by offering glimpses of foresight: Our Empath who rather then seeing or hearing spirits can sense their emotions and often helps in determining the type of spirit we are dealing with as well as the emotional tone of an area.

The Puppeteer, A tribute to those skilled enough to manipulate marionettes: As the member of in the organization with the most diverse list of methods I am often pulling the strings of my operatives observing the situation and making changes in our approach when necessary.

Strange as it sounds the system works quite well thank you for asking, so there you have it.

I've heard that too. Last year I went to bed and five seconds after I lay down, I couldn't open my eyes. I had an image of a guy who transformed into a three-headed thing (I found out what it was later the next day), and when I started saying religious protection things, I could open them again. That's when the Grudge sound as you described it started filling the room. I heard it again a few months ago as well.

That's right, you just keep thinking that way. Makes the element of surprise that much sweeter. Besides, I've still got a set of tusks. You feelin' lucky punk?

Jav,
Easy, girl. Wouldn't want you to bust a hip coming around the homestretch.
Don't worry about Jav, Fergie... Tough to hold a sword in a cloven hoof... Unless maybe it has a leather strap.

Fergie,
There is no better opponent then Lou. I imagine we'll be at this for years to come. We're just a couple of die hards, I guess. Besides, it's much too fun a race to give up now! 😁

I haven't seen Red around these parts for a while. So it looks like you and are standard bearers for now. I believe we can handle it. 😉

Don't you worry Miss Fergie. I could never be offended by anything you say, you are too nice. It's just that Lou remembers what it feels like when you get the old Javelina riled up. How's that scar tissue coming along Lou? Am I going to have to remind you what happens to those who make fun of redheads now? Because I do offer refresher courses, if you're interested. Just had the hooves buffed and sharpened too. 😆 😆
What about it Lou? Once more for old times sake? 😉

Thanks Lou, I guessed you were, (see my wink?) but just making sure.
Redhead jokes? Now why on earth would I do that? I absolutely LOVE red hair! I actually experimented with a few shades of that, on myself. 😐
I am a bit too old for that now though. I am having a few 'blonde' years now, before I am totally white!

No, Fergie. That was a joke...she's a little tougher skinned than that. Just don't make any redhead jokes and you will be fine.

Lou, do you think Jav will really get riled up about the pork? I don't want any bad blood, here or anywhere for that matter. 😉

Hi MizM, 180c should do it just fine. Turn after 1 hour. Open the foil for the last 15 - 20 minute and put the oven on grill. It 'browns up' beautifully.

Lou, I heard that those plastic bags are very bad for a person? Word on our 'news' says, "never cook/freeze in plastic" it gives off toxins; can cause/help along cancer! With a cancer patient in our family, I would rather not take the risk; I rather slow cook in foil. 🤔

And Fergie, I'm all for slow roasting, but I did a four pound pork loin roast for Christmas in an oven bag in 45 minutes.:)
