My Midnight Companions

 

This is the account of a series of happenings that occurred in a small basement apartment in Fredericton, New Brunswick; the various encounters with the paranormal are spread out over several years from 1998-2006. The home was quite old, having been built during the 30's with two confirmed deaths in the house. The house is built on land that originally was part of a large farm estate, the house of which is just up the street, perhaps a remnant of this period lies in the back yard as there is this small stone structure that's almost overgrown with weeds, I found it almost bye accident, though I haven't a clue what is is or what it was.

1)The man in my basement: The very first year I lived in this basement apartment we had to redo the carpets and the floors and such, I being a carpenter performed the work for my landlord and had him put it against my (far too high) rent. It was one of these such days that I received the scariest message in my life; I was all alone in the basement painting, when I felt the air grow cold, and I felt as if someone had entered the room, now I had neither seen nor heard anything and none was expected to come, but I had the unshakable feeling that I was just not alone. So I got up from my work and moved towards the entrance when I was stopped by an invisible force... And I heard this hoarse whisper in my ear... GET OUUUT. I know that sounds cheesy and fictional... But I swear it happened. I could feel the warmth of his breath on my ear, my shoulder felt like there was a hand almost touching it... But not quite... I ran out of the house to take a breather and when I went back in I was perfectly fine.

2) One night I lay sleeping in my bed in the bedroom and I awoke to seeing this Victorian looking woman folding clothes or something in the corner of the room. She turned... Looked at me... And her eyes were... Like red and glowing... But not quite because I could see through her, it's indescribable.

I have a few other tales but they'll have to wait as I have some laundry to do, in another room of this basement.

i don't think it was the carpentry... A whole section was added to the house and nothing special occurred

Still sounds like an uncomfortable situation. I just know that your ghost-guests will calm down soon. Do you think they will? Maybe it was the carpentry that stirred their ire?

I have had a few experiences besides this apartment, but they too were in a place I was living, the entities in my childhood home were far more active and malevolent than these bedtime companions of mine, hence why I can still live in this basement without much worry 😕

Yep, J Swagger is a cool name, but I like Gunter even more, but then I have a wierd real name too. And Bell, I stand corrected, "red-glowing eyes" is NOT a good sign! 😨 Gunter I am still wondering if you have paranormal experiences outside of your basement apartment? I'm still trying to determine if you are a psychic. I guess the reason why I want to know, is I think your psychic ability may be used to your advantage in this situation.

Jack? Are you Gunter? I'm a bit confused by that. Anyway, the force that told you to get out, have you heard anything along those lines since? Have you felt threatened any other time? The Victorian woman seems harmless but those glowing red eyes would have scared the heck out of me, even if it was MY laundry she was doing! 😉

Ive had several other experiences, as have others I brought to the place. I believe I mentioned the malevolent shadow entity in my previous post, there have been many unexplained noises and movements of objects in this place. I was sitting down reading the and door to the room I was in opened all the way, and then closed firmly. This rooms is as I mentioned in the basement and as such there are no breezes or gusts of wind capable pf having moved that door. The door thing has happened more than once I might mention, with one such occurance the door opening to reveal the shadow entity. Another interesting occurance in this place is that the sound of footsteps will come up to the door and then stop, you will expect there to be someone at the door... But there is noone, several times I have looked at the door and I have seen what appear to be the shadow of feet outside the door and when I go to open the door to see whoever it is there is noone. I brought a girl to the apartment ,and withoput telling her any of the occurances brought her into the room where the most activity had been observed and asked her for her impression of the room;right away she wanted to leave, she said she felt as if something was watching her 9mind you I hadnt mentioned a word of any of the previous happenings to her)...and there are several others ...but this post is too long already;P

J Swagger, The souls percieve you as the intruder, that's why he told you to get out. He feels territorial. Interesting, the other soul was also telling you that she has "set-up housekeeping" there. Ghosts speak in symbols frequently because it requires enormous energy to present themselves to the living and interact with us. It may not be too late. You maybe able to show respect for you ghost room mates and they will become peaceful. Have you had other ghostly experiences. If you have then I'm inclined to say you will have fewer and fewer problems with them. If you have had other experiences it indicates you are psychic and that is why you picked up on the activity so pointedly.

Dear Jack Swagger, If I EVER heard a voice in my ear whispering "GET OUT"! I'd be damned sure to "GET OUT". Kind of reminds me of the "cheesy" (no disrespect intended!) "Amityville Horror" movie. My question to those people was...why?, why stay? NOT that I believe anything in that movie. Thanks for your story. Please keep us updated...IF...you're still living there.

The Victorian women is okay, I only seen her once, and I felt more curious of her presence than scared, the male entity however scared me, I have onyl heard him taht one time, but I have seen him or a black shadow entity that I assume to be him on several occasions, and each of these occasions is accompanied by a feeling of fear or terror.

Too bad you couldn't get the spirits to really do your laundry. I don't think you have anything to worry about. It doesn't sound as if the spirit is hurting anyone. Usually if they find that they aren't affecting those around them, they tend to fade into the background so to speak. Let us know if you experience anything new.

Peace, Love, and Luck be with you.
