I now reside with my mother and my two boys in her house, thanks to the economy. My mom lives in a 70+ year old house and probably has seen a lot of things going on since it's been here.
The first time I came to visit her before we moved in, I sensed something strange in the house. It didn't scare me or make me concerned about her being here by herself. I noticed shadows moving in the front room. I wrote them off as the shadows of the trees when the streetlight hit them.
When I spent the night, I would often feel something lightly brush my face, as if a fingertip from someone's hand was stroking my face. It felt weird, but nice.
And after we moved in here with her, some of the hauntings became a little more frequent.
When my youngest son went out the door to get on the bus, I waited on the step to make sure he got on okay. Then I went back to bed for a couple of hours before I had to go to one of my classes at the local community college.
I was almost asleep when the front door sounded like it was being opened. I didn't pay any attention because I figured my son forgot something and came back in to get it. I heard what sounded like someone walking around my bed and go through my closet. I thought my mom was up and needed a shirt from me or something. I peeked my eye open and didn't see anyone. I thought it was kind of strange and chalked it up to our "housemate."
One other morning, I was in that state of almost being awake when I saw a man in my face. My eyes were very fuzzy and it startled me. I didn't get a clear visual on him, unfortunately. I know he was young, perhaps teens to mid 20s with dark hair. He didn't and doesn't pose a threat.
The kids and I see him out of the corner of our eyes a lot of the times. He likes to play with my mom's wind chimes in the middle of the night. I bought a bell the other day in case he comes around and wants to make his presence known to me.
One of these days, I will do a search on the previous owners who lived here and see if there were any deaths in the house or in the immediate area. I would really like to know who this young man is.
