This is my third posted story and technically a continuation of my first story, "Why Are You Here?" I've had more incidents happen since then. My mom and I are still the targets of all of this, although my stepdad was there when it occurred to my mother. We'll start with that incident.
According to both my parents, my mom was about to go upstairs to sleep; she had had a long day. But as she went to cover the cages for the birds, she felt somebody tug on her shirt and she was pulled several feet back before falling on the floor. This couldn't have been my stepdad; he watched this all happen from the kitchen. He could SEE her shirt stretch back. During this time, our African Grey parrot was going nuts and moved around her cage as if a stranger was walking around it! (This parrot is very unsocial. She hates strangers, especially men! She's growl, shriek, hiss, and get as far away from the person as possible in her cage!) My mom had told me this story once I woke up the next morning.
This next one is my experience. I was sitting on my computer, and just doing my own thing, when my phone slid from one side of the desk to the other. At first I thought my phone was vibrating - I had headphones on so I wouldn't have heard it. I checked my phone and it was turned off just as I had left it. I set it on the shelf atop my desk and went downstairs to get a drink. I came back upstairs and my phone was sitting neatly on my keyboard with a missed call from an unknown number with lots of static in the voice mail.
Another incident I had woken up with a startle because of a loud noise. I looked up and saw my closet had fallen over; this was weird because it was nailed up. I was fully awake and can remember everything. But as I looked at the closet, a woman's figure appeared from behind my clothes. That was all I could remember when I awoke... And my closet door was completely normal and not fallen over.
This is the most recent incident and still scares me. I was sitting on the phone with my boyfriend as usual for every night. He and I were actually discussing spirits and ghosts, odd enough. My door suddenly swung open and I was just stared at it. I told my boyfriend what happened and he said it could have been it just slowly opening since my doorknob and lock are kind of broken. I then explained to him I had a box full of books keeping my door shut. I eventually fell asleep on the phone with him and when I awoke... I had burn marks on my left cheek and a huge scratch down my side. I texted my boyfriend good morning before leaving for school as I normally do. His reply shocked me. He said that after I had fallen asleep, he had fallen asleep too and forgot to hang up. He woke up several hours later to hear me crying in my sleep with voices in the background.
Also, an interesting little fact as to why the title is titled "An Idea." There is a plot of land that was once a mental hospital - it was torn down so a Wal-Mart could be built there. However, rumours circulated about it being haunting after it was abandoned. This was when my mom was a teenager. She snuck into the place with her friends and would roam the place. She found odd things like a nurse's diary, a patient's diary, and several other things. The nurse's diary talked about "experiments" to see if the patients had psychic abilities. This is the best way my mom could explain it. The patient's diary described one of these things. I forget the name my mom had told me, but the patient was a woman in her 20s. She wrote about being locked in a closet, tied to a chair, with a small table put in front of her with beads. They told her to move the beads. With no way to move, it was obvious they meant with her mind. They turned the light off in the closet and locked it; leaving her there. My mom joked about our haunting being this woman, as my mom had taken her diary... But it had burned in a fire when I was young. This haunting being a woman only applies to the closet incident... Otherwise I've only ever seen a male figure or heard male voices.
