It was late at night, I can't remember the exact time, but roughly around ten o' clock. My mother was sitting at the table making a sandwich and I was on the living room floor watching t.v. And my middle sister brenda was in the shower. All of the sudden, my mom looks up and says "why did you try to scare me?" I looked at her and said "who tried to scare you?" And she said "brenda come out from behind the door I already saw you". I told my mom "brenda is still in the shower there's nobody there". She got up yelling for her to come out from behind the door and when she walked over there, there was no one there. She sat down and said I don't believe it. Now I am sitting there freaking out because I know I didn't see her there and my mom is starting to pray. My sister finally get out of the shower and says "you look like something scared you?" Just then, there was the loudest bang you could ever hear in your life on our back door.
I jumped out of my bed and ran to my mom's room with my sister as she followed. We sat there and waited and out of nowhere we could hear the back door open slowly with the creeks and all the other scary noises you could think of. I told my mom "it's in the house" she kept saying "no, it's nothing don't worry". My sister and I started to pray and hoped our dad would get home soon. After what seemed like hours, the door slammed shut and we could hear running around the house. We waited in the room until my dad got home.
Around 1 a.m. he finally got home and we told him all about it, he laughed at us and called us chickens, which we were. He went out with a rubber exhaust hose and walked around the house for a long time and when he came back in he said he couldn't see anything, no foot prints or tracks of any kind.
Till this day, I tell this story to my friends and family and every time I say it, I get chills, teary eyed and just plain scared. But my mom never forgets the day it almost got us. We could never figure out what was running around the house or what opened the door.
From the sounds of it, it was just trying to have some fun, but took it a bit too far.
Thanks for sharing this with us!
