Just when mum and my brother and I moved in to the house after the divorce, we immediately noticed that we were not alone in the house.
I'm going to tell you about an experience mum had when she was alone. This was about 2 months after we moved in. I and my brother were visiting my dad, and mum was upstairs taking a shower because she was going over to a friend later on. Downstairs, she had a candle in a candleholder shaped like a little house on top of the fireplace. She forgot about it, but when she stood in the bathroom putting on make up after her shower, she heard a scratching noise.
Naturally, she thought it was our 2 kittens so she didn't pay much attention to it. The scratching kept on going and became stronger. She went outside the bathroom to see exactly what the kittens were scratching to make that noise, but when she reached the bedroom, she found them sleeping on her bed. Mum went on to the stairs, thinking maybe me and my brother had returned home. She called out our names but she got nothing but silence in return (Of course, since we weren't home).
At this point, she was freaked out but started to walk down the stairs to check out the noise, as it seemed to come from the living room. When she reached the bottom of the stairs she saw the backside of a long black dress sweep into the living room. She ran after it, and saw that the candleholder on the fireplace had caught on fire. She managed to put it out before anything else got damaged. The woman in the dress were no where to be seen.
When me and my brother returned home she told us all about it, and we thought about what could've caused the scratching noises. It wasn't until my mum tried to scratch her nails against the fireplace that we found out what it was. It seems like the lady in the black dress saw the fire, and scratched on the fireplace until she got mums attention!
