This happened last night, and it scared me to death. I'm 17 years old and live in california. I was on my computer being the average teenager, talking to my friends. It was obviously dark outside, but really quite warm in my house. I was bored of listening to nothing but the sounds of the whining computer and turning fan, so I got up and turned my fan and lights off and got my iPod to listen to. I had gone through about an hours worth of songs and it was nearing my favorite part... then my ipod decides to skip like a cd player would. When it skipped, I distinctly heard a child cough and then chuckle. This scares me a bit, but I decide it's nothing and put my music away, telling my friends what had happened. They say it's probably nothing and that there was just a flaw in my music, so I go back to normal talking.
Three minutes later my room gets icy cold, and I swear if the lights were on I could see my breath coming out. So I tell my friend what happens and they say "Sam, that's not good... You should turn on the lights or something so that it doesn't come after you or anything. They can't touch you in the light..." I thought about this for a second or two, deciding if it was true or not, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to turn the lights on.
As soon as I stood up, I heard some footsteps on the floor and shuffling noises against the wall right next to the light switch. Sitting down, I thought to myself "That plans out of the park..." Starting to get a little more creeped out, I sit down and watch my room intently, listening for anything and watching for any movement. I'm like a 4 year old when it comes to ghosts, so I'm surprised I didn't scream and run to my older sister.
I went on with life talking to people and stuff, not caring what happens from then on. But I heard the footsteps again, and they're getting closer to me. My neighborhood is connected on the electricity grid and my power goes out. And I look outside and see my neighbors lights all on. So I get a little more scared. Then the shuffling noise comes from my chair and I freeze. A small hand falls on my shoulder and I can't breathe for like a minute. Then my room suddenly gets warm again and I choke down a breath of air. The lights come back on and I hear foot steps walking down the stairs that lead to my room.
I didn't sleep at all last night... And about 30 minutes after all this happened to me, my sister screams because she had a nightmare. I officially and afraid of my house. Haha.
