Now this goes back to the first few months that my (now recently ex) partner and I were first together, which would make it late 1994/early 1995.
We had gone out for a couple of hours to the local pub (note here: we hadnt been drinking alcohol just soft drinks this night) and decided to go to our favorite spot in the bush and have a bit of *ahem* fun [wink]
Now I have to explain about the clearing we always parked in. Yes it was bushland (we live in the country) but the trees were thinned out enough you could see for some way all around, and the trees being mostly saplings/young trees, it was easily seen if anyone else was around. On this particular night there was a full moon streaming its light down so we could easily see around us. AND it was far enough in from the main road that we wouldn't be noticed unless someone was actually looking for someone parked there.
So to the story proper. We'd had our *ahem* fun, just sitting chatting in general and being affecionate as young couples do and as we'd always done. We BOTH suddenly got the feeling that something was watching us intently. I knew he felt it too by the way we BOTH started to peer round looking for something. I actually asked him at this point if he felt anything. Actually my exact words to him were, "Do you feel like somethings watching us?". His reply was yes that he felt something was watching us but not WHAT it was. I didn't know about him at this point but I felt something wasn't right about whatever was watching us and we got out of there as fast as we could.
When we got back to the nearest town (in which he lived, I lived a further 3-4 km's north from this spot) we stopped and spoke about it. We discussed what both of us had felt at our usual spot. Basically what he described and felt, of which I agreed with his description as I was more or less interupting him as he described it, there was SOMETHING there watching us and something about it wasn't RIGHT about it. SOMEthing we couldn't see. That if we hadn't of gotten out of there when we had, something could or would possibly have happened that neither of us would've expected or wanted.
When I said that I refused to go back there at night now or in the future his reponse was "I won't ask you to". I knew then what I felt/sensed WASNT my imagination, he'd felt it, too!
To this day I don't know what it was that we both felt/sensed, all I know is that we both felt/sensed it and it didn't sit right with either of us. And now, almost 17 years later, neither of us have been back to that spot but have seen other vehicles parked in the spot we used to park, both at night and during the day. I often wonder if these people have felt the same thing at some point that we did.
We never actually saw anything, just that feeling that something was there, watching. It was eerie, frightening, fascinating and intriguing all at the same time. All I know is every time I have passed the spot (which is often), I'm reminded of it.
And an update on the happenings in the house... I have noticed since my partner and I have separated (we're still in regular contact and speaking) the feelings/sightings/hearings have lessened, such as hearing Kippy/g/father/seeing ponies walking about etc, BUT (theres always a but isn't there lol) one thing hasn't stopped that I have not mentioned before. Hearing the light switches flicking on (or off) but the lights NOT coming on (or off) which I have heard for years. Just the noise of them being switched on/off. They continue with a regularity like nothing's changed in my life from a child! And yes the light switches (even the powerpoint switches!) in the original part of the house are fairly easily heard! Funny thing is, even with the tv going, hall way door shut, fan on the fire (wood heater) at the same time they can be heard!
