I have lived in numberous homes throughout my life that were "haunted." Most of the time the spirits were harmless but when I moved into my first home away from my parents at the age of 20 I found one that was not as nice.
In the fall of 1993 my best friend Amanda, her boyfriend, and I rented a mobile home together. I was excited to get out on my own and have some freedom. At first the home seemed perfect. It took us a while to furnish the place but it was coming along. The first encounter we had was about a month after we moved in. We had company and there were about 6 people present and playing video games. Amanda and her boyfriend's bedroom was directly off the living room and they had a bathroom that could only be accessed by going through their room. Suddenly we heard a very loud series of bangs coming from the bathroom. We were all scared by the noise and I was the only one brave enough to go check it out. I found nothing in there and no explanation for the bangs. We finally decided it must have been the pipes and left it at that although I felt it was too loud to simply be pipes.
Amanda and I got a job working third shift at a plant. We slept during the day. One afternoon while lying in bed I heard someone call my name. I was a little freaked out by it. The voice was female. I got up to see if someone had called me. Amanda was in her room sleeping and her boyfriend was outside working on the car with a friend. No one had called me. I had another incident where someone who was not there spoke to me. I was lying in bed after waking up early and dreading going to work. Suddenly I heard a voice saying "stop moving, she's coming!" About 3 minutes later Amanda came in a said it was time to get ready for work.
The most frigtening thing that happened did not happen to me but I did witness it. My bother and a friend were visting from Georgia. They had just arrived and Amanda came to my bedroom to let me know they were there. We walked out to the kitchen. I had just passed the refridgerator to greet my brother with Amanda right behind me. Suddenly a glass jar (I don't remember what was in the jar) came flying off the top of the refridgerator and missed hitting Amanda's head by inches. The logical explanation would be that as I walked by the vibration caused the jar to fall. I would go with that theory if the jar had not been sitting behind something else that was not disturbed at all.
One day Amanda told me she had seen a man wearing overalls standing in her room looking at her. She had no idea who he was and was pretty scared by it. She stopped going to sleep in her room alone.
I finally moved out about a year later. I was not getting along with Amanda's boyfriend and I could not take the stress any longer. After I had moved Amanda said that one night while her and him were sleeping she suddenly woke up. She was not sure why but something had jolted her awake. After lying there for a minute and waking her boyfriend the closet door fell and almost hit them. If they had not awakened it would have hit them.
We are not sure what was causing all the comotion in the home. It seemes as if most of the activity happened when we had company so one theory is the spirit or spirits in the home did not like having so many people around. Another theory is that they did not approve of Amanda and her boyfriend's relationship either because they weren't married or because they were an interracial couple. We will never find out.
