As my cousin was visiting me in the UK from the USA, we were staying in my grandparents house for the week that she was over. The house itself is extremely old as it used to be a Lord's house many years ago and is known to be haunted by everyone who stays up there. My cousin and I, already having discovered that it was haunted weren't too afraid but were still on edge when we were left alone in the house.
Last night, we stayed in my cousin's temporary sleeping area, a small room by a narrow attic stair that leads to two separate rooms in the peak of the house. We were underneath one of them, a room which we call 'The Green Room' which is known by us and others to have a spirit in. We know this for certain as when staying up there we have been met by strange noises, shadows and peculiar feelings of distaste.
Throughout our time in our room last night, we had been hearing all sorts of tapping and scraping noises but as we were used to them, we decided to let whatever it was be and carry on with what we were doing. We said our good night's at 11:30 and settled down to sleep for the night; with me on the blow up mattress on the floor and my cousin in her bed next to me.
At 2:30am I was awoken by my cousin's frantic tapping on my shoulder and I could soon hear why she was so panicked. Above us in 'The Green Room' we could hear an immense amount of banging and crashing around, like somebody was up there throwing things all over the floor. We could also hear the attic door slamming and a series of footsteps stomping up and down the stairs and into the rooms above us. We knew for certain that our grandparents were in their beds asleep as they would not be up this early in the morning destroying the rooms up there. So who else could it be but the spirits that haunted that area?
The banging and the crashing carried on through the night nonetheless, waking me and my cousin up several other times. Even though we know the house is haunted and somewhat troubled by the things that walk unseen there, we have never been this afraid before. We still haven't had the courage to go and look in the attic rooms but we are sure something paranormal went on.
It certainly wouldn't be the first time for something like that to happen. We've not felt threatened by the attic's rooms many times before but I admit to having felt a cold breeze every time I've walked past the door.
If last nights experience was anything other than a nightmare, it was a mystery and the start of a curious urge to find out what really is in 'The Green Room.'
