In 2010 I lived in the bottom of a two apartment duplex. During this time we had a series of several tenants coming and going in a matter of weeks. I didn't think much of it, I just assumed it was the nature of the rental business. Eventually we just didn't have a neighbor upstairs.
So the beginning of the new year, I found myself by myself. I spoke with the landlord and asked him about the upstairs apartment, since it was smaller and cheaper, it'd be right up my alley. We quickly made an agreement and soon enough I was living upstairs.
The apartment is small, but comfortable for a single person. For the longest time, everything seemed perfectly fine. Then, just very small, minor things started to happen. I'd wake up in the middle of the night, just feeling odd, that strange, almost violated feeling that someone or something was in my room and watching me.
This continues to happen every once and awhile, usually at random. More recently though something else caught my attention. My friend has a puppy and as puppies often are, they are mischievous and they like to explore.
Except in my apartment. The dog refuses to leave the sight of any of us. A normally happy-go-lucky puppy, changed into a sniveling coward, the dog will simply sit on the couch and whimper, shiver and cry until it leaves the apartment.
This dog, never acts like this anywhere else and they make it a point to take it everywhere and to introduce it to as many people and places as possible. My house and only my house is the only instant in which is suddenly changes it's entire character.
So I've asked myself, do I have a unseen roommate? I can't say for sure and I honestly as long as things don't progress any further, I will try my best to just live with it.
