My husband and I moved into our house nearly three years ago which is a new build and we are the first owners, however this past year or so, I have had some strange encounters.
One morning, my husband had an early shift and left the house at half four in the morning. My alarm was due to go off an hour later at half 5, however 5 minutes before I suddenly woke up and about 2 seconds later I heard a crash in my front lobby. My cat who was at the bottom of the bed started to hiss and growl so I went to investigate. When I went downstairs, I saw that a toolbox had been knocked over. Thinking that it was Steve leaving, I picked it back up. When I turned I saw my cat half way up the stairs too scared almost to come into the lobby. When I went to stroke her to calm her nerves, she stared straight past me as if she was looking at something in the lobby, so thinking that it was an insect or something I turned back but nothing was there. The strangest thing about this was that the toolbox had been there for a couple of weeks and had been untouched for while, so for it to just fall over I thought was a bit strange.
The second thing that happened in the lobby was when I was just about to leave for work. I was about to pick up my bag and looked in the mirror and I saw a black shadow moving in the reflection. When I turned, there was nothing there, so thinking it was a draft moving my light shade looked up expecting It to be moving, however it was perfectly still. (may I add that the front door was not open at this point).
A few other things have happened to me in this house, like one time I was watching the tv and I thought I could see someone coming up to the front door through my blinds which were closed, but no one knocked or rang at my door so I ignored it. This happened again a few minutes later and then for a third time so I got my husband to have look in case it was maybe kids playing about but no one was there.
The last thing (which is the monster terrifying) is when I am in my room at night, I keep thinking someone is at the door watching me, but when I look, there is nothing there. This is happening every night now and every night I am getting the feeling that it is something bad or evil, and now I am too scared to even look at the door that I cover my head with the duvet cover (even when my husband is there).
Can anyone help as I don't know if I'm just being paranoid?
