Alright, here we go. I'm a 14 year old boy with a pretty normal life, except for some creepy stuff that has been going on the last couple of weeks. My imagination is not that good so I'm pretty sure I'm not imagining. The first time was around a month ago. It was just me and my dad in the house and I needed to get some stuff from the basement. There are stairs made of iron down to the basement and between every step there is a little gap down to the basement. I should also mention that I'm not afraid of the dark...
So my dad was watching TV in the living room which is fairly close to the basement, I turned on the lights about to go down. Halfway down the stairs I heard my dad's laugh, but in slightly darker tone. It was like he was right next to me, or underneath me, It was too hard to tell. I ran all I could up the stairs in fear. I went in to the living room sweating. There was my dad, asleep on the couch. I ran out, far away and came back an hour later when feeling safe again.
This has happened three times to me this month, the last time, I managed to convince myself that I was imagining things and that I was stupid for not wanting to go down there.
This is the first time I'm sharing this story with anyone. Mostly because I'm afraid that people are going to mock me for believing in ghosts and such things.
So the reason I'm sharing all of this is because I want it to come to an end. I'm up a lot of nights thinking of what could be down there and it's just making the situation worse. I have also read a lot online and that not helping either. Just making it worse.
What do you guys think this is? What can I do to make it stop? If it actually is demons, what do they want from me? Thanks.
