The Invisible Thing


I always wanted to believe in the paranormal, but I was a skeptic like most people. I had to "see it to believe it". I was only about 15-16 years old, and was dating someone who claimed his house was haunted. First of all, this guy was one of those people who stretched the truth, and made up stories all the time. So I really didn't pay any attention to his allegations. I tried to come up with excuses for everything he claimed, thinking that he and his friends were messing with me, (because things only happened when his parents were gone). Several little things did happen here and there, but I still didn't believe until one night.

His bedroom was near the kitchen where the furnace was located, but yet his room was freezing at all times. No matter how hot the rest of the house was, you could feel a total temperature change as soon as you walked through the door way. I simply blew it off stating that it was an old house. One night while watching tv, he set down his drink and came over to give me a hug, (he was facing his drink on the table, I was not). He then says "don't move!" We sat there a moment, when he finally let go of me, he told me to look at his drink. It had been moved over to a different spot. I tried to come up with a reason. I swore that he moved it while I wasn't looking, trying to make sense of it.

Then, there was the slamming of the other bedroom doors. He would say "see, I told you!" But I would immediately run through the house checking the windows claiming it was the wind coming through - BUT ALL THE WINDOWS WERE CLOSED! I didn't know what to say. What finally made me a believer was the night I heard "IT" walk by me! We were home alone again, I was sitting in a recliner near the bedroom door facing the kitchen. We then heard someone open the front door and walk in. There was a pause and we both looked at each other wondering who it was and what they were doing because no one said anything. Before we could ask "who's there?" or even check, the "invisible" began to walk slowly across the kitchen floor - RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME! It was the most eerie thing I had ever heard. It would take a step, and drag, take a step, and drag, as if "it" were dragging something very heavy. Total terror and disbelief took over my body. I couldn't move, I couldn't speak, I couldn't turn away. Not like someone was holding me, but I was so terrified like I was paralyzed with fear. I just set there shaking with my mouth open and tears running down my face. I could hear something walking right in front of me, but yet there was nothing there!

Once it walked across the kitchen it just stopped, like nothing ever happened. Then I started screaming, and went into an asthma/anxiety attack. Once I recovered, I demanded to be taken home and I never returned!
