My story begins with me and my fiance moving into a garden cottage on someone's property in the more affluent area of our city in South Africa. The deal was good and we were looking to just get out of where we were. So we jumped at the opportunity.
Coming from a family where spirits have always shown face and presence (my Grandfather was a renowned medium in the 50's), I have sorta picked up on some of the strange happenings over the years and have become much more open to them.
Within the first couple of hours of the 1st night there, I realised we were not alone! My cat was very uneasy and was violently hissing at the cupboard in the bedroom. Thinking nothing of it, or that it just might be some other cat stuck in here, I told her off and carried on with unpacking...
Next minute I heard the SHRIEK of hell as me and my fiance call it. I ran into the room and my cat was under the bed, eyes bulging, hissing, spitting, hairballs everywhere, like she was trying to be grabbed and it kept missing her. Right there and then I knew... HERE WE GO!
I went straight to the area where she was violently hissing at and found the cupboard door slightly open. Not remembering if I had opened it or not, I opened it further and found nothing but was feeling rather uneasy. I came out the room to find my fiance trying to open the bathroom door but it was as if someone was holding the handle up. I started very aggressively banging this door. And then as if nothing was there in the first place. It just opened. I asked the landlord what in God's name was going on. She advised me that it must be a stray and "It's old handles" (yeah right).
Skip a month and half. Nothing major had happened since then. At least not when me and my fiance were together. But we got home one night from dinner out to find a van parked outside. Thinking it was for the other tenants, we drove in and got inside our place, locked up and headed for bed. Slow creaking sound, I open my eyes and see the cupboard door opening. I try register in the dark and get my eyes adjusted and what I see frightened the hell out of me and my fiance for life!
I see the shape of a large man standing in front of the cupboard as if it was someone that broke in and was waiting for the right time to attack (the van outside). I quickly and very aggressively got up with my fiance screaming blue murder as she saw it approaching us and ran towards it. Slammed the cupboard door shut and heard a vicious snarl and a whisper that said "back again," meaning it wasn't over. I have never been so scared in all my life! I will never get that image out of my head.
Now for the real prize. After that harrowing incident, I went outside to find 6 people from the local church surrounding our little cottage. It would seem the other tenants had very bad paranormal experiences and called in the church to help. Then, as it was explained to me, it seemed this dark presence had jumped houses while they were doing their thing. Now they were trying to get it out of my place. I told them, "Only ones getting out are us." They can keep the place!
Apparently a man viciously killed his wife and himself in the main house! Go figure! This guy is pissed! I drove past not too long ago and I looked in. The house looks terrible! No one living there.
