About a month after I had moved into the rent house on Fourth Street I was settling in my new place. But every once in a while, mostly in the evenings, I'd see something like a shadow the size of a crumpled paper sack; pass along the floor by the hall entrance. I would only see it from the living room; it would just dart across into the adjacent bedroom. It happened so often, I just took it for granted.
One night my landlord friend came by for a visit, we were watching a video and I saw it roll by like usual. My friend turned to me and said "I must be really tired, I thought I saw a cat run into the front bedroom" I had to laugh and said you're not that tired, I saw it too. "What are you talking about?" I told her that I'd been seeing it since I moved into the house. She laughed it off and said she hadn't experience anything like that when she lived there.
Not too long after that though, I got a real shock. I had come home from work and went straight into my bedroom to change clothes. I pulled open the closet door and in the blink of an eye it sprang out and flew under my bed. I nearly jumped out of my shoes; it wasn't so much that I was scared but surprised. But I have to say, falling asleep that night was a challenge.
The only other happenings were one night I had a tug-o-war with my comforter, it felt like it was being pulled off the foot of the bed. I grabbed it and pulled it under my chin and could swear it was being pulled down again. But then I was half asleep too. The other was early one morning I heard a whisper in my ear; I didn't understand what was said but I was wide awake until the alarm went off at 6.
Thank you for reading.
