Big Bang


I know maybe you are thinking "bet they are lying or must be joking". But this is a true story. It all started on Friday 13, 1986. I will never forget what had happened to me, that ghastly moment, the troubles I had. It all happened that night, I was watching a horror movie, I knew I should not because every time, I would imagine there was something in that house. You see, I lived alone in that old, bleak house. I quickly switch my movie off because I heard this loud tapping coming from my attic door. So I built up some courage and slowly walked to the attic, not knowing what would lay beneath that rotten door.

The tapping's would become bangings, every step would bring me fear. Eventually I got to the attic door, opened it slowly, the banging stopped and nothing was there, just cobwebs and scrap books from years ago. I decided to go to bed as it was next door. So I brushed my teeth quickly, wanting to go bed of course. There I was, laying on my bed, listening to the little noises my house made. Until there was a large BANG next door, I was terrified... who wouldn't be. I started to cry, thinking some burglar got into my house. As the telephone was on the table next to me, I rang the police to come and check my house of them terrible burglars.

After waiting 15 minutes, I heard a bang on the door. So I ran downstairs and answered the door. But the police weren't at my door, they were a distance from my house, like they were scared of someone or something. I will never know what did happen but it must be bad to keep the police away...

I have cops in my family and I don't know of any that would stay away because of loud noises. Just the opposite, they come all that much faster. Plus, I would have definetly found out the reason why, if they didn't in the first place.

Dear Franchesca,

Your story is quite creepy indeed. I believe you have a malevolent prescence at your house. Did the police question you? I advise you to have your house blessed. If it truly is a demon then here is a website that might help:

Thank you for sharing your story with us. God bless you and take care.

I never watch horror movies they scare me and may give me nightmares. The other day I heard little girl voices, bang, and something walks in my mum and days bedroom because I feel scared. I have seen 2 ghosts in this house.

Weird. It's strange that the police didn't keep attempting to get inside of the house, but they were strayed away? I don't understand that really... It's their job... And they usually don't let much prevent them from doing their job. Unless they were just chillin' out on the street corner finishing their coffee and eating a dohnut? Heh. Anyway, good story.

Sorry but this does sound a wee bit fake. Why would the police be scared of someone? They're the police! And anyone who phones the police just because they heard a bang, should ask themselves if they really think that's an appropriate way to use police resources!
But hey, maybe there was banging noises coming from your attic. Although I'm a little confused...quote..."not knowing what would lay beneath that rotten door..."...beneath? I'm sure you meant to say behind or above, unless you have an upside down house and the attic is in the basement!?

Dear franchesca,

Latin, profanity, author won't participate in the discussion, and the story opens with the following line: I know maybe you are thinking "bet they are lying or must be joking". Who needs all of those things like Latin, profanity and so forth to make a statement about the story, let alone pick it or publish it, dear boys---and girls?

Abby says: This story is not true. One thump on head, and don't call these police, because they don't have GPS, only directionally, disabled, butt sniffing dogs! Maybe the dogs should have sniffed this story! 😉 Did I say that or was it my lack of hormones?--Abby

My latin is a little bit rusty (what, no google latin to english translation tool?) but I have a rough idea of what you're saying Shane 😉 It reads too much like a fiction short story to be real, but who knows, I couldn't say for sure.

Cave ne ante ullas catapultas ambules, or better yet, Certe, Toto, sentio nos in kansate non iam adesse. Figured out a way to express my opinions in a different manner.

Peace, Love, and luck be with you.

Franchesca, definitely creepy! Did you ever ask the cops why they didn't come up to your door? Did they eventually? I also love to watch horror movies and anything related. I get scared too but you know, you can always tell if you're spooking yourself with what you're watching. I haven't had anything happen while I was watching something scary, but I do get spooked by it. When something legitimate happens I can surely tell the difference.
