My partner and I moved into an old army barracks that was over 150 years old, which over time was turned into 4 conjoining homes. A lot of deaths had occurred there. And the only reason that the house came up for rent was because the girl who lived there before us overdosed and died... in our bedroom. My partner worked shift work 5-6 nights a week between the hours of 9pm and could work up until 6am the next morning.
When my partner would get home from work, I would always hear him coming in the door, and then he would come into the bedroom and kiss me, and some nights I had woken up to him just sitting on the side of the bed looking at me. One night, I had the feeling that someone was in the room, and I just assumed that it was Corey coming home from work, so I opened my eyes a bit, and there was this black 'thing' right in my face. I screamed and just as a reaction, I swung my arm in its direction and during this time I had squeezed my eyes shut, but it was only for a second.
When I opened my eyes again, the black 'thing' was gone, but I had woken up Corey who I then remembered had not worked that night. He then said that something had suddenly woken him up only 10 minutes earlier. I would always leave the light on in the lounge room because I didn't want to be in that house in the dark, (the light from the lounge room would light up our bedroom), I knew that it wasn't just a shadow.
Also, due to Corey working night shift, I was often in bed alone, and I frequently got the feeling that I was not the only one in the room. If I ever had the feeling that I was not alone, then I would feel that they were standing beside the bed looking at me, so I would always turn around and face the wall and get to sleep that way. I just used to put it down to that they were watching over me while Corey was at work, but it still scared me.
