Me and My family had just moved into our new apartment in Upstate New York. We have two cats, one is a maine coon and the other a black domestic shorthair. The first night we were on our computers in the den. We were relaxing listening to some new age piano music, all of a sudden we heard the door open and shut. When that happened the cats were frightened so they ran and hid under the bed. We looked up and saw a full bodied apparition coming in from the entrance of our apartment. She was wearing a long victorian black dress, she had long black hair and as she was floating across the floor she smiled and waved to us, after she left a beautiful perfume permeated the house.
We also had other encounters with the Lady In Black. I remember getting woke up one night with my father screaming and saying that a woman was sitting on his bed talking to him. He could not see her but he did say he smelled the same perfume we smelled on the night we saw the apparition.
I have had my cover's pulled off of me while I slept and my head lifted up and my pillows taken out from under me. I have heard a woman's voice whisper in my ear and say "Its okay I am here, I will protect you".
When me and my father are in the cellar we can hear footsteps walking across the floor of my aunts house when she is not home. I have told her about the footsteps and she said to me that she thinks it might be her dead husband or her son walking around in her house.
Me and my family are not frightened by these haunting experiences, we are used to it now. The spirit's are harmless. We have never been physically attacked.
