My parents' house had all kinds of things happen within. This continues off from the first experience I had that I submitted here. My first experience with the paranormal is explained in my story "At My Parents' House."
As I have said, things would happen at my parents' house, which was built in the early 70's. My first time seeing and hearing a spirit (to my knowledge) came and went. A good amount of time went by without anything happening, the house being haunted was in the back of our minds. We stopped thinking or wondering about it.
As time went by, I had grown into my early teens, and my parents had another daughter who is my youngest sibling. With me wanting more privacy, my parents allowed me to move into the bedroom down in the basement as the new baby needed my old room that was closer to my parents' bedroom.
This was the biggest bedroom in the house, and I was stoked because I could play music and/or stay up late without disturbing anyone. The basement was rather large with a bedroom (mine), a laundry/utility room, a bathroom, and the main room used for a game room. My sister (the older of my two younger siblings, I'm the oldest) would always claim she felt like she was being watched. I thought nothing of it for a while.
About a year of living in that room, I started to feel something watching me as well. It felt very eerie. Sometimes the feeling would be stronger and other times not at all. Then one random time I came out of the room, I could clearly see the outline of a man. He stood across the main room on the other side of my dad's pool table, sort of like he was against the wall. He appeared as sort of an outline, dark looking, but looked more solid than a shadow. I could not see any details such as a face, but I could tell he was male and he was rather tall. He looked like he had a broad build, and he had pointed looking shoulders, like padded shoulders on a jacket you would wear with a formal suit.
At first, I felt a bit frightened. But seeing him standing there became almost a regular thing so eventually I got used to it. He wouldn't do anything really but stand there. Sometimes I would see him move his arms or head a little bit, sort of the fidgeting someone might do when they were bored. He wasn't there every time I looked over there, but when he was, I could clearly see his figure. Oddly enough, though I could feel myself being watched in the basement, my bedroom was the only place down there where I did not have that feeling. I always felt solitude in that room for some reason.
Now, for the part I think is strange. There would be times I would have this dream that I would go to where the figure was standing, but instead of finding him standing there I would find a secret room. Whenever I would get far enough in my dream to actually enter this room, I would feel nothing but unrelenting fear. I cannot understand why I would feel this way, as the room would always be an empty room. I had this dream several times and anytime I had this dream, if I came out of my bedroom for any reason (going to the bathroom, getting something to drink, etc.) I would see the figure of the man the clearest and the most potent. Even with the lights on he appeared as a dark figure.
I never dared go near there when I saw him standing there, but eventually at a time he was not there I decided to investigate. Naturally I didn't find a secret room there, seeing as how the house is laid out it would be impossible.
It has been some years since I have last seen him, but to this day I wonder what the significance of that certain area in the basement held. Also that dream I used to keep getting, it didn't make sense to me why I kept having it. The dream was extremely detailed and when I woke up from it, I know for a fact that I was awake.
Let me know what you all think. Please shed some light on why I had those dreams and why would that figure only occupy that one spot. Thank you all for reading, please let me know your thoughts on this!
