The house I grew up in, my parents' current home, is haunted. Most of the activity that has occurred happened mostly when I was little. My dad is the one that has experienced paranormal activity the most; my mother a close second catching glimpses of entities as they were walking into other rooms. My older brother and I haven't had many experiences other than hearing a few things. I remember being a small child and seeing someone peek around the corner at me, and it wasn't a person that I knew, but that didn't bother me. However, one experience happened to me a little over six years ago that I will never forget.
It was in the summer of 2006... I was home for the summer from university, and it was also a few months after my grandfather had passed away. So, one night, I'm in my bedroom at my parents' house, and I notice a large spider on my wall. I don't know about anyone else, but if there's a spider in my bedroom, I cannot sleep, I have to know where the little beast is. Anyway, after a long standout with the spider, it finally fell off the wall, and, somehow ended up squished a few feet away on the floor from where it had fallen, which I found to be quite odd.
That finally ended around 5AM, and I went into my bathroom to get ready for bed. I had just closed the bathroom door, when there was a loud banging on that door. I figured it was my dad letting me know he was up and was putting the dog outside. I opened the door to acknowledge it, and the hallway was dark, and my parents were asleep (there's no one else in the house except for us). This is when my legs turned into jelly, and I ran to my parents' bedroom, threw their door open, and woke them up with the commotion I had made. I was terrified after that had happened. I could never use the restroom in the middle of the night for about 2 years; and when I did, I had to leave the door partly open. Even now, when asked to house sit, I'm hesitant, but I do it anyway; I just make sure there's a TV on and plenty of lights on so I don't feel too alone.
My dad tried to debunk the incident by saying it could have been the dog's tail wagging and hitting the door. I disagree with him; she was asleep, her tail couldn't move that fast, and I had startled her when I ran out the bathroom door. So what could it have been? I would like to find that out... Maybe.
There have been other things that have gone on in my parents' house while I was growing up. My dad says he sees things in the house still. I've haven't heard anything recently, but that was the scariest thing I've experienced. I don't think that could have been my grandfather because I know he wouldn't scare me. And, my dad's friend said he experienced something very similar in that same bathroom many years before, and everyone was outside.
