Since my last story my mother and I have moved to a nice modern flat a block away from our old house. Here's me thinking "Ah, a nice new house. This surely won't be haunted!" Well, I was wrong. Though I can say activity has definitely decreased since living here, I believe we have some residents here that were here long before this house was.
One of the most significant events to happen to myself took place around a month ago. I was getting ready to go for a walk, so I was sitting on my bed tying up my shoes and for some reason unknown to me I looked over to the end of my bed. To my surprise I saw a small black figure suddenly duck under the bed! It was small, around a meter tall and completely black. I'm guessing that it didn't want me to see it, hence the ducking. I didn't get any negative vibes off it, I was just rattled somewhat. Other than that it's been the usual case of hearing footsteps, light switches going on and off, occasionally seeing a figure dart out of the corner of my eye and something moving around and shuffling boxes in my closet. (Rodents can't be to blame as we don't have any here.) I have also occasionally been feeling a weight at the end of my bed, like someone sitting down.
Now to my mother's experiences, she has been feeling a full blown cat curl up at her feet most nights. Even being able to feel it with her feet only to open her eyes and nothing be there. The freakiest encounter yet happened around a month or two ago. My mother was sitting at our coffee table drinking her morning coffee and turned to look out our glass sliding door, only to be shocked to see a humanoid figure leaving through the glass door! Now, I give it a humanoid term because my mother clearly got a non-human vibe from it. It was also naked, any ideas from readers as to why? She only saw it for a second before it was gone.
We have both gotten feelings of been watched as we sleep, I wouldn't call it a negative feeling, just more unsettling. Now, on two occasions a jelly candle which has been placed on my duchess has flown off without warning. Wind couldn't be to blame as my windows were firmly shut. It was also placed far enough away from the edge that simply falling couldn't be to blame either. I get the feeling that something wanted my attention quite strongly, but I was unable to communicate with it. Or for better words, I didn't want to! Haha. Our dog David has also been seen randomly barking and staring at something we cannot see down our hallway. I'm going to take a good guess here and say that whatever lives in our home with us resides in our hallway/my room. I say this because my room generally seems to be a hive of activity. (Oh lucky me.)
What I'm not sure of, is how many exactly reside here with us. My mother was recently in hospital for a major operation and seemingly brought home a few 'friends' too. So, we've seen the humanoid naked figure (it kind of creeps me out), the small black figure, (possibly a child due to all the pranks), numerous spirit animals and the candle thrower. Thankfully I have not felt any negative vibes, so as long as that stays that way they are welcome to live here with us.
So, really my question is, has anyone got any ideas on what this humanoid naked figure is? Should I be worried? It certainly freaked me out and my mum too. I don't think it's menacing as both her and I would of picked something up by now. Also, ideas on how I can communicate with this entity who likes messing with my candle?
