When I was younger I had an experience at my aunt's house in Meopham. It has always been a very nice house and as children we used to go there alot. I never had any kind of strange or worrying feelings except this one time.
It was during winter and my whole family was in the front room. I was in the hallway of the house playing with my brother and I kept getting a feeling we were being watched but dismissed it as my imagination. After a little while my brother got tired and went to sit with my mum and fell asleep, while I stayed in the hallway playing.
I started to hear what sounded like scratching but my aunt's house is very close to fields and a woods so I figured it was mice or birds and ignored it. By this time it was getting late, about 10pm, and the hallway was dark. I have never been afraid of the dark and actually find it quite peaceful. I was just about to go into where the rest of my family was sitting when I started to get a very uneasy feeling, like something was looking right at me but I couldn't see anything. I stood up turned round to where the door to the front room was and I heard a growl behind me.
I remember looking round and all I could see was eyes and teeth looking straight at me. According to my mum, I started screaming and ran for the front door. After I had calmed down I told her what had happened, but she said it was my imagination playing tricks on me, as most mothers would I guess.
I go to my aunt's place a lot with my children now and it has always felt like a very loving feeling when you walk in, but I still get chills and an uneasy feeling when I stand in the hallway. I have always wondered what was it that I saw, this is not my first strange encounter but it is the one that scared me the most.
