I've lived in my current apartment with my three flatmates for almost two years now and nothing weird ever happened before. However, we've had some things going on in the past month or two, I'm not quite sure they are even connected or really paranormal (I guess you can explain away a lot of things when you really try), so I've decided to submit them here and get a second opinion from people who are interested in the paranormal and possibly more knowledgeable than me.
One evening about two months ago I was home alone, just hanging out, reading, that sort of thing. It was already dark outside, so the light in the room was on. I was lounging on the couch, facing the wall. Suddenly I became aware of movement so I looked up just in time to see a black, shadowy, cloud-like substance projected on the blank, white wall in front of my face dissolve/evaporate into thin air. The whole thing lasted for a few seconds. I quickly turned around to look around the room but as I expected, nothing looked out of place. I'm a 100% sure that I saw it, I don't normally go around seeing random clouds on my walls. I tried to explain it as seeing the heat coming from the radiator or something like that but the radiator is further along the same wall so there is no way it could cast a shadow like that. I ended up shrugging it off and going back to whatever I was doing.
The next event occurred about a week or two later, although I'm not sure how legit it is. I share a room with another girl who is also my cousin. I have of course known her all my life and we have been roommates for about four years now, we've shared a room in a previous flat as well. She's sometimes prone to muttering or snoring in her sleep, so occasionally needs a light prod or two, but she's never had any extreme reactions while sleeping or dreaming. Last month, though, I woke up in the middle of the night to her almost crying in her sleep, hysterically repeating 'oh no, oh no' over and over. She sounded really troubled so I decided to put her out of her misery and give her a poke. It shut her up alright, so as far as I was concerned that was it and I too went back to sleep. I had a very vivid dream of a distorted shadow figure with glowing white eyes and it was, for a lack of better words, out to get me. It was tugging on my ankles and pulling me off the bed when I suddenly awoke to the sound of my own voice, saying 'oh no' in the exactly same voice full of hysteria my roommate did earlier. It was still dark outside, I was quite shaken up, I felt like my ankles were almost vibrating. I just pulled the covers over my head, never opening my eyes, and went back to sleep. I asked her the next day if she had nightmares but she said no, she actually said she remembers dreaming about a fruit or something silly like that, definitely no shadow figures hunting her down. I do tend to have very vivid, colorful, even bizarre dreams almost every night but I almost never have nightmares and I really never wake myself up. Maybe she sounded so desperate in her sleep she somehow managed to subconsciously freak me out and that's all it was. I certainly hope so.
The last thing that also prompted me to write my story happened just a couple of days ago. It was morning, around nine or so, and my roommate and I were home alone. I was still dozing on and off and I could hear her walking around in the kitchen that's across the hall from the room. Suddenly I was completely awakened by a whisper that came from the other end of the bed. I couldn't understand what it said but I think it must've been about two or three words and spoken in a really girly voice. I started thinking about what it could've been but eventually drifted back to sleep. When I got up a couple of hours later I would've forgotten all about it but then my roommate mentioned she woke up to whispering early that morning, around dawn. She said it was a woman's voice and as far as she could tell it was a foreign language because she couldn't make out any of it. My jaw dropped. We weren't too upset about it as it didn't sound overly scary but we did agree that it's quite trippy. I'd say out of the three experiences this one was the most 'real' because it was both of us that heard nearly the same thing. The other two flatmates just laughed it off but have asked about our 'ghostie' almost every day since.
Another peculiar thing I've noticed since is a mark on the lower part of my leg and it looks a lot like a bite mark of sorts. I'm thinking it could be related because I first noticed it around that time and I can't think of engaging in any activities that would logically leave me with one and my roommate doesn't bite, as far as I know. I'm not sure what to think!
The apartment we rent is the second floor of a house, I'd estimate it was built in the 60's or 70's by our landlord who lives on the first floor. His wife passed away from an illness about 20-30 years ago, we're not sure if in the home or in the hospital.
I'm sorry if this story seems like a lot of blabbering about nothing but I wanted to share it and I'm just really curious to hear your opinions, am I just way too paranoid or might some of these occurrences actually be connected?
