Hey everyone. First off I just want to say I am addicted to this web site! I love reading everyone's stories! I've been a reader for a long time and this is my first and probably only story. I'm not writing this with the expectation of comments or feedback, I'm just simply writing for your enjoyment just like I enjoy reading all of these stories. So with that said here it goes.
A few years ago when I was in my preteens or maybe even younger I lived in an an apartment with my parents on the second floor above my grandparents. One day my aunt, who lives on the third floor (everyone in the apartment was family), moved out with her husband and my two cousins and her friend moved in shortly after.
Well everything was fine when my aunt was living upstairs but when this girl moved in, I didn't know why this happened, but the whole house started shaking like there was an earthquake and I would hear footsteps at night.
I first noticed the shaking in my room and then in the living room where my parents noticed it too and then it was the whole house. I would wake up at night with my bed shaking and sometimes even footsteps outside my room. I once saw something white run really quick past my room. It looked like the outline of a person but I wasn't sure because it moved so fast. I went out of my room to investigate but, of course, there was nothing out of the ordinary. But every time my bed would shake at night (which happened frequently), I would go and sleep on the couch and that's where I would spend the rest of the night. There are never reports of any earthquakes in our area so this is very unusual.
Now my parents would try to explain this away by saying she must have a dryer up there or something that vibrates but I've been in her house to play with her cats and her daughter, who was two at the time, and I've been in the room that was right above my bedroom where the earthquake-like shaking would mostly occur and there was nothing in her house that would cause a vibration and this didn't happen until after she moved in, that I've been aware of anyway.
I'm not sure if this is related but before that, when I was about eight or nine, we (my parents, brother, and I) moved temporarily into the basement that my grandfather made into a house-like setting (kitchen, living room, bedroom, you get the idea) while our house was being remodeled. I've been told by my dad after we moved out of that apartment that at night the whole basement would start shaking without any cause, but I was apparently asleep when this happened so I never noticed. He checked the news and researched the area but there were no reports of any earthquakes and it was only in the basement.
I tried submitting a story like this before a while back ago but it wasn't excepted, but I've read a few stories on here about rooms and objects shaking without any cause or explanation so I thought I'd give it another try.
So there it is! My story. I know it's not too exciting but it is real. I'm not creative enough to make up a fake story and I wouldn't waste my time with that anyway. So I hope you enjoyed. Take care.
