To those unfamiliar with my stories, I live in a house inhabited by four spirits. This particular telling is of Adam, or Kiddo as we used to call him before he let me know what his name is, who is the only one who is bound to the house as he burned to death in the room he now sees as his sanctuary. He seems to be around 4 years old. There is a picture of him on my profile. He is a very shy little boy, rarely shows himself, and loves it when the twins play in his room. He does interact, but only when he feels like doing so, and not when he is taken by surprise.
One Sunday afternoon in March 2014, I had been busy re-arranging things in my room, when my son H came running into my room exclaiming, "Mommy, I just saw Kiddo!" He had a look of fright mixed with amazement on his face.
I asked him what exactly he saw and he explained that he had been playing cowboys and crooks, he was sitting on the treadmill behind the couch and he had a toy gun in his hands. His back was turned toward the doorway that has Adam's room doorway directly to its right, and when he turned around and headed out, he saw Adam standing in the doorway of his room. H explained that "Kiddo was gone quick as a mouse." This was so cute I could not help but giggle at the way he said it.
I sent Tim a message and told him what had happened and he said that Adam had not expected to be seen and when H did see him Adam got a fright and leaped into his room. Ironically the spirit ran away scared and the human tried to find him. In retrospect, H was carrying a toy gun, it could have been what scared Adam.
