My house is relatively new being built 16 years ago. Nothing "haunting" happens in this home besides the occasional out of the ordinary stuff that I feel is someone letting us know that they're there. This story I'm about to tell is different. It was as if our house was haunted for a few hours.
I had just gotten home from school and decided to grab myself a snack and sit down to watch TV. My older brother was downstairs in the computer room, playing around with a game online. I remember just sitting down on the couch, minding my own business when all of a sudden BANG! BANG! BANG! I stopped what I was doing for a second and, when the noise didn't continue, I put it off as being construction from across the street... But it sounded like it was coming from the attic.
I thought it was impossible for someone to be up there for a long period of time because the structure isn't stable enough to hold someone that long. After about a minute of shrugging it off, I heard it again. Three loud bangs in a row. It was as it someone was knocking on the wall as hard as they could. This time it only paused for a second and then the three knocks became present again.
I hurried up downstairs to my brother to ask him if he could hear it. I couldn't believe it, the noise was so loud that we could hear it from the basement. It couldn't have been construction because the sound was fainter downstairs than upstairs.
My brother started to get spooked from the noise and called my dad. The sound continued until my dad got home and he went up to check the attic. No one was up there and he shook it off to be an animal.
To this day, I know what I heard and I know that it's not possible for an animal to make that kind of noise. After a while, my dad was able to convince my brother that it was an animal; however, I know that it wasn't. I also know that it wasn't construction because I later found out that no work was being done at the time the noises occurred. I'm not sure what or who it was. I just know they definitely made their existence known.
