It was just a normal day for me when I went to my cousin's house to stay for the weekend. I've always known her big house next to the forest was haunted but nothing ever happened to me, so I wasn't bothered by it.
That night when Ashley and I were going to bed, I had to sleep on a mattress on the floor. I was trying to sleep but I felt something crawl across me very quickly. I was filled with fear and jumped to my feet. I just thought it was a rat or something but I was still scared. I went downstairs because I thought it was better to sleep on a couch. My aunt was asleep on one of the couches and my brother was on the other on. I tiptoed to the couch my brother was on scooted him over.
I closed my eyes, hoping I would just fall asleep. It was really hot in the house, I believe it was 80 degrees. Then all of a sudden it got cold. I pulled the blanket up, thinking nothing of it and closed my eyes again. Then that's when I heard the whispers. In the room next to us, the kitchen, I heard two people whispering. It was a wide arch from the living room to the kitchen so I could see who was there. When I lifted my head up to look, I saw nothing in the kitchen. I had goosebumps. I didn't know what to think. I was scared out of my mind. I just laid back down and tried to pretend that nothing was happening. But the whispering only got louder. I knew it was about 2 a.m. I heard a deep man's voice say, "We can't hide them here." Then a woman's voice said, "I don't care what you want." Then the man said, "Hey look over there, she's listening." I was confused and terrified at the same time. I didn't know if I was crazy and hearing things or if these voices were actually there.
I thought they saw me because I heard footsteps come towards me and I nearly peed my pants because of it. I wanted to get up and run to my aunt but I knew she had work in 2 hours so I didn't. I just laid there with my eyes closed listening to their conversation until I fell asleep.
The next day I found out there was tunnels that were blocked off from the basement. I don't know if it had anything to do with the underground railroads but I was fine not knowing anything more than what I did.
