July 29, 2014 my son woke from a nightmare and asked to sleep in my room, the time was 12:03am. Once tucked in, we began to watch a TV show on Netflix to help both of us get to sleep.
Sometime between 2am and 3am, as we are still watching Netflix through my laptop, a loud beep and flash came from my laptop. The sound was similar to, and if not the same as, the sound it makes when I unplug the charger cable but the flash I can't explain.
As I began to get out of bed to check it out my son suddenly has a high pitch sound ring through both ears and what he described as a popping feeling at the back of his head. It happened so quickly that it was not a health issue so we dismissed it.
As I turned to get back into bed, my cat suddenly started running from room to room. This behaviour has been going on the last few days. I ignore it and lay down and no sooner do I hear a child-like laugh come from the hallway and as I turn to the sound I see a small dark shadow leave the room.
This is not the first time I've heard what sounded like my son late at night to discover he is sound asleep. But this is definitely the first encounter and certainty that a child spirit is in the house. Neither myself nor my son were afraid and I hope this will not be our last encounter.
Past experiences leading up to my certainty that it is a child spirit are loud running in small steps on the second level late at night, hours after my son has gone to bed. What sounds like laughter, and probably actually was laughter in hindsight. Toys in my son's room dropping to the floor while he is asleep and the toy was on a dresser across the room and with the ledge around it; it absolutely could not have just fell off.
And many nights I have felt someone's presence in my room that immediately gives thoughts that it's my son awake but when I get up to check again he's sleeping. My son has also mentioned seeing a child in his room but at the time I chalked it up to his imagination, now I'm not so sure.
