A few years ago, I lived in a fairly large house in a town called "Deroche". At the time, I was living with my Mother, step dad, stepbrother and cat. From the day I moved in, I would not be able to fall asleep, I would always feel like someone was in the room with me, watching.
My cat was also acting strangely, it was almost like she was watching someone move around my bedroom. Her eyes would go from one side of the room to another. She would meow very loudly during the night.
It wasn't just my bedroom, the whole house had a strange feeling to it. It is too hard to explain.
So one day at school I casually joked about my house being haunted. That was when one of my friends told me that there was a graveyard a couple blocks away from my house.
I decided to investigate further by asking some more of my friends if there were known spirits in the area. I discovered that there was a teenage African boy who was murdered, not far from my house, when some other boys tied him to the railroad tracks. (note: I do not verify that that story was real in any way, shape or form, it is just what I was told). I tried to search for more clues, but did not find any other stories.
Then, after a few weeks, I'd gotten more used to the feeling of the house, and started getting a few hours of sleep a night, but now I was almost constantly having nightmares (none of which I can remember). It was really starting to bother me, but there was nothing I could do about it.
So, a few days later, I invited a couple of friends over to jump on my trampoline after school. We were jumping around, talking and having a good time when suddenly, I heard a shriek from my friend, she pointed at the basement door, when I looked over, I could see what she was screaming about. The door (which is ALWAYS closed and locked) was opening and closing by itself. We were so freaked, we ran inside and asked my Mom if anyone was down there, she told us that no one had gone down there all day.
Since then I have moved into a different house, but I still wonder what was there...
