The story I am submitting did not happen to me, it happened to someone I know but they wouldn't submit their story to a site like this and just are too busy.
I am the curious type, so please don't think I'm just posting this to make me look cool or to try and get attention. I am genuinely curious about what she went through. I'd like to know what it means and what she should do.
My friend (We'll call her Abby) has always been the type of person who has had paranormal experiences throughout her life. It's a normal every day thing for her. Abby used to wake up at 3 every night as a child and see a shadowy figure of a boy upside down hitting his head against a window in her house. (Nightmares for me) When a loved one is sick or has died she will dream about them as if they are with her having coffee or something.
Abby is a fashion designer and around October/November she made herself a Halloween costume and there was fabric everywhere. When she looked to grab the fabric she saw a male figure sitting, with knees against chest and she could see the fabric moving in and out around the mouth area. Again she lives ALONE. That incident has happened all of three times and hasn't happened since.
What worries me though is that recently (She's older now mid-twenties) her house has always been "haunted" I guess it stops and starts on and off all the time. It'll be normal for a really long time then out of nowhere it'll flare up again. At one time she used to see a little boy in her closet in her bedroom.
Abby has been hearing knocks in her closet, and she lives alone. They are faint knocks not loud or booming just light mid tempo knocks from her closet. Abby sleeps with the TV on so it's louder than the buzz of the television but softer than the knock you'd use at a friend's house. There's nothing in her closet that could make the noise, she took the doors off years ago so she has more room to work with. All that's in the closet is clothes, mementos and mirrors, nothing to make a knocking noise.
Just recently though she's been hearing the knocking noise and Abby's even walked up to her closet wall and put her ear against it and it sounds like it's coming from in between the walls. On the other side of the closet is her hall closet so it's not like there's something to make the noise in the actual vicinity of the sound.
It's always five knocks, no more no less. I know the story of the three knocks and how it's supposed to represent death is coming, or if you want to bring movies in on it the movies say three knocks is a demon mocking the holy trinity (The Holy Ghost, Father, and Son) but I\'m looking for actuality here.
I realize that it could pipes or something in her home but seeing as how she's seen a little boy in her closet and the knocking went on for 45 minutes up until 3-4 in the morning. The only time it stopped is when she said out loud "Enough, stop it's time for bed, we'll talk tomorrow" right after the knocking stopped. The next day she could her near her closet not in the same spot but within the same area by her closet a soft scratching sound. It wasn't with fingernails because that's too loud almost like with fingertips. She left it alone because it was soft enough that she could go on with whatever she was doing. That night while she was sleeping she was awoken to two hands on the outside of her comforter grabbing her ankles. Abby has never been touched before in her home so she freaked and yelled out "Stop, stop it right now!" Whatever it was let go. Abby thinks it might be the little boy come back to say hi.
All of these things happened at night and in her home in her closet walls. I want to know is she going to be ok, what do the five knocks mean? Should she leave? I am honestly scared for my friend. Is she safe in her home? Could it be the little boy? Or is it the male figure she saw? If someone out there has had something like this happen to you what helped you?
