Yes, once again, this is about my father.
Brief back-story for those who have not read the previous of my father's encounters: my father lives in a small town in Indiana in a cute, two story, 150 year old house. It is in a state of renovation currently. My dad has a history of being followed by a darker being that seems to enjoy terrifying him every now and again since he was young. A few months ago, a woman starting appearing in his house. She was very transparent at that time and seems to be harmless - seems to be wearing turn-of-the-century clothing.
My father was lying in bed around three weeks ago, reading. My step-mother was in Scotland visiting her family, and the cats were curled up with my father. He hears footsteps on the stairs (which are becoming a daily thing) and decided to keep reading and just ignore them. The footsteps continue the few feet to his bedroom door and he sees a shape in the corner of his eye. He looks up and sees a full figure of a woman, nearly solid. She is wearing a dark, turn-of-the-century style dress and has brown hair, in a bun. She looks to be middle aged. Other than her clothing, she looked quite normal. What he found to be strange is that she was looking in the room, but she was not looking at him. She seemed to be focused behind him.
After about ten seconds, she just dissipates. The cats heard her walk up and were staring at her as well, though they did not seem to react with any sort of fear. Other than being surprised, my dad was not frightened of her. She does not give off any sort of menacing vibe.
This is the first time my father was able to see color and her face.
Fast forward to when my stepmother returns from Scotland, about a week later. They are laying in bed with the cats around 11 at night. They are both reading and relaxing when footsteps start coming up the stairs. The steps, like last time, walk to the door and stop, but there was no apparition involved this time. My stepmother, who previously thought my dad was a bit loony for thinking the house had a visitor, looks at my dad and asks if he heard it too. I believe the direct quote from my father was, "I told you so."
The activity definitely seems to be building in my father's house, but it is not disruptive and apparently the large bangs that used to happen frequently do not happen often anymore.
My sister named her Victoria, mostly because of how her clothing style was described.
I believe that I have convinced by father that next time she comes to visit, he should attempt to have a conversation with her since the activity seems to be centered around where he happens to be. He is also a talented amateur photographer and I may be able convince him to take some pictures, as long as it seems safe to do so. She seems to be very peaceful, despite the early fears of her being somehow connected to the other entity my father has dealt with. We cannot currently figure out if she is residual or intelligent, because both seem to fit. She does seem to purposefully wander around where my father happens to be.
I will continue to give updates on my father's new housemate as I receive them. I am quite happy that my stepmother was able to validate my father's experiences this time. I am looking forward to my next trip to my father's house.
