I would like to start by giving some history on the home. In 1998 I bought a 96 model double wide that was bought new by an elderly couple. The sales agent said that they lived in it for a few months and one of them died and the other was placed in a nursing home. I do not know if they died in the house. The following is my account of some strange happenings.
Our home has three bedrooms and my wife and I decided to make the smallest bedroom into a playroom for our two year old. All was fine for a few months. My wife and I were in the kitchen when we heard our son talking to someone. We went and asked him who he was talking to. He replied that it was Tom and we laughed and said it is an imaginary friend. Day after day he continued to talk and play with Tom. When he would get in trouble and asked why did you do that he would say Tom did it. We decided to move his toys into his bedroom that is right next to the living room to keep a better eye on him. Things improved over the months and Tom was forgotten. The room was used for storage a long time until I decided to make a bedroom/gamer room out of it.
The little room was the warmest in the house so on a cold winter night we decided to start sleeping there. One night we stayed up talking most of the night. When we turned off the lights and laid down it was pitch black. I was dead tired and couldn't go to sleep because something was bumping my back under the bed. I finally asked my wife if she was moving. No, why? Because something is bumping my back under the bed. She said me too. As we start to get up we both see these red eyes look up at us and then turn away like it was walking slowly to the end of the bed. We jump up and turn on the light but nothing is there. I even picked up the bed to look underneath. We were freaked out to say the least. The eyes reminded me of an opossum but even animal eyes do not glow in the dark unless reflecting light and it was pitch black.
Things were fine for awhile but when I was alone I could sense a presence in the room emanating from the closet. I tacked a small nail in the door frame and took off my sterling silver cross necklace and hung it from the nail. Not long after the silver cross turned gold. I have not had any problems since. I had a friend over recently and was telling him this story and he suggested that maybe the cross or the silver itself absorbed whatever was in there. I will never take it down and I also have a keyed doorknob with the key part inside the closet and keep it locked. I have had other instances in the house such as my other story guard ghost if anyone wishes to read. Thanks for reading and please feel free to comment and ask questions
