It's been a few years since I posted on this site. I moved out of my apartment last April, moving from Texas to Ohio. If you read the entry about my apartment, you'll remember that there was a mystery about me hearing my patio door glass shattering, and the apartment office not telling me about the history of the unit.
Well, a few days before I moved, one of my neighbours told me that ten years before I moved in there was a break-in. The person smashed the patio door glass, and the tenant was shot. He lived and is still alive today, though long moved out of the area, but apparently the event was traumatic enough to leave an impression. Someone commenting on the apartment entry said that's a possibility, and now that I know what happened, I think so as well.
That doesn't explain the rest of my experiences there, however. The face, the tall guy in the trench coat, the knock on the door, the bedroom door slamming scaring my friends. The maintenance worker I asked said no one had ever died in my building, and he'd been working there since the complex was built in 1996, so he'd know. Someone died two buildings away from mine in 2002, but that's the closest he could remember to mine. The complex had 17 buildings and the office in a separate building.
Anyway, where I live here in Ohio, I have two roommates, and there are four rooms in this house. The biggest room in the house is empty, and to be honest all three of us get the creeps just being in it. We can't rent it out because no one who walks in there agrees to stay. I don't know if it's haunted or if the size is just intimidating, but thought I'd throw it out there with this update and see if anyone had any ideas.
There are times when I walk through the front door I heard someone knocking on the wall. I've checked and there's nothing in the room that would hit the wall. In fact, the room is completely empty. Other than the knocking and uneasy feeling, there's nothing to report about the room. Kind of disappointed there's not more activity there, like apparitions or voices, but at the same time at least it's quiet.
