This is my first story on here so bear with me please. This will have 2 experiences in it.
This took place when I was around 8 years old. My sister and I were staying up late because she wanted to draw and I found that cool so I decided to watch her. It was around 12 or 1 in the morning when I decided to go to the kitchen to get a drink.
As I stepped out of our room (directly to the left was my parents' room) I heard my name being called. The voice sounded like my mother but it wasn't her. Her room door was closed and the voice was so close to me and so clear, like she was standing next to me and calling me. The voice sounded like it was telling me not to do something, like sort of a scolding tone. Being young, I forgot about my need of water and went back into my room.
This one took place when I was about 11 or 12 years old and was living in an apartment. It was an old apartment and I lived there all my life and a couple of strange things happened. This is one of them.
I was in my room, sitting on a mattress against the wall writing in my diary. The mattress was placed so that I could see from the beginning to the end of the hall from the door directly in front of me on the other side of the room.
I was busy writing when I heard keys jingling and our main door closing. Thinking it was my dad due to the jingling of the keys (I always heard it when my dad came home) I was going to get up to greet him. When I looked up in to the hallway, I saw a man in a green shirt walking to the dining room, which was at the end of the hallway, in a mere 3 steps or so.
I didn't really think anything of it then. I went to the dining room, because that's where I saw the man go, and looked around. No one was there. I looked in the kitchen and checked the bathrooms and I still didn't find anyone. I asked my mom if dad was home, and she said no. I was surprised. I told her the story and she was shocked too.
When my dad did come home, we told him the story and he said it might've been my grandfather visiting because the man looked exactly like dad from the back. I wasn't scared though. I never am of this kind of stuff. I actually love it.
