This is an update from my previous story, College Entity. You can read that here if you're interested: http://www.yourghoststories.com/real-ghost-story.php?story=23036
If you're not interested in reading all that, the summary is that I'm in a college dorm with a roommate. I've felt an oppressive feeling in the room, my roommate has randomly found the room freezing when I find it stuffy, a hot pad was thrown from across the room to my desk when my roommate and I made a joke about a ghost, I felt a hand grab my arm when I was laying in bed, my laptop acts only glitchy in the dorm room, I've felt a presence by my bed watching me, and my roommate saw someone rummaging at my desk when I was still in bed.
This entity seems to go back and forth between being active and in-active for a while. I've started to feel a presence right behind me when I sit at my desk at college, as if someone is looking over my shoulder. This has creeped me out multiple times, but I convinced myself that I was imagining it due to the other activities in my room. But, after making my last post, I've changed my mind.
In my room, if you sit at my desk, you can't see underneath my lofted bed unless you move over to the doorway or my roommate's side of the room. It's vice-versa for my roommate.
I wrote and submitted my previous post outside of my dorm room due to the feeling of being watched. But, after it was posted, I convinced myself I was imagining it. I was responding to a comment on it one day when I felt the presence move, as if it was walking past me. My two hot pads, and three boxes of tea were thrown at the back of my desk, only stopping after I closed my laptop and moved away from my desk. From my new position, I should have been able to see someone under my bed, but no one was there. Since then, I only returned to the website to reply to a comment when I was outside my room. I'm only posting this story now because I'm at home for a break, otherwise there's no way I would go on this website at school with this spirit hanging around.
What's also noteworthy is that our door suddenly started acting weird. We would lock the door, but it would somehow unlock itself and slowly open on its own. We even had a service person come and look at it, but they couldn't find any reason for why this would be happening.
Another day, all the screws on our window screen came off and our screen partly fell off. It would have certainly crashed if we didn't keep our heavy curtains closed all the time. Again, we had a service person come and investigate, but they could find no reason for why all the screws suddenly came out. My roommate and I don't even have a screwdriver in the room, so neither of us could have done this as a joke.
About a month ago, I had to get up at 6 on a Saturday for a project. As I was up and getting ready, I clearly heard a woman's voice whisper my name. This creeped me out, partly because it came from under my bed, but also because the voice sounded nothing like my roommate. I also turned around when I heard my name being whispered and looked directly at my roommate in bed, but she was not moving her mouth and clearly in a deep state of sleep. I was in the room for another forty-five minutes and I heard nothing else and saw no sign of movement from my roommate.
After this though, there was no activity until recently. Our door was working normally and everything. I rarely felt the spirit standing by my desk, but just to be safe, I still avoided this site.
But, everything changed about a week and a half ago and this was probably the creepiest thing to happen in the room yet. My current roommate and I are rooming together next year as well, in a dorm where a historical figure once lived. The historical figure (I'm avoiding naming them since I'd rather people don't know the specific college I'm at) didn't die in this dorm, but some people have claimed to see them there over the years. My roommate had jokingly said to me about two hours before I climbed into bed that maybe this historical figure would visit us next year.
I had just climbed up into my bed and my roommate had just left to shower. She left her desk light on, which illuminates the whole room so I can still see things from in my bed. I was adjusting my alarm clock and had yet to take out my contacts. All of the sudden, I felt a hand tightly grab my arm and a female voice said "Do you believe?" before letting go. There was no one in the room (I looked under both beds while I was still in my bed, and I even got up to check every inch of our room personally) so there's no explanation for the voice or the hand. The question was asked somewhat aggressive and sounded like the voice that had previously whispered my name.
Now, I'm not sure what they meant by "Do you believe?" Maybe they were asking if I believed in ghosts. I think that maybe they were asking if I believed that this historical figure is a ghost on campus. I'm leaning more towards this because the spirit had been inactive until my roommate made the joke about them contacting us. Still, the event creeped me out a ton.
I'm not interested in getting rid of the spirit at this point. I'm partly worried that any attempts to get rid of it will anger it. My roommate and I also have another six weeks left after this break ends so I'll be out of that room soon. The odd thing though is that this entity seems focused solely on me. I've experienced it grabbing me twice now and my roommate remains untouched.
Does anyone have any ideas about why it's interested in only me? I've never answered it on the two occasions it has spoken, I try to ignore it, and I avoid doing things that make it throw objects.
It might be a kindness to the next resident to do a bit of a cleansing on your way out. A recent op (Goggzy) mentioned a method his paranormal investigative group uses of a meaningful 'you need to leave' discussion with the clown paired with burning salt, which Ladydarke explained quite eloquently.
