My family and I came to live to North Carolina in February 2004, used to live in a big old house in Elkin. However due to personal reasons we wanted to move closer to Statesville, so we started looking for homes in the area and we got to Olin loop, about 20 minutes away from Statesville.
There were not that many houses there at the time it was a new neighborhood with new houses. The house we decided to live in was still in the process of being built.
The fall came and finally we moved into that house. We were so happy. It was a brand new house, new life, we would meet new people. Until one October night. I remember looking out the window and would see something running down the road back and forth. I thought it could be some crazy neighbor, I checked outside and nothing was there. This was just the beginning of many strange things that happened in that house.
One night I remember I was at home watching movies in my room, my parents were outside the neighbors' house and suddenly I heard as if someone was outside knocking on the door. Again there was no one, no wind, nothing.
As time passed I got used to this stuff happening. There were days when I had to go to sleep early, if not I would have trouble sleeping. I would hear noises outside my house as if someone were running around the house, throwing glass bottles at the house. I would hear someone or something was under the house scratching something, which of course was crazy because we had no basement.
Sometimes me and my brothers would sit and talk about it, they too had their experiences in that house. My mom would see small creatures jumping on her bed, and at times there were noises in her bathroom, the doors would close out of nowhere.
I remember at times I would just go to sleep to the living room since I felt safer there than in my room. Maybe because it was closer to my parents' room. But even there at times I would see ghostly figures staring at me.
I always thought to myself why here? If this house was brand new when we got it, why would it be haunted? I guess I will never know what was the deal there. As of now I am living in a different house, totally different area.
