this story I'm going to tell you all is kind of short but I'll try to make it fit into the limit of words allowed.
From around when I was 7 years of age, every time I went to bed for the night and lay there before sleep I will always here this faint sound coming from the corner of the ceiling. The sound was more of a ticking sound like a clock but without the usual tick tick tick. It was more like tapping frequently as someone would tap on the window/table. This particular sound was annoying. It would go on most of night until I would fall asleep. It would always stop when I sit up to look for it and always would start again when I rest my head back on the pillow.
Other nights it would change locations like in wall beside me. Ceiling by closest doors. And by main door into bedroom. Some nights it would go fast other nights it would go slower. I mentioned it to my father but he just said it was the house cooling down from the hot days. But this sound always happened even in -2 degrees conditions of winter.
So one night I decided to sleep in my brother's room on top of the bunks. The same sound would start up again once my brother falls asleep. It always freaked me out. Even when I went to my mother's house for the night or a friend's. It would appear in the ceiling or walls.
The sound even went to the lounge when I had sleepovers. I don't know what this sound would be as it always stopped when I looked around. The sound stopped shortly before the 7.1 quake of September 4, 2010. Till this day I haven't heard the sound again.
So did anyone else had experience this before? Or am I the only one?
