There are many stories I want to post here but I will start with my first few experiences with the paranormal.
First: I will write the word "cousin" a lot but they are actually my great-cousins. It's already a little confusing so I tried to make it easier by just writing "cousin"!
I never thought about paranormal stuff much when I was younger and I wasn't really interested in it either. Until that one time I visited my cousins.
To give a little description of their surroundings: they lived in a big house in the middle of a forest surrounded by moor and they had a huge farm there. There were no other neighbors living nearby. They also told me that many years ago another house used to be standing where theirs was now, which unfortunately burned down.
My mom and I were staying there for about four weeks during my summer vacation and nothing happened up until the second week. One of my cousins and I were staying in her room, which was in the attic, listening to music. The room was in complete darkness since we were supposed to be sleeping (we were around the age of 10 back then). We were both staring out of her window at that time, looking at the stars, when all of a sudden a very bright light appeared and filled out the whole window. At first we were in shock and didn't say anything until it was gone. The light only lasted for a few seconds though. Like the little scared kids we were, we ran downstairs to my already sleeping mom and woke her to tell her what happened. She only brushed it off as a "summer lightning" or something like that. This, however, didn't calm us down and we ended up sleeping in the living room that day.
The next day we also told my aunt about the light and she said that something similar happened to her a few weeks ago and that she also heard a loud buzzing sound while the light was there.
After that incident the paranormal activity seemed to increase somehow. Two days after the light in the window, my biggest cousin told us that she lost a bowl in her room. She said that she ate chips out of it and then went into town and when she got back it was gone. At first she accused us (my other cousin and me) of hiding it but we were too scared to go upstairs (her room was also in the attic, right next to the one the first incident happened in) to do that. Later that day she found the bowl. It was in her cupboard underneath her clothing which was balancing on top of it. Nobody knows how it got there.
Another thing disappeared a few days later. One of my tops was gone and later we found it underneath a table, neatly folded.
When being alone in the attic it felt like you were being watched and it was very cold in a few spots of the rooms up there. I never felt comfortable staying there alone for too long.
When my oldest cousin moved out of the house, my youngest cousin got her room in the attic. Nothing spectacular happened except that one time. We all sat in the kitchen eating breakfast when my small cousin came in and said she saw a boy in her room during the night. We all asked what he looked like and what he was doing there because we thought it was a dream. She said that he was looking through her CD's and that he was a little taller than her. She couldn't make out other features. When we asked her what she did when she saw him, she just told us that she went back to sleep.
I wanted to believe that it was a dream but when my oldest cousin told me years later that she also saw a boy in her room a few times, I was kind of convinced that it might be a ghost or something like that. What do you think?
My oldest cousin also told me that she used to try out her Ouija board with her friends sometimes. There are still a few other things that happened in that room particularly. The radio was playing even so no one turned it on. There were also a lot of cold spots in there and sometimes weird smells that I cannot really describe.
The last thing I remember is something my aunt experienced. My cousin's grandma, who was living in a little apartment on the ground floor, died in the house. After the funeral my aunt cleaned the apartment and got all her belongings out. She told me that she heard the voice of their grandma in her head and that she was feeling like she was being yelled at. She got a feeling of dread and was so terrified that she ran out and tripped over a little fence on the grass. She fell but didn't hurt herself that much. She was sure that the grandma wanted to tell her something and later on she found out that her husband was cheating on her.
I don't know what exactly was going on in that house but something definitely was there.
Thanks for reading.
