So, I wanted to share this experience from when I was around 7 years old. It's not a very eventful story, but it is still my experience. I used to be friends with this girl, we're going to call her Kristen just for the sake of privacy, and because I am not close with her anymore.
Kristen and I were about the same age at this point years ago, and we lived only about two blocks from each other. We would hang out at each others houses during the weekend, often alternating houses every other weekend. Well, this one day I was over at Kristen's house, playing of course like normal 7 year old girls do. And on this day Kristen's family was expecting some company from New Mexico, where her family was from. Of course, little awkward 7 year old me, stayed inside once their family did actually arrive. Take note that I was, in fact, the only person in their house at this time, I was sitting on an ottoman that was out in their living room, close by their front door. I heard a familiar sound coming from in their kitchen. It sounded as if their sink had mysteriously turned on while no one, except for me, were inside the house. Of course, I was in fact very curious, much like any other child would be.
I stood up, and made my way to the threshold of their kitchen. I peered into the room, and my eyes and ears were automatically drawn to their kitchen sink. The sink was mysteriously, turned on. No, I was not imagining this sight. I still remember this day as if it was yesterday. The sink ran for another good 10 seconds, and, right in front of my eyes, the handles turned, which then shut off the faucet, much like somebody was standing there, and just turned off the sink like it was a normal thing. Except, no one was there. I immediately rushed outside to tell Kristen what I had just witnessed in their Kitchen, and she had explained to me that it was just their ghost. Kristen said this as if it was a normal thing, and then continued to explain to me that herself, and her mom had witnessed things such as this event that I had witnessed. Her mom much of the time would stay up later at night while her daughter Kristen and her son were in bed asleep. At night, she could hear footsteps going up and down their stairs all night. Her mom had suspected the spirit was a child, based on how the footsteps were very childlike. Now I for sure know that this event could not be scientifically explained, based on how the handles of the sink physically turned the faucet off.
This was one of the first paranormal experiences that I had encountered, and it certainly was a memorable one. Kristen and her family do not live at this house anymore, but the house still stands, and as far as I know, quite a few families have lived there since she has since moved out. Whether the amount of tenants that have moved in and out of the house over the years been connected to paranormal events taking place in the house, I am not for certain. Although I would be very much interested to know the history of this house, and whether there were any deaths that occurred on or near the property/house.
