As I have mentioned in my previous stories we have had many paranormal experiences in our current house but they have mostly been positive/neutral. One of my favourite encounters happened to a friend of ours in our house.
We are VERY close with J. He lives a few streets away from us and is at our place pretty much every day. J knows that I believe in ghosts and that my husband SORT OF believes but J is a total skeptic. He has never seen, felt or heard any kind of entity and has never had any kind of paranormal experience at all (that he is consciously aware of) . We often discuss the paranormal when he is over but we always end up agreeing to disagree. Our discussions can get quite heated but have never turned into a fight or argument.
We had gone away for a few days and had asked J to stop by once a day to feed and play with the dogs and cats. We also invited him to stay at our place if it was easier for him.
One night, J was over at our house relaxing after feeding the animals. He decided to do a bit of a tidy up since he had basically been living at our place for a few days and figured he would help us out. He worked his way around the house and was busy in the kids' room when suddenly the night light switched on by itself (the night light is an LED light that projects thousands of red and green dots all over the room. The dots move in patterns and 'star bursts'). J said afterwards that he thought it was odd but then figured that it was motion activated or on a timer or something (it isn't). He went to turn it off (the off button is an actual button and not an on/off switch - press once to turn it on and once to turn it off). As he turned his back on the light after turning it off, it came back on again. He said that he was getting a little annoyed at that point so decided to just unplug it from the wall and be done with it. Just as he turned his back on the light after unplugging it, the light came back on! He checked the plug and it was definitely still unplugged so there was no reason that the light should be on (it definitely doesn't have any kind of backup battery or anything like that).
J eventually decided to leave it and just close the bedroom door behind him. The light must have turned itself off at some point because we found it off and unplugged when we got home. He only told us about this experience when we got back a day or so later. I had a quiet giggle about it because it was almost definitely one of our ghosts playing with the skeptic. It had probably grown tired of his talk of disbelief and was saying, "You want proof, buddy?". Hahaha.
J still doesn't believe in ghosts and insists that there must be a logical explanation for the light. I agree with him on that point. The logical explanation is: ghosts!
