The storm roared outside. Branches and leaves were scattered all over my backyard. The house was cold and lonely, since my kids were at school and my husband was off at work. I sat at my kitchen table enjoying warm toast and coffee with my dog observing my toast carefully.
I was busy reading the newspaper when all of a sudden I hear heavy breathing on my left ear and feel cold breath on my shoulder. At that moment, my dog ran outside in the rain and started howling. Petrified, I froze. It lasted about 2 seconds and just stopped. My dog came scampering back in wet and cold so I went to go dry him off. I couldn't find an explanation for what had just happened. I shook it off and prepared for an important job interview that would be taking place later that day.
Afterwards, I was on my couch working on my laptop with my kitty asleep next to me. In the hallway, which connects to the living room, I heard loud, distinct footsteps walking towards the living room. I bravely peeked into the hallway to find nothing there. Shocked, I went back to my couch to find my cat hidden inside the fireplace with wide eyes staring into nowhere. Once again, I couldn't find an explanation for what had happened.
Finally, it was time to head to the city for my interview. I attempted to open the door to leave but it wouldn't budge. The doorknob just wouldn't let me turn it. Getting really angry, with all my might I forced the doorknob to turn. It wouldn't even move. I went to go get a hammer and basically attacked the doorknob. It didn't move whatsoever. Only a few dents but that's it. I screamed at whoever was doing this to stop right away and open the door immediately. I tried the door one more time and it opened easily. I was twenty minutes late for my interview.
I got back home around 5. My kids were home playing with our babysitter. I was exhausted. I collapsed onto my couch and had a really weird dream. I dreamt that I was swimming in a fountain with my friend. Millions of black koi fish were swirling at the edge of the fountain going in a circle. They were sucking me in and my friend was staring at me saying "Don't let the Darkness take you! Fight back! The Darkness is trying to take you!".
I woke up sweaty and shivering. It was exactly 6:13 pm. My cell phone was beeping. I checked it and it said: "6 New Voicemail". I checked the first one. The best way to describe the sound was as a static voice speaking in gibberish.
If anyone can give me explanations on anything that happened that day that would be great. Thanks for reading
