We just bought a house at the end of March and we have been having some odd things happening. A couple days after we moved in my kids windows were open the next morning after we know we shut them before bed. The screens were still in place and the back gate leading to their windows was still latched.
My middle son who is 14 started hearing noises in hall at night. A little girl counting, she counted to eight and stopped and someone walking in the hall.
I have a pocket door for my bathroom in my room, I went in my room to use the bathroom to my knowledge no one was home. My husband had left for work early that morning, my oldest was at a friends and I had just gotten back from taking the other two to school. The door was shut and I could see the light was on from the cracks. I tried to slide it open but it was locked, I knocked and asked if someone was in there, no response. Then I panicked a little thinking my older son had come home and something happened like he slipped and hit his head. I called his name, no response. So I went to get a flat object to turn the lock. I opened the door and nobody was there. This experience bothered me because I used the bathroom right before I went out the door and I know I didn't shut the door and I definitely did not lock it from the outside.
The next experience was getting up for work, 4:45am, my bedroom door is straight down from my youngest son's room, and I could see this black foggy mass passing in front of his toy drawers. It's one of those rubbermaid plastic drawers you get from walmart. It was about three feet in height and no form at all, and it moved super slow. I just stood there and watched it go through and it either disappeared as it went into the wall or it went through to the other room. I look for it all the time now but haven't seen it since.
The next event I am having a lot of trouble wrapping my brain around. I was laying on my bed paying Bills, I had my phone, the bills, and a pen. I was on the phone with the automated system and realized I needed the checkbook. The checkbook was in the file cabinet on the other side of the room. I got up off the bed with only my phone in my hand and walked across the room. I was almost to the cabinet when the pen that I left on the bed hit me in the back of the head. I turned and looked at the pen that had fallen at my feet and asked out loud, "Did you just hit me with a pen? That's not cool!" I measured it, the pen flew about 12 to 13 feet. It didn't hurt but it was a solid hit. I don't understand this at all, it boggles my mind!
The next thing may be a live human person. I was making my coffee in the kitchen at 5am. I use only the light under the microwave because the main kitchen light is too bright before coffee. Coffee is done and I am shaking my creamer bottle and I look out the kitchen window to see a man in my driveway a few feet away looking at me. I couldn't make out facial features but it was still dark, he was very small and kind of felt more like 12 year old size and all in black. We both stood there for a few seconds staring at each other, he didn't move a muscle. Then I decided I should catch him. I bolted for the door coffee creamer still in hand and ran out, nothing nowhere, not a sound of running feet either. I told my husband about the man and we decided to get a ring doorbell for a little more security. I am going to assume he was not a ghost because it's the live ones you really have to watch out for, but there is something about the encounter that just doesn't feel right, I don't know if it was the way he looked, his size, I'm just not sure.
The last event my son told me about this morning. He was laying in bed last night, and his closet door which was open about two feet closed. It is the type that slide. He told me, on a previous occasion it opened and then closed about the same distance. I checked the doors and they don't slide super easy so I don't believe it to be gravity, wind currents, or anything like that, I had to use some pressure to make them move.
So we have lived here about a month and a half and I am wondering what's going on, we did have a little girls disembodied voice at the other house, she said hello and mom to me, but I don't know if it's the same girl that was counting, and maybe she followed us. I don't feel threatened at all, but I would like to know who is here.
