Not so long ago, I lived with my boyfriend, B. The house was built in the early 80's and to my knowledge, had none of the typical events that would cause paranormal activities. I have recently moved from the home in which these events took place and am no longer experiencing this. It was however, very unnerving when it happened over a period of four to five years.
There was a corner of the basement that always creeped me out. I saw a black mass there on several occasions. It was not transparent but appeared solid and seemed to suck the light from the surrounding area. It did not expand or contract in size. Sort of like a black storm cloud somehow captured in a finite space. I also saw this thing move past the upstairs doorways - always in doorways, right?
I got the distinct feeling it was connected to the voices. Not just any voices, but OUR voices...
The first time this happened, I was alone except for Luke, my dog. I was painting in the bedroom at the end of the hall. I heard the door open and close and thought "awesome, B is home early". While I put down my paint brush, Luke went toward the front door, as he usually does when B comes home. So, I'm walking down the hall and hear B say "hi", just as he does. But, when I get to the room, no one is there. Just Luke, wagging his tail and looking excited like he does when B comes home...WEIRD. It was several hours before B came home, at the normal time.
Over the next few years, I hear B's voice on many more occasions when he is not there. It sounded exactly like him and said things he would say. Usually just single words, "hi" or "hey" or even my name. B has a very deep, smooth and distinctive voice and this thing copied it perfectly.
Finally, I tell B I've heard "talking" in the house, WITHOUT mentioning it has his voice. And he says he's heard it too several times and - get this - it sounds just like me! So now I know he won't think I'm crazy and share the whole story with him. I find that his experiences are very similar to mine.
HOW CREEPY -What sort of thing does this and why?
Maybe this thing was trying to put us at ease (big fail), but to what end?
How long did it take for you/B to come home after B/you had heard the voice?
