This encounter was told to me by my sister, Anna. She had a friend named Julie that confided in her that strange things were happening in her home. Julie and her husband had moved in one year before.
They had two children, Miles who was five and Sean who just turned one.
Julie said that she and her husband were hearing noises at night. At first they ignored it. Putting it off to the house being old. But then things quickly got worse. The noises happened more often. Things flew off tables, and Miles began having night terrors.
Julie wanted to get someone to come in and figure out what was going on, but the husband refused. Didn't believe in things like that. Not knowing what to do she waited it out. Two weeks later Julie was home alone, the kids were in bed, and her husband had to work until 1 am. Too scared to be alone she asked my sister, Anna, to stay with her.
My sister noticed that Julie was close to tears, and asked her if she was alright.
She shook her head no.
She said Miles would sometimes stare at nothing. That he was too scared to go into the kitchen were most of the activity was and he would stand outside Sean's room at night. When she asked Miles why he was standing in his baby brother's doorway, he said, he was protecting Sean from the bad man.
When she asked what bad man? He said, "The one who throws things." The hair on the back of her neck stood up.
She asked him, "Do you see the bad man?" He nodded his head, and pointed at the corner in the hall. She went pale. "I didn't know what to do so I turned Miles around and put him back to bed." My sister asked Julie when that happen. She said "Last night."
Both women heard noises for hours and my sister's water bottle flew off the table twice. My sister said it gave her the creeps.
It was 1:30 when Julie's husband came home. She went to check on the kids as my sister gathered her things to leave. Both my sister and Julie's husband heard a scream. Both of them ran to find Julie standing in the doorway to Sean's room. They all were looking at something that was hovering near the baby. It seemed to float back and forth in front of the crib. Then it looked at them and it disappeared. Julie's husband quickly grabbed the baby and and the family left for the night.
Julie's husband finally let someone in to find out what was going on. They were told that the poltergeist in the kitchen was someone who had died there at least 30 years ago. He was an old man that was named John. He was angry. And in life as well as death was not a nice man.
The also said the woman they saw in the baby's room was protecting the baby from the other spirit. She was of no danger to them, as to who she was they could not say, just that she meant no harm. My sister asked about Miles seeing this man. They told them sometimes young children can see spirits.
The family move three months after that.
