This is my third submission, currently about where I have lived the last two years. West Virginia has a lot of spirit activity. I rent an apt in a old house built in 1930. The house has 4 apt units. My apt is upstairs and is a small 2 room efficiency. My bedroom leads to the attic upstairs but is blocked off. Most of the apt is modern except for the old thick doorways which must have originally been bedrooms leading to other bedrooms.
It all started last March 07'. I had lived there for about 7 months with nothing strange at all. It was quite nice, for a change! I was pregnant at the time and was relaxing watching t.v. In the bedroom. From my bedroom, a small hallway leads into the kitchen. I felt a presence appear in the hallway. Seconds later, I heard music. I had kept an old music box in the kitchen but hadn't wound it up in years, literally. It just sat there collecting dust.
At first, I wasn't sure what the music was because the t.v. was a little loud. I muted the t.v. after a minute, and walked into the kitchen. Sure enough, the music box was playing and after a few seconds more, it stopped. I smiled feeling as if I had a visit from my deceased mother. Immediately, I called my aunt and told her about my experience.
Days later, I had forgotten about what happened until I was on the phone with her again and the music box began playing. This time I had a witness and I didn't feel like a crazy ghost-attracting lady. She heard the song and identified the song strangely enough being a musician. It played for the longest time and we giggled on the phone together. Someone was visiting, for sure.
Later that summer, my landlord was making major repairs to the house. Days after the work began, I would wake up in the middle of the night and heard long rapping or knocks. I started to hear voices when I walked into the apt as if a conversation was going on. And at night, I would hear a baby whimper or cry in the distance even though my newborn was fast asleep. Strange things happened and I read when major repairs or restoration is done to a house, spirit activity will happen.
It's an old house and has seen a lot of occupants - good energy and bad energy.
