No Open Curtains


I had a friend come to visit about 4 weeks ago, and he stayed in a hotel in Kingsbury, North London. I live on the other side of London so I decided to stay with him, so I didn't have to take the long journey home on the tube late each night.

The room being in the attic was small with a double bed on high, because it was above the lift shaft, and you had to climb up a few stairs to get into bed, it was surrounded by a wooden barrier so you didn't fall out.

We had had a couple of drinks and were stayed up late catching up on gossip and old memories, it had been a lovely day outside (unusual for English weather) and being the attic, it was very hot.

It must have been around 2 in the morning, when my friend fell asleep due to all his travelling, I sat up watching telly for a little while, but decided to turn it off and go to bed myself.

I remember lying there, thinking I am never going to sleep as it was really so hot, too hot to get under the covers, so I decided to open the window a little further and move the curtains and net curtains out of the way so we can get some cold air straight through. I switched off the light and climbed up back on the bed and laid my head down to get some sleep.

Suddenly, I saw a light from the corner of my eye, and then without warning the curtains and nets closed-ON THEIR OWN! I kept seeing lights flying round the room, but I wasn't scared like I usually can be. I lay there watching them, and finally drifted off to sleep.

The next day I didn't mention anything about it to my friend, but the next night I made sure the curtains were kept closed.

That's what happens when you had a couple of drinks and stay up late on an unusually warm night. 😉 😆

well ghost_hunter, I don't find it hard to believe. Not all people are scared by the abnormal. Maybe wendymneil123 isn't scared easily, just like me. I know I've only posted one story on here, but I have many to share.

Wendy I believe you seen the orbs floating around in your room. Maybe the reason you werent scared was because you felt that they were harmless. I mean hell, its not as bad as having seen dark lurking shadows with red eyes and all. God bless
