My name is Mandy and I'm thirteen years old. About a month ago, in the beginning of June my mom and my stepdad bought a mansion in upstate New York. No, not the kind with the towers that you see in movies. This was just a plain old huge house.
It was actually in a whole neighborhood of mansions really far away from the city. The mansion has four HUGE bedrooms upstairs, each one with a bathroom and walk-in closet, a kitchen connected with a dining room, a living room, an office, a gym, and two pools, a big one in the basement and a smaller one in the backyard. It's a little too big for just me, my parents, and my stepsister but I love it.
I spent the first week in my new house decorating my room. Since my mom didn't let me repaint the walls my room stayed gray/blue/green and my closet stayed hot pink. When I was done decorating it looked really cool. It had a huge bed, two nightstands (a black one with a white lamp and a white one with a black lamp) a long black dresser with a plasma TV, a blue rug, a bead curtain instead of a closet door and a sitting area with a small glass table and two zebra chairs.
My first ghostly experience happened the day after I finished decorating my room. I was making my bed when my mom called me downstairs for breakfast. I remember leaving my room, closing the door and heading downstairs with my teacup yorkie puppy Mimi by my side.
Downstairs, I found out that my stepdad and my stepsister went shopping. Since it was still very early, I decided to go up to my room and watch Saturday morning cartoons. When I opened the door I felt like I was going to faint. My room was a mess! My bed looked as if someone had just got up. There was almost no water in my fishbowl. Instead there was water all around it on my glass table. My rug was moved about three feet aside and my giant plant was smashed on the floor. I cleaned up really fast and wondered how this could happen. No one was upstairs. My two German Sheppard's were outside and my yorkie was downstairs. We don't have anymore pets except for a goldfish. And we probably would have heard a giant plant crash to the floor. I'm a very clean person and I don't remember the last time I had a messy room. There are no robberies in this neighbor hood and I have absolutely no idea how this happened.
My second experience happened last week. I was sitting in the living room with my stepdad in the kitchen and my yorkie Mimi on the couch next to me. All of a sudden she jumped off the couch and started barking like crazy at the fireplace. This was very weird because Mimi hardly ever barks and there was nothing by the fireplace. This occurred two more times that day. She also does this when I'm about to fall asleep. She jumps off my bed and starts barking at my closet. Mimi stopped doing this about three days ago, but I'm kind of worried about it.
My last and scariest experience happened yesterday. I was lying in bed wide awake and I couldn't fall asleep. I could hear one of my German Sheppard's barking outside. I also heard someone walking downstairs. I wanted to scream but I couldn't. Then the walking stopped and I was about to fall asleep when I heard laughter. I was so sweaty and nervous that I felt as if my bangs were glued to my forehead. I turned on my television and somehow fell asleep.
I have only been living here for a month and I'm almost scared to heck.
If something happens I will try to submit it.
