My family and I live in a university campus. My father is a professor and we had to move to a house that's near the campus. The problem is the house. We moved here almost four years ago.
The first creepy happening occurred about a month after we moved here. I am a super bookworm and I was reading in my room and I had a feeling of being watched. I felt like someone was watching me from my doorway. At first I ignored it but it wouldn't go away, I knew I was alone in the room. Finally, I had to look but there was no one there. I didn't go away. I finally had to go downstairs because I was getting really scared.
I wanted to tell my mom but I decided against it. She wouldn't believe me. The feelings of being watched continued. Then there was something even more weird- my door would open on its own.
It would happen a lot and most of the time there was no wind. It happened at night too and that is when I would get really freaked out, I just pulled the covers over my head and tried to sleep. The weirdest thing is that it would happen only to my bedroom door, no other door in the house. It was driving me insane, but there was nothing I could do about it. I even considered trying to talk to whatever was causing it but I didn't have the courage.
Then, three months after our arrival things started disappearing. I would lose things like hairpins, the remote and pencils. Anyone can lose track of stuff like that but I was sure I had left them in a table or my bed. And then I would go off looking for them only to find them where I left them five minutes later.
It continued until the summer when my cousin, Maria, came to visit me. We get along really well and I told her everything that had happened. She said she thought it was ghosts. It was reasonable, I had thought of that but I really wanted to make sure I wasn't letting my imagination take over, my parents are so scientific and they are always saying to find a logical explanation before considering to the paranormal; they say that to my aunt who is a great believer in this things. I told Maria that and the ghosts must have heard-that night I was convinced my imagination had nothing to do with it.
Maria and I were talking in my room before we went to bed. And then the door started to open, I was used to that. I got up to close it and just as I was reaching for the knob it closed again, on its own.
Maria freaked out but I decided to stay calm and I assured her it was only the wind, but there was no wind. I did calm her down. I think the ghosts got mad because that night I was awakened by Maria's screams. She had a nightmare. She dreamt that someone was murdering her in my room. Then I really started getting scared but I didn't show it. There were no more disturbances that night.
After that it stopped for two years. I thought they were gone, that they had given up trying to scare me. But now they're back or it's back. And this time I tried to stay calm to make them go away again but it is not working.
It started to come back in June a week before summer vacation. I was at the computer and I felt like someone was touching my hair. I looked behind me and there was no one. Sometimes I feel a hand in my shoulder or my arm.
A week ago my little sister was playing with her stuffed animals in her room. I was baby sitting her because my parents were out visiting some friends. She put one stuffed animal on a chair, the stuffed animal fell off, but it landed about three feet away from the chair. I picked it up and put it back, it was thrown again. This time harder, I picked it up and placed it on the bed. I was getting really scared, this had never happened before, but I said nothing.
My little sister was curious to find out if this would happen again so she put it on the chair again, but nothing happened. Instead, a doll fell from a shelf. We ran out of the room and we stayed outside playing with a ball until my parents came home. That was about two o'clock and my parents didn't come back until five.
I want to tell my parents but they wouldn't believe me. My dad is a mathematician and my mother is a chemist they base everything on science. If I told them they'd probably send me to a psychologist. My sister is only four years old, she is amused by it. I don't think she realizes how weird it is.
This stuff has continued and I feel watched sometimes. I want to get rid of them. Can anyone help me?
