I haven't had any time to write any stories for you, because I have been busy moving. I moved back to my hometown, Calgary Alberta. Geri and I are so excited to be back.
Now, since we've been home, there have been a few scares. Some time in July, a few weeks after we have been back in Calgary, we went to visit Geri's brother and his girlfriend. We went out for dinner and a movie and basically got caught up on everything we had missed in the city.
When we returned to James's place, we went into the spare room to turn in for the night. Geri and I were almost asleep when we heard the door bell ring.
I got up to see if James was on his way to the door, but he and his girlfriend were fast asleep in the other room. I went to the front window to see who was there... Nobody to be seen.
I came back into the room, looked at Geri and asked, "You heard the door bell right?" She said yes, and said that it was probably some dumb kids trying to piss off the people who were in bed.
I agreed and went to crawl back into bed. At that moment, just before I pulled the sheets over myself, the bell rang again... Only it was 3 times... 3 prolonged rings, as if someone pushed in the button, held it for a moment and then released. Kind of an eerie ring.
I jumped out of bed and sprang for the door to try and catch the annoying little children and tell them to go home before I throat punch them. Once again no one was there.
This is when I became quite annoyed and decided to stand by the door and wait for whomever it was to come back. I waited for about 20 minutes before the bell rang again. When it rang I threw open the door, and to my amazement, no one was there... I stood in the doorway dumbfounded and quite confused. This is when Geri came out to see what was going on.
We decided to wake James to see if he heard the bell ring. He claims he heard nothing and was wondering why we were messing around and making so much noise. James went to the garage to get a screwdriver, so we could disconnect the wires in the doorbell.
It was quiet for the rest of the night, but Geri and I were unable to sleep, obviously.
The next morning James and his girlfriend were gone for work, and Geri and I got ready to go out for the day. Geri was in the shower, and I was sitting in the kitchen reading the paper. The doorbell rang... 6 times in a row. I felt chills run through my body and got up to check the door. When I looked out I noticed the wires were still disconnected from the doorbell. Obviously by this point I'm pretty creeped out. But that wasn't all. When I looked at the bottom of the front steps there were 6 cats sitting on the walkway. Every one of them had their ears pinned back and were growling and hissing. I slammed the door shut and went back inside. The bell rang once more and I heard a growl come from behind me. I booked it to the spare room where Geri was drying her hair and told her to get dressed so we could get the hell out of there.
We had to go out the back door and walk around through the alley and around the block because the cats were still there... Who knows they might have had diseases or something... I don't really care for cat's too much to begin with.
Later that night we called James and told him what happened, and he told us that he always felt funny whenever he was in the kitchen alone. He also mentioned that the last couple who rented the house before them were into witchcraft and seances. That was enough for us, to say the least. James and his girlfriend let the house a few days later and moved into a new house. Nothing has happened yet, which is a good thing.
We're not sure if anyone is renting their old place or not. We drove by a few weeks ago and noticed that a "For Rent" sign was hanging in the window, and the lawn looked as though it hasn't been cut for almost a month... So my guess is no.
Until next time, God Bless
