To begin my story I must say that I live in a downstairs, two bedroom apartment. And we have been living here for eight months. As soon as we moved in my husband became friends with the neighbors in the apartments that surround ours. All the neighbors have lived here for a very long time (years) and they all know each other.
So one night, my husband was outside talking to his friends, he comes in and starts telling me that our apartment had been vacant for a very long time. And every family that did move in only lasted a month or so. And I'm thinking to myself "So what". Well our neighbors say that our apartment is inhabited by a demon that manifests itself to children and women. But I have not seen anything and the only thing that I do remember is on our second night here the faucets in the tub turned on by themselves.
Now my husband is very much into ghost stories and movies. And I have to say that since I have known him he has always seen and heard things. One Saturday night the kids and I decided to go to bed early. My husband decided to stay up and watch movies by himself. The next day he began to tell me that he kept hearing thumping on the ceiling and footsteps. Now that is normal due to the fact that we live downstairs. So he just figured it was our neighbor Rick walking around and going on about his business. But around 12:30am he saw the headlights of a car pulling up (our living room window faces the parking lot) and he peeked and saw that it was Rick pulling up with his family. So who was making the noise?
We have a five year old son and a two year old daughter that share a room next to ours. Through out our time living here he always says that he hears knocking at his door. It's weird because we don't hear the knocking. My son says that when he hears it he opens his eyes and say "Who is it?" but nobody answers. And this happens all the time too. So we tell him it's his dad knocking to make sure he's ok. Now my son said "Remember daddy the other night when you knocked on my door and I got scared and you started laughing?" I am going to be honest and say that I'm a scardy cat and before us telling him it was his dad he would always come into our bed in the middle of the night because he was scared. I wonder what can it be and why my daughter doesn't cry or wake up at night like he does? Can it all be in his head?
There have been other little things happen to us but I will write about them later. I am just looking for answers and I know that no one can answer them but please let me know what you think. I'm starting to get a little freaked out now. Thanks for reading...
