I have lived in my house in Cypress, Texas for a little more than year and a half but everything began happening a year ago. It all started with my daughter (9 years old at the time) and I sitting on the couch one evening. She looks at me and says "Mom, can I sleep with you tonight?" I told her she was too old and should sleep in her bed.
She had tears in her eyes, so I asked her why. She was embarrassed to say but after some encouragement she said, "I see a dark figure in my room." I ask where in her room she sees it, she says at the end of her bed. In hopes of alleviating her fears I tell her maybe it's the "Wizard of OZ" characters in the large picture that hangs on the wall. She says, "No mom, it's not the picture because I can't see the picture through the dark figure." Chills ran through my body... Of course I let her sleep with me that night.
The next night I put my daughter to bed in her room and went in the other room to fold laundry. About 15 minutes later I turn around, my daughter is standing there, pale, tears down her cheek begging to sleep in my bed again. She tells me there is something in her room, she feels and hears it coming up to her while she is lying down. She describes it as like it's breathing on her and smelling her. From that night on, with the exception of her friends spending the night, she sleeps with me.
Not long after that my son, 12 at the time, has his own experience. While coaching my daughter's soccer practice my son stayed at home to finish his homework. He calls me scared, wanting me to come home. I am worried because he never gets scared. He said while sitting at the dining room table something pushed on the back of his head, twice. He turned around and nothing was there on both occasions. I calmly tell him that practice was over in 5 minutes and I would be on my way and that he will be okay. I mention for him to let the dog in the house to give him company and make him feel more comfortable.
About a month later I come home from work finding both my kids bundled up in the same blanket holding each other while sitting on my daughters bed. I asked if they were cold, even though it wasn't cold in the house. They said no, they were scared. I asked my son what happened. He told me he heard a noise in my room and went to see what caused it. When he walked in my room he saw a dark figure in my room. He said it turned to "walk" away and got smaller and smaller until it disappeared.
A couple weeks later it happened again. This time when he went in my room to see what caused a noise he saw the black figure again. This time it was peeking out of the doorframe of my bathroom went slowly back in there and was gone.
From time to time, even now, my dog will get very scared, start shaking, growling and barking, but I would find nothing. When she acts like that she is afraid and won't go into the room where she is directing her attention. Sometimes it's the living room, dining room, or foyer.
My first experience in the house was about 4 or 5 months ago. It was in the afternoon and no one was home but my dog and myself. I am on the couch when I hear a noise like something fell in the area of my kids' rooms. My dog jumps up out of her sleep and runs over to the source of the noise. At the doorway to the hall she stops, jerks back with her tail between her legs, and runs back to me, shaking. My immediate thought is did someone just break into my house? But if that was the case my dog would have barked and most likely attacked.
So just in case I grab a big knife from the kitchen and my dog by the collar, I had to practically drag her with me, to see what caused the noise and her fear. I checked my daughter's room, my son's room and their bathroom and saw nothing. On second look of my daughter's room I noticed one of her pictures had fallen off the wall but the back was still hanging, the frame and picture are what fell. Now my dog wouldn't have been scared about the picture falling because that happened before she went to investigate something in that room scared her after the fact.
A few months ago while getting the dog some food out of the garage my son was startled. I asked him what the problem was, he said he saw a dark figure taller than me standing next to me for a moment while I opened the door to the garage.
About two months ago while in my bathroom standing in front of the mirror fixing my hair I turn my head towards the doorway to my room and a white mist shot by real fast at eye level. Of course I was startled and jumped.
Last month and the month before the same thing happened. While in bed at night laid back and reading I felt something put pressure on my foot towards the end of the bed. It was enough pressure both times that if felt like someone sat on my foot and the weight of it pulled on the bed some. I set my book down to see what it was and saw nothing. I was very scared but couldn't do anything but go back to reading, hoping to keep my mind off of what just happened.
Last Saturday some friends of mine came over for some "ghost hunting". One of them has begun to do that on a regular basis back in Florida. He brought a video camera, digital camera, a recorder, and a K2 meter. We had some results: spikes in the K2 meter, intelligent response with the K2, noises, drop in room temperature, an EVP, and someone being touched twice. I knew what my kids and I have been experiencing is real but I feel better that others have had experiences as well.
I will write on the details of that night in another story.
