This incident didn't happen in the house but in the garage while we were coming home one night. Our apartment was the second floor of the house. You had to go through the garage to get to both our apartment and the one on the first floor. When you walk into the door at the front of the garage, directly to your left about 5ft ahead of you is the door for the first floor apartment. If you go about 3ft past their door and turn a corner (the garage is kind of L shaped because the bottom left corner of the garage is part of the bottom floor apartment) there are stairs leading up to the top floor. The stairs are about 2ft across, just wooden planks with spaces between them going up the side of the wall, nothing in between them and no hand rail. The stairs go up one wall about 10ft, then at the corner of the walls there's a small landing about 3ft by 3ft. You turn a 90 degree angle and the stairs go up one outer wall about another 5ft, make another 90 degree angle with the next corner, go up 3 steps then you reach a landing right outside of our apartment door.
This is the last one and by far the most frightening. Me, my roommate Liz, our friend Jeni had just gotten home from supper. It was about 6 or 7 in the evening. We went into the garage and turned the corner to go up the stairs. Liz was already up on the landing opening our door. Me and Jeni were on the first set of stairs almost to the first landing. There was a light outside the bottom floor apartments door (so around the corner from where we were) and at the very top by our apartment door but none on the stairway so the stairway was very dark but not pitch black. Me and Jeni were on the stairs, she was just stepping onto the small landing on the first corner and I was directly behind her. As we were walking I looked to my right and from under the stairs (the small landing to be exact) this face came out and up at me very quickly. It was just white and blurry with black spot for eyes and the mouth, which was open. It was terrifying. It felt very angry and like it was trying to scare us. Jeni did not see it. I screamed and pushed her up the stairs and then wouldn't go back out by myself.
We went and got a flashlight we went back down and looked under the stairs but we didn't see anything.
