In 2003 I had a girlfriend who had just moved into a manufactured house. I pretty much lived with her. My life was miserable at the time (just to add). As the weeks went by she told me that she thought that the house was haunted, that she kept hearing noises and seeing things out the corner of her eyes. I just chalked it all up to her over active imagination. As more weeks went by I started to believe what she was saying. The house just seemed like it was somewhat active. I too was hearing these noises at night and seeing things in my peripheral vision, more so then at my parents house or just most anywhere else.
But yet I was still skeptical until a series of 3 nights, all 3 nights in a row. It wasn't unusual for me to stay with her 4 and 5 nights in a row but something was different about these 3 nights. We headed for bed around 10:00PM on a Tuesday night. For some reason this night, I was having trouble sleeping, my girl was asleep in minutes. At around 11:00PM I began to hear a very faint but strange noise. It sounded as if someone was slamming a very big metal door shut and open shut and open over and over again. You know like one of those big dungeon doors from an old medieval castle. Not unlike someone smashing a sledge hammer against a steel beam. Very strange I thought but very faint, as if in the distance. I tried to ignore it but it wouldn't go away and as the time was passing it was slowly getting louder as if it was approaching me or something. About an hour passed and I was relieved that it went away. I told my girlfriend about it the next morning but she had heard nothing. Wednesday evening more of the same, we went to sleep around 10:00 PM but yet I still found it hard to sleep and the noise persisted this night too but was noticebly louder than the night before. I even awoke my girlfriend to ask her if she could hear this strange sound and she looked astonished, she had no clue what I was talking about. I was thinking that I was starting to go crazy or something. It was strange because the noise only persisted with my eyes closed and would slowly get louder and dissipate within about an hour. I thought maybe it was all some weird dream or something, I didn't know what to think.
Then came Thursday evening as we were heading for bed I became sort of apprehensive about trying to sleep but I went along to bed anyways with my girl. Around the same time as the nights before. At first I was relieved that this night seemed quiet. But then it started, this night was different then the first two. The noised started significantly louder this time. The noise pierced my ears. The noise was so loud that it made my whole head physically rattle everytime it repeated itself. This time I opened my eyes and the noise continued louder and louder. My ears began to hurt very intensely with each clash of metal. How could this be I thought, how could she still be sleeping, it's as loud as a freight train. Then I looked out her bedroom door and froze solid. The noise seized. What looked like a small human figure. More of a black mist seemed to dissipate. I woke my girlfriend and explained to her what happened. She looked at me like I was nuts. She had heard nothing.
After this night I never experienced anything like this again at her house. Something about those 3 nights was not right. I know a couple of things though. I wasn't dreaming, that noise actually caused me physical pain (in my ears), something was in the doorway of her room, I never again doubted her when she said she saw or heard something. For the rest of my life I will never forget those 3 nights.
