I believe I was 7 or 8 when this happened. I am 16 now and still don't understand how or why this has happened and I have been studying the paranormal since this happened. This is my story.
My uncle (in the Marines) gave my dad a really long and very big knife, which he no longer needed or wanted. My dad gladly took the knife, but stored it up on top of the cabinets so none of us children would get it and hurt ourselves.
As soon as we got the knife, odd things started to happen. Bowls would fall out of the cabinets, all the TV's in the house would turn off or on randomly. My dad, being the huge non-believer he is, shrugged it off as power problems with the breaker. Soon I started to hear and see shadows all over the room (as I write the TV. And lights are flickering on and off).
Then one winters night as I got up to get a drink from the bathroom, I heard a voice say "Get back to bed NOW!" I did not know the voice and didn't know where it was coming from. Being just a small child and being very afraid of the dark I ran back to bed and covered my head with my blanket.
In the morning I awoke to hear my mother screaming. The knife was on the floor, with my uncles picture wrapped so tightly around the handle, the imprint of the knifes handle were on the photo. My mom ran from room to room making sure nothing was stolen and making sure everything was still locked.
She got up on a chair to get the knifes case down and to see how much the dust had been unsettled. The dust was still perfectly on the box. It had not been touched. She screamed again and asked me if I heard anything that night, because she thought she had heard a strange voice. I told her I had and she woke my dad to see she take on it. He (of course) said we were just being stupid and blamed me for doing the act.
The house was a trailer house that used to belong to my great grandmother that we moved onto a piece of land. She was the only owner of it before us. Now I'm just wondering, why, and how it happened.
