Frightening Night


It's been so long since I've had anything strange happen to me, but on Sunday 07/06/2009, something very frightening happened to me and my friend whilst I was sleeping over his place during the 3 day weekend.

My friend has never experienced anything paranormal in his house until now - though he has only lived in it for about 7 months.

His house is the only house I've been in that has a 'basement' and an 'attic' since not all houses in Australia, Sydney are built with those additonal rooms.

Anyways, obviously with all the horror movies, scary stories about basements and attics I've heard so much about, I wondered if the basement would be spooky. Once I went down there, to my surprise his family had made it into a recreational room - nothing spooky AT ALL! It was like another living room. It was well lit, had nothing spooky about it, and this was the room me and my friend spent most of our weekends in.

Nothing out of the ordinary happened on Friday or Saturday; everything was ok. It was like any other day. But then, while playing an online game in the basement, we heard a noise. We thought nothing of it, since all houses make those 'knocking' and 'tick' noises, but that made us look at the time; 12:00am Sunday.

We decided to head to bed when it struck 2am - Anyways, while we continued to play on the computer, we began to hear whispers. My friend looked at me and I thought maybe it was coming from the game.

My friend turned down the volume and the whispers stopped. Me and my friend starting laughing cause we had realised we were just freaking ourselves out. He turned up the volume again. After a few minutes, the whispers began (Imagine Harry Potter "parcel tongue" - it was like that, whispering). Since we thought it was just the game or something wrong with the speakers - we didn't do anything about it.

But then all of a sudden, there came an "uuh!" That noise made me shudder and my friend jump. I told my friend to just turn the volume lower - he did, but the whispers were still present. My friend turned off the speaker, but the whispers continued...

Me and my friend looked at each other and then to the time on the computer - was about 1:20am? We were getting a little freaked out so we decided to go to bed. When we left the basement, and went out of the kitchen, I swear to god, I saw some black figure flying across the living room, but since it was dark I thought that maybe it was my imagination. We proceeded to head upstairs. Once we got to his bedroom, we felt relief. He was getting into his bed, while I was getting into the mattress provided - While lying down, with my ipod illuminating the room, I asked my friend if he saw anything downstairs. He said he saw something black, but figured it was the curtains in the living room.

That made me feel relieved, since it's his house and he perhaps knew that normal things could look paranormal in the night.

We said our "goodnight" and as I was about to put my earphones on, we heard the most strangest noise. Only way I could explain it was... "BOUNG BOUNG - "KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK" (knock knock was like someone pounding the wall).

"What the heck was that?" I said. My friend quickly jumped out of bed and turned on the lights. We gave each other, confused looks. "Did you hear that?" I asked. "Yeah" he replied. "Well? Was it your brother or" before I could finish. "BOUNG BOUNG - KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK" - My friend quickly locked his door and ran towards me, standing next to my mattress - I stood next to him as well. He got out his phone and called the house phone, hoping someone would wake up. Not even 5 rings the phone answered, no answer. I thought it was weird that the phone was answered so quickly, when everyone was sound asleep. He called again, the phone was engaged.

My friend began to suspect that maybe someone was in the house and that black shadowy thing we saw was the intruder. We began to freak. He called his brother's mobile, while I called his mums mobile (cell phone). His brother didn't answer, but his mum did. I gave the phone to him, and he proceeded to tell his mum. He hung up and said "wait in my room"...

We waited for about 5 minutes when there was a knock on his door. "Mum?" he asked. No answer... "Mum! Is that you?!" he began to panic. "Sweety, be quiet - I don't want to wake everyone" - HUGE RELIEF. We opened the door, his mum came in, and when my friend closed the door - I saw that black figure move into the bathroom. "Close the door!" I said. My friend quickly closed the door - "What is wrong with you two?" his mum asked.

My friend started to explain the odd knocking noise, the black figure we saw and how the home phone was picked up straight away, and how we tried to call it again, it was engaged.

"It's late, your mind plays tricks on you - especially when you were both on the computer all day," his mum explained.

"Yeah, but I don't think it affects our ears!" my friend retaliated.

His mum asked what is it we heard. We made the noise for her. She then said that it was probably the water running through the house. My friend said that water running through the pipes in the house does not make that type of noise and asked her to explain the thing with the phone, how it got picked up so quickly.

She then said that maybe his sister picked it up, and forgot to turn it off. My friend gave his mum his mobile to call the house phone, it started ringing, picked up straight away, and no answer. She hung up, called again, engaged - She called her daughters mobile. She wasn't answering - she called again. Finally she answered, and thinking it was her brother, started swearing her head off. Until she realised it was her mum. She then asked her if she had been answering the home phone. My friend's sister said that she's been asleep the whole time.

My friend's mum hung up and dialed the home phone again. This time it rang. Picked up straight away, my friend's mum quickly hung up. "What is it?" my friend asked. His mum started to explain that she heard whispers for around 5 seconds then she swore she heard, "get you!"

As she was about to head out of the room to get her husband, I stopped her. Saying that if there really was someone in the house - then that black shadowy figure I saw go into the bathroom, could be out there.

Good one these stories that could be either supernatural or even real murderers are quite scary.
