It was my second apartment. It was a fair size, nice building and a large and very beautiful court yard. For the first few months it was quite peaceful. Then one night I heard a crash coming from the hallway in my apartment. My boyfriend was asleep so I thought it was my cat. I walked into the hallway and nothing was there. The cat was asleep in his cathouse and nothing was broken.
As the weeks went on I heard more strange things in my building, a kid laughing, things breaking, and doors slamming. My TV would change channels on its own. You could look at the remote and watch the buttons being pushed down on there own. The bathroom door would shut and lock on its own (and that's a feet seeing as if you put all your body weight into it you still couldn't close the door all the way), the lights in the kitchen would flicker and sometimes you would see a little figure standing in the hall from the living room to the kitchen, he'd smile and run down the hall.
I was getting a little tired of this and asked the landlords if they knew anything about a child haunting the place. They told me that when the place was built a lot of the court yard was a pond. They drained it and made it all a garden after an 8 year old boy had drowned in the pond. They also assured me I wasn't the only one. They had more than a few complaints about this ghost. More or less I just had to put up with this until I moved about a year later.
