The Bang On The Door


I haven't written a story in a while but one that came to my mind while I was looking at the site again was the time when I was living in the guest house at my ex-husband's aunt's house. Spooky things always seem to happen to me while I am in a very depressed state.

During this time, I was severely depressed due to a few of life's unfortunate incidents but one day, I was sleeping in the bed near my ex-husband and my son. (Who was little bit less than a year old I believe) At this moment, between I think 2-3am. (That's the time I saw on the clock when I woke up) I was having a dream where I could feel more rather than see... This very EVIL force coming fast directly at our house that we were being housed in. Rushing through the gate (as there is a gate that separates the house from the outside) and it then comes very fast against the door! I could visually see this form that was similar to a hand (as if you looked at your own hand from your own perspective) reaching out towards the door. At that moment, between being asleep and being jolted awake I heard this huge banging on the door! I would have just thought... It was a dream and I imagined it but not only did it wake me up. My son started screaming and wailing also. I really believe that something was "really" there because it woke both my son and I up in the middle of the night... It didn't wake up my ex-husband though.

It still is slightly chilling to remember how this force felt like in the dream. It was a very strong feeling of malice and violence... Though where it was being directed from or who I am not sure... It felt more like feelings... Then a presence. I tried to wake up my ex at the time to go see what it was but he didn't want to go look. I was too scared to get out of bed and I laid there awake until 4-5 am when the sun was starting to come up as every little, normal sound that occurred wouldn't let me go to rest.

I was so scared from that moment onwards of being alone in the house at night after that for a long time.

Spirits are attracted to that

It might have been for your husband. Good thing no one answered.
