Excuse me if this doesn't make sense at some points, I tend to babble with my words a lot.
These things I've been seeing and hearing have been going on since I can remember nearly 7 years back (I'm 14 now) when we lived in our house in Colorado Springs, CO. There was one night I remember quiet well that still makes me cry to this day just thinking about it. Let me just say now that at the time, me, one of my sisters, and a fairly large group of my friends were studying and practicing witchcraft at the time which now I wish I hadn't been.
I was taking a shower in our downstairs bathroom. We had one of those stand up showers with the glass doors. I had thought I'd seen my younger sister standing outside the shower just standing there, as it appeared to be a dark figure. So, I opened the shower door and I saw no-one there and the door still closed. I remembered a moment later that the door was still locked. I quickly got out of the shower to ask my parents who went downstairs, since there were 4 levels of the house. They were sitting in the living room watching TV when I asked. They both replied with a no and I asked where my sisters were. They were outside playing with some friends. Thinking nothing of this, I went upstairs to my bedroom. What I saw I can still picture in my head now.
There was a dark figure of a girl lying on my bed. I could see her clearly but it looked as if she were made of smoke. She was looking straight at me grinning with this awful look on her face so I ran back downstairs and decided not to tell anybody about this. I was too scared. I couldn't sleep in my room that week so I bunked with my sisters. (I have 3 smaller ones.) This wasn't the end of our terrors though. It seemed as though my parents never saw anything in that house. It was only me and my 5 year old sister at the time. Every corner we turned, it was like some one was turning the corner before us and it always seemed to be a shadow. If I peered out of the corner of my eye, I could see a shadow just standing there until I would turn my head in that direction. I would have night terrors in that house that scared me to crying point and to this day I still dream of that old house. We always had the feeling of someone watching us in the house, especially in the basement, the room we were most afraid of. None of us would go down there unless forced, and we always took someone down there with us. We would hear creaks in the floors upstairs when my sisters and me were home alone downstairs. Most sounded like heavy boots walking. I always ignored this and tried to get my sisters focus off the noises.
When we were moving, I couldn't have been more relieved. I saw my last ghost at that house as I was going into the house to say my last goodbyes. I looked towards the kitchen and saw a figure run past the doorway as I watched, only, it was white this time.
Everything was fine except for the chills I would get and memories that flooded my mind right after and the fact that I've remained afraid of the dark. That is, until this month...
I'm 14 now and I live in El Paso, Texas. Far west, desert. We are the first people to live in this house and I don't know why this would be going on now.
A few days ago I was lying on my bed with my 12 year old sister, when I thought I saw our cat run by the door, except it vanished mid-way. I turned to my sister and asked if she saw it. She said yes and told me she had something to tell me. She said; "me and the girls have been seeing things the last few days and hearing things. Kitty's been acting really weird too." Shocked, I felt... Dead. When I asked what kind of things, she told me they've been seeing shadows again. They see things run across doorways, things that aren't there when they take a second look, hear banging on the walls, and keep seeing the same black cat in the same room.
Last night they decided to camp out in our youngest sister's room, where they saw the black cat. They tried going to sleep when they kept hearing this scratching noise coming from the wall behind the bed. They turned on the light to see what it was but nothing was there. Our cat had been laying on the bed when the noise had happened and when they turned on the light; they found her staring at the wall from where the noise had came from. Ignoring this, they turned the light back off to try and go back to sleep once again but it didn't stop, they started hearing scratching noises on the carpet now from the bed they were sleeping next to. Next the cat started attacking my smallest sister. The cat was biting and scratching her all over so they had to kick her out of the room, but the noises continued. Finally scared enough, my 12 year old sister left their room to go sleep in her own and my 7 and 10 year old sister went upstairs to sleep with out parents.
Tonight I brought it up during dinner to find out that my dad had been experiencing some weird things also, but he hadn't told anyone but my mom. While he fell asleep on the couch, he was awoken by the feeling of someone rubbing his cheek. He jolted awake and looked around but no one was around him. The same thing happened again. The third time, he felt tapping one his shoulder, which he thought was our smallest sister, but turned around to find nothing again. Then last night he had his eyes slightly opened while he was lying in bed and saw a shadow run across the doorway. Scared, he got up and checked the house for anyone who might've gotten in. The alarm was still set, everyone was sleeping and no one else was in the house so he just went back to bed thinking nothing of it. My dad had mentioned before being awakened by crying, screaming, or someone calling out his name. I don't understand any of this and it scares me.
Could this have been something that followed us from Colorado or something new?
Whatever it is, I can't stand it.
