I guess I'll start by saying I'm a skeptic. Even now after these experiences, as are both my brothers. All of this started about a year ago, and it's more prominent now than ever. It usually takes place after 12 a.m. And goes on until (from what I've heard) around 3:30 a.m.
It started about two years ago, a little after we moved into this 100 year old farmhouse with a rather sad history. The house sits on 10 acres and although has its share of problems, its still a beautiful home. Both of my brothers live in the upstairs and my mom and I take the downstairs rooms. Now I need to explain that the upstairs is designed a little strangely; the ceiling is very short and although it's rather big, most of the space up there is taken by enormous closets that share an outside wall. One of these closets sits above my room. About 2-3 nights a week I'll hear some banging noises or small creeks and quickly discredit them for being the pipes or the house settling. Now I stay up pretty late most nights, sometimes until around 3 am or so on the computer doing work, on these nights I have to wear headphones and listen to music because of all the noises I hear coming from upstairs. The loudest sounds are very strange - it almost sounds like someone is dragging something across the floor, I really can't tell what it is but it's a smooth sound, and I usually hear footsteps that follow it - another really strange noise is when I hear some of the unpacked boxes up there being pushed around. I can hear the box literally sliding across the floorboards just above my room; coming from the closet. Sometimes it's a loud bang or the sound of things dropping onto the floor. I also hear footsteps on the creaky floorboards. Sometimes the sounds are so loud that our dog barks and he rarely barks at all.
After a while we started hearing more noises around the house; for instance being woken up in the middle of the night to a very loud slamming door upstairs. Or the night my brothers, my cousin and myself were all sitting around the table in our dimly lit den and we all heard a very quiet but audible laugh that sounded like a little girl. I started having some really strange dreams about the upstairs - almost incomprehensible, however it's always about or around the closet above my room. One of the dreams was where my cat was hissing at the closet whose door was open a slit. He hissed and I assured him it was ok, until I heard noises coming out of the closet and quickly ran to it and pressed my weight against it. The door was being pounded on from the other side and I knew I wouldn't be able to hold it much longer so I screamed for my brothers to help me, but when nobody showed up the door burst open and my cat sat in front of me, hissing at the darkness of the closet. Then I felt relieved somehow, like whatever it was was gone. Shortly after I had this dream, we found our cat dying in that room - when we rushed him to the vet it was too late, he died on the way and the vet couldn't tell us what was wrong with him...
I'm really beginning to hate this house, and I'm really worried ever since that happened.
We continue to hear these strange noises now, and I honestly have no idea what it could be. I'm still not sure its ghosts but I am really starting to wonder.
