My family left to go to Mexico for three days due to my grandfather's death. I was willing to lose my job to attend my grandpa's funeral but my mother told me that it really wasn't worth it. Grandpa was gone and losing my job wouldn't bring him back. With guilt and regret I stayed home.
First night alone, everything went smoothly. I would hear an average crack sound which could have been anything. (The heater, maybe even my dog.) Second night, I remember I was watching Jeepers creepers in the family room. It was getting dark. All of a sudden I heard footsteps coming from my parent's bedroom upstairs. I choose to ignore it. You know nobody wants to believe they just heard footsteps when they are all alone. Later on that night, while still watching TV I felt like if there was something behind me. Again I ignored it. But then, I choose to listen really closely to what was going on behind me and I heard someone take a very deep breath. At this point my heart was pumping really fast. All I could think at the moment was,"i need to lock myself in my room, get some rest." I ran to the TV, turned it off, then went upstairs, locked my dog in a cage in my sister's room, then closed my sister's door.
I was finally in my room, laying down in peace. I was to the point that I was falling asleep but still wake. Then I started hearing my dog bark. Loud, and very violently. I sat up on my bed and just listened for anything unusual. When all of a sudden my dog started scratching on my door. She seemed very frightened. I opened the door and grabbed her. She was shaking vary badly. Like if she just dodged a car or something.
I checked the entire house after that. I was in tough mode walking around with a bat. Everything in my house was in place, all doors and windows were locked. The only thing that gets to me is, how did my dog manage to get out of her cage? Not only that but how was she able to reach the door handle and open it? By the way this is a Toy Puddle we're talking about.
In all something strange happen that night. And I'm for sure that there will be many other nights just like this one at my house.
