Between the ages of 10 and 17 I lived in a house built in the 70's I believe. It was a small house with a lovely back yard. Often, during the night I would wake for no apparent reason and "feel" a presence in my room. There were no noises, or anything creepy like that, but I just felt as though I was being watched. Not only that but it felt mean and hostile. A few days later my mother told me that "something" had tried to pull the blankets off her during the night, and she had felt a tugging sensation on the blankets at the end of the bed, that really creeped me out.
I hated my bedroom so much because of this feeling I switched to our guest bedroom. But it got even worse. I had a bunk bed at the time, but the lower bunk had been removed (so basically it was just a high bed). About 7pm at night I was laying in bed reading, and all of a sudden I hear really harsh, shallow breathing coming from underneath my bed where the bottom bunk should be. I freaked out and jumped from the bed, crashed to the floor and bolted from the room. I cried and told my parents there was someone breathing in my room, but they told me it was just the pipes. The noise had stopped when they went to inspect it.
A few years later in that same room my best friend claimed she saw my computer chair slowly revolve on the spot, over and over again (even though there was no window open or anything like that) This was before I had even told her of the other things I had heard/felt. Lots of other little things happened over the 7 years I lived there.
For a while my little sister (who didn't understand things like this at the time, she was very young) refused to sleep in her bedroom, and refused to tell anyone why. It's only now she speaks about it (she's 17 now). She tells me she saw a little girl in her room a lot. And sometimes she would hear talking (even though everyone was asleep at the time)
Other than that I always heard floorboards creaking outside my bedroom door during the night. It's very hard to explain to people the feeling of being watched by something paranormal. I always felt tense, the air felt thick, and sometimes I was too scared to actually move in case something happened.
Do you think it was a spirit or just...pipes?
