One night, I was lying in bed when I realized I needed to use the bathroom. Getting up, I shuffled down the hallway to our small upstairs bathroom. I noticed that the bathroom door was shut but the light was off so I thought nothing of it. I went to open the door but I suddenly heard a loud sound of someone clearing their throat. I figured it was my uncle who had recently moved in with us and decided to wait for him to get out.
I waited in bed for 10 minutes and finally decided to just go to sleep. A few hours later I awoke again and went to get out of bed when suddenly the bathroom lights began to flicker madly! I stepped closer to the hallway when I heard and loud crash in the bathroom and wondered what had happened. I peeked behind me and looked into my brother's room to see him fast asleep. Figuring it was my uncle again I walked up to the door and said "uncle Gary, what are you doing?" There was no reply. I stepped back and heard a faint gurgling noise. Listening for a moment I realized it was my uncle snoring fast asleep in his room! Terrified I ran into my brother's room and climbed into his bed for the remaining three hours until morning.
When morning came I asked my mother if she had used the bathroom. She said she hadn't, so I asked my step dad and he told me he had gone to the bathroom. So I asked him why he hadn't responded when I asked him what was going on, and why was he flickering the lights. Then he asked me, "what are you talking about? I used the bathroom down stairs and I didn't do anything like that..." Since then we have moved but every night I still check the bathroom before using it.
