My family moved into a house 11 months ago that had just finished being built so we are the first people to live here. My Mom had the house built on a dirt road that has an old grave yard on it. I was a bit apprehensive about that, but I didn't mind it because I was excited about moving into a new house.
The first few nights I kept getting woken up by what I thought were footsteps outside my door. However, nothing was ever there when I checked. I wrote it off as sounds a new house would make. Well, as weeks went by, the sounds became more frequent, but this time they were accompanied with doors shutting and lights flicking off.
One night, my sister and I both couldn't sleep and she went into my room. Around 3 AM, we both heard the sound of footsteps walking to the doorway. I thought it was the dog, however as it came closer it seemed too loud and heavy to be the dog. My sister asked me if I thought it sounded like footsteps too. Right after she said that, there was a loud banging on the door and then the doorknob was twisted erratically a few times, but we had locked it so it stopped and was quiet after that. We both got up to check if it was Mom, but she was asleep in her bed and it couldn't be my Dad since he is paralyzed and nobody else was in the house since we had alarms installed and the doors were all locked when we checked.
Since then, we continue to hear footsteps and doors shutting, the fan in my room now turns off by itself, and there is a general feeling of being watched. My Mom believes she has seen a man in the hallway and sometimes I see things passing by in the corner of my eye and hear a man's whispering at night.
We aren't scared and uncomfortable here because whoever it is hasn't tried to harm us or anything like that, but I'd like to see what others may think.
