I really don't know how to explain this. My house is really nice, and my family really loves it, particularly my mother and father. We got it for a really good price and it was our dream house.
It's perfect except for one thing. The previous owner's father died in the house. I didn't think much of it before, but me and my brothers have started to see things. Sometimes, I will walk into my room and the T.V. will turn on the instant I step in the room. Sometimes I hear someone's footsteps from the attic, which is above my room. It was weird at first, but I eventually got over it.
But then one night last January, something EXTREMELY scary happened that I will never forget. I was sleeping and it was four A.M. My littlest brother comes in shaking and pale, waking me up. I'm a little ticked, but he says he is hearing stuff so I say, "Okay just get your stuff and sleep on the floor." I am thinking that he had just had a nightmare, so I try to go back to sleep. But then I start to hear something too, and it is really bizzare. It is like someone is cooing, like a bird might, going "coo-coo", but something about the voice told me that this was not a bird. Whatever it was, it was in my laundry room it sounded like. By that time I am wide awake. When my brother comes back in, he is frozen. This thing is cooing louder and getting closer to my room. Finally, when I hear it walking up the stairs I yell for my brother to shut and lock the door. He does after a second time, too scared to move the first. Now this thing is outside my door, jiggling the doorknob and cooing loudly. I am completely shaking from head to toe and too scared to talk. After about an hour, the cooing stops. The thing is heard walking away. I did not move until my mom called my name from the bottom of the stairs at six to wake up.
My mom and dad insist I was dreaming, and nothing happened, but that is to be expected. My brother and I stick by the story and refuse to say we were dreaming. How could we be dreaming the same? I gradually started to recover and sleep in my room alone again in about a month or two. I try to forget. However, lately the encounter has been revived in my dreams and I am having trouble sleeping. I am again in January, and what if this happens again?
What I really want to know is do I have anything to be scared of?
