I have to admit that I'm quite spooked this morning. I'm thinking that I might have an unwanted guest in my house.
Let me take you back to the very beginning. When my daughter was 3-5 years old, my wife and I were sure that she had a "friend" looking out for her.
We'd hear her talking to someone as she played in her room. I put it down to the good ol' imaginary friend and didn't think much more about it. Until I started seeing things out of the corner of my eye. I'd see a child walk down the hallway. I figured it was my daughter up to no good, but she was in her room and what I saw went away from her room. I dismissed it and went on with what I was doing.
This went on for the next several nights and each time I dismissed it. But one night I had to pay attention.
One night not only could I see this figure going down the hallway, but I heard it too. Again my daughter was in her room playing.
There was one night that really had me going. It was about 11pm and both of my kids were asleep in sepparate rooms and my wife was at work. From out of no-where, both kids just burst out laughing for about 30 seconds and that was the last unexplainable thing that happened.....until about a week ago.
Now in present times and strange things are going on again. The kids are in their rooms doing "homework" (I still think they're surfing YouTube), my wife is in the shower and I'm sitting on the couch watching TV. For the last several days I've been hearing footsteps. The first couple of nights I got up to see what the kids were up to and sure enough they were still in their rooms and my wife still in the shower.
Last night I decided to stay put, ignore the sound and keep watching TV. The footsteps got closer and I thought it was my son sneaking up on me for a surprise hug. Until I was tapped 3 times on the right shoulder. I spun around and there was nobody there.
