When I was 14 years old I lived in this older house, just off the main street in my city. It was a nice house but creepy once inside. I remember moving in to the house, my room was small. I had two small closets, just barely big enough to put things in. I never really took notice of the vibe I was getting. It was a new house, I was excited. My room was different. I only had a bed, lamp, and small shifty desk in my room. No other furniture. It didn't bother me, I was a very simplistic person so it was okay.
Everything for the first couple of days was alright, nothing to out of place. It was around a month or so into living in this house that I started to hear weird noises they sounded like footsteps upstairs. being only 14 I decided to tell my father, "It's just the house settling. Don't worry about it." He said, pulling me in for a comforting hug. When i went to sleep that night I felt very panicked almost. Like, something was going to happen that I wasn't prepared for. I woke up around two 'O clock in the morning thirsty and in need of a bathroom. So I got out of my bed-- After finishing my duties, I walked into my room to find my closet door slightly cracked open like something was peeking into my room. I turned my light on and checked for "monsters" in my closet. Nothing. Absolutely nothing, I couldn't explain it. I shut the door running to my bed immediately.
I laid on my bed, eyes locked on my closet waiting for any movement. I stayed like that for an hour, staring. Nothing. I woke up the next morning with my closet door wide open, and a hand print on my thigh freshly printed. As if someone had press their hand against my skin for a while. I ruled out how I was sleeping, because my arms were nestled under my pillow slightly stiff from being stuck in that position for a while. It wouldn't have been my parents, it was summer. There was no need to wake me up for anything, and both my siblings were sleeping so it wasn't them. I showed my mom, and dad completely frightened. I explained the events of the night before leading up to this, and they were just as shocked as I.
I never really got an answer from that night, no explanation as to how that happened or why. But over the nights leading up to our departure from the house, I kept watching my closet open and I would hear footsteps walking towards my room -- stopping once they got close to my door. Very unusual and creepy things you'd see in the movies.
Nevertheless, It was the night before we started to move our things out of the house. I was laying in bed, bawled up under my covers trying to get to sleep, when the footsteps start. I didn't pay attention to it. They got to my door and stopped. I heard my closet door creak open along with my clothes shifting around like someone was searching for something. I rolled towards the wall, closing my eyes as tight as could be. The carpet in my room started to make noises, like someone was sliding on it. Like children do to create static electricity. I felt a breeze-- it was cold and short and the air felt oddly thick. Too scared to open my eyes I pull the covers over my head, "We'll be back" it said before it walked away leaving me to my thoughts for the rest of the night. So far things are okay, I still hear footsteps but my mom tells me those are just from the trauma of the old house. I don't know who or what "they" were or why they chose me but, To this day I sleep with the lights on in fear they might come back to taunt me again.
