So, I admit, I'm fairly new to the Sixpenceee blog, but recently my desire has grown to share this story about some odd happenings here at my house in the past. Though I was not the immediate witness to any of the following events, I will repeat them as I was told.
Almost three years ago I had a party here at my house. It was my 21st birthday, so needless to say there was copious amounts of alcohol involved. My friend and his girlfriend slept on a futon in the extension to my room, while I slept in the main part of my bedroom with mine.
I slept like a rock, but in the morning as we all were talking we found out that not everyone slept as soundly. My friend asked me if we saw or heard anything strange that night, because he was pretty terrified. He said he saw something floating in the room above him that night. A girl. Slowly spinning in the corner of the extension, being held up by what looked like a rope. He thought he was just seeing things, so he shut his eyes tight, but when he reopened them she was standing on the floor with her head bowed. Her skin was pale, almost green-ish, with jet black hair and a wispy, white dress. Growing more terrified, he closed his eyes again, hoping he was dreaming. When he opened them again, she was closer, staring at him. He tells me her eyes were either very sunken in, or completely nonexistent. Fully panicking, he pulled his girlfriend close to protect her. When he looked again, the girl was inches from his face. At this point, the sounds he was making and the shaking of his body woke his girlfriend. He says that once she woke and tried to calm him, the girl was gone. He heard nothing the rest of the night.
As we're all taking this story in, my girlfriend chimes in by asking if anyone slammed the door to my room. Again, I was confused, and said I didn't hear a thing. She told me she watched the door open, and then slam shut. We have no way of telling when this happened in relation to my friend's experience.
Now that we were all thoroughly freaked out, I decided to look at this logically. I know my house, and I am no stranger to drunken dreams. Since my friend had enjoyed his fair share of alcohol, I figured that he merely had an incredibly vivid nightmare induced by his state when he went to bed. As far as the door is concerned, that could easily have been from the multiple windows open throughout the house on that summer night. Again, not a rare occurrence in my house. As I told them this, we started to dismiss the experiences.
But as the day went by, I began to think..
A few months before the party, I had my own odd experience in my room's extension. I was home alone, middle of the day, gaming on my PC. My cat decided to visit me, loudly announcing his presence, and hopping up onto the window sill beside my table. He looks at me and lets me pet him quickly, then turns and looks out the window. I leave him be, and continue on my computer. A few minutes pass, and he starts making the strangest sounds I have ever heard come out of his mouth. Chirps and chatters and all manner of sounds in between. Thoroughly confused, I look over at him, only to find him staring intently at the futon behind me. I try to talk to him, he doesn't look away, he keeps chattering. Immediately concerned and suspicious, fully believing that cats can see things that we cannot, I force myself to not look behind me. I continue gaming, he keeps chirping, and after a few minutes he just hops down and leaves. The house is quiet again.
To this day, I can neither confirm nor deny a link between the events of those two days. And, quite frankly, I don't feel like probing deeper. My policy is don't ask - don't tell. If I leave them be, I like to believe that they'd leave me be.
Thanks for listening! I figured that if anyone would appreciate my tale, it would be here.
