My family and I moved into a little house in New Jersey. I could never go to sleep at night facing my room. I would have to face the wall and hide under the covers. I would always feel a presence right in front of me if I faced my room. It would watch me and I’d be terrified and feel the chills at night. That would be the worst part of the day.
I was home alone while my parents were out for the evening. I was sitting at my computer when out of nowhere I felt it again — right behind me. I got so cold and I couldn’t move. I don’t know if it was a paralysis or I was too terrified to look back and see what the creature or spirit that was looking at me. I don’t know what it was, but it was a strong feeling. It took me days to get over that feeling.
One night, I was looking through some photos in an old photo album. I saw a picture I had never seen before. It was taken in the kitchen, and there was a boy in a black shirt with white pants standing in the corner of the picture.
A few weeks later, my mom left to go to work and told me that my cousins were coming that day. I was coming out of the bathroom and saw the doorknob moving and shaking. Someone was pushing the door back and forth and it looked like someone was trying to force their way into the room even though the door was unlocked. I stared at it wondering why it wouldn’t open.
I asked to see who it was, but there was no answer. Then it stopped, so I opened it. No one was there. I thought my cousins were behind the wall and were going to jump out to scare me, so I waited. Nothing. So, I stepped in the hallway and saw no one.
To this day I still have no idea who was haunting that house. I would love to learn more about it — but I never could dig up any information about that house. My parents moved some time to Arizona.
