19 July 2017 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters
I’ve been ill lately so I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in my bed. The way my room is laid out, I can see everything from my bed; the closet door is to the left of my TV, the door to my bedroom on the right, and the only window is to the left of my bed. I have always been interested in the paranormal, and since I haven’t had much to do, recently, I was watching some paranormal shows on TV as I laid on my bed. I had my door closed, but did not lock it, because my cat cries outside the door until I open it if he didn’t come into the room with me, and since he has a very loud voice, I try to get the door open as quickly as possible. Around 2:30, my mother knocked on my door, so I yelled and told her it was unlocked and she could just come in. She fiddled with the knob, and told me it was locked.
I was very confused, because I knew I didn’t lock my door and the lock takes a little effort to twist, so it couldn’t have locked on its own as I closed it. I stood up and made my way to the door just assuming it was just stuck and my mother couldn’t get it open, only to find the door was actually locked. I kept repeating “I swear I didn’t lock the door” until my mother asked what she needed to know and left. I was left standing in the doorway, completely at a loss because I know I didn’t lock the door when I entered.
This event came only days after my curtains had been swaying as if my window was open when the window was closed and locked. I have no idea if I’m just freaking myself out with ghost stories or if these incidents have some real meaning behind them.
