Ice Box Mystery

26 June 2018 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have lived in this same house for 20 years and my bedroom has always been cold, even with the heating on in the whole house. My bedroom felt like an icebox hence the title of this incident. Some times the ceiling fan would start up on its own. I thought i was imagining it so I marked one of the blades and sure enough I found it had moved position without it ever being switched on by myself. I could always feel someone with me in the room when I was entirely alone in the house.

The creepiest thing that ever happened was when I had a new mattress for my bed – a memory foam mattress the kind that mould to your body outline. It was on a Friday night and I’d just got in from work. I was tired and I decided on an early night. I made a cup of cocoa and made my way upstairs to my bed room. I thought i heard movement upstairs so I cautiously checked each room thinking there may be an intruder in the house. I found no one, but upon finally entering my bedroom I was filled with utter shock as upon my bed was the clear indentation of a sleeping child. The memory foam mattress holding this outline and making no attempt to return to its original shape. I grabbed my phone and attempted to photograph the bed still holding this child’s outline, but the image my phone screen displayed showed a perfectly formed mattress. I turned back to the bed to see the indentation still there, then back to my phone to see a perfect, undisturbed mattress……I totally freaked out and shouted “this is my room, you are not welcome here, please go and never return.” The mattress slowly began to fill out. From that moment on the room can only be described as returning to normal. The mattress never again showed this indentation of a child, the fan never moved on its own, and the temperature returned to normal, no longer feeling like an icebox.

I have never felt a presence there since. I have no explanation for any of this experience and never attained any evidence to support or reject any of the things that have happened.
