About 8 years ago, my young son and I moved into a new house in a great neighborhood. A two story bi-level with 3 bedrooms and 3 bath. Our first home. We couldn’t be happier. Despite my joy, I’m always nervous the first night sleeping in a new place. The master bedroom had its own full bathroom. I’d left that door open before going to bed. I normally sleep on my back but there’s no window in the bathroom so it looks like a gaping hole of blackness which was mildly creeping me out. I watch a lot of horror movies and have quite the imagination so I roll over so I can’t see it.
As I’m lying there settling in, eyes closed preparing for sleep I suddenly hear a woman whisper in my ear. My eyes fly open and I’m looking around the room terrified. My heart is pounding so loud I can hear it in my ears. I’m too afraid to move. I lie there clutching the covers up to my chin trying to figure out what I just heard. I want to check on my son in the next room but I literally can’t move. Is someone in the house? I’m petrified with fear. I know I wasn’t dreaming. And what exactly did she say? I’m unsure and now I’m too afraid to sleep.
After what seems likes hours I’m too exhausted to remain awake and on guard. I finally start to relax when all of a sudden she whispers in my ear a second time. The panic starts all over again. No sleep for me that night. I never saw anything and to this day I still don’t know what she said. For the remaining time we lived in the house I never heard anything else. I don’t know if it was related but after that night I closed the bathroom door before going to bed.
