Recently, I saw an eerie show on the Discovery Channel called "A Haunting - House of the Dead" which was about a family's house that had paranormal activity going on in there and it brought back some memories of my own (but not as scary)...
It was a typical, quiet, Saturday afternoon (this was when I lived at home with my mom and step-dad) and my mom and step-dad were away which made the day even better. I slept in since I didn't have to work and then my lazy ass finally got in the shower. As the water was running, I heard a loud knock on the door and I figured that the folks came home and my mom wanted something, so I yelled "WHAT do you want?" Since she didn't reply back, I kept the water on and continued to shampoo my hair and then it happened again - but the knock was much louder and there were two knocks. Once again I yelled out "MOM, WHAT DO YOU WANT?" And there was no answer... The knocks have stopped.
I wrapped myself in a towel and I opened the bathroom door but nobody was around besides the 3 cats. I looked out the front door and only my car was in the driveway. I convinced myself thinking they came home for a few minutes and they needed to tell me something or whatever, so I figured to ask them later what they wanted.
Later in the evening, I asked my mom what the hell was that all about, and she was like "What are you talking about?"
I told her about the knocks and she said something like "Oh you're silly.... You knew we weren't home. It was probably coming from the front door or maybe the cats were playing by the door."
I know that sound was defitnitely not from the cats and not coming from the front door. They have different sounds, if ya know what I mean.
A few months later, the roles reversed... I wasn't home and when I got home my mom asked me what I wanted and I'm like "HUH? What are you talking about?" She asked why were you knocking on our door while we were sleeping? I replied "That wasn't me... I wasn't home!" She then said "Stop playing around, what did you want?" Once again I said "I have no idea what you're talking about."
SEVERAL MONTHS LATER -
I was cleaning out the bathroom and stood on top of the toilet to get down this old wicker basket (had fake flowers in out) that has been hanging in the bathroom since we moved in. I couldn't stand looking at it anymore and I wanted it gone. While I unlatched the basket from the hook, it fell to the floor. Underneath the flowers were newspaper clippings about a person, along with an old compact *mirror*, watch & a few other things (looked like broken jewerly). I was kind of freaked out from what I saw and I placed everything in a box and gave it to the folks. I didn't want to throw it away knowing there was some personal meaning behind this all and maybe that (((KNOCK))) was that person/spirit coming back for their things. Who knows for sure?
If you ever had a freaky encounter of your own, I wanna hear from you!
