In 2014 my ex fianc? and I rented a studio apartment in Waterford. Right away we were drawn to the historical value of the area and were content to rent in such an amazing place. However, it wasn't as peaceful as we thought. Not two days after we had moved in we started hearing child's voices throughout the small space. The source seemed to have been that of two small children, a young girl and boy who seemed to be about eight years old. They had a habit of pulling pranks and were constantly moving my belongings around. While the boy tended to stay hidden, the girl often sat and watched me for hours.
Both my fianc? and I witnessed a woman in what looked like nurse's wear from the revolutionary war. To him the woman appeared dark and dirty. Her hair snarled and her eyes whited out with a paper machete like face. He also said she was very old looking and just in one word evil. However, when I saw her she was very clean and friendly. She looked closer to my own age at the time. At first we thought that was the extent of the paranormal occurrences, and while somewhat concerned we remained in the apartment.
As time passed, however, I began to feel more irritable and was prone to verbally violent outbursts over no reason. Almost two weeks later there was a dark black mass huddled in the corner by the bathroom. I was sitting on the couch, and my fianc? was getting ready for his night shift when I was over-powered by what I can say was a vast emptiness. I felt like I was being strangled. I refused to sleep that night until the four corners of my bed were protected by one of my many crosses or Christian paraphernalia. As my fianc? left the building that night, a loud male voice yelled ''she's mine,'' and all the lights I had on went out. Creeped out, I asked a friend to do a cleansing, but that only seemed to make matters worse.
A large black bird like thing would perch itself in the corner of the kitchen ceiling, where I would stare at it for what my fianc? said would be hours at a time with no memory of doing so. Once I felt a compulsion to touch it, and when he pulled me back a small red dog started yelping at my feet. It led me to the bathroom which at the time was the only dark room in the house and tried to get me to follow it inside to play. Now I have a love of animals, and of course being me was about to go in when my fianc? again pulled me back. This time whatever it was in that house wasn't happy, and I was pulled to the ground. My leg covered in claw marks. When we moved to the other half of the studio what looked like a large black mass with long arms and claws crawled across the floor, where I had been pulled down.
After that night I refused to sleep in the house alone and had by accounts of all who knew me had become more anxious and angry, lashing out all the time. According to my fianc?, three nights later I was sitting staring at what he dubbed the birdcage when I turned and attacked him screaming that he had to leave, that he wasn't allowed there. When I calmed down I was told I laughed, but it wasn't my laugh. He said that I told him I belonged there, and he can't take me. He said I said that if he tried I would die, and he would be blamed. I was unaware at the time that he had been looking for other apartments.
Afraid for me and my safety my fianc? brought a mutual friend and well practiced Wiccan to the house. While she entered the main space and other vacant apartments there was no issue. She refused to enter the one we were renting for more than a few minutes, and never in the dark. Another friend had come to visit after work with his new pit bull puppy. The animal was playing with us on the bed when it stopped and looked at the corner of the kitchen where the bathroom was and started growling. After a few seconds of this it let out a loud yelp and seemed to fly across the bed hitting the wall with some considerable force. My friend left and told me he wasn't going to visit again.
