figure, the floor boards in the rafters were right below the living room roughly exactly where I was sleeping the first night. The floor boards had dents as though someone or something had hit the bottom of the floor about 30 times with the handle of a wooden broom and left marks embedded into the wood.

I grew up on a road that only had a couple of homes on it. I knew from a very early age that something was wrong with the house that I lived in. My first experience was at the age of seven. I was lying in bed one night, and I wasn't asleep yet. I had a strange feeling come over me, and I lifted my head from the pillow expecting something.
I could see through the open door of my brother's bedroom. A black figure appeared through the wall of his bedroom and glided into my bedroom. It floated, not walked. It went over my bed and remained there for a few seconds. Just gently gliding. It lowered itself and glided back to the same wall it came from and disappeared. Oddly enough I was not frightened of this apparition. I cannot explain why it didn't frightened me as I spent many years in the house frightened of the noises I was hearing.
I have heard constant footsteps above me in the attic as well as heavy breathing behind me or in the same room with me even though I was alone in the room. The worst experience was when I was twelve. I was in my bedroom which is now my brother's room from my earlier experience. He was now married, and I got the larger bedroom. The door to the attic was in that bedroom.
I was sewing on my bed when I got the feeling that something was going to fall and roll down the attic steps and hit the door. No sooner did the thought go through my mind, I could hear the rumbling of something loud rolling down the attic steps and hit the door. The door pushed out of its frame but didn't open up all the way since it was tight, but I could see the door was ajar. I ran downstairs to my mom and dad who were sitting on the porch and told them what happened. My dad came into the house and went upstairs with me. I was scared to death. He saw the door was ajar. He opened it up, and I stood behind him not knowing what would be there. Nothing. Nothing was there, and yet whatever hit that door pushed it from its frame. That was the last encounter that I remembered.
