My Family moved into a small rental house on E Market St. In Burlington, NC. It was a smaller two bed, one bath with a living room in the front of the house and a ''family room'' in the rear. Before moving in I discovered by talking to the neighbor that it had been abandoned by the last tenant and before that sat vacant for a few years. The inside of the house was in disarray, dirty carpets, kitchen floor vinyl was tore and stained and in a few rooms personal items were left behind.
We were able to strike up a deal with the landlord that if we painted, hung blinds, cleaned carpet, and removed the personal items for a few months rent. During this time we did not stay at the house at all and were gone before 9 - 10 pm each day. After about two weeks of cleaning, painting, mowing, throwing away etc. And the landlord approval for the exchange of rent for work we were ready for move in.
At first everything was normal, nothing but my wife, daughter, and myself along with two dogs that stayed in the fence outback of the house. About two weeks I noticed that the back bedroom used for my daughter's room was colder than the rest of the house. I checked the air ducts and the windows to make sure that there was no air flow coming in from those locations. After replacing the weather stripping around both windows and duct taping the ducts under the house it seemed to be back to normal.
After awhile the room returned to cold and my daughter would wake up all hours of the night, at first we dismissed it because of her age and wanting to sleep with us like every child does. However one night she told us that she was going to come in our room and sit on the end of the bed like I do to her every night. After telling her that I don't sit on her bed at night she began to tell me about the ''Man'' that is in her room.
She says he comes from the ''Family room'' and looks at her ''stuffed'' bears and then he looks at her pictures that hang on the wall and then he sits on the edge of her bed. I asked her ''what does he say''. She replied ''nothing he just smiles at me''. My wife starts to freak out thinking that someone had broken in one night and was in our daughter's bedroom. I told her that we had changed all the locks and nothing was broken to allow someone in the house.
I told my wife that I would sleep a few nights in the bedroom to show her that it was nothing and that our daughter would be fine and return to he own room after that. WELL night one was the really eventful night. I was cold and I thought that I had heard a cough or two but no man on the bed or walking into the room. Night two was same as night one just a few odd noises and very cold.
