In 1977 I lived in an apartment on N Randolph Street, Indpls. It was a large old house that they had made an upstairs and downstairs apartments. At the time I had two daughters. I was about 7 months pregnant and had a husband, who liked to drink a lot. Since this was an old house, it had a walk-in attic up a set of stairs from the upstairs apartment. There was one bedroom, living room, bath and kitchen. I wanted the girls, ages 5 & 6, to have their own bedroom, so I put our bed in the unfinished attic. There were two windows, but the front one let the light from the streetlight in.
One night after I had put the kids down and gone to bed by myself, since my husband had collapsed face down on the couch, I went to sleep. You know how you wake up and have the feeling someone is with you? I knew there was someone in the room crossing around the bed and toward the front of the attic. I wasn't scared because I thought it was my drunk husband staggering around, so I reached over and turned on the light to get him into bed. There was no one in that room with me. I thought he might have gone back down the steps, didn't think so, but who knows. I got up and went downstairs to the front room, and he was still lying on the couch, face down with his hand lying on the floor like he was when I went to bed. I checked on the girls, and they were both asleep. I went back up with a bat in my hand and searched the attic. It was all open with no walls, so there was no place to hide. I told Dale about it the next morning, and he laughed at me.
Another night a few weeks later, I was again lying in bed, on my back with my leg over my husband's hip. Bigger pregnant by now. Again I felt a feeling and thought Dale was standing over me. I hit out with my hand and felt something wet and clammy. I felt up a few feels and opened my eyes. I could see a shadowy figure standing there. He looked tall, but I was lying down. The light from outside let me make out a figure that looked like it was dressed in clothes like Abraham Lincoln would wear, but they were green colored and stringy like they were rottening.
Then I realized that it wasn't Dale and my leg was over him. I tried to scream, but only air came out. I couldn't scream, so I realized my foot would move. I started kicking Dale on his hip as hard as I could. He woke up, rolled over hollering at me, and he saw it just before it disappeared. He jumped up as asked what the hell that was. He searched the attic and didn't find anything either. There was only one way in or out, and this thing could not have gone without being seen. The next morning Dale's hip was starting to bruise. I talked to my mother-in-law after that. She said while she lived there she never used the attic, but she had heard knockings on that door. She thought they came from the back door, but when she got there nobody would be there. As she would go back through the hallway she would hear the knocking again, but she was always too scared to open it. I don't know what was there, but something was. .
