My house doesn't usually have anything paranormal going on, but occasionally the kitchen lights would flicker. It started when I was lying on the couch because I couldn't sleep until I heard from the kitchen pans being banged against each other and footsteps walking in a circle then come towards me. I went over to the kitchen slowly to see what it was, but nothing was there. I was very confused and scared to find nothing out of place and no one there,
and never again have I slept in the living room. I know it seems a little extreme, but when you hear this when you are 6 you, are very scared and don't
know what to do.|

When I was little my family and I moved into a small farmhouse. One night shortly after we moved in I was asleep on the floor in the room I picked. I was asleep for about an hour when I heard something fall down the stairs. Having three younger sisters this scared me. I thought what if one of them fell down the stairs and got hurt? So I hurried to go and see what had happened, but when I got there it wasn't any of my sisters. There was a lady lying on the ground near the bottom step. I have never seen this lady before I ran to my room and didn't come out until the sun came up.
Another weird happening happened when we were remodeling the house. We had no indoor plumbing, so we had to use the outhouse. Well our outhouse was in the middle of the grove, and I want to get scared the first time, so I didn't have anyone come with me, that was a big mistake. When I got to the outhouse there was this really bad smell like the smell of a rotting animal. I was looking around for some dead rabbit or deer. That was not what I saw. I went behind the outhouse and looked around when something tapped on my shoulder, and old man was behind me. I said hello, but he just kept staring at me. Then I realized that the smell was coming from him. I was very frightened but didn't run. I don't know why I didn't run, but after a while just standing there staring at him he disappeared.
