I was terrified that someone had gotten into the house through the attic. I listened for the door at the bottom of the stairs but there was no other sound. There were no footsteps returning up the stairs either.
Beany and I stayed in the bed with blankets over our heads till I got the courage to get up turn on a light and get dressed. Then Beany and I would both go to pick up Lars. Sometimes we would get there and hour early just to avoid more time
alone in the house.|
I began to sleep in my clothes in order to bolt out of the house faster. This pattern repeated itself many times on many nights
and I would find the attic door unlocked after each incident even though we made sure it was locked every night.|
Without anyone else to back me up it was nothing but a story. Although Lars and Tom didn't fully believe the story neither of them would go up the stairs to have a look around the attic. We did add one more lock to the attic door and it was always found unlocked after the footsteps were heard.
Scarier than the footsteps on the stairs
