I saw something at the corner of my eye and it was a dark spirit. I called my mom and she said it was an entity from hell. I was peeing my pants.

When I first moved to Rockford in 1972 friends and I shared a house called 'Prairie House'. Built in 1853 it was a family home and still stands. Most recently it had been used as an occult book shop but the business had failed so now it was a residential rental.
It has a kitchen bathroom and root cellar on the basement level a living room den and library on the 1st level with a beautiful foyer and staircase and 3 bedrooms and a bathroom on the upper level.|
Above that an attic and above that a widow's walk. The house already had a reputation of being haunted but we had no specific details and we didn't believe it anyway. On the bedroom level the stairway to the attic is in the hallway between 2 bedrooms.|
There is a door at the bottom of the attic stairs which we kept locked. My boyfriend Lars and I shared one of those rooms and our room-mate tom used the other. Tom had a habit of being out very late most nights and Lars worked from 10 pm to 6 am - that meant I was in the house alone (with my cat Beany) every night.
I would drive Lars to work and return home and go to bed. Soon after moving in I was alone in the house when I was awakened by the sound of heavy footsteps walking down the attic steps. Our bed was right up against the wall to the stairway so this sound was very close and very clear.
