Years ago we lived in a house on Van Buren St. in Savanna. I was a teenager at the time. In the dead of the night I was awoken by a violent kick to my mattress which literally rolled me to the wall. I woke petrified I was going to be murdered right there in my own room in the pitch dark! I wanted to reach out and turn my lamp on but was far too scared.
A few moments passed and I finally turned on my lamp. My cat usually slept at the foot of my bed when the light came on she was looking up at about adult height level her ears were back and she was very unsettled.
There was nothing there that I could see but apparently my cat saw something. Even though I didn't see anything I definitely felt that I was in danger. I ran to my moms room where I stayed the rest of the night I had such a feeling of fear and doom that stayed with me for the next few days.
My mom later confessed to me that she also had odd things happening to her at 3 am on several occasions. (mom didn't want to scare me any more than I already was. ) my older brother stayed with us one weekend and slept on the couch.
Again in the middle of the night he awoke for no apparent reason to a little old man standing at the foot of the couch just looking at him. He kicked at the old man with his foot and the old man disappeared my brothers foot passing right through him.|
I have often wondered about these incidents and who that old man was or if maybe he lived or died in that house or on that property. He was and may still be evil-spirited no pun intended.
