In the summer of 2012 I was visiting my boyfriend (at the time) Mark, while he was going to school in Austin. He had a really rundown apartment which was what he could afford at the time. The location was far south across from an HEB on Slaughter Lane. The first day I set foot in the apartment I felt a really negative and dark energy. The squeaky wooden floors made this place even creepier. I tried to cope before odd things started happening. The first night sleeping there I woke up to someone tugging on my feet then pulling on my pillow. Mark said I was imagining things, and he told me to just go back to bed. I tossed and turned the entire night. I was afraid. I could see a dark shadow in the room moving from the doorway to the window. I did not want to wake up Mark, or he would think I was big baby. I finally managed to fall asleep.
Suddenly Mark wakes me up at around 3 am. He asked ''why is the window open? It's freezing in here. '' I told him I thought he had gotten hot and opened it. He gave me an ugly look and shut the window and went back to sleep without saying another word. The next morning I woke up early to make my boyfriend breakfast and coffee before he went off to school. I went to wake him to let him know breakfast was ready. When we came to the kitchen the coffee pot was empty, and there was a large coffee stain on his kitchen wall. Confused by this we had an argument. He thought I was trying to run him out of his apartment, so he would come back home with me. He went off to school upset leaving the breakfast on the table.
Afraid to stay behind on my own, I got dressed and was headed out the door when an older lady standing just outside the door approached me and said ''child, this is a dark dark place. You have no business in a fire like this. Go while you still can. '' Then she walked away. As I turned to lock the door, I saw the curtain at the window just to the left of the door move slightly to one side, and a lady appeared to be peeking out from inside the apartment. I met up with my boyfriend and tried to explain what the older lady told me and what I saw. He did not bother to give me a chance before he broke it off with me and sent me on my way back home. I tried to give him some space. When I tried to contact him I got a nurse from a mental hospital; she said he had been hospitalized due to depression. I never heard from him again.

Comment by Sidney: Those apartments are so creepy. My aunt was renting there for a little over a year. I would help her out and spend the night babysitting her kids on weekends while she worked her second job overnight.
I did this for about a month till I couldn't take it anymore. The word is the apartments were built over an old cemetery. Just talking about it gives me the chills.
