The house on Oak Street. I have lived in Merkel, TX all of 19 years my life.. I have had my fair share of run ins with the paranormal.. Being the ole boy that I am.. I have respect for the spookables..|
But today.. Across the street I was told today about a secret room in the attic of that house.. With ropes hanging from the walls.. And as my neighbors found this room.. They were going to make a bedroom out of it..
And when a picture was taken
in the room.. And after the flash.. My friend examined the pic to find male and female ghosts sitting against the wall headless and handless.. ''with
hands crossing at ropes on the walls..'' Dominant features of male and female figures able to be seen..|

I'm Mike's sister. There were a couple of other things that I remember. The stairway to the top floor (where Mike's bedroom was) was between the bathroom and my room, and there were doors on either side (a door from my room opened to the stairs, and across from that was the bathroom door that led to the stairs). So I had two doors to my room - that one, and the door to the living room. One day I was doing my homework. Everyone else was in the living room. The bathroom door across from mine, at that time, was shut. Any time someone would open that door it would make a loud noise, so I always knew if someone was going through there to go up the stairs. There was no way anyone could sneak through there without my knowing.
So, as I said, I was sitting there doing my homework and I heard three, VERY loud and distinct knocks on the door. It wasn't 'I think I heard knocks'. They were also spaced evenly, kind of like 1, 2, 3. Only a person could have knocked like that. I knew that my brother and mom had heard and seen things, and there were a few times where I THOUGHT I heard voices upstairs. But that was unmistakable. I got right up and ran to the living room, thinking maybe someone was playing a prank. But everyone was in there, watching TV.
