We had just moved into our new house. Though I feel like I have always been very open to spirits around me, I felt at peace during our move-in. There was nothing out of the ordinary. My boyfriend would shortly start his new job and would be gone during the day, so I started to unpack and personalize our space.
One morning as I was coming down the hallway, I turned to the kitchen, and there was a dark figure in the corner of the window above the sink. I thought someone was peeking through our window. I called my boyfriend immediately, and he came rushing home to find no one. There were no signs of a break-in to our backyard. We let it go.
It happened again a few days later, and just like the last time there was no one in our backyard. When I saw it I would go to the window, and it would disappear to the side of the window and out of sight. After a few times of calling my boyfriend to come to inspect, I started to feel that what I was seeing was not human or alive. I just stopped looking out that window, in hopes I would just forget about what I saw.
Eventually I started hearing things inside the house. Door knobs would be turning as if someone was trying to open the door. I heard footsteps down the hall as if someone was walking on the hardwood floors. While this was happening I would ask my boyfriend if he heard anything, and he would say he heard nothing. I started to feel uneasy at night. Even though my boyfriend was sleeping next to me, I felt alone. I felt that something was near me, and it terrified me. No amount of comfort from my boyfriend took away that dread I was feeling.
I should mention the children's room. It was a three-bedroom house, and one of the rooms was a children's room from the previous tenant. It was painted bright blue and was the brightest room in the house. It had a trap door in the closet to the crawl space which always creeped me out, and because we had no use for the room we just kept the door shut. It was empty. However, every time you walked past the room it gave you a weird feeling. Even my boyfriend said he felt weird walking past it.
One night my boyfriend couldn't sleep, so he went to lie on the couch and watch TV. The next morning he told me he heard the footsteps down the hall and the doorknob turning. He said he thought it was me coming out to him. When he looked no one was there. Eventually it was time to have someone come and bless the house. If there were spirits there, it was time for them to move on. Without telling the person who was blessing our house about what we felt or had seen, they began the blessing in each room.
