One morning when I was watching for the bus to come pick me up for school, I saw a white ghostly figure. A few days later I saw a swarm of orbs of spiritual lights. My mom and my case worker don't believe me, but my teacher does. Ever since then I have seen orbs of light. I have been having dreams about them, and it freaks me out a lot, but I do not say anything because I'm afraid that they won't believe me.|

Koeneman Acres. I lived there from the time I was 5 until I was 13. I knew at the age of 5 the place was wrong. Being shown the duplex and separated from my folks and the guy showing the place, I was focusing on the walk in closet in the living room. I walked in, and the door closed, and I tried to get the door open even though the knob would turn freely, the door would not budge. Dark I screamed and cried. Then finally the door opened with my parents and the fella escorting us through the place was standing there. They said ''why didn't you turn the handle?'' I replied ''I did, but nothing happened. Someone was on the other side. '' They blew me off because I was a young kid.
Living there for many years, I have experience a lot. We had lights coming on and off, water running, toilet flushing. We have seen dark figures, heard voices and footsteps up and down the hallways. I always felt like being watched. My sister was in a trance and catching things on fire. Just crazy things. My cousins lived down the circle. There were unexplained things that happened there as well. So scared we were afraid to use the bathroom upstairs.
Two incidents that scared me the most was at my home and my cousin's place. First story I'll tell is at my cousins' place. Last time I stayed the night. The duplexes are all setup 90-95% the same. Walk through the front door. For instance, on the right is the living room. Straight ahead was the kitchen table. From that on the right is the kitchen. Backdoor to the left is the laundry room. Now let's back up to the kitchen table. To the left you will pass the upstairs, and straight ahead is a single room. That was one on my cousin's rooms. Now we go upstairs and on the right hand side all the way are two rooms. Two other cousins are slept in those rooms. At the end to the left was the bathroom. Back to the Living room was a TV and a section couch. Part of the couch pulled out as a bed. My aunt and another cousin (younger) slept there.
I was sleeping on the part that curves along the wall. It was bed time and completely dark. I heard someone walking down the steps and then falling down them. It freaked me out. I sat up and said in a calm voice to both of my cousins' names that have rooms upstairs if they were ok. Nothing. Then I saw a dark shadow, I mean darker than dark, walk past the kitchen table into the kitchen. Light came on. Cabinets were opening and closing, so I got up to see what was going on. All cabinets were closed, and no one was around. The back door was locked, and no one was in the laundry room, so I shut off the light and lay back down.
