My parents are separated and have been living in different homes for 7 years. 5 years ago, my dad moved into this duplex home. At first it seemed cozy and alright. But then a year later, it began to darken up a little.
At night I would occasionally sleep downstairs on the living room couch. Many times I would wake up upstairs in my bed, or on the bedroom floor in my room or in my dad’s room. Once I woke up right by the staircase. Sometimes it would be vice versa; I’d be sleeping upstairs and suddenly I wake up downstairs. The strange thing is that I never remembered walking upstairs – nor did my dad ever carry me.
Apart from this, we would wake up and notice that our front door would be open. At first we thought we kept the door unlocked for one night and since it was windy at the time, the wind just pushed it open. But this just happened every day during my strange sleep episode, regardless of how many times we checked to make sure that the door was locked.
One time I woke up at 5 am to shower and get ready for my figure skating lesson. My dad was asleep – I always woke him up at 5:30 so he could get ready to drop me. As I was showering, the door opened ever so slightly until it was completely open. Nobody was there on the other side.
Apart from these incidents at my dad’s duplex, nothing else happened. The following event occurred months ago at my mom’s current home.
My mom has 2 cats that often play during the day, and sometimes at night. Once I was sleeping in my room and suddenly around 2am I heard two sounds: a scratching noise, and the sounds of a bunch of plastic bags being ruffled. At first I thought it was one of the cats being mischievous, so I called the cats but still heard the noises. Curious, I stood up and saw nothing – and heard nothing. Not wanting to believe in the otherwise, I just assumed that one of the cats entered my room with the little door gap and ran away when I woke up. Yet when I went to my mom’s room, I noticed both cats peacefully asleep.
Compared to a lot of other real-life occurrences I’ve read here, these are definitely tamer. But sometimes I wonder why it happened at all.
