My family have experienced all sorts of things when they were younger, and I seemed to have inherited a sort of “sensitive” gene. For example my dad saw his mum after she died, and his dad saw his grandmother after she died, and Mum and I have experienced feelings of being followed or watched etc.
But this is my story. I was born in England and then moved to Australia. My grandparents and uncles, aunts and cousins live in England still so we traveled back to visit them. We decided to stay in the Falstaff hotel in Canterbury which seemed really nice at the time.
My mum and I were really tired so we decided to watch TV in our room. Mum had dropped off to sleep and I was still watching TV. I suddenly got really tired and turned off the TV and got ready for bed. As soon as I laid my head on the pillow, something said “Ahhhh” next to me. I started to shake and didn’t dare to roll over to see where it came from. The sound was a woman’s voice and it sounded like she was tired also and was relieved about lying down. It was so clear and directly in my left ear as though she was on the bed with me. I may have been tired but I certainly did not imagine that.

The next day Mum and I went up to our room, we had a big dinner and decided to go to our room. We were laughing at something and we were halfway up the stairs, suddenly I heard a little girl laugh too, and it sounded like it was coming from at the top of the stairs, which I was about a foot from. I acted like I didn’t hear anything until my mum said, “did you just laugh really high pitched?” I didn’t want to worry her so I said, “yeah, I did”. And as we passed through the top of the stairs there was a really cold breeze, though there were no windows.
That night I kept hearing muffled sounds coming from our wardrobe, where a doorway used to be.
We left the next day, but I keep thinking of explanations to what we might have heard.
