My Friend's House
My best friend growing up lived in an old house that was the coolest thing I’d ever seen. It had trap doors, a crawl space, and a loft that we spent most of our time in.
Over the years I’ve had many experiences at her house, we’ve heard footsteps and voices a couple of times when no one else was home, and the closet door (the crawl space entry is located in the closet btw) in the guest room would open on it’s own. But the experience that freaked me out the most happened the very last time I spent the night there.
My friend was home visiting from Grad school in Cali and I came over to hang out and spend the night, we were in her room which is on the second floor and has doors that lead out onto a balcony which run the length of the house. My friend was already asleep but I couldn’t for some reason, as it got later I felt more and more anxious. Finally at around 3 AM I heard three very hard and loud knocks that sounded like they came from under the bed.
I waited for her two dogs in her parent’s room down the hall to react but they didn’t…so I got up and turned on the light and tried to wake my friend, but she’s a very heavy sleeper so I just looked under the bed and when I found nothing turned on the TV, left the light on and finally went to sleep… which is weird but I felt like I was supposed to stay up to hear the knocking.
I realized just recently that the knocking may have actually come from outside on the balcony (her bed is up against the balcony windows which take up that entire “wall”) which freaks me out even more.
Fuck Yeah Moderator Gracie: 4/10 Thanks for the chills!
