“I rented a basement room for about a year, the house was clean and the basement had big, bright windows but I always felt like I was being watched.
For months I brushed it off as just being spooked, but when my landlord wasn’t home, I started to hear strange noises from upstairs. She has a dog and a cat, so at first I thought it was one of them whining but after a few “tests” of being in the same room as the animals and still hearing the noise, I determined it was something else.
One night I woke up to the sound of scratching under my bed. Loud scratching. Something big was under my bed, the scratching intensified to the point where I felt the mattress move under me, as if a person was under my bed pushing the mattress up with their back and scratching the floor. Too afraid to actually look under the bed, I laid there frozen until the scratching stopped and I eventually fell asleep.
The next day I went to get a sage stick and removed the legs of my bed so that the box spring is on the floor and nothing can get under it.”
