Have you ever had one?......

When we had an apartment, we meaning me and the kids, no males except matt, we had something in our apartment. We had lived there for about 4 months with no incidences, and then all of a sudden things got weird....
I had had a fight with Kim, my oldest daughter, she wanted to stay at her boyfriends house later than usual one night to watch movies, I was starting a new job the next day, and told her no I had to get up early and they needed to come home, and after quite a heated arguement, on her side mind, I sent her and her brother to the room they shared, to go to bed. She went in her room and slammed her door shut.

I was in my room smoking a cigarette and watching tv, trying to relax enough to sleep with the excitement for a new job and all.

Anyway, about 30 minutes after I sent them to bed someone knocked on my bedroom door, now mind you, my bed was right next to the door, I could clearly see it from peripheral vision and/or just barely turning my head....

When they knocked I said "come in", thinking it was Kim coming to say she was sorry, we had a pretty good relationship. She's just as stubborn as I am, and I can't figure out where she gets it *snickers*

Well, the doorknob turned Adam and the door opened, but no one came in.

So I look around the door into the living room and no one's there...now at this point, I'm thinking Kim's messin with me, cause she was mad at me, ok?

So I still see no one...get up out of my bed and go into the living room....and I got cold chills as soon as I entered the living room the kitchen light was on, I always would leave it on, because I get up alot at night and can't see well in the dark.

No one was anywhere in the livingroom or kitchen, so I went into the kid's room and they're sound asleep, had to wake kim up and ask her if she knocked on my door.

But she was truly asleep, it wasn't her, or her brother...

Anyway...I made them come into my room that night, and sleep on a palette on the floor...nothing else happened that night, but ....

The next morning at 5am, the alarm went off, so I woke them up to go to their own room.

I'm standing at my door, with the wood part of the door IN my hand, they got to their door, just across the living room....

THE DAMN THING KNOCKED ON THE DOOR WITH IT IN MY HAND!!!! I heard it, and I felt the vibrations and my kids heard it!!! When I looked at them their faces were as white as mine, and I said, did yall hear that? They nodded and said uh huh, eyes wide open.

...Sounds like something that would freak out anybody with a brain. Right? I think all my hair was standing on end, like in the cartoons, and sometimes I honestly think I have totally lost it.

Well, to top it all off, I went to take a shower to get ready for work, this is going to sound really freaky, almost like I'm making it up, but I swear I'm not...

I'm in the shower...roomtemp is normal; but all of a sudden it got "IceCold" in there.....just like in those movies you watch. So I yell at Kim to make sure the A.C.'s not on, she checked and it wasn't. In the meantime, I reached up to check the vent in the bathroom, no air was coming out, but it was really cold....

So I got ****ed, lol, and I said to the ghost/spirit or whatever it was...."DO YOU MIND?!!! I'M TRYING TO TAKE A SHOWER HERE!!!"

And the room temp went back to normal, totally freaked me out.

Well later, I remembered that my ex had taken the kids to the Mardi Gras in Galveston and they brought home some beads, no biggie right? Well it turns out, some of the beads came from a shop that he took them too, and bought some. My oldest daughter had a strand with the two faces on them, like the Masques they wear, or hang on the wall.

Our "friend" came from those beads.... I had her put the beads outside on the patio....next to the laundry room. Told our "friend" he had to leave and from then on, whenever I was doing laundry, it wouldn knock on the laundry room doors. I would just tell him "NO!!!! You can't come in..."

And that's this story...this one freaked me out pretty bad when it knocked on the door with it in my hand. My son was scared to death to come in the apartment, even with me there. But I finally convinced I would not let anything happen to him. And of course it didn't....
