Hallows wiener is almost here, let's post short scary stories together trying to spook each other.
I noticed strange things happening around the house immediately. When I was younger, I had an affinity – no an obsession – with ghost stories. They say that spirits know. They know when an open-minded member of the living is around. They make themselves known to those who are looking.
For some time, the spirits and I lived in harmony. I would hear the quick rapping of footsteps, or walk through cold pockets of air. Lights would be on when I swear I left them off. Books would be left open on the table when I was certain I had returned them to their homes on the shelf. I would hear sounds of things falling, or being dropped, from upstairs. All in all, pretty harmless and I easily got used to the noises.
It was only when I started the renovations that I began to feel frightened. During the deconstruction, we discovered a room that had been sealed off many years ago.
