When my kid was five or six he used to complain sleeping in the living room when visiting grandma. He said all the people walking around kept him up. He later clarified the “people going up and down the stAirs” were keeping him up…….the stairs in the kitchen that are behind a door leading up to the attic. You have to slide a board out of the way to actually and fully go up into the attic and it was really late at night maybe early morning so no one would have been walking up and down the kitchen attic stairs…….creepy
There was also instances where my stepson had seen his Granny (the deceased one) at her old house.
“When I was a teenager, I used to babysit my cousin Alyssa. She was little, maybe almost two, maybe a little older, old enough to say sentences.
“I’m giving her a bath before bed when she looks out into the hallway and gets a terrified look on her face and starts crying. At this moment, my aunt’s Pomeranian starts going nuts as well, barking and growling into the hallway. The atmosphere in the room became uncomfortable, and I started getting scared. I took her downstairs from the third floor in the townhouse to try and calm her down. I asked her what was wrong, and she said something along the lines of, ‘The man with the black eyes’ was there. When I continued to pry, she looked up at the second floor stairs, her eyes getting big and looks at me, bringing her finger up to her mouth and said, ‘shh,’ while shaking her head ‘no.’
