The other night it was business as usual except that I had stayed up much later than normal. I slipped into bed around 1:10 am after closing the bedroom door. I had my eyes closed for about 10 minutes and was drifting off to sleep when I heard a loud snap out in the hall (almost like a rubber band). I then watched wide eyed as our bedroom door unlatched and slowly opened by itself. I laid there and looked at it for a few minutes trying to come up with a logical explanation.
Was there a window open? Had air alone unlatched the door? Had I not closed it properly? Could that loud snap have been a sound I should be familiar with?
No, no, no and no.
I then got up and pushed the door all the way open making sure it had something heavy in front of it to keep it that way. There was nothing else unusual that night but there have been nights when I could swear someone is either patting my head of stroking my hair. Strange.
As for the house I grew up in, I'll write about that one soon so stay tuned.
In the meantime, do you believe in the paranormal? There certainly has been a huge increase in "reality-type" ghost buster shows.
