I have had several paranormal experiences; some of them interesting and some of them frightening. The one that stands out as the most disturbing to me happened on Halloween night in 2004. I had had a challenging year. I ended a long time, abusive marriage that took almost two years to finalize. I was transitioning into the role of being a single parent, as well as experiencing life again as a single woman.
I had been invited to my good friend’s Halloween party across town. I called one of my best girlfriends and asked if she would go with me. I was happy she agreed and we set about the fun task of planning our costumes. I decided to go as a hippy and my friend, Jane, went a a pirate. I was excited at the prospect of doing something special that night as my daughter was with her father and it would be the first time I had not been able to go trick-or-treating with her.
Jane and I arrived at the Halloween party fashionable late. It was a fun party with the house decorated brilliantly and plenty of savory eats and drinks. As we made our way around the room, I noticed that everyone attending the party were a couple, excepting for Jane and myself. I felt very out of place because I was single. I had never enjoyed dating and much preferred to have one special someone in my life.

I often spend the night or the weekend at my friend Sarah’s house. Normally, we would hang out upstairs and then get to the basement for the night as she has two huge couches on which we can sleep. The way her basement is that when you get down the stairs, you are right in the middle of it, so everything is either on your right on your left. On the right, there would be the television and couches, where we sleep, in front there would be a little work place with a computer and on the left, there are a very small bathroom, a room that is used for Sarah’s nieces and nephews when they come over, and then, beside this room would be the room.
It isn’t a particularly creepy room; there is only a huge bed, a closet, a big wardrobe and a commode. Yet, there is some atmosphere in there that makes the room creepy and it is uncomfortable to even look into it from wherever we could be standing. This is a feeling everyone that has ever gone in the room has, so it cannot only be me and my friends being crazy or just paranoid. We all believe there is something in this room, even if we cannot know what it is exactly. We have never seen anything, yet for some reason I always assumed it was a woman, as some sort of intuition or something.
I would be happy if I could say that this is all the room is about; only an irrational feeling of dread. But sadly it isn’t the case. Many things happened in the room, around it and in the whole house in general. It might be long, but I’ll try to make it as short as possible.
