We keep receiving stories of unusual occurrences from our readers. You can also send your story via feedback form and it will be published on the site.
Hello. I want to share one of my stories, which also happened to me. I myself am a skeptic and try in every possible way not to believe different stories or stories. I am also a person who is drawn to knowledge and sciences and is used to looking for a rational explanation for everything. But the story that happened to me changed my idea of this world and I am already beginning to listen to people and to some superstitions.
I was 9 years old when I first noticed an unusual phenomenon. It was in 1989 when I was in the village in the summer. I began to hear and feel behind my back someone's breath and presence, while I was alone in the house. After that, until 2012, I did not notice anything else.
In 2012, I turned 32, graduated from university, got a job, bought a long-awaited apartment, made repairs. Joyfully I moved with my family into a new apartment, but I didn’t know my neighbors yet. Time passed. Some of the neighbors, as I later learned, were pensioners, I often met them at the entrance - they greeted them.
But I saw the other only once. But every night I heard him through the wall. I understood one thing. He does not work. Drinks. There are no friends and family and did not see anyone coming to him, about 50 years old. He was dysfunctional and from the apartment, in addition to the noise at night, there was a terrible stench.
Over time, I came to terms with his neighborhood. And one day he noticed that he could not be heard. Somehow it became quiet. I thought already, either I got out of the binge or moved out somewhere. A month went by, followed by a second. The stench in the entrance was growing. The stench became eerie and sickening. There was a thought to knock down the door or call the police. But somehow everything was not up to that. Family, work and other chores.
And from that moment, something incomprehensible begins to happen in the apartment. Small things began to disappear, and then they were found in the most inexplicable places. One wall began to be covered with black fungus - the one through which the dysfunctional neighbor lived. The cat began to behave strangely. He constantly looked at this wall and hissed.
But then the unknown began to manifest itself insolently before our eyes. For the first time, the wife jumped out of the bath, screaming in fright that the objects on the mirror began to move before her eyes. The second time I personally observed the movement of objects in the bathroom. From what goosebumps ran through the body.
For the third time, children's toys began to squeak. Which made sounds only when pressed hard. At that moment, the child was in the room and after that he took out of the heap of toys and showed me exactly the one that made a squeak on its own. He pressed it to show that it was this toy that squeaked.
In addition, at night in the kitchen, dishes were constantly rattling, as if someone was straightening them.
More days passed. The wall is completely blackened by the fungus. He began to clean and repaint it. As for the apartment, friends advised to consecrate and hang an icon.
It all ended one day when the police arrived and opened the neighbor's door. When I saw the police at the entrance, I already understood everything. I was invited as an attesting witness, and yet I was forced to go to his apartment and witness his death.
It was a terrible, dark, dirty apartment, where a bloated body lay on the couch in the room and that eerie sickening stench of a corpse stood. Police later said the body had been left for about 40 days.
As the body was taken out, everything strange in the house ended immediately. The objects were in place and the cat behaved normally. Later, the authorities gave the neighboring apartment to a normal family, who made repairs there.
In this story, I did not begin to describe some of the incidents that also occurred during these 40 days, as they could well be explained by everyday reasons. But I will note that the mirror in our bathroom was also distorted, we had to replace it. That's all. Thanks.
