Casper The Unfriendly Ghost

Welcome to your new home! Tucked away in this lovely town of harmony where tourists visit often and our bears wander in society! Please, make yourselves comfortable feel free to settle in should you have any questions my numbers on this napkin. Charming place -cheap too! We certainly lucked out I knew I could count on you! We hugged, laughed unpacked our things arranged furniture and prepared for the evening. The excitement beginning our new life was real yet a heavy air lurking was strong and surreal. What felt like walking through fog congested by malice energy I chose to ignore for the sake of my sanity. Months had passed strength indeed-spirit grew. Doors constantly slamming shut items falling over a good night sleep-next to none. Anxious nights I spent awake until this spirits final outbreak. Alone at home on a winters night I sat anxious and afraid. 3AM on the couch watching the clock slowly tick away. It was then I heard-above my head footsteps sluggishly dragging. Loud and evident across our bedroom toward the hall-coming at me! Could this be an intruder-I thought? Or maybe a ghost? The sound is too real for me to sit and diagnose! Out the door-in a hurry I certainly did not stay to see Off and away in my vehicle felt safest to me. Tired and terrified I began to ask questions who is this spirit why hasn't it gone to heaven? My husband gave-way FINALLY putting my "sanity" at bay- knowing all along. HE- an anger charged blood in a flowing stream of liquor set forth a determined man. Gripping his gun with tears in hand to keep his children in lieu of division. Rise to fail he would not stand surrounded by sirens -Our Home- belted in confinement he would not let them go. Until his last shot until his final blow. Thereafter-we found a new home no longer did I stay in the shadow of- He who took his own life who dwells the house of dismay. The house of sadness the house- He lays. March 20, 2016

This was quite disturbing, Kimberly! And well executed, "Could this be an intruder I thought? Or maybe a ghost? The sound is too real for me to sit and diagnose!" ... I especially liked this part ... investigation might lead to strangulation though! I've never had paranormal experiences, in this way, but I've had many demonic dreams in the past, so I don't doubt your authenticity. There is much we don't know, or can't comprehend.
