My aunt's attic.
This event happened about eight years ago. I was nine at that time, and I was visiting my family in Pennsylvania for winter break. Most of them live in a small town near the Pocono mountains, where there are vast amounts of 100 year old homes and such. My aunt’s house was one of those old homes.
Her house wasn’t creepy though, it was nice and homey. But her attic frightened me to no end. Anyway, my cousin, who was six at that time, and I shared the guestroom on the second floor. The guestroom had a door that led to the attic, so I was obviously nervous to sleep in there. But I have balls of steel, so I sucked it up.
Two days into our vacation, and I noticed something off about my cousin. Normally she was full of energy, but in those two days she was unusually sleepy, and would frequently take naps in the day time.
It was the third night of our vacation, and my mother was tucking me and my cousin in bed. While she was tucking us in, my cousin turned to her and said, “Could you please leave the lights on? I don’t want the attic door to open tonight. I want to sleep.” The moment she said that, chills went down my spine. I am feeling chills right now, thinking back at that moment.
My mother smiled and said that it was just an angel saying hello to us, so she did not listen to my cousin’s request. My mother is an idiot…you will see.
After ten minutes of laying there in darkness, my cousin turned to me and whispered, “We should help the angel.” Now, my cousin and I were brought up in a catholic family, and our family always talked about how angels exist, so I was pretty excited at the thought of actually meeting an angel. But then again, this was a creepy attic, so I was a bit hesitant.
After much deliberation, my cousin and I decided to unlock the hatch, and open the attic door. The attic was pretty damn dark, but there was a light switch we could turn on, so we did just that. As we were walking up the stairs to the attic, I was beginning to feel as if someone was watching us, and I wanted to leave. But my cousin insisted we press on.
I will never forget what happened next. As soon as we reached the top of the stairs, my cousin yelled, “I see the angel!” She was pointing at the light coming through the attic window. “That’s just the light from outside.” I said.
As soon as I finished my sentence, I saw something black move from the corner of my eye. As soon as I turned my head, I felt a pair of strong hands push me back, and before I knew it I was tumbling down the stairs. I heard my cousin scream, but it was disrupted by something, and next thing you know she too, tumbled down the stairs.
My mother and aunt came rushing in the room, and for the rest of the night, they were scolding us with all their might. They also closed and locked the attic door.
During breakfast the next day, my cousin said she couldn’t sleep at all last night. Not only because of us being pushed down the stairs, but because she woke up at 3 in the morning with the door wide open.
