That wasn’t my mother’s voice…

We’ve just recently moved into a new home, an old Victorian style house that’s more than 100 years old. It’s kind of creepy looking sometimes, especially since it was left in a bit of a rough condition by the last tenants, and the creep factor is even higher at night, but I’ve been able to pass off my paranoia as just the combo of adjusting to the new house and watching too many ghost shows on tv.

About a week ago, my parents and I had planned a trip, and on the day of, I woke up to the sound of my mom’s voice telling me to get up and take a shower, we had to leave soon; I remember feeling like my mom’s voice sounded strange, but I was tired and didn’t really think much of it. I sat up in bed, still feeling quite tired since it took me a while to get to sleep the night before. I sat still and listened for my parents, just to figure out if one of them was in the bathroom or if they were both already downstairs. I heard nothing. I checked the time on my phone, it was 7 am, at least a good two hours before we had even discussed getting up by the previous day. I was tired enough that I thought nothing of this situation and just went right back to sleep.

Later on when I was properly awake, I thought about the incident and realized that it was very unusual. I’ve had those kinds of dreams before wherein it feels like you wake up, get ready for your day, talk to people, and then actually wake up; in those dreams though, I never really heard what people said, I definitely wouldn’t be able to tell you what we talked about or even guess what was said, and furthermore in those dreams I didn’t wake up still feeling tired, and my mother’s voice sounded like it always did in those dreams, in this particular instance my mom’s voice sounded too sweet, like she was really trying to convince me to get out of bed.

Just to satisfy my own growing concerns, I asked my mom if she had tried to wake me up around 7, she replied that she had still been asleep at that time. Glad to say laziness probably saved me from whatever (if there is something here) wanted me to go outside my room.

I now sleep every night with earphones in and listening to podcasts, just in case.

FYNK James: 7/10 Victorians were very creepy so their houses being haunted makes sense. That part about how her voice sounded was pretty chilling. Thanks for sharing the scares!
