"So, you weren't just in the house?"
"Nope, been here for over 10 minutes. I was in the bedroom then came out here."
He then proceeds to tell me that while he was working on vacuuming out the bottom of the hot water tank he felt a strong tug on his suspenders.
He spun around expecting to see me standing there, and had his mouth open to tell me not to sneak up on him like that but there was absolutely nothing there. There was nothing he could've gotten caught on and Titus was already in his room for the night and Sooki was in the kitchen (that door stays closed). He had felt like he was being watched leading up to this but he shrugged it off (he's not easily spooked, he grew up playing in country swamps in the pitch dark) until the tug. Then he was convinced someone (living) was in the house and searched it bottom to top--including almost climbing entirely into the cistern to prove to himself that no one was crouching down in there.
So he tells me all this and I process for a few a minutes...and then I kind of got mad. How DARE a spirit entity go to him and not me. I'm the one who has been preparing for it for thirty years!! I felt gypped. I grabbed my sage and stomped down the stairs and did the whole space. I may have been a touch aggressive in my chant/choice of words...but that's what you get for sneaking up on my guy when I'm there all the time. Pff. The nerve.
Here are some photos, though they do NOT do it justice for how creepy it is (also, I can't stand up straight down there and I'm only 5'5 and a bit).
I had to light it endlessly, which just added to the creepiness. -_-
(More under the cut...)
And there's a room with a table in it over here o_O
We found newspapers from 1967...
Okay back upstairs.
My guy is not easily spooked and has worked in places, alone, WAY creepier and older than this, I just want to stress that! But he felt that tug. ...I knew there was something off about that cellar *lol*.
