Hey /x/, I'm currently house-sitting for a relative in a supposedly haunted house, he, and his daughter, have reported strange sounds, and even some weird sightings.
Gotta admit, now that I'm alone there is something unsettling about this place, and I've heard a few weird noises over the last few hours. I've pretty much seen just their living room and kitchen, so I've yet to see the rest of the house.
I'll be here for a couple of weeks and I'm kind of dreading when it gets dark, so obviously the best thing to do is freak myself out even more on /x/, this is totally gonna make it better.
Sarcasm aside, got any requests as I explore this place?
But I want to be friends with ghosts, I don't want to seem like a pervert to them.
Unless it's a perverted ghost who'd like it, then maybe.
Anway, this is the last of the images I took before starting this thread. I'll take more of whatever you guys want, within reason.
I wouldn't do it anyway, but she moved out about a year ago to go live in a school dorm, her clothes are gone.
Her room is probably untouched otherwise, but I'm not sure what room that is.
Also I was wrong, I had one more image.
Turns out her room was the first on the right.
I heard some weird thumps as I was entering, and that was followed by the sound of something moving. I don't think it came from this room though.
Anyway, from what I've heard she took most of her stuffed animals and stuff with her, I had no idea she had so many.
Told ya something would happen.
Spooks generally prefer feminine vibes. Could you crossdress into a girl and sleep in that room? See where it takes you.
And don't forget to take pics
Fuck, I opened a door in her room and this asshole scared the shit out of me.
Even if I wanted to I couldnt. She took her clothes with her when she left.
Anyway, this is the room I'm gonna sleep in, it's at the end of the hall.
It's a cardboard cutout of some famous boyband member. I think she was originally going to take it with her, but this guy apparently left and she hates him now?
I got a better picture of it.
And I just heard some kind of weird fucking squealing while I was typing this out, I think it's coming from outside, bit it sounds like it's closer than that.
Explored a bit more, took a few more pictures.
The first door on the left of the hall seems to be a storage room, I think there's a closet on the right side of the room but I can't get to it.
If there is I haven't been told about it, and I haven't seen an obvious way into one.
You mean the monkey?
no real interest in the objects in the house, but if you feel or hear anything odd let us know, and if theres any way to document it, like if you see an apparition or whatever. just keep the camera close.
So uh...I wasn't actually going to take it with me, I picked it up to humor the anon, but then I noticed the monkey was, well, smiling. I don't think it was doing that before...so I guess I'll actually take it with me?
Anyway, something I should probably mention, I've been hearing sounds that seem normal, like sounds from outside and sounds that I could be making, but whenever I look outside it's basically deserted and I heard the sound of a shoe on wood when I was sitting down.
This place used to be owned by a church, a lot of families have lived here over the years, maybe some deaths at some point?
Thomas would probably know, he's the relative that owns the place now, but he's not gonna be back for a couple of weeks and I'd feel bad calling him just to ask him something like that.
Anyway, he did mention something about it being a great deal, apparently the church stopped sending people here and put it up for a pretty great price. I can't see any obvious reasons for that, he hasn't had any work done but it's still in pretty great shape, and it's in a nice, safe neighborhood.
So, weirdest thing to happen yet, I found a door in the kitchen I'd overlooked, and when I opened it the door squeaked a lot more than the others, like it's not used often. The next thing I know there's this pretty bad smell in the air, like this room smelt pretty fucking bad.
I took the picture and as I was moving away it felt like a hand was on my side, gently trying to guide me in, when I turned to look there was nothing there, and nothing around me to have bumped into.
I'm vaguely remembering my relative's daughter saying something about her dad telling her not to go in there, so I don't know what the fuck to think.
I was about to post the image but it was really dark for some reason? I'll post my responses and stuff in a second, I gotta go back in.
I went back in and the smell was easier to handle, nothing happened but I felt weird while in there, probably just the smell.
This image was taken under the exact same circumstances as the last one, no idea why this one is visible if the other wasnt.
Also I found something in there, cont. next post.
It's not a dead rat or anything, even if it was it probably wouldn't smell this bad after all this time.
I don't think it's anything burning? And I don't know what rotting meat smells like.
I found another monkey in there. Huh.
I was maybe one step off from the second one.
Ah shieet you are certainly fucked.
My best guess is he is in kahoots with the ghost and is offering you as a sacrifice.
Pour salt all over the floor, and burn as much sage as you can find.
Roll the sage up in the most expensive carpet of theirs you can find for added protection.
I don't think you realize how important these monkeys are, they could be the key to OP making it out of this alive.
After they have tinfoil hats, you should tape knives to their hands, so they can protect you while you sleep.
make some salt lines under doors just in case.
Went to eat and more people posted, was kind of expecting this thread to stay pretty much dead. Huh.
Anyway, I called him and asked about the smell in the room and he said he has no idea what I'm talking about, then pretty much forced me off the subject.
I've stocked enough food to last until he gets back, and I can ask my friends to drive here for something if I need to.
No clue. It was just lying on the floor in the corner.
So, I found a room I hadn't noticed before, it kinda blends in with the wall and doesn't have a protruding door handle.
I kinda don't want to go back in there.
I did. And uh...I found a room I can't make sense of.
No one but Thomas and his daughter live here, but this seems to be a room for a kid.
Blue monkey belonged to kid.
The smelly room is where his rotting carcass must be.
Explore the stank room again, don't be a pussy. Look for anything on the walls, floor, and ceiling that seems different from the rest.
Whats that in the bush? is it from the window?
Am i crazy or is there a face there?
idunno, personally i don't see a face
here's your red death circle photo with brightness/contrast turned up, and i fucked with the exposure a little (just exposure and gamma correction)
i did the same to the original, didn't find anything, but i can post results if you like
OP are you still around, can you get a better picture of the smelly room.
here's the edit of your original, OP
i hear you, i wouldn't want to either.
unfortunately, i'm curious and i just can't tell what's going on in that room, i think i'm looking at a shot looking up?
toward a shelf and part of the ceiling?
i'm also curious about what's making that smell, and anyways, this is primetime, i agree that the monkeys should protect you.
just get one good shot then gtfo, at a shallow angle deep into the room (like past the entrance) and use a flash if you can, no pressure if you can't
OPPp come back
if this this thread derails i hope we can at least get more info on the suspicious blue monkey
> hoping no one points out spooky trips
So, I was planning to go to the room again once I finished my shower, but guess what?
i fucking hate those things.
when i worked at a truck stop mcdonalds my manager set up one of these fucks and i cant count how many times on my 2am shifts i walked out to the register thinking it was a customer.
> pic related
i see that too now! well that explains the lighting situation
Sorry, while I was looking for a flashlight I found some popcorn and decided to microwave it and eat it
Anyway, found the flashlight.
Quick test to see if it's working, everything looked fine when I was posting.
Gotta make sure I can actually take pictures, or the wait is gonna be even longer if I have to upload every image to a computer and THEN post.
They're coming out upside down for some reason, I can't figure out why.
Your relative has been housing illegals in his extra room off of the utility room, hence the smell and hence the reason he didn't want his daughter going in there and didn't want to talk to you about it.
I keep stopping on the stairs. I was so not prepared for this.
Just remember that ghost aren't real,
And if they are, that is a far more satisfying way to die than in a random car crash or from old age. The last thing you see will literally be confirmation that death isn't final.
I'm just doing my duty, OP.
You're providing all the content, this is the only contribution I can make. These are my offerings to you for your good work.
I liked the monkey stuff better, this is just scaring the shit out of me.
There's probably at least one rodent living in this absolutely disgusting hoarder's shack. No offense to your relative, but this is messy.
Any noises or smells are likely coming from pests. The place is a goddamn pig sty.
I thought I saw something move but my foot had just bumped something.
OP there is nothing down there. Right now you are just posting pictures of your relative's shit for strangers to look at.
Please, for the sake of this thread, go back upstairs and figure out whose bedroom that was.
This is bordering on invasion of your relative's privacy, man. Unless you're gonna dig through those boxes you have little reason to be down there and even less to be posting this shit online without his permission.
Found a weird little room, gonna take a few more pictures before looking in there.
Also, make sure you're wearing gloves or a thick coat or something.
More than likely this place isn't haunted and it's just a coon or a rat. You don't want to get a nasty bite on the arm.
Well, it's been an interesting couple of minutes. I've got some more images to post.
What I was going to say with this: One more before I go into the room.
Ffs just look at all that shit. Is that actually a huge ass bubble wrap roll on the right? And that green ladder is the third on I counted in the house.
What kind o ladder-climbing-bubble-wrapping maniac is your cousin Thomas anyways? The kind that harbors poor kids in the spare room before wrapping them in bubble wrap and storing them in the basement? Huh? HUH?!
This was supposed to be the last one before I explored the room, but something happened.
He works in a bank.
I really want to believe, but so far all you have posted are a bunch of shots of a house owned by a guy with a lot of hobbies.
Not even a mass serial killer. That would be some kind of interesting. He just likes to craft. Like, kind of too much. And, also never throws things away.
That last thing on the aisle to your right in that picture. The thing that has the microsoft box in front-ish of it. Is that some kind of machine? Like a stove or something? Or are those just metal drawers?
Alright, so earlier I posted a blurry image because I thought I saw something move? Yeah, I probably saw something move.
This time I definitely saw something move, and it went into this fucking room that turns out? It's empty, there's just dirt in there. Like, uneven lumps of dirt.
So fuck this, I ran back upstairs and am currently drinking a soda and watching some cartoons.
I'll explore more down there during the day.
it's just the 'unfinished' part of the unfinished basement. tons of older houses have those, just means the builders had no reason to put a floor in there, hence the dirt
but i mean if you saw somethin move you could be dealin with rubber johnny
Something the size of a person or something the size of an animal?
The human mind is wired to see shapes that look like creatures so that you can more quickly identify a threat. Yes, there is something that looks vaguely humanoid. But, the more you look at it, the more you realize the dimensions are off. It looks more like something out of a video game than something real.
GEE I WONDER WHO COULD BE BEHIND THIS POST
OP, listen - I'm not kidding you - call it a faggot, berate it, and insult it.
Show it you have more balls than it. Demand it to be a man and fight you in a fair fight.
Ghosts feed off fear - so just be a fucking God to it.
How many people have you heard of who have died from a ghost attack?
Yeah, that's probably what it is. Still scary as fuck.
Over the Garden Wall on my laptop.
I only saw it going in, so if it was the size of a human it was ducking.
So, you're saying when it went in, it took up most of the door frame?
You should at least be able to tell the difference between something the size of a rodent or something the size of like 75% of the door.
You and I are friends now, OP.
Dude that house looks like it was built in 2002. No spoops there.
Laundry room smells funny?!?!?!
[spoiler] 3spoopy5me [/spoiler]
Yeah, probably just normal sounds I'm sensitive to right now because I'm freaked out, but how would I know the difference? I'm not used to the sounds this house makes.
Oh...oh shit. Yeah, I think so.
So, that at least rules out rodents. Any normal rodent anyway. And, it would be pretty weird for any other kind of animal to be screwing around in someone's house. Especially while going unnoticed.
You either saw some sort of horrible subterranean creature that is afraid of light, a probably benign ghost, or just the the light of your flashlight creating the illusion of movement as it illuminated a new area.
And, don't listen to that dumbass who said that ghosts feed off of fear so you should be belligerent to it. That's like saying all mammals want to eat you so you should shoot them on sight. It's using waaaaay too broad sweeping truths that don't apply to MOST of what fits in the category being spoken about. And, acting in such a manner would more than likely bring more trouble than good.
Weird room with two extra sleeping places
Shitty smell in the laundry room
Laundry room right above weird dirt room in basement
>Thomas confirmed killer op
He is probably on his was home to murder you too since you started asking questions
Crawl spaces exist in every house. Crawl space entrances are often found on the inside of unfinished basements. Crawl spaces are typical below the laundry room due to close proximity of pipes.
The bad smell is probably from the plethora of horribly disgusting clothes that go through that room. Based on the slovenly nature of the rest of the house, I wouldn't be surprised if Thomas waits a loooooooong time before actually doing his laundry.
My only last piece of advice is that you really don't have much to worry about. Everything you've shown and talked about is not only not indicative of paranormal, but actually completely normal of most houses that exist.
The only two things that are at all cause for alarm is the church owning the house at one point and the movement you saw. I still maintain the movement could have been just from the flashlight. But, if you're certain it wasn't, then there's something. It still doesn't change the fact that most of the stuff has nothing to do with this entity.
Was it though? It seemed to have dials on it.
You mean this? I THINK that's a tool chest, yeah.
At the very least it has drawers.
Could you point out the dials to me? I see what MAY be what you're talking about near the bottom corner of the thing, closest to OP, but I think it could just be a combination lock in lieu of having a key lock
Also I'm back, will post more later.
For now I have classes, a friend drove me.
I have one more class that I'm about to go to, this one let out about five minutes ago and I was just checking this thread.
I left the smiling monkey with the blue one.
It's not where I left it.
I was going to, but I kind of found it back in the room I found it in.
Not really. I've put them together again.
As far as I can tell nothing else has been moved. If something has I probably wouldn't notice most of it.
Yeah, I TOTALLY want to be known as the guy who sets up cameras in other people's houses.
Bro you can't NOT try to record something. You don't even need to actually upload them anywhere or anything, unless something happens in one of the recordings of course. Just take the cameras down when you're done house sitting and delete the vids if you think your relatives are gonna be douchey about it
You're already taking a bunch of pictures of the house. Moving pictures won't make much of a difference. Everybody on this thread already knows the layout of the house just from looking at these pictures.
