Suddenly, she heard a very loud crashing sound in the dining room. She went in to see what could have made such a noise and found that her series of "Green Mile" books ( which she had held together with an elastic band) had come out of the book case and were spread out on the floor in numerical order. She assured me the books had been tightly nestled on the shelf and could not have possibly come loose on their own. She also thinks the noise she heard was much louder than if a few books had somehow hit the floor.
Also, when I was staying there for a few days last week, I heard a voice where there should not have been one. My mother and I were having breakfast at the kitchen table. The only other person in the house was my teenage nephew who was asleep in the living room, and the french door that goes into that room was tightly closed.
Suddenly, I heard a man's voice say a few muffled words. It sounded like it was just beyond the dining room, maybe around the staircase. It was perhaps a short sentence. Trying to be sensical, I thought possibly my nephew was awake and yelling out to us, but he did not wake until quite awhile later, whereupon I asked him if he had said or yelled anything earlier, to which he says he did not.
(Last time I heard a mysterious far away voice in that house, my uncle died a few days later.)
Also last week, my mother, husband and I were watching a movie in the living room one evening. Out of the blue, my mother turned to me and said," Do you smell that? Come over here by me and smell." When I stepped near her, there was quite an undescribable odor. It was not coming from her but seemed to be around and in front of her.
It seemed to be within a 2 foot radius of where she was sitting. She said she had smelled it before one day all throughout the downstairs of the house. On this particular night when I could smell it, too, it lasted for a few minutes and then disappeared. It almost had a strong, musty stench to it, but not really like anything I have ever smelled before. It wasn't damp or moldy, but rather a little foul and antiquated.
Perhaps a visitor from the musty beyond?
