Alright let me set up some backstory first.
This story takes place about 10 years ago in the 2008-2009 school year and i was in 7th grade. My family had moved to Decatur Indiana into this newly built complex of houses. It was my mother, my four siblings and I. Anyway to the story.

One day during the week i was sick and had to be picked up from school early. So i was just laying in my room while my mom cleaned up around the house. When it came time to pick my youngest brother up from preschool my mom asked if i wanted to go with her and i refused, not feeling up to the task.
My mother shrugged and headed out leaving me alone. As a child i always loved to write short stories and this is what i was doing while the tv play in the background when i first heard it. It had been about half an hour since my mom left whrn i heard a squeaking sound coming from my brothers room next door. I hadnt heard anyone come inside so i was confused, i heard it again. It sounded like someone was bouncing on a bed however my two brothers that shared that room had a bunk bed. I got up and groaned sliding down the hall to their bedroom. The door was open and of course nobody was there. I went back to my room and lay in bed for about 10 mins before i heard a cupboard door slam in the kitchen. I hopped up and rushed in to see a single bag of doritos lying almost perfectly in the center of the kitchen. This is when i got an unexplainable bad feeling and i went outside. Even then i was uncomfortable and i had to cross the street and sit on the curb until two if my siblings got off the school bus before i could handle going back inside.

This was not the only experience i had in that house, once my brother, mother and i were up late watching tv and for some reason it kept being turned down in volume to zero. And another time i got up in the middle of the night to pee and when returning to the room i shared with one of my brother i saw a small female form at the foot of his bed and i jumped from my bed to his to grab him and the figure dissappeared. As well as having many nightmares while we were there.

I feel like some of these things can be explained away as a childs imagination but they still make me uncomfortable to this day. Luckily we didnt live there long. What do you guys think? Like i said the house was newly built and we were the first tenets of this particular house.
