Our baby’s nanny who is with us to take care of the baby during the day insists that there’s something strange going on in our apartment.
First she told me she was startled when the refrigerator ‘shook’ without any reason at all. For a while there I thought of an earthquake but hey, we’re not in Japan but in Dubai. I said it just might be the motor and shrugged off the issue.
Next was just about a couple of weeks ago. She sat the baby in a stroller (we keep a separate small stroller inside the house) and left him in the corridor outside the washroom because she needed to pee. While inside the washroom, she heard footsteps and thought I came home early. When she came out, there was no one there and baby Ben, apparently, also heard the footsteps too because he turned his head and looked towards the door and expected someone would appear!
No one appeared. I told our nanny that it must be footsteps from outside but she swears the sound is from inside the house!
I honestly do not like to entertain ghost stories, especially in my house! Not in my house, please!
This morning, I received a text from her:
There’s really someone else in the house we can’t see. He/she played a joke on me!
There’s a reason I ban my husband from watching Japanese freaky horror movies! I am a scaredy cat and for someone waking up at night because of the baby, this is the last thing I want to hear!
She claims she was feeding the baby lunch and baby Ben was letting out a small cry every time when the spoon don’t come fast (I know, we have a baby with BIG appetite!). After a while when the baby calmed down, she heard the same cry in the corridor. She thought my daughter Pristine, who’s at home right now for summer break, made that mimic cry as prank. She waited, came out and saw no one in the corridor. Pristine was napping in the other room. Sound asleep.
Our building is not new and God know who lived before it or what happened in the past before we moved in. It’s been paid for until the end of January so we are in no position to move out that easy.
What would you do if you hear spooky things? Do you believe it? Or ignore it?
