4. 10/4/14 - Knock
I heard a knock.
And then another.
Another after that.
It's coming from the front door. The knocks seem perfectly spaced with around 2 seconds in between each one. It's 3 a.m. and the closest house from here is over 3 miles away with no phone service on my cell. I'm home alone, parents on vacation, with nothing but my yorkie, Muffy, who randomly started barking around 1 a.m. but has stopped ever since the knocking began.
I'm on the second floor in my bedroom. I know my dad has a shotgun locked away in his bedroom but I don't know the code and I'm afraid to make a sound. I just want whatever this is to go away.
Okay, so I just went downstairs and opened the door, steak knife by my side. I found a pendulum-like machine set up against my door, hitting it every 2 or so seconds. I'm pretty fucking weirded out but a little relieved to find no one around. Talk about a shitty prank.
I picked it up and closed the door, went to the kitchen to put the knife away when I notice something written on the machine;
curiosity killed the cat
I just heard the front doorknob squeak.
