I know this might sound weird or false, but it really happened. I was like about 13 years old and my sister was 8. We had been watching TV in my room and soon fell asleep. My bedroom was right next to the kitchen, and during the night one of us heard what sounded like someone sweeping the kitchen floor. I can't remember who heard it first, but whoever it was woke the other and we both heard it.

We didn't have mice or cats or dogs. Who would be up so late and sweeping with a broom? We decided to open the door. It was pitch dark in there. But nobody was there! As soon as we closed the door, the noises started again. We didn't open that door anymore. I guess we dozed off again and for some reason I woke up and looked to the ceiling of the room and there was a hand in the corner and it was coming down toward us. It was skeletal, bluish like you could like see through it. I shoved my sister hard with my elbow to wake her up and she also saw it. As soon as we both saw it, it disappeared into thin air. If I had been the only one to see it I would have thought I dreamed it or something. But the fact that we both saw it is creepy. We told our parents and of course they didn.t believe us. I feel that whatever made the noise was connected to that hand. We asked our aunt who lived with us if she was trying to scare us, but to this day she swears she was asleep and has no idea what we saw.
