Before I started tracking ghosts, my brother and I stayed on an apartment, which was located near our campus. We thought we lucked out because all apartments within that area were occupied and this specific room was the only one left! It didn’t really struck us as weird why such a nice looking apartment was left available when every other space in the area aren’t.
Eventually, we found out why people refuse to rent the place. By the time we found out about the haunting, we were neck-deep in ghostly haunting! There was one time when my parents came to visit and my brother and my parents busy in the kitchen. My brother said he heard me ask permission to use the toilet. This surprised him because I didn’t need to ask permission to use the toilet. He turned around, found no one there. He went to the toilet and found it empty either. My parents and my brother tried to find me in the apartment but they couldn’t find me because I was attending classes during that time. When I got home, they asked me if I went home earlier that day because they heard me ask permission to use the toilet.
This wasn’t the end of it. I also came in contact with my own doppelganger. I was preparing for school and my brother was sleeping in because he doesn’t have class that day. I didn’t want to wake him so I just got out from the front door and locked it from the outside. It was then that I distinctively heard my own voice call out to my brother from the inside. It was so loud that I immediately knew it was my voice. Imagine my shock! I scrambled to open the door but it wouldn’t open.
I anxiously peered through the window and saw no one except my brother who was rushing to open the door for me. He asked me why I woke him up and I told him what happened. It was then that we knew a doppelganger was disguising as me.
Despite all the weird things, we remained in that apartment throughout college. The haunting came to a point where classmates and visitors breathlessly relate how they saw me walking around the apartment when they knew I was out somewhere else became old news to my brother and I. That doppelganger definitely made our stay a little more exciting but creepy nonetheless.
