There have been a few small developments in my apartment, but I'm not really sure what to make of them. I just know I'm scared. (thread)
If you recall, my cats usually gather at the door at midnight, but lately it's been getting earlier and earlier every night.
I was almost used to routine, so when they started to cry at the door closer to 10 pm, I was confused.
They began a new routine: hover around the door at 10 pm, cry for about 15 minutes, then wander off as if nothing's wrong.
But this week, something else has been happening.
Shortly after the usual cat stuff, around 10:30 or so, I start getting phone calls from an unmarked number.
My entire call history for the past week looks like this. You'll notice that I answered once, yesterday.
Usually if it's an automated thing, if you answer once, they quit calling. So I picked up.
I didn't say anything. I just listened, waiting for some automated message to chime in.
Instead, what I heard on the other end was a peculiar electrical static sound, very similar the the static my sleep app picks up at night.
After about a minute, the static stopped, and there was silence.
I kept listening. I heard what I thought was breathing, but it was so faint I can't be sure. My heart was racing, so it was hard to hear.
Then, just as I was about to hang up, I heard a very small voice whisper, "hello."
Something about the way they said hello freaked me out. It wasn't a question, or a greeting.
Just, "hello." A flat statement. So quiet I could barely hear it.
I panicked and hung up. I didn't know what else to do. I closed all the curtains in my apartment and turned on every single light.
I watched TV until dawn because I was too scared to go to sleep. I sort of feel like I'm losing my mind.
If I look at each individual incident on its own, there are perfectly logical explanations for everything.
But after three weeks of weird shit happening, I don't know how to make sense of it all.
The only thing I feel like I can do right now is write everything down. So that's what I'm doing. And that's what I'll keep doing.
