Last night, around 11:30pm, I was sitting at my computer catching up on a few things. The puppy was asleep, my husband was in bed sleeping, and Charlie, our cat, was sleeping with him. The house was completely quiet.
Suddenly, I heard someone tapping on the dining room window. At first, I just ignored it, thinking maybe our neighbor was outside with his dog. But the tapping became more insistent. I thought maybe someone was trying to get my attention, but at the same time, I figured if that was the case, why not just knock on the door, instead? Still, I finally got up to see who was outside tapping so insistently at the window.
I pulled the curtains back, cupped my hands around my eyes to block out the lamp light, and looked outside. No one was there. I checked everywhere – I even went outside to check. There wasn’t a soul in sight; the entire street was completely quiet. And the second I pulled back the curtains to see who was outside tapping at the window, the tapping stopped… and it did not resume for the remainder of the time I stayed up.
This is the second time this has happened. It happened a couple of nights ago, too, but I thought maybe it was just a branch from the cedar tree brushing up against the window, so I ignored it. But it was the same kind of tapping I heard last night. Needless to say, it left me feeling a little unsettled. Not scared or creeped out; just a bit unsettled. If it happens again, I’ll set up the voice recorder and see if I can capture it on audio.
