        So, my mom goes to english classes for about 2-3 hours and i was home alone one day and i heard loud banging and ringing at my door, i shrugged it off because i thought it was one of my mom’s customers (she sews clothes and stuff idk) i get back to what i was doing but then thats when he started banging louder and louder, now at this rate, i knew it wasn’t a customer... i get a small chair from the kitchen and looked out the window to see 2 people with ski-masks trying to get in, i quickly ducked down because i thought they had seen me, good thing they didn’t... i called my mom to alert her and by the time she picked up they rushed away, with a surprised expression... i don’t know what scared them. Although, nothing happened it still scares me everytime im home alone.

            One time me and my sister were home alone and we started hearing noises upstairs, chairs moving, things falling, doors opening and closing, steps, we were terrified and just grabbed “weapons” in case whatever was up there came down, it never did and when my mom arrived and went upstairs freaked out on us for making a huge mess, to this day we don’t know if somebody broke in or if there was a poltergeist or something like that, we moved soon after

                    I was home alone watching tv and I hear one of the doors open and close like it was being slammed. I thought it was just the wind, but when I went upstairs to pee none of the windows were open. Just to let you know on windy days the washroom door does open and close really loud, that’s why I wasn’t scared at first.

                      I was home alone upstairs in my room and suddenly something rattled in the open hallway next to my door (sounded like a heavy grocery bag being shaken), my dogs started going berserk and I slowly made my way out, and there was a floating red balloon hovering in the hallway. We never had a red balloon nor I wonder how it got into my house and upstairs. I checked through every room and no one else was home. I put it downstairs and 20 min later it hadn’t floated back up and above my bed

                        Was watching an creepy stories r/reddit I had finally gotten out of bed (it was the weekend) it was 10:20 am I went down stairs still watching my video and sat outside with my dogs the screen door wouldn't shut to I decided to leave it open I then heard some loud clattering near my gate entrance so I turned the corner to check it out, there wasn't anything there so I went back to the deck to relax and when I got there I sall that my shed door was open and I could hear racket from Inside assuming it was one of my dogs I called out there names and the racket had stopped I was freaked out because both of my dogs were standing next to me so I slid through the doors and slammed both shut, a person charged for me but they couldn't get though our stubborn screen door, I called the police and they caught him hiding in one of my neighbors back yards, he was found holding the club of one of our broken axes and hand cuffs in his pockets

                        Edit: thank God for out shitty screen door

                                    i have a scary story about being home alone. it was new year’s eve and i had three friends over, well call them L, N and M. my mom was at work and i don’t know where her boyfriend was but he lives with us. M and i were both into creepy things & L and N didn’t mind them. we were partying like average teenage girls when i think L claimed to hear something. now L was a very kind and honest person and has never lied about anything, so we took her word for it. i told her it was my moms boyfriend and we went back to partying. N then claimed she heard something, and i didn’t like N but then M said it too. M is known for playing tricks & being an asshole, but i wanted it to be a creepy night. i was like “let’s be quiet for 30 seconds and see if we hear anything.” i set the timer and i was thinking, oh well just pretend something scary is happening;g haha. but then i heard a knock on my back door. i got creeped out. we all heard it and barracaded the door since we couldn’t lock it. i texted my mom and she told me her boyfriend wasn’t home yet. the knocks kept coming, staying silent but they were there. eventually i got a sharp object and blasted a song on my speaker and we all walked downstairs and there was nothing.

                                        Here is a story

                                        I was alone at my grandma's apartment and my grandma was a church and I was watching YouTube on the computer.so I get hungry for a snack and go get a chocolate chip cookie so I reach in and grab one....but as soon as I close the lid,I saw a dark hand just move away fast behind that cupboard.i immediately ran back to the computer and shut her closet(this was a few years ago when I was younger)and I just ate the cookie and watched videos for the rest of the time and when she got home I told her what happened.she didn't believe me and I forgot about it till now.the cookie was good tho 10/10

                                        Bonus:I just realized as I was writing this that it was probably my shadow but I was young and believed everything I heard of so yea

                                          My dog(Labrador) is friendly to me and my family but would bark even if a person just walks outside (just passing on the street). Labradors are know to be friendly but trust me , they are not. My boi literally destroyed some random dog that was approaching me. Like there was blood everywhere. I kinda felt bad for the random doggo but hey it's his fault. Anyway my boi was covered in blood (the blood was from the other dog). Also humans. Every suspicious person that gets close to me (dogs have some sort of radar for rotten people) my dog instantly jumps on them.

                                              I wasn't home alone but still what to tell the story:
                                              It was very very early maybe 1-3 am or smth and I was like semi awake cause idk but I heard klinging at the front door (I live in a flat) and I was like "hmm probably just my dad/mom.." it wasn't. I didn't think anything of it and went back to sleep. In the morning I asked my parents who that was earlier and they said they didn't know so I was like * _ * uk and than we saw that the lock of our front door was damaged so we knew someone tried coming in. Luckly we had two big 40 kg dogs laying in front of the door. My dad told me he heard growling so the person was able to come in but wasn't so happy to hear my dogs growl... So yeah

                                                  I’m downstairs and my bro is upstairs (we are both under 16 so neither of us have a license) and I’m so scared because we cant get out without just sprinting and I’m slow so I would be dead, kidnapped, or raped (I’m female) and I am always scared home alone and I’ve been home alone so many times

                                                    I live in an apartment and I was left home alone for a while. The next door neighbors decided that was the time to....ehem... do things. So I was sitting on my bed, watching TV, when this happens. Btw, the wall we share with them, is the wall that my TV is on.....yeah.

                                                      I am a madman in rust a video game I've put in atleast 800 hours in. I always wear me headphones but my hearing has always been abnormal to most average people I would hear things nobody can. One day I was playing and heard talking behind me. And thought nothing of it because I was living with my family and they were all here but it was wierd because I never heard my massive bedroom door open wich I'm sure I closed. And when I say heard people talking I mean they were right behind me. I turn around to look nothing. But my door was open. And the house was quiet. My cat came rushing to me but was not furious instead very loving as if she felt remorse for me....

Turned off my video and turned to look at the door. Nothing, figured it must be upstairs neighbors. Hear something again, I turn and look. Nothing. Before I turn back around, my door handle starts turning. im super scared and I'm thinking of what to do. The door opens. Person comes in and yells boo! It's my mom. Decided to visit without telling me. This happened a month ago and I still hate being alone even in broad daylight

Because in my room if you were *COMPLETELY* quiet you could here the loud *_pitter patter_* of something above the room. I lived in a two-story house and I had a upstairs room. No possible way you could get above my room since there wasnt a door or way to get above my room. Also when I was in my house sleeping downstairs, I woke up to hear that noise. *_Pitter Patter._* I also heard some squeaks and it was coming from the kitchen. I was absolutely sure it was rats. The other night before my mom cleaned out kitchen and found rat shit. It was disgusting and I was almost tempted to open the kitchen cabinet. I told my mom about this. Her being a Palauan islander she thought nothing of it. Also when we had a dog she was constantly in my room or the kitchen growling and barking. This was the second time I have ever seen rats in my house. We luckily moved out because it didn't sound like a small group of rats. It sounded like a whole fucking colony like the rat colony in ratouille. It creeped me the hell out.
