A few years ago, my mom, my brother, and I lived with my step dad. A few strange things had happened in that house, but the scariest and weirdest happened one afternoon after my mom picked me up early from school. My brother and step-sister were at school and my step dad was at work. It was just me and my mom. We were sitting in the living room. I was doing homework and my mom was sitting in a chair talking on the phone.
In the back of the living room was a staircase leading upstairs and at the top to the left was a sort of storage attic. The whole house was silent, when suddenly we heard footsteps in that attic. They weren't quiet, slow footsteps like someone walking.
They were extremely loud and fast like a pack of wild horses running back and forth. It even kind of sounded like hooves because it was on a wooden floor. This went on for about 30 seconds then stopped!
My mom and I just looked at each other and I asked, “is something on the roof!?" she said, “no, that was in the attic."
I didn't want to check it out and she certainly didn't so we just ignored it and tried to pretend it never happened. About 5 minutes later, it happened again. I could hear whatever it was moving from one side to another, then after a while it ended.
Once my step dad got home he looked in the attic and nothing was there. There was never anything in there other than boxes of clothes and holiday decorations. No heaters or boilers that could've made that sound, not that a normal one would have if one was in there.
I don't know what exactly it was but I never heard that sound again and it definitely wasn't normal!
