You guys, seriously.
I don't know what it is...but there is something very disturbing under my house...or, maybe in my walls.
A groan of sorts. A dulled groan coming from somewhere. I first noticed it months ago on one of the nights Brian was on-call at the hospital all night (making for a terribly long night for my paranoid mind), and since then have noticed it intermittently. One day, after I'd heard the noise 4 or 5 times, I mentioned to Brain that I thought a monster lived under the house, and his 'your-crazy' expression led me to realize a rather confusing trend: I only heard it on the nights he was on-call.
"Am I going crazy?" I wondered.
But I was relieved from that thought when, a week later, Brian and I were getting ready for bed and the groan in the walls started again. I stopped mid-sentence, felt my eyes go wide, and held up one finger bent slightly towards the noise. "See!" I said once it was done, "That's the monster!"
Brian has been working late-shifts for the past couple of weeks and generally doesn't get home until midnight or one in the morning - so I wait up for him. This week, I've noticed something else peculiar about the noise: it always happens at 12:04 am. This, then, explains why I only hear it on the nights Brian is gone...because we rarely stay up past midnight when he's home.
But, I'm still left to wonder...what in the devil is making that scary noise in the middle of the night?
