I'm away for the Christmas period working for the family I Nanny for at the weekend. We are staying in a mansion/log cabin on the top of a mountain - very very secluded.

On the first night, I heard very light knocking in my room. Quite distinctive as knocking - like one of the kids wanted me. But the kids are on the opposite side of the house and there was no one around. This happened twice (early morning) but I was so tired I didn't think much of it.

The next morning it turned out that everyone in the House had heard the three light knocks at least once in the night.

I checked outside all the windows and there were recent animal prints (think Elk and Bear) and human foot prints circling the house. no one in our group had been outside at all and the prints didn't match anyone's shoes.

Second night, three light knocks again in the dead of night. Everyone heard them at different times.

Third night (last night) the knocks happened again and the four year old boy I look after starts talking about the "blood man" that only he can see being in the House shock he keeps singing songs about the Blood Man.

AIBU in thinking that we're living some crazy horror film?

*Murdered. sorryblush

LaurieFairyCake Mon 30-Dec-13 20:30:34

Er yes, I think you are

Make sure to put on clothes over your underwear and not wear high heels

Or wander round alone in the dark

Or call out someone's name tremulously from your bed

MikeLitoris Mon 30-Dec-13 20:30:43

Are you kidding?

Get the fuck out of there.

Objection Mon 30-Dec-13 20:30:49

I leave on the 2nd, the family leave on 3rd

HungryHorace Mon 30-Dec-13 20:30:52

Yeah, you're doomed!

olibeansmummy Mon 30-Dec-13 20:31:11

Omg! I'd be out of there!

NorthernLebkuchen Mon 30-Dec-13 20:32:01

Don't say you'll be right back - ever. Look all around you when walking in to rooms and whatever else you do check under the bed. All the time.
YANBU. You're doomed.

Try reading something to take your mind off it. Avoid Stephen King of course.

I'm the only English one - that normally means I'm the first to die, right?

I'm trying to make sure everyone knows my full name. We all know the person with just a first name is the first to die

eurochick Mon 30-Dec-13 20:32:31

I agree with catgirl's approach. That is pretty terrifying!

Where are you? Canada?

softlysoftly Mon 30-Dec-13 20:32:38

I'd be sleeping with the kids.

DoItTooBabyJesus Mon 30-Dec-13 20:32:42

You quibble about spelling the word murdered? When the OP is in grave danger? hmm wink

Seriously though. Human foot prints? Call the police or visit the station and ask them if there is any to be worried about! Contact the owners of the cabin.

Weird. I'd be on edge, for sure.

HappTeeNewYear Mon 30-Dec-13 20:32:47

Nope, you'll be fine because you have contact with the outside world.

There will be a logical explanation.

I have no idea what it is, but it will be there.

frogwatcher42 Mon 30-Dec-13 20:32:50

Ohh. Scary. It doesn't sound very pleasant.

HeartShapedBox Mon 30-Dec-13 20:33:23

fuck that shock

TessTackle Mon 30-Dec-13 20:33:43

Why the hell are you still there?!

I've got goosebumps reading that, how creepy!

place marking

HECTheHeraldAngelsSing Mon 30-Dec-13 20:34:08

you mean like pipes banging or something, yeah? grin

EeyoreIsh Mon 30-Dec-13 20:34:16

I would be out of there, sorry!

frogwatcher42 Mon 30-Dec-13 20:34:35

Maybe a branch is knocking on a roof. And the cabin is on route of the local mountain reindeer herder who circles your cabin on route to grass each night.

There will be a simple reason I am sure. In the meantime I would be sleeping with the kids.

We're in Colorado. 9 feet of snow and -12 degrees outside.
