Lady of the House

About 11 years ago, when I was at Uni, I shared a huge house in Moonie Ponds, Victoria, with 2 girls, sisters, Kate and Roz. My bedroom was at the front of the house and was huge. My Queen-size bed looked tiny in all that space. My bed was up against the window with a dresser at the end of it and directly across from the door, at the other end of the room was an L shaped set of bookshelves

(hmm, thats not much help. Oh well) The house must have been around 80 years old but I dont know the history. One night the sisters were in the country visiting there folks so I was alone in the house. I was reading by a tiny lamp on the floor as I lay in bed. Then the door opened. My first thought was that was odd as the bells I had hung on the door did not ring. A figure apeared from behind the door. It looked female and about Roz's size, so I assumed she had come home. The figure walked across the room to behind the book case. I waited for her to say or do something. I was getting mad at Roz for giving me the creeps. Finally I threw the book I was reading at her, over the bookcase. I didnt hear it land. Moments later the book sailed back over. I got up and walked behind the case. No one was there. All my posters behind the bookshelf had been taken off the wall however and stuck up upside down. They hadn't been when I went to bed. No one was in the house and the girls did not return for nearly 2 days.
