Home is where the heart is. But when you're alone, home can also be where the creaky noises and mysterious shadows are, and where the terrifying paranoia sets in. Being home alone seems ideal in theory (who doesn't want to walk around in your underwear while eating takeout straight from the carton with your hands?). But it can quickly transform from a dream to a nightmare, especially if you realize you might not be as alone as you thought.
Someone asked Reddit: "What is the most terrifying thing you’ve ever experienced while home alone?"
1.) From insertcaffeine:
3:00 am. I was dead a*s asleep.
Missy the Terrier Mutt woke me up with the "I'm gonna kill you" bark. Her and both the cats were staring at the back window of my studio apartment, hackles raised. The cats were growling. Missy wouldn't stop barking.
I turned on the light.
