A few weeks pass without incident. Randomly, the apartment above mine is vacant and I have the opportunity to move into it. It’s a bigger apartment so I’m excited ”, he counted. “A month or two go by and I forget about Dear David. I think he lost track of me because I moved upstairs. But lately something strange is happening. For the last 4 nights, my cats gather at the front door at exactly midnight and just stare at it, almost as if something is on the other side. Last night I had a strange sensation and I looked through the peephole, and I am completely sure that I saw movement on the other side. When I opened the door and turned on the hall light, there was nothing, but my cats looked nervous. Bushy tails, etc. “, Adam sentenced that August 7, 2017.
