A night-time encounter

[!gad]Recently some weird things have started happening around my house. I'm 17, and live with my parents. They live upstairs, and I have the basement to myself. 3 nights ago I woke up after midnight, which isn't uncommon because I don't sleep well.

My bedroom door was closed, and I heard scratching at it, and I assumed it was my cat, because that's what she does when she wants into my room. I got up and opened the door, and she wasn't there. I assumed when she heard me get up she ran to the storage room down the hall where her food is, wanting me to feed her.

So I walked down to the storage room in the dark, and when I flipped the switch for the storage room lights, they didn't turn on. I pushed the door open a little further, and a terrible smell seemed to rush out of the door. The soft light of the electronics in the living room did nothing to illuminate the dark doorway.

I stepped inside, and stepped into something hot and warm. At first I thought it was a hairball my cat had left. I took my sock off and went to the bathroom, and turned on the light to look at it, and it was a disgusting black color.

I heard a shuffling sound coming from the storage room. It sounded like a man with a slight limp slowly walking out the room. I was rather scared at this point, and the ball in my stomach tightened even more.

I left the bathroom light on and ran to my room. I turned the lights on, locked my door and fell into bed. I remember sitting there hearing the faint shuffling in the storage room continue.

I turned my fan on and tried to convince myself i was hearing things, and was able to fall asleep. I woke up the next morning feeling better, and I went to the storage room to check for whatever I stepped in. Whatever liquid I stepped in was gone, and I didn't have the courage to go any further than the inside of the door frame.

Am I just hearing things? Can someone offer any explanations???

Where's the sock that's wet with black goo you stepped on? What did it smell like?

Were you possibly still half asleep enough to be dreaming? Was anything on your sock the next day? Does the storage room still stink? The pest control set out poison at work. 2 mice died in the ceiling. It smelled terrible for 2 days, until I got back from vacation & got them out. Could it have been something like that?

It's possible, I was dreaming, but I checked the sock and there was a nasty black/brown crust on it. I thoroughly avoided the storage room all day, and it did smell terrible then too. The smell faded over time, and I never found the source. Sorry taking damn near a year to come back to this, life has been busy and strange lately.

Just wondering if you have had anything else happened recently since this incident or has it been just this single event? I recently had problems with my drain in our basement that had black stuff coming up out of it I am wondering if there is a drain close by the area of the spot you stepped in?
