It was a mid-September evening in 1991, and an ex-boyfriend and I were sitting on his sofa in his living room. The temperature was in the 70's and the patio door was open slightly.

He was sitting against one arm of the sofa and I was sitting against the other arm with my back facing the hallway. We were just talking about nothing in particular, when I saw something out of the corner of my eye to my left. It was a quick movement as if something was in the hallway. At the same time, I felt a Swoosh of air at the back of my neck.

I turned my head and looked into the hallway and said to him, "Did you just see something?"

He said, "No, what did you see?" I told him what happened, and he got up and said, "let's look."

We both walked into the hallway and into his bedroom and we both felt something that gave us immediate chills and our hair was standing up on both our arms!

His bedroom was icy cold, a sharp contrast to the rest of the apartment and the soft September night. We walked into the living room again and the temperature was normal. We then walked back into the bedroom and it was icy cold in there again.   We felt a presence but I can't describe that feeling if you've never experienced it.

He is Chinese, and he told me that this is why the Chinese don't put mirrors in their bedrooms, because they think it opens up a gateway for spirits to enter.

To this day, we know that something visited us there that night, it's a September chill we'll never forget!
