Obiwan, I received my first story today, and am looking forward to reading more. After reading the story and realizing that they have a "this is a true story" kind of dialog, it made me think back to my own experience with the "unknown"
It was a series of events that happened about 8 years ago. I was about 25 years old, and was living by myself in a large mobile home on about 2 acres out in the country. I was working at a carpet mill, and worked second shift, so I always got home from work after midnight.
The mobile home was large and very nice. My bedroom was on one end of the trailer, which was raised up from the living room floor about 4 feet. On the end of my bedroom, was a master bathroom that had a whirlpool bath, separate shower and his and her double sinks. Above the sinks, were decorative lighting fixtures. About the best way to describe the lighting fixtures is to compare them to a lowered ceiling that has the removable panels that fit into tracks. The lights above the bathroom sinks also had removable panels that were rectangular and opaque (so the light would shine through) and they "hung" from wooden rectangular tracks. (They were kind of like suspended ceiling tiles, but were almost clear)
On several occasions, I would come home from work and these panels would have fallen from the ceiling to the sinks or on the floor. There is no way they could just "fall" out of the tracks. I know when I would have to change light bulbs, you had to lift the panels and get them just at the right angle to even get them out.
The first time or two that this happened, I didn't think much of it until another event happened that really shook me up. Trailer bedrooms are usually fairly small, and I had a large bed. My bed was positioned about 4 inches away from the north wall in the room. Between the bed and the wall, I had a large plate mirror that just sat on the floor. It was about 3 ft. x 4 ft., and about 1/2 inch thick, so it was quite heavy. I came home from work one night and the mirror was shattered. Even if the mirror were pushed from the wall to the bed, it would have only went 4 inches, and couldn't have shattered.
The light panels dropping from the ceiling happened several more times after the mirror incident, and shortly after that, I had spooked myself into moving to another place. I have not had any paranormal things happen to me since, which makes me believe that the trailer or the property it was on was somehow "in-tune" with the supernatural world.
