Something is in my house
Hello, how are you doing?I hope you are all fine
I have a little problem...
Today i saw a creature (looked like an insect to me ) going under my couch.It was black in the size of my palm, circular and it was very fast.I couldnt see it clearly
I think it had many legs but i am not sure because it was very fast
Then me and my friend saw it leaving the couch and going to the kitchen.
My friend saw it closer and she said it was flat, but we cants say for sure because we didnt manage to see it clearly
It didnt look like a mouse or a rat , more like an insect like a spider or something but it was very circular to be a spider
