Jordon and his cat Nicole live in a studio apartment in a historic building (in the pioneer square section of downtown Seattle). At one point in its history, the basement of the building served as a temporary morgue for victims of the Seattle Fire of 1889. Over the years, starting with that event and others, the apartment building gained a reputation for being haunted.

Until a few days ago, nothing unusual ever happen in Jordon’s apartment. Then one evening he came home from work to discover the water in the bathroom and kitchen sinks were turned on. He thought that it was possible that he had accidently turned the water on in one of the sinks (and forgotten about it) but not both sinks. The next day, he again discovered that the water was turned on in both sinks. Perhaps, he thought, there is a problem with the water pressure in this apartment. However, after an inspection, of the apartments plumbing by the building maintenance team, he was assured that the water pressure wasn’t the cause. On the third day, he again discovered that the water in both sinks was turned on when he returned home from work. That weekend, he installed video surveillance cameras in his apartment. He was able to check on the activity in his apartment from work over the internet.
Today, on YouTube, I discovered some of that surveillance video posted by, my friend, Jordon (shortly before he died). I hadn’t seen it until now. I have been consumed by emotion over his death last week. We had dated on and off for years. We had an unspoken understanding that we would eventually be together. It’s so strange to find this video now by accident. According to his sister Jill, I’m experiencing some of the same issues he experienced before he passed. She and I are viewing the video together looking for answers.
The video is edited. It’s a narration about a doppelganger (a ghost that could be Jordon’s twin except for his large black pupil-less eyes). In the start of the video, Nicole is alone in the apartment. She hops onto the kitchen counter and moves toward the sink. Then using one of her paws, she moved the single handle of the water faucet until water begins to flow. Next, we see Nicole drinking from the flowing water. Later the video shows Nicole repeating the process at the bathroom sink. Nicole had learned the importance of turning on the water (to get a drink) but she had not learned the importance of turning the water off (when she was done). That resolved the mystery of who opened the water taps in his apartment and mine.
The video was a third through its run. We next observed Jordon, suddenly appear in the main room of the apartment (from nowhere). His eyes are large and completely black like a demons. We can hear the water still running in the sinks, as Nicole, strikes an aggressive defensive posture and backs into a corner of the living room. With her back against the wall, she hisses at Jordon as though she does not know him. She is afraid! We see Jordon opening and pulling things out of his kitchen cabinets and fridge. He is throwing the items violently onto the floor of the apartment and making a big mess.
Some minutes later, Jordon (wearing different clothing with no black eyes) enters the apartment from the outside hallway. The black eyed Jordon turns his head and moves towards the door. He appeared to want to speak to the Jordon who was coming through the door but he disappeared as the other Jordon enters the room. We see the Jordon who just entered the room looking at all the damage and shaking his head. We see Nicole come to the door to greet him. He had been shopping for clothing. Next, we see him looking at his phone. He appears to be reviewing the video. His hand covers his mouth. He is shocked by what he sees.
Later, we see Jordon and Nicole sleeping. We see the black eyed Jordon standing next to the bed (silently watching the pair). Black eyed Jordon appears transparent. He extends his arm and touches the sleeping Jordon on the back of his neck and disappears. Jordon is now having a seizure. After he recovers, the spot on the back of his neck that the black eyed Jordon touched him is swollen and appears to be causing him pain. He checks himself in the bathroom mirror. He lets out a scream of distressed. Turning to one of the surveillance cameras, he reveals squiggling worms embedded in large holes in his skin on the back of his neck. Jordon squeezed the swollen spot, in front of the camera, and several squiggling worms fell from the holes. The video ends at that point.
I was told by his sister that, though the video was edited, it was not fiction. Everything happen. The day after that incident, she helped her brother edit and load the video to YouTube. He refused to go to a doctor. He didn’t have health insurance. She claims that the worms appeared to be migrating under his skin towards his head. By the end of the day he had become violent towards her. She had to leave his apartment to avoid a fight. Within twenty four hours, Jordon had killed eight of his coworkers. The clothing he was wearing on the day he murdered his friends, was the same clothing that black eyed Jordon wore in the video. The medical examiner found two unusual issues during Jordon’s autopsy. First, he had large black eyes with no pupils. Second, a colony of unidentified worms were discovered nesting inside his brain. The examiner speculated that the nesting worms could explain his murderous behavior.
Since I live in the same building, I adapted Nicole after Jordon’s death. Almost immediately I begin to experience water turning on by itself in my sinks when I was out of the apartment. Now, I know that Nicole is the cause. Today, I found my stuff pulled out of my cabinets and thrown onto my apartment floor like Jordon. I am putting in a video surveillance system this weekend to monitor my apartment. I’m not sure what the hell I will do if it’s a demon.
