This story takes place back in my old duplex; I was 7 years old at the time. I shared a room with my older sister and we slept on the same bed. I usually sleep on the edge of the bed.
One night while I was lying in bed I felt something crawling on my face, I brush it off and it was nothing. As the night went on I just kept feeling something was on my face crawling all around, so I pulled the cover over my face and the feeling went away.
The next night it happened again; something was crawling over my face but I didn't pay to much attention to it since my duplex had a roach problem, and pulling the cover over my face seem to solve the problem. For the next few months I feel this crawling feeling over my face every night unless I put the cover over my face. It was real strange and often I was scared. Till one day I was on the school bus and I over hear my older sister conversation with a friend.
She said every night she saw a person or thing stand next to the bed. I was a kid so I didn't really understand what she really meant by that so I shrug it off. Later on that night while laying in bed the strange crawling feeling on my face came back. Remembering what I over heard my sister saying to her friend earlier that day.
I opened my eyes and see a man or more of a dark figure couldn't see its face, he has a hand over my face. I could see cockroaches falling off his hand onto my face. I brush off the roaches ran and turn on the light and it was gone. My sister startled and said did you finally see him. Till this day I am deeply afraid of the dark and I still sleep with the cover over my face fearing the "Cockroach man" (that's what I called it) will be there. I haven't seen the Cockroach man since I move into my current home I'm living in. Thanks for reading my first story.
