This is my first submission and it is going to be really long, but I want to include everything. I have never had any paranormal experiences before this. I am a 21 year old single woman. I live in an apartment with my best friend, Dave, in Louisville, Kentucky. Dave and I graduated school together. I have the master bedroom and bath and Dave has the other two bedrooms and guest bath. We both attend college and work part-time. We found this great three bedroom apartment/duplex for rent and signed a lease.
Not long after we moved in almost 2 years ago (it was December of 2008) I started experiencing what I thought were dreams. I would be either asleep or almost asleep in bed and I would feel a hand grope my breast or my butt, depending on whether I was on my stomach or back. I would wake up immediately and not see anything. This happened about about once a month and I shrugged it off as a weird dream each time. Then it progressed. I would still be groped or pinched, but bruises would be visible the next day. Also a few times when I would wake up my nightgown would be bunched up around my waist or neck. I always sleep with my bedroom door closed. Dave never comes in my bedroom, but just to rule out the possibility I even started locking my door. Everytime I would awaken the door would still be locked. Also when I would awake my room would always be really cold. I am also a light sleeper and would certainly wake up if my door opened. This went on for several months.
About the same time that these "dreams" started happening I would also get the strangest feeling like I was being watched all of the time while in my apartment. I also noticed stuff would be moved. I would lay something down and go back to get it and it would be gone or turn up somewhere else. I discussed the feeling of being watched and things disappearing (but not the sleep groping) with Dave and he said he had been having the same problem. We are both religious and attend church. I am Baptist and he is Catholic. He suggested sprinkling Holy Water around the apartment and I agreed. Things were back to normal for nearly a month, we both thought it had worked.
Then earlier this year (January 2010) I was in bed sleeping and suddenly felt a hand around my throat. I woke up and couldn't see anything, but could distinctly feel a hand squeezing my throat. Not hard enough to choke me, but definitely enough to be very uncomfortable. I tried struggling but found that I was unable to move my arms or legs and I couldn't scream either. I then felt another hand grab my gown and pull it up. I was really panicing now but could do nothing to fight back. How do you fight back against something you can't even see? I was roughly groped again and I heard this very deep evil type laugh. I think I must have had a panic attack because I started hyperventilating (I think) and must have passed out. When I woke up the next morning my gown was bunched up around my chest and I had bruises on my neck.
I broke down and told Dave what had been happening and he said that he had been having "experiences" also. But since I hadn't said anything he thought it was just him. He said he had been waking up in the middle of the night and it felt like something was touching him and that he usually couldn't move his arms or legs. We tried the holy water again, and went around the house reading the Lord's Prayer. We had just signed another one year lease and couldn't move.
Things were quiet for several months. Then the nightmares started happening again in about May/June. We both just tried to ignore it. Then something really bad happened. About three weeks ago I woke up one night and Dave was standing beside my bed. I thought something was wrong and turned on the light and nearly screamed. His eyes looked black, like his pupils were very dilated (and no he doesn't do drugs). I called his name, he never acknowledged me. He just stood there staring into space. I got up and took him by the arms and was trying to "lead" him back to his room. I called his name and tried to wake him and he laughed this really weird laugh, looked me in the eyes, and said that Dave wasn't there. It was not his voice at all. I reached to grab a bottle of holy water in my nightstand and it suddenly felt like someone invisible had grabbed both of my arms and forced me down on the bed with my arms above my head. Dave never moved. I was laying on my back with my arms being held above my head. I started to scream and another invisible "hand" grabbed around my throat and squeezed hard enough that I started blacking out. When I came to Dave was still standing there watching me. He reached down and literally ripped my clothes off of me. I was sure then that he was possesed or something. I couldn't move and couldn't scream. The only light in the room was my bedside lamp. I don't want to get too graphic, but I was raped by him. I am rather naïve when it comes to guys. I have never had a boyfriend and was a virgin until then. I was raped at least six times and each time he came. (I didn't know that was even possible?) During this assault he kept laughing this evil laugh and saying that I was his, and that wasn't Dave's voice. This went on for what seemed like hours, eventually I was choked enough that I blacked out.
When I woke up I was sore and bruised all over. I was also bleeding (both vaginally and rectally) from being torn. Dave was laying on the floor of my bedroom. He was unconscious and also black and blue all over. His privates seemed to be really swollen, not erect, just very swollen. He had scratch marks on his body also, but they weren't from me. I tried to wake him up and was eventually able to. He didn't remember anything at all. The night before he had actually taken a sedative because he had been having trouble sleeping. When I told him what happened he freaked out. When he finally calmed down we talked it over. He eventually told me that he was sore all over and also had trouble urinating.
Since then we have had the apartment blessed and have hung crucifixes up through out. We are looking for another place to rent, but haven't found anything suitable. I know that Dave was possesed during this and it wasn't truly him. Since then it has been pretty quiet. I am still having nightmares/dreams and he says he is too, but no more possesions.
