I'm not quite sure how to start this but here's what I have to say. My twin sister and I live in this really old house that our uncle gave to our mother and father when he passed away. We don't know how old the house is, but here's the basic layout. Mine and my sister's room is on the second floor, while our mother and father sleep on the first floor a few doors away from the kitchen. Most of the things that happen here tend to happen around our room and on my sister's half of the room.
My sister and I are both share the same room, being twins we have shared the same room all our lives. Sometimes at night she would wake up and ask if I was walking around her side of the room, I would say no and tell her to go back to sleep. That's what happened almost every night since we moved into this house. My sister would wake up, complain about foot steps, and go back to sleep.
This is the part that scares me though, a little over a week ago I started waking up to my sister's whimpering. When I wake up, I always see some black shadow hovering over her on her side of the bed (we share the same bed but we sleep about two to three feet away from one another) when I go to turn the lights on, it's gone but when I turn the lights off it's there again and it feels like it's looking at me. You know the feeling you get when someone stares at you for a while? It feels like that, but sort of darker. Like you know it's glaring at you.
My sister would always wake up in the morning and ask if it was me who kept touching her head in her sleep. I would tell her no, and she would just shrug it off. The worst part about this though is that she would wake up with scratch marks up and down her arms. Like you get when a cat scratches you, but more red.
I'm worried for her, because she keeps waking up hurt and it's starting to scare her. She's also acting different than she normally would, she isn't eating very much and she always spaces out. If anyone could tell me what might be going on I would deeply appreciate it. Any advice would help on how to get this thing to leave my little sister alone.
Thanks for reading.
