I was around the age of five the first time I saw something ghostly. The house my family & I lived in was in Cartersville, Ga. It always scared me. My older sister & I shared a bedroom. We had bunk beds that kind of made an L shape. They were diagonal from our door. Mine was the top bed and hers stuck out.
I remember one night, while everyone was in bed; I was lying there scared like every other night. Out of no where several shadow figures appeared in front of my bedroom door. They were spread out walking so slowly towards my bed. It seemed like they were walking forever. I was so terrified. I wanted to scream for my mom, but I couldn't. I thought to myself maybe if I close my eyes they'll go away.
I closed them and when I opened them there was a girl standing on my sister's bed looking over me with a bright light in my face and she was smiling. I closed my eyes and when I opened them back up she was gone, but the shadow figures were still there. They got closer and closer and then I could feel them climbing onto my bed and touching me. My sister rolled over and I thought maybe if I rolled over they would go away. I did and they were gone.
About a year later my parents moved us out of that room to another room down the hall. One night while our parents were tucking us in, I looked right up above me to the ceiling and I noticed my shadow was "upside down". The head of the shadow was above my feet. I was amazed.
I told my dad, "Daddy look! My shadows upside down!" He looked up with a confused look on his face like he didn't know what I was talking about and said "yeaahh". To this day I still don't know if he saw what I was seeing. I looked at it all night until I fell asleep. I woke up the next morning before anyone else. The upside down shadow was still there. I got down from my bunk bed and got a couple of books and climbed back up there.
While I was looking at the books I heard a knock on the ceiling. I looked up & the shadow was knocking. I froze. Then in a scary witch like voice, it said, "I'm the captain of this house!" I don't know what that meant, but I do know it scared me more than the shadow figures. I laid there frozen and scared. I some how fell asleep and when I woke up the shadow was gone and everyone was awake.
I've always told my parents these stories but I don't think they believe me. They say I was dreaming. I know I wasn't. When I think about it I can still feel the shadows touching me, I still see that girls smiling face and I can still hear the upside down shadow screaming at me.
