This event happened in 2006, a few weeks after I had moved into my room at university. I had been taking a nap on top of my bed, around midday and woke up when I needed to use the bathroom. Now I've heard of sleep paralysis but what happened this day, was definitely not this.
I was lying on my back, and I woke up with the feeling of a force holding me down, there was a pressure all over my body stopping me from not only getting up, but moving even the slightest. This pressure was not as if someone was holding me down, it was as if a thick mass was surrounding me and I just knew I had to get off the bed; for some reason my mind was just telling me if I could just get of the bed I would be fine. I could see my mobile phone on the bedside table and I was just willing myself so much to try reaching it. I don't know how long I was struggling to do this for. But the next part, I remember so clearly.
I looked down along the bed, and this being was there, clear as day. Lying down on its side with one arm propping its head up. It was lying there, just looking at me. So calmly. There is something so frightening about that calmness. It knew I was struggling and it was enjoying it. I remember it was on my right side, as I was trying so hard to roll on my side to face away from it towards the wall (on my left).
I got a pretty good look at this creature, as I really wanted to know if I was seeing things correctly. Its image is now etched into my memory. I remember looking at it being disgusted at its appearance, the best way I can describe it was scaly. It was covered head to toe even its face, with bumpy thick dry skin closely resembling scales but it just looked so uneven and rough. Its colour was odd too; it was like a mesh of muddy reds and murky dull blues. It was humanoid shaped not very tall or built, and had longer than usual fingers with either long dirty looking nails or claws (I couldn't distinguish)
This creature appeared and disappeared repeatedly on different parts of my bed. Every time it disappeared I was relieved and thought it had gone and left me alone, and I'd try moving off the bed, but it would appear again either at the base of the bed of my left side now. For a while it stayed on my left side, and was lying close to my face now, it's hot breathe on my skin. I could hear it breathing, so thick and raspy in my ear, I was closing my eyes now of fear. I didn't see this part but I could feel its fingers stroking the hair near my forehead, it was gently stroking my hair but it was just sinister the whole thing was twisted. I was praying and begging in my head for it to just leave. It knew my praying was not working, It knew I was petrified and it knew I couldn't do anything about it. But then the breathing stopped, the stroking stopped; I don't think it was because I was praying for it to go though, I think it just left of its own accord. This creature was something else, it wasn't being so forceful or strong in the conventional sense, and it was powerful without it. Which is what scared me the most.
I was finally able to get off the bed. I found it very hard to sit up and walking to the bathroom (which was only a few feet away) was difficult, I felt like I was swaying. I called my friend (who was at uni with me) to tell her about what happened and if I could stay round that night.
There were never any other incidences like this in that room again. Although since moving back from uni last year a few events not quite as extreme but similarly vulgar has happened at home too.
Now this event, after reading others on this site seems unlike many of them... This was more a solid entity than shadowy. I left it a few years, trying to forget it for fear it will come back if I give it much thought. The only person I've ever told about this is the friend I rang straight after. I've only just found this site a few months ago and after reading people's experiences it made me want to share mine and see if anyone had any ideas of what this was.
