This incident wasn't my first, but it is the most recent and therefore still fresh in my mind when I signed up for this site. I was at my friends place, she gave me the keys to her house just in case something ever happened and I needed a place to stay. I had gone over mostly to escape my parents while they were in a bad mood. I was tired so I went to the guest bedroom, which by then had become my own unofficial room, and I got under the knitted blanket and went to sleep. The only ones in the house were me and my friends boyfriend, and he was asleep himself in a room on the other side of the house. I was in that state where you tend to doze, but not really asleep, my eyes where closed but I was still fully aware of my surroundings and what was going on in my surroundings. I was facing away from the door when I had this feeling like someone was standing at the door watching me, it's hard to describe, like when your mum comes in to see if you're awake and while you can't see her you just know she's there.
At first I thought it was just part of my imagination so I just ignored it and waited for it to go away so I could go back to sleep, the thing is that it didn't go away, it stayed for a long time and then the feeling changed, it now felt like something was standing right over me beside the bed. I felt something touch me on my cheek, I tried to flinch away and opened my eyes but the pressure on my face increased and I actually started to feel my energy, for lack of a better description, drain out of me. I felt so weak but I also felt wide awake, like something was paralysing me.
It then started to stroke my cheek, truthfully it almost felt like a curious but gentle caress, if I wasn't so spooked I would even say it was loving looking back on it. I then felt the same firm pressure on my shoulder and I was rolled onto my back, at the same time it felt like some hand was gently stroking down my back and rubbed my lower back just before the start of my butt. I tried to move and managed to get my eyes half open but all I saw was a pillow on my chest near my chin blocking the rest of my sight and a stronger pressure on both my shoulders holding me down. The pillow freaked me out because I don't like things to close to my face while I sleep and I started panicking thinking I was going to be suffocated. It then felt as if I had two hands cupping my face and lifting my head up and off the pillow under my head, the next thing I know there is a final pressure pressed against my whole body for a few more seconds and then it was gone, the pillow that was under my chin now placed under my head. I just laid there for a while longer trying to come to grips with what just happened before I finally managed to get up off the bed. My legs were shaking so bad I had to use the door and the walls for support to make it to the lounge-room where I curled into a ball on the couch and just laid there until I had to go and pick my friend up from her course she was at.
Now I know that wasn't a dream, mostly because unfortunately I'm known for bruising easily, and I moved my shirt aside to check my shoulders and on each shoulder there was a large red mark where the pressure had been, they're gone now and didn't end up bruising thankfully, but I have a hunch that whatever it was above me didn't really intend me harm right then, but was just curious about me, but why now and not sooner I'm not sure. While this really did spook me, I'm not too concerned about it; I'm just trying to figure out what was going on and why, any ideas? I'm all ears.
