My family and I are Spiritual people that attend church weekly and try to live a good and honorable life. I consider myself somewhat of a skeptic on ghosts. That doesn't mean I don't believe in them, though. I've had an experience with something that defies explanation. It's taken me nearly 30 years to share this with anyone.
When I was 4 years old, I was awakened to the sounds of moaning, wailing, and evil laughter. Quickly, I noticed a huge set of eyes on the thick, wool curtains in my bedroom. The eyes themselves, were yellow in color and were roughly the size of a baseball. No other facial features were on the curtain. Instinctively, I jumped out of bed and ran to the door which I found to be locked from the outside.
I remember pounding on the door, and the "thing" laughing at me.
Next, I ran and dove under my bed. I clearly remember having a bed skirt on my bed, and this "thing" lifted the skirt and put its head under the bed; looking straight at me. I quickly scrambled from underneath the bed, and was left with no other choice but to grab a pillow and stick it over my head.
The last thing I remember of the whole ordeal was my parents running in my room and me vomiting all over the floor. My folks obviously downplayed the whole thing, chalking it up to the average kid's nightmare.
I'm well into my 30's now, and the whole thing is as vivid as if it happened yesterday. To this day, I don't know what it was. Bed skirts aren't allowed in my house. And now that I'm a father, I try to keep an open mind if and when my kids say they've seen something.
Anyone had a similar occurance?
