When I was 12 my mum went into hospital for a small operation (hysterectomy) which went horribly wrong it left her stuck in hospital for around a year and now she still has some problems, during that year there was a 2 week gap in which she could take me on holiday so she decided to take me to Tenerife for two weeks which I was extremely excited about.
We were to stay in my grandma and Granddad's apartment. It was right at the top and had 2 bedrooms, a lounge, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and a hallway the rest was balcony. It was a great holiday until the night before we were meant to leave.
Every night we had gone to bed around 1- 2am but this night I asked my mum if we could go to bed earlier as I was extremely tired she agreed and we went up. My grandma and granddad followed us up about 15 minuets later. Before bed I went to the loo checking on my grandparents on the way back just like I normally would do at home with my mum (I was sharing a double bed with my mum on this holiday) it was around 12:30 and I fell asleep quite quickly only to be awoken by the sound of high heels on the tiled floor.
I laid there just listening under my covers terrified of what I might see if I looked out. The sound stopped as it got to the corner I still didn't move it felt like it was just staring at me even through the covers I could feel its gaze, then it restarted at that point I couldn't take anymore and punched my mum hard in the arm and told her to turn the light on. I flung the covers off looked around the room and the room was empty.
My mum looked at me and I just burst into tears and would not be left in that room on my own, all night I slept holding her hand.
She asked me what had happened in the morning and I explained everything, she's convinced it was a dream or just someone below us tapping on the ceiling. I however believe it was an experience, as I mentioned earlier there are no other apartments to the side or above ours if there was I could've understood if it was heels on the tiled floor above.
Thanks for reading and if you could shed some light on the situation?
Apologies for it being so long.
