I experienced this whilst staying at my Aunt's house in Devon. I did some research into the house and it was built around the 16th century and the owner of the house died in one of the upstairs rooms, the cause of death wasn't recorded in the house's documents and which upstairs room is still unknown.
It was Christmas time so my Aunt's family invited my mother and me round for about a week. I was given a room upstairs which was fairly big so there were two beds, one for me and one for my mother.
It had gotten pretty late and we were getting a little bit bored of playing twister all evening so everybody decided to call it a day and go to bed. It was roughly midnight when I fell asleep, however after all of the sherry I drank, I was in and out of sleep constantly until about 3am. I was awake at this particular moment, just lying there looking at the bright red stand-by light on the telly in the corner of the room (the only source of light in the room) when it started going fuzzy as if something thin and translucent had passed over it. Only then did I see the outline of a tall figure (maybe something like 6ft) Walking from one side of the room to the other, the figure was doing this repeatedly - I was petrified; I hid underneath the duvet for a while and I gained just enough courage to peek over the top. I saw the figure slowly glide between the two beds and lean right over me so being a coward I flung the duvet over my head. The air felt as if it were getting slightly colder even under the thick duvet - I knew what was happening because I love watching those ghost hunting programmes and they explain that when a ghost is close to you, the air around feels cold. I kept my head under the duvet until morning.
I was at the breakfast table and asked my uncle about the room I had spent the night in. He told me that whenever he or anybody else stayed in that room, they felt cold and strange. Which explains a lot.
I have had a couple of experiences with paranormal beings - I've wondered if this is because I'm interested in them. I absolutely love ghost stories and films and love to Google the most haunted places on Earth. Does this mean that ghosts or any other entities are attracted to me? The ghost didn't bother with my mother, only me. I'm very worried that things like this will happen more often simply because I'm a big believer and find it all fascinating.
Thanks for reading! (Sorry about the corny title)
