My best friend Kayla used to live in this 3 bed/2 bath house near my mom's house (this was 2 years ago now). It was an old house and looked a little creepy on the outside. Her house was haunted like my mom's. Well both of her parents argue a lot, smoke, and drink. Her mom knew that there were spirits in the house but her mom convinced herself that they were good. Kayla had a lot of experiences with the poltergeist there. But every time she told her parents they acted like they never believed her. Like, she had her lamp turn on and off by itself; always feels like someone was watching her; cold chills randomly; She saw a dark figure in the kitchen late at night; voices calling her name. Her mom had very few encounters... Which made her not believe so much.
I was staying the night with her like usual and we had just gotten done watching a movie in her bedroom. Kayla's parents were already asleep. And it was late-11pm and so we were heading to bed. Her ceiling fan sits DIRECTLY above the foot of her bed and was always on low and her dad told her to NEVER turn it on high otherwise it would fall out of the ceiling because he hadn't had time to fix it just yet.
Well she always sleeps in pitch darkness and there is a mirror that sits above her dresser across from her bed on the left side. I was going to sleep on the left side and Kayla was going to sleep on the right side. There is a small desk with a clock on it on Kayla's side of the bed. Her tv sits on the entertainment center across from the foot of her bed.
We went to sleep and I was facing towards the mirror. Well we both woke up at 4am to a loud rocking noise and yelled "AHHH! What is that?!" in the middle of the night at the same time! As soon as I opened my eyes when I awoke, I was facing towards the mirror and IN THE MIRROR I saw a dark figure shaped like a person standing directly by my feet under the ceiling fan string. And I DID NOT see the entity outside of the mirror. (Its image was just physically visible in the mirror.) I turned over immediately and saw white light near Kayla's tv and I looked up and said, "EEP! Its the ceiling fan!" Kayla jumped out of bed saying, "I KNOW!"-as soon as she got up the dark figure ran passed the mirror- and Kayla ran to turn off her ceiling fan. We were still in the dark and I'm surprised her parents didn't wake up because we were loud and so was that fan. And we were so scared!
I put the covers over my head. And she jumped back in bed with me, put the covers over her head and we squeaked a bit and huddled next to each other. She then looked at me and said, "April... Did you see that white light near the tv?..." And I told her, "Yeh...did you see that-" (she cut me off and we started talking at the same time) -"shadow man run passed the mirror?..." And we both said yes and then squeaked...
We couldn't go back to sleep and so we laid awake under the covers until the sun started to come up through the covers at 6am. When we finally felt safe, we got up and talked about what had happened and then went into the living room when her parents got up. And her dad tried to brush it off like the fan short circuited or something.
