This is the first time I have ever had any kind of negative experience. When I say negative I don't mean it was a demon or anything like that. It's just whatever it was didn't feel good. My friend SaraBeth was with me, so I didn't experience it alone. SaraBeth is my best friend. We understand each other better than anyone else ever could. She tells me things that she never has told anyone else before.
Can a person be haunted, rather than a house? SaraBeth has gone her whole life experiencing stanges things. Whatever it is seems to follow her where ever she goes. She's told me some of the things that have happened to her over the years, and a lot of it is quite disturbing. I believe the things she has told me, but I never gave it much thought until something happened to both of us.
She was spending the night with me a couple of weeks ago, and it was the first time we have seen each other in a while. We were talking and laughing and catching up on things. It was around 2 AM and we were sitting on my bed listening to music. It started out as a normal night, but then the lamp on my dresser went off by itself. I figured the bulb must have burned out so it didn't worry me. The only light source in the room was the light from SaraBeth's laptop. I could see her face and she looked worried. I asked her what was wrong and all she said was that she could feel "it". I was confused and asked her what she was talking about. She told me something had been following her for a few weeks, and this same thing happened to her when she was alone at her sister's house.
All of a sudden, the air seemed to get thick and hard to breathe. Also, I could smell something musty kind of like mildew. Then I heard deep raspy breathing. I looked at SaraBeth and she was sitting very still and staring past me. She whispered to me not to move. Of course, when she said that I freaked out and turned around to see what she was staring at. There was this tall dark figure about 3 feet away from me. It wasn't shaped like a human or any kind of animal. It was just this tall black mass. It was swaying back and forth slowly like it was rocking, and whatever this thing was, it was breathing. We stared at it for a minute, but then it started to get closer and I screamed. When I screamed the lamp came back on and the figure was gone.
SaraBeth was surprisingly calm and she had to calm me down because I was shaking. She told me this had happened to her 3 other times and it never hurt her, but she said that it only comes to her when she is alone. This time it came to both of us. She then showed me some pictures that had been taken of her and the figure is always somewhere in the picture with her.
I don't know what it is and neither does she, but whatever it is it's definately not good. The part that worries me so much is that SaraBeth is too calm about, and she says she expects it to come to her. Ever since she went home it hasn't came back to me and I hope it doesn't because it truly terrifies me. Does anyone know what it could be or what its presence means?
