When I was younger, around 12 years old, my cousins moved in with me due to some family issues. They were all younger than me but there was about six of us including my sister. We decided it would be fun to try the old "Bloody Mary" legend. I never believed in that stuff nor did I know much about the paranormal world. I went into the bathroom by myself and turned the lights off. I said Bloody Mary 5 times and nothing happened. I went to turn the lights on and came face to face with a hooded figure. It was dark but it looked like it was wearing a cloak and it had glowing red eyes. I jumped back and started screaming. My cousins came rushing in but the figure disappeared. I told them what I had seen but no one believed me.
A few years later, around the age of 17 I started to experience weird things at night. I would be half asleep and be woken up by a noise. My bed began to shake and I would often see a man standing at the foot of my bed. He was always wearing a trench coat and a hat. He never spoke but stood there for a few seconds and would disappear. This would happen at least once a month. A few months after it started I seen the hooded figure again. I was asleep one night and was awaken by something. I sat up a little bit and turned to my door. The hooded figure stood in my doorway. After looking at it for a minute, it vanished. It was the same figure I had seen in the bathroom. That was the last time I have seen it. However, my bed still shakes at night and it has become so frequent that sometimes it happens more than once a night.
Another weird thing that happened was when I was 18 I started dating this girl. After a few months dating her I noticed she began to act weird. I asked her what was wrong and she told me about how every night lately she'd wake up and a hooded figure with red eyes would be standing in her doorway. I had never told her about me seeing the same thing. I eventually told her. We are broken up now so I have no idea if she still sees it or not. I don't know if we were somehow connected and that's why we both saw it or if there is another explanation for it. I have yet to discover the reasons behind my bed shaking at night.
