My name is Sophie and this is my first try at telling my terrifying story.
It is the first time I have ever told anyone except my parents my story, as I have always been terrified that people won't believe me or the ghost I have been seeing will get revenge for me telling people what happened.
It started when I had gotten home from my night shift at my work. I had just had my dinner and I had gone to bed. I was about to go to sleep when I first saw and heard things. I heard a little girl crying softly and I could see something running across the upstairs hallway. I felt as though I couldn't move and I couldn't scream. Then I saw the little girl walk slowly towards my bedroom. The crying had stopped and a child's laughter had started. She reached out her arms towards my neck and I could feel the breath being pushed out of me. My lungs became tighter and tighter. I thought it was the end. I finally brought up the courage to try to struggle but I still couldn't move. I wanted to blink but I was scared that during the fraction of a second when my eyes were closed she would get me. Eventually I blinked and everything vanished.
The little girl had been coming into my room every night since then. Sometimes she would just stand there; others she would just walk around my house and leave me in my bed, paralyzed with fear.
I later moved in with my parents, as I kept encountering this girl. I wouldn't tell anybody; I have only just told my parents. Every time I hear crying or laughter, I freeze until I know I am safe.
If anybody has had similar situations, please let me know. It would put me at ease to know I'm not the only one.
