It was about 9 months ago.
My little sister and I were sleeping out on the pull-out couch in the living room because our room was a terrible mess.
I had stayed up reading like I usually do, and I was getting a really strange feeling. That feeling when you think something is wrong or isn't like it normally is. I kind of shrugged it off, but got tired and went to bed.
I turned off the lights, and just laid there. I didn't get under the covers. So I sat there in silence, still feeling that creepy feeling. I was finally drifting off, when I heard scuffling feet across the floor behind me. I turned around, nothing. I figured it was one of our cats, so I turned back around and tried to go to sleep. Then, I heard it.
"Wow...". It was a loud whisper. It sounded like a male. Heavy sighing followed, then scuffling feet, then nothing. I froze. I couldn't feel anything. My feet wouldn't move. I laid there for a good 10 minutes before getting up enough nerve to turn around. Nothing.
I grabbed some random hard thing, and looked around. Nothing. I thought, maybe it's my dad. So I went to my parents' bedroom. He and mom were both passed out. I started to break into tears, and went to go get my mom. I broke down and told her what happened. She tried to joke, saying maybe it was a demon. I protested, and she circled around the house.
We later found the window open, which was weird. Our neighbors have noisy teenage boys, so she figured that it was one of them. But I told her it sounded like it came from RIGHT behind me.
I still don't know what that was and what happened, but it still sends chills down my spine. What do you think it was?
