I was awoken from one of those horrible dreams where it feels like you are falling out of a helicopter, and just as you are about to land, you wake up. So first I need to say, my bedroom is quite large, my bed is facing a window, so as soon as I wake up, I'm facing this window.
As I was still focussing my eyes to the darkness, I saw a silhouette of a man outside my window. The strange thing is, my bedroom is on the second floor of my house, which is actually quite high up, and impossible for anyone to see through without support. As I stared at this figure, I managed to make out that it was wearing quite a long hat, but had no facial features, like no eyes, nose, or mouth; only the hat.
The figure and I just stared at each other for what seemed like a long time, but was really only a few seconds. I flew under my sheets and just hid there hoping the figure would go away, so just as I looked back out from under my covers, there was a knock on the door. Minding you this was around 4am in the morning, so no one would be knocking at that time. It was a rather light knock, and quite slow.
By then I was very scared, I was hoping that no one would answer the door, and no one did. I tried to fall back asleep, but I kept feeling as if someone was watching over me. It was a strange feeling, like I felt threatened. But luckily I had managed to fall asleep, because the next thing I know was waking up in the morning again, but this time it was bright outside. That has never happened again, I've never felt someone watching me, or seen this figure. I was sure that I was not dreaming it, it felt so real!
