My friend Marie dated this guy Josh when we were in eighth grade. At first she wanted to break it off, but she stuck it out anyway. After awhile, she started to fall for him.
One night, I was at her house staying the weekend. We went to bed after giggling and talking like most middle school girls do when having a sleepover. I woke up a few hours later, and I'm still not sure why I did because it was very sudden. Marie was still sleeping sound just like she always has.
I looked over at the TV and saw a figure standing behind the bed by the door. I looked behind me, thinking it was her dad checking on us (I'm not sure if he has ever checked on us, but it was logical to me). No one was behind me. I looked back and forth from the TV to the door, and each time no one was behind me, but the figure was still in the TV.
I went back to sleep because I really didn't feel threatened by it. Not long after I fell asleep, a motion sensitive stuffed monkey Marie had went off on its own. It was hung so that we wouldn't make it go off while turning in our sleep.
The next morning when we woke up, we laid in bed and talked like we always did before getting up. I told her about the strange image in the TV and how at first I thought it was her dad.
Then she got a phone call. Josh was skateboarding and got hit by a car and died. Marie was really upset by this. To this day, I believe Josh was the figure in the TV, and had stopped by to tell us he was ok and not to worry about him. We still wonder...
