I am in my early teens and have always been interested in the paranormal but haven't encountered much of anything serious until recently.
My first experience was 4:30 at night. First of all, I read a lot of stories about people seeing things around 3:00 or 4:00 so this might relate. I had woke up to the sound of my door handle being turned and a quiet unexplainable voice talking. Thinking it was my little brother I climbed down my bed (it was a bunk bed) and went to put him back to bed. The door then some how opening before I got there revealed a small shadow. Thinking it was my brother, I went to pick him up. As I got closer and stretched my arm out to grab him, he literally vanished. In shock I stood there, then quickly ran to my bed and hid in the covers. Was I dreaming? No, I remember checking the time and it was 4:30.
The next experience happened a week ago. I was at a restaurant with my parents and I went to wash my hands. It was one of those single person bathrooms at the back of the place. By the way this was in Fremont, California. As I finished washing my hands, I found myself glancing at the women's restroom sensing a presence. With no one there or any wind the bathroom door slammed closed. (It was at the very end of the hallway so there is no way wind pushed it.)
Was this a ghost trying to scare me on both occasions or a different supernatural being? My parents have always said it was my mind playing tricks on me, but I don't think I imagined it. I want to know what this being is doing and why. Please comment below to say what you think.
If anything else happens I will post it.
Thank you, Paul
