First let me just say that this is not just some monster under the bed story. Okay this thing is real and attacks my nephew in his sleep at night. My nephew's parents just died so my girlfriend Ashley and I moved back to my parents' house to help take care of him. He's five.
At first I thought it was imaginary until I saw the hand-shaped bruise on his left wrist. He couldn't have done it himself because it looks like someone's left hand grabbed his wrist and I noticed little indents in the skin, like fingernails. So I squeezed his arm just hard enough to leave a red mark. The difference in size was pretty good compared to mine. The print looked like a child's.
Now, my nephew was freaked. He slept with Ashley and me for a week straight, so one night I slept in his room so I could see this monster. I wasn't disappointed. Now let me try to describe my nephew's bedroom. He has a small night light at the foot of his bed and a dresser and TV right across from the head of the bed.
When I was getting pretty tired I don't know why, but I looked at the floor and saw something move. I figured it was just my imagination so I feel asleep. I was woken up by what felt like my nephew shaking my hand. I figured he just had another nightmare but when I looked, it wasn't his hand. This thing had a hold of my left arm. Its arm looked palish green and the fingernails ended at least an inch from the fingertips. Then it felt like something was trying to use me to pick itself up from the floor and I saw the sideways view of its face. It had a red slit eye and a mouth of teeth that I can only describe as kind of like crocodile shaped teeth. This thing, from what I could see, had no hair and judging by its stature, I'd saw it was two to three feet tall. I managed to shrug off its arm and it hid under the bed again.
When I got down to the floor, the damn thing disappeared. Then I remembered seeing that same arm when I was seven or eight years old. I described the creature to my nephew and he said that's the same thing he saw.
Now, I've done a lot of research and the only thing I found that's even close to this thing is an imp. Anyways I need help I need to find out if this is an imp and if not, what is it and how do I get rid of it?
