I'm new to this so my story might be a little rough. Ok so when I was about 12 I experienced something. When I was that age, I was very skeptical about spirits and ghosts.
Ever since I lived in my new house I always felt a heavy presence. The man who was selling us the house said, "Don't touch his stuff. If you leave it alone you should be alright." We all thought it was a joke.
So about 11:40 when we got all settled in I decided to go to bed. My room has hardwood floors so you can hear whenever someone walks in. I then heard my door open and someone walking across the room by my bed. I thought it was my brother because he never leaves me alone. Anyway, I felt it crawl onto my bed and I quickly turned around and nothing was there. I looked over at my door, which was closed, and I seen a man with the tall hat. I couldn't believe what I was seeing so I quickly turned around at the wall and tried to sleep. I stayed up for about 30 minutes laying there and it felt like forever. After that I heard shuffling and I turned around and this time the man was at the foot of my bed. I screamed and my mom ran in but the man disappeared.
After that night I was so terrified but had to sleep in that room. I asked my dad if he seen anything weird and he said, "Oh yes, all the time." He said he seen the same man in the dining room, on the back porch when he came home from work and lots of other places.
My dad told me to not be afraid. He won't do anything to me if I don't do anything to him, I thought. After my dad sat me down, I experienced less paranormal activity in my room.
I have more stories about this man I will post soon.
