This story takes place in my new house and was from a few months back.
I have always heard Spirits (I hear them "telepathically" in my mind), and I sense them, but I had never before seen them. That is, until now.
I was lying down with my 15 month old son with the light off to get him off to sleep (that's how he likes to get to sleep). My husband was down the hall in the lounge with the light on playing his PS3 and waiting to come and get me, so he could take our son to his bed. The hallway door was shut and you couldn't see any light whatsoever.
Anyway, I was lying down with my son, with his Dreamlite (a Penguin nightlight that changes colors) on the end of the bed. My son was asleep by now, but I was waiting for my husband to come and get our son off to bed and off my arm, and so I could regain feeling in my arm.
I had had my eyes shut, but when I opened them I saw a solid outline of a man wearing a top hat, which at first I assumed to be my husband coming to get our son. I whispered my husband's name, but there was no response. By this stage, I was getting nervous. The "man" started moving from the doorway at the foot of the bed to the corner of the bed, and back out again. This "man" did this about 5 times.
I was really freaked out, but I didn't want to wake my son, so I closed my eyes and prayed that the "man" would go away. When I opened them, the "man" was still hovering around the doorway, and I swear I saw him smirking. After that, I grabbed my son and put him in his bed and ran to get my husband.
My husband can see Spirit and sometimes hears them. But he didn't think that there was anything to worry about.
I would love to know what you think because, frankly, I don't want this Spirit to come again.
