I am currently 18 years old. I am engaged to a wonderful man and have a beautiful one month old daughter.
When I was about 8 years old, I used to share a room with my younger sister. Her bed was against the wall as well as mine was. The door was across the room. Next to the door was the light switch.
That night, about mid-summer or so, she was spending the night at her friend's house. I had to sleep alone, by myself. I usually left the door open with the hall light on so you can imagine there was a bit of light in the room.
But that night, I decided to be "Big Girl" and shut the door. From what I can remember, I woke up from a dead deep sleep. My eyes were wide open and I looked over at the edge of my bed. There was something, like a shadow, of a human figure in a black coat. It was a hooded coat and it had the hood over its head. It was looking down at me in my bed. I stared at it for a few long minutes because I was scared stiff. I got the guts to finally jump and run to turn on my bedroom light. After it was on, I turned around to see that nothing was there.
What is weird is that was the most vivid memory I have ever remembered in my entire life, down to touch, smell, fear, etc. I am worried about my daughter one day meeting this entity. I hope she never does and that this figure is not harmful. I do not want this "figure" to be a demon or something evil. I am a religious person under the Christianity umbrella. I am Mormon or also known as LDS. Please feel free to contact me if you want to know more.
